Winter visit to invercargill

We will be visiting Invercargill and Southland in July/August 07. We are expecting cold weather and short days (we are from Scotland so that is not a big deal).

Will driving around in a campervan pose any problems with regard to floods, blizzards, freezing nights or places to park up?

Just a moment while I go and get my crystal ball...... :)

It's possible but highly improbable especially the floods & blizzards. You can expect freezing nights though- rather you than me, bring plenty of thermals. Southland has just had (in fact still has) a very cold polar blast with windchill at -10 and lower, snow blanketing the ground and roads closed or chains required. Power out to many homes all weekend. You won't want to be in a campervan in those conditions beleive you me!
