Cold and snow are set to return to the South Island today. Although the snow isn’t looking quite as intense as last week, it could still cause a few travel problems. Snow showers will be likely down to around 200 metres for parts of higher coastal areas of Canterbury, Otago and Southland as the cold front moves through later today. The rest of the country is in for a mix of sun and clouds today with just a few light showers possible about Auckland.
