WLG has been closed to all flights for tonight. Storm force winds and heavy rain are currently hammering the top of the south island and the lower north island of New Zealand.

I have just been looking at the AKL and CHC real time flight information and several Regional airports have had flights cancelled also.

Will PMR be close tomorrow? I have afternoon flight down there. Also I presume WLG will be reopened by Wednesday. I am going back to AKl form WLG.
The weather here is crap, it is meant to continue rill tuesday or somthing like that. It was freezing in AKL today.

And this is Summer in NZ?

One of the things on my "must do" list is to land at WLG in strong winds - I've seen a video of it (Airside New Zealand) ... boy, are there some crosswinds!

Yes it is summer in NZ.

PMR was one of the airports that had flights cancelled tonight. The strong winds are due to leave the lower north island tomorrow and move north towards AKL
