Weekend weather: concertgoers take an umbrella


If you’re attending the Gibbston Summer Concert this weekend, best take an umbrella.

Mountain Scene weather guru Chris Stephenson says the weekend’s weather will be a mixed bag. 

“Skies are expected to be mostly cloudy throughout the weekend with the chance of showers, especially in the west. 

“For those going to the Highlands event in Cromwell, as you’re further east the risk of showers are even less.

“Temperatures are expected to be tempered by the cloud but it will still feel quite humid – highs around the low to mid-twenties so not uncomfortably hot. 

“Winds are expected to be light, so no problems there.

“Pack an umbrella just to be on the safe side.”

Stephenson had 23 years in Metservice, including a stint as a non-degreed forecaster writing forecasts for New Zealand media.
