Residents of Christchurch, New Zealand, were met with an early spring flurry of snow on the morning of Tuesday, September 6.
This footage, filmed by Twitter user @just_here_to_re in Harewood, shows snow falling steadily in their garden.
According to the Met Service, the dramatic drop in temperatures was caused by a cold front travelling up from Antarctica.
The below-freezing weather was set to continue into Monday night, the service said. Credit: @Just_here_to_re via Storyful
