Let it snow! The 26 best photos sent in during the Antarctic blast


Filed in:

Wind chills below zero, strong southerlies - it was a wintry Saturday over New Zealand.

For the most part this system is fairly dry and we don't expect a lot of snow around the country - but certainly most ranges will get a dusting and for those in Southland and Otago in particular expect more snow flurries off and on across Saturday, then into the Central North Island. 

Below are photos sent in to our Twitter and Facebook pages across Saturday.

Stay warm!
