A snowy and frosty start – The Big Picture on Wednesday

We’re seeing the first real snowy conditions of the year in some places this week, as temperatures fall, as well as some of the first real heavy frosts for many – summer is well and truly in the rear view mirror now!

Southeasterly winds blow across much of the North Island, along with showers in the east – while it stays mainly dry out west, with sunny spells prevailing – although a shower or two isn’t off the cards.
Auckland and Northland both see a few showers, and while these should clear Auckland later in the day, northern parts of Auckland and Northland could see a chance of some rain, especially in the east, overnight.

The South Island is mainly sunny too, although some can expect morning showers – and snow flurries down to 500m – for Mid and North Canterbury, then clearing away.
There are heavy frosts to start for inner parts of the South Island too, especially South Canterbury & Otago.
Cloudy areas about Southland however, with the odd shower possible.
