Take that umbrella or wear a raincoat for the Raro 7s this weekend, says weather man Arona Ngari.

The Meteorological Service director explained that strong winds and rains experienced last night were caused by an anti-cyclone or high pressure system to the south of the Rarotonga, driving south to southeast winds onto island – thus the nippy weather at the moment.

But rain passing through New Zealand was expected to affect the Southern Cook Islands and Rarotonga in the next two days and may continue into early next week.

“So for the weekend, take that umbrella or raincoat with you,” he said. “Those gumboots will come handy too. Whatever the weather, enjoy your day.”
