Abstract: 

In August snow fell to low levels in northern Hawkes Bay resulting in heavy stock losses on at least one farm in the Wairoa area. The snow fell below the level predicted by MetService, which was repeatedly criticised in the media for its failure. However, strong winds and low temperatures had been forecast, and other farmers in the area took precautions.
