More wind on the way – #WeatherRisks on Wednesday

It’s shaping up to be another windy one on Wednesday, with the strong northwest airflow still dominating our skies at the moment, while there’s also rain on the horizon for parts of the South Island.


Northwesterly winds, right through from Southland to Cook Strait, will likely be strong – with gales at times, especially about inland areas.
It’s also looking blustery for most of the east of the South Island, and about the straits at the bottom and top of the island.
Northwesterlies may gust to gale near all eastern coastal areas in the afternoon, and also for a time in the early evening.


Expect rain about South Westland from afternoon then moving northwards in the evening, rain may contain heavy falls but it doesn’t look too bad, and certainly nothing they aren’t used to.
