Cold southwesterlies on the way

Overnight tonight and during tomorrow cold southwesterlies will spread over the country and temperatures will fall, this in stark contrast to today’s high temperatures especially in eastern regions of both Islands. The high today being in Wairoa, northern Hawkes Bay with 28 degrees.

To start however the eastern North Island will have some mild weather before southwesterlies freshen in the afternoon, Gisborne may cling on to warm temperatures till evening when the cold southwesterlies finally move in there.

This cold front will deliver some snow to the ranges in the South Island tomorrow down to 500 perhaps 400 metres from Canterbury southwards, some snow in the ranges of Marlborough also to 600m later in the day however only for a brief time.

Anyone managing to get out and light fireworks in the evening tomorrow will likely require a warm jersey and a rain jacket wouldn’t go a miss either.
