Weather Video: Wet weather for some this weekend, windy westerlies next week for many

An area of low pressure (fairly weak) will affect New Zealand this weekend bringing some heavy rain, plenty of cloudy areas, but also dry spells thanks to our mountains and ranges.

By next week winds swing northerly then westerly - with plenty of westerlies blowing across next week once again.

A number of regions look milder than usual, even despite a slight cool down for some this weekend.

Heaviest rain this weekend will be around Gisborne and East Cape.
