This weekend, especially Saturday night and into Sunday, is going to be very wet. The models are currently predicting up to 120mm by the end of Monday.
You can expect the first bout of showers to starting this evening. Then there should be a bit of a break on Friday before the main system comes in on Saturday and beats us up Saturday, Sunday and into Monday.
