The capital is set for more wet weather as a southerly change brings a rain band over Wellington and up to Masterton.
It comes just days after the capital was hit with a "one-in-10-year rainfall event", causing wind damage and surface flooding around the region, and a slip that evacuated several properties in Newlands.
Surface flooding had already been reported in various parts of the Wellington Region on Thursday afternoon, as rain began to batter the capital.
Waka Kotahi NZTA has warned of surface flooding on SH1 at the Johnsonville southbound on-ramp, and advised motorists to take extra care, or use an alternative route.
