The start of summer may be written on many of our calendars next week but the spring pattern this year, partially fueled by El Nino, is definitely with us.
In fact WeatherWatch.co.nz is predicting a surge in spring westerly winds for the end of November and start of December.
While El Nino may still pan out to cause serious dry problems for NZ later in summer, for now, many parts of New Zealand are enjoying the changeable weather.
We track this week’s weather â€“ which includes more rain and strong winds.
