The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

The weather in Palmer­ston North and around the coun­try this week has been quite a shock to the sys­tem.

Heavy rain has come with a heavy dose of chill and it seems ev­ery­one has pulled their coats out of re­tire­ment again for an­other year.

The end of day­light sav­ings has cer­tainly re­in­forced the few short weeks of sum­mery weather was all we were go­ing to get.

Thank­fully the weather stayed pleas­ant enough for all the big events we’ve had in the first few months of the year.

But here’s hop­ing this weather doesn’t turn into the flood­ing our re­gion is sus­cep­ti­ble to.

It would be dev­as­tat­ing to see an­other sce­nario like the dis­as­trous flood­ing of 2015.

Make sure you keep warm, drive safe and keep an eye on your neigh­bours.
