Gales lash central and southern areas

Strong nor’ west gales are hammering parts of the country with Kelburn seeing gusts top the 130kph mark.

Parts of Canterbury are also seeing winds peak above 100kph with the Capital also nudging above the 90 threshold.

The winds are expected to remain strong and very gusty ahead of the front but winds should tend lighter west or sou’ west behind it, as it moves north across the country.

Invercargill is feeling the chill however this morning with a very strong westerly and just 12 degrees.

Hi David

Yes the winds have eased a little but the airport and gardens in Christchurch still have gusts near the 50kph mark so count your blessings!!

Hi Sarah

We believe there’s a 70% chance of some rain tomorrow for Auckland and a few showers possibly middle of the week but the following week is looking dry once more.
