It’s been a cold night in many areas overnight and temperatures today are likely to remain on the fresh side as a south to sou’ west flow continues to cover the country.
Showers across the east of the North Island look set to be the wettest part of the country but there’s also a chance one or two could pop up over isolated parts of New Zealand again later if the flow tends more southerly.
Conditions are expected to be sunny across the west of the South Island and it appears the far south will remain cold with cloud and showers easing about coastal areas and sunshine breaking through later.
Inland areas of the South Island tonight look cold to very cold with frosts expected in many areas and temperatures could dip below zero.
Winds should still blow in from the south for eastern districts but gradually ease back and tomorrow these should fade away however eastern parts of the North island might not be so lucky.
