Press Release – MetService
The northern half of the North Island including Auckland is in for a stormy time on Sunday, with squally thunderstorms and northwesterlies reaching gale or severe gale by the end of the day.
On Monday, the wet and windy conditions over northern New Zealand should eventually ease right back. From late Sunday into Monday, strong-ish winds and moderate to heavy rain are expected around central New Zealand, though.
MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for this event.
