Weather report from archive

Hello. Can you please tell me what was the weather like in Auckland, in particular Blockhouse Bay Area on 29 May 2014 around 3pm? Sorry to trouble you but the information is important for me. Thank you very much. I am a keen follower of your weather reports when we are experiencing bad weather.

G'day DLPThat is something

G'day DLP

That is something you'll have to contact NIWA or Metservice about as they have weather networks around the country that collect that information and store it. We don't have a network as the cost is prohibitive :(

Sorry we can't help you there. Good luck!

Thanks

G'day thereAt this stage

G'day there

At this stage unfortunately it is looking wet with a low pressure system swinging by on Saturday over the North Island, won't get too specific just yet on wind directions etc but yes unfortuantely a wet day in store. Feel free to get back to use in a day or two to see if anything has changed!

Constant windy days

Hi great to see an interactive weather site. Please can you explain why it has been so windy over the last month especially. Doesn't seem as warm as it was this time last year and I was wondering what the prediction is for this summer. thanks

Hi there - thanks for your

Hi there - thanks for your message and support!  We've had a late spring this year in part due to a developing El Nino weather pattern. El Nino's tend to place highs out in the Tasman and we are on the edge of them - where it's windier.  We get more West to South West winds which, in Auckland and other western areas, is cloudier and a little cooler. For eastern areas it's hotter and drier.  Winds should ease further in the next week or so - with summer perhaps drier than average in Auckland.

Cheers

Summer

Thanks, Im hoping summer turns out to be a beaut!

Waiheke on Fri, 5 Dec pm

Hi there,

Hail, thunder set to batter North Island - NZHerald

Just a query about the latest article on the NZHerald website.

It states Hail & thunder set to batter the top half of the north island - yet your site mentions a heavy shower, and metservice thunderstorm outlook doesn't even have Auckland & north of Auckland in the low risk category?

Hi there - no idea sorry, we

Hi there - no idea sorry, we certainly didn't give them that advice - we talked about one specific shower around 1:30 to 2:30 for Auckland city and Hamilton/Waikato. That was it. Assuming they have misread the MetService thunderstorm outlook and watches or taken our forecast out of context. We wish the Herald's newsroom would contact us more often when writing weather news stories as incorrect reporting gives both us and MetService headaches!!

- Phil

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply :)

Was definitely a bit confused after reading their article. Maybe they got confused over the thunder you were referring to from Brisbane - sure looked like a big storm!

Cheers

No worries! We just tell

No worries! We just tell people to double check with both MetService and WeatherWatch.co.nz if confused by news stories, it usually clarifies things fairly quickly.  Agree re: Brisbane, looked major!

Sensational headlines

Yet another case of the media writing sensational headlines when they are not appropriate.

cloudy with a spell of rain

cloudy with a spell of rain love it, looking at my window at this very moment and its absolutly bucketing down, maybe if we had a dictator like kim jung un you weather guys may just have more of an insentive to get the weather right for a change. why do i bother even checking

You need some couch time.

You need some couch time.

So, our forecast is 100%

So, our forecast is 100% accurate then - it's cloudy and raining.  We don't provide specific individual forecasts for every person in the country so "cloudy with a spell of rain" means it should be cloudy with a period of rain this morning - what was so incorrect about that?. We're a free service - so if you dont like us, don't check us!  Pretty easy really!

agree

with  admin,  Your team are the only ones who are not afraid to call it. The only weather site I truely trust.

Next saturday

Hi there,

Any predictions on the weather for next Saturday 6th?

Hi there

Not at this stage sorry, the weather is looking fairly changeable then so best not to say much now as naturally it will change in the next day or two.

Best to come and ask 5 or 6 days out if possible :)

Weather in Bombay, Auckland

Thanks J

Hi there JBy the looks of

Hi there J

By the looks of things there could be a few showers on Friday afternoon then mostly clearing by about 4pm. It's not to say conditions will be totally dry from then onwards, there still may be the odd shower about but overall it should be mostly dry. Sunny spells will start to break through from midday.

Winds will be from the west or southwest around 25 km/h. A high around 18 to 19 degrees.

Hope that helps! If you need any more info please write us another message :)

Cheers!

G'day thereAt this stage both

G'day there

At this stage both days look like having cloudy spells and a few sunny breaks at times, west to southwest breezes. Perhaps the chance of a light shower moving through at times too. The majority of the time is looking dry but a pesky shower or two can't be ruled out now and then.

About it at this stage! :)

Waiheke Island Weather

What's likely to be the difference in the weather on Waiheke Island (if any) compared to Auckland this Sunday?

Nothing too much, perhaps an

Nothing too much, perhaps an early clearing shower then cloud breaks to sunny spells towards midday. Southwesterly winds, winds may be a tad lighter then in Auckland itself.

And there you go! :)

Is this typical NZ Spring ?

I'm visiting NZ from California and Thru-Tramping the Te Arraroa trail from Cape Reinga to Bluff. Currently nursing a very bad sore throat in Hamilton- no doubt from Tramping in the rain, cold and high winds earlier in the week. So far I've walked 800K of your beautiful country. Everyone has been saying this is not a "usual" NZ Spring and can't remember a Spring with weather this inclement.  Is this a typical NZ Spring ? What are the chances of this weather spilling right into summer ? 

Sorry to hear about the sore

G'day there, looking mostly

G'day there, looking mostly cloudy with northwesterly winds. Should be fairly resonable, the only hiccup being later in the evening a few showers could start to move in so hopefully they just hold off enough for the concert to run it's course. But taking a jacket / unbrella would not be unwise. :)

Hi there the App still reads 35k winds tonight :/

webpage vs App

I have noticed the same in the past. The words might be the same but the numbers are different. There have been some instances where the words might say "light winds" but the numbers say 35 kph. Can be confusing.

Hi guysGot this reply on

Hi guys

Got this reply on Wednesday from our tech man.

"All I can think is one of the sources (app or website) was cached for the user.
The way to find out is that the website displays the date/time of when the page
is loaded in the top right by the main navigation menu. The app on the Weather Forecast screen has the date/time the data was refreshed underneath the
temperatures.
Either that, or an update to a forecast was made on the website and the
user hadn't refreshed the app to get the latest. The refresh button recently
added on the iOS version allows the user to refresh for the latest forecast. The
same refresh button is in the latest Android update (but due to another
unforeseen last-minute bug this version hasn't been released to the public yet)."


Hopefully this latest version will be released soon if you use an Android based system so you can refresh forecasts when you like to see the latest updates.

Seasonal

Hi Team

 

First off, keep p the exfelent work!

Are you able to give an idea of what you thik (seasonaly) what we can expect this summer?

Warmer, wetter than average etc

Kind Regards

 

Bob

Hi Bob - thanks very much for

Hi Bob - thanks very much for the kind feedback!  So far our feeling this summer is that it will be late starting for South Islanders and up in Auckland tthese regular strong winds of late should start to ease over the next 2 weeks (not saying Dec will be calm, but should be calmer than Nov).  As for summer overall - looks to be a bit cloudier and less humid in the north and west of NZ and drier and hotter in the north east, east and inland.  Auckland should be a little less humid with more westerlies and perhaps slightly cooler evenings. We'll have a better idea in a couple more weeks once we can clearly see the spring pattern moving away and the new early summer one emerging.

Cheers

What about rainfall? With the

What about rainfall? With the payout so low we can't afford another drought. Thanks
Keep up the good work.

Wind this evening

Hi Aaron,

Any idea of what the wind will do on the harbour between 5 and 8 this evening. Metservice thinks 30 gusting 40 but my experience is that they always overstate it.

Thanks 

Paul

Hi there30 km/h gusting 40

Hi there

30 km/h gusting 40 km/h? I would say that is fairly on the money, infact perhaps even gusting up to 45 or 50 km/h with average wind speeds getting up to 35 to 40 km/h at times. It's a farily chunky system moving through.

Right in close winds may be lighter then as you go further out winds pick up.

Cheers
Aaron 

Yachtie speak

Aaron, its knots not kmh, can convert mentally or emotionally to something so modern, I still think of wind in beaufort!

Regards

Paul

Hi PaulAhh I see, would be

Hi Paul

Ahh I see, would be handy if you could have stated that in your first question re knots or km/h as I'm a bit blind as to your experience or what you intended to do with that information etc.

But yes that would make sense as I thought if it was km/h it was a little on the low side. Perhaps getting up to 40 knots might be overdoing it as you say however.

Cheers
Aaron 

Sailing

will it be okay to go sailing tomorow?????????

Hi thereI'm no yachtie so the

Hi there

Perhaps a little vague of a question, I presume you mean Auckland out on the Hauraki Gulf. And I'm not sure on the boat size you intend to sail and what requirments various boats can handle to start with.

Suffice to say I'm no yachtie so the best I can do is give you weather information re wind speed then you will have to take that and plan accordingly.

Northeasterly winds pick up during the morning starting out around 5-10 knots then lifting to 15-20 knots by midday. Winds then change northwest early afternoon 25 knots. Gusts will be 5 to 10 knots higher then the speeds listed above.

As for the weather re will it rain etc please look at our forecasts above :D

Cheers
Aaron
