Be prepared. It will be good practice for the years ahead.

    Here is the 3 day rain/wind distribution map:

    Tropical cyclone Debbie arrives around 6am tomorrow morning… travels down the east coast of Northland to reach Auckland, Waikato around noon. If it stays on its present trajectory the centre will move over the top of these regions bringing hugely damaging winds and rain. The heavy rain area seems to disperse as it travels southward but shows not much sign of lessening in intensity.

    Don’t take risks folks and avoid the roads if you can.

    It is so tough on those who have been flooded and will be flooded again. Resilience stretched to breaking I imagine. We have had 54mm of rain in Blenheim since midnight but we are not likely to be seriously affected thanks to great stop-banks and effective District Councils, over decades.
    Climate change again?

    Will also be an almighty test for Auckland.

    Interesting that the Metservice warning didn’t include Dunedin

    As it’s Autumn, don’t forget to check for leaves blocking drains on the street, only takes a few minutes to throw them up on the footpath/verge, but can make a massive difference in a down pour.

    Pouring in Motueka at the moment.

    Stay safe out there

    Weather warnings via metservice.

    Not sure how Cyclone Cook arrives several days after Cyclone Debbie. They are meant to be alphabetical. Has Cook been stationary somewhere else?
