First day of winter packs a punch


While the sun may be out and the sky may be clear and blue, the first day of winter made its mark with icy morning temperatures.

Metservice recorded a mere two degree temperature either side of 8am this morning out at the Nelson Airport and many drivers were forced to de-ice their windscreens before hitting the road.

The rest of the week looks like more of the same with forecasted overnight lows of three degrees whilst warming during the day with clear skies and sunshine in the afternoons.

If you have any wintery photos, let us know, we’d love to see them and put them up here.
