Another minus three morning in Christchurch, and another police warning about the slippery state of the roads.
South Comms Inspector Pete Hegarty is asking drivers to again be aware of the conditions.
"Christchurch and a lot of the South Island is much the same as yesterday, we still have a significant ice problem on roads so caution's needed throughout the region."
Inspector Hegarty says drivers should slow right down, and increase their following distances - something they did well yesterday, with just a few minor incidents.
But there's relief on the weather front in the South Island.
Cantabrians had snow of over a metre in places yesterday, with ice contributing to numerous road crashes.
There's another blast of cold air coming up from the south west.
MetService forecaster Madz Maeraa says there'll be snow down to three or four hundred metres later today in the far south.
"There could be the odd thunderstorm and hail with it, but not huge amounts of snow and as I said, nothing like the previous storm."
Mr Maeraa says Cantabrians will see much warmer temperatures and spring like weather.
He says the snow cover will start melting with the north westerly winds.
