MetService Severe weather: June 5 to 6.

Heavy rain warnings are in place for parts of the country today as fall brings a mix of weather conditions to the rest.

Cloudy conditions and isolated showers are forecast for those of Northland, Auckland, Coromandel and the Bay of Plenty.

Northlanders can expect rain from tonight before it gets heavier tomorrow morning.

Aucklanders will experience a mostly cloudy day today with isolated showers mainly in the eastern part of the city.

Despite the gloomy sky, a high temperature of 18C compensates.

A nighttime minimum of 13C is also expected in the town of Sails.

Further north, Kaitaia is experiencing a few showers which turn to rain this evening. A maximum of 18C is expected there and a night minimum of 14C.

Clouds are also appearing around the center of the North Island, including Waikato, Waitomo, Taupō, Taumarunui, Taihape, Whanganui, Manawatū and the Horowhenua Kapiti coast.

The temperature drops slightly in Taupō, where a peak of 13 ° C is expected. The 8C overnight low may mean another blanket tonight.
