A FINE LOOK TO OUR THURSDAY – AREAS OF LOW CLOUD & FOG THIS MORNING FOR PARTS OF THE REGION.

Good morning. It’s another mixed start across the region with many areas & towns waking to low cloud and fog once again; more dominate and widespread about Coastal Canterbury and low lying areas across the Canterbury Plains (below 150m.) Frost activity is confined to isolated areas & basins with Twizel currently our coldest spot this morning on -1 at 6:00am.

We’re now moving into a settled period of weather under high pressure before a number of rain systems take aim this weekend and early next week about the Main Divide & Canterbury Headwaters. Heavier rain and strong winds are likely about the Canterbury Headwaters & Main Divide from Saturday onwards.

Later next week we’re watching the possibility of colder southerlies, widespread rain and snow about the hills. Snow may cause disruptions about our higher passes and we may issue a range of warnings as we move into early stages of next week.

This remainder of the week will be mostly fine under high pressure bar the weekend near the Main Divide where heavier rain and strong NW winds are likely. Out east across the Canterbury Plains & Coast it will remain dry and mild especially during the weekend with temperatures well above average for late May.

Next week looks more active with a series of rain makers in the Tasman bringing heavy rain for western areas, but more sunny and milder conditions for the Canterbury Plains & Coast.

Late next week winds switch to the south and we’re watching the possibility of some rain and snow about the higher hills. Snow may cause transport issues about our higher roads and passes over Queens Birthday weekend.
