HEAVY RAIN AND STRONG WINDS FORECAST FOR MANY PARTS OF NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL NEW ZEALAND
A deep low is forecast to move west of the North Island early
Thursday and lie slow moving west of central New Zealand through to
Friday night before weakening and crossing southern New Zealand late
Saturday. Easterly gales are expected to affect many parts of
northern and central New Zealand during Thursday, with severe gales
for a time about exposed western and central areas from Northland
down to Wellington 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 during Thursday, which have the potential to damage
trees, powerlines and unsecured structures and make driving
hazardous.
A burst of heavy rain is also expected for many parts of the North
Island and northern and eastern parts of the South Island. Further
significant falls are expected about Nelson, Marlborough, Wellington
and Taranaki, especially during Thursday, with 200 to 300mm likely
about the ranges and 70 to 100mm about some low lying areas. Warning
amounts of rain are also expected about the ranges of Coromandel
Peninsula and western Bay of Plenty during Thursday. People in these
areas are advised to watch out for rapidly rising streams and rivers,
surface flooding, slips and hazardous driving conditions.
Many other parts of the North Island, including Auckland, are
expected to see a brief intense period of rain during Thursday and a
watch is in force for these areas.
NOTE: THIS WARNING INCLUDES AN UPDATE FOR THE WELLINGTON REGION ONLY.
ALL OTHER AREAS UNCHANGED AT THIS STAGE.
