Weather Workshop: All Districts Forecast

All Districts forecast from Weather Workshop:

The Situation: A ridge of high pressure over the north of the North
Island should persist today but weaken slowly from a high to the east.
A front in the Tasman Sea is moving east and is preceded by a strong
moist northwest flow. The front should move over the lower South
Island this morning reaching Westland after dark. A low is likely to
form on the front and is expected to lie east of Otago by early
tomorrow.

And now the forecast to midnight tonight:

NORTHLAND, AUCKLAND, COROMANDEL PENINSULA and BAY of PLENTY/ROTORUA:
Cloud increasing. A few light showers at times. North to northeast
winds.

WAIKATO, WAITOMO, TAUMARANUI, TAUPO, TAIHAPE, TARANAKI, WANGANUI
and MANAWATU: Cloud increasing. A few showers spreading to most
places by the end of the day. North to northwest winds becoming
brisk.

WELLINGTON: A mostly cloudy day ahead with strong gusty northerlies.
A few showers developing also, especially in the north.

GISBORNE, HAWKES BAY, WAIRARAPA: Mainly fine and mild. Not much
wind north of Napier but further south northwesterlies strengthening.

NELSON and MARLBOROUGH: Cloudy about the western ranges of Nelson
with drizzly rain. Elsewhere fine apart from cloudy periods.
Northerly winds.

BULLER, WESTLAND and FIORDLAND: Heavy rain about Fiordland for
much of the day spreading to central Westland by evening. Further
north lighter falls expected. North to northeast winds.

CANTERBURY: Another mild dry day in the east with high cloud.
About the western ranges rain becoming widespread this morning.
Heavy falls likely about the headwaters of the lakes and main
rivers from the Rakaia southward. Breezy northwest winds.

OTAGO and SOUTHLAND: Rain with heavy falls in the western ranges
spreading east today but only small amounts of rain reaching the
east of Otago until tonight. Strong gusty northwesterlies in some
exposed places easing from evening.

CHATHAM ISLANDS: A good deal of sunshine expected but skies
clouding in this afternoon. Strengthening northwest winds.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW: A few showers in the north and west
of the North Island turning to widespread rain from Taranaki
to Wellington. It should remain dry about eastern areas. Morning
frontal rain in most South Island places then colder southerlies
spread north with clearing skies in the west. Showery in the
south and east with brief snow to 5-600 metres. At the Chathams,
showers turning to rain.
