It rains all year round in Auckland. You know it’s winter when it’s worth wearing a raincoat because it’s a bit too cold to let your soaked clothes just dry on your body.

But even by Auckland standards, the last few weeks have been really wet. Yesterday morning, we had 872 lightening strikes in a two hour period, and about 24mm of rain — that’s around twice the monthly average.

The Met Service is forecasting a respite over the next few days — showers instead rain.
