Update: risk of frost this Friday/Saturday (+maps and graphs) | Weather report

Cooler air is about to spread over the South Island and the southern and eastern sides of the North Island as a large area of ​​high pressure arrives for the long weekend. This means a great weekend for holidaymakers, but some frosts are likely inland.

In most cases, frosts don’t seem like a big deal, but at this critical time of year for growers, attention to detail matters, so here are the latest frost hazard maps.

It seems that the main risk of frosts at lower levels is around Southland and Otago… the further north you go the higher the frosts go.

We help provide you with information about jellies in two ways.

  1. National frost hazard maps on WeatherWatch (at a glance you can see the most affected areas relative to where you are)
  2. The New Zealand Frost Forecaster at RuralWeather (provides hyper-local frost risk graphs as seen below)

Our next weather video around noon today/Wednesday will have more details.
