Ken Ring predicts not such a fine Labour weekend
Long range forecaster Ken Ring, of http://www.predictweather.com/ says Labour Weekend may not be the fine settled time that other meteorological agencies are suggesting.
Ring says the high pressure system that is currently developing in the Tasman may not sit over NZ as other met-services are confidently predicting, and may not even fully transit NZ until well after the long weekend, potentially preferring to stall over Northland by this time next week.
