Plenty of rain in February 2022

It’s only 10 February 2022 and we’ve already had more than 150mm rain this month — great for the garden and water tanks! Now the forecast suggests another 200mm or so over 3 days this weekend, as tropical air is drawn down to Aotearoa New Zealand.

Last week’s forecast looked like this:
