Bay of Plenty residents are set to experience a fine weekend as most of the North Island is going to be experiencing pre-settled weather for most of the weekend.
“We do have a front that comes in tomorrow that affects the South Island, but all it really does for the North Island is perhaps increase a bit of wind,” says MetService meteorologist Kyle Lee.
He says for Tauranga for the rest of Friday, we’ve got some southwest winds with a fine day expected and a maximum temperature of 25 degrees.
“Tomorrow, it looks like pretty much the same. Maximum, again around 24 degrees and we do see some fine weather again with sea breezes as the southwesterly dies away.
“Sunday is very much the same again. It’s fine with light winds and we’ve got a maximum of 25 degrees.”
With the temperatures expected to rise over the next few days and into the next working week, Kyle says there are some regions around the country that are starting to get into a high risk for fire over the next little while.
“But it doesn’t look like the Bay of Plenty has quite reached that criteria yet. It does seem like a lot of the North Island is starting to get a little bit to the high side but it looks like Tauranga is okay for now.”
