Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A strong disturbed southwest flow covers the country.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND, COROMANDEL PENINSULA, TAUPO, WAIKATO, WAITOMO,
TAUMARANUI, TARANAKI and TAIHAPE: A mix of fine and cloudy periods
with showers at times. Southwesterlies, strong and gusty in exposed
places.

BAY of PLENTY/ROTORUA: Mainly fine with southwest winds. A few light
showers possible in the west.

WANGANUI and MANAWATU: Fine apart from cloudy periods. A few showers
may affect northern parts of Wanganui at times. West to southwest
winds.

WELLINGTON: A fine day ahead with north to northwest breezes.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: Brief showers may affect coastal
Wairarapa at times, otherwise generally fine conditions. West to
southwest winds.

NELSON: Fine with brisk southwesterlies.

MARLBOROUGH and CANTERBURY: Fine cold weather with light
winds inland. Southwesterlies in coastal places. Brief showers
may affect areas from Banks Peninsula southward late tonight.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: A mix of cloudy and fine periods
with showers at times. Southwest breezes.

OTAGO and SOUTHLAND: Cloudy periods with showers about the south
coast and Stewart Island spreading further north tonight.
West to southwest winds, strong and gusty about the coast but
lighter and more variable inland.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: Another cold day ahead with strong gusty
southwesterlies. Expect showers and fine periods.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: The southwest flow should gradually
ease as an anticyclone moves slowly over the northern Tasman Sea.
At the same time a weak cold front is likely to spread northeast
over the South Island. The North Island sees a few showers from
Taranaki northwards, otherwise fine. Over the South Island showers
clearing from eastern areas but persisting in the south and west.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
