Thursday’s national forecast

An increasing southerly flow will bring precipitation to the lower and eastern South Island today as well as the lower North Island.

Most of the precipitation will fall in the form of rain.  However, some snow is possible in higher elevations.  For Canterbury, snow flurries may be seen down to 600m this morning and then lowering to 200m late this afternoon.

Dry conditions are expected for the West Coast of the South Island, as well as much of the North Island except Wellington and Wairarapa.

Temperatures this afternoon will top out in the mid teens about the North Island as well as the West Coast.  Highs will range from 7 to 11 for the rest of the South Island.
