A heavy rain warning is in place for Auckland and Great Barrier Island from 10pm Sunday until 2pm Monday, NZ Herald reports. At least 80-110mm of rain could fall during that time. The city is also under a severe gale watch for the same time period. Several boats have already found themselves in trouble due to the strong north-easterly winds, with one yacht being towed to Wynyard Quarter by Coastguard Auckland.
