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.

Temperatures

Hello! Any sign of these hot humid days easing? :)

Depends where you are from

Depends where you are from within New Zealand.

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! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Hauraki Gulf Weather

Hi There, Are you able to give me a bit more an insight in to sun/rain/wind predictions in the Hauraki gulf (between Waiheke and across the firth of Thames) from Saturday to mid next week please? Cheers Anthony

Hi Anthony, you're best to

Hi Anthony, you're best to use our Maps page here as you can zoom in to the area and see rain, wind, swells, temperatures in 3 hour segments across the days for the Gulf and Firth of Thames area.

Looks mostly dry this weekend with NE winds, next week sees a mix of showers/downpours and NE winds easing.

Cheers

Snells Beach

Hi, What do you think the weather is like this weekend in Snells Beach / Kawau? Also the wind, is it going to calm down? We'll be in a tent! Thanks

Hi there, it's looking mostly

Hi there, it's looking mostly dry this weekend but there are rain clouds in Northland tracking by (so a fine line between dry in Auckland and potentially wet north of Snells Beach). Wind-wise we do see the same nor'east wind continuing which won't be overly strong for most, but in a tent it may be a little breezy at times (but not stormy and not as strong as it's been this week).
Hope that helps! Have a great time :)

Weekend weather

Hi guys, looking at Mangawhai over this weekend, what should we expect rain wise?

It's a tough forecast with

It's a tough forecast with high humidity and heavy rain just offshore, yet a chance of sunny and cloudy spells on land. A forecast to keep an eye on as it might change, but for not the weekend looks (hopefully) mostly dry. But there is a disclaimer that the rainband out at sea (closer to Northland) could drift back over land without much notice. Keep an eye on the hourly forecast we have for Managawhai, in particular the hourly % of rain.

Cheers

WW

Please say Sun ;)

Hey Guys, Whats the weather forecast likely to be like next week in Waihi area? Hoping this rain will clear out for a bit so we can enjoy the beach??? Cheers :)

Keep an eye on our Tauranga

Keep an eye on our Tauranga forecasts, they will be very similar if not the same as what Waihi can expect.

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/tauranga

Generally speaking there could be areas of rain in the first half of the week then it msy dry out with more sun on Thursday and Friday. But it's all a we while away and things could change. Keep an eye on the forecasts above :)

Cheers

yet again January is garbage..

Unreal how bad weather Auckland is now in January - out of the first 3 weeks nearly 2 of them will be cloud and wind + showers...apparently right in the middle of "summer" Warm sure - but windy as hell and cloudy...it seems summer is starting later and later - is there any data on this or just 2 fickle summers in a row?

youre right

Get out of Auckland,I have done that a couple of times in January,the lower North Island has had wonderful weather,none of the high winds or the endless cloudy humid nights either but clear sunny days.

What a load of bollocks.

What a load of bollocks. Apart from the storm at the beginning of the year, we have predominantly had sunny hot weather. Looks like a few cloudy windy days now, but nothing as bad as you make out. You mention summer starting later ....have you already forgotten how sunny and hot December was? What did you call that if not Summer? Jeez!

Hi there, welcome to living

Hi there, welcome to living on two islands in the South Pacific and half in the roaring 40s! Our weather is always dictated by just the local weather patterns and all it takes is for a high pressure system to move away and we're very vulnerable to weather like this. Sadly weather data in NZ is a bit of a joke as Government agencies collect it differently (MetService and NIWA) and both make news headlines for various temperatures at various sites. It's why the NZ Government is now formally looking into data and why these public agencies are more focused on making big headlines rather than just providing clean open data that we can all check in on.

Cheers
WW

Hay yea

What’s the weather like for 27 th of Jan in Auckland Thank you

Not sure yet - keep an eye on

Not sure yet - keep an eye on our 10 day forecasts over the next few days and especially the % of rain.

Castlepoint

We are at Castlepoint for the next week and 3 days from today 15th Jan. Our family is considering joining us. I check your site constantly. The weather seems to change so dramatically every time I look. Will we ever actually see a fine day?? Also trying to plan when to break down the tent.

Hi there, what a lovely spot

Hi there, what a lovely spot by the way! Thanks for the question and yes the forecast is certainly a bit messy! Tuesday is a good one - hot and mainly dry. Wednesday also looks fairly OK. But Thursday and Friday may have both wind and rain before improving fast to a hot, sunny, Saturday (unsure if that helps you!).

Details here for Castlepoint, specifically - as one our 1500 forecast locations.

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/Castlepoint - you have hourly forecasts here which can be helpful when you're dealing with timing for rain (more accurate on the day itself too quite often).

Happy New Year and hope you have a fantastic few days (Bring Monopoly!!)
Cheers
WW

Weather forecast prediction

One would wonder with the new technology you could get it right for once. Days of old forecasters were more accurate. And lets NOT say it is because of climate change

Show some gratitude

Why don’t you start your own channel and get t right instead of being a pompous arrogant Pr**k. Easy to be a keyboard warrior but phil and Aaron get it right more than you can count up to. Take your negativity elsewhere.

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your complaint "anonymous". Here's hoping you send your compaint also to NIWA and MetService - as we are 100% free to you, but your taxes pay for them. Assuming because you use us, you're even less impressed with the ones you actually pay for.

Kind regards,
WW - A 100% free service.

Rangitoto walk

We're walking from Rangitoto to the causeway/Motutapu on either Tuesday or Thursday – given that rain is forecast for Wednesday. I understand that Tuesday is windy and Thursday less so, but with more chance of a shower. Which day is your best pick? Michael Smith

Hi there May want to check

Hi there

May want to check out Wednesday again, that heavy rain is now not due till Thursday. Either Tuesday or Wednesday has similar weather, cloudy areas with a light shower or two possible, winds breezy from the northeast, fresh at times. Conditions will be humid and warm with high's in the mid twenties.

You can track the rain yourself here if you like: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Hope that helps!

Auckland summer overnight lows

Hi there, I feel like over the last 2 months Auckland's overnight temps have been warmer than average. I understand that the monopolised nature of weather data in New Zealand makes this difficult, but I feel like every summer Auckland overnight temperatures hover around 16 to 20cm whereas the 'official' data from NIWA etc shoes this peaking at 15.8c in February. So, my question is, do you think this is due to incorrect long run averages (under-reading by several degrees, potential cooler weather station placement etc), or a warmer than average summer? Auckland is certainly living up to it's subtropical billing this summer. Cheers!

Hi there, a great question

Hi there, a great question and not sure if we can clearly answer it. Averages in New Zealand are hard to work out as both NIWA and MetService only have a handful of stations that are public. NIWA has sometimes said Auckland has broken temperature records while MetService didn't agree (as they use different data and sites). This is why we want one public data source for all to use and query. But you're quite right about Auckland being sub-tropical lately. This year we have definitely had an uptick in northerly and north easterly airflows (much more so than last summer). This brings in much higher overnight temperatures and makes the daytime ones feel much warmer too. February is usually when we have our peak heat though, but being two islands in a part of the world with very changeable weather you just never know how the pattern in February may go. No signs of immediate cooling down though - the mugginess is here to stay for a while yet.

Kind regards
Philip Duncan

20th of January 2018 - Napier forecast

Hi there I am having a large gathering at my home in Napier this coming Saturday. Metservice says rain; Weatherwatch says "partly cloudy"... Which one should I rely on? Thanks Karen

Hi there In this case I'm not

Hi there

In this case I'm not sure it's that straight forward. Generally speaking I'm seeing mainly dry conditions for a good portion of the day, hot too. Just later in the afternoon / evening there comes the risk of a few isolated showers.

Keep an eye on these maps if you like, you can scroll through the day in question and see if there are any shower possibilities for napier: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Hope the helps.

Anniversary Weekend

Too early to ask how we are looking for Anniversary Weekend in Auckland?

Hi there, and yes it is

Hi there, and yes it is sorry! The long range data for then shows a couple of big systems around (one big high and one big low) but too far out to know the placement or strength of those systems. Will have a better idea by the end of this week.

Weather for sat

Auckland please

A very messy set up this

A very messy set up this weekend with a lot of humid, cloudy, sub-tropical air around northern NZ. Keep an eye on our detailed Auckland forecasts (which have hourly forecasts for you to look at across Saturday) - at this stage the day looks fairly cloudy, quite humid with drizzle and even the chance of heavier showers in the mix. A forecast that might change a bit as we head into Saturday but muggy weather looks likely.

Kind regards

Windy Dunedin.

Hello WW Team I really need your help here. We have had winds, winds and windy winds in Dunedin since before Christmas. Will there be an end to it before summer dies? Or is Dunedin really the wind capital of New Zealand??? Sorry Wellington but I think we deserve that title. Past 3 days saw 30+ kph winds at times. My allergies are going nuts BTW. Cheers and keep up your usual good work, guys. FS&Cat

Will there be an end? How

Will there be an end? How long is a piece of string? It just depends on the type of weather set ups that are moving through. Summer is typical for having fresh east to northeasterly winds about eastern coastal parts of the South Island, some summers more then others. May have to just go with it :)

Thanks for writing in!

Aaron

meremere

Do you get your forecast from Accuweather ( as installed on most android phones) or do they get it from you? One of you has decided that Meremere is in Taranaki instead of North Waikato and it is screwing up a whole lot of people. There is an international motorsport venue at Drag Way Meremere, ( North Waikato) between Huntly and Pokeno which is weather reliant to run some of it's activities.People come from all over New Zealand to race there, but when they use their phone to check the weather it is telling them about Taranaki weather which is often too wet to race . This leads to less competitors, less spectators , loss of revenue and wasted money for those who competitors who miss out on points for national series because they didn't show up due to a bad weather forecast. It skews the season results and reduces participation in future events and racing series. I am asking you to correct this anomally...90% of Kiwis who know of Meremere would be thinking of the North Waikato village, power station district or Drag racing venue. ( There are also five other motorsport tracks at the venue. ) All affected by this innacuracy. The Meremere which you forecast for is a very small road and Pa in South Taranaki which nobody I know has ever heard of.
