VIDEO: Spring westerlies mean more rain, wind - and dry

Depending on where you live the forecast coming up is either a wetter, windier and cooler one - or a windier, drier and warmer one. The common factor - wind.

We have more westerly quarter winds, tilting warmer nor’west at times, colder sou’west at other times.

Eastern areas will be mainly dry and mild overall as a result of this set up.

This weekend some regions even get sub-tropical winds returning, especially around the North Island.
