UPDATED 6:01pm -- There's snow on the way across the weekend for some parts of the country - so we wanted to bring you our outlook for different regions, and let everyone know what to expect for the next few days.
When we at WeatherWatch.co.nz first discussed the idea for this week's poll, there was a bit of skepticism around the place - as to whether we would see anyone at all who hasn't been to both islands of New Zealand.
The end of a more settled week is upon us - just in time for the rough stuff to move in at both ends of the country this weekend!
Well, it's here after a mixed bag of a week - a deep low which will really stir things up, and may cause a couple of headaches in some parts of the North Island.
A rapidly deepening low is heading towards the upper North Island on Saturday bringing more rain and wind...and it will continue to deepen as it crosses the country, then clears away to the east on Sunday.
Normally when severe weather is coming in it's fairly clear cut as to where the rain will go and where the winds will be. However when a deep low forms within 24 hours we must rely on computer guidance more than usual - then on top of that add a layer of knowledge from "previous experience" with similar rapidly deepening lows in the north.
The damage bill for agriculture in the devastating floods and storms in the Hunter Valley last month is now over $100 million.
That is not including other infrastructure losses in roads, bridges and telecommunications.
More than 1,000 cattle have been lost, kilometres of fencing are still to be repaired and more than 40,000 chickens were killed by the floods and storms.
Today's outlook is pretty docile for the most part, though late on in the day there could be some potentially heavy falls in places - so it's something to look out for.
