Newsworthy is extending Māori Language Week with our own Te Marama o Te Reo Māori, or Māori Language Month.
Every weekday this month, our weather map will be in te reo Māori, and a Māori word of the day will feature on the show and here on newsworthy.nz.
We'll connect the words to major news events.
Today’s word is paroro, which means bad weather/storm.
Many of you will be able to use it soon, with heavy rain forecast for much of the North Island.
It looks like a real shitter of a paroro out there tonight.
