Fire and Ice on Wednesday

News Release from MetService - Issued at 12:47pm 03-Nov-2003

Fire and Ice on Wednesday

MetService meteorologists are forecasting that there could be some frosts in Bay of Plenty, Taupo, Hawke's Bay and Marlborough on Wednesday morning. This should be followed by generally fine weather for the annual Guy Fawkes fireworks in the evening. However there may be some gusty winds about and south of Cook Strait.

MetService Weather Ambassador Bob McDavitt says that the cold southwest winds arriving over the country early in the week should die away on Tuesday night in readiness for the fireworks. "In some places the combination of cold calm air and clear skies may result in an icy start to Wednesday. Anyone wishing to brace for possible frosts may check the MetService frost forecast on the Farm Info phone line."

McDavitt says that fine weather for Guy Fawkes is expected to cover most of the North Island. "Canterbury and Marlborough are also likely to have clear skies. Gusty northwest winds are forecast over much of the South Island and around Wellington and Wairarapa, with a change to gusty westerlies spreading across Southland and Otago."
