For over a decade WeatherWatch.co.nz has loved to receive your comments and questions here, however we need to tighten up on our rules of reply so that we can spend more time focusing on forecasting.
Before you ask a question please ensure you have read our latest news stories, weather video and specially made infographics on our homepage, as we will no longer be answering questions that are already generally answered there, or answered already in our hourly or 10 day forecasts at both WeatherWatch.co.nz or RuralWeather.co.nz

Hi there, Canterbury Weather Updates is currently forecasting a significant snow event to sea level next Saturday. What are your thoughts on this eventuating? Going by your data, it looks as though it’s a bit far fetched currently.

We do expect a surge of colder air later next week and into Saturday – but certainly nothing to indicate a significant snow event, or a sea level snow event. Keep an eye on http://www.RuralWeather.co.nz – the largest weather data site for Canterbury to keep on top of it. Some potential for some polar air which is why the highs are dropping back to single digits but looking quite dry next 10 days.

Hi Jet, yes take a look at our live lightning tracker as you can see a few moving in from the Tasman Sea. They aren’t for everyone though, so your local forecast + radar + live lightning maps should have you covered.
