MetService has lifted the warning for Bay of Plenty and widespread heavy rain for much of the North Island has passed.
There is the potential for flash flooding and damage to property tonight as a severe weather system passes through the Bay of Plenty region.
In a statement, MetService said that there was a chance of peak rates of 20mm to 30mm of rainfall per hour with thunderstorms possible from the deep low-pressure system.
Motorists are asked to exercise caution and drive to the conditions as visibility may be reduced.
The remainder of the North Island should be covered by heavy falls by early Wednesday as the low moves southeast over New Zealand.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.
New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.
We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.
ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.
Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
