Video: Phil Duncan with the latest on the storm

Filed in:

Heavy snow is now falling through central parts of the South Island and the snow level will continue to fall over the next 24 hours, with snow – possibly heavy – falling to sea level across the South Island’s southern and eastern coastlines. We have the latest on the North Island too, where heavy showers are now pushing into western and central areas – and gales, hail and thunder are also in the forecast.

Watching the depression

Watching the depression rapidly develop just south of Wellington is like watching a slow motion train crash. There's going to be one hell of a southerly push at go home time. Spot the row of thunder/hail storms. Almost worth a storm warning? An severe weather warning may not cover the 5-7pm time.

I think you';ll get some snow overnight or tomorrow - but probably not a major dumping.  Hard to tell how much you;ll get but a high chance of something, even if just a few snow flakes.  Let us know what happens!
