Our weather forecast for the next few days….the poor little feathers out there…if iv’e been missing for part of the day… well it has been hectic getting enough food out there for these hungry little ones…there were double the number of birds in the garden today in the freeeeeeezing cold…They know where to come for food when the snow begin to fall….

For the first time in memory for many people snow is being forecast to sea level across a number of North Island and South Island centres, including three of the biggest cities.
POLAR OUTBREAK AFFECTING MOST OF NEW ZEALAND TONIGHT AND DURING
MONDAY.. An extremely cold southerly outbreak has already brought snow to most of the South Island and southern and central parts of the North
Island. Snow is forecast to continue tonight and during Monday, with significant accumulations possible in many places. Further heavy snow
is likely on Tuesday. The heavy snow is likely to cause major disruptions to travel and make driving conditions very difficult. In addition to this, the
weight of accumulated snow on structures such as powerlines and on trees could cause damage. Strong southerlies, with cold temperatures will make the wind feel bitterly cold and create blizzard like conditions in some places. Farmers are advised that stock may need shelter, particularly in view of the severity and duration of this event.
