COVID-19 Level 2 Restrictions
Covid-19 Alert Level 2 commenced at 2359 hours on Wednesday 13th May and continues until further notice! Under this level, tracks, huts, campgrounds & visitor centres can be used again. Huts must have no more than 10 persons - 50% of full capacity for larger huts occupying them (carry a tent to all huts so appropriate physical distancing can be maintained - 2m recommended). Visitors will need to carry their own cleaning equipment, and are highly encouraged to fill out hut books for contact tracing purposes! Hunting will be permitted again on conservation land.

6 Day Weather Forecast - Arthur's Pass (730m A.S.L.)

The following 6 day forecast has been created using data obtained from Weather Underground for the Arthur's Pass area (elevation 730m A.S.L.), utilising regional and local weather station data. It is updated hourly. 1800m weather data is derived from local weather modelling software and may be unreliable.

Notes: This page is experimental and it may be unreliable beyond a few days. Compare it with the MetService - 3 Day Forecast, and NZ METVUW SI CHARTS to get a more informed idea! Occasionally the forecast texts may show in imperial unit format as the metric forecast is not available from Weather Underground. - Graeme -
