A weak front moves over the North Island on Friday, meanwhile another front lines up the lower South Island. A period of more settled weather for regions between the fronts.
Mostly sunny for the upper North Island on Friday, later in the evening some cloud and the risk of a shower moves in from Northland down through to the Waikato. A few morning showers from Taranaki through to Kapiti then sunny areas break through from afternoon. Sunny along the east coast although a shower or two is likely in the afternoon for Wairarapa.
Any early showers clear the upper South Island then conditions brighten up, Marlborough may see cloud hang around for the majority of the day however. Some rain moves through Southland in the afternoon then Otago in the evening. Rain moves into Fiordland during the afternoon then pushes northwards reaching North Westland later in the evening.
