There is no question that Wellington can be very windy but there are many days when it can be calm or at least just a breeze. There is a saying “you can’t beat Wellington on a good day” which refers to this (though of course I know Aucklanders won’t believe a word of this lol.)

What about an accurate forecast for Auckland – NZ biggest City, with the most changeable weather and varied temperatures. eg. Waitakere just about always 2 or more degrees C higher than Auckland,
Moon and sunset clouds colourful & beautiful over Auckland last night.

Wellington especially over the Nauranga gorge and the hutt are sheltered from W-SW directions too by the south island and as a result experience gorgeous days with light northerlies for sometimes over extended periods,likewise the NE direction can give long warm spells in summer with no wind.
