As predicted by TRN’s Weather Watch Centre yesterday morning the third significant Tasman Sea low in weeks brought torrential rain to some parts of Northern New Zealand – and unlike last weeks rain storm, this one did provide heavy rain for Auckland. 
According to weather maps provided by it’s quite clear to see that the main rain band has cleared Auckland but is still falling over parts of Waikato.  
MetService’s northern rain radar has been offline since yesterday afternoon.
“Today’s forecast for Auckland does show a few sunny spells but plenty of heavy showers mixed in too”.   At 6:45am Auckland had a few heavy showers and a pink sunrise.  “Unfortunately that proverb is true – red skies in the morning, shepherds warning – there’s a good chance we’ll see heavy showers today and more rain or showers tonight.  To limit surface flooding, residents should clear Autumn leaves from roadside gutters”.
And it is a chilly start across most of New Zealand. “The lower North Island, south of about Napier and New Plymouth is hovering around 7 degrees, while it’s only 1 degrees in Christchurch and Ashburton, minus 2 in Dundin and a freezing minus 3 in Invercargill, Wanaka and Queenstown – the coldest start to the day so far this year.
A southerly is expected to put a chill on temperatures over northern New Zealand today.
