VIDEO: Big high rolling on in this weekend, sub-tropical rain event next week

A huge high from the west is moving in this weekend bringing mostly dry weather, light winds and mild afternoons. In fact the afternoons this weekend look warmer than average (but the nights look cooler than normal).

Next week starts off warm and settled with high pressure departing and sub-tropical northerly quarter winds moving in.

After that we have a sub-tropical low (or a rainmaker with sub-tropical connections) which may bring a burst of wind and rain to the North Island mid week.
