Strong southerlies continue to pound Wellington early today, but better weather is on its way.

A ''real consistent southerly'' reached gusts of 105kmh on Mt Kaukau above Wellington, 80kmh in Kelburn, and 75kmh at Wellington Airport yesterday and last night, MetService forecaster Mike O'Connor said.

Similar gusts were being recorded at 6.30am today.The wind would ease through today but drizzly rain would stick around for most of the day.

The southerly would switch to the north early tomorrow, when a largely cloudy day was forecast.

Wednesday may see some early showers followed by fine spells and Thursday would see a further improvement.

MetService is forecasting fine days from Friday through the weekend, however, this could change.

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
