Hail, thunder and snow coming for Wairarapa
MetService has issued a road snow warning for the Rimutaka Hill Rd.
From this afternoon, snow could settle to up to 1cm on the State Highway 2 road, between Wairarapa and Upper Hutt, MetService meteorologist Peter Little said.
Wellingtonians may be able to look east tomorrow morning and see a dusting of snow on the ranges.
Meanwhile, a severe thunder storm watch for Wairarapa had been lifted.However, both Wellington and Wairarapa were getting some hail and rain today.
Hail big enough to damage vehicles and crops is heading across Cook Strait towards Wairarapa.
Earlier today MetService issued a severe thunder storm watch for Wairarapa.
Meteorologist Peter Little said that while Wellington could get some heavy showers, it will likely miss out on the thunder and hail.
A northwest flow was meeting a cold, unstable southerly flow off the North Island south coast.
They were converging and ''thunder storms have popped up''.
The southerly flow would win and push the weather north.
