The Nelson Tasman region has been warned to expect heavy rain and thunderstorms overnight.

MetService has issued a weather warning for northwest Nelson and Civil Defence has asked people to be vigilant.

Northerly rain is forecast to become heavy from Friday afternoon, with possible thunderstorms overnight.

Up to 150mm of rain is expected about the ranges from 6pm on Friday, and up to 100mm likely near the coast.

Civil Defence spokesman Roger Ball says he doesn't expect larger rivers to reach significant flood levels but asked that people take care around waterways.
