SEVERE WEATHER WARNING.
ISSUED BY MetService AT 8:03pm 14-Feb-2016
URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST IN: Fiordland

PROLONGED HEAVY RAIN FOR FIORDLAND.
A frontal system over the Tasman Sea is forecast to lie slow moving

surface flooding, cause rivers and streams to rise rapidly, and make
tramping and driving conditions hazardous.

date with the latest Watch and Warning as it is likely to be included
