A SUNNY & SETTLED THURSDAY LINED UP – SEVERE MORNING FROSTS FOR THE INTERIOR (FREEZING FOG RISK.)
Good evening. It’s been another sunny & settled day across the region. We have seen a few cloudy periods about the coast and areas of fog in the Mackenzie Country with Twizel struggling to a high of just 2.5 degrees after dropping to -7 degrees this morning. Our daily ‘high’ went to Geraldine with a modest 12.3 degrees. Full list of the daily ‘highs’ below.
Tonight frosts will be widespread and severe about the Mackenzie Country and inland basins. (Source your town page for specific overnight temperatures.)
Our current ridge of high pressure brings an extended period of sunny, settled & frosty weather through until the weekend = superb mid-winter weather & conditions.
While we can expect mostly fine weather keep an eye out for areas & ‘pockets’ of low cloud & fog overnight; higher risk about the basins through the Interior & Mackenzie Country.
Conditions start to change early next week with milder northerlies and more cloud and shower risk. We then have our eyes on some possible colder weather towards the end of the first week of July – more to come over the following days.

There are signs at long last of colder southerlies, rain and snow towards the end of the first week – nothing ‘locked in’ but some gradual changes in our overall set-up.
