We are entering a fairly typical Autumn set up over the next week with a few cold fronts and a cold change later on Sunday and Monday bringing snow.
Over the next few days high pressure remains parked between the South Island and the Chatham Islands and this will increasingly bring a sub-tropical northerly flow to NZ.
A cold front moves over the South Island on Thursday then another moves over both islands this weekend. On Monday a third cold front moves in with a snowy southerly (for the mountains and ranges).
Next week sees more dry weather and westerlies for many parts of the country.
