Just 6 degrees in a number of North & South Island centres

It’s been a bitterly cold day across the Waikato today.  At 11am it was still just 3 degrees and while it’s warmed up to 6 degrees this hour it’s now raining.

Hamilton’s 6 degrees matches Taupo and Waiouru this hour – the cold air in Waikato was caused by a freezing night then cloud cover first thing this morning, not allowing for any heating from the sun.

6 degrees is also being reported in Dunedin and Gore this hour with 7 in Queenstown, Kaikoura, Akaroa, Levin and Hawera.
