Rain means longer lie-in for moth­ers

Weekend Herald - - News -

Mums have a good rea­son to stay in bed to­mor­row — Mother’s Day is go­ing to be dull and rainy.

The worst of a low caus­ing havoc in Aus­tralia will mostly spare New Zealand but we’re still in for plenty of rain.

Met Ser­vice me­te­o­rol­o­gist April Clark said the story “wouldn’t be chang­ing much” over the week­end. Tem­per­a­tures would be mild in the north — Auck­land can ex­pect 20C — but cooler in the south. Christchurch drops to 9C to­day and 11C to­mor­row.

Heavy rain is fore­cast across the up­per North Is­land to­day, and in western ar­eas to­mor­row, es­pe­cially in the Bay of Plenty and Gis­borne ranges.

As for to­mor­row — Mother’s Day — the fore­cast is for “a dull day for a lot of peo­ple in the North Is­land and rainy in the up­per north, but not so bad for the South Is­land”.

On Mon­day, the rain looks like clear­ing over the North Is­land.
