FRESH COLD SOUTHERLY CHANGE TODAY – brief showers for parts of the region.

Good morning. We have frosts in parts of South and Mid Canterbury early on, while areas of low cloud and fog affect many coastal areas and large parts of North Canterbury.

A fresh cold south/south-westerly change moves north this morning, with a period of showers during the afternoon and evening. Light snow will also lower to around 1000m, about the eastern hills and ranges. Conditions then ease from the south, with frost risk overnight.

Temperatures will be cold across the region today, with many areas remaining in single digits, especially about those more southern and central areas.

Check into your town page for specific and moderated temperatures, wind and finer rainfall details today, there will be contrast across the region, with parts of the Mackenzie Country west of Burkes Pass remaining dry.
