Frosts formed overnight and fog rolled in over parts of the far south as temperatures plummetted following a cold southerly airflow.
Conditions resembled an early winter and not the sort of weather pattern expected during the hottest month of the year traditionally.
Both Dunedin airport and Invercargill were one solitary degree earlier this morning and Gore didn’t fare much better with two degrees.
Blair Drysdale mentioned on twitter..”Good old Southland weather. Frost and fog in February.”
Temperatures and conditions are set to improve this morning with mostly sunny skies expected.
