Windy Tuesday

The MetService has issued a Special Weather Advisory

SPECIAL WEATHER ADVISORY FOR Central and southern North Island, and near Cook Strait
ISSUED BY METSERVICE AT 10:56am Sunday 26-Dec-2010


A very strong, moist northerly flow should affect the North Island and the Marlborough Sounds on Tuesday. Gale force winds are likely in many places from Taranaki to the Central Plateau and southwards, especially about hilltops and ranges.

Many places in this area could experience unusually strong winds, and there is a risk of damage to trees and loose structures, including tents. Furthermore, driving conditions are likely to be difficult or possibly hazardous, especially to trucks, high-sided vehicles and those towing trailers or caravans.

People in or travelling through these areas should keep up to date with the latest forecasts and warnings, and exercise caution.
