Current indications from GFS and UK (MS 5-day charts) seem to point to a bit of a drizzly/grey morning and drier afternoon for Canterbury, sunshine later for Auckland/Northland. Nothing wild.

Yes, sadly, but mind you who would want to interrupt their Christmas Dinner and dash off and chase a thunderstorm? :rolleyes:

I would have chased Waikato tomorrow afternoon /evening (after Xmas lunch) if the trough was quicker to come in, would have been a good thunderstorm set up with earlier timing.

I’m not home for Christmas but I see it was 31.9 at home today. Very hot and equaling my record temp. I have a maize crop near by the station this year. I am starting to think this might be impacting my temp on still days.

Just nudged 30C today as have done the previous two days. Some clouds trying to bubble up now which may just make for a very warm evening.
