    In the interests of public safety, you'd expect Metservice and NIWA to have the same forecasts. Difference in forecast could have put people at risk.  NIWA's winds were in a "safe" level of about 70kph gusts, Metservice and Weatherwatch were going for gusts to 120kph. NIWA was wrong . We use Weatherwatch and Metservice.

    Another low that will quickly deepen overnight Sunday and into Monday may bring severe weather to the upper North Island early next week but it's still too early to lock in.   Reliable modelling has been fairly sure of the sub-tropical low developing for over a week but there remains uncertainty if it will grow and reach severe weather criteria. If so, there is a chance for heavy rain warnings and strong wind warnings for the upper half of the North Island on Monday and Tuesday.   Marine conditions will also likely become dangerous around the top half of the island on Monday and Tuesday.   Weatherwatch Will have more news and certainty over the next day or two about severe weather potential (if any). Keep an eye on our rain maps and 10 day local forecasts for more details until our next news update on this low. Subscribe for FREE emergency alerts
