Heavy rain heads for Bay this weekend

Add a comment

Rainfall may reach warning amounts over the Bay of Plenty this weekend, Metservice says.

A broad trough and associated front over the Tasman Sea are forecast to gradually cross the country during Friday and Saturday.

This system is preceded by a strong, moist northeast flow and bands of rain and followed by showery northwesterlies.

Heavy falls are expected about western and northern parts of both Islands and a severe weather warning and watch already cover many of these areas.
