Hands up who thought last night and this morning were a bit cold? Social media is buzzing this morning with people surprised at the sudden cold snap across many parts of New Zealand.
As you can see from the 8:25am nationwide temperature map – it’s a colder morning this morning, with the blue shading indicating single digit temperatures.
But while it may be a crisp start, it’s already warmer as of 8:25am than at the warmest part of yesterday for some places. Wellington, for example, was on 7 to 9 degrees yesterday afternoon – right now it’s 8 to 10 degrees with the mercury rising.
Thursday will warm up – but tonight may be cold with a few frosts in some sheltered places. But the cold is short lived – warmer weather returns over the next day or two.
