A dusting of snow visible on the Port Hills this morning from where I live in HoonHay.
Not seeing any up there here (Halswell). On the school run we observed slightest of dusting visible round shady bits up high down to about 350m. Well done Metservice

Looks like a beefy shower with red on radar approaching Hamilton from the NW. Yet the surface wind is a SE, the direct opposite.

YTD rain is now less than 100mm behind average for my station. 2013-2016 all had lower annual totals at this point in the year.

GFS modelling seems to be modelling increasingly stable uneventful weather for the coming ten days over NZ with a few garden variety spring blips on the radar.

Back on line again with a new computer rather than squinting by using my cell phone.

Looking like very little rain here next 10 days. A welcome change but hoping the spring dry hasn't set in already

I agree, just a low risk. If any lightning occurs it will be isolated.

No drizzle here but instead rain droplets large enough to make bubbles on the puddles, 14mm so far.
