Tuesday was the well-publicised spring equinox, and with the advent of longer days, we’re about to see them become a bit more windy, too.
Westerlies will roar in from the Tasman Sea all of this week and into next, with the pattern of strong winds around the east coasts of both islands.
There’s not a lot of rain in the sou-west flow currently moving across and up the country, but there will be the odd cloud here and there (though the wind will push most of those on quickly!)
This shouldn’t drop the temperatures too much, particularly in the North Island, with mild blustery conditions expected for most of today, while in the south, the warm airflow will bring its fair share of rain to western parts, and Fiordland in particular.
