A ferocious storm on Sunday 16th June suddenly departed to the East leaving behind trees and power lines down.

At around 5pm the storm suddenly gave way to clear skies with its edge lit up by the setting sun. Only moments before the northerly wind was gusting to nearly 100k with torrential rain falling at the rate of 180mm / hr. A total of 24mm fell in the afternoon. The sun had been dimmed to 4W / m2 but quickly rose in the last moments of the day to 50W / m2
