If you’ve enjoyed Auckland’s week of warm weather – including Wednesday’s national high of 26 degrees Celsius – then this weekend might be a little disappointing.
MetService expects Saturday morning to bring low cloud and fog to parts of Tāmaki Makaurau, which will dissipate as the day progresses.
The afternoon and evening can bring a few showers, with light winds being felt throughout the day.
The average temperature will likely be around 23 degrees between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., with a high of 24 and a low of 16, not quite reaching Wednesday’s high.

Wind speed will peak at 15 km/h in the early afternoon, while gusts will reach 19 km/h.
As for Sunday, it’s expected to be mostly sunny, with partial cloud cover and an average temperature of 19.7 degrees.
Looking ahead to next week, the forecast looks bleak for those looking for a repeat of sunshine and clear skies. Although Monday looks good, from Tuesday to Thursday showers of varying levels are expected to occur.
Wednesday looks set to be the worst weather of the week, with 30% precipitation expected to measure over 10mm.
Auckland’s tides on Saturday will be high at 8.23am and again at 8.49pm, so swimmers can enjoy an evening swim before summer time ends at 2am on Sunday.
