The outlook for Gisborne’s A&P Show suggests fickle spring is still in charge . . . and there could even be snow on the southern hills.

The present good weather is expected to deteriorate as an active front moves in, bringing a strong cool southerly towards Friday evening.

MetService says the cold snap brings the possibility of snow above 600 metres in the high country of Hawke’s Bay and Wairoa.

Saturday is expected to be cold and wet, with strong southerlies and a miserable daytime high of only 12 degrees.

Despite the forecast, show organisers are full steam ahead erecting tents and sideshows ready for the crowds.

The sheep dog trial competition began and tomorrow that continues with equestrian events as well.

Friday and Saturday are the two big days of the show.
