Smoke from the bushfires in New South Wales is expected to drift over New Zealand and it could be visible in Taranaki from noon tomorrow for one or two days.
Niwa atmosphere scientist Tony Bromley said "on occasions" the wind pattern would bring the smoke east to New Zealand.
Evidence of the smoke is most likely to be visible from Auckland north from tonight and remain visible until tomorrow night.
The smoke may make sunsets and sunrises more intense, depending on cloud cover, but even during the day the smoke plume should be clearly visible.
