The westerlies are back and we have them blowing off and on basically for the rest of the month now. This pushes up rainfall totals in western areas and drops them in eastern areas.
It also makes for milder weather in the east, as we’re seeing this weekend with highs into the low 20s for some.
However winds do tilt colder south west at times and cooler air will see rain falling as snow through the Southern Alps.
