Frosty Dawn Service For Anzac Day

Frosty Dawn Service For Anzac Day

MetService meteorologists are forecasting a fine day over New Zealand and a frosty dawn in many South Island places for ANZAC day.

"A cool southwesterly flow over the country is about to be replaced by an anticyclone with light winds and clear skies", commented MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt.

"On Friday morning, dawn air temperatures are expected to be below 4 degrees for much of the South Island, and this is cold enough for a ground frost to occur. The coldest towns are expected to be Queenstown and Wanaka where the air temperature may reach zero degrees. Many places in the North Island about and south of Taupo will also reach single digits."

Looking further ahead for the weekend, Mr. McDavitt added that more weather changes were likely. "The anticyclones are not hanging around as long as the did over summer, and the next trough will be moving onto New Zealand from the Tasman Sea on Saturday and Sunday, bringing a new episode of wind and rain especially to northern and western areas."
