50 years ago this month the towns of Mataura and Wyndham were both affected by flooding.  Wyndham suffering the worst as the entire town was flooded. Matauras flooding was confined to the East side of the river.  In 1968 neither town had the flood protection that it has today.  Here are a couple of photos taken by the Southland Catchment Board back then that show the inundation.  These photos and more can be found online at www.es.govt.nz.  Once in the website click on maps and select the Natural Hazards folder. In the photos section there are many photos of Southand floods.

Looks like its time to get out the winter woollies.  Its going to be a wet week, with a couple of heavy downpours possible today and tonight in Fiordland.  We could even see snow in Southland, down to 500 metres tomorrow and as low as 300 metres on Tuesday.

Its not going to reach warning thresholds, but we are going to get a good 20mm drenching in Invercargill and along the coast around lunch tomorrow. Keep an eye out for surface flooding if you are out and about.
