The large low in the Tasman Sea continues to push across the country. That means another day of heavy showers, some with thunder, and strong gusty westerlies for the North Island and in the South Island a cold southerly change is moving in.
The North Island will face squally showers, mostly west of the main eastern ranges. Winds within these squalls maybe damaging in localised areas.
Eastern areas will continue to see the sunniest and driest weather however the incoming southerly today will change that.
Temperatures will drop following the cold front with snow falling to 300m tonight in Southland. Snow flurries may fall to lower levels in the early hours of Wednesday.
The colder change should reach Christchurch later in the day.
