It’s not looking like major snowfall on the East Coast of the North Island, though brief flurries of heavy snow may fall in the morning right down to 500m, before easing in the afternoon.
Banks Peninsula may also see reasonable snow flurries to low levels at times, while there could be some reasonable snow about North Canterbury and into the Kaikoura mountains from evening and overnight to low levels (100 to 200m).
The same could apply to Banks Peninsula, although higher totals may be on the Peninsula’s southern coast.
Other parts of Canterbury may see 5 to 10cm of snow down to low levels later this afternoon and overnight.
South Canterbury largely dodges this bullet, however – with dry conditions and cold southwest winds.
