morning then spreading slowly south to most other places this
afternoon and evening. North to northeast breezes.

during the day but staying dry until evening. Northerly breezes.

Buller this morning then spreading south reaching Fiordland this
afternoon. Northeast winds freshening.

CANTERBURY, OTAGO and SOUTHLAND: A dry milder day than of late in
most places. Scattered rain is likely after dark about the main
divide and far western ranges. Light breezes in many inland places, northeasterlies developing about the coast and about Southland.
