Unsettled Start To The Long Weekend

Unsettled Start To The Long Weekend


MetService weather forecasters are keeping watch on a depression that is deepening over the Tasman Sea and likely to cross the North Island on Saturday.

This depression may bring a period of heavy rain to some northern parts of the North Island on Friday or Saturday, followed by strong winds at times during Saturday or Sunday, commented Peter Kreft of MetService. People in northern New Zealand planning to travel at the start of the long weekend are likely to encounter some difficult driving weather.

During the weekend, South Islanders are likely to experience much less wet and windy weather, though a cold southerly flow is expected to affect the far south briefly on Sunday.

On Labour Day, the weather in most places should settle down to be fine, sunny and not so windy.
