Today could be one of those days where, before you take the step outside, you might want to think twice and think, 'it's gonna be cold.'
By Wednesday, eight degrees, so it'll be like, 'where's the warm coat?' You'll be grabbing it.
Dan was on the telly talking about the expected wintry blast:
Mother Nature is breathing her ugly breath and it's coming up slowly, her ugly breath up the far south of the South Island.

Dan was on Morning Report:
The ground is fairly warm, it's like trying to put snow on an oven, what happens? It melts.
Mother Nature is funny. You always look at her, think of her, she's like the fat lady in the circus because the show's not over until she sings.
Daffodils are blooming, does this mean spring has sprung in NZ?
Wednesday will be the coldest morning but Thursday is not looking like a cup of tea either.
Also, a strong contender for Dan-ism of the year:
Mr Corbett hesitated to say how summer was likely to shape up.
"So many factors affect it. It's like someone mixing a wedding cake and you think it's going to turn out beautifully but all you get is three cupcakes on a plate. Water temperature is what affects our weather, that's what makes the final ingredient to the recipe for summer."
