The forecast this weekend across New Zealand looks mainly dry with temperatures from the late teens to the mid twenties for many.
Across the country the skies should be mostly dry – although a few isolated showers are possible. Rainmakers are approaching New Zealand from the north east and south west – but both will weaken as they move in next week.
For the weekend we’ll see easterlies developing in the north and for some eastern areas of the South Island. Meanwhile ahead of next weeks front in the Tasman winds will pick up from the north or north west around the lower South Island on Sunday.
Regions like Waikato and Bay of Plenty may be especially sunny, although the approaching sub-tropical rain may bring in some late weekend cloud to northern or north eastern New Zealand.
