Batten down the hatches - there's a storm blowing in

After a couple of days of gorgeous weather, we can now expect it to turn to very soggy custard.

MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for heavy rain for the urban areas of the Wellington region for tomorrow, with 40-50mm expected in a 3-6 hour period some time between 8am and 8pm Saturday morning. That kind of rainfall may cause similar surface flooding and slips to the last lot that cut off all access north of Porirua at the end of July.

Also expecting strong northwest winds tonight - up to gale force, possible even severe gales.

Might just be a good day to stay home.
