We’ve seen 15cm of fresh snow hit the ground this morning after moderate snow yesterday and light to moderate winds. Currently we’re seeing fairly light winds with mostly sunny conditions and a chance of some light snow into this evening. Tops of -1C throughout the day, and then the temps should raise to 1C this evening getting ready for a warm one tomorrow.

We’ve got a bit of a wild week ahead, tomorrow we’re not only set to get some heavy rain down the bottom, there’s some heavy snow and some extreme winds. I thought about whether “extreme” was the right word, and yes, with winds that are set to reach 110km/h at the top, I’d say extreme is a great term.

The upside for the winds is that we’re probably going to see about 30cm from tomorrow into Saturday. So there’s that to look forward to…

Thursday: heavy rain/heavy snow, extreme winds, tops of 4C
Friday: light snow, strong winds, tops of -5C
Saturday: mostly sunny, calm winds & tops of 3C
