Soggy Friday night

Posting this from a terminal at Te Papa, as I'm attending the last day of workshops associated with the 4th Australasian Hazards Management Conference (review of that coming soon).

MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for heavy rain in the Tararuas. The wind direction means that some of that will end up dumping into the catchment that causes Greys Rd to flood, so please take care when driving through that area tonight, and report any surface flooding or slips that you come across - ph 237-5089 24hr.

There's also a Severe Weather Watch for possible severe gales today, so hold on to your hats.
