Weather and traffic: Christchurch has a balmy afternoon in store after a brisk start and heavy traffic at the start of the day.

Morning cloud will break to reveal fine, clear skies. A light north-west breeze of 9kmh will appear from 12pm.

The sun will set at 5.11pm.

In traffic, road users can expect central city detours due to closures on Durham St North and Madras St.

Kilmore St also has closures that may affect traffic.

City-bound traffic from Ohoka Rd was heavily building on Main North Rd through Redwood.
