After record temperatures for parts of the country over the past few days, Aotearoa is due to get a reprieve.

MetService says it's been a warmer summer period this year, Auckland reached its highest temperature in four years on Sunday, and in Wellington the mercury edged towards 30 degrees.

But it's all about to change with a cool change forecast.
