I have a hike planned in Raglan this coming Saturday – do you have any early indication of what the elements may throw at us rain and windwise?
thanks and regards

Hey there – keep an eye on our Raglan forecast (for % of rain each day) and use our rain/wind maps as well to help understand the front(s) that is/are coming in this weekend. Saturday looks like it could be wet while Sunday may be windier (and wet later also). Either way a bit of a messy forecast this weekend but will be dry weather too. Our Wednesday weather video will have more details too for also.
Cheers and good luck!
