Severe weather for The South
A severe weather warning has been issued for Otago and Southland. MetService is forecasting severe gales for coastal areas from Invercargill to Dunedin as a cold front moves across southern New Zealand tonight.

The gales are expected to spread to coastal Otago as far north as the Otago Peninsula overnight. The winds will likely be strong enough to damage trees and lift any objects not held firmly in place. Drivers are advised to take care, especially those travelling in high-sided vehicles.
