Clocks fell back an hour overnight as Daylight Saving ended, so today is 25 hours long.
High pressure is centred just north of New Zealand and will bring a settled Sunday to the upper North Island. However windy west to north west winds kick in today across many other parts of NZ, especially around Wellington and the Southern Alps.
This set up means northern and eastern areas of both islands will be warmest today with highs in the mid 20s.
Rain pushes into Fiordland and later rain or showers move into Southland and South Westland, then showers by tonight go into the rest of the West Coast.
