A big high is exiting eastern Australia this weekend and will track in to the upper North Island of NZ, creating a windier westerly flow for next week.
This set up will allow eastern and northern parts of NZ to dry out following recent heavy rain – while frosty weather briefly impacts eastern inland Australia tonight/Saturday morning, and possibly some parts of NZ on Sunday morning and again overnight Sunday/Monday.
Generally speaking, westerlies dominate much of the southern half of Australia and the NZ area for the next week ahead – although a brief southerly this weekend in NZ will drop temperatures before milder winds arrive next week.
Of course not everyone will find the weather positive – but with fewer chances for severe weather it gives people a bit of a breather from recent conditions.
