Has this been a wetter winter than usual?

As far as meterogical mapping goes, has this been a wetter winter on record? Its winter, I get that but I don't recall having this much rain in one single season and living on the East Coast of Auckland, we have been inundated with frequent systems lashing our area. Is there a specific reason for this uncharateristic weather pattern?

Rain rain rain

Hi WW
Any idea how long this rain is going to last in Auckland? Hoping sunny spring days aren't too far away!

How long is a piece of

How long is a piece of string? :)

Next week may provide a few consecutive days without rain or showers but we'll have to wait a little while till that comes to fruition. In the meanwhile yes hopefully some nice weather isn't too far away, it is Spring though so changable weather should be expected.

Hi can u please tell me what

Hi can u please tell me what the weather is like for this sunday in Coromandel

thanks

Hi thereVery much like is in

Hi there

Very much like is in the Auckland forecast above. Cloudy periods with showers (with showers though dry spells now and then are likely too), gusty west to southwest winds are likely. The eastern side of Coromandel being a little more sheltered may see less showers overall then western parts of the peninsula.

Rain map don't agree with forecast

Hi there,

I checked out the long range rain forecast maps for Sunday 21st for Auckland.

Browsed through all the available  3 hourly timeslots available. None of them show any precipitation over Auckland.

However your long range forecast for Auckland Sunday disagrees with your rain maps completely.

How come?

G'day thereWe use a variety

G'day there

We use a variety of data not just the maps from the links above.

Feel free to take a look here for e.g. Hope that helps!

Next Sunday Auckland

Hi guys

Having an outdoor house party on next Sunday (21st Sep) in Central Auckland (Meadowbank).

Can we expect some sun? Metservice says it's going to rain for the next 10 days. Either they haven't updated their weather icons or they are on to something. What are your thoughts?

Hi thereYou could expect some

Hi there

You could expect some sun for a time during the day but plenty of cloud and showers about look likely at this stage too. Showers more so in the afternoon, winds fresh from the southwest.

It is 7 days away though which can make for challenging forecasting that far out, feel free to come back and ask closer to the time if you like. :)

South Westerlies

South Westerly blowing well in New Lynn, some massive cumulus clouds about.

Sunday afternoon sun in Auckland city?

Hi guys

Have a small shoot on Sunday afternoon from midday - do you think we are in for any sunny breaks in Auckland city or just cloud?

Your advice (as always) greatly appreciated!

Briar

Hi Briar - always very tricky

Hi Briar - always very tricky to predict cloud cover in Auckland at specific times. Sunday sees showers slowly easing and SW winds moving in - that usually brings sunny spells but if the showers don't fade out quickly it may be cloudier rather than sunnier.  

Cheers

WW

Thanks guys.

Thanks guys.

Gales and,its Auckland ofcourse

Great Barrier Island

Hi there, would be really greatful if you could please advise what it is going to be looking like for Great Barrier from Friday-Sunday - is it going to be the same as auckland?

 

Thanks so much,

Melanie

Hi thereYes the weather will

Hi there

Yes the weather will likely be very similar, but the timings may be slightly different. On Saturday for example, the SW change late afternoon / evening may not bring showers to GB till evening where-as Auckland still has a chance the front may arrive later in the afternoon.

On Sunday GB has a slightly lesser risk of showers overall so they may clear up in the afternoon altogether where-as Auckland could see the odd one still trickle in after midday.

Friday 12th Sports Team Trip

Hi, we have pencilled in a end of season trip to Rainbows End this Friday, if not too wet. What's your prediction for the days weather at this venue?

Currently Friday looks to

Currently Friday looks to have patchy showers about with northeasterly winds, dry spells look likely too so at times the showers may switch off.

A high up around 18 degrees.

WW

How long should we expect this warm weather to continue?

 

The warm weather has come as switch this past week, with temperatures up 2 to 3 degrees than the previous month.

Until the next southwest

Until the next southwest change moves though :) Potentially this could be Saturday or closer to the 20th September.

But overall we are now getting into Spring and then next is summer so naturally we will start to warm up around the country, look forward to it!

Aaron

...is it alright to wish for more southwesters ;-)

NO

NO!

Hi WW!

I'm having an outdoor event from 11am onwards this coming Sat in Omaha. How are the conditions looking? Do you think it will be too cool and windy?

Cheers guys :)

Hi thereShould be resonably

Hi there

Should be resonably warm up around 17 to 18 degrees. Mostly sunny with light southerlies.

Just the risk of an isolated shower however, mainly afternoon / evening.

Tiri Tiri Matangi

We are wanting to visit Tiri Tiri island this saturday. Are the showers forcast for the day likely to be in this region>

Saturday may be fairly dry

Saturday may be fairly dry there with sunny spells and some cloud, southwesterly winds. Still the risk of a brief shower or two but for the most part mainly dry weather :)

Lovely sunshine

Great to have lovely bright sunshine this morning as I watch a front slide over Rosebank.

Now the weeds & grass will take off :)

How is Fathers day looking??

How is Fathers day looking?? Hopefully the sun is 

out...

At this stage yes Sunday 7th

At this stage yes Sunday 7th should be ok, a southerly airflow means skies should be mainly sunny. Some cloud could be expected at times.

Southerly winds are at a moderate speed. A high of 16 degrees.

Heavy Rain in Auckland.

It's has been raining the whole day in Auckland. Why is the chance of rain sitting at 30-50%. Been raining since this morning in all parts of Auckland. Cheers.

Hi there, yes certainly was

Hi there, yes certainly was wetter than we had in our early forecast today but fairly early we lifted those percentages up. The rain hasn't been heavy for everyone though, with many parts have lighter rain/spits. Normally SE flows like this break the rain up - some areas can be dry/drizzly while others have steady rain.  But yep, we could've been a bit more accurate today!

Cheers

WW

It is nice to get the rain.

It is nice to get the rain.

Agreed!  Nice to see the sun

Agreed!  Nice to see the sun tomorrow too hopefully :)

Wind Change

Whoops, SW wind  blowing well this morning in New Lynn. Cooler & very wet!

Sunday on the North Shore

Hi are you able to tell whether the rain on Sunday would be throughout the day or strong in the morning or afternoon etc?

Hi thereI wouldn't want to

Hi there

I wouldn't want to speculate when areas of precipitation
will alternate between patchy showers or rain exactly. But if anything
during the morning and afternoon areas of precipitation (showers) will be more
likely for northern parts of Auckland with lighter falls / dry spells
further south. In the evening rain looks to become more widespread.

The
reason for the north / south split is due to the Coromandel, it blocks
some of the weather from affecting southern parts of Auckland in an
easterly airflow which occurs this weekend. Weather that sneaks over the
top gets into northern areas.

Hope that helps somewhat.

WW

Sunday!

Hi There,

When will the rain kickoff on Sunday? I'm wanting to be outside between 9.45 and 10.45!!!!

Hello. I think I already know the answer to this question, but I am hoping the pictures have it wrong.. I am really really wanting the weather sunny in Auckland on Saturday.. any chance at all? :(

G'day there

Not looking very sunny at all unfortunately. Chances look slim to none of some sun coming through :(

WW

Finally

I hope this nice weather will last a couple of weeks !!!

Sorry it will only last until

Sorry it will only last until Weds! But it might return again after the weekend :)

Weds Edit: May well last until Saturday in a more settled way now - the rain is being held up by this high over us :)

Wind in Central East Auckland

We are currently getting hammered with some of the worst winds we have had this year and that's saying something after all the wind we've had this year. Weird thing is I can't really find mention of winds being this bad on any websites. Are we in an isolated pocket or is this unexpected weather? How long will it last?

"gusty winds"

Hi guys

Your forecast for tonight said "Showers and gusty northeasterlies". Well, around our parts (Glendowie) it's more like a wind bomb / gale force!! What is the outlook for the rest of the night / tomorrow?

Thanks. HW (9:34pm)

What does gusty mean? we are

What does gusty mean? we are hitting 65kmph winds here in Torbay currently. 8:42pm

Isn't that gales?
