A slow moving and weakening front continues the slow trek northwards this afternoon, leaving cooler air in its wake.
Many main centres in the South Island kicked off the afternoon between just 10 and 13 degrees, apart from Nelson and Marlborough which were closer to 20 degrees.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says the front is weakening as it heads northwards and will break up significantly before reaching Auckland, bringing only showers at the end of the week.
Gusty winds remain in Wellington but it’s warm, with even warmer conditions further north.
The front will get the death squeeze put on it as a new high develops near Southland on Thursday and another high remains centred near Northland.
