Reports are coming in of snow falling to low levels over parts of the Canterbury Plains this morning.
Snow is falling in Darfield and Methven and also over parts of Banks Peninsula. Alpine passes in the south have also seen snow settle in.
A small tornado and lightning has apparently damaged two buildings on the West Coast town of Hector according to Facebook reader Roger Harper. It occurred about 1am this morning.
As more information comes to hand we’ll bring it to you at WeatherWatch.
