Following a fine weekend in Hawke's Bay the weather forecast has plenty more clear, crisp mornings in store for what looks like a promising start to the week ahead.
Metservice meteorologist April Clark said there would be fine weather this week until Wednesday, when low would bring cloud scattered showers to the region.
Set to be the warmest day of the week, today will reach a high of 19 degrees with increasing cloud in the afternoon and northerly breezes turning southerly in the evening.
"Tuesday will be mainly fine with a high of 15 degrees and Wednesday will have high cloud increasing and northeasterlies", Ms Clark said.
Occasional rain and northeasterlies are forecast to develop on Thursday, marking the start of several wet days before the weather clears at the end of the weekend.
Friday will be showery with a high of 17 degrees and minimal wind, which is set to continue to mid-Saturday where showers will clear to fine weather with light winds.
Ms Clark said the temperature on Tuesday would drop to the lowest, with the forecast to reach four degrees overnight, noting there were no frosts forecast for the week.
MetService reported with low confidence that a heavy rain warning would be required on Thursday for Gisborne, along with Waikato and Bay of Plenty.
"It's looking pretty alright for Hawke's Bay this week. Not a huge amount to report apart from the low but at the moment it won't affect the region too much," Ms Clark said.
