We got some pea-sized hail yesterday at 5pm, which turned into heavy rain and thunder after a few minutes. It's supposed to rain all of next week.

My great grandfather used to live in a beachside home in Seal Beach. The reason I know this is because my genealogist-niece found a newspaper article from the 1930s about him saving a swimmer who got caught in a rip current. If I remember correctly, he was in his 70s at the time...

I would love to see that, South Side of Seal Beach has always had a flooding issue...its raining cats & dogs here and snowing in the mountains, I believe we are going to have 100% snow pack this year if not more since it was at 64% just before Christmas... :idea:

Australia is cooking and Eddie's left the oven door open.....

Hot summer day for the north, heavy rain for parts of south

Parts of New Zealand are going to see another sunny summer's day on Saturday, with temperatures expected to crack 30 degrees Celsius (86ºF).

Met Service meteorologist Rob Kerr said an active front is moving up the country, bringing heat, showers and wind to some areas.

Parts of the upper North Island can expect to see temperatures ranging from the mid-20s to about 30C on Saturday.

Beachgoers especially in the Kaikoura, Kerikeri, and Gisbourne regions, will see that heat and sunshine, with 30C forecast.

"It's going to be pretty warm despite the cloud," Kerr said.

During the past week, temperatures in many parts of Australia have climbed above 45C (113ºF), in some places getting close to 50C (122ºF).

Although New Zealand was already getting hot days before the Australian heat wave, Kerr said there was a slight link between the weather in Australia and what we can expect to see here.

Sea surface temperatures around New Zealand are also warmer than usual, which plays a part, he said.

Temperatures ranging from the mid to high 20s (60sF) can be expected for the eastern and southern parts of the South Island, including Christchurch and Ashburton. While the West Coast can expect slightly cooler weather around the 20C (68ºF) mark.

Wellingtonians can expect slightly cooler weather at about 22C (71ºF) with wind forecast. It should be a nice day in Whanganui, reaching about 27C (80ºF).

Aucklanders can expect temperatures of around 25C (77ºF), with some cloudy periods forecast.

The active front, which is preceded by a strong and very moist northwest flow, will move up the South Island on Saturday, and be followed by very strong and showery west to southwest flow.

The front was expected to move over the North Island on Sunday and weaken.

WEATHER WARNINGS

Heavy rain is expected for northern Westland, Buller and the headwaters of Canterbury Lakes and Rivers on Saturday. Thunderstorms are also possible for the Westland and Buller areas.

Gale north westerlies are also expected for southern and central New Zealand.

A heavy rain warning is in place for Fiordland, Westland south of Otira and the headwaters of the Otago Lakes and Rivers.

A strong wind warning is in force for the Canterbury High Country, and for coastal Southland and Clutha, and about Otago Peninsula.

A strong wind watch which was in place for Wairarapa, including the Tararua District, has been upgraded to a full warning.

Wind chill is -27C, and time to drive to work.
Winds increasing, today, so coming home will be even colder.
Tomorrow morning, wind chill will be in the -30's
I am not scheduled to go to work, tomorrow, and am real glad about that!
