Muggy subtropical conditions are about to get blown away as the mercury dips and strong winds hit Wellington and Wairarapa this weekend.

MetService has issued a severe weather watch for both areas from tomorrow night with northwest gales gusting to 100kmh expected to whip Wellington's hills and the Tararua ranges from tomorrow night through to Sunday morning in the capital and easing off by Sunday afternoon in Wairarapa.

''There's a cool change coming so it won't feel as humid as it has been - it will feel noticeably less subtropical,'' MetService forecaster Leigh Matheson said.

On Saturday temperatures in Wellington would peak at 19 degrees Celsius and 22C in Wairarapa with highs about a degree lower on Sunday in both regions.
