3 News iWitness Coral Butler snapped this shot of the snowfall at Aoraki Mt Cook Village.
The lower South Island survived an overnight weather battering without any reported damage, but residents are being warned it isn’t over yet.
As the low moves away from the southeast of the South Island a chilly southwest flow will spread across the country, according to Metservice.
Weatherwatch predicted severe gales, heavy rain and thunderstorms around Stewart Island and "some of the biggest seas on the planet around New Zealand" on Tuesday.
A statement says snow is expected in the lower South Island with the possibility of tornadoes in southwestern areas.
How’s the weather where you are? We’d love to see your photos and video!
Another 3 News iWitness, Adonia Wilson, submitted video of Karl Hagar sledding through the snow fall.
