Cold blast to herald beginning of winter

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:25 pm on 8 June 2020

Yes it's winter and the weather is expected to be colder - but a cold snap is headed our way that could see temperatures as low as -15. 

The chill is expected this coming weekend, when one of the strongest areas of high pressure on the planet will move over the country. 

But - despite the cold, the system is not expected to bring much needed rain to dry parts of the country. 

NIWA meterologist Ben Noll joins Karyn to explain.
