Weather Video: Election day forecast

The weather forecast from this Friday to next Monday is a messy one, including for our election day this Saturday.

The forecast for voting day isn’t flash with a mix of wind, rain, showers and even snow for some in the deep south.

However there are still going to be plenty of opportunities to get out and vote on the day.

Next week will kick off windy and colder – but the spring westerlies should lock in further next week too, warming things up a bit again.

Hi there

Later on Saturday southwesterlies freshen bringing showers, some snow to 500m does look possible at this stage for inland Canterbury (a tad lower to 400m infact) however this system is quick moving.

1 or 2cm possible to 400m however snow may not settle, once you get above 500m 5cm could fall then above 600m there could be 10cm. Those are the sort of figures we are dealing with at the moment. Snow is very complicated though so +/- 3 to 5cm would be wise to take into consideration for the amounts above right now. Only when we get to the day before and confidence is higher can we start to be more confident on those numbers.
