Nelson is the place to be this Easter with fine weather for the long weekend.
MetService forecasts mainly fine weather for the region with some southeasterlies dying out by Sunday.
That's good news for holidaymakers and events such as the Mapua Easter Fair on Sunday.
For those travelling around the region, there are three areas of roadworks – on Motueka's High St the road has been dug up to replace the sewer, cliff face work continues on Nelson's Rocks Rd and in Golden Bay, Bird's Hill north of Takaka is still down to one lane.
Roadworks on Wakatu Drive and Ruby Bay bypass have been cleared for the weekend, NZ Transport Agency central operations manager Mark Owen said.
