A ridge of high pressure moving in on the back of an easing southerly airflow brings cold overnight temperatures to the far south of the South Island tonight. Southland and inland Otago sees temperatures dip down to between 0 and -2 degrees. Looking chilly further north for most of the country but wind / cloud and showers should keep frosts away.
The lower South Island and the West Coast has great weather tomorrow as can be seen in the temperature map below. They won’t be the warmest spots but the combination of light winds and sunny skies will make these areas the place to be. Northland sees tomorrow’s warmest high on 19 degrees meanwhile somewhere between Christchurch and Gisborne in the east gets the coldest temperatures only reaching between 9 and 12 degrees.
