Christchurch is set to have some sunny clear days, but the temperatures will still struggle to reach double figures.

A MetService spokeswoman said the weather system that wrecked havoc for the past few days had moved so people should expect more normal winter conditions this week. 

She said from today through until Wednesday it will be fine and frosty with light winds. 

However, there will be a few showers and cold southerlies on Thursday and Friday.

She said temperatures would plummet to below freezing most nights, with an expected low tonight of -3 deg Celsius.

Road closures:

Riverlaw Tce - Wilsons to Tennyson St 
Eastern Terrace - from Tennyson St to Birdwood
Waimea Tce -  Birdwood to Riverview 
Ashgrove Tce around 54 Ferniehurst St

A Christchurch City Council spokeswoman said all others were now open. All closed roads were being monitored and will be opened as soon as possible.
