It’s a much colder day across Canterbury, but also Southland, Otago, Marlborough, Wellington and Wairarapa as a southerly from the Southern Ocean sweeps through, replacing yesterday’s hot nor’wester.
Showers fade today – as do the cold southerlies. A colder night is on the way for some sheltered southern areas, but a high is rolling back by Saturday bringing warmer, settled, weather to many regions.
Here are the regional forecasts for FRIDAY…
Northland, Auckland, Waikato & Bay Of Plenty
A mix of sun and cloud. Chance of a morning shower or two but mainly dry.
Highs: 23 to 26
