Everything's looking great for tonight but the latest forecast for New Plymouth's Womad weekend is predicting wind gusts of up to 110kmh tomorrow. 

Heavy rain from the leading edge of Cyclone Lusi is expected in Northland from this evening, spreading southward over the next 24 hours to the Coromandel Peninsula, Bay of Plenty, the Gisborne ranges, the ranges west of Motueka, and Marlborough including the Kaikoura Ranges.

New Plymouth will likely miss on the heavy rain but won't be able to avoid the blow, with wind forecast to peak at an average of 46kph at noon tomorrow.

The Metservice forecast is also predicting easterly winds rising to gale gusts of up to 110kmh.

At this stage Sunday's forecast is for rain easing to showers with northerly winds.
