A low band of cloud has reached across the Cook Strait and into Wellington Harbour.

MetService meteorologist Dan Corbett said the line of low cloud had reached up the east coast of the South Island and came across the Cook Strait this morning.

The southerly wind had blown the cloud like a finger into Wellington Harbour. Some more was sitting at the end of the Wellington Airport runway.

The top of the thin layer of cloud was about 150m but it was not expected to cause any flight disruptions.

The cloud was expected to burn off this afternoon.

What do you make of the proposed conference centre/hotel for Wellington?

Great - a big boost for the local economy

Nice - one of many projects needed

Argh - a white elephant in the making

First priority should be airport runway extension

Not sure at all
