A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres is expected.

A second low pressure centre in as many days will give more snow to the South Coast beginning this afternoon and continuing into Tuesday morning. It is expected to spread snow to virtually the entire South Coast with heaviest amounts falling tonight. Total snowfall amounts will vary across the region.
