Wellington's unofficial motto - you can't beat it on a good day - is an ironic nod to the howling wind and cloud cover that usually prevails.
But even for windy Welly, November has been a stinker.
Wellington has received less than four hours sunshine a day this month and is on track to be the dullest November on record.

"We had 12 hours on the first and everything went downhill," MetService meteorologist Lewis Ferris told AAP.
"We've had 66.7 hours in total and that's a long way from the average of 210 hours.
"The smallest number of sunshine on record is 133 hours, back in 1954, so there's definitely a possibility this will come in as the dimmest November."
