Manawatu residents should get their washing sorted this weekend, as the weather is looking to pack in next week.
MetService forecaster Stephen Glassey said a high over the entire country would see the sun shine in Manawatu all weekend.
''There could be just a little morning cloud on Saturday, while Sunday will be fine apart from evening cloud.''
Temperatures in Palmerston North would peak at 25C on Sunday, he said.
However, next week was not looking flash.
Mr Glassey said a few showers would flare up on Monday before scattered rainfall on Tuesday.
