Video: Wintry snap with some snow later Thursday and into Friday

We have more rough weather to end this week but we bring both bad news and good in Tuesday’s weather video with Philip Duncan.

The bad, for most people anyway, is that more rain is coming on Thursday and Friday across New Zealand with some heavy falls. On top of the rain that has just fallen this is one to keep an eye on.

By the end of Thursday a cold southerly heads northwards up the South Island bringing snow to alpine passes and down to just 200m (generally) around Southland, Otago and Canterbury.

It’s not a major snow event, nor will snow be heavy to low levels, but just a chance of snow flurries on Thursday night and across Friday. The Desert Road may be impacted on Friday night or Saturday morning.

The good news is that a big high rolls in on Saturday and Sunday giving most people at least 24 hours of dry, calm, weather – and some regions may even get both Saturday and Sunday with calm, dry weather.
