Warmer than average temperatures for the South Island tomorrow, this is especially true for inland areas and about the far south with highs 8 degrees above normal or potentially a touch more. Eastern coastal areas sit on about average due to onshore easterly quarter winds.
Temperatures sitting on average for many North Island regions especially in the east due to north to northeasterly winds. However in the west and about Waikato northwards expect warmer than average temperatures due to a slightly more favourable wind direction coming in from the northwest.
Tomorrow’s warmest highs will likely be about Central Otago and inland Southland getting up to 22 or 23 degrees. The coolest spot will likely be Christchurch on 15.
No need to worry about any frosts overnight Thursday, lows not looking to drop below double figures for any region.
Cool southwesterlies develop about Southland on Saturday afternoon then this change pushes northwards reaching Canterbury in the evening, expect a drop in temperatures with this change.
