Metservice has issued a rain warning for parts of the region, although the forecast rainfall totals over the next few days are less than a 1:5 year event. This is unlikely to cause any significant issues on the major rivers. This could, however, cause some localised ponding and roading issues.
Please have a look at what this means for river levels on the infographic below.
You can also keep track of levels at our river level page at www.hbrc.govt.nz/environment/river-levels/.
