Hi Hamish, the maps are

Hi Hamish, the maps are updated every few hours but there are generally two main updates per day - before dawn and again early evening. Our local forecasts by TWC are updated every 15 minutes from the Watson Super Computer, but at this stage our maps are not part of that.

forecast for Otaki Beach

Hi guys - love your work! Any idea what the forecast is likely to be in Otaki Beach next weekend? We need to decide whether to book a bach for a weekend away! Many thanks

Hi there - next weekend is

Hi there - next weekend is too far out sorry, keep an eye on our 10 day forecast for Otaki. Next weekend's weather will show up later this week. Click here to view.

Otaki Beach

Sorry I meant this coming weekend - your site says its looking fine but the Metservice has it as raining all from Friday through to Waitangi Day - wondering why the big difference

If we were the same we would

If we were the same we would have no reason to exist :) You'd have to ask them why the difference, all our data suggests mainly dry with perhaps a few showers. It is a messy forecast heading towards Waitangi day - we're not really sure where the downpours will be and where the dry will dominate.  Let us know which was more accurate - we're always keen to learn and be better. The forecasts for Otaki are updated every 15 minutes using the best possible data to hand. It can always change (especially with a tropical low coming in) so keep an eye on the forecast and our rain maps too.

Humidity in Auckland

I always use your site for weather forecasts. Thanks for making it available, but I have a real problem I hope you can advise me about: I am staining outdoor furniture and directions state it must be used in under 70% humidity. Will that ever occur in Auckland (south-east area)?

Hi there - yes it should drop

Hi there - yes it should drop into the 60s today. Humidity peaks at night and mornings so you often find once the sun burns the morning cloud away the humidity levels start to drop. It will be borderline but we do expect humidity levels into the 60s today and tomorrow. Very humid on Thursday. So hopefully the next two or three days will work for you. Middle of the day/early afternoon is often the best. You actually made us realise we don't have more humidity info in our 10 day forecasts so we'll look into adding that also in our next update :)

Cheers and thanks for the support!
Philip Duncan

Thanks

WOW!!! Thanks so much!!!

Temp reading car verses online

I have an in-car thermometer that tells me the outside temperature. It is always 2 -3 degrees higher than the temperature given by the media or any that I find online. Why is this?

Could be giving you a

Could be giving you a slightly false reading, it's hard to say. The road could be heating up boosting the temperature a little? A proper temperature reading is usually taken from inside a Stevenson screen (Google it) for accurate measurements.

Super moon

Hi, what are the weather predictions for "super moon" viewing and when is it expected in our part of the world.a

36°????

At 5.02 in Hamilton..do yo mean 26? Not 36?

Was that the air temperature

Was that the air temperature or humidex?

Humidex

Hello. Just wondering what the humidex is. Side note, keep up the great work!! You guys are awesome.

Hey! The Humidex is the

Hey! The Humidex is the temperature + humidty = what it feels like. This is developed by the Canadian Government that, unlike NZ, provides open data to help the public and not just the biggest and richest corprotations that Niwa and MetService only focus on. Your taxes fund MetService and NIWA that do not provide data like this. 

Cheers :)
WW

I like the update, however

I like the update, however the humidex seems to increase the temperature too much for temps below 20c - humidity doesn't seem to make it feel that much warmer. I understand it's in beta, just a suggestion :p

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the feedback. The formula was created by the Canadian Government and while scientific it is also subjective. More importantly, the data it is based on. Some personal weather stations may not be as fine tuned as we'd like. So the beta version is to basically monitor reliable sites with other ones and see where it all lies. Feels like temperatures are always a bit controversial - but we figure Canada is one of the most sensible nations on earth and they've been using the Humidex for over half a century. Appreciate the feedback and we look forward to more comments over the coming months. We'll probably switch if off again around April.

Cheers!

Thunderstorms dunedin

Hi there...do you guys predict thunderstorms for dunedin city today and/or tomorrow? Or are they forecast more inland like central otago for example??

Tropical storm

Hi Im just wondering how close is the tropical storm is going to be near auckland. Thankyou

Hi there, at this stage it

Hi there, at this stage it looks like any storm that drifts towards NZ will remain well out in the Tasman Sea, then weakens as it reaches NZ. It's more likely to cross the South Island than Auckand at this stage but there's a fair amount of uncertainty about the set up for the end of next week and next weekend - so keep an eye on our updates as we fine tune the details.

Cheers

WW

Thank you

Individual by individual I have campaigned to move family and friends (and indeed total strangers) from the Metservice to Weather Watch based entirely upon the reliability of your forecasts. And now it's even better! Thanks for being consistent and genuinely caring about the quality of work you do - it's the reason I trust you.

Hi there - wow what a lovely

Hi there - wow what a lovely message to get on a Friday afternoon :) Thank you so much - we HUGELY appreciate that. We've always believed in word of mouth as being our best way to grow when up against such aggressive Government competitors MetService and NIWA (unlike any other Government forecaster in the entire first world). So thank you! We aim to make some big positive changes this year too as we continue to grow our services at no expense to the tax payer.

Cheers and have a great weekend!

Improvements

I have a question , do you notice any good things from upgrading to new system ? Like something the older couldnt do or was good at it . I would love to know

Hi there, Wunderground was

Hi there, Wunderground was bought out by IBM and The Weather Company last year and they share a lot of similar data but Wunderground is an old system that isn't making use of the IBM Watson Super Computer which is the smartest weather super computer on earth. Wunderground is also having increasing technical problems due to the focus being on the future TWC brand.  So our new forecasts are like Wunderground but with much higher resolution and much better understanding of your local geography which impacts the weather. We have work to do to improve the icons (too often it shows a rain cloud when really it's a sunny day with the chance of a shower - we will fix that in time). Otherwise the data is far superior, especially wind directions, % of rain and likely temperature ranges. We've been using it internally for a very long time to produce all of our news content and it rarely lets us down. It's not perfect though - no data is - but it's definitely an upgrade and proven (by IBM) to be more accurate than the two Government forecasters in New Zealand.

Kind regards

WW

App and website different

You app says 31.2 but your website says 27 for Raglan. Why the difference?

Hi there, the app is most

Hi there, the app is most likely finding the nearest location to you whereas the website may be finding the main one in Raglan. It's all the same feed so there shuoldn't be any difference to the data.

Kind regards
WW

WOW you made the switch

Heeeeeyyy WW Team You guys made the switch to The Weather Company. AWESOME!!!! It all looks great and I love the fact that The Weather Company predictions don't look so evil for Dunedin. Here's to the New You. WW is still the most accurate weather forecasters in NZ. Take care and congrats Dee

Hi Dee, thanks so much for

Hi Dee, thanks so much for the support, glad you like the changes!! We have a few teething problems today and tomorrow as we finish the shift - so there may be some gaps in the data at times, but hopefully all should be smooth sailing by the weekend. It's great to have The Weather Company as an official business partner and using the world's most powerful weather super computer we hope there will be a gradual increase in forecast accuracy beyond what we've achieved in years prior.

Kind regards and thanks again for the supportive message :)

Auckland current conditions

Is it possible to get a more accurate weather station for current conditions in Auckland. The current Fanshawe Street one is badly over-reading - showing 30 degrees at 9.30am.

Hi there - we are working on

UPDATED REPLY
Hi there - this weather station has now been removed from our observations.

Weather in the South

Hi Team..Amazing weather in Dunedin yesterday..right through till sunset (with photos on the beach at Tomahawk, at 9.30 - amazing)..despite the forecast..& swimming at St Kilda at 6..many swimming.!) A note about the impending upgrade..bring it on.- the forecast for Dunedin from Wunderground this last year has been chllenging, because it is always based in Patetonga - do you know where that is..? It is in the middle of what we regard as party of Central Otago, near Ranfurly - really part of the Silverpeaks area. Not very accurate, to be honest. Looking forward to the upgrade, therefore.! ..And I noticed the article from the ODT, you have linked. Odd about how important NIWA thinks it is..and always has - (remember the staff member who 'was let go' because he kept articulating concerns of the doom facing us from 'climate change'.) Feel for you guys with the bureaucracy that has been rampant in Wellington.. hopefully a change is in the wind. Here's to a very good year ahead, and a very blessed rest of summer for the team there. Cheers, from here..daryl.

Hi Daryl, thanks for your

Hi Daryl, thanks for your comments. Yes the heat in Dunedin last night was quite something, saw temperatures in the late 20s as of 9:30pm which is pretty remarkable! Yes our new data means Dunedin will have even more accurate forecasts. While we fixed that bug they had with the incorrect inland location it didn't apply to every Dunedin forecast - the new data we have is very much perfectly focused on Dunedin City.

Yes it's painful that we all collectively tax fund and own Niwa and MetService yet neither has open data (in other words, data we all fund being accessible to everyone that funded it). Thankfully MBIE just completed an official independent review that 100% backed up our complaints over the past several years about NZ's awful third world weather set up. Now we just need the new Government to actually act on it. More red tape ahead!
Cheers and thanks for your support, it means a lot to us :)

The weather - funnily enough!

Welcome back Duncan, and exciting to see new things on the horizon! Any idea when this humidity will dissipate please - in Auckland!

Phil must be busy..... He's

Phil must be busy..... He's always been around doing stories etc, the videos have just re-started again that's all :)

Have a read of this post I did a few days ago just below:

"The best bet is to do this, go here: http://nz.bsch.com.au/stormcast.html?ops=gfs::::mslp:null:0

Using your mouse, left click on "COMPLETE CHARTS LIST" in the top left hand corner of the new zealand map area. In the box that comes out of there then find "Dew Point" (in the middle box towards the bottom). Hover over the "2m" option and left click with your mouse.

Once you are in those maps you'll see lots of different colour shadings representing different dewpoint temperatures. Using the dates and times on the left hand side, click the date / time you want to check out. Anything on the map below a 15 degree dewpoint is starting to look more comfortable, a dewpoint of 10 degrees or less is not going to feel muggy at all really. So for Auckland for example it's going to feel muggy for a fair while yet.....

So there you go, now you can find out for yourself! :)"

No more Wunderground

Thank goodness you are moving away from Wunderground. They have been the only downside of your site and it can only get better without their involvement. Looking forward to better things.

Agreed!

Hi I"m really happy to see that your systems are getting upgrade . I can't wait to see it . I have a question is there going to be new things seen on new website ? Thanks

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the supportive message :) It will take time but yes we will be adding new features to the website and our app this year. (or potentially a new, second, app). In the first instance our website and app will have forecast upgrades which are hugely significant as they will be 24/7 updating to improve in places where they got it wrong, it's very exciting new software thanks to IBM.

28th January 2018

Hi there, How is the weather looking for Sunday 28th January 2018? We have an upcoming weather that day and we are nervous about the weather! Thank you. Kind regards, Duncan

HI there Duncan, assuming

HI there Duncan, assuming you're talking about northern NZ or Auckland? If so, easterlies and mostly dry appear to be in the forecast for this weekend. We'll be fine tuning it even more over Tuesday and Wednesday (as with half the country on holiday there will be a lot of demand for a long weekend forecaster for northern NZ and Nelson).

Cheers
WW

Hi there, Sorry, yes your

Hi there, Sorry, yes your assumptions are correct. I am talking about Auckland. Fingers crossed it is dry! Thank you.
