Weather Workshop: 5 day forecast for NZ

Issued Thursday, September 09, 1999 at 11.40am.
The long range forecast from Weather Workshop for all of New Zealand to midnight Monday:

Situation: A high in the Tasman Sea is pushing a ridge onto the lower South Island today. A southerly flow covers the remainder of the country. Tomorrow the ridge covers much of the country as a low develops in the South Tasman Sea. High pressure covers the country on Saturday then the high drifts east on Sunday and allows the low to start moving onto the lower South Island and a moist northerly flow develops over the country. On Monday the low lies south of the country and a disturbed northwest flow affects most of New Zealand.

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND, COROMANDEL PENINSULA, BAY of PLENTY/ROTORUA TAUPO, WAIKATO, WAITOMO, TAUMARANUI, TARANAKI, TAIHAPE, WANGANUI and MANAWATU Cloud and fine breaks with a few light showers clearing later today. Mainly fine tomorrow and Saturday. Cloud increasing Sunday in the north and west with late rain to Northland. Showers or rain to most places on Monday with northwest winds.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: Showery today. A few showers about Gisborne tomorrow otherwise becoming fine. Mainly fine on Saturday and Sunday. Cloudy at times on Monday with patchy rain about the ranges and north to northwest winds.

NELSON: Conditions fine and settled until later Saturday then cloud increasing. Patchy rain and northerlies Sunday. Showers and northwesterlies on Monday.

MARLBOROUGH and CANTERBURY: Remaining cloud and the odd coastal shower about Kaikoura clearing otherwise fine but cold with easing southerlies. Tomorrow and Saturday sees a mix of cloud and fine weather, the cloud chiefly coastal. High cloud increasing Sunday but dry in most places, rain later to the main divide. Patchy rain spreading off the alps from time to time on Monday with gusty
northwest winds.
