New Zealand’s first long weekend in months is looking far less windy than previous weeks have been, but there may be some wet weather in the north and south – and a few showers in the east.
Despite that, it’s actually a mainly dry forecast for many places with a Sunday burst of eastern showers and a temperature drop. By Monday milder northerly winds quickly return lifting temperatures.
In Australia a low will deepen this weekend and bring heavy rain and wind around Tasmania – with cooler showers into Adelaide and Melbourne.
We have details on NZ and Australia weather through to Tuesday next week.
