The Canterbury region has just been flooded with a “one-in-100-year event” – yet the NIWA Outlook was for “below average rain”.

Should be mass sackings over the ditch. I see MetService has a message -[Cumulative Rainfall Map Unavailable – Unfortunately the cumulative rainfall maps have not captured the recent heavy rainfall accurately and have been disabled while we investigate.

The maps will be restored once resolved.]

You could not make this up. MetService has been useless for years. NZ would be better served if the Gov just paid BoM to “tack on Aotearoa”.

The BoM www site is light years more useful for understanding weather.
