Situation: A trough east of the country should continue to drift
away tomorrow as a ridge of high pressure spreads onto the South

trough develops in the south Tasman Sea. This trough looks unlikely
to affect much of the country until later on Sunday with a high
persisting until then.

places but skies rather cloudy about Northland. Cloud increasing
Sunday in the north and west. Bay of Plenty to Taupo stays fine

Thursday cloud increasing about the fiords. Cloudier generally,

spreading further north during Saturday. More persistent and
heavier falls expected Sunday with strengthening northerlies.

clearing later today. Inland becoming fine and frosty. Fine and
