VIDEO: Your Labour Weekend Forecast

We have a detailed update on the weather across the long weekend as a rapid warm up moves up the country.

Heavy rain on the West Coast and gusty winds around the South Island and Cook Strait are probably the main negatives.

Monday sees a cool down in coastal Southland and Otago, otherwise most regions have a warm long weekend.

Sou’Westers in Auckland will take another day to ease, finally fading out on Saturday night with a warmer nor’wester on Sunday.
