Summer's back: Next week to be a scorcher

It's been a crisp week for the country, with chilly mornings and cool evenings throughout New Zealand.

Our unseasonably cool weather isn't uncommon - New Zealand's location on earth means the occasional southerly change, which can bring frost and even snow over the summer months.

But if these temperatures have you down - don't worry. According to WeatherWatch, next week's temperatures are going to push back up towards the 30s on both islands.

High pressure is set to expand over the country and by Sunday the country will be basking in the warmth once again.

Central Otago, inland Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough, King Country and Waikato all have highs of around 27 degrees on Sunday and Monday.

The rest of the country is looking at temperatures between 22 and 25 degrees.

Prepare yourself though, as we've still got a couple of days of wintry weather until the sun comes out again on Friday.
