A bit of a mixed bag this week with light scattered snow showers at times across Tuesday and Wednesday before clearing on Thursday.

Things become a bit wild on Friday with strong winds with showers developing with snow possible about the peaks across Friday and Saturday. Sunday should see the temps drop with snowfalls across the snowfields. We could see around 10-20cm during this time.

Looking long range snow is likely across the 3rd to the 5th and then the 7th-8th of August. It looks like a moderate fall so things looking good at this stage.

The outlook for the NZ South Island resorts looks positive with the El Nino pattern setting in. A lot more strong low pressure systems should slide under the Australian mainland and then shoot up towards New Zealand bringing consistent and larger snowfalls.
