Long Range snowfall outlook for the South Island

There was some snow yesterday with Cardrona and Treble Cone doing the best with 20cm of fresh snow. Unfortunately today will see a fair bit of shower activity with temps warming. Some snow about the peaks at times but nothing to get too excited about. Winds will also be very strong with Mt Hutt already announcing it's closed today with winds reaching 200km/h up high. The good news is that everything should start to pick up with a strong system arriving overnight on Friday that should see snow falling to low levels on Saturday.

Light snow to follow this with another system due on the 5th that should bring another good fall of snow. We should then see more snow coming in the following days up to at least the 8th. This should be enough to finally create a base and allow for more terrain to open at the snowfields.

Please take note that winds will be very strong across the 30th-1st and at times will be well over 120km/h which may see lifts on hold at times.
