Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A weak ridge should move off the North Island today as
a northerly flow strengthens over the South Island ahead of a trough
in the central Tasman Sea. An associated front is expected to advance
onto South Island areas later today. Near the Chatham Island a slow
moving low is likely to decay.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND COROMANDEL PENINSULA, BAY of PLENTY/ROTORUA
WAIKATO, WAITOMO, TAUMARANUI, TAIHAPE, TAUPO, TARANAKI,
WANGANUI and MANAWATU: A mix of fine and cloudy periods in
most places today. The odd shower in western places at first
this morning. Northerlies developing this afternoon. Drizzle
developing after dark from Taranaki south this evening.

WELLINGTON: Becoming cloudy with freshening northerlies. Drizzle
patches likely from evening.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: A fine start for most. High
