Holiday Weather – US Sorry

- HOLIDAY WEATHER: The North Island is bracing for a clash of two weather fronts. The result will be heavy rains and winds as far south as Wellington. Tropical cyclone Sose has lost much of it’s punch but still brought foul weather. The storm hit Northland early today and has spread to Auckland. Heavy rain has made rush hour nightmarish. The worst of the rain is expected to strike Auckland later tonight. Floods threaten Northland town Kaiu. Aucklander’s favourite holiday destination Coromandel is expected to cop some heavy rain and could see some flooding. Huge swells in Queensland were caused by Sose, a delight for hardcore surfers, but a huge weave almost caused disaster as it unexpected crashed up the beach almost sweeping people away.
