Fri 11th May

MetService says it will be wet, you say it will be sunny & dry - these are very opposite - who should I believe?

It be horrible SW

It be horrible SW pattern,means it be overcast with a few showers and windy,typical Auckland weather.

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage Friday and Saturday are a little uncertain but none of the data we use suggests a very wet day.  40% risk of a shower on Friday otherwise cloudy periods and sou'westers at this stage - check back for updates though, as the weather pattern at the end of the week is a little messy.

Cheers

WW

1 Degree tonight

On the Waitakere part of the Auckland forecast on metservice, it says it will get down to 1 degree tonight. I live in Titirangi, would the 1 degree be in the ranges, or the surrounding suburbs on the edges of the ranges, like Titirangi and Glen Eden etc..

Hi there - we think most

Hi there - we think most parts of Auckland will be around 4 to 7 degrees overnight.  Some isolated inland areas, like Henderson Valley, may drop a degree or two lower.  Unsure about where exactly it will be 1 but most likely in the valleys out West.

Cheers

WW

Thanks. Could the 1 degree be

Thanks.

Could the 1 degree be at whenuipai air force base, where the readings for Waitakere are taken (which is hardly out west, more north shore)

Who knows! But I we aren't

Who knows! But I we aren't predicting 1 at Whenuapai tonight, absolutely agree it's more North Shore than West Auckland (although people who live there may not agree!).  Whenuapai may get down to 3 or 4 though.

- Phil

Another one of those

Another one of those Metservice Mysteries...

if they were going to do a forecast for out west, you would think they would take it from somewhere in the suburbs, Henderson or New Lynn perhaps.

Hello, I've got a wedding and holiday in Rarotonga this weekend, just wondering if you knew the weather details for the islands?

Probably better than Aucklands weather today. at least it be warm.

Well - it could be a good weekend for washing I say......
Thanks for the heads up :-)

Weather - 12th May Auckland (Evening)

I am trying to find out what the weather may be like on the evening of the 12th of May in Auckland.
I looked at the rain map, but couldnt find the info.

Would you be able to advise the conditions?

A good chance it will be SW

A good chance it will be SW (like today) with showers or cloudy periods with straight easterlies,thats all we seem to get lately.this will cover all bases.

A bit too far away

Sorry, not just yet.  That's a bit too far away to make any real sound prediction.  By the time Monday rolls around, you will see some of the first bits of information on that day.

Cheers, Howard

Sunday 11:30am

Hey guys, going to do the skywalk on the skytower at this time. Was wondering if the rain would hold off. Chances?

Breezy, but it should be dry

I think chances for showers are few and far between.  So I think your chances are pretty good for a being rain-free at that time.

Have fun.  You are braver than I.  My knees get weak just THINKING about doing that.  Yikes.

Cheers, Howard

Thanks

Cheers mate, trying not to think about it.. haha!

GARDEN NEEDS RAIN IN AUCKLAND, ANY CHANCE OF SOME

My garden is very dry, there has not been much rain at all lately. Any chance that the prediction of rain might come off. Live in Avondale and am using hose on newly planted shrubs every other day.

Chances should stay put

Best chances are Saturday morning and Monday morning.

I think the Monday precip chances are pretty solid.  Saturday morning precip chances may have to come off, but I would say that's not real likely.  I think there will be at least some chance for precipitation.

So, you should be getting some rain over the next few days.

Cheers, Howard

Monday Outdoor Photoshoot

Hi Guys. We have a outdoor photoshoot booked for Monday morning out where we live in Pukekohe. Is it going to be a mixed bag out here as it will be in Auckland, or should we look for alternative indoor locations?
We often do not know which city weather report to go with (Auck or Ham) as we are in the middle.
CHeers

Hamilton be the better option

Hamilton be the better option as it be windier in auckland.

Looking wet

I wish I had better news for you, but it's looking a bit showery on Monday.  Especially in the morning.  As the day wears on, it may ease off.  However, you could run out of daylight before you run out of shower chances.

You probably want to plan for an indoor shoot.

Cheers, Howard

Great morning outside with

Great morning outside with shoot :-) No rain, overcarst with a slight breeze. Perfect!

Rain in west auckland this Sat?

Hiya, just wondering whether its likely to rain on saturday in henderson/te atatu area (west auckland) as im planning on moving house in the afternoon, thanks.

A mixed day

A few showers and a few periods of dry weather mixed together.

I think the main focus for the showers will be in the morning.  This is when it should be the most widespread.

 

Cheers, Howard

Strong SW and clearing

Strong SW and clearing saturday,then Gales and showers Monday folks.

WONDER WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE SUNS...

...that were showing for the days to come? Buried under another carpet of Auckland gloom, I presume!!

Because we haven't yet split

Because we haven't yet split the days into two (which we will be doing this year!) you're seeing more cloud icons because we typically take the afternoon weather as the main weather to display each day - but most mornings we expect to be like today - which is mostly sunny. 

The changes to the forecast page later this year will mean you can see more icons, text and data for different parts of the day - and not just one block per day as it is now.  :)

Spectacular morning

What an amazing morning it is here in Auckland. Cold but boy are we lucky to live in this beautiful place.

Gosh has anybody noticed how

Gosh has anybody noticed how cold it has got in the morning?
I can't believe the Weather settled after summer.

ANZAC Day

Hi Guys - loving the morning afternoon and evening forecasting! How is it looking for the dawn parade please?

Usually rains on that day,I

Usually rains on that day,I reckon NE and showers.

Dawn parade

At the moment it appears to be dry and cool however with just over a week to go there's a chance it could change. We'll keep you posted and thanks for your question.

Cheers

saturday

hi,is it still looking good for saturday? during the day and evening?thanx

Yes it be fine on saturday

Yes it be fine on saturday though still fairly windy (SSW) easing off early in the evening to a clear cool night.

Moonset & Rainbow

Lovely skies in Auckland West as cumulus grow and moon sets. Rainbows have been frequent this morning low over the Ranges.

Sydney's Summer compared to Auckland's Summer

The good folk of Sydney have had a poor summer. How has it compared to (a) Auckland's summer and (b) a "normal" Auckland summer?

Regards, John

Its much warmer both day and

Its much warmer both day and night though as WW says its much wetter than ours.

Hi John - Sydney was far

Hi John - Sydney was far wetter than Auckland - we haven't looked at their stats (weatherzone.com.au is a great place to start) but they had far more rain and their temps were frequently below average during the day and night.  Auckland was cloudier and slightly cooler but rainwise we were about right.

A more 'normal' summer for Auckland would've seen more sun, less easterlies and a much hotter spell in February - several degrees warmer than this year.

- WW

From cloudy to almost clear skies

Amazing how quickly the clouds went away this afternoon. From rain laden clouds to almost clear sky. A beautiful golden sunset tonight!

FORECAST HAS SAID RAIN BUT NONE HAS COME

I live in Auckland and my garden is dry and am having to use a hose to water. Rain was forecast several times and then none. Frustrating as hoping for rain for garden.

After thursday keep your hose

After thursday keep your hose ready as it be anticyclonic a bit out.

We understand your

We understand your frustration - a few others are wanting rain also.  We haven't really be picking rain for this week, apart from Wednesday - although we did think during the weekend that some showers may arrive as early as Tuesday night - but clearly we've changed that to Wednesday afternoon/night now.  Incoming rain has potential to deliver a few heavy pockets of rain but generally speaking it doesn't pack much punch for the north.  After that, we may have several dry days.

- WW

Rain on Wednesday

Will the rain on Wednesday arrive in West Auckland in the morning or afternoon?

Hi there - at this stage the

Hi there - at this stage the models are suggesting afternoon and evening.  Keep an eye on our forecasts though as this might speed up or slow down a few hours between now and then.

Cheers
