HEAVY RAIN FOR FIORDLAND, WESTLAND, THE OTAGO AND CANTERBURY
HEADWATERS AND MOUNT TARANAKI UNTIL SATURDAY. SEVERE NORTHWEST GALES
FOR SOUTHLAND, OTAGO AND CANTERBURY UNTIL SATURDAY.
A strong, moist northwest flow covers most of the country until a

Periods of heavy rain are expected about the Southern Alps and west
of the South Island until Saturday. Heavy rain should also develop
about Mount Taranaki during Friday. Meanwhile, strong to gale
northwesterlies are affecting many eastern areas of the South Island.
The heaviest sustained rain is likely in Fiordland and Westland from
Friday evening until Saturday afternoon or evening, with significant
spillover into the Otago and Canterbury Headwaters. During this time,
up to 250mm of rain could fall near the Main Divide.
In addition, a trough approaching central New Zealand is expected to
bring heavy rain to Mt Taranaki from Friday evening, with 150mm
likely about the higher slopes.
Wind gusts in exposed areas of Canterbury, Otago and Southland may
reach 130 km/h at times during Friday and Saturday, and in Canterbury
gusts of 150 km/h are possible during Saturday.
In the areas affected by the heavy rain, rivers could rise rapidly
and there is the possibility of slips and surface flooding. Wind
gusts of 130 km/h or stronger have the potential to damage trees and
powerlines and create difficult driving conditions.
