A series of several low pressure systems will be tracking through New Zealand in an active pattern into early next week. This will lead to off and on rounds of rain and mountain snow for the country.
Through this weekend up to 50 mm of rain will fall, with the largest totals actually shifting to the eastern side of the country.
Snow in the Southern Alps will have as much as 15 cm through Sunday.
Temperatures generally around to slightly above average through Sunday – but colder weather next week will see average to below average temperatures (by day) spreading up the country for a time.
