VIDEO: More westerlies for NZ, more dry for Australia

We have the latest 5 day rain maps for both New Zealand and Australia - and the Aussie one is quite significant.

Over NZ we have more spring westerlies over the next week with driest weather in the north, warmest in the north east, wettest on the West Coast and coolest in southern NZ.

Next week a low tracks over NZ followed by, potentially, a nationwide high pressure system.
