I was watching the action from the top of Mt Eden (and it looks like you were fairly nearby, spwill). Spectacular stuff! Thanks for the photos.

Yes, more heavy showers around Auckland this morning, have a look at the Met Service 10am Radar.


Brassnz, I often up on Mt Eden when there's stormy weather about, it's such a good vantage point. :D
