A cold night is again on the way as mostly clear skies remain over the nation.   Frosts are predicted to develop overnight from Waikato southwards excluding Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and exposed parts of Bay of Plenty thanks to a sou’east breeze continuing.

In the South Island frosts are expected to develop before midnight in some sheltered areas with overnight lows in most centres dropping to around -1 or -2.  Further inland severe frosts are expected in places like Central Otago and the McKenzie basic where temperatures may plummet in to the late negative single digits.

After a cold start tomorrow Sunday is also looking sunny with skies clearing around Gisborne and Hawkes Bay.  Warmer weather is expected to slowly creep in over the first few days of next week.
