Deep south sees the sun again

Most of the country is expecting a fairly average sort of Saturday with some rain, showers or drizzle but not for the first time this winter, the southern end of the country is seeing most of the settled weather.

Unusually for the time of year, most of the moisture has been in the top two thirds of New Zealand and the bitterly cold southerlies with a wintry mix of rain, hail and snow have been lacking-not that Southlanders and those in Central Otago mind that much.

The skifields are still humming after some decent falls earlier in the season and the cold air that has been hanging over them for sometime isn’t seeing the snow bases melt away quickly at all over southern areas.

A nor’ wester is expected to kick in tomorrow but not much rain is expected until later on Tuesday over the Southland plains.
