SEVERE WEATHER WARNING.
ISSUED BY MetService AT 11:08am 29-Jul-2014
URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST IN: Fiordland, Westland, Otago,
Canterbury, Southland

HEAVY RAIN AND DAMAGING WINDS FOR THE SOUTH ISLAND ON WEDNESDAY
A disturbed northwest flow covers the country. Within this flow a
front is expected to move up the South Island during Wednesday. Heavy
rain is expected ahead of and with the front over Fiordland and
Westland and gale northwesterlies are likely near the front in
Southland, Otago and Canterbury.
In Fiordland and the Westland ranges, up to 120mm of rain could fall
over a 12 hour period during Wednesday, with significant falls
spreading east into the headwaters of the Otago and Canterbury lakes
and rivers. People in these areas should be aware rivers could rise
rapidly and there is the possibility of slips and surface flooding.
In exposed places of Southland, Otago and Canterbury wind gusts may
reach 130 km/h during Wednesday. Near the Canterbury Foothills, gusts
of 140 km/h are possible. These wind gusts have the potential to
damage trees and powerlines and create difficult driving conditions.
Although both the wind and rain should ease late Wednesday or early
Thursday, further warnings for heavy rain and/or damaging winds are
likely later in the week.
