People driving around the Bay of Plenty today are being warned to take care on the roads.

The NZ Transport Agency is asking people to make sure they have their headlights on while out and about.

“Please take extra care if you're out on the roads this morning.

“It's gloomy out so keep your lights on, slow down and increase your following distance.”

The MetService is forecasting rain for today, which is forecast to clear up this afternoon.

The weather organisation says there is a front moving across the upper North Island.

“Although the front is weakening, there is still decent rain for parts along the front as it makes its way eastwards off the country today.”

The MetService is forecasting a fine day tomorrow, with the chance of possible drizzle later in the night.

Sunday is looking wet, with a chance of heavy rain on the cards.
