After a hot Saturday for most of New Zealand, MetService predicts cooler weather and showers ahead.

A front is forecast to move onto the lower South Island on Sunday, bringing a brief burst of heavy rain to Fiordland.

MetService says the front is expected to weaken as it moves north early in the coming week, bringing showers and cooler southerly winds.
