A cooler spell of weather dusting the country brought by a southerly snap will be brief MetService says.

Strong winds travelled up the country last night, with gusts around Hawke's Bay and Wairarapa reaching speeds of up to 100kmh, but eased this morning.

A "moderate to strong" southerly will flow over today, reaching Wellington around midday, continuing this evening and tomorrow, duty forecaster Leigh Matheson said.

Temperatures for the whole country will be "noticeably cooler" than usual for this time of year, she said.

"It's just a cooler spell, it's just pushing quickly through, later on Saturday it should be warming up and coming back to normal."
