It is looking like a cold start, though, especially for much of the inner South Island – leading to a light frost or temperatures sitting around 0 or â€“1C.
The warmest weather will be in the afternoon, from Northland down through to Taranaki in a south to southeasterly airflow.
Cloudy to start with southerly breezes through the morning, but a break into sunny and fine conditions for the afternoon means temperatures rise too – into the mid 20s.
Sunny and clear through most of the day – some high cloud here and there – along with southeast breezes and a high in the late teens.
Southerly winds and a drizzly start clear up a bit towards the afternoon, though temperatures stay in the mid to late teens for most.
