The focus appears to be over the South Island this morning with a cool southerly change spreading north along eastern districts and it’s set to reach Christchurch around lunchtime.
The amount of rain or showers are questionable as it appears to be running a little out of steam as it heads northwards but the temperatures will certainly drop as it inches its way forward.
The far south saw it move in overnight and the wind made it feel cold and although a clearance is expected there throughout the day the mercury isn’t set to climb very high.
Lower and central parts of the North Island should see the southerly move through later today and also this evening but remaining dry in the west.
Gisborne is likely to see a mostly dry day as is the upper north with just the risk of a patchy shower in isolated areas.
