Sunday is going to be a wet and windy day for much of the North Island as a rapidly deepening low develops in the Tasman Sea, reports WeatherWatch.co.nz.
This morning MetService issued heavy rain warnings for Northland, Coromandel Peninsula, Bay of Plenty and Rotorua.
Heavy rain is also likely to affect Auckland, East Cape, Gisborne, Taupo and Hawkes Bay.
Strong to gale foce east to north east winds may also bring damaging gusts to the eastern Waikato on Sunday.
Up to 80mm is predicted with the rain setting in tomorrow morning in Northland and elsewhere in the afternoon and overnight Sunday into Monday morning.

Despite all that happening in the North Island for next week, down here on the mainland, well in eastern districts, sadly a return to all that “Clagg” again like in June, after nice sunny, but frosty days, that July has given us, so far here.

Hi Team, odd that they ( Metservice ) issue these heavy rain warnings when their own computer model shows no rain for Rotorua area and only minimal rain for bop early hrs of Tuesday morning. Check it out :http://metservice.com/national/maps-rain-radar/rain-radar-forecasts/rain-forecast-3-day
