Hey whats the winter like in

Hey whats the winter like in the whole country this year specially Auckland (New Lynn/West)? I just want to know. And will it be a long one or short one? :)

I'll have to find a working

I'll have to find a working crystal ball to make the kind of prediction, unfortunately can't help that much. You need a seasonal outlook which NIWA would be more helpfull with, generally anyone predicting that far out can't be too specific anyway however.


storm chasing.

man may and december are differently my favourite months for storm chasing due to may changing from northern lows to mid to south lows that generaly bring in cold fronts that over lap heat thats been trapped in the country from summer and autumn bringing up those afternoon and mid night storms :)

Then again december the change to boiling hot moist air and easing winds causing giant torrential falls or convections to grow into supercell storms. saddly up hear in auckland we dont have enough land to trap in the heat and we have quite alot of coast winds blowing those clouds into soggy nimbostatus.


I'm looking forward to the

I'm looking forward to the storm season again down here Zac! Can't wait to chase like yourself, love that time of year :)


cant wait!

i am despertly lokking for a good may like last year.


hello! May be a little too

hello! May be a little too early to ask but... We're heading to Mangawhai this weekend (26th - 29th)...what will the weather gods be doing then? thanks!

Hi thereWell we can have a

Hi there

Well we can have a look, may be a little early as you say but lets see....

Saturday, right.... straight off the bat we have a front moving through by the looks. Cloudy with areas of rain developing in the morning and northwesterly winds. A change to southwesterlies late afternoon with rain easing to showers which clear by evening.

Sunday, morning cloud breaks to sunny spells. Southwesterly winds.

Monday, sunny spells with light winds tending southerly. Evening showers as easterlies freshen.

Tuesday, brisk easterly winds, the odd shower about mainly morning.

Temperatures around the high teens / low 20's mark during these days.

Please note as you know this could change being a little while away, lets hope it does for the better!


fishing conditions

what are the fishing conditions for the waitamata harbour on monday 21\4\2014


Periods of cloud and a few

Periods of cloud and a few sunny breaks at times, the odd shower possible now and then too but overall it will be mostly dry.

West to southwest winds, getting a bit breezy in the afternoon (30 km/h gusting 40 km/h) then easing in the evening. Not much swell but it could get a little choppy in the afternoon with whitecaps.


Next weekend

Glad to see the storms are coming back just in time for our next long weekend!!!!! Auckland weather is a joy!!!!

Tuesday forecast (school holiday) forecast ???

Hey just wanted to know forecast for Tuesday whole day . thanks Auckland

Hi thereNot much different

Hi there

Not much different from the forecast above, sunny spells and periods of cloud. West to southwest winds.

There may be an isolated shower late afternoon / evening otherwise dry conditions expected.


Saturday weather

Hi, Was going to run a motocross training event tomorrow just North of Warkworth. They say it is going to rain but clearing in the afternoon. Do you think this will blow over sooner and tomorrow will be ok?

No, showers about for much of

No, showers about for much of the day for Auckland. There will be dry spells too but yeah, showers with the chance of a heavy fall or two. Showers clearing more in the evening.

Hope things pull together whatever the case anyway!


Travel To Rotorua

Hi ,


How safe is it to drive from Auckland to Rotorua tomorrow Friday 18/04/2014 morning 8am?

Hi thereApologies we missed

Hi there

Apologies we missed this comment. Hopefully your drive went ok, I'm sure it will have been fine :) Although Rotorua has just been through some heavy rain and possible thunderstorms it looks like easing!



Can I get a humidity forecast for the weekend somewhere on your site? We plan to paint (indoors) over the weekend and this will help us to decide whether to do it this weekend.

Humidity will be quite high

Humidity will be quite high over the next few days. 75 to 80% atleast for Saturday and Sunday, possibly higher up to 90 / 95% at times.


Thank you!

Thank you!

Motorcycles - There are no warnings!!!

There are no warnings for motorcycle riders not to ride.

I have no idea how the other guys did it but I was blown from stationary position into another lane on the Auckland motorway.

Signs say surface water take care and great north road closed tonight but if you're in shelter of cities and trees it's hard to tell how bad it really is.

The system needs to improve!!!


I have a suggestion for you - look out the window, surely you don't need other people to warn you 

Tamaki Drive flooded

High tide is at 8:42am and Tamaki Drive is already underwater just past the Ngapipi Rd bridge (city side), traffic at a crawl when I went through at 7:15.

Kohi weather

I've got to go to my canine behaviour and training degree today at unitec Mt Albert. It's training day. Is the weather dangerous for the dogs? It's howling a bloody gale out there!

Its no different for dogs

Its no different for dogs than humans - not a safe morning to be outdoors, but hopefully will improve this afternoon.  All the best and good luck!

So not a good day to get out

So not a good day to get out with the chainsaw to turn these trees into firwood tomorrow I'm guessing!

The wind might give some

The wind might give some trees a hand today!  Tomorrow should be better :)  All the best!

Thunder storms

Hi There, Just wondering if we get thunder storms are they likely to be prolonged? Also could they be worth watching? We are in Maramarua.

Hi there, not sure about them

Hi there, not sure about them being prolonged or not. Most thunderstorms in New Zealand tend to last only an hour or two. Sometimes they can last longer but they are often travelling somewhere so one individual area may only see them for an hour at the max.

The West Coast of the South Island can be a place storms last all night long, happens in spring most of the time.

They could be worth watching although heaps of rain may keep you indoors. Friday afternoon may be better thunderstorm watching wise.


Lunar Eclipse

Hi, in Auckland. What are the chances we'll see the eclipse on the east coast 6-8pm?

Not good, looking pretty

Not good, looking pretty cloudy unfortunately.



Hi there, we planned a trip to rotorua from Auckland on sat and return I on Monday.

Hw z the weather in rotorua on sat/sun/ Monday And any places in between to watch out for bad weather?

Hi thereOn Saturday I'd

Hi there

On Saturday I'd expect light northwesterly breezes, isolated showers about especially afternoon with thunderstorms and heavy downpours possible. This could happen anywhere between Auckland and Rotorua.

Sunday in Rotorua sees sunny spells and westerly breezes, a few showers move through in the afternoon then clear.

On Monday for the drive back it looks like there will be sunny spells and periods of cloud with northwesterly winds, low risk of a shower about otherwise mainly dry.


Thanks for the info!! Just to

Thanks for the info!! Just to say keep up the work

Weather in Paihia

Hi we're driving up to Paihia this friday for the long weekend coming back sunday. Whats the forecast looking like. Thanks

Hi thereFriday and Saturday

Hi there

Friday and Saturday are looking very much like in the current forecast above, sunny spells and isolated showers about, expect dry spells too. It's during the afternoons that showers could become heavy and Saturday has the risk of a thunderstorm or two.

On Sunday the airflow tends westerly, conditions will be mainly dry but there could still be the odd shower about (especially late afternoon / evening). Sunny periods and areas of cloud look likely.


Cyclone Ita Will it affect worse then lusi?

I am just wondering if it is going to affect the north island. More or less Auckland. Would also like to know if I should keep and eye on it and also to regularly report to my friends what is happening. 

We'll have a story out at 7am

We'll have a story out at 7am tomorrow morning that you can read regarding what will be ex TC Ita and it's affects in the 2nd half of next week for Auckland.


Hi guys, How is the Auckland

Hi guys,
How is the Auckland area looking for Easter?

Will have a story out this

Will have a story out this evening that discusses Easter so keep an eye out :)


Easter weekend

Hi we're hoping to take a road trip to new plymouth over easter weekend but the met weather forecsat shows it'll be a total washout. What are you guys predicting? Cheers, Jo

Hi thereIt's still 7 days

Hi there

It's still 7 days away but the pattern does look unsettled so we might be looking at a wet one. Check back here at as we'll have a story or two in the lead up to Easter this week at some point.


Thanks will do


will do

Cyclone Ita

Hi Phil, That Ita looks like a nasty piece of work. It will be interesting to see what it does as it heads to Nth Queensland. The models don't agree on future track but it is possible that it could head our way next week in a weakened state of course. 

I am sure you guys are watching it, what are your thoughts on it? Although we need more rain I would rather it didn't ruin Easter for everyone.

Cheers Dave

Hi Dave - yeah one to watch,

Hi Dave - yeah one to watch, Im still not so sure about what it will do when it gets here - some updates show it flaring up as it moves into Northland, others show it dropping south towards Fiordland.  The weather pattern at the moment is so slow moving, looks more like a summer one.  Still unsure about this one - but probably will have a fair idea by Friday.

- Phil

Latest models are still not

Latest models are still not sure. At least it may go through prior to Easter.

I don't think I have seen models change so often before. Very weird

Cheers Dave

Raining out in the Hauraki Gulf

It looks a bit wet out there in the Gulf, rain over Rangitoto, Motutapu, etc..

Latest forecast for Saturday

Latest forecast for Saturday is above, morning rain easing then clearing. PM sunny spells but chance of a further shower passing through.
