Southerly storm clouds dispelling the sunshine

We have been having mild weather - we have just come through the warmest June on record for New Zealand, part of a disturbing sequence of warm weather records.  But some wintery cold arrived yesterday and even though I don't like being cold I rather welcomed it.

A southerly cloud front over Baring Head and advancing towards Wellington's south coast.  It quickly dulled what had been a sunny morning, chilled us, rained heavily, and even sprinkled a little snow on the Orongorongos - the lovely crinkly hills seen in the distance.
