In previous years, Corbett has just spoken New Zealand's indigenous language at the start of the weather. 

But on Wednesday he weaved te reo throughout his bulletin, later telling 1News he had always wanted to do it, but it remains something he will always be working on.

Now the weather across most of Aotearoa is going to be a bit lousy on Thursday so it's not too hard to follow some of the phrases Corbett used.

Te huarere mō āpōpō - tomorrow's weather

He ua - rain

He whaitiri- lightning/thunder

He haukaha - strong winds

I te ata - in the morning

I te ahiahi - in the afternoon

And what was that Simon said as Dan handed back to him?

Koia kei a koe! Well done!
