A south westerly flow is going to spread across New Zealand ahead of milder and stronger nor’westers during the weekend.
The change in wind direction will mean showery and cool conditions in southern and western regions of both islands but should see fairly dry, sunny and mild conditions for those in the east.
The south west flow will be short lived – a sure sign of spring – with winds dying out during Saturday before a strong nor’wester kicks in late Saturday in the south and across most of the nation on Sunday.
It’s like the incoming nor’wester will prompt some warnings in central and eastern areas on Sunday.
Next week should see a continuation of the mixture of northerly and southerly wind flows.

The weather for tommorow fri pm(southerly change poss thunder and hail) and for monday (heavy rain) according to the metservice for wellington/Kapiti sounds horrible, what does weather watch make of it?

Definitely a risk of some heavy showers tomorrow in that part of the country but we think it may only be as that cold front rolls through in the afternoon.
Monday looks stormy – we think wind will be more of a feature at this early stage.
