Weather warning for east of North Island

5:00 pm on 19 April 2009

A severe weather warning's been issued for the east of the North Island as the MetService predicts some very heavy rainfall on Monday.

It says the Coromandel Ranges, Gisborne and Hawkes Bay will probably be worst hit by a low that's expected to bring rain to most of the North Island.

And there may be more to come.

The MetService says it expects to issue more rain warnings for the north and east of the North Island later this week.
