VIDEO: Two huge highs coming in, chance of heavy rain next week though

We have high number 1 moving in this weekend and potentially high number 2 moving in next weekend - but in between there is a chance for rain.

The latest forecast shows a mostly dry few days ahead as this large Australian high finally moves in after slowly building to our west since Monday.

By this coming Monday NZ can expect a much milder sub-tropical flow - then as this high departs there is a chance for some heavy pockets of rain (might be isolated). There may also be a low forming next week for a time, before the next big dry high comes in from Australia.
