Hi WW. Just been out admiring the moon in fairly close proximity to Jupiter. Nice clear skies at the moment. Been some nice autumn weather recently here at Waipu but a nice drop of rain tomorrow would go down well. I have only recorded 253 mils year to date so a bit of a top up would be good.

Still catch your forecasts as your accuracy is very good.

Cheers Steve
