Cold in the south, mild in the north

Two separate lows are bringing two very different sets of weather conditions to the nation this evening.

In the South Island heavy snow is falling to fairly low levels as this weeks big storm fires one last shot – in the form of an icy south easterly.

Meanwhile in the North Island a new sub-tropical low, much weaker than this weeks storm, slowly drifts north of Northland.

Today’s highest temperature was recorded in Auckland with 18 under mostly cloudy skies.

Today’s lowest maximum temperature was just 0.2 at Arthurs Pass in the South Island.

See a full list of today’s highs here.

What are conditions like where you are this evening?

Are you in the snow, the warmth, or somewhere in between?  Post a comment below!

Basiclly the coldest air isn’t quite making it far enough north.  Might get colder on Saturday afternoon though.

Raining in central Chch and about 4C. Port Hills should be getting some of the white stuff by now.

Very humid and warm tonight in the West of Auckland. Amazing cloud shapes/movement and colours as the sun set. Many flocks of birds flying north.
Dry at present,after showers early this afternoon. Very still at 5.36,guess the NE & NW winds have retired for the night.
Witnessed Auckland City council workers water blasting leaves off footpaths today adding to the wet. Have brooms become obsolete?
