    Abstract This report summarises the meteorology and hydrology of the
    3 - 4 October 2003 storm event in the Wellington region. The
    report gives an overview of the synoptic weather patterns,
    quantifies rainfall and river flows, and provides a frequency
    analysis of the event using data from Greater Wellington's
    environmental monitoring network.

    During the storm landslides and flooding caused extensive
    damage in Paekakariki and surrounding areas. This report does
    not describe the damage that occurred. For a description of the
    flooding and landslide activity the reader is referred to Duffill
    Watts & Tse (2003).
