Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A low and associated frontal zone west of
New Zealand is moving northeast and should lie east
of the North Island by midnight. A ridge of high pressure is
expected to spread onto the South Island during the day.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

spreading to most places for a time today then easing to showers
from the west. A few thunderstorms likely this afternoon from
Hamilton northwards. Northwest winds turning westerly.

WANGANUI and MANAWATU: Cloudy periods with not much wind.

WELLINGTON: Fine apart from cloudy periods. Southeast winds
freshening this afternoon.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: Fine at first. Brief rain
likely about Gisborne and northern Hawkes Bay this afternoon
and evening but further south remaining dry although cloudy.
Mostly light winds.

NELSON, BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Fine apart from areas of
high cloud in most areas. Cloud increasing about the fiords tonight
with patchy rain developing. Mostly light breezes.

MARLBOROUGH, CANTERBURY and OTAGO: Areas of low cloud and fog about
coastal Canterbury and Otago, elsewhere mainly fine and sunny. Not
a great deal of wind.

SOUTHLAND: Fine for much of the day. Cloud increasing from the west
tonight with westerlies developing. The odd light shower in the far
west by then also.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: Mostly cloudy skies with a few morning showers.
Light winds tending southeast later.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: A ridge of high pressure should cover much
of the country with a good deal of fine weather expected. However, a
few showers may linger about the northeastern parts of the North
Island. Also skies rather cloudy in the far south with a few light
showers thru Foveaux Strait and about Stewart Island.
At the Chathams, Showers and cold southerlies.
