VIDEO: Two lows and two highs influence NZ’s weather next several days

We have a typical spring forecast where sub-tropical winds blow at one end of NZ while colder Southern Ocean winds push in at the other end.

A large low in the Tasman Sea is feeding heavy rain in to the West Coast while a high near Tasmania will help dredge up colder air for the lower South Island - especially on Friday.

This weekend looks fairly dry in the North Island ahead of a sub-tropical low coming down on Monday.
