Second Devonpour Scores Half Century

Posted by on Mar 22, 2011 | Leave a Comment


The second Devonpour in a couple of days dwarfed the first, with 50mm of rain falling last night according to The Speculator’s exhausted rain gauge. This was twice that which fell at Auckland Airport, testament to the easterly nature of the front. 50mm was small beer compared to rainfall on the Coromandel Peninsula however.

In the 24 hours up until 8am this morning, 32mm of rain fell in Whangarei; 46mm in Whangaparaoa; 25mm at Auckland Airport; 143mm in Whitianga; 147mm at The Pinnacles in the Coromandel Ranges; 56mm in Tauranga; 30mm in Rotorua; 49mm in Whakatane, and 67mm in Gisborne.

The heavy rain has now cleared for Northland and Auckland, and should clear for the Coromandel Peninsula by 10am.
