MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for strong winds on Tuesday morning. Northwesterly gales are expected to develop tonight, with 120km/h gusts for a time (in the 9 hours from 1am to 10am) on Tuesday morning.
Winds of this strength can affect trees, powerlines, insecure structures and make driving hazardous.
I thought I'd placed things where the wind wasn't going to catch them for Saturday, but I found the lid for my BBQ halfway across the lawn, and my wheelie bin had been blown over. I might get some bungy cords for keeping the lid on the BBQ, and tie my bin to something.
