It is almost 100% low cumulus at the moment, and I know it drizzled in the night because the bricks around the car were wet but not under the car, however nothing is in the gauge.... you can actually feel the extremely light rain on your skin ... but it's going to be more annoying than anything else.
currently 19.7, overnight 15.8
no wind
Pete's rain gauge looks like a couple of punk flies have piddled in it but nothing of any kind of significance to report

Been an unusual day here
Had some storms last night - Pete's going to put up some photos when he can
This morning about 6 am it was clear above but quite a thick haze all around, that cleared during the morning and it generally became very humid. I was in town during the morning and coming home I saw a huge pillar of haze out over the southern ocean, it's gone now and the humidity has dropped.
Currently 24.2 ( was 26.1 ), overnight low was 18.7
The sky is mostly clear with a few cumulus
Quite a brisk SE blowing

well apart from the mark 1 eyeball, Pete has a very flash woolworths wireless weather station
so flash it comes in a plain box with wireless weather station printed on it
it does the job ... sort of, gives a digital readout of temp and humidity ( inside )

anyway in Albany at the moment 20.9, overnight low 16.2
it is cloudy but this will probably burn off as usual to a fine afternoon
the wind has dropped right away
