Cold snap marching northward

What can only be described as a “wintry cold snap” is moving up the country today and by tomorrow the entire country will be affected.

Temperatures will plummet to single digits and low double digits almost everywhere as the southerly moves northward.

Snow is likely in low levels of the South Island ranges this morning however snow falls shouldn’t be too heavy.  Motorists are advised to be prepared for snowy conditions however if heading inland.

The North Island will also be vulnerable to the cold snap with temperatures dropping by as much as 6 or 7 degrees on yesterday or today’s highs.

The southerly should reach Auckland by Sunday morning.

What are conditions like where you are right now?  Post a comment below.
