Hey Dave, yes definitely a

Hey Dave, yes definitely a feeling of Autumn in the air although we do still have more humid days in the forecast by the looks of it. A fast change to Autumn this year, just a fast change to summer last year and spring too. Seems to be the pattern we're in at the moment. Looks like a lot of dry weather for NZ next two weeks with plenty of easterlies for northern NZ (and northern NZ like Fiordland are the two regions with the highest chance of rain/downpours/showers next two weeks by the looks of it).

Saturday 17/03

Hi Team, How are we looking for this date in auckland and cricket? I notice a bit of rain lurking?

Hi there, take a look at our

Hi there, take a look at our latest weather video as it addresses this possible rain. It's basically the leftovers of a small tropical storm. May produce a few big downpours here and there - but dry spells in the mix too. Probably won't be able to be more specific until closer to Saturday due to the hit and miss nature of this.

Cheers
WW

Thank you

As an Weather enthusiast holidaying from overseas I’m glad I found this site, I had been using metservice to try and find information but it was so complicated. At least the current rainfall is easy to find on here.

Great to hear! Thanks very

Great to hear! Thanks very much for the feedback :) Enjoy your holiday too - hope the weather is playing its part.

HOLA

It's 08.30 and you guys have a detailed update on Hola. Whereas our taxpayer funded Metservice is still dishing up yesterdays news, their last update 21.32. How come you guys are always on the ball whilst Metservice always seems to be way behindl?

Tongue in cheek.

Was this a major event in New Zealand? Sorry I live in the South Island and it was lovely, sunny and warm today. I hope this cyclone hitting 'New Zealand' wasn't too bad. Metservice indicated some rain and strong winds for the upper North Island but not a cyclone hitting New Zealand. Did they in fact get it right and there was no need for panic updates for a bit more rain and wind in Auckland than normal?

We're not sure sorry,

We're not sure sorry, especially as MetService is each year given 25 million dollars of tax funding to provide public warnings and services. Because WeatherWatch.co.nz is independent of them we use other global sources for data which allows us to provide more detailed updates and more often. Please write to Minister Megan Woods if you have concerns about MetService and cheers for your support!

Hola

Thanks for your excellent reporting and analysis. Light years ahead of Metservice!

Absolutely right, and you

Absolutely right, and you don't get the media hype as well.

My wife is wondering whether

My wife is wondering whether to risk getting the ferry into town from beachlands tomorrow morning? Looks like the winds pick up in the afternoon and she may get stuck!

Hi there,It's hard to know

Hi there,
It's hard to know how ferries will operate tomorrow, we imagine there will be some cancellations but every service is different and has their own operating standards. Latest wind map shows a higher risk for gales in the morning (each update is changing though, due to the close proximity of the centre of the low tomorrow). Sorry we can't be of more help!

Cheers
WW

Tomorrow morning:

(Gale force is around 34 knots / in red)

Cyclone Hola

On the wind map nullschool at 11am sunday finding some nice deep red areas with 130kph plus winds is hola increased to cat 3 again and potentially getting a little more angry towards nz.

By the time it gets to NZ

By the time it gets to NZ Hola will loose it's tropical cyclone status so will drop below cat 1 although that is more a technicality, it will still retain winds equal to a cat 1 for some offshore islands etc.

WW

Reading NZH website this

Reading NZH website this morning, Metservice meteorologist April Clark said there would be heavy rain and severe gales above 90km/h, with even stronger gusts of up to 180km/h when the remnants of Hola reach NZ. 180 km/h ? That sounds a bit ridiculous when JTWC forecasts maximum gusts of 50 knots (or 93 km/h) by Monday AM and it will be an ex-cyclone by then. Do you reckon 180 km/h gusts are likely?

180 km/h might be pushing it,

180 km/h might be pushing it, that sounds more like a theoretical upper limit, so it's not to say winds couldn't happen up to that speed but really upper limit stuff. But gusts of only 93 km/h may be under baking it for offshore eastern parts of the upper North Island like Great Barrier Island etc. Gusts upwards of 140 to 150 km/h would be our pick and have a fair chance of happening.

WW

Hola

It is so refreshing to read your calm, rational and interesting commentary on this event compared to the fearmongering hype served up in some of the mainstream media who seem intent on causing mass panic. Keep up the good work guys.

here! here!! great work yet

here! here!! great work yet again guys!

Hi there, thank you both for

Hi there, thank you both for your supportive words! We try very hard to be accurate, to be passionate, but also to keep the hype down and the facts first and foremost... even if that means a headline that doesn't give us as many clicks.

Thanks for your support, helps us know we are on the right track!

Bay of Islands

Hi there, Can you let me know your thoughts on the weather this coming Monday-Friday for Bay of Islands (12th-16th)? At this time, do you think the anticipated storm will have much of an impact? Cheers

Hi there Monday looks

Hi there

Monday looks definitely set to get some heavy rain and gale force winds. Tuesday is drier with sunny spells, winds strong from the southwest at first then easing from afternoon.

Wednesday and Thursday look relatively calmer, a mix of sun and cloud with southerly qaurter winds. A shower or two possible later on Thursday then on Friday afternoon southeasterlies freshen bringing some rain.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers

Auckland Forecast

Hi Guys, The forecast for Auckland is changing by the hour. You previously mentioned a big high rolling in after the remnants of the last storm. Now you are talking about a big low that is not moving anywhere fast. How can this be missed? What happened to the high?

Hi there, the low was in the

Hi there, the low was in the forecast last week for northern NZ but was expected to form just east of Northland, instead it formed just west - a small change to the models but has a significant impact on our weather. There's no forecaster on earth that is 100% accurate, the highs and lows are moving and changing shape daily and we do our best to be as accurate as possible about their placement. The high is here and is large and covers parts of NZ but basically this low has given the high pressure "a puncture" which is why the forecast has changed. It's a sign that Autumn is moving in too. The Chatham Islands is under this ridge of high pressure until Monday but not the mainland, we're now just a tiny bit too far west. 

Cheers

Saturday In Auckland

hi, I see a similar question was asked on this but just wondering if Satuday is now a sunny/cloudy day in Auckland? Dont mind the odd shower but as long as the main part of the day is dry. Thanks Phil/Aaron.

G'day there Latest update is

G'day there

Latest update is picking showers to develop in the morning, there should be some dry spells at times during the day but showers now and then also. Winds from the north.

Apologies it isn't exactly what you are after.

Saturday weather in Wellington

Hi There I'm organising an outdoor event on Saturday 2pm-10pm - hows the weather looking for that period, I'm unsure if the rain showers forecast will be a big issue or not as we don't have a marque and a lot of things including music are outside. Thanks for your help Kate

For the most part it looks

For the most part it looks mainly dry, the shower risk is fairly minimal, just a low risk for a time early afternoon is what I'm currently seeing.

Being 5 days out this could change up a little but I can't see much drastically changing between now and then but we'll see. Keep an eye on our Wellington forecasts for updates each morning :)

Cheers
Aaron

Thank you for your reply!

Thank you for your reply!

Saturday 3/03

Hi team, Looks like a bit of rain this week. How are we looking for Saturday in Auckland at this stage?

Hi there Looks like morning

Hi there

Looks like morning sunny areas then cloud increasing and isolated showers developing in the afternoon, possibly heavy then clearing in the evening. Being isolated means you may see showers you may not but the risk period will be mid afternoon through till early evening. :)

Chch

I'm taking it the winds are not gonna hit chch.. because they're not here yet..and rain is just "steady" not "torrential"..advise please..also well done to Phil..think he's the only forecaster who actually predicted the "split" in the storm..kudos to him..

Key word being "chance" of

Key word being "chance" of torrential falls, "chance".

Strongest winds weren't meant to hit Chch, they will be out on Banks Peninsula.

Thanks for the comment re Phil, he's much appreciative :)

Aaron

Yes Christchurch missed the

Yes Christchurch missed the worst of the torrential rain (it fell just up the road in Kaikoura instead), very very hard to precisely forecast a low that is splitting apart and reforming while going over a mountain range! Tried to do the best we could. Thanks for the kind words - our data showed the 'split' happening a number of days ago. Quite fascinating watching it happening. The winds may still ramp up on Wednesday AM, but hopefully nothing too extreme.

Cheers
