VIDEO: October kicks off with 3 cold fronts in 5 days

We have the latest on the next burst of wind and rain moving up the country ahead of a brief warming up phase around Friday in the south and Saturday in the north.

However, on Saturday Cold Front Number 3 arrives bringing yet again another colder south to south west change and a burst of rain and showers - reaching the upper North Island at night.

Here’s the good news for many - high pressure rolls in on Sunday and expands on Monday.

In fact by Monday a sub-tropical breeze could be drifting back for some.
