This weekend looks fairly settled but a few showers will continue to pop up here and there across both islands. Most main centres should be mostly dry with breezy winds. Wellington’s brisk northerlies should ease back for the cricket and the bulk of the rain looks set to affect the West Coast of the South Island with sunniest and driest weather likely in the north east of both islands. Temperatures should be average – even if cloudy don’t forget burn times are now very high.
