Winter is being heralded with a southerly change today and some snow falls  through to end of Wednesday, then Frosts on Thursday morning.

We sent alerts to subscribers for all this on Monday.

There is another round of cold and snow inclusive weather system coming for Sunday by the looks and we will have initial notifications probably from Wednesday.

You can see on this imagery from Eathnullschool, the temperature is -67deg (green circle). this area is usually over the pole. The bumps of cold air extend to latitude 50 which is about where the red line is on the following map indicating colder air is advancing northwards and periodically closer to NZ from Antarctica.
