A NICE COLD FRONT TO START THE WEEKEND
The cold front to start this weekend is a welcome type of cold front, brings some rain but shouldn’t cause too many issues. Rain will be heavy in the west but it won’t be as bad as some heavy rain the West Coast has had lately. Still, streams will rise so if planning any outdoor activities please take precautions. Eastern regions get rain too in manageable quantities. To find out how much rain might be due for your location please visit ruralweather.co.nz and use the search function.
