A deep, slow-moving low northeast of New Zealand is forecast to direct a strong, moist southeast flow across the North Island from Sunday until the middle of next week.

A Heavy Rain Warning is now in force for Gisborne north of the City, while the remainder of the region is under a Heavy Rain Watch.

In addition, Strong Wind Watches are now in force for the eastern coast of Northland, Great Barrier Island, and the north of the Coromandel Peninsula.

Heavy rain may cause streams and rivers to rise rapidly. Surface flooding and slips are also possible and driving conditions may be hazardous.
