Weatherwatch: Rain expected for this weekend (by nzheraldtv)
Despite a large low pressure centre over the Tasman, the nation’s weather will remain settled today.
Mainly sunny skies are expected over the North Island today. Even in the Waikato, where things are starting off a bit foggy today, it will end up being a day of plentiful sunshine and fairly light winds. Gisborne and Hawkes Bay residents are likely to find clouds and a few showers this morning, but those will clear before lunch time.
The South Island will also see plenty of sunshine, although there are likely to be some cloudy periods along the coasts.
But that big Tasman low is keen to unsettle our weather for this weekend.
