All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A large high east of the country is slow moving and
extends a ridge towards the seas south of the South Island. A low
over the central Tasman Sea is expected to deepen over
the next day or so but remain fairly slow moving.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

WANGANUI and MANAWATU: Cloudy skies. A few showers developing in
most districts but over Northland and Auckland light showers
turning to scattered rain from afternoon. North to northeast
breezes. Winds freshening about exposed areas north of Auckland
during the day.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY, WAIRARAPA: Continuing dry with extensive high
and middle layer cloud. Light winds, mostly northerly.

WELLINGTON: Cloudy periods. A few showers possible later.
Northerly winds.

NELSON: Cloudy with drizzle patches becoming more extensive.
Northeast breezes.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Drizzle about Buller and northern
Westland but further south rain setting in with persistent and
heavier falls developing. Breezy northeasterlies.

MARLBOROUGH, CANTERBURY and OTAGO: Low cloud areas about coastal
Canterbury morning and night with a few drizzle patches. Elsewhere
extensive high and middle layer cloud. A few patches of light rain
likely later. Breezy northeasterlies about the coast, winds mostly
light inland.

SOUTHLAND: Overcast with a few outbreaks of rain. Rain more extensive
from late afternoon. Not much wind.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: Cloudy and fine periods. West to northwest breezes.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: Rain over much of the North Island with

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.

Howard Davis Review: Smelling the Merchandise - The Death of Stalin

Having satirised British democracy with such devastating effect, Armando Iannucci has now turned his lens on the dangers inherent in Soviet authoritarianism. Every gag is girdled with fear and the bleak humour is so pitch black it could only have been pumped from deep underground. More>>

Howard Davis Review: The Creole Stylings of Cécile McLorin Salvant

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
