If a low which undergoes explosive cyclogenesis, meaning it deepens very rapidly is a short time, exceeding a certain amount in 24 hours it can be defined as a 'bomb' low.
There is a low approaching New Zealand on Wednesday which meets this criteria and it is expected to bring damaging winds to exposed parts of the South Island and lower North Island, and extremely heavy rain to the South Island west coast later Wednesday.
This low brings extremely large accumulations of rain, up to 300mm in 24 hours for some of the ranges, which could cause widespread flooding, slips and damage to roads. Rivers and streams will rise rapidly, including those in Canterbury that feed from the Alps.This event will especially impact anyone in the mountains, river users, tourists and those traveling on the roads. As the low moves off the country to the east on Thursday it drags up an unseasonably cold southwest flow from the south causing overnight temperatures on Thursday and Friday to plummet back to single digits, with some areas dropping to 4 degrees.

a car pulls up in front of our driveway this morning, I'm shovelling almond hulls down the front & a lady gets out & asks for directions I pointed her in the right direction & prepared to get back to my shovelling & then I hear " oh you have cows how lovely, I'm a vegan" I'm thinking great this is all I need with 750kgs of almonds to shovel so I answer with " yes we run a dairy farm thank you they are lovely" thinking well that was quite polite of me "I think cows are lovely but they need to be free & I only drink almond milk & milking them is cruel" I'm thinking hmmm so I answer with "oh but our cows produce almond milk see here what I'm shovelling that's almond hulls we feed those to the cows & they give us almond milk" - surely I have gone to far with that one no one would believe that "My gosh" she squeals " how wonderful I'll have to tell my friends about this farm" Shit I'm hoping she has no idea how to find our place again. I throughly enjoyed shovelling the hulls this morning after that effort.
