Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A trough northeast of the Chatham Islands is slowly
drifting east and filling. Pressures are rising over the Tasman Sea
as a large anticyclone moves closer to the country. The high should
spread a ridge onto the southern South Island today as a southerly
flow weakens over North Island areas.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

WANGANUI and MANAWATU: A mainly fine sunny day ahead. Cloudy
periods at first this morning about Wanganui and Manawatu.
Southerly winds should die out in most places as the day goes on.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: Cloudy conditions continuing
with light showers persisting, especially near the coast. Fine
periods should increase during the day from Napier south. Cold
again in the wind with southerlies easing.

WELLINGTON: Fine periods on the increase but still a few light
persistent showers likely. The chill remains today but with
southerlies slowly easing.

NELSON, BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Fine bright and sunny
with light winds. Frosty again tonight.

MARLBOROUGH: Showers should slowly clear from the Kaikoura Coast
but skies are likely to remain quite cloudy. About inland areas
mostly fine and frosty. Southerly breezes.

CANTERBURY: Mostly fine and frosty inland today. In coastal
places drizzly showers clearing this afternoon with fine periods
increasing. South to southwest winds, breezy about the coast and
Banks Peninsula, inland winds mainly light.

OTAGO and SOUTHLAND: A few light showers about the south coast
and Stewart Island clearing, elsewhere mainly fine and
frosty. Southwest winds dying out.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: A showery day with southeast winds freshening.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: Fine in most places. Remaining showers
clearing from the east of the North Island. At the Chathams,
showers clearing and fine periods becoming more frequent.
