Cold change rushes over Southland, now Dunedin/Otago, Canterbury tonight (+Videos)

Updated 5:35pm — The cold change is heading northwards. Southland dropped several degrees in a hour this afternoon as the cold front (the first in a few over the next couple of days – each getting colder) moved in.

As of 5pm the cold front was crossing over Dunedin with some suburbs down to 7 degrees.

Clouds were dramatic as they approached.

Our thanks to our Twitter followers for the below videos over the past hour or so…


Thursday PM’s cold change will see snow on the ranges, down to 300 or 400m in the South Island – however it will be short lived.  

Friday is a colder day but the truly cold Antarctic blast arrives later on Friday and across Saturday – we’ll have further special updates over the next 48 hours.
