The Bay Of Plenty is mainly sunny, though winds stay fairly breezy here too.
The East Coast is mostly sunny, while light winds tend southerly in the afternoon along with some cloud.
Wellington is mostly sunny also, while northerly winds tend to the south by midday.

In the South Island, southwesterly winds prevail on the West Coast also, with areas of cloud and the odd shower possible – mainly in the morning.
The east coast is mainly sunny, as Canterbury and Marlborough see light winds at first, then tending southerly in the afternoon.
