A return to morning frost – #WeatherRisks on Monday

It’s looking cold and clear to start for most of the South Island, while there’s snow flurries in the forecast for places along the east coast of both islands.

Mid and North Canterbury, along with southern Marlborough look like escaping the worst of the cold, though as of 6am, Blenheim, Nelson, Queenstown, Gore and Alexandra were all in the negatives – so it’s been a chilly start!
Frosts may well be serious in Southland, Otago and inland parts of the West Coast – if your place is icy cold this morning, let us know!

There’s a chance of snow flurries for various regions – parts of the Eastern North Island look like getting it the most, but also at risk are Wellington and Canterbury.
It’s not looking like heavy falls of snow by any means, though slightly heavier flurries in the Eastern North Island could affect the higher roads or passes.

There’s the chance of some small hail with any showers also, particularly in the northern part of the North Island (as we saw yesterday).
