Gumboots and raincoats will be needed this week, as weather
forecasters are expecting rain and strong winds for much of
Metservice said wet, windy conditions - remnants of Cyclone
June from New Caledonia - would hit the upper North Island
late tomorrow and spread to southern and central parts of New
Zealand on Tuesday.
The strong or gale force winds expected, particularly over
the sea, are due to a low crossing the North Island,
While heavy swells along the east coast from, Cape Reinga to
the Bay of Plenty, were also possible on Tuesday, Met Service
did not believe conditions would reach a level where weather
warnings would be needed for affected areas.
Meanwhile, upper North Island residents looking forward to
their long Anniversary Weekends will be pleased to know the
weather is expected to improve later in the week.
However, those in the South Island are likely to get another
bout of wet weather, with Metservice expecting more rainfall
in southern and western parts after Wednesday.
