3am — We may be just a couple of weeks away from December but right now you might feel like it’s winter, after a spring southerly moves through and an anticyclone sets in. Auckland has temperatures down to 3 degrees, with light frosts developing through some inland areas of the North Island.
While many vineyards should remain above frost level – at least at vine heights – some areas will be far too close for comfort, especially around Marlborough.
Temperatures may drop another 1 to 1.5 degrees before sunrise for some areas. Winds are going to build in the South Island this morning, pushing temperatures up slowly.
Here are the 3am temperature maps:
