The weekend forecast is a mostly positive one but there will be a few things to watch out for.
On Saturday showers will linger along the eastern coastline of the North Island from about southern Wairarapa to Gisborne. Further inland will be sunnier and drier with southerlies fading over the North Island.
In the South Island Saturday looks frosty and sunny for the most part.
Sunday sees high pressure dominate all of New Zealand bringing frosts, calm weather and dry skies.
By Monday rain returns to the West Coast with a norâ€™west flow kicking in across the rest of the South Island and lower North Island.
