VIDEO: Cooler change coming after warm, wet Thursday in the north

NZ is stuck between two big highs and as a result we have a band of rain with heavy falls slowly crossing over the North Island today.

Behind it is a cooler southerly which will drop temperatures across Friday and Saturday.

However by Sunday – and going into next week – it looks as though westerlies will be dominating and that wind flow is slightly warmer usually.

Any chance for snow in the next few weeks for the various skifields?
I’m especially interested in Queenstown / Wanaka region (with school holidays approaching) – but I assume others will be interested in other areas too!

Hi Jason, thanks for the question on Southern Skifields and sadly there isn’t a lot coming. There may be a few flurries today and then again briefly mid next week but it’s either too dry for snow, or too mild. Some chances for making snow though with sub-zero overnight lows for the most part.
