Autumn is two days away, but for all intents and purposes summer is sticking around.

MetService is predicting a fine and warm entry to autumn with just a few showers here and there.

Forecaster Richard Finnie said most of the lower North Island was forecast to follow a similar weather pattern in the coming 10 days.

In Wellington that meant a fine day today with a high of 22 degrees Celsius, with similar days tomorrow and Friday, the official first day of autumn.

However, the fine northerlies would turn to the south later on Friday, dropping the temperature slightly.

Saturday and Monday would have a few showers, mixed with fine spells.

But come Tuesday, and though to at least Friday next week, a high was moving over the country with highs in Wellington reaching 22 to 23C.
