A blustery Sunday is in store for many New Zealanders but expect a return to more normal temperatures for this time of year, MetService says.

With mountain ranges sprinkled with the year's first snow dumps, intrepid surfers will be seeking big, rolling swells created by the southwesterly winds which caused havoc across the country on Friday, toppling an oak tree which fatally crushed an elderly Cambridge woman.

Christchurch locals woke to frosty temperatures this morning with MetService's airport station recording -0.8C. In the North Island, Masterton locals were feeling the cold too at 2C.

NIWA's emojicast for Sunday shows that weather patterns are shaping back to normal for most of the country after the cold snap.

A strong west-to-southwest flow is blowing right through the weekend, bringing showers across the west and into Auckland, MetService forecaster Gerard Bellam says.

A high wind warning is in place for Otago's Clutha district but other squally zones could include the top of the South Island, and east of the North Island from Coromandel down to Hawke's Bay.

But the winds will ease as Kiwis start heading back to work for the week, Bellam said.

Canterbury will have a cold start but will enjoy another bright late-spring burst before a "classic" southerly change, bringing "some quite beefy showers" spreading up the eastern seaboard in the afternoon, and even possibly some hail and thunderstorms.

With southern ski fields enjoying their first dustings, there are road snow warnings today for the Crown Range road and the Milford road.
