Severe snow, wind and rain is expected to continue to batter parts of the country. MetService said a bitterly cold southwest flow was expected to spread over the lower South Island with snow lowering to near sea level later today.
Southlanders already dealing with the effects of the weekend's storm were being urged to prepare for more snow and rain over the next two days.
My choice for this week:
It's a cold, cold feeling
On a real lazy wind
That blows all the way trough you
And the autumn begins
How it cuts like a sabre
How it chills to the bone
You've got cold feet and fingers
And you're thinking of home
If I put my arms around you
Turn you in from the storm
From your autumn through winter
Darling I'll keep you warm
My overcoat's empty
Deep, wide and long
I got room for you darling
till your winter, till your winter has gone
These are archives, as we are having the best month of summer in the southern hemisphere.
It's almost March, start of spring, but before Spring truly comes winter lingers a bit longer. Show us (hopefully) the end of the winter season in your parts of the world.
