Here's a snippet of what went on in July 2011: Coastalwatch Chief Forecaster Ben Macartney said, "The longevity of this swell episode was linked to a very large, complex low that became established beneath the Tasman Sea last Wednesday July 6, 2011.

"The low complex remained anchored deep beneath New Zealand; its eastward migration inhibited by a large downstream high centred over the Pacific Ocean.

"The low was reinforced by a succession of polar storms and frontal systems tracking beneath the continent this week, sustaining a gargantuan low pressure system that’s still occupying a vast area of the Southern Ocean below the South Island."
