Another beautiful day here too after the morning fog burnt off, 17C but felt quite warm with very little wind. Been such a nice reprieve after the incessant rains of July

Anyone have a good view of the darker cloud over half of Christchurch now?

Why does the light seem strange? Like eclipses

Just looks like a traditional NW arch to me. The day often appears quite gloomy in Ashburton when this occurs.

I went outside just at the time of being on the edge of the shadow created by the lower cloud. Hence the eclipse sensation...

Thick fog arrived here about 20mins ago, should be short lived.

While the Winter has been wet here there has been a lack of the heavy thundery shower type weather that can be a feature of our Winter.

Just ending 6 days with no rainfall here, been a nice change! Looks like we could have our coldest nights of the year late this coming week, if the models hold

Another incredible sky this morning - this time looking to the south. An incredible orange glow shining through the windows.
