The NZ Election is tomorrow and the weather couldn’t be better for getting out and voting.

After a rough week that brought the heaviest November snowfall to Southland in 3 decades and hail storms to a number of regions conditions will significantly improve throughout today and into Saturday morning.

Philip Duncan, head weather analyst at, says a large high means a cold start followed by a sunny day.  “All that Antarctic air brought up by Wednesday’s storm will produce light frosts across much of the South Island and inland in the North Island.  Once that hot November sun rises conditions will warm up nicely and with little wind it may even feel hot out in the sun”.

Mr Duncan says a few scrappy clouds could cool things down a little in coastal areas, especially around northern and eastern parts of the North Island with just a “tiny risk” of an isolated shower or two from Napier to Wairoa and maybe Gisborne.

“It’ll be the perfect weather to get out and there and vote”.
