Northland will likely receive a few showers and Gisborne may do too.

Hi WW, You were bang on with forecast for Northland, had cloud, sun and just now a great heavy shower, looks like more could come in but have to wait and see on that. Bit cool around the gills too this morning, about 11 deg here and an Autumn feel for sure.
