A typical Autumn blast is on the way this weekend with the potential for severe rain warnings, wind warnings, snow alerts and marine warnings.
Up to 200mm may fall on the West Coast while eastern parts of the North Island may have highs up to 24 degrees on Saturday under sunny skies and norâ€™westers.
Before this all arrives most places have settled weather with ANZAC Day look settled and dry across about 85 to 90% of NZ. Next week starts off a bit wintry – but high pressure looks likely to roll in later.
**Please note, due to the short week this week with ANZAC Day our next video update wonâ€™t be until Monday April 29th**
