Waitangi Day weather is looking good for most of the country, which means all those Kiwis enjoying a day off can catch some sun.

If you are looking to spend it at the beach, some places will be better-off than others weather-wise.

The top temperatures for the North Island are in Napier with a high of 28degC, and Hastings, Whakatane and Gisborne with a high of 27degC.

Tauranga, Kerikeri and Whangarei could all reach 26degC with cloud.

Auckland is forecast for 24degC with the chance of rain.

It won't be quite as hot in the South Island but Nelson and Motueka both have a high of 24degC without the cloud-cover the north will see.

Blenheim will reach 23degC with cloud.

Invercargill and Gore take out the bottom temperature, both forecast for 14degC with the chance of rain.

Dunedin will only reach a windy 16degC.
