Hi guys! Me and my wife are going tramping in Mount Cook National Park over the Easter weekend (specifically Saturday and Sunday) and we are really keen to know whether it’s going to be wet and rainy (in which case we won’t see any scenery!) or clear and dry (fingers crossed!!). I have checked out your official Easter weekend forecast but it does not specifcally mention the Mount Cook area (we’re staying in the village) so I would appreciate any advice!

i strictly do not want rain, especially on good friday, travelling up to aucks by bus! i want dry weather, at least for easter weekend, then afterwards it can bucket down lol (i prefer it didnt since it rains in palmy constantly) but cannot always be greedy

It would certainly be a “Good Friday” If the Waikato got 100mm of rain. I might even feed my cows easter eggs to celebrate!!

i think you’d be hard pushed to find anyone in northland who won’t be hoping and praying that the forecast for rain is finally right!! bring on the rain!!

Rain, Rain, Rain it can rain every day over Easter 100-200mls and I will have the biggest smile and my cows will too. Just got back from a short holiday in Brisbane – beautiful and green lush grass, it’s like our rainfall amounts had swapped for the Summer.

I’m sitting here in the UK having enjoyed a reasonably bright early spring Saturday. The flowers and plants in my garden are just beginning to grow.
Things are looking good for Easter.
Then somebody comes through the door and tells me that the forecasters say it might snow again next week!
Never mind. Will enjoy my evening meal with a bottle of your NZ Sauvignon blanc.
