A cold one – The Big Picture on Tuesday

A cold southerly airflow remains over much of the country on Tuesday – bringing some snow and showers to many parts of New Zealand – as well as lowering temperatures.

Showers will spread over the east coasts of both islands, as well as both southern coastlines.
The west of the North Island looks wet too, with the weather clearing from the south later in the day.
The Bay Of Plenty may stay fairly dry, but a shower or two could sneak across from the west at times.

The West Coast of the South Island sees sunny areas increase from morning, while any early showers clear away.
Snow flurries affect the south of the South Island, as well as Canterbury and parts of the lower North Island.
The snowfall shouldn’t be overly serious or heavy – but flurries will pass over here and there, down to around 500-600m in the South Island and a little higher further north.

Beyond that, it looks like the first decent frosts of the year overnight for inland Southland, Central Otago and inland South Canterbury.
