HEAVY RAIN AND STRONG WINDS FORECAST FOR MANY PARTS OF CENTRAL NEW
ZEALAND
A deep low lying west of the upper North Island is forecast to move
south today to lie slow moving west of central New Zealand by Friday.
Easterly gales are expected over many parts of central New Zealand
today, gradually easing from the north. Severe gales are likely for a
time about exposed western and inland parts of the central and lower
North Island and also about northern and western parts of the South
Island. Gusts of 110 to 140 km/h are likely in exposed parts of these
areas today (Thursday), which have the potential to damage trees,
powerlines and unsecure structures, and make driving hazardous.
A burst of heavy rain is also expected for many parts of the central
and lower North Island and northern and eastern parts of the South
Island. Heavy rain is easing about the Coromandel and Taranaki, but
significant amounts of rain are still expected about the Bay of
Plenty, Gisborne, the eastern hills of Wellington, the Tararua Range,
and the Nelson and Marlborough ranges today. Warning amounts of rain
are also expected over Canterbury and eastern Otago later today and
Friday, and possibly about the ranges of Nelson also.
People in these areas are advised to watch out for rapidly rising
streams and rivers, surface flooding, slips and hazardous driving
conditions.
The heavy rain and severe northeast gales have eased about Northland
and Auckland and these warnings have been lifted.Additionally, severe
northeast gales have eased about Coromandel and eastern Waikato.
