Two thirds of the country had another warm, late summer day however a southerly swept up the east coast of the Mainland and shaved a few degrees off the highs.
There hasn’t been a lot of rain with the change but the wind could be described as refreshing or invigorating.
The North Island saw temperatures remain in the twenties everywhere although tomorrow could see them down a digit or two in eastern parts.
The chance of cloud build ups in isolated areas is still in the forecast this evening and a heavy shower or two with a rumble of thunder is also a possibility.
Taking a look at who was hot and was not… well today the highest temperature went to three centres with Christchurch, Culverden and Gisborne on 29 degrees and the low was in Invercargill with a crisp 16 degrees as cooler air pushed in from the south along with some moisture.
The North Island should see lows mainly in the low to mid teens overnight tonight and Mainlanders should notice a cooler night with a couple of degrees below normal across southern and eastern regions.
