Tomorrow will mainly be dominated by an anticyclone however a front will approach the far south of the country and afternoon heating could produce isolated showers about the upper North Island.
So for the upper North Island including Gisborne, expect
mostly sunny weather with light winds although there could be some morning cloud about East Cape. Afternoon sea breezes develop then mid to late afternoon there could be an isolated shower or two, these mainly developing about hills and ranges then clearing in the evening. Temperatures will range from 21 degrees about the Central North Island up to 25 around the Waikato and Auckland.
