It is shaping up to be a beautiful day across the North Island. The South Island may not be quite so lucky.
Here are the details;
For the North Island, expect a mix of sun and clouds for much of the day. Hawkes Bay and Bay of Plenty will be the exceptions where a very sunny day is expected. Temperatures will respond to that extra sunshine with highs in the mid and upper 20s. Highs for the Waikato, Northland and Auckland should be in the lower 20s.
Wellington, Wanganui and Taranaki could see a little bit of rain late in the day tomorrow. Otherwise, look for a mix of clouds and sun with some breezy westerlies. Temps should top out around 20.
For the South Island, Southland and the West Coast will see rain during the early part of the day. Rain should clear from the southern and central sections of the West Coast during the afternoon. Rain could hold off for the northwest coast unitl mid afternoon, but then last into the evening. The rest of the island should be settled. A stray shower can’t be completely ruled out for the eastern half, but chances are pretty small so don’t let that change any outdoor plans you might have. Highs tomorrow should be in the mid teens in the south, to around 20 in the north.

It is definitely the worst day we have had here in Christchurch for a while, dull and cool. What will the weather be like tomorrow?

Agree SW, not a beautiful Auckland day, cloud cover thick and sun not able to be seen through the layers. Cicardas sing though. Don’t think the possibility of precipitation exists over West Auckland, other than the fine specks from a leaking hose 🙂
NZ may be small, but generalisation is bad weather reporting.
