GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: Cloudy and dry north of Napier today but elsewhere a few outbreaks of rain. From tomorrow onwards showery about the main ranges but further east mainly fine with west to northwest winds. On Friday showers may become widespread later in Wairarapa.

WELLINGTON: Further rain at times today. Tomorrow and thru to Thursday mostly fine weather but expect showers from time to time about northern places with northwest winds. Showers more widespread Friday with southerlies developing.

NELSON and MARLBOROUGH: Rain clearing from the west today. Tomorrow and up until Thursday showers spreading from the western ranges from time to time but long fine periods also. More widespread showers Friday.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Rain or showers for much of the period with west to northwest winds. Friday sees showers clearing from the south with the flow turning southwest.

CANTERBURY and OTAGO: Further drizzly rain until early tomorrow then skies gradually clearing, although showers may persist about the Canterbury coast for a time. Showery about the main divide and western ranges after that with mostly fine weather elsewhere but during Friday showers may become more widespread as colder southwesterlies work northward.
