It might not quite be swimming weather yet, but a significantly warmer day is expected in the South tomorrow.
Southerners sick of a cool, wet spring will welcome a warm respite predicted for the start of the long weekend.

MetService says Dunedin can expect a 10degC shift up in temperature tomorrow from today's forecast high of 13degC.

The forecaster says the city is in line for a fine start to Labour Weekend, with some high cloud later and northeasterly breezes.

It's much the same around the region - Alexandra is tipped to reach 25degC tomorrow, Oamaru 24degC, and Queenstown 20degC.

Sunday is also expected to be warm, although there is a likelihood of showers in most places, while temperatures are expected to dip again on Monday, when more rain is expected. 

The higher temperatures come at the end of a week in which much of the country was hit by rain, hail and cool weather owing to fronts moving up the country. Snow even closed some highways in the South Island.
