No, wouldn't expect any fog. It will be cloudy however with the odd shower turning to rain in the afternoon.

Weather for Riding AK -Waikato

Hi WW - group of friends and I are looking to get in maybe two (2) separate m/bike rides AK - south over the coming weekend.

Ride 1 - to Waikaretu (sth of Pt Waikato & nth of Raglan) & return same day. Times 2pm- 5/6pm.

Ride 2 - to Waitomo Caves area & return same day. Time all day 8am - onwards.

Had a good look at your interactive maps and my understanding is that there shouldn't be rain until late on Sunday 27 May (6pm onwards?).

However Sat 26th shows 10% chance precepitation. Any idea of time of day for AK area and will that rain turn up down Waikaretu area during day?

Any advice gratefully received by us.

Thanks

Bikie

Hi there, wow sounds pretty

Hi there, wow sounds pretty active!.  Yep for the most part it will be dry, slight risk of a brief light shower, something I doubt would significantly affect your travel plans.  Sunday the risk for rain starts off at 20%, shifts to 40% during the day and 70% by evening - timing of rain in advance can be tricky but based on the data it looks as though the weather will be mostly dry during the days.

Fog patches

A year ago today was when we had the bad "pea soup fog" when I saw the patches about I was wondering if it would be the same.
I remember also, the day we had condensation on all windows appear inside, warmer out than inside early in the day.

Frost on neighbours lawn and ice bits on car today.

I think I remember that day

I think I remember that day was early june,it rose in the morning to about 21c at 10am when it was 12 or 13 earlier that morning after a warm front.

Yep we're at that time of

Yep we're at that time of year where the sea surface temps are still highish and the nights are cold - prefect recipe for fog around Auckland - another risk tomorrow and Saturday too.  And yes - a light frost this morning too - less likely tomorrow and even less likely on Friday.

Maximum overnight temperatures

Just a quick suggestion, rather than have overnight maximum temperature listed, wouldn't it be more relevant to list the overnight minimum? (perhaps more relevant for the cooler months)

I would assume that most people would be more interested in how cold it's going to be overnight so they can prepare accordingly....woolly socks...electric blanket...etc.

Keep up the good work.

Alternatively if you have

Alternatively if you have both the minimum and maximum projections, why not let us have both :-)

Hi there - yes we are

Hi there - yes we are removing the "max" from overnight.  It was part of a trial that just didn't really work!  We are going to bring back a temperature range for overnight lows...as sometimes it can be -1 while at the same time +5 in other parts of Auckland.  So we're going to do a temperature spread.  We don't support breaking Auckland up into regions either - as even the North Shore can have an extreme range of temps based on localised sea breezes and topography.  This will be far more accurate as generally speaking most people know if they live in an area prone to frosts etc.

Does that sound good?

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Hooray !! I see 0% precipitation for Tue, Wed, Thu

Finally something to look forward to next week :-)

YEAH RIGHT...

...don't hold your breath...it will change dramatically!!

OMG it's freezing tonight.

OMG it's freezing tonight. Couldn't get to sleep I was so cold and I had to stand under a really hot shower for AGES just to get warm.

Do you think this is going to be a colder winter than last year?

walks

could we go for a long walk tomorrow with out getting wet

Still the risk of a couple

Still the risk of a couple isolated showers, more so at the end of the day - otherwise a mostly dry day!

Washing

Hopfeully today (Sat 19 March) will be an OK day for washing in Auckland? We've already had one shower so I hope thats it for the rest of the day!

washing

Good morning,

Showers seem scattered over Auckland this morning with hits and misses in places. Should gradually ease up throughout the day with longer dry spells.Hopefully the breeze should help dry the washing later as well :)

Auckland

A beautiful clear Auckland night until heading west into a few spits of rain.

Looks much better in Auckland

Looks much better in Auckland Tues-friday at this stage,it be good to finally get rid of the nasty SW flow by sunday.

Wind speed

We've had a couple of squalls tonight in Meadowbank, I thought the roof might lift at one point.

Also a couple of times this evening we've had precipitation so loud on the roof that I couldn't hear my children talking (not very quietly!). Rain has never been loud on the roof in this house before so I wonder if it was hail. It was too dark out to see properly.

All these weather prediction questions.....

Wow... Its not enough to have a an awesome and free website to use? You all want personalised predictions as well??? Be happy with what you have and give these guys a break :)

Rain in Auckland?

Hi there, I live in Hamilton and was wondering if it was worth taking a punt and driving through to Auckland for my sons soccer game this morning at 10am .... the game is dependant on rain? How's Auckland doing this morning? Hamilton started off with blue skies but now overcast and nippy:-)

Hi there - sorry we check

Hi there - sorry we check comments every hour or two so this was a bit too short notice for us!  Hamilton and Auckland sharing similar weather today, long sunny spells then a big heavy shower and those cold winds!

Cheers!

gb trip

hi would you have any idea when a trip from clevedon river to great barrier would be best in the next few weeks? im guessing the low that has just passed would keep the sea choppy on that route through the weekend. thanks

Hi there - it depends on how

Hi there - it depends on how much time you need to do it.  There is a high coming in next week from around Monday to Thursday, but it may not be perfectly settled.  As we head into winter the sunny spells will be shorter lived.  We'll have a general June prediction out in about 10 days too.

Cheers

WW

p.s  Keep an eye on our Maps link at the top of the page, has wind, rain and swell maps for anywhere in the world!

Typical,the SW winds

Typical,the SW winds continue,well into the weekend now.

looking outside and there is

looking outside and there is blue sky no thunder in auckland will it miss us thanks

Hi there - an active line of

Hi there - an active line of heavy rain formed late this morning from Northland to Waikato - but it was more to Auckland's east so only grazed the city with a few spits of rain and dark threatening clouds.

It's now tracking away from Auckland to the south east so we have blue sky (note our forecast changed a couple of hours ago to reflect this, others are still saying thundery rain this afternoon).

However, there are bands of rain yet to come in - the next one is expected this evening and another two or three overnight and into Tuesday morning.  So long dry spells then the potential for thunder and heavy rain, then another long dry spell etc.

Cheers

70% of Precip

Good morning,
Can you explain to me what Precip is ?, i see it come up alot.
Regards
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer - it's short for

Hi Jennifer - it's short for 'precipitation' and it's used because we don't always know how that precipitation will fall - as rain, hail, snow, showers, drizzle etc - or sometimes all of the above!  So that one word is best to sum it all up. 

Cheers

- WW

awesome thanks for that :-)

awesome thanks for that :-)

Any dry days in Auckland next week?

Hi,
Wondering whether next week there will be any dry days to look forward to in Auckland :-)

Try after christmas for a run

Try after christmas for a run of fine days,from here on till then a couple a month.

Guidance suggests late next

Guidance suggests late next week (Friday and Saturday) may be dry at this stage, it is a while away however.

Cheers WW

We have SW right till friday

We have SW right till friday according to metservice,I believe it too,like 10 years ago May was like this.

Always note how inaccurate

Always note how inaccurate the 5th day is,the sun icon will change to clouds and SWers undoubtably.(its always or almost a sun icon)

Which just goes to show how

Which just goes to show how much our forecast team add to the raw data - and this is why we don't do a 10 day forecast for any centre in the country, the long range models still need more work.

ECMWF shows its will be SW

ECMWF shows its will be SW again in Auckland mid next week again for another extended period...it sucks.

Dont think thunderstorms

Dont think thunderstorms under a weak ridge,it'll be just cloudy then.

 Hi there, just raw data in

 Hi there, just raw data in for those days at this stage, we are waiting until early afternoon for some extra data. Agree re: Sunday but there is thunder potential for early next week thanks to a big Southern Ocean low which will spread across the entire nation. Check for our next forecast update around 1pm

Scundgy Auckland forecast

Scundgy Auckland forecast coming up.....Tomorrow will be rain,lighter winds wednesday,then wind and showers thurs-sat inclusive and then a overcast somewhat calmer day sunday,then a return to rain mon/tues next week....

Paihia Country Rock Festival

Hi Philip
Heading over to Paihia at the weekend for the annual Rock festival which is very much a outdoor event i.e dancing in the streets.
Is it too much to hope for the beautiful weather of the past few weeks to continue

Hi there - at this stage the

Hi there - at this stage the forecast is looking pretty good actually - mostly sunny, a few clouds and a less than 10% chance of showers.  The pattern later this week and into Saturday is still a little messy, so feel free to check back for updates or click on the Whangarei forecast on the right hand side of the page.
