Better weather picture for Tauranga

Tauranga has finally made it onto the TV weather map.

TVNZ has confirmed that Tauranga will be “boldly” featured in the nightly weather reports, in recognition of its status as a growing city. It will get its own ‘hover,’ which is the aerial graphic of the main centres.

TVNZ news editor Paul Patrick says Tauranga has overtaken Dunedin as the country’s 5th largest city and this has provided a good chance to introduce the Bay of Plenty city into the nightly presentation.

He adds that the folk of Dunedin should have no fear as their graphics will remain.

The main cities should have it,ie with Tauranga,perhaps Napier/Hastings,Palmerston North and Invercargill,they have sizable populations plus all have different weather from the main centres theyre close too.
