Christchurch residents rose to stunning skies this morning for the third time this week.

MetService meterologist John Law said Christchurch had seen some "fantastic sunrises" this week because of the clear mornings.

"Last night wasn't nearly as cold as the previous few nights," Law said, with the temperature hovering around 9 degrees Celsius.

However the MetService is warning of expected gales in the Canterbury high country this afternoon, with the risk of "severe gales" overnight tonight.

Law said the new few days would see a "bit more of a north westerly" coming through, which would keep temperatures up but could be "blustery".

Toward the end of the week, Law said to watch out for strong winds with "more of a showery weekend" in store.
