The Daily Debrief- WEDNESDAY


The southerly slowly worked its way up the southern half of the mainland today but didn’t affect temperatures much at all, north of Dunedin.

Over the North Island, temperatures were on par for this time of year with Wanganui being the warmest city in the north.

Dannevirke and Palmerston North look like they will feel a bit of a chill tonight, with lows expected of around 5 degrees. Over the mainland, Alexandra and Queenstown will be quite damp with temperatures near freezing and a southerly will make it even more unpleasant.


Over the South Island, the southerly takes hold in most areas with Blenheim and Nelson in the low to mid teens but elsewhere, 9 to 12 degrees is generally what’s expected.

For those in the north and still enveloped by a milder northerly, temperatures will be about average for the beginning of spring.
