The above webcam points  SE, from the Maungaraki hill. This means that the predominant NW wind comes from behind the camera. Where rain is showing on the image, this is likely to have come from the South, although occasionaly spots appear on strong NW days.The view is across the Dowse interchange,  Lower Hutt, Petone, Seaview, Eastbourne and over towards the Wainuiomata Hills

The camera also doubles as a traffic cam for State Highway 2. It's not uncommon to see the roundabout busy between 7am and 9am on weekdays. If there is a delay on the Dowse Interchange it usually means there is aproblem on the road further south on State Highways 2 or 1, travelling to Wellington
