A lot to cover in this weather video – gales for Wellington, Central NZ and eastern areas. Heavy rain for the West Coast. Hot winds in the north and cool winds in the south. The next few days are dominated by a large low pressure system in the Southern Ocean and will push up a strong west to south west wind flow across New Zealand – which eases late Sunday bringing, hopefully, a fairly settled Labour Day Monday. There may be some cloud in the west and even the odd isolated shower – but for the most part Monday looks to be much calmer for most places.
