Mixed weather for end of summer holiday period

New Zealand's weather will be mixed for the end of summer holidays, as some centres enjoy more fine weather, while others face heavy rain.

The North Island is looking fine with some cloudy periods for the central North Island and Wellington.

Meanwhile things in the South Island, particularly the West Coast, Canterbury, Otago and Southland,  are looking a bit damper, at least for Sunday evening.

A heavy rain warning has been issued for Westland between Otira and Fox Glacier, as well as south of Fox Glacier,  Fiordland, North Otago and Dunedin.

The warnings all expire on Sunday between 2:00pm and 9:00pm.

MetService warned about the cooler weather earlier in the week, saying the top of the South Island will feel it eventually.

"The likes of Blenheim, Kaikōura, the northern part of the South Island will still be getting up to the high 20s, early 30s on Sunday," meteorologist Claire Flynn said.

"But then on Monday will obviously be a bit cooler as that cold front makes its way to them."

If course Auckland won't be seeing much of the bad weather.

"Those fronts generally weaken as they go north, which means that Auckland won't be seeing too much rain as we head into the new week.
