I’ve just been out to the animals. The grass is rock hard, very white. Elevated surfaces also very white and a few icicles on my guttering from the left over rain water. Certainly our heaviest frost in town so far this year I think.

Yesterday dropped to -5.5C rather then -5.1C it turns out, and Dunedin airport got down to -7.2C yesterday to be the coldest MetService station.
This morning, no frost in Christchurch, starting on like 7C where i am and like 5C at the airport, go not far inland though and that high cloud is gone and its frost though.

It’s been cloudy for 3 hours now and there’s still a decent frost on the ground and elevated surfaces at my place. Thermometer has just hit 0 degrees C.
