Temperatures up and down New Zealand have taken a plunge this week in line with an all-encompassing strong southerly flow. The flow is also delivering heavy, disruptive snow to levels as low as 300 m (984 ft).
Substantial low-level snow had already blanketed the Southland region of New Zealand as of Wednesday morning, and there’s more in store for the South Island and the Central-North Island as the evening draws in.
MetService has warned that heavy snow will accumulate from mid-afternoon Wednesday to 600m in the Taihape area and down to 300m on Wednesday evening about Banks Peninsula. Additional snow to 300m in Southland and Otago is also expected.
Strong, cold southerly winds are succeeding in holding the mercury well-below average across the country.
“It’s to do with the origin of the air,” explains MetService meteorologist Angus Hines. “We have that almost due southerly flow across the country.”
The New Zealand Transport Agency is encouraging motorists to keep a close eye on weather conditions and road updates before venturing out.
Even NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
