A sub-tropical low with energy left over from Cyclone Donna is affecting the North Island with heavy rain and the risk of localised slips and flooding.
As of 8am the centre of this low was over Northland – with the bulk of the rain pushing southwards.
Heavy downpours will impact Auckland City this morning affecting peak traffic. Watch for surface water and possible flooding. The heavy rain in Auckland should ease back this morning to lighter falls. During the 7am hour WeatherWatch.co.nz updated social media about the risks of flooding in Auckland from localised heavy downpours – motorists should take extreme care.
Meanwhile heavy rain is pressing down across much of the North Island.
