A band of heavy rain has formed over parts of Auckland at the same time as rush hour, Weatherwatch said.

Localised areas of surface flooding are likely and further delays for commuters are expected in some areas.

The heaviest rain appears to be in central and northern areas and is heading southwards slowly.

Bands of rain, mostly light to moderate, are expected overnight. A few isolated heavy falls are still possible overnight with similar risks.
