Snow has been forecast for two lower South Island alpine passes today.
Metservice has already warned of heavy rain and high winds for the Upper North Island, following a damaging storm which downed trees, damaged property and left thousands without power in Auckland earlier this month.
Late on Friday night the Government forecaster warned rain was expected to turn to snow on the Lindis Pass and the Crown Range Rd overnight.
In the Lindis Pass 2cm to 5cm of snow is expected near the summit from early to late this morning.
