Video: Lightning and hail from Riccarton yesterday evening

Mark Darbyshire filmed some amazing lightning yesterday evening in Riccarton, Christchurch as the thunderstorm passed over.

There are two clips, the first is a shorter version with clips of lightning edited together. The second below shows a longer clip of the storm rolling in over a 20 minute period.

Thanks Mark for sending the links through!

Thank you Mark for taking the time to upload the 23 minute video, it was brilliant to watch for someone who has missed out on a lot of storms recently! (And thank you WeatherWatch for sharing the links as always 🙂
