Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Once again, the year has rolled by quickly and we have arrived at the Christmas Season 2019. Let us all pause to be grateful for the gifts of kindness we have received from family and friends, neighbours and strangers. We don't live a fulfilling Life in isolation, and we have people around to remind us that we too are kind, giving and caring of those whom we touch in every aspect of Life.
So, from the entire Team at Caring 4 Smiles Dental Group, Epsom, we thank every one who has walked in to become a close friend at our clinic and wish everyone of you and your family members a Blessed Christmas. Prayers that your New Year 2020 is filled with great Joy and Happiness.
