Why are these pesky SW winds still hanging around?  i thought they were limited to Spring time?


Also, how do I get colleagues to switch from MetService to WW.  In my mind, you are far superior but MET has done a great job of brainwashing people into thinking they are best.

    Well... if you are



Well... if you are regular to this website then you would have seen articles and videos both explaining and showing why we are stuck in this spring like pattern.


I really only look at the

I really only look at the pictures at the top to be fair.


But they seem to be spot on all the time.


When can we expect winds in Maramarua? Its calm as at the moment. Thanks

Winds should gradually ramp

Winds should gradually ramp up mid afternoon onwards for you. They won't be as bad as further north in Auckland though.


Hi where is the rain!! Is

Hi where is the rain!! Is Auckland going to miss it??

Been getting showers in New

Been getting showers in New Lynn. Wind not too bad & seems to have eased.

Hi there, Auckland was never

Hi there, Auckland was never going to get a great deal of rain from this low in our view. Some parts of the region will get another 20 to 30mm over the next 12 to 18 hours, but some areas may not be so fortunate (if it's going to be unsettled it might as well rain too!)

Winds will be the main feature for Auckland, especially later tomorrow.


Cyclone June

Hey WeatherWatch Team,

Hope things are well....

Anyway here in Te Atatu, June seems to breaking quite quickly not much wind either and hardly no rain must be luck on our side :D looking at weather maps looks to me the worst of June has passed and weakening as it drops south.

Thanks for updates....... 

Kindest Regards


Hi Ben - yes not a great deal

Hi Ben - yes not a great deal of activity for Te Atatu although easterly wind gusts in some exposed areas may now reach gale force.  Rain isn't much, but we never expected much for Auckland from this storm.  The stronger winds will likely be tomorrow when we get the opposite side of the low (sou'westers).

Appreciate your updates too!

WW team 

Hi Guys Do you know what the

Hi Guys

Do you know what the weather is likely to be like for this auckland anniversary weekend? ANd especially Sunday. If rain, what are the chances and how much in terms of mm



G'day thereAt this stage

G'day there

At this stage Saturday is looking nice and sunny, light winds and afternoon sea breezes.

Sunday is fairly good too, high cloud gradually increases from morning though, light northerlies tend southwest in the afternoon.

Monday sees cloudy skies with southwesterly winds, a few brief showers at times as a front will be slowly crossing over the Aucland area during the day. At this stage I wouldn't anticipate anymore then 3 to 5mm perhaps even less is more likely.



Hey guys, I see the other place has put out a severe wind warning for Auckland tomorrow for 120k winds - do you see that as well?  REALLY hoping you are going to say no......

Winds will be strong tomorrow

Winds will be strong tomorrow afternoon as the swing round to the SW. Gale gusts are likely (63 km/h). We don't anticipate 120 km/h gusts about the city, 80 to 100 km/h max would be a better figure. We anticipate gusts possibly up to 120 km/h about exposed coastal areas (Manakau Heads).


Do you see things calming

Do you see things calming down in the evening?

Yes conditions will ease,

Yes conditions will ease, winds won't drop out and die but they will gradually ease :)



Sorry - forgot to include - I'm in Auckland!!

What is the question

What is the question exactly?


Beautiful evening in Auckland

Lovely pink sky behind the Waitakere Ranges as the sun goes down. Magnificent weather in Auckland

as  evening falls.


After opening the maps available on your site, they aren't showing the rain or wind.  Is there a problem with the maps, or is it perhaps something to do with my computer do you think?  Many thanks

Hi there, no your computer is

Hi there, no your computer is probably fine, the team at MetOcean (who provide the maps to us and others) made some major upgrades over the Xmas period. Since then they have had a few bugs. At the moment the maps are working - but the load times are quite slow sometimes (like 15 seconds or so) for the map to actually open up once you've selected the time.  Try zooming in and out a bit too, that sometimes fixes things.

For others who are reading this - the maps issues are out of our hands, which is why we are now searching for alternative map providers.  NIWA will be bringing us rain maps in the next few months, the first time the NZ public has had free access to them.  Plus we are working with CountryTV to find additional maps.  The team at MetOcean do a great job, but we want our site to eventually have a range of maps - and not just one service.

Cheers - and apologies on behalf of the team at MetOcean for the ongoing map bugs.


Hi weather Watch, what has

Hi weather Watch, what has happend to our summer, will these cold winds ever end.

Fingers crossed



Hi Mike - we expect warmer

Hi Mike - we expect warmer weather next week for a time and then again next weekend. However may still have one more cooler, windier, spell before the month is out - but most likely the one we've just had (on Friday) was the biggest one.



Such as crappy summer this year over the whole country, last year was stella! Really disappointing but hey hopefully Feb will bring some solid weeks of pure sun, no wind and no rain. Keep up the good work guys

Crappy summer = great summer for Auckland


The weather in Auckland is
shaping out to be quite good, pleasant daily highs not too hot, not too cold
and frequent showers. Unlike last year we are having a decent amount of rainfall
and it hasn't been stinking hot!

Clothing layers?

Great work WeatherWatch with the accurate forecasting. Are you intending to put sort of a 'clothing layers' advisory (similar to Metservice's) on your website?

Hi there - thanks very much

Hi there - thanks very much for that.  We are not planning on copying MetService's clothing layers idea as we feel in NZ many people might not agree with it.  For example - some of the tough farmers who were a singlet in winter!  However we are looking at introducing our "feels like" temperatures which are more extreme (and we think more realistic) than the MetService feels like temps.  So summer highs might feel up to 10degs hotter while winter highs might feel several degrees cooler.  We think that will be a better guide, even if some people find it too subjective for their liking.


 I would find this helpful,

 I would find this helpful, especially if it is based on the wind dirention and stuff like that.


Hi, why is it so windy this year.

Hi Guys Do you know what the

Hi Guys

Do you know what the forecast will be like for the upcoming auckland long weekend. Looking at doing some special on Sunday and hopefully it doesnt rain at all!



At this stage not sure sorry

At this stage not sure sorry as that is quite a while away. Long range models have a tropical low potentially in the mix but others have an anticyclone giving good weather so it's a mixed bag at this stage as to what will happen.

Come back and ask 7 days out if you can, considering there is the potential for a tropical low impacting the weather.

Thanks for writing in! :)


Hi guys, Looking to do some

Hi guys,

Looking to do some fishing off waiheke this week but only have a small tinny, is the wind due to die off at any stage?

Thanks heaps!!

Hi thereTomorrow evening may

Hi there

Tomorrow evening may be ok, it won't be wind free but SW's about 15 to 20 kph.

Otherwise Saturday afternoon is well and truly looking like a better time with an anticyclone providing light winds.


Every day same boring

Every day same boring forecast.......


I know what you mean, it would be good to have a deep depression or something

Next 2 weeks

Your forecasts are always the most accurate! My sister will be over from the UK shortly and we will be in Northland 19-26 January. I was hoping for long sunny days, but it looks like clouds, wind and rain. Do you have any cheerful news?!

Hi thereI won't give anything

Hi there

I won't give anything too detailed at this stage as those dates are a while away. Will mention the beginning though below.

The start of your trip looks like it could be a bit wet, Rain developing in the later part of Sunday, then easing to showers Monday with a southwest change. Pleae note rain could be heavy and winds strong around this time. Tuesday the 21st looks sunny with good weather. Mind you in saying the above this is the current outlook due to a tropical low in the mix, these things have a habit of changing and moving quite often in model runs in the lead up to an event so it could well change.

Fingers crossed at this stage the remaining days may be looking ok.

Hope your trip goes well anyway and please feel free to ask closer to the time.



Hey Team!


I can't comment on the Hamilton forecast so I thought to do it here. Is the 18 degree forecast for Friday accurate? Usually this time of year we see 28 degrees so the forecast of 18 to me seems unreal!


Thanks heaps WW.

Hi thereCurrently looking

Hi there

Currently looking like it may be 21 degrees now but still not the 28 your hoping for, might push 22 if your lucky.

Yes has certainly been a bit colder this time round :(


Rain Maps

Hi,I think the rain maps are not working. Tried it just now.

Next week 20th

Hi Phil

What are your thoughts on a possible tropical low dropping in next week after 20th? It looks like forming around Vanuatu area which usually sets us up for a hit.

Hopefully it doesn't ruin the long weekend.

Cheers Dave 

Hi there - we're still seeing

Hi there - we're still seeing the Tasman Sea high pushing back into it - but definitely one to watch for northern NZ. Right now it looks as though the high will win, but any low in that part of the world poses some risk to NZ that's for sure.  


17th Jan


Could you please advise the weather forecast for Friday on Waiheke?

Metservice says rain, others say sun/cloud no rain....

Thanks so much!

G'day thereLooks to be a

G'day there

Looks to be a period of morning showers then clearing by midday, sunny spells in the afternoon. Winds brisk (perhaps strong at times) from the southwest. A high of 21 degrees.


Wonderful!!  Thank you!!

Wonderful!!  Thank you!!

20 degrees

20 degrees on Friday!!

It's mid Summer :(

  Perfect Summer weather


Perfect Summer weather tooo, not too ho not too cold!!

endless west and SW in Auckland


I live at Piha am going crazy with the endless West and SW winds ruining the surf. (No offshores for endless weeks now). Last year at this time we had already a nice mix of Eaterlies and Westerlies, and the stats give this season to have roughly 48%-50% Easterlies Jan-March. What's going on that's different this year?


Looks like more easterlies

Looks like more easterlies later this month but still a LOT of WSW winds to go through yet. The reason - the highs are centred over eastern Australia - which sends a SW flow up and over NZ.  Easterlies might increase late Jan and into Feb.  


    Spring's revenge may



Spring's revenge may be?


Auckland's spring lacked a little ummph this time round...
