head weather analyst Philip Duncan says the large Tasmanian low continues to churn offshore this evening. Showers are making their way onshore about Taranaki where a Heavy Rain Warning remains in place through tomorrow afternoon. The warning also includes Waitomo, but most of the heavy falls are expected around Taranaki. The majority of rain tonight should be in these areas. However, showers are likely to dot much of the remainder of the southern half of the North Island. The threat for small tornadoes about Taranaki still exists as well.
