Calmer weather this week
After a rather gusty weekend, where westerly winds approached gales in parts of the region, the weather looks to be settling down this week, according to Metservice. Today is looking mostly fine, apart from a few coastal showers clearing in the early morning and some wind still lingering in the form of westerlies in the Tararua District. The rest of the week is fine, with a few cloudy patches and isolated showers developing on Thursday.
