Temperatures look set to move into the 20s despite a cool night for many.
WeatherWatch.co.nz belives eastern North Island areas and Marlbourgh and Canterbury could move into the mid 20s.There’ a possibility that the high 20s could be topped before the day is out in these regions.
West Coasters over the Mainland will probably see rainy skies with some heavy downpours possible but at least skies should clear to a sunny day later tomorrow as the front moves through.
Auckland should see some sunshine and possibly a few cloudy areas but any rain or showers shouldn’t appear until later tomorrow.
Wellingtonions are set for a breezy weekend and a dry start to today but a little moisture might visit the Capital later today.
Cantabs are set for a warm one with a nor’ wester picking up later and 25 degrees might be hit if the sun stays over red and black territory.
