We have a change in the weather pattern, away from highs dominating to lows running things for a while.
This week kicks off colder than average in many places, especially the South Island, with colder southerlies and below normal daytime highs. This spreads into the North Island on Monday too.
The next couple of days are cooler, cloudier and wetter. Things dry out again Thursday and Friday ahead of the next low which starts to move in this weekend with showers.
This second low may linger until next Tuesday and finally may bring rain to very dry North Island regions. One to keep an eye on.
