Frequent showers topped up rain water tanks and helped thirsty plants in the western Bay of Plenty overnight and this morning those showers have drifted over the Coromandel Peninsula.
Some of these showers are also spreading across Waiheke Island.
Despite ominous clouds over Auckland only a few drizzle patches and a couple of light showers have brushed the eastern part of the city.
