A FANTASTIC LOOK TO OUR WEDNESDAY – SUNNY & SETTLED WEATHER FOR ALL
Good evening. Our colder south-west flow is now easing, with the last of the showers and snow flurries clearing about northern parts of the region. ‘Healthy’ rainfall totals were recorded earlier today, especially about the foothills between Methven and Oxford, with a number of spots recording between 15-20mm. Snow lowered to around 1300m, with anywhere between 5-20cm recorded about our local ski fields.
Geraldine grabbed top spot today, with a modest 14.3 degrees; the full list of the daily ‘highs’ below. Under clearing skies this evening, widespread frost develops tonight, possibly severe about the Mackenzie Country and our inland basins – source our town pages for specific & moderated overnight temperatures.
High pressure largely dominates our weather from Wednesday onwards, with nor-easterly/easterly winds and areas of lower and middle level cloud over the weekend. We may see isolated drizzle patches at time about the Canterbury Plains & Coast.
Early and middle stages of next week look more ‘active’ with a number of rain and snow possibilities on current analysis.
