East Coromandel weekend

Hi there. I’m really just scratching for any glimmer of hope. I’m going anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter too much but is there any hope of some fine patches on Sunday near Opito? Be great if I could do the lawns! I’m staying Monday too which seems much better. Any good news? Cheers

Hi there Looks like there

Hi there

Looks like there could be some sun break through at times Sunday afternoon onwards although lawns might still be too wet to mow?

Monday looks to be cloudy areas, occasional sun and a few showers at times during the day.

Have a great weekend! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Opito weekend

Cheers and thanks heaps. You guys do a fantastic job and don’t think it ain’t appreciated

Weekend

Hi there, I understand that it’s looks a bit rainy on Saturday but will there be much wind and are there any thunderstorms?

Hi there, there is a bit of

Hi there, there is a bit of rain around this weekend but also a lot of dry weather too. The rain is intense in one small area (currently forecast to be over Coromandel Peninsula maybe). Assuming you're asking about Auckland, but yes some rain with winds variable (due to the low moving in). Winds don't look overly strong. We'll have full details in our next video out around noon Thursday.

Cheers

WW

Thank you, how about

Thank you, how about thunderstorms for Auckland?

Weather seems to be changing

Weather seems to be changing a fair amount with this low for the weekend, at this stage perhaps Sunday if you are lucky although they may sit more offshore about Great Barrier Island and the Coromandel.

Can't see how it says showers

Can't see how it says showers becoming few and far between yet other sites and rain maps are showing rain all day. Your forecasts have become really inaccurate lately I have noticed and it is quite frustrating.

Forecasts change buddy,

Forecasts change buddy, especially the further you go out into the future. Like I said above it seems quite changeable with this low coming up. No doubt some aspects of the above forecasts could change again by the time Sunday comes around so some things at this point in time may become irrelevant and you could be arguing over nothing. But anyway......

Weather

Hi, Is your weather accurate? And in Auckland is there going to be much rain this weekend?

Hi thereI'd hope it's

Hi there

I'd hope it's reasonably accurate otherwise we wouldn't exist! :D

Saturday looks wet for sure with heavy rain possible for a time, Sunday at this stage is morning showers easing becoming less frequent during the day and sunny spells making an appearance.

Hope that helps :)

Taupo

Hi, we have some relatives over from Ireland and taking them down to Taupo on Wednesday until Saturday - will it be reasonably dry down there do you think? Thanks Des

Hi Des

Feel free to use our search function on the home page and type in "Taupo". Here's the direct link:

As in the forecast it looks dry for most of that time, Saturday is when some wet weather moves in :)

weather next month

What are the chances of the weather in Ruakaka middle of next month being warm still ?

Hi there Sorry couldn't say

Hi there

Sorry couldn't say at the moment what will happen mid next month, being closer to winter you would mostly expect conditions on average to be colder then they are now.

Come back and ask closer to the time if you like :)

Port Charles 21 April?

Help! My partner and I planned a hike in Port Charles Coromandel area this Saturday but weather is conflicting between you guys and metservice. We're not game to drive all the way in just to see - do you have any suggestions why it's so conflicting and which forecast to consider for planning? Cheers!

Hi there, If we all had the

Hi there, If we all had the exact same forecast there would be no need for competition for us to exist! We don't comment on the accuracy of MetService public forecasts, we only monitor our own. The forecast at this stage for Port Charles area is mostly dry with windy westerlies. Perhaps a shower but that risk currently looks mainly further down towards Thames.

All the best!
WW

Thanks so much and completely

Thanks so much and completely understand! :)

Windy conditions

Can you please tell me when we are likely to expect these windy conditions to ease up? Sue from Whangaparaoa

Hi Sue You could use our

Hi Sue

You could use our Auckland forecasts as the winds will be similar. Or type in Whangaparaoa into our search box on the homepage, you'll see forecasted wind speeds for the next 10 days there.

Generally speaking apart from breezy southwesterlies tomorrow winds look moderate from the westerly quarter for the next wee while by the looks of things.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Windy conditions

Thanks Aaron, yes that helps. I have a young wild bird to release soon that I rescued a few weeks ago and he has only just grown his flight feathers back so was hoping to make it as easy as possible for him to fly! Regards Sue

Event on evening Sat 28th april

Hi, I know its a long way out, but any rough ball park idea of likely rain or not on Sat 28th evening ?? Wouldn't hold you to it of course, but even a possible indication would be helpful. thanks heaps

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the challenging question :) Ok, at this stage it looks as though we'll have a big high exiting New Zealand to the east around then and allowing a possible developing rain maker to move in perhaps around the 28th or 29th. It appears it will be all down to the timing of that high and when it departs the country. If the high is a little slow to move on then the dry/sunnier weather lingers longer, if the high zips away quickly then it could be showery or wet. Hope that's somewhat helpful!

Cheers,
Phil D

Metservice has some recent

Metservice has some recent information like that if you click on say "Auckland" for example and scroll down the page you'll see recent information. Beyond that (i.e. older stats) you will have to contact metservice or niwa directly to get that info.

Hi there, apologies for this but it seems to be a technical issue with the data feed. We've logged this and also put a temporary fix in so you can see at least see something current from the region in that space :)

Getting married on Saturday.

Getting married on Saturday. Is the weather forecast likely to change for 14th April in Auckland.

Saturday currently looks like

Saturday currently looks like a mostly cloudy morning with a shower or two then increasing dry areas into the afternoon with sun breaking through. Moderate winds from the southwest and highs in the high teens.

This forecast will likely change somewhat between now and then as it's 6 days away, to what degree is yet to be seen.

Hope your wedding day goes well either way! :)

I see rain is in the forecast

I see rain is in the forecast for Saturday. Will this stop in afternoon?

Saturday may end up being

Saturday may end up being quite difficuilt to forecast for, as you can see in these maps:

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

There is a narrow band of rain plonked almost right over the Auckland region, so currently that is the forecast I would be going with. Some rain, clearing away mid to late afternoon and sunny areas developing. But this could still change as a small shift in this band of rain will obviously result in a different forecast. Some other models are looking very similar however not showing the rain not clearing till evening or even overnight.

Hope there is a plan B!

Cheers
Aaron
