Snow has briefly fallen to low levels in the South Island as a cold southerly change heads north to mark September 1st.
The next couple of days will be cooler nationwide.
But later this week high pressure in the Tasman Sea will bring milder weather back in.

Here is a good question how could the Met Service forecast a high of 15 today in Christchurch in yet they predicted snow to 300 M currently 6 degree at 2.49 pm snow to 300m and 15 dosnt compute

It’s probably in reference to the pre frontal NW that occurred before the SW change moved through before dawn. It was 14 degrees at 2am so close, might have hit 15 elsewhere, not sure….
But yes it can seem a little confusing, depends what perspective you look at it. In terms of the day from 6am then yes it might seem a fair bit off.
