Cloudy for much of New Zealand

It’s a fairly cloudy day across New Zealand with few sunny areas about, mainly there is some sun in the west of the North Island and parts of North Westland and Buller in the South Island. And as the afternoon moves on sunny breaks will develop about Southland and Central Otago. Temperatures are warmer in the west also which makes sense, the likes of New Plymouth and Hokitika are sitting around 16 degrees, Auckland is close on 15.5 degrees.

Winds are fairly cool in the east of both Islands today, Kaikoura feeling it the most on 5.9 degrees at the moment with 37 km/h southerlies. Shower activity is mostly about the upper South Island, east coast of the North Island and parts of Northland, also inland Canterbury however is petering out there.

Where cloudy areas break tonight in the South Island frosts are likely to develop, Southland and Otago being the main candidates but parts of Canterbury also could be in store for them. Frost won’t be harsh though.
