A cold southerly quarter airflow lies over New Zealand today, eastern regions will be most exposed to this airflow bringing in the coldest day time highs. Western regions are a touch warmer, this is especially true for the West Coast of the South Island. The warmest temperatures today will be about Northland reaching up towards 15 to 16 degrees, the coldest about Southland and Otago between 7 to 9 degrees.
Wednesday brings in even colder southwesterlies.
Colder than average overnight lows about the upper northwest of the South Island and most of the North Island tonight, this is mainly due to slightly clearer skies than elsewhere.
