    Auckland desperately needs rain

    Auckland desperately needs rain


    MetService's long range forecast is for an extremely dry spring for the region.

    Auckland's already in a water shortage - with 25 per cent less water in dams than this time last year.

    Meteorologist Georgina Griffiths says some rain should fall in August - but it won't break the drought.

    She says we need rain every one or two days - for three to four months - to solve the deficiency we entered winter with.
