A cold southwesterly airflow lies over the country, which will bring a cool change to most places – and more serious risks for parts of the South Island.
Hail and snow are possible down to 400 or 300m in the eastern part of the South Island and along the ranges, and some of that hail could fall as low as sea level overnight too – but the weather won’t be sustained or long lasting.
