The recent mild weather will be relegated to the back seat from tomorrow when parts of the South Island are forecast to be affected by a wintery blast to wind up the final days of August.
MetService media and communications meteorologist Daniel Corbett said the weather later this week will be significantly colder than it has been for a while.
“At this early stage, it is possible that snow will fall to reasonably low levels over the south and east of the South Island later tomorrow,” he said.
“This could cause a significant issue for farmers with young livestock and for people wanting to use some of the higher mountain roads.
“Farmers should monitor stock closely, particularly newborn lambs and calves.”
