A mostly fine forecast for Fieldays 2017

It’ll be a wet and breezy start to Fieldays tomorrow but it’s better and brighter after that.

NIWA, official weather forecaster for Fieldays, says visitors to the event should expect a few showers tomorrowmorning and wind gusts of up to 60km/h.

Skies are expected to clear during the afternoon and winds will subside, giving way to a clear and cold night.

On Thursday, a possible frosty start will be followed by sunny skies and a bit of cloud. There is a slight risk of a late-day shower.

Friday is likely to feature a few more clouds to start with, followed by the odd sprinkle. Skies clear around midday.

The Fieldays finale on Saturday may have some fog to start, but otherwise is expected to be dry with light winds.

Sunday’s tear-down should have mostly dry weather (can’t rule out the odd shower at this point) while active weather swirls over the Tasman Sea.
