A cold front is coming towards the South Island, due to make landfall late Wednesday.
It will be followed by a warmer system which will push temperatures up a bit on the weekend, although North Island ski fields should be in for a flurry on Friday and into Saturday.
Things will warm up for the South Island on Sunday however, so you can put the winter woolies away for another week.
