Updated — There’s a huge contrast in morning temperatures across New Zealand today with over 20 degrees separating the north from the south as sub-tropical rain pushes down over northern regions and the cold air left over from last week’s southerly remains stuck over the south.
As of 9:30am there were still a string of -4 to -6C temperatures across Southland, Otago and parts of inland Canterbury, even -7C.
Meanwhile at the northern end of the country the sub-tropical airflow has places as high as +17C.

Might be crisp in the far south but sunny and dry for most of us.

It’s why we keep saying Southland is one of the three regions to be in this long weekend – sunniest, driest, calmest 🙂
