Chilly weather is in store for much of the country as a cold front sweeps over much of New Zealand from late Sunday and into Monday.
MetService says, "this front is forecast to deliver a cold and showery south to southwest flow across New Zealand, with snow lowering to 200 to 300 metres over the South Island, and possibly 500 to 600 metres across the lower North Island."
But New Zealanders should expect a fine Saturday with the exception being the northern tip and the east coast of the North Island.
With Auckland getting to 20 degrees and most places in the South Island getting to 15-16 degrees.
MetService says late Tuesday, another front is forecast to approach the far south of New Zealand, and the west to southwest flow ahead of this front should strengthen.
