Little respite from the harsh frosty conditions for the Southern Lakes-Central Otago region for the early days of this coming week.
The area has been hit by a long run of brutally harsh frosts.
The frosts have been so severe that some tourist jet boat operators have been forced to park up due to ice on some of the rivers, amounting to big losses in revenues.
WeatherWatch head analyst Philip Duncan says there is no let up to the very cold overnight lows.
He says temperatures in the region can be expected to get down to minus five overnight tonight and minus six overnight Monday and Tuesday.
Mr Duncan says there is the possibility of some snow showers in Queenstown on Wednesday but after that daytime temperatures will climb to seven or eight.
