Friday starts of very cool in some places, as southerlies continue to roll in through the South Island – while the entire east coast of the country is exposed to that southerly change too.
Starts cloudy, with a morning shower or two – persistent and heavy in parts, before a dry and sunnier afternoon, along with a change to southwesterlies late on – and a high in the mid 20s.
Strong, cold southerly winds dominate in the capital, with a chance of a shower or two as well – and a high only in the mid teens.
Similar story in Christchurch, with cold, strong southerly winds setting in – and keeping temperatures in the early teens for the most part, along with the chance of a few showers here and there.
