We have a tropical cyclone bearing down on NZ at the moment. It won't be major as far as wind
goes, but it will be very heavey rain.
As you can see, the cloud is now covering most of the North Island. Seafox hightailed it home today and is currently waiting for the tide to get high enough to get over the bar . The edge of the cloud is just about right were he is. Hope you got your jacket of Darryl :-)
We are expecting a lot of rain here for the next couple of days as the centre of the low will come down to the east of the North Island and will come directly over us here in the South Island. If it continues to take it's predicted path that is. Don't worry folks, it is not like storms in the US. Most of these cyclones run out of steam once down here in the colder ocean and beome no more than deep depressions.
Hope Craig has his Rocna
I can only imagine Pete Wedderel will go off out sailing in this.
