Fine weekend weather for most

It will be cold, but fine for most this weekend.

Fine weather is being forecast for most of New Zealand this weekend.

The MetService is forecasting a ridge of high pressure over the Tasman Sea to spread over the country this weekend.

"As we near the weekend, the south and west of the South Island will see a few showers, and a rain band hovers over Northland, but the rest of the country should have relatively clear skies and light winds, with typical temperatures for the time of year," says MetService meteorologist Alwyn Bakker.

For those attending the All Blacks vs Ireland game at Eden Park on Saturday, Bakker notes at the moment, it’s not clear cut how far south the rain band over Northland extends, so it’s possible Auckland may also be affected.

"Check the forecast before you head out in case you need to pack the raincoats."

The fine weather for most is set to continue into next week, as the high pressure system moves slowly over the North Island.
