Looks like it's time to get out the winter woollies. It's going to be a wet week, with a couple of heavy downpours possible today and tonight in Fiordland. We could even see snow in Southland, down to 500 metres tomorrow and as low as 300 metres on Tuesday. ... See MoreSee Less

Its not just the rough weather that causes issues. A lot of Southlanders and visitors to Southland had flight plans disrupted over the weekend by low cloud and fog.. On Friday night people returning from around the country were affected and had to stay put or worse circle Invercargill before being sent to another airport. Same issue Saturday morning with fog causing delays. While it can be frustrating we need to be mindful that running a safe air service has its challenges. ... See MoreSee Less
