If you want sunshine this weekend, head for the Wairarapa.
Clouds that cover Wellington and Kapiti this weekend were not expected to reach over the Rimutaka ranges, leaving Wairarapa bathing in sunlight, MetService forecaster Dan Corbett said.
''Everyone who goes east, it will be like 'wow, I have landed in another country.''
Parts of Wairarapa this weekend will reach 23degC tomorrow then 21C on Sunday.
It's not all bad in Wellington though.
Despite some cloud, a few patches of sunlight are expected to peek through later tomorrow, when a 17C high is forecast. Sunday is similar though the high is expected to hit 15C.
Wairarapa's sunny weather is all good news for those heading over the hill for the 11th annual Rally Wairarapa, which is being held in stages between Eketahuna and Masterton tomorrow.
Course clerk Dave Davies said crowds of about 1000 people were expected at the free event.
There should be a good show of support for Masterton driver Richard Mason who had now won more national championship rallies than any other driver, setting the record at the recent Vantage Aluminium Possum Bourne Memorial Rally.
He was this weekend chasing a record-beating fifth national title, and a win at Rally Wairarapa would likely secure that honour.
