Lol, why ‘Southland’ like? Any central areas of NZ can have temps like that quite often or even worse!!

Because at a latitude of 46 degrees south Southland is only slightly less nearer to Antarctica than Tierra del Fuego. Hence to the rest of NZers it is an icebox.

Oh dear – yet other places further north tend to have harder frosts. Can’t change an ‘ingrained’ perception I guess.
