VIDEO: High pressure dominates but next week the sub-tropics wake up

Mild afternoons for this time of year but cold nights seems to be the theme this week as an enormous belt of high pressure slowly moves in.

This high - which is wider than Australia - will influence our weather bringing mostly dry weather and clear skies for this week and into the weekend too.

Next week the high slowly starts to depart to the east but it will take until mid week to do so. At that point - around Tuesday or Wednesday - we may get some sub-tropical rain.

Either way, milder sub-tropical airflows arrive by Sunday PM in the north and spreads to many other places by Monday.
