Weather History

A southerly storm was felt throughout the colony, but most severely in the "middle portions". The wind, followed by heavy rain, blighted the vegetation on the coast in a "very unusual manner". This storm made the rainfall for the month excessive, especially in the North Island and on the East Coast of the South Island.Feb 29 1840 - A tropical cyclone passed close to the Bay of Islands. "The storm's centre passed just to the southward of the Bay of Islands, at which place there was a calm of ten minutes, when the storm recommenced with equal violence from the opposite quarter; the trees that were prostrated at the Bay of Islands were found lying with their tops to the northward."
