Snow overnight Tuesday?

Just looked at the forcast. 3rd time "lucky" (or unlucky) for Christchurch? Now we know what will happen, we will be so sure they get it wrong again we will get a big dump one of these days! Next Saturday looking pretty grim too.

I only see sleet in the forecast for Tuesday. Metservice is predicting a snowy day next Saturday, although frankly I don't care about that one - weekend snow days are of no use to me.

puddles11, Jul 4, 6:00 pm

Im in Culverden are predicting snow for us from Tuesday night to friday morning. eeekkkk

jojo76, Jul 4, 6:15 pm

Believe it when I see it

craftylady1, Jul 4, 6:50 pm

I sincerely hope the snow falls somewhere where skiers can benefit from it - but nowhere near me.

calista, Jul 4, 7:07 pm

Wont happen

bosch2006, Jul 4, 8:49 pm

agree wont happen

xstiteher, Jul 4, 9:36 pm

Third agree won't happen

nicsta4, Jul 4, 9:52 pm

this is what we want - a lot of people thinking it wont happen - then its a given that it will happen

bergkamp, Jul 4, 9:55 pm

snow ahoy!

It would be nice for the kids school holidays. We are on our last at the tail end of highschool. And the husky cross dog is on her last legs (lymphoma, although in remission after chemo) and she loves the snow. Bring it on. (dusts off snow boots).

brightlights60, Jul 5, 12:19 am

The met boys say its a long way out til then so could change

craftylady1, Jul 5, 6:25 am

Saturday has now gone from 'snowy' to 'fine with light winds'.

puddles11, Jul 5, 2:57 pm

It may not happen overnight but it will happen.

richynuts, Jul 5, 3:02 pm

Hope not got grand kids arriving and need to take them back home Wednesday

harrislucinda, Jul 5, 7:13 pm

I am so fed up with these reports of snow, polar blasts and hype, and what do we get . just a 'normal' winter storm. And thats exactly what will happen next week as well, I think this is the fourth or fifth time this year, and its only the start of July

stillwaters, Jul 5, 8:49 pm

It only snows when it has NOT been predicted (guessed) by the weather forecasters.

And when the weatherman predicts snow, it never eventuates.

Bring back Jim Hickey and Toni Marsh, because they were never wrong!

Well the forcast is looking good for snow here in Chch Tues, Wed and Thursday.

brightlights60, Jul 6, 3:55 pm

Which forecast? All I see is "few sleety showers" for Tuesday through to Thursday.

puddles11, Jul 6, 3:59 pm

No mention of snow. As #20 said. sleety showers

craftylady1, Jul 6, 4:21 pm

1 meter of snow for you.

mephismeltdown, Jul 6, 4:52 pm

craftylady1, Jul 6, 6:06 pm

Cool, now its "official" its bound to snow.

brightlights60, Jul 6, 10:47 pm


craftylady1, Jul 8, 1:33 pm


stillwaters, Jul 8, 2:51 pm

Met service saying snow. yipee!

bergkamp, Jul 8, 4:54 pm

Wont snow

bosch2006, Jul 8, 5:04 pm

yeah i know , but its a nice thought

bergkamp, Jul 8, 5:16 pm

It bloody isn't!

samanya, Jul 8, 5:55 pm

So, we shall see in the morning!

brightlights60, Jul 8, 10:48 pm

I think it will snow. it's meant to lower around 2am

nzmasta, Jul 8, 11:23 pm

40min to go clear skies here. another met f up

bosch2006, Jul 9, 1:19 am

no snow here. But the cat just came running in flat tack coz she hates the cold

I wish they would distinguish between Canterbury and Chch. The city hardly ever gets snow beyond a few patches on the Hills that last until lunchtime! And the moment snow is mentioned, the entire city starts stockpiling bread and driving at 30kph regardless of the weather.

2bit, Jul 9, 7:36 am

There is a lot of hail on the vehicle bonnets, and the BBQ table. frozen solid!

craftylady1, Jul 9, 7:46 am

They do - the Christchurch forecast on is specifically for Christchurch City. Also, if snow is forecast for the Port Hills only, this is specified within their city forecast.

puddles11, Jul 9, 7:49 am

Its snowing again now, on the Port Hills - as forecast.

articferrit, Jul 9, 8:50 am

Well it wasn't -2 last night and it won't be -5 tonight. It's sunshine and wind, not a flake of snow.

2bit, Jul 9, 12:19 pm

Where does it say -5 for tonight? I don't see -5 until overnight Friday, which is likely due to the big high moving in after this S'ly.

lugee, Jul 9, 1:31 pm

Watch out Christchurch if this is heading North your in for it. After a not a bad day today it just hit us in Ashburton, howling wind and absolutely freezing cold, no snow as yet but the sky looks very dark & angry. Roll on Summer.

speights40, Jul 9, 3:51 pm

^^ Yes tonights the night for possible sleet and snow in chch. There is moisture from now until midday tomorrow

jon9, Jul 9, 3:54 pm

Had some heavy rain before.

Summer. stay away! Sorry speights

craftylady1, Jul 9, 3:56 pm

Its flippin cold enough for snow. That wind today. Blew all the birds off the feeding stations! A couple of wax eyes were hanging on like grim death to the sugar/water feeder but gave up after one blow dry too many.

brightlights60, Jul 9, 10:01 pm

Snowing in Swannanoa now

buzzy86, Jul 10, 1:31 am
