How is your Saturday? Soggy or sunny?

Rain continues to spread across the North Island today.  The majority of it is falling across Northland, Auckland, the Waikato and now moving into Taranaki.  Very few places on the North Island will escape the rain today.

There was even some rain this morning across the central South Island thanks to a weak little boundary.  Most of that, however, has fallen apart.

Sunday is looking very wet for the North Island.  The South Island is still looking fairly dry with the exception of Canterbury and Marlborough.  A few showers are possible in these areas tomorrow.  But I don’t think the day will be a total washout.

So, how are things where you are today?  Are your plans getting rained out?  What are you doing to keep busy if you are stuck indoors?  We will re-publish some of your comments a little later this afternoon.

Hi Phil, I remember you saying in about October that this summer was going to be a really hot and sunny one. Not wishing to rub it in, but what went wrong?

We usually get some dodgy weather at this time of year, just wait until March and April when things tend to settle down.
Very pleasent in Wellington at the moment, overcast and light winds, great weather for my 30km bike ride earlier.

It has been raining non-stop since about dawn today (Saturday, 7Jan). The rain slants in on a 45-degree angle from the SE, pushed along by rude gusts of wind. Most Miserable, with little chance of change. Apparently.
Yes, plans are getting rained out. Plans have been rubbished for a circle of friends to gather around a small campfire on Monday eve and welcome the first full moon of 2012.
What are we doing to “keep busy” now that we’re stuck indoors? Pouting and sighing until midday, and now attempting to change tack and do something else. Change the tone. Accept the reality.
We’re over it! Where is summer??
