A northwesterly airflow develops on Friday, still fairly settled although showers start to affect western regions.
Mostly sunny for the eastern North Island on Friday, cloud gradually increases in the west however and a few showers move in from afternoon. The West Coast of the South Island has showers for much of the day, especially South Westland. Drier out east with high cloud, a low risk of a spot of rain at times spreading from the west.
