All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

Tasman Sea is drifting southeast. An associated frontal band over
the upper North Island is moving slowly south and a weakening high
pressure ridge covers southern New Zealand.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND and COROMANDEL PENINSULA: Rain this morning with
a few brief heavy falls. During the afternoon skies breaking from the
north with rain easing to showers and increasing fine periods. Gale northeasterlies in exposed places easing this afternoon and turning
more northerly.

a few heavy falls in the west. After dark rain gradually easing to
showers and fine periods. Gusty northeast winds for much of the day.

about Waikato this morning and gradually spreading south. North to
northeast winds becoming brisk.

possible about the main northern ranges. Northeast winds becoming
gusty.

TAIHAPE, WANGANUI, MANAWATU, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: High

Hawkes Bay and Taihape scattered rain likely by evening and a
few patchy falls further south tonight. North to northeast
winds but southeasterlies about Manawatu.

rain likely after dark. Southeasterlies freshening this afternoon.
