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.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
