A cool southwesterly airflow lies over New Zealand tonight, showers for most of the South Island apart from in the northeast. The odd shower may pepper western parts of the North Island overnight also.

Excellent, a sunny night in the Capital! I look forward to seeing that.

Have put clear spells, at the time I was more thinking in reference to the evening though where the sun is still about for a bit. But fair enough….

Just use ‘fine’ (if it’s not banned)? Who cares about a bit of cloud at night. 😉

Actually we don’t use the word ‘fine’ on this website very often! 🙂 Mainly because it covers too many grounds – sunny, cloudy, sunny and cloudy. May be splitting hairs but the reason people love our more detailed forecasts is because we try our best to add an extra layer of, well, detail – pilots, photographers, weather enthusiasts and some of our clients tell us they like that we don’t just canvas a day with “fine” and try to go to the next step to explain cloud cover/thickness where possible. You’d be surprised how many complaints we get from the public about the use of the word “fine” from other forecasters – as many perceive it to mean completely sunny and calm, so they feel disappointed when the evening on the deck is now kinda cloudy and cool.
