It's finally time to drag out the beach cricket and bikinis as Metservice indicates a week of sunshine for the south.

Metservice duty forcaster Larissa Marimtchemko said the whole country could expect about a week of warm temperatures as a slow-moving high makes it way across New Zealand.

Although Southland had a chilly reputation, a spell of good weather in the region was not unusual for this time of year, she said.

Metservice expects Invercargill to reach 27degC tomorrow  with highs in the mid-20s forecast for another week.

Gore is predicted to sit between 25degC and 27degC until next Saturday, and Lumsden residents can expect highs of 28degC on Monday and Tuesday.

Queenstown is set to sizzle just shy of the 30degC most of the week, before dropping into the mid-20s next weekend.

The sunshine will leave the city on February 2 as showers creep in, but the mercury will stay put above 20degC.
