Airline delays

I'm flying from New Plymouth to Auckland and then on to Gisborne on Sat am 2nd August.  Leave NP 7.00am arrive Gisborne 10.10 am.  I have an event in Gisborne which starts at 11.00 am and I'd like to know the chances of weather delay to my flights so I can weigh up whether I should rebook the flight on the Friday pm.  The weather sites that I monitor indicate the likelihood of low cloud and winds gusting to 26 knots at the time I am due to land in both Auckland and Gisborne.  My flight to Auckland is on a Bomadier Q300 and my flight to Gisborne is a ATR 72.

I would be most grateful if you could give me an idea of the risks that these flights are likely to be disrupted by weather.  Or are you aware of a website where I can get this kind of info.

Hi there - thanks for your

Hi there - thanks for your question.  Our website is the only site that discusses future flight delay risks here in New Zealand but we rarely can make a call until the day itself, as flights are weather dependent not forecast dependent (in other words, they manage things as they go - if winds pick up too much they stop flying for a bit).  The airlines and pilots wouldn't be able to tell you until the day either.  Our feeling is that most flights will be ok this weekend but some small regional flights may have delays (with aircraft held up in other places sometimes due to strong winds).  Absolutely no way of predicting this - all we can do is give you and the airlines a heads up for the risk of weather related delays and cancellations.  BUt he weather on Sunday between Gisborne and Auckland will be wet and a bit windy but not severe at this stage - we aren't expecting many flight problems nationwide this weekend.

Cheers

WW

Excellent Service Thank You

Thanks for you "most flights will be ok this weekend" prediction and your excellent service.  I think I will risk it! I'm not so concerned about Sunday because if I get delayed comming back all I will miss is a days work :)

Raglan this fri & sat

Hey WW! We're heading down to Raglan on friday coming back to AKL sat evening. Hows the weather looking like for those two days. Many thanks!

Hi thereFriday is looking

Hi there

Friday is looking resonable at this stage, periods of cloud with a few sunny spells, northeasterly winds. Cloud thickens mid afternoon onwards and there may be a brief shower or two in the evening / overnight.

On Saturday skies are looking a little cloudier with breezy northerlies, chance of a brief spit or two however the further you move towards Auckland the chance of any spits becomes less. Temperatures quite mild, up in the high teens 18 / 19 degrees on both days.

Hope your trip goes well! :)

Saturdays my wedding day

Pretty gutted, hope that forecast will change. I am getting married this sat 2 August, in Torbay on the shore - do you think the pendulum may swing in my favour, with some sunshine ?

It may well change between

It may well change between now and then, currently things are looking up :) There is a front / system due later on Sunday so hopefully that holds off a bit more as the week goes on then Saturday may improve still. We'll have to wait and see how this one unfolds.

You could find there will be some snow about so I'd definately check on conditions before you do travel. Thursday may be the better option but icy roads morning and night is possible.

That wedding day :)

Hi there mate, I asked you a few weeks back, what the weather is looking like over the horizon (2 August) I am getting married on August 2 on the North Shore, it's less than 2 weeks away - any predictions or should I ask again in a weeks time or so?? Thanks so much for the great work you do for us .. Regards shane

Current indications are a

Current indications are a ridge lies over the upper North Island on the 2nd August, so from that point of view it could be mainly settled and sunny. But yes feel free to come back in a week and we'll hopefully be able to get a better idea on things :)

Aaron

Snow in Auckland?

I've just been watching tiny drops of something floating and swirling in the air. I couldn't catch any of it. Could it be snow? There's no rain clouds directly overhead D. Green (Waitakere) 

100% will not be snow, not

100% will not be snow, not sure there sorry.

Hi guys
Enough warmth up there to burn this fog off today (she says with 5 people on a photo shoot waiting for some sun!)
Thanks
Briar

Fog was a little hard to pick

Fog was a little hard to pick nearly a week out when we previously talked, Hopefully you managed ok with your shoot though! :)

Fog tomorrow in auckland

I had my regional flight out of Auckland cancelled this morning.  Looking to try again for tomorrow morning.  Am I better to try and fly out tonight in case tomorrow morning is fog again?  Or is tomorrow morning going to be clear?

You should be ok tonight or

You should be ok tonight or tomorrow morning, the air is looking to get a little drier. Can't totally rule out a few fog patches tomorrow morning but if anything does form it should'nt be too significant.

Hi thereSaturday afternoon

Hi there

Saturday afternoon conditions will finally ease :)

It has been windy in Auckland for a while so could understand your looking forward to it being over!

WW

storm

I remember Cyclone Bola, the winds of this storm seem worse than Bola and I don't remember a 'storm' ('cyclone') that went on this long. We've had this hanging around for about. 3-4days now...Why don't these 'storms' have the term cyclone or hurricane attached to them anymore ( like In the 'olden' days?)

Hi there, quite often

Hi there, quite often cyclones or storms move through fairly quickly - in fact the gales from a cyclone may only last 3 to 6 hours in some cases, because they are tightly wrapped around the centre.  This week we have had a low pressing in against a high - and that's ramped the winds up further.  The high is big, slow moving, etc - so that's why the winds aren;t moving - the high isn't moving.  That changes over Saturday though...finally!

Friday 11th

Hi 

Have got a concrete pour booked for this friday, how late do you think the rain will come in?

G'day thereThe latest

G'day there

Dry Spell

Hi,

 

I am just hanging out for a dry spell so I can can get my house finished.  Delays on the build have put us 7 weeks behind which includes the exterior painting.  Do you predict a dty spell (a few days) in the coming weeks.

Thanks!

Ben

 

 

G'day BenSaturday and Sunday

G'day Ben

Saturday and Sunday may give you some reprieve. The odd shower may move in again from late Sunday afternoon though. Then it's looking like the later half of next week may be dry too as an anticyclone moves over (perhaps just Thu and Fri). Starts to get a bit difficuilt when you go that far out though.

WW

Hi guys Me again.  Looking at

Hi guys

Me again.  Looking at photoshoots in Auckland on Sat 12th/Sun 13th/Mon 14th July - are we likely to get any sunny spells in between showers?

Also - Queenstown on the 16th - probably too far out but any thoughts on long range and possibility of some sun?

As always, wonderful to hear any predictions as you guys are most accurate site!

all the best,

Briar

Hi BriarSaturday should be

Hi Briar

Saturday should be mostly sunny and dry at this stage, there may be some early morning rain but it's looking to clear fairly quickly at this stage.

Sunday is looking pretty good too, perhaps a few clouds about. Late afternoon / evening a few showers may start drifting in.

Monday sees showers in the morning then clearing around midday with afternoon sunny spells increasing, southwesterly winds.

In Queenstown, yes it is a while out but currently it's looking like a fine day may squeeze in as a ridge starts to spread in from the Tasman Sea. Won't be very warm though!

Thanks for the comment :)

Aaron

Storms

It seems as though we've had quite a few damaging storms just recently (esp from the east). Is it more than usual? Last year seemed much more settled ( or is this my imagination?).

If these storms are more frequent or unusual then why is this so and is this the new pattern/ more on the way this year and next?

Thanks.

Hi there - yes this year we

Hi there - yes this year we have a few more windy events for the country, but this is just part of a normal neutral weather pattern (ie, no La Nina, no El Nino).  There are often wind/rain events like this around NZ but the majority of them zip by us out to sea and don't hit us directly.  New Zealand is just two small mountainous islands in the roaring 40s and on the edge of the sub-tropics - anything can happen to us in winter, from wintry snowy weather to sub-tropical wind and rain events like this!

August ?

I know it's a wee way out ... I am getting married sat August 2, what's your weather predictions for our big day ? :) cheers
