Parts of Australia have enjoyed unusually warm weather across the weekend thanks to a large high that fed down warm northerly winds along the eastern coastline.
Brisbane is seeing highs well into the mid 20s while Sydney climbed to 21 degrees on Saturday with clear skies.
However huge seas, fuelled by the large low in the Tasman Sea that brought torrential rain to New Zealand, pounded the coastline with waves several metres high.
In Melbourne it was a different story as a new low – one that will impact New Zealand from Tuesday – pushed through. Damaging gusts to 100km/h were reported.
