The strong southwesterly airflow which brought rough and cold weather to a lot of the country today will ease after a wet morning for many tomorrow, and kick off a pretty nice start to the long weekend.
The West Coast of the South Island looks like place to be – with showers along the South Islandâ€™s east coast mostly clearing in the morning, and sunny areas developing inland in the morning.
Cloud will then break away nearer the coast later in the day.
Marlborough and Nelson are mainly sunny after early showers clear – then some afternoon north to northeast winds.
Auckland and Northland are fairly cloudy, with gusty west to southwest winds easing later in the day – and the odd brief shower at times here and there.
Morning showers clear for the Waikato, CNI and western North Island then sunny areas develop in the afternoon, south to southwest winds ease later in the day.
