Weather Video: Big Spring blast coming this weekend


The weather nationwide hasn’t been too rough lately with very few severe weather warnings issued so far this spring - but that might change this Saturday and Sunday as a blast of gale to severe gale westerlies moves in along with heavy, slow moving, rain on the West Coast.

Over the rest of the working week we have a bit of a ‘one day on, one day off’ pattern where one day is windy, wet and colder and the following day is sunny, calm and warmer. This pattern sticks around NZ for the next few days, until the westerly blast this weekend.

By next week westerlies look more dominant which will warm up many regions but make for windier weather from the lower South Island southwards, wetter weather in the west and drier weather in the east.
