ANOTHER STORM FORECASTED
HAWKES BAY VERY DRY.
Atmospheric pressure has risen during the night, and west to ;,south-west •winds, strong'to gale, have predominated, especially in the south;; and rain has been reported in many, parts, especially in districts with a westerly aspect. Considerable rain is now falling in the northernmost parts of the Dominion. The rise in barometric pressure, however, is only regarded as temporary, aud another westerly storm area will probably develop and pass in the course of the next two, or three days. The conditions over the , Dominion are in suspense between the. two disturbances. It is possible ;that a-third may be developing in the north, although at the present time there is hardly any indication of isuch a change. Such an extropical disturbance would be most welcome, and would-bring the rainfall from •the northern district to Hawkes Bay, .where it^ is very much wanted. For over two-and a half/month's' there "has been a record dry period in the Hawkes Bay district. The forecast, of the Director of the Meteorological Office is for variable and strong winds, northerlies predominating, and increasing northward of New Plymouth and Castlepoint; westerly, strong to "gale, elsewhere; warm' and humid conditions generally, with increasing cloud and haziness; fog in parts'; rain in the northern, West Coast, and southern districts and elsewhere later.: ~ ' i/
