You'll probably be seeing scenes like that just maybe down south, you've been thinking of some firewood, you'll be bringing it in already.
The main forecast starts with a gem (Vined, below): It does look like Mother Nature will throw a bit of everything at us over the next few days, even a small kitchen sink just sort of squeezes in the side there.
The floodgates of the Antarctic, ready, one two three, boom [sweeps arms upwards], they're open.
Monday is the real [sharp intake of breath, then claws gesture] sort of bark-ish, bite-ish day of Mother Nature.
So, extra layers, raincoats. Mother Nature saying, 'h-ha, I'm here.'
Autumn setting in It's as the week progresses that's when we start seeing Mother Nature go 'grrr' like that.

It's Corb's Cloud Class again:
Altocumulus undulatus, undulating clouds almost telling you there's stuff going on the higher levels of the atmosphere.
Daniel Corbett looks like Peter Capaldi
Well, that's according to YouTube user Jonathon Davies. He devotes most of a five minute video comparing the two, going from "I'm pretty sure they're the same person," to "he looks exactly the same, he looks similar."
The video comparing two suit-wearing, white, British men of slim build with greyish hair is embedded below.
A lovely-looking shot, almost like flying saucers, the altocumulus lenticularis, the [shrugs] professional meteorological name for clouds going up over the mountains and forming that wave-like motion.
It's just showers over the North Island for Sunday, when the bunnies are hopping round with the eggs.
Think of it just like a little piece of a shoelace of a front [gestures holding shoelace].
The Easter Bunny's not going to be done up in the raincoat.
Collective gasp; Dan featured in a piece on the TVNZ website about the weather for the Easter which I thought I'd saved to watch properly later, but have since discovered I did not. All is not lost, one Dan-ism was noted: You can almost imagine the Easter Bunny will be out there in the board shorts.
Love this guy. Love. This. Guy. He has proven every night during the weather that he has the moves to divide an entire nation, and even magically bring on both rain and shine. His dance partner? The North Island (the South Island would not have a bar of his nonsense). If TV1 have an issue letting him go, Hickey would step up to the plate in a flash.
Signature move: Spirit fingers, obviously. And a rain dance. And the moonwalk. Because of tides.
Wait... what's that link in the text there...? Something about Dan which has completely passed me by?!
The pro-Corbett camp were warm and welcoming in their responses to our new spidery shaman, commending his shadow puppet hands and well-fitted suits:
"He’s adorable, let’s keep him, with a nibble here, a nibble there." – Grizelda
"He is a breath of fresh air. A true eccentric who isn’t doing a Jim Hickey impersonation. Rare." – yourcrazy
"We thought it was just our family that sits down each night filled with anticipation of what the meteorolamagican is going to delight us with!" – Kate Alice Bruning
"We never watched the weather before but now we all sit in front of the tele re-enacting his hand gestures. Like a tai chi class in the living room really!" – Em
Through an in-depth series of tally charts, calculations and scribbling on blackboards, I boiled down what middle New Zealand thinks about their new rain man:So there we have it. Despite the cold front of haters moving in, Corbett has endured like a suit-wearing lizard in an endless blizzard.
Bit of a narrow margin of victory there, but that's the Marmite effect for you. I am ever-confident that Dan's presenting genius will win them over in the end.
