Flight delays possible due to high winds

Severe gale southerlies through Cook Strait and up to Taranaki, along with usual gales in other parts of the North Island, may lead to some flight delays today, says WeatherWatch.co.nz

A low crossing over the North Island last night will lie just near East Cape this afternoon, dredging up a strong southerly over the North Island and upper north eastern South Island.

This southerly will be squeezed through Cook Strait to Taranaki and may see flight delays, particularly with turboprop aircraft regionally.

Wellington Airport has sustained gales forecast overnight with gusts over 100km/h possible.

These gales brush parts of Manawatu, Taranaki and even into Auckland too.

The good news is that winds will peak earlier in the day and ease into the afternoon. Most airports will notice winds easing back overnight tonighy and into Wednesday as high pressure (briefly) expands across New Zealand.
