Hokitika Downpour

 

Radar from today at 9:05 pm local time (Hokitika, New Zealand). See the rain shadow?! All of the rain’s coming from the windward side of the mountains over to the leeward side. Light Westerly winds, 10 mph at max.

Friday, June 6th, 2014 Hokitika, South Island, New Zealand

We’ve had rain, rain, and more rain that began two nights ago. We recorded a high rainfall rate at one point of 67 mm/hr (2.65 in/hr) mid-afternoon yesterday, but there may have been even higher rates overnight.  It looks like there may be some dry periods in Hokitika tomorrow morning through mid-afternoon, but we’ll get soaked again Sunday–maybe even more than the last couple days!
