Heavy rain warning for Wellington

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/11/2016

Wellingtonians should pack their jackets and brollies when venturing outside on Thursday and Friday, as the central and lower North Island braces itself for heavy rain.

A severe weather warning has been issued by MetService for the downpour from midday Thursday through to 3pm Friday over which time the capital, Wairarapa, Kapita and Horowhenua can expect 130mm-180mm of rain.

This amount of rain will cause rivers and streams to rise rapidly and slips, so MetService is advising people take care.
