Weather Video: High rolls in, new low looms and Philip Duncan bring you your weekend forecast – plus a look at next week.

In today’s video:

  • Skies are clearing (slowly) across NZ for the weekend.  Cloudy periods remain in the west but sunny in the east and in the middle. 
  • Cool nights and mild days will be the general trend for the weekend with light winds.
  • A northerly flow will grow from the south and head northwards later on Sunday and into Monday.
  • A warm start for next week as a new low forms in the Tasman and pulls down northerlies – some coming from the sub-tropics.
  • Heavy rain possible for the West Coast on Tuesday and across the North Island on Wednesday and early Thursday.
  • Plus we have a video of a brilliant rainbow right over the top of Albany – in the exact same place as the deadly tornado earlier this month.
