Windy Wellington

Wellington is one of the windiest places in New Zealand. This is due to its position on the edge of Cook Strait, the only major gap between the mountains running the length of the two main islands. As winds are funnelled through the passage they become faster and stronger, especially on the northern (Wellington) side of the strait. Wellingtonians learn to live with the wind, some claiming they like it. One positive effect is that air pollution is rarely a problem.
