The Met Service has issued a severe wind warning today.
“Gales ahead of the front are expected to be severe about the hills of Wellington, over Wairarapa, the Tararua District and Hawkes Bay south of Waipukurau through to late afternoon. Gusts around 130 km/h are likely in exposed parts of these areas during this time. Winds of this strength have the potential to damage trees, power lines and insecure structures, as well as making driving hazardous, especially for motorcycles, tall sided vehicles and cars towing caravans.”

So it is just as well we are safe at home and not towing the caravan anywhere today. Those high winds make it extremely dangerous to be out and about in weather like this.
