HEAVY RAIN AND WINDS ARE EASING. SEVERE GALES RETURN TO CANTERBURY

A weakening front has crossed most of the South Island and the heavy

are likely to fall just short of warning criteria and a Watch is in
place for this rain.
Severe gales have eased over Fiordland, Southland and Otago and
should ease over Canterbury before midnight tonight. However,
northwest winds should increase again over Canterbury and Otago
during Thursday and gusts of 130km/h are possible in exposed places.
These wind gusts have the potential to damage trees and powerlines
and create difficult driving conditions.
