Overall, forecaster Chris Joseph said it would not be a stretch to say the region was in for some great weather this long weekend, with only a small chance of celebrations being interrupted..

"I think it would be fair to say that,” he said.

"But just a caution there could be a light shower.”

"It's going to be pretty good conditions.”

He said light winds could be expected in the area, with 15-20 knot winds on the coast diminishing to 10-15 knots later in the weekend.

The holiday should also be a good time for surfers to have some fun, with a swell of between 1m-1.5m expected on the coast.

Mr Joseph did advise caution for people on the water in smaller craft given the conditions, though.
