Actually never turned southerly but has gone a cool NE with a few weak bits of CU going up here there.
Going by the fact it's a strong SW down Dunedin way and NE in Oamaru and Timaru this could be something to watch for stormwise tonight but more likly on the Peninnsula just weather for thought :lol: .
Otherwise it's all eyes on tomorrow's skies.
Looks to have been the odd strike inland from Rakia before on tracker too.
Cheers
