Cold snap – Monday’s #WeatherRisks

Monday is the shortest day of the year, and it’s looking to be a cold one – as we are set to receive a shot of cold antarctic air from the polar region of the planet.

Along with this, the potential for snow at low levels increases – check out our detailed snow forecast here – as well as severe frosts in many parts of the inland South Island – as we’re seeing sub zero temperatures in many places as of 6:30am.

Some temperatures around the country are as follows:

  • Gore: 0.6C (Feels like -2C)
  • Wanaka: 0.2C (Feels like -2C)
  • Alexandra: 1.6C (Feels like -1C)
  • Blenheim: -2.2C (Feels like -4C!)
  • Nelson 4.3C (Feels like 0C)

No matter where you live in New Zealand, temperatures will drop on Monday or Tuesday, though the potential for heavy snow is not as marked as we saw last week. 

It may well be sunny for many areas too – especially if you have ranges/mountains to the south.
