It’s going to be a sunny, cool, Sunday across much of the country today as mostly clear skies and southerlies prevail.
There’s also good news for farmers across the dry east coast of the North Island with a deep low to the east pumping in rain across the region for most of the day.
Yesterday that low helped create a cold day across the upper North Island with places like Auckland reaching just 12 and spending much of the day around 10.
The low is deepening rapidly and could bring in big waves from East Cape to Wairarapa over the next few days.
Due to the depth of this low frosts are now unlikely across the North Island as southerly breezes or cloud cover keep air temperatures below freezing overnight for most. Frosts are still possible in the South Island depending on cloud cover.
Temperatures today will climb into the mid teens for sheltered areas in the north and west while eastern areas will be anywhere from 12 in the south to 14 in the north.
