Weather Expectations

We'll take a walking tour to Fox Glacier in late May. My wife has to deal with asthma.

What can we reasonably expect for weather at Fox in late May? I realize that nobody can say with much precision what it'll be, but a knowledgeable generalization would help ;-)

THANKS

May is generaly great weather, still warm but it is the end of the summer, and at sometime a southerly will come through in May and it fails to get warm staright away. To me it is then the beginning of winter.. however, Winter is at times the best time of the year to visit the Glaciers, and unlike other glaciers around the world, even in winter you do not need to walk through snow to get to them. the access to Fox is via step beside the glacier and shelterd by the over hanging temperate rain forrest. then when above the terminal face, you step out onto the glacier. The fresh air of the mountains should be very good for your wife and hopefully not pose to great a difficulty in enjoying one of natures gems
