When is Auckland ever going to see the sun?

When is Auckland ever going to see the sun?

I feel like I'm living in the UK - Aotearoa is a good description for Auckland.

Perhaps on Tuesday morning

Perhaps on Tuesday morning but Thursday is looking like your best bet for some sunny weather :)

But your right it has been quite cloudy for Auckland for ages.

Wet, Normal, Dry

Hi WW Team

Could you give us a prediction for the summer as in will it be hot and will it be either dry, normal or wet. Too many contradictions depending on whether you watch TV 1, TV 3, or listen to the radio.

 

Thank you for your help and keep up the GREAT work!!!

You are the most accurate out there!!

ACD

Hi there ACD - that's because

Hi there ACD - that's because the news networks don't fully understand El Nino or how it affects NZ, they tend to report the big headlines like "droughts as bad as the 1990s".  Generally every El Nino is different and affects different areas in new ways each times.  However the most likely result is for drier than usual weather inland and out to the east, wetter than usual for the west coast of the South island and up to about Taranaki.  North of Taranaki we at WeatherWatch.co.nz tend to believe El Nino's are drier than average for these northern areas too - like Waikato and Auckland and BOP.  However the north always is exposed to a sub-tropical or ex-cyclone rain event.  We're starting to see El Nino show up now in NZ, but only slightly (some in the west are wetter than average, some in the east like Canterbury, are drier than average).  We'll have a better idea about El Nino's impacts on NZ over the coming several weeks.  Hope that helps!

Thanks for your supportive words too!

Cheers

Hi thereThere does appear to

Hi there

There does appear to be some rain next Tuesday / Wednesday for the east coast of the North Island but the timing will likely change, some models are showing it clearing away early Wednesday so we'll have to wait a bit more to see what is a more likely outcome.

Paihia/Russell on labour weekend

Morning cloud on Sunday breaks to sunny areas, winds breezy from the SW. A high of 19

Monday is mostly sunny with SW winds. A bit warmer, up to 21 degrees.

Weekend 31/10-1/11

Hi team

Any chance of getting a long range forecast for next weekend for Auckland?

Thanks :)

southwesterlies as usual

southwesterlies as usual

Hi thereAt this stage I can't

Hi there

At this stage I can't say anything with much accuracy as we are quite far out from then. It looks like we have a low approaching the North Island on Saturday. At this stage perhaps ok to start on Saturday then becoming unsettled in the afternoon and remaining unsettled on Sunday. (Unsettled meaning showers or rain).

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks

for answering :)

whangarei

Hi taveling to Whangarei on friday night for the weekend for an outdoor event - are we likely to get wet?

 

Thanks 

Hi thereIs looking mainly dry

Hi there

Is looking mainly dry at this stage for you, low risk of the odd shower about but that will be mainly for the western side of Northland. I'd expect just some cloud about with moderate winds from the NW, should be a ok!

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there, we're going camping

Hi there, we're going camping at Shakespeare Park Whangaparoa this labour weekend - are we going to get blown or washed away? Hopefully not...

G'day there

Looks like Saturday is the wet day, areas of rain developing in the morning, gusty NW winds change SW in the afternoon with rain easing to showers and mostly clearing in the evening.

Sunday sees areas of cloud and some sun, breezy to brisk southwest winds. Monday has longer sunny spells and winds will be moderate to breezy.

Hope your trip goes well!

El Niño - good or bad for Auckland this summer?

hi, are we going to have a good or bad summer in Auckland this year?  All the talk about El Niño is confusing, still haven't figured out how it's going to affect me in Auckland!

Hi there, El Nino may bring

Hi there, 
El Nino may bring a drier and cooler than average summer to Auckland - more cloud, less rain, a little more wind from the west.  El Nino's bring in more rain to the West Coast but the rain fades out significantly as it moves up the North Island, north of Taranaki.  So a band of rain that hit the West Coast may only bring a shower or drizzle to Auckland in an El Nino summer.  Of course, northern NZ always has the wild card of a sub-tropical low bringing a lot of rain.  But our general basic forecast is that Auckland may have a slightly drier than average summer.

Cheers

Queenstown this weekend

Hi there, im taking a quick holiday to Queenstown this weekend and I was wondering what the weather may be doing on Sat, Sun and Monday! Any ideas yet? or am i too early to ask? :)

 

Thanks!

G'day thereSaturday looks

G'day there

Saturday looks good, mainly sunny with light winds. Overnight and early on Sunday a few showers pass through as a front moves over from the southwest, becoming mainly sunny in the afternoon on Sunday with light southwesterly breezes.

Then finally on Monday we see sunny areas and increasing high cloud during the day, northwesterly winds becoming brisk in the afternoon. Areas of rain move in later in the evening.

Cheers
Aaron

Rain

G'day guys,

Hows the low tracking across the Tasman are we still going to see some reasonable moisture sneaking into Canterbury over the next few days?

cheers

Hi thereA front moving

Hi there

A front moving through on Thursday early in the morning brings some rain to Canterbury and this period of time is looking to bring the best chance of rain, perhaps only 5 to 10mm however for most parts of the region.

Now the low you mention and associated rain is coming in during the second half of Friday and clearing early on Saturday, at this stage it is mainly affecting North Canterbury and perhaps parts of Mid Canterbury. Amounts appear to be more the further north one goes into North Canterbury while Mid Canterbury will only get the odd patchy shower or some drizzle for a time perhaps.

In saying that the low coming in on Friday will have a very uncertain nature about it and will likely change position with each run we see come through. We may have to wait till Thursday or perhaps even Friday morning till we get a more locked in feeling about what will happen and it's movements.

Cheers
Aaron

weather patterns

Hello team my wife and myself are on a cruise leaving 16 NOV AROUND nz AND MELBOURNE and return

Looking at the weather situation can we expect to see el Ninio dye out in November to see calmer weather any comments

Paul Papatoetoe

Hi Paul, El Nino will be

Hi Paul, 
El Nino will be around all Nov and probably all of summer.  It basically enhances the windy westerly flow. However there are plenty of highs around eastern and southern Australia at the moment - it will all come down to timing/luck as to whether or not it's windy or calm when you travel then! Really is 50/50

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Rain

Gday there,

How much rain do you think Canterbury might receive on Thursday etc?

In desperate need of some now.

cheers

May not be much but on the

May not be much but on the plus side a new low coming out of the Tasman Sea changes things up a little for Friday / Saturday so perhaps some better rain then. In total Thursday through till Saturday early morning one could see up to 20mm with an outside chance of some reasonable rain late Friday / overnight possibly pushing that total up to 40 to 50mm but we'll have to wait and see if the models stay consistent for another few days yet.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi when is the NW winds going

Hi when is the NW winds going to ease for Christchurch? it never seems to end :-( 

G'day thereFor the most part

G'day there

For the most part we don't actually have that many NW winds in the pipeline for the next 7 days or so but it certainly won't be all settled weather either. Wednesday afternoon onwards will be a time to watch regarding northwesterlies however with strong winds developing possibly gusting to gale at times.

In the meantime enjoy Tuesday, it should be a good one :)

Aaron

Hello weather team Could you

Hello weather team

Could you tell me how the winds will affect Dunedin city on Wednesday-Thursday. Other forcasts say significant gale NW winds. Have an event so wondering appox how strong they will be. Thanks you guys are so spot on.

thanks

Hi thereThursday has

Hi there

Thursday has southwesterly winds so don't worry about NW winds then.

As for Wednesday yes northwesterlies will be strong and gusty during the day, a low chance winds may gust to gale at times. NW winds don't seem to reach the same intensity for Dunedin as they can for the likes of Christchurch with the same weather pattern sitting over both cities.

Hope your event goes well.

Cheers
Aaron

Rain

Hi, any decent rain for Tauranga in the long range (not much I could see) - ground conditions more like february than October - rain required!

Cheers

Hi thereNothing decent on the

Hi there

Nothing decent on the way as you say unfortunately. Perhaps a few mills overnight on Thursday as a front moves through.

Cheers

Wind!

Hi team.

It's been windy for quite a while now - is there going to be any let-up any time soon?

Hi thereGenerally speaking we

Hi there

Generally speaking we see no let up at the moment, just the time of year with Spring and all so naturally we have a lot of westerly quarter winds.

If your talking about Auckland specifically it may let up on Sunday morning for a time then again next week on Wednesday.

Beyond that late October may see a few less windy periods.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there, Thanks for your

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply.  Yep, talking about Auckland in particular.  Hopefully Summer is a bit more settled!

Breeze clears clouds away

Breezy weather in New Lynn, cloud fragments float about as the thick low cloud moves over East Auckland.

A jet circling Auckland left jet stream trails in between the clouds and a trail cut through them.

Enjoying the sunshine as a couple of butterflies flit about.

Sunday in Auckland

Hi,

Can you give me an idea about what is going to be like on Sunday in Auckland please? Yesterday looking at your forecast I was hopeful but today I'm not so sure...how windy is it likely to be as well? Thanks team 

G'day thereIt's looking like

G'day there

It's looking like a mostly cloudy day with westerly winds, nothing all that strong although winds pick up becoming breezy / brisk late afternoon and evening.

There may be a few sunny areas to start in the morning. Low risk of a shower or two about during the day but this mainly applies to southern parts of the Auckland region.

Overnight a few showers are more likely to move through.

Cheers
Aaron

Impressive cumulus

Beautiful cumulus rise over Waitakere Ranges and are then despatched upward,breaking up as a line of rain sits beneath them in Nor-West Auckland.

The trees about are opening their leaf buds and shining brightly against the silver, white &  mottled sky. Beautiful spring weather!

Wednesday on Waiheke

Hi.  How likely is it to rain on Waiheke on Wednesday?  There has been rain forecast for a while but now it seems both you and the MetService are saying perhaps only cloud or showers in the morning and then fine.  I hope so!!

Hi thereYes currently our

Black clouds growing

Ominous clouds against a beautiful blue twilight sky!
