Another blast of snow and cold is on the way, but it doesn’t look as intense as last week.
Christchurch could end up with sleety snow showers down to 300m tomorrow afternoon…lasting into tomorrow night.
By Tuesday morning, snow levels may drop to 200m on the peninsula. The precipitation is expected to ease by evening. Highs on Tuesday are expected to be around 6.
Gale force winds are possible about the eastern regions of Southland and Otago. A few flakes of snow are also possible late Monday into Tuesday. Accumulations aren’t likely, but the wind could combine with the snow to reduce visibility and make driving hazardous.
Light rain or snow is also possible about the West Coast and Nelson tomorrow as the colder air moves in. Highs in Nelson tomorrow are expected to be in the mid teens. On Tuesday, they probably won’t clear 10.
