More wild winds for Waikato
More wild windy weather could be on its way for the Waikato on Thursday.
As the Waikato looks forward to a week of unsettled weather, the MetService is warning that Thursday may bring blustery winds and showers.
MetService forecaster, John Law said that while Tuesday and Wednesday will bring light showers to coastal towns with fine spells inland we cannot expect the mild weather to stick around.
''Thursday is definitely the day to keep an eye on,'' he said.
''It will be a wet start to the day, with winds picking up during the day.''
He said that it was too early to pick whether the southwesterly winds will be strong enough to cause the damage that was caused over the weekend, but they would be keeping an eye out and updating information as soon as they could.
Meanwhile Hamilton Golf Course manager Malcolm Johnson said they spent yesterday cleaning up after the wild weekend weather.
Mr Johnson said a number of trees were brought down in the winds, which luckily did not disrupt any keen golfers games.
''Fortunately they fell out of the way of play,'' he said.
The trees are being cut up and will be removed by the end of the week.
Looking forward to Labour weekend, Mr Law said it was tough to say whether the weather would perk up, but it does still look unsettled and the direction of winds would be the major factor.
