DELUGE: Heavy rain covers Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay as well as the western Bay of Plenty and the tip of Great Barrier Island in this 11.28am rain radar image. Hastings is just below the blue spots on the east coast.

Just an update on how things went today.

We have had heavy rain off and on all day.  But the heavy winds didn’t hit us as expected.  It has turned cold as a cold front from the south has come up, saving us from the worse of the winds.  So all in all a non event (touch wood as it is not quite over yet)

This is the coast near where I live.

I will try and get out tomorrow and take some photos.

  1. My husband was a working reporter for years and spent a lot of time out there in the weather. In retirement, he is very happy to follow the progress (or lack) of storms from the comfort of the living room. Nonetheless, I think if I had a weather-proof camera, I might be out there too. Quite a storm there!
