Weather Workshop: All Districts forecast for NZ

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A shallow low and associated frontal zone lies east
of the country and should affect the Chatham Islands today. A weak
westerly flow covers central and northern areas but in the far south
the flow is expected to strengthen from the northwest ahead of an
active trough over the western Tasman Sea.

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. A few showers in western areas, chiefly
from Waikato to Manawatu this morning. Bay of Plenty to Taupo
should stay mainly dry. Westerly breezes, mostly light.

WELLINGTON: Mainly fine with northerly breezes. Winds freshening
this afternoon.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY and WAIRARAPA: A fine day ahead with light
winds in most places, northwesterlies becoming gusty about Wairarapa.
Just the odd shower close to the main ranges at first
this morning.

NELSON and MARLBOROUGH: Mainly fine, sunny conditions with
northwest breezes.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Cloudy thickening. Showers turning
to drizzly rain from evening. Northerly winds strengthening
during the day south of the glaciers.

CANTERBURY and OTAGO: Cloudy at times with morning drizzle patches
about the coast this morning. Fine inland. Northeasterlies
about the coast. Northwesterlies inland later.

SOUTHLAND: Cloud increasing during the day. Drizzle possible
this evening in the far west and about Stewart Island. North
to northwest winds.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: A wet day with rain for much of the time.
Gusty northerly winds.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: Rain or showers in many western
places. Remaining dry from Bay of Plenty to Canterbury.
Rain spilling into Southland and Otago from the west.
At the Chatham Islands, showery.
