VIDEO: Sub-tropical northerlies this weekend, more rain for NZ on Monday


We have warmer weather coming in this weekend as an enormous high near the Chatham Islands drifts away from us and pulls down sub-tropical N to NE winds.

On Sunday these winds turn more N to NW and will make for a warm night and day. It’s all ahead of a cold front connected to the remnants of ex-cyclone Trevor which will bring in some rain to NZ on Monday.

The totals vary across the country so we take a look at the forecast rainfall accumulation between now and next Tuesday.

High pressure returns by Wednesday and lasts until next weekend.
