A subtropical northeasterly airflow keeps temperatures above freezing for all of New Zealand tonight, this combined with a front pushing into western regions makes sure it doesn’t get to cold.
Certainly warmer than average for the South Island on Wednesday as the airflow tends more north to northwest, a touch warmer than average for the North Island with winds remaining from the northeast but gradually tending northwest about the far north from afternoon.
The warmest temperatures tomorrow go to the east coast of the South Island, highs of 16 to 17 degrees are likely but in some spots it may even touch 18 to 19 for Canterbury just inland away from the coast. Northland also hits 18 degrees.
The coldest day time highs go to the Central North Island and Fiordland on 12 to 13 degrees.
