The Metservice has released a number of weather warnings for the South Island this Friday & Saturday so motorists are urged to check the conditions before heading on their journey.
The worst affected will be those traveling in Nelson, Marlborough and North Canterbury, including the Kaikoura Coast.
More than 100mm is expected over a 24 hour period on the Kaikoura Coast. Although open 7am – 8.30pm SH1 north and south of Kaikoura is still vulnerable to adverse weather impacts and motorists should consider using the alternate route via Lewis Pass if travelling between Christchurch and Picton for a more reliable journey.
