Sunday's National Forecast - Here comes windier weather.

Most places will be warmer than average today by a few to several degrees. Generally speaking, most places have a warm, dry, Sunday on the way.

NORTH ISLAND:
North to north east winds developing with a few light shower possible in northern facing regions, but generally it looks like a mainly dry day. Still a bit cloudy for some areas but much warmer than average in the south and east.
Highs: 15 to 22

Blustery nor'westers developing. Dry for most places but patchy rain develops on the West Coast today and becomes heavy tonight.
