Here’s what is making the weather headlines today….
FROSTY START, COLD FRONT IN THE SOUTH
Some settled weather today, a frosty start for inland parts of both Islands. Temperatures this afternoon for the eastern South Island pop up into the mid teens. Most North Island regions apart from the Central Plateau will likely reach into the mid teens also.
A cold front moves into Southland early afternoon bringing rain, reaching into Otago late afternoon. Finally a few showers move into Canterbury later this evening but perhaps only for inland areas.
Snow about the far south to 600 / 500m, about the Lakes District this may be above 800m. Canterbury overnight may see a few light flurries for inland areas to 700m.
IT’S BEEN A LITTLE WINDY LATELY
And the good news is the weather coming up over the next seven days should be less windy than the last seven.
It’s not to say it will be calm by any stretch of the imagination, just a bit less windy overall. One way to determine if the weather is calming down is to take a look at our warnings page, as you’ll see it’s looking a bit quiet.
