A cold front moves over the North Island on Friday however it will weaken as it moves northwards. A west to southwesterly airflow lies over the South Island.
A few showers for much of the western North Island on Friday, a few showers develop about Wairarapa in the morning then a few may reach Hawkes Bay in the afternoon otherwise staying mainly dry. Gisborne has a mainly sunny and dry day.
Cloudy periods for the West Coast of the South Island, risk of a shower at times especially for Fiordland. A fairly dry day in the east but there could be a clearing shower about Marlborough in the morning. Coastal Southland sees the odd shower at times in a westerly airflow.
