LOW CLOUD & FOG TO START THURSDAY – MORE SUNSHINE DURING THE AFTERNOON.
Good evening. It’s been a mostly cloudy day across the region with occasional fine spells; more widespread and frequent this afternoon. We did see some rain in parts of the Kaikoura District with totals between 10-30mm, higher towards the foothills.
Christchurch took top honours with a modest high of 13.2 degrees while Mt Cook Village recorded just 6.5 degrees. Full list of the daily ‘highs’ below.
This evening low cloud will become more widespread once again with fog ‘pockets’ overnight; more likely about our inland basins and low lying areas across the Canterbury Plains. We may see some light frosts through the Interior depending on low cloud and fog – higher chance Twizel & Mt Cook Village.
Our overall weather shows some improvements on Thursday through the weekend with slightly milder temperature and more sunshine hours, before some very cold air, rain and snow to lower levels during middle stages of next week.
