Default Wellington weather

Hi over there.

The main characteristic of New Zealand weather is that it's very changeable. That's because we're a long, narrow country with a pretty continuous central mountain chain, and the whole affair set at about 90 degrees to the prevailing winds; NW brings us usually warm weather which the Australians send across to us, and SE brings cool which the penguins send up to us. Wellington, being at a gap in the mountain chain does tend to wind more often than many other places but ours are overall not stronger.

Early September is the beginning of our spring and usually a lovely time. Daytime temperatures can easily be mid 15sC and nights maybe 10-12C. At any time of year 10C is a cold day. Winds can range from zero to gale, but the chosen site is really rather sheltered.
