Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

Issued by Weather Workshop on Tuesday, September 07, 1999 at 4.00am
Now the All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A northwesterly airstream covers the North Island and upper South Island this morning and is followed by a front and southwest change. A low is moving onto the lower South Island from the Tasman Sea and should lie east of Otago later this morning and this brings a moist southeasterly flow onto the lower South Island.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND, COROMANDEL PENINSULA, WAIKATO, WAITOMO and TAUMARANUI: Mostly cloudy with a few showers and northerly winds at first. Showers turn to rain during the afternoon with the winds tending northwest.

BAY of PLENTY/ROTORUA and TAUPO: Cloud increasing with a few showers developing later then turning to rain well after dark. North to northwest winds.

TARANAKI, TAIHAPE, WANGANUI and MANAWATU: Cloudy with rain at times and gusty northwesterlies.

WELLINGTON: Cloudy with outbreaks of rain and strong to gale force northerlies.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY, WAIRARAPA: High cloud thickening. Patchy rain about the ranges with a few falls spreading further east at times south of the Manawatu Gorge. Northwest winds gusty south of Napier.

NELSON: Cloudy with rain spreading from the west then breaking to showers late in the day. Northwest winds tending southwest by evening.

MARLBOROUGH: High cloud thickening with rain about the Sounds and patchy falls elsewhere. Gusty northwest winds. During the afternoon, rain eases to showers with cooler southerlies developing.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Rain at first with heavy falls likely, easing by mid morning and breaking to showers from the South. Northwest winds turning southwest.

CANTERBURY: Cloudy with rain about the alps spreading further east at times this morning. Northwest winds easing. From early afternoon, drizzly rain and southeasterlies.

OTAGO and SOUTHLAND: Becoming colder with snow lowering to 400 metres about the coastal ranges this morning but only light falls inland. About the coast, cloudy with drizzly rain. Southeast winds.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: Cloud increasing with a few showers developing later. Northwest winds strengthening.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: Further rain over the upper North Island as the front becomes slow moving. A few showers clearing from the South Island east coast otherwise fine as a ridge moves on from the Tasman Sea. At the Chathams, outbreaks of rain.
