Current weather info

Parts of the country have been or are getting some pretty ordinary weather  but what’s it like where you are at the moment?

We’ve heard reports of strong winds with rain or showers with snow in the south over inland areas and yet other parts seem to be getting sunshine and reasonably calm conditions. Invercargill has had thunder and hail this morning with very cold temperatures.

Today seems to be the most changeable in the south and tomorrow eastern parts of the North Island are likely to be in for a bit of a chilly change.

Temperatures are doing a bit of a yo-yo in places but if there’s a wind blowing is it making it feel cooler or not that bad at all?

There’s a chance of frosts moving into the south tomorrow night and temperatures could go well below freezing if conditions are calm enough.

We’d love to get your current weather reports and please let us know which part of the country you’re in.

Here in Christchurch the wind turned southerly in the last hour or so…NW was feeling pretty cool so I lit the fire, glad I did as it’s feeling pretty chilly here now – just dropped below 10 but the wind chill is making things feel pretty wintery.

A Southerly squall has just hit Oamaru. Windchill of 4.2 C. Ruining what was a reasonable day weather wise.

Definitely cold in Invercargill compared to the rest of April but it seems that a line from the airport through to the east of the city have worn the worst of the hail/rain – north and south of the city didn’t wear it as badly. It felt colder with the NW wind earlier than the SW that’s prevailing now. And the sun has now poked it’s head out, lol.
