THUNDERSTORM RISK FOR INLAND PARTS OF THE REGION
Good morning. Our Tuesday is looking mostly fine overall, bar areas of widespread low cloud and fog about the coast and plains early on and again from evening. We may see a few isolated showers develop about the foothills between 2pm and 8pm; some could be thundery, with hail between Waimate and Mt Hutt.
Source your town page for specific details today, regarding wind, temperatures & rainfall chances – there will be contrast across the region.
Our fine weather largely continues on Wednesday and Thursday, bar afternoon and evening convective showers about the foothills.
A cooler southerly change may bring some showers on Friday; we’re still waiting on a little more model consistency, before changes are made to town pages.
