Weather strikes early

CD Weather strikes early

"Widespread superficial flooding and numerous slips are reported in West Auckland as heavy rain accompanied by thunder has arrived twelve hours earlier than forecasters predicted.

Police say they've received numerous calls from Waitakere residents, and they say driving conditions are hazardous. Weather commentator Philip Duncan says a front is bringing torrential rain from Auckland northwards this afternoon, but it was not expected until overnight or tomorrow.

But the rainbands have moved more quickly than forecasters predicted. The rain is affecting Auckland, Northland, and the Coromandel Peninsular, with up to 120 millimetres falling very rapidly in some parts"
