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.

The track of tomorrows low has changed slightly. It is increasingly likely that it’ll move up the west coast before heading for the North Island. A few light snow showers will clear in the afternoon in Otago, Eastern Canterbury has better chances for snow, with 10-20cm probable. Slip on the sunglasses and slap on the sunscreen on Tuesday as it’ll be mostly sunny under a high. Winds will begin to strengthen from the east on Wednesday with high cloud moving in as a low looms in the Tasman. Snow could start developing overnight in Eastern Canterbury.
