HEAVY RAIN ABOUT NELSON AND NORTHERN MARLBOROUGH EASING FROM THE WEST

A deep low lying west of the South Island is moving slowly southwards

Another 40 to 70mm of rain is likely in these areas until this time

Heavy rain is also forecast for the ranges of Westland south of Otira
during Saturday, with 100 to 150mm expected.
People in these warning areas should watch for swollen rivers and
streams, surface flooding and hazardous driving conditions.
The rain has eased in Canterbury, North Otago and Dunedin and the
warning for these areas has been lifted.
Note - localised heavy showers and thundery downpours are possible
over the upper half of the North Island through until late Saturday.
