For many across Aotearoa, the sun is out with temperatures reaching into the high 20's and low 30's but MetService warns an approaching cold front is about to dampen the summer buzz.
Metservice Meteorologist, Luis Fernandez told Newshub that warmer temperatures will drop on Thursday with the South Island bearing the brunt of it.
"Thursday we will see cooler weather across New Zealand, the sharpest drop will be felt in the South Island."
Fernandez says Christchurch is one region that will feel a sharp drop in temperature.
"Christchurch is expecting a high of 31 degrees tomorrow, on Thursday it will reach 18 degrees, quite a sharp drop."
Fernandez says the big temperature drops are taking place mostly on the South Island, with the North Island only seeing a dip in temperatures.
The Meteorologist told Newshub New Zealand won't see temperatures get as high as they have been this week after the cold front has passed.
"At the moment it doesn't look like temperatures get as high as what they currently are this week, temperatures look like they won't bounce back after this."
Fernandez says if warmer weather is your thing, Wednesday is the day to enjoy it.
"If you like hot weather, tomorrow is the day to embrace it."
Fernandez says the cold front will bring some much-needed rain for some parts of the country.
"Most of the county has been relatively dry for some time, the cold front will bring some rain for some areas."
