Looks like that storm is going East Brian. Still a very wide front of lightning, but it will miss Auckland by the looks.

I had a sneaky look at ricks page to, after my system picked up over 200 strikes after noon.

All the best, Rolf.

Not missing Auckland by much at the moment by the looks of things.

One or two good ones close to here at the moment as well
