    Default NZ prepare!

    Stormy weather on the way
    By PAUL GORMAN - The Press | Wednesday, 18 February 2009

    Tropical Cyclone Innis is heading for New Zealand, with weather forecasters warning of heavy rain and strong winds in many places on Friday and over the weekend.

    The low pressure system was upgraded to a category one tropical cyclone last night and is now off the Queensland coast heading south.

    The tropical cyclone is expected to decay into a deep depression as it nears central New Zealand on Friday but MetService is warning it will still be intense enough to bring heavy rain and wind for most.

    Heavy rain is expected across the western and central North Island, as well as the Tararua range, ranges of Nelson, Buller, Westland and northern Fiordland on Friday.

    Weather warnings are possible in the hill country from Taranaki to the central North Island and eastern Bay of Plenty, and as far north as the Kaimai Range and the coastal hills of southern Waikato, also about the ranges of northwest Nelson on Friday, Metservice says.

    Warnings may also be necessary for the Tararua Range, the Marlborough Sounds, the Richmond Range and the ranges from Buller to northern Fiordland.

    Metservice advises people to keep up to date with weather forecasts and note that streams and rivers are likely to rise quickly.

    Oh Crikey MB ... lets hope it decays well before it hits out shores.

    Even more worrying, is that I hope the leak in our roof is really fixed!
