Temperatures currently sit below 0 in some inland, sheltered parts of the South Island – Queenstown and Alexandra among them.
The risk of frosts isn’t high or severe, however – and by the time most will be reading this, it should have mostly dissipated.
Looking mostly sunny, with south to southeasterly breezes, and a high in the late teens.
Cooler in the capital, after morning cloud breaks to leave mostly sunny but cool weather – highs in the early teens only, as breezy southwesterlies blow too.
Looking sunny here too, with light winds in the morning, and afternoon east to northeast winds – with a high around the mid teens.
