    Cyclone Hola likely to swipe northern NZ

    Tropical Cyclone Hola is weakening but is still expected to bring high winds to northern New Zealand.

    Former Cyclone Hola is weakening but is still predicted to bring rain and gales to northern New Zealand.

    On Sunday, MetService said Hola would bring severe gales and heavy rain to northern and eastern parts of the North Island during Monday and the early hours of Tuesday.

    The heaviest rain is expected in Northland, Great Barrier Island, Coromandel Peninsula and Gisborne, where a heavy rain warning is now in force.

    Southeasterly gales are expected to develop from early Monday morning, before changing southwesterly during Monday afternoon and evening.

    The strongest winds are expected in Northland, Auckland, Coromandel Peninsula, Bay of Plenty and Gisborne, and a strong wind warning is in force for these areas. says Hola will slide down the northeastern side of the upper North Island during Monday, a southwesterly airflow then spreading over the country on Tuesday.

    Most of New Zealand will have quite good weather on Monday apart from the upper North Island where Hola will have an impact.

    "Northeastern parts of Northland look to get the heaviest rain in the morning then East Cape in the afternoon/evening."
