Rain forecast for the weekendSave

Enjoy the fine weather while it lasts because rain is forecast this weekend.
A mainly fine day was forecast today for most of the country with low cloud in places keeping temperatures up, said MetService meteorologist Tom Adams.
"Enjoy this week, there's a wee system heading our way this weekend," he said.
Low pressure coming in from east coast of Australia would bring rain by the end of the week - "but leading up to that it's not a bad week".
A southerly bringing cloud would make its way up the South Island today, meaning patchy drizzle for a few spots on the east coast including Christchurch and the Wairarapa.
"With this southerly a few temperatures down south will be a bit lower than average. There's a few fronts in this but they're pretty slow-moving and they're pretty weak.
"Places that get stuck under them, like the West Coast, will see drizzly weather on and off.
