It'll pay to get out and about today if you're in the top half of the North Island as sunny skies last for just one more day.

MetService duty forecaster Jasmine Kennedy said it would be fine in northern and eastern parts of the North Island with temperatures sitting in the early 20s.

Auckland was expected to reach 21C, Tauranga 22C and Napier 23C.
