Heavy rain expected in New Zealand's north

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 31/05/2017

The British and Irish Lions will get an early taste of New Zealand's winter climate as heavy rain, slips and flooding are forecast for Auckland, the Coromandel Peninsula and Northland on Friday.

A low pressure system over the Tasman is expected to move east and hit the north of the North Island on Friday morning.

In the 15 hours from 8am the day, up to 90mm of rain could fall in Northland and north of Orewa in Auckland.

People living in these areas are advised to look out for rapidly rising streams and rivers, and slips and surface flooding is possible.
