Severe Weather Warning - Severe northwest gales

It's been a while since I've had to post one of these - the weather has been so nice lately, though not good for the fire danger - the recent rain has helped drop it back to what I'd expect for this time of year, it was almost a month ahead of schedule previously.

The MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for severe northerly/northwest gales for Wellington during Tuesday morning and afternoon - 75km/h gusting to 130 in exposed places. There's also a warning for heavy rain (150-200mm) in the Tararua's if you were planning on going tramping in the next day or so, so the lead up to Christmas is looking a bit soggy - at least it'll help the grass grow, the farmers were getting worried.
