Let’s Wave Goodbye to the Sun for the Next 7 Days

Are you like us, staring outside the office (or home for those WFH), watching the rain fall with TGIF stuck in our throats, refusing to come out?

Unfortunately, according to MetService, we expect this weather for several days, cutting right into our long weekend plans.

For Aucklanders, there is a strong wind and heavy rain warning, with ferries cancelled, power outages and thunderstorms happening as you read this.

So what do you need to know?

  • All Pine Harbour ferry services have now been cancelled until further notice due to weather conditions. The 7am, 8am & 9am Pine Harbour to Auckland services will be replaced by Bus.
  • Areas of North Auckland around Te Arai are without power as of 6.20am on Friday. Some areas near the Auckland border have had power cuts since at least 3am on Friday.
  • Waka Kotahi NZTA advises drivers heading over the Auckland Harbour Bridge to watch out for strong gusts and wind. Commuters should drive to the conditions, look out for full bridge closures, and stay within their lane while travelling across the bridge. High-sided vehicles and motorcyclists should avoid the Harbour Bridge and use the Western Ring Route on State Highways 16 and 18.

Stay safe, everyone!
