Wanaka's world famous and possibly New Zealand's most photographed tree is marooned by rising waters in Lake Wanaka following six consecutive days of overcast and rainy conditions.

MetService communications meteorologist Lewis Ferris said the average November rainfall was 51.6mm but 35.4mm had fallen in the first 10 days and another 2.4mm recorded early yesterday

He said the wettest November on record was 176mm in 1956 (and in 1957) but that another front was forecast to cross the West Coast tomorrow.
