A burst of warmer than average weather is about to move in but it comes with strong NW winds over the south and east and heavy rain in the west.
Friday is shaping up to be a mainly dry, mild, day for most places with warmer than average weather in a number of regions.
On Saturday heavy rain on the West Coast coupled with strong to gale NW winds moves up the South Island and into the lower North Island.
A cold front sweeps over the North Island over Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Later on Sunday and across Monday and Tuesday a cooler air flow moves in – but so too does high pressure.
A low north of NZ next week may bring in some rain or create more easterlies – not yet locked in and one to just monitor. Next week should eventually be dominated by growing high pressure from the west.
*Please note we have no video this Friday, Phil will be back again from Monday.
