Auckland on New Years Day

Hi there Any idea of what we can expect to see in Auckland for New Years Day? Thanks

Hi there Currently looks

Hi there

Currently looks anticyclonic, perhaps a mix of sun and cloud with southwesterly winds. It's a while away though so this could well change. You can check things out for yourself here - http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Scroll through the various days, atleast you can tell whether it will be wet or dry.

Cheers
Aaron

Bay of plenty - new year

I know it's still a long way off but how is the BoP looking over new year period? There looks a big system coming off Australia and heading across the Tasman by the looks of it? Cheers Dave

Hi Dave Too far out to know

Hi Dave

Too far out to know yet - but check out Phil's latest weather video which covers the latest maps for New Year's Eve.

At this stage there may be westerlies, if that pans out that will be a good direction for a dry and mild BoP for Dec 31 and perhaps first few days of Jan. We'll be able to lock something in by Boxing Day, maybe earlier.

Cheers
WW

Holiday period

Hi Phil Merry Xmas to you and helpers. Quite unusual that the tropics appear to be fairly quiet over the holiday period meaning holiday makers won't need to pack up & go home this year. If the models are right that is. Thank you for all your hard work this year and all the very best for 2018. Cheers Dave

H Dave,We're seeing an

H Dave,
We're seeing an increase in more Southern Ocean weather at the moment so that shouldn't affect Northerners so much but Southerners may have a bit of an unsettled week next week. The tropics directly north of us are being influenced and dried out by the big highs in the NZ area (to our north and north west at times). There's a chance our dry summer could swing very wet should these highs fail to cover all of NZ (they have reduced already since November which is why we're now getting these wetter systems coming in for some this week and next).

Kind regards, have a great Christmas and wishing you a great 2018 also!

Hunua needs some rain

Hi team. Love the site and the accurate forecasts. Never thought id be saying this after the winter we have just had but we could do with some rain in hunua. Are there any significant falls on the horizon? Cheers Daniel

Hmm, perhaps not till towards

Hmm, perhaps not till towards the end of this month. Please take a look at our rain maps, you'll see exactly what we are seeing in terms of any potential rain coming up :)

Lightning tracker

Hi you may have received this question before but I this evening I went onto the lightning tracker and was curious to see a vast difference between the two lightning trackers, live tracker had around 26 strikes and skytracker 114 and both had different locations for many of the strikes. Why is this and which one is more accurate? Thanks

The two trackers run off two

The two trackers run off two different types of detection hence have different results. The live tracker would probably be a tad more accurate. Both trackers are run by enthusiasts mostly and have no input from us apart from the fact we display them here.

Cheers

Waiheke weather

Hi, just wondering if you have a forecast for Waiheke at all? Specifically Friday 15 December. Cheers

G'day there Looks like mostly

G'day there

Looks like mostly sunny weather, some cloud late afternoon or evening brings the low risk of an isolated shower. Light northeasterlies tend southwest later in the day. Afternoon temperatures in the low twenties. Hope that helps!

October November 2017 forecasts in Gisborne

Hi Are you able to help me. I live in Australia and own a house in Gisborne. I need to find a day in October or November when there were severe winds in Gisborne as our roof has been damaged but the tennant didnt tell us. Are you able to tell me how I could go about finding that info. Ive surfed the internet but no luck thus far

Hi there, NZ has no open data

Hi there, NZ has no open data unlike any other western country on earth so we cannot provide you with tax funded observations. Your best bet is to email NIWA and ask them. Sorry we can't be of more help - we've been fighting the NZ Government on this issue for a decade now.

Kind regards and good luck!

Accurate again!

Thanks Phil A huge day out on the Lawns of Ellerslie Racecourse yesterday...armed with your weather forecast from over 2 weeks ago...accurate again! Cheers WW Forecast Team on Sun, 26/11/2017 - 11:28 Hi Lance,Very early days but Hi Lance, Very early days but latest forecast looks similar to today (mostly cloudy, a few sunny spells, dry). But a rain band (the first one in about a month) is approaching New Zealand the following day. So far out it'll need to be within a week before we can be more detailed. Cheers :) Phil.

Cheers Lance, glad it all

Cheers Lance, glad it all panned out!

Whitianga weather

What's whitianga looking like for the weekend? Trying to decide whether to go camping/beach etc.. Thanks

Hi there, at this stage there

Hi there, at this stage there may be a few drizzle patches in the morning and even the risk of a heavier shower during the day - but overall the forecast looks mostly dry this weekend with a higher chance of downpours on Monday.  All of next week looks dry (other than Monday's risks). Here are our Whitianga forecasts - keep an eye on the % of rain and temperartures more so than the icons (as the icons currently make it look a bit wetter than it will be - and we're addressing improving icons next year).

To day Whitianga forecast here: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/Whitianga 

We manually write detailed forecasts for Tauranga too, which may also be helpful for some extra detail (while not totally the same area the set up is very similar for both this weekend and next week).www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/Tauranga

Saturday 9th from 1-7pm

Thanks Phil Your more detailed hourly chance of rain information is great & changes regularly! What's your thoughts for Saturday in the Ellerslie area 1-7pm, are we likely to be on the lawns under umbrellas giving us shade, or protection from drizzle!? Cheers

Hi there Lance, still looking

Hi there Lance, still looking good. Should be dry with northerlies. :)

Masterton Weather Readings

Hi there, I heard that Masterton weather readings are taken somewhere between Masterton & Carterton which can be quite breezy. We use the Gladstone weather readings as this gives a true indication of what it’s like in town. One news said the high for Masterton for 3 Dec 17 was 28degrees, when it was way hotter than that being 32.4 degrees at 9.15am

Need rain please

East coast of South Island desperately needs rain at lots of it, when’s the next significant downpour coming to the Dunedin area?

Hi there Nothing significant

Hi there

Nothing significant in the pipeline coming up in the next couple of weeks unfortunately, just a shower or two when a few fronts are passing through. Is looking a bit dry at the moment :(

Aaron

Weather for Auckland tomorrow

The useless tv1 weather forecast which is metservice based is predicting rain for tomorrow what are your predictions on your site it says sunny

misinterpreted?

The forecast I saw was 'fine apart from isolated afternoon showers near the city and south, some maybe heavy'. That's not quite the broad brushed 'rain' you mention.

Fair point anonymous "guest"

Fair point anonymous "guest" - but must point out, even that forecast was well off the mark.

Cheers

WW

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the question. Sunday has afternoon downpours forming in both Northland and Waikato (so either side of Auckland). Sea breezes are possible in Auckland, so we may see some afternoon cloud build ups but at this stage we think Auckland will remain dry, or at least mostly dry. We'll be monitoring those downpours that may pop up later in some upper North Island regions in case they drift.

Keep an eye on our hourly forecasts as well - as well as being updates for each hour across the day the forecasts are also updated hourly. Soon, through our new partnership with IBM's super computer "Watson", we'll be updating those forecasts every 15 minutes, which is a first for New Zealand.

Kind regards

Saturday 9th from 1-7pm

Hows it looking for Ellerslie area next Saturday now? Cheers Hi Lance,

Hi Lance - at this stage

Hi Lance - at this stage looking dry with northerlies and warm. That front is looking unlikely to affect you at this stage, it looks look it will be weakening too. Our forecasts cover next Saturday now so keep an eye on the hourly chance of rain we have for then (looks good at the moment!)

Cheers Phil

Definitely raining today

Any chance you could tell me when the torrential rain will stop in Browns Bay

Looks like its stopped for

Looks like its stopped for you now yes? Must have been fairly isolated and moving through, you can see on the radar here: http://www.metservice.com/maps-radar/rain-radar/auckland

Ellerslie for HAROLD Saturday 9 December

You've been accurate for us for many years! Cheers Lance >>>>Hi there, I wish we could help you but it's still too far out! Ask us again 10 to 14 days out from Dec 9 and we can give you a good rough idea :) Cheers - and wow 320+ is a LOT of people, no wonder you want to know the forecast!! -WW

Hi Lance,Very early days but

Hi Lance,
Very early days but latest forecast looks similar to today (mostly cloudy, a few sunny spells, dry). But a rain band (the first one in about a month) is approaching New Zealand the following day. So far out it'll need to be within a week before we can be more detailed. Cheers :)

9 December

Cheers Not looking that flash!

Rain wanted!

Hi Guys, We are now flat out irrigating our crops in Franklin. Are there any depressions offshore that might give us some decent rain , so we might get a break? Cheers

Good morning. Thanks for your

Good morning. Thanks for your update and sorry to hear it's so dry for you. Unfortunately high pressure looks set to dominate for the remainder of November. In December there may be some chances of showers but no signs of a proper front until the second week of December and that may not come as far north as Franklin. We're already hearing from others like you so next week we'll focus more on potential rain makers and what is happening right now/early Dec to hopefully give you a bit more clarity in decision making.

Cheers
WW

Low cloud

Hi Philip, you may call it "wet air without precipitation" but I would call it damn damp. Vegetation is just as wet as if we had had drizzle. What is the cause of the fog/low clouds that makes everything so wet. Thanks Ross Oamaru

Hi there Ross, great local

Hi there Ross, great local update thanks very much. Amongst this large high over NZ we've also had a small area of sinking air pressure in the east. That coupled with a slight easterly flow and the daytime heating further inland is creating for some interesting conditions - especially as the hot weather inland draws in this more humid airflow from the sea in coastal parts of the east. We've seen a lot of fog and low cloud in the mornings and with overnight cooling and calmness all the moisture sinks and settles around the coastal areas - Dunedin had fog and low cloud all yesterday and again this morning. A drizzly calm or foggy morning on a calm day at this time of year can also be a signal of larger cloud build ups with downpours in the afternoon once the daytime heating kicks in, inland. It warms up a little more and dries out a bit further tomorrow by the looks of it where you are.
Kind regards
Philip Duncan

Weekend

Hi Team, Early I know but How are we looking in Auckland for Saturday and Sunday?

Looks pretty good to me,

Looks pretty good to me, mainly settled with anticyclonic conditions. Mostly sunny but some cloud at times especially in the afternoons. Winds are light. High's in the low to mid twenties.

Cheers

Why is it so cold in

Why is it so cold in Whangarei this spring? We had a fire going last night!! ( 18/11/ 17)

Just the way the lows are

Just the way the lows are rolling in, southeasterly airflows and Northland catches it. It should warm up soon enough as summer comes along :)

Next Monday and Tuesday in Mt Cook area

Hi. We plan to do hiking in Mt Cook next Monday or Tuesday. May I know which day is better? I noticed you said there will be afternoon downpour around south island on Tuesday. May I get more information? Thanks!

For safety it is probably

For safety it is probably best to refer to a specific forecast for a mountain area. http://www.metservice.com/mountain/aoraki-mount-cook-national-park

Provided MetService is

Provided their forecast is accurate of course...

But yes - definitely check the tax funded Government forecasts too, at MetService. Always worth checking with a state forecaster when heading into National Parks.
