Most places in Waipara seemed to get to -1. We had -2 in our frost forecasts for our clients initially, but revised that back to -1.5 later in the afternoon. :smile:
And that's why many of the growers in Waipara use BS because +5C is absolutely ridiculous,but then again there daily max forecasts are on par also.

Hey that is no good good Richard :-( Temps down over night are around the 5 degrees at 6am. With warm days and plenty of sun the snow on the ranges is retreating. Hopefully the ground is now warm enough to prevent any major frosts now. :-)

Got down to 0 degrees here overnight so a slight frost not enough to do any damage to plants.
