The South Island is the place to be this weekend, according to weather forecasters.
MetService meteorologist John Law said unsettled weather was expected in parts of the North Island but it would be mostly warm and dry in the south.
"Saturday won't be too bad for the majority of the North Island but a front will come later on which will push cloud up the far north," he said.
"On Sunday the low pressure will move across the island bringing wet weather for Northland, Auckland and the Coromandel."
The outlook wasn't as bad further south, he said.
"Both days look like they'll be dry in the South Island, particularly on the West Coast.
"On Sunday, there'll be cloud above the ranges of the northern parts of the island, which could bring a few isolated showers inland but on the whole, the island will be fine and dry."
The area of low pressure would disappear on Monday but with another one waiting in the wings, wet weather could continue in the far north of the country next week, he said.
