Hope everyone had a great Xmas Day.

See what the sea breeze convergence can trigger across the Auckland region this afternoon.
A lovely start to the day here. :smile:

That storm is severe warned now. Thunder was very frequent here a little while ago but has died off a bit now.

Often first place to catch these types of
showers, they are elsewhere for once so baking in sun here, that could mean something more intense later however as the ground sure will be warm.

Who put the LED's on the lightning arrestor ?

Looks like I missed a bit of action at home Xmas day! Should hopefully keep the garden happy while I'm away. Beautiful weather in Eastern BOP since I arrived Xmas eve. Hopefully Wellington keeps up this trend early in the new year..
