A narrow line of rain feeding into Taranaki this morning has caused some localised flooding – but the good news it has now cleared away.
Farmers and motorists have been affected by the flood waters this morning.
Some decent surface flooding around Taranaki. Helping to clean my mudguards on work vehicle. #Holdenjetboat

As of mid morning Monday the heaviest rain from Taranaki was moving into Kapiti Coast where isolated flooding is possible this morning, easing before noon.
This afternoon we can’t rule out more showers in Taranaki being fed in from the same airflow but the worst should now be over.
Heavy rain is also affecting Bay of Plenty this morning in some areas.
