A dusting of snow? #WeatherRisks and your Main Centre outlook on Thursday

A band of very cold air has brushed the North Island this morning – particularly eastern parts – and while we’ve seen temperatures below zero in the interior of the South Island, there are some regions further north that may receive a dusting of snow.

It may flurry, but only down to about 600m, and only in a few short sustained bursts through the passes, but snow in November is snow in November!

As well as this, south to southeasterly winds could gust strongly at times through Cook Strait and about the northern tip of East Cape.

Main Centres


After a warm start to the week, temperatures drop a little in Auckland, with areas of cloud and breezy Sou’West winds, and showers late afternoon or evening, with a Sou’East change. Temperatures fall to the upper teens.


Chilly in the capital too, even after morning showers clear, though a few sunny areas from afternoon could make for a pleasant day, despitte brisk southerly winds and a high of around 12C.


And morning showers clear near the coast in the early afternoon, though the odd one may persist inland till evening, along with cool southwesterly winds and a high in the early teens.
