Basically, all eastern parts of the country are looking sunny and relatively warm.
The west of the South Island has cloudy areas and the odd light shower (mainly Hokitika southwards), while most of the North Island in the west is fairly sunny.
The exception to this is perhaps a few clouds at times from Taranaki southwards.
Winds will continue to blow strongly from the northwest and west in exposed inland areas of the South Island, as well as Cook Strait – something to look out for again.
