Bone-chilling cold in New Zealand

Iowa Climate Science Education

A surge of cold polar air dropped temperatures over Saturday night and Sunday morning well below freezing.

“Had enough of the cold?” MetService asked on Twitter. “Last night Twizel got to -5.7C (21.7F), Timaru -3.7C (25.3F) and Queenstown -2.4C (27.7F).”

The cold snap was caused by the winds which wrought destruction across New Zealand earlier this week dying down and being replaced by high pressure from the polar region.
