5% chance of a couple of inches to sea level . but things can change fast with these events

Metservice is only forecasting sleet showers for Christchurch in the weekend, so at this stage it just looks set to be a repeat of what we got last week.

3rd or 4th time lucky? The moment we get complacent, bam. Always pays to be prepared. Just waiting the delivery of our first big gas bottles for the new hot water system, yay!

Wont happen

Forecast has changed , snow's canceled but this could change again

golfaholic2, Jul 18, 8:20 am

The Port Hills will see a few flakes, and the rest of use will be disappointed. As per usual.

Move to Canada if you want snow that bad

lugee, Jul 18, 10:52 am

I've come from Canada! Over there the forecasters tell the truth!

2bit, Jul 18, 10:59 am

I wont be disappointed if there is no snow. Would be stuck indoors if it snows, as the snow would become a hazard for me

craftylady1, Jul 18, 10:59 am

You think the forecasters lie . seriously nobody could be so stupid as to actually think that.

probably meant as a bit tongue in cheek.

treecave, Jul 18, 12:37 pm

They do here too. I've not seen a forecast this year so far that actually said Christchurch WOULD get snow. The only times I've seen them say Christchurch WOULD get snow is twice in 2011 and once in 2012, and guess what? Christchurch DID get snow, and a significant amount in all three cases.

And it's not hard for it to seem like they're always right in Canada when it actually does snow in most cities dozens of days a year.

No worries it won't be much.
We put snow straps on after the couple of big dumps a few years back.
Had no snow since.
Dam they are working well

I understand that NZ is in quite a volatile place and at the mercy of many elements. Suspect it would be quite a challenge for all meteorologists to get it right all the time. It's future forecasting, so they don't have a crystal ball. Personally I think they do a pretty good job myself.

Like i said.

bosch2006, Jul 20, 10:32 am

That means precisely f@#$ all.

2bit, Jul 20, 10:49 am

Why do people want snow? I think MOSTwant a day or 2 off work and thats about it.

tool_shop173, Jul 20, 11:23 am

no. its just the novelty I think.
