VIDEO: Typical spring pattern now in play over NZ

We have warmer than average weather for most of NZ over the next couple of days ahead of the next cold front moving up the South Island on Friday and the North Island overnight and into Saturday.
It’s not a very cold set up though with temperatures mainly resetting back to normal after a warmer than average Thursday and Friday.
The weekend sees showers in both islands but large dry areas.
Next week, the windy westerlies return - warm to start with, then a cooler change mid-week.
