It may be fine but then it could be wet according to the changable weather forecasts coming out. I hope it is fine for the Show for Camillia as she said it was wet in Australia.
Can't having her go back home with wrong impressions of the weather on this side of the globe! :-s

Not the so called typical hot NWster sort of day for the Show but should be pleasant for all the people that were there including Charley and his wife Camillia :D

A sudden fall of rain begins - big raindrops!
Wind northeast.

Edit to add: can hear and see a very few bits of hail within the heavy rain.

Rain eased off about twenty minutes ago but has just returned, great big drops and the odd hailstone again.
15.1 deg.

:D spectacular just at the moment: black cloud to north-east, sunny in the west, illuminating occasional gigantic raindrops falling straight down, glittering against that dark backdrop.

Not the warmest of Show Weeks, but I read in the history of Show Weeks, that 1976 was the worst/coldest, even with a snowfall in Chch one evening.
