The third test match continues this morning and weather conditions for Wellington are looking dry and settled for much of the match with the traditional northerly wind picking up!
Temperatures are expected to be in the high teens over the next few days.
Today the wind starts to funnel through the strait, bringing a few clouds to the capital along with a breezy northerly.
Sunday sees a similar situation with the wind becoming a tad stronger, making it even more of a challenge for the bowlers.
Monday should continue to see the wind pick up to almost gale force but it should remain dry overhead with clouds racing by and if the test goes into the final day, Tuesday looks to be the most unpleasant of the game, with a howling gale and afternoon drizzle about the hills, turning to rain by nightfall.
Past history indicates that this Wellington venue has been kind to New Zealand against the touring Indians and let’s hope that the wind will be a part of the game plan for the homeside to level the series!
