Weather Video: Changeable weekend forecast for NZ

Another large area of low pressure will cross New Zealand this weekend and early next week bringing more rain, wind, isolated thunder – but also sun and warmth in the mix too.

It’s not as powerful as the low last weekend so there should be warmer weather, more sunny spells and a variety of wind directions.

Basically, Friday sees another spring front reach the West Coast as windy nor’westers move into North Canterbury and Cook Strait area.

This front will pass over the North Island overnight Friday/early Saturday. The weekend sees westerlies ahead of the next cold front on Sunday, which makes way for a colder southerly change later in the day for the South Island and by Monday will again be a nationwide blustery, colder, southerly. By Tuesday low pressure looks to dominate the North Island while high pressure builds in the South.
