Well, you guys got the “heavy falls” spot on for the North this morning. Just been out to check my rain guage here just south of Waipu and have recorded 110 mils since midnight. A long time since I have seen this much in 8 hrs in my experience. This will push any expected droughts away for awhile as I believe more rain expected later this week.

Happy snorkelling everyone.

Cheers Steve
