Mountain Conditions
General Conditions:
Wednesday 19th February 2020, 20:44hrs: One fine day on the way tomorrow (Thursday); but we'll see... Friday brings heavy rain again. Basically back to summer climbing conditions, though quite surprisingly many glacial routes are staying intact with little glacial movement breaking them up (probably due to late Spring snowfalls, and a cold start to summer).

17/02/2020 07:30hrs: Crazy rain on Alps has reduced, got about 400mm on top of & west of Divide in past 48 hours. Still looks like a grotty, so-so, week ahead.

16/02/2020 17:30hrs: In the grip of the tentacles of the tropical low at the moment; thus far not as bad as forecast with rainfall only getting towards 100mm about the back of the Main Divide. Grotty weather and strong winds are like to remain with us until Wednesday.

06/02/2020 19:06hrs: Fine weather to develop from tonight about the Main Range, poorer weather on Saturday (rain / gales), then theoretically finer weather until Wednesday. Rivers on western side of Park are still honking along, whilst eastern tributary rivers are just crossable this afternoon; Waimak still at double normal flow, and should recover around Sunday.

04/02/2020 07:16hrs: Extremely severe weather conditions today; heavy rain accompanied by ridiculously strong winds at all levels. Storm starts to abate tomorrow, but galeforce high level winds may remain into later part of week.
