Tomorrow will be the day of the southwesterly. The North Island is likely to receive some rain or showers in the morning then easing in the afternoon and clearing with sunny areas developing in most places, winds will be a bit brisk but nothing harmful. The east coast will start the day with west to northwest winds but southwesterlies will creep north in the afternoon bringing a few showers. A few showers may linger about the Hawkes Bay and Gisborne ranges till evening then clearing at night.
Later in the evening a northwesterly airflow develops over the South Island so high cloud will start to increase from evening tomorrow and rain will develop on the West Coast overnight. Friday is likely to see quite strong northwesterly winds for many places.
