Saturday’s national forecast

High pressure moves into the country bringing an end to the cold southerly over the South Island and lower North Island – and gradually fading away from the North Island’s east coast.

From Southland to Northland temperatures today are mostly 18 to 22 degrees.

It will be a cold start for a number of places – but tonight looks more mild.

Here are the regional forecasts for SATURDAY…

Northland, Auckland, Waikato & Bay Of Plenty
A mix of sun and cloud. A few showers in the east of Northland, north of Whangarei – clearing this morning.
Highs: 21 to 24

Western North Island (including Central North Island)
Morning cloud or fog patches then a mostly sunny day with light winds.
Highs: 22 to 24

Eastern North Island
Cloudy at times with southerlies fading out around Gisborne – so oddly it may be cooler around Gisborne and warmer further south you go – but we’re only talking a few degrees. A lingering shower in the Gisborne and northern Hawkes Bay area this morning too.
Highs: 17 to 21

A mix of sun and clouds. Breezy southerlies easing and fading out. Sunniest and warmest on the Kapiti Coast.

Marlborough & Nelson
Mostly Sunny.  Light winds, perhaps more SE in Cook Strait
Highs: 18 to 22

West Coast
Cloudy at times, patchy light showers or drizzle moving in – plenty of dry spells along the coast. Patchy rain may develop in the ranges later today too. Light winds.
Highs: 21

A cold start. Light winds, but gentle northerly breezes may form during the day, so warmer than Friday was.
Highs: 18 to 22

Southland & Otago
Warmth returns today. A fairly mild day with light winds. Cold overnight/Sat morning.
Highs: 19 to 22
