VIDEO: Smoke from Australia, a West Coast deluge and a Monday cool change


Our video this weekend is packed full of info as we track the raging Australian bush-fires and the huge smoke plume being generated across the Tasman Sea and parts of New Zealand.

We’re tracking the West Coast deluge as another 300mm+ is forecast for some areas with spillover into Lake Wanaka which is already flooding.

We also have a hotter than normal weekend with a few thunderstorms developing - all ahead of a cooler change nationwide on Monday (that is very short lived).
