Wintry conditions expected to continue in the deep south

The persistent south-westerly flow will keep things very wintry over the deep south tonight and tomorrow.  Snow flurries are expected as low as 400 metres and gales are expected about the coastal regions.

Government forecaster MetService is advising that wintry showers are expected for much of Friday for Fiordland, Southland, Clutha and Dunedin with snow settling above 500 metres.  They also advise that extensive frosts are likely about inland areas.

If you have travel plans in these areas, be aware of the potential for icy roads.  Even down to 400 metres where snow is not expected to settle, visibility could still be a problem with the flurries that are expected.  However, at this time there are no Road Warnings in effect.

Wind chill is also a concern.  The cold air combined with the wind will mean the need to make sure you are dressed warmly.
