CONTRAST ACROSS THE REGION TODAY – scattered rain for parts of Mid and North Canterbury

Good morning. We have contrast across the region this morning, with freezing fog yet again about Twizel, while scattered rain affects parts of Mid and North Canterbury, with much milder conditions. Omarama is our coldest spot, on -4.2 degrees, with Twizel also on -2.3 at 5:10am.

Our Saturday has a rather ‘scrappy’ look, with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers affecting eastern areas, before clearing away into the afternoon, or evening about Banks Peninsula.

Check into your town page for specific and moderated details today – there will be contrast across the region.

Our Sunday looks brighter overall, with mostly sunny skies, before cloud increases late afternoon, or evening.

A much colder south/south-westerly flow brings rain and snow about the high country early next week and we may see changes to town pages later this morning; additionally a road snowfall warning may be issued for our higher passes. 

Colder air and lower snow chances may increase late in July/early August – more via our ‘Live Weather Feed’.
