A touch of frost – #WeatherRisks and your main centre outlook

A ridge of high pressure, coming in from a large anticyclone in the Tasman Sea is creating clear, calm and cool conditions around the country this morning – meaning a reasonable day for pretty much everyone in the middle two-thirds of New Zealand.

There’s a touch of light frost both morning and night, anywhere from Waikato southwards, and mainly about sheltered and inland areas.

Other than that, it’s looking risk-free for most of the country.
