Icy start to the day after snow, hail, and Antarctic blast

From Midday Report, 12:17 pm on 6 September 2022

It's been an icy morning in the South - after rain, hail, snow and frosty temperatures turned Southern roads into ice sheets this morning.

Temperatures dropped rapidly yesterday as a blast of Antarctic air swept northwards.

This morning, the Lake Tekapo weather station recorded minus 7.1 degrees celsius.

And snow has even been falling in some of Wellington's hill suburbs this morning.

RNZ's Dunedin reporter Tim Brown was on the scene and spoke to Māni Dunlop.
