Weather Video: Winter's brief visit

A short sharp wintry snap is hitting parts of New Zealand across Monday and Tuesday with snow to low levels, strong winds and a drop in temperatures nationwide.

However it is short lived – with a warmer change arriving towards this weekend.

Some rain or showers also on the way for all four drought regions.
