Updated: Rain and Snow Accumulation Maps for next few days (+4 Maps)

With a spring blast affecting New Zealand we have wintry weather in the south and milder, windier, weather in the north.

Precipitation (a fancy word for 'wet stuff falling from the sky') levels are highest in the south west of both islands due to the south to south west winds blowing in rain, showers, hail and snow. Precipitation is a good word to use when it's more than just rain falling - ie, snow, sleet and hail too.

Eastern areas are drier due to this set up with below normal rainfall expected there.

Here's the latest rain and snow totals for the days ahead...
