Supercomputer Weather: NZ's Big Chill To Linger

How cold is it going to stay? Do I need to buy more coal or a new heater? Will there be more snow? These are questions of the moment that require answers, and fortunately NOAA’s supercomputer is here to provide some.

Below are maps, and links to weather maps, showing the present view of the NOAA Medium Range Forecast supercomputer model of the next 12 days. This shows the prognosis for the big chill over the next 12 days.

You may care to follow the links below to see what is in store for your area, and when, but in general the pattern shown in the forecast is fairly clear.

While the rain and showers appear to now be at an end for most of the country (the far North is due to get a few more downpours but), the big chill is far from past.

According to NOAA temperatures above 13 degrees are confined to Northland for at least the next week, so it may well be time to buy a pair of long-johns if you haven’t already got some.

On a more positive note the lingering cold temperatures are accompanied by the arrival of a high pressure system which most probably means hard frosts, and glorious clear winter skies of the kind that Canterbury is famous for.

At the end of the forecast period on June 9th temperatures finally climb a little, and then the rain returns.
