For the North Island it’s looking like a mix of sunny areas and cloud for pretty much everyone.
Cloud builds for many about the upper North Island in the afternoon, with isolated showers moving in, while showers may become heavy, and thunderstorms develop around Northland, southern Waikato, northern Taranaki and across the Central North Island.
These then ease later in the evening.
For the South Island it’s shaping up to be a mainly cloudy day in the east, with drizzle patches at times.
Areas of rain develop in Canterbury, as well as perhaps southern parts of Marlborough.
In the west, cloudy conditions prevail with the odd shower, while some rain from Hokitika northwards eases in the evening.
