Police warn motorists

Police warn motorists to take extreme care as the cold snap creates icy patches along the region’s roads this week, particularly on State Highway 29 and 36.

More cold nights and frosty mornings are expected this week, but the MetService says the Western Bay of Plenty will have relief from the cold weather on Friday, June 26.
MetService forecaster Derek Holland says the Western Bay will get cloud cover on Friday and warmer northerly air, with possible rain on Saturday.
“There’s going to be two or three more decent frosts this week,” says Derek.
He says the Western Bay’s current cold snap is caused by cloudless nights and a cold southerly flow from the South Island heading up the country.
Senior sergeant Ian Campion says there are still icy conditions on State Highway 36 and 29 but no accidents were reported overnight.
He says there are also patches of frost on Oropi Road in the Greerton area.
