Northland and Auckland in particular may see some fairly brisk breezes during the day, while there’s a risk of strong winds for coastal eastern areas.
A large low pressure front sits just out west of the country in the Tasman Sea, sitting over Northland – and bringing showers there.
Otherwise mostly cloudy skies cling on in Auckland, with showers from evening, while it’s mostly cloudy about the Waikato with showers there overnight.
The Bay Of Plenty is cloudy, with the chance of a light shower or two during the day – before overnight showers move in.
Sunny areas and increasing high cloud prevail in the rest of the North Island.
The South Island is mostly cloudy in the west, with showers from evening then some overnight rain.
Sunny areas and thickening high cloud dominate out east, along with north to northeast winds.
