Colder southerly on the way, more rain coming this weekend

We have a polar southerly on the way for the next 24 hours before things do finally warm up, calm down and dry out in a number of places.

However by Friday rain returns to the West Coast and this weekend we see more rain pushing over the North Island with another colder change behind it. More snow for the ski fields is a positive.

The negative is the cold air will be very tough over the next 48 hours for some newborn livestock, we have some special new maps to show you which help you see the colder, windier, change moving in.
