The Mountainwatch Detailed Forecast is provided by our resident meteorology sensei "The Grasshopper". The South Island analysis is issued around 7am every morning (maybe later on weekends) and is intended to provide an additional human element to the automated forecast data provided above. Sometimes we won't agree exactly with the model data - but if we ever call something significantly different we'll do our best to explain why.
7:00am Saturday 1 October 2016
The low will track towards the south of the South Island tomorrow. It will be mostly cloudy with the chance of a few light afternoon rain showers. A ridge of high pressure builds in on Monday to give us a mostly fine day with just a small chance of an afternoon shower. Winds will strengthen from the north again on Tuesday as a powerful cold front moves in from the Tasman. We will see rain develop during the afternoon with possible heavy falls about The Divide.
