VIDEO: Westerlies about to kick in and 3 lows will influence NZ's weather too


We have three lows which will affect New Zealand’s weather over the rest of October with westerly winds the main theme in the week or two ahead.

The first low arrives on Friday and brings heavy rain to the West Coast and mild but brisk nor’westers to other parts further north.

The second low is next week and is well south of NZ but helps encourage a colder Tuesday/Wednesday set up.

The third low is hinted at for around Labour Weekend - again in the Southern Ocean which should see more westerly quarter winds blowing.

Please note we have no weather video on Friday, we’re back again on Monday! If you need extra weather data don’t forget our new data website: RuralWeather.co.nz
