MetService Forecasts a Mostly Fine Weekend

MetService News Release
4 October 2018

The middle weekend of the school holidays is shaping up to be “not too bad” weather-wise, says MetService.

Meteorologist Tui McInnes says the weekend will be partly cloudy with scattered showers for inland places.

“The east coast of the South Island and North Island may have a damp start to the weekend, but things quickly clear up.

“Aotearoa is currently sitting under a belt of high pressure which means any active weather features are quickly dispelled, leaving us with some cloud and a just a few showers, and overall a good weekend.

“While there are a couple of fronts that loiter around the country, they don’t amount to much weather,” he says.
