Weatherwatch forecast frost yesterday but -7 in Twizel probably wasn't expected.

Is this is a prelude to a longer colder winter than we are used to?


Road alerts went to our South Island Road users as txt alerts last night as many wouldn't be expecting hard  frosts. The last thing you want is to catch ice while going around a corner especially.


6am Temps:

  • Twizel as at 6am is on -7 degrees! Staggering for April, these temperatures are more associated with June, July and August!
  • Mount Cook: -4
  • Lake Tekapo: -5
  • Burke’s Pass: -5
  • Fairlie: -4

Incredibly, at 7:40am, Fairlie was even colder at -6C.
