Hazy skies caused by the tragic 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!

Is everyone happy about the work to be carried out over the next 6 weeks. One would of thought some consultation, would have been courteous either to our councillors our residents. No mention of traffic calming and exclusion of Heavy goods vehicles, which , incidentally , are travelling at excessive speeds.
Some one needs to take a stand towards AT , and not let them just do what they think.
I await your replies
