Hail and snow to 400m? Not sure where you pulled that from! Even the ‘experts’ aren’t picking that forecast. Makes for good reading I guess…

850mb modeled temps get to -4 this evening about Southland, cold enough for a few snow flurries to get to 400m. More then likely not alot if anything will settle at that level as precipitations rates are quite low but the temperatures support a few getting to that level.

Thanks for the support.
