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.

Hi there, not sure why we

Hi there, not sure why we don't have Meremere in Waikato, but we will be including it soon! Our data does not come from AccuWeather, we work with IBM/The Weather Company which supplies data to Apple and Google. However our current agreement is actually with Wunderground which is now becoming a bit dated and this is a clear example of some of the minor bugs they have. For those using "automatically find your location" they will get the local Meremere forecast in North Waikato if in the area, but yes if searching elsewhere for 'Meremere' it does appear to be a bug directing them to the Taranaki forecast. Our new partnership with IBM will address this issue in the next month or so. It's a major nationwide upgrade we're doing. We have 1500 forecast locations to manage right now, soon we're increasing that even further. By the way, the two Government forecasters your taxes fund provide no forecast for Meremere.

Apologies for the bug. In the meantime Pokeno will be the best location to promote.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention - and look forward to the fix in the near future.
Kind regards

Weather february

Hi we are travelling to NZ at the end of january for 4 weeks. We are staying in Auckland, Bay of Islands and Nelson. Could you please let me know what the weather is going to be like. The forecast at the moment says that it is rain +++. Is it going to rain most of february? Kind Regards

Hi there Sorry, not sure what

Hi there

Sorry, not sure what will happen in February at this stage. It's a bit too far into the future.

Come back and ask us 7 days out from your trip and maybe we'll have a better idea of what is coming?

We mostly deal with the next 5 to 6 days, beyond that forecasts can start to chop and change a fair bit. At times they can be consistent and pull through, just depends.

Cheers

Short break

We're looking to take a short break somewhere in the North Island 15-17 January. It looks after all this sunshine as though we're in for a wet week. Where would you recommend for the best weather?!

Hawke's Bay! While Tuesday

Hawke's Bay! While Tuesday night and Wednesday AM won't be great, the rest of the week looks the best in the North Island around then :)

Forcast vs rain radar maps

Hi There Heading to tawhranui Peninsula near Omaha on Monday for 6 nights. Hoping you can walk me through the basics of reading the weather!?!? Can you help me understand the 10 day forcast versus the 10 day rain radar maps. The day by day forcast and the text descriptions are showing differently to the rain radar - eg doesn't look like any wet weather from Thursday. However the forcast says showers still on Thurs and Sat. Am I reading the rain radar incorrectly? Had assumed if no colour then that means a dry sky? Pink reads as showers? Appreciate your wisdom !

H there, yes it can be a

H there, yes it can be a little tricky pairing them up (as they don't always go hand in hand). Keep an eye on the % chance of rain for the area you're specifically heading to. Monday looks mostly dry but a front on late Tuesday / early Wednesday sees some heavy rain - then generally it improves again. Shower risks in coastal areas like Omaha can be VERY tricky to forecast with coastal winds shifting where those showers can be. We can often be on the borderline for showers at the time of the year - so that's why the maps and forecasts may not match up. Our advice is to focus on the % of rain each day (and hourly where it matters) as anything over 60% is a fairly high chance of some wet weather. The weather icons sometimes will show a RAIN cloud but the % of rain tells you if it's a high chance of rain. The weather maps then can give you some understanding as to where the main area of rain is how close you are to this. Also keep an eye on our detailed Auckland forecast that we write here at WeatherWatch.co.nz as it somewhat applies to Omaha area too. Hopefully you will be covered with that info - but feel free to always ask again closer to the time :)

Cheers

probable weather cycle?

Hello, I'm a farmer from the South Otago region (Balclutha Area) and we have received below average rainfall since July 20th. How long do you anticipate lasting, we are starting to get desperate. Thanks and kind regards, G. Hunter ps, we seem to be getting big cyclones to the south-east of the country which is moving the rain north missing us.

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your message and question. The news isn't great in the short term - but there is SOME rain coming. The general trend if for drier than average weather for the next 7 days, however next week there's a chance of two cold fronts coming in to Southland. Take a look here at our latest forecast for next week which breaks down what is happening each day. You'll be into the low 30sC on Monday though - hot and dry weekend coming up. Overall the map at the bottom suggests the dry trend continues - but these fronts can sometimes deliver a good downpour - but no major change in the pattern for you just yet.

Cheers

Rain for southland

Hi do you see any significant rain for January for inland southland . We had relieving rain over Christmas but have been in a prolonged dry spell. Cheers.

Hi there There may be some

Hi there

There may be some rain around the 17th otherwise looking fairly dry. Keep an eye on these maps (link just below) and you'll see the rain bands and where the are going using the drop down menu / skipping ahead of time etc.

Next Week

Hi, We were thinking of renting a bach next week in Matakana with the kids, but the forecast is showing rain from Tues to Fri. How certain is that at the moment? Thanks!

A bit hard to lock in, it

A bit hard to lock in, it looks patchy but with a sub-tropical connection it means any rain or showers could be quite heavy. One to keep an eye on - the models have bene flipping a bit on whether high pressure will win out or this low coming in. Keep an eye on the % of rain in the forecasts for Matakana and we'll most likely have a news story on this potential wet weather tomorrow, Thursday.

Cheers :)

Bay Of Islands Weather

Going sailing on the 15th of Jan for a week. Is it too far out to forecast? Concerned about a low coming down from the tropics.

Hi thereThe 15th looks

Hi there

The 15th looks mainly cloudy, chance of a shower or two with northeasterlies. 16th has some rain with heavy falls possible then clearing up on the 17th.

That's as far as I can see currently, and yes the above may change as we get closer to those dates due to it being a bit far out in time. Keep an eye on these maps if you can: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

They show exactly what we would be looking at.

Wishing you the best for you trip!

Gisborne 16th-28th jan

Hello Just wondering if you have a rough idea of the weather due in Gisborne between the 16th - 28th jan yet? Whether it is Rain or sun? And what kind of temperatures. Hoping we are seeing the last of this rain soon.... Thanks

Hi there, it's too far out

Hi there, it's too far out for us to be able to answer that sorry. Generally speaking high pressure should be dominating but, as we can see this week, we have a sudden storm on our doorstep. Usually in a La Nina summer Gisborne has a higher chance of cloud and slightly lower temperatures - but hopefully you'll be there for a big high pressure system. 10 days out is usually about when we have a good idea as to what is going on with the weather patterns.

Driving Whangarei to Kawakawa Safe?

Hi, just checking if it is safe to drive from whangarei to Kawakawa and back this morning? saw wind warnings and wondering if they are still in place. I am driving a van

Hi there, the edge of the

Hi there, the edge of the centre of the low is now brushing Auckland and Northland so it's possible winds may still be severe in some exposed areas. Generally the worst of the winds will be Friday AM with blustery conditions remaining for the rest of the day in the north. Use common sense and if you feel it's not too bad you can probably cautiously set off.

Kind regards and safe travels

Driving from Hamilton to Auckland

Hi guys, I just want to know if it is safe to drive from Hamilton to Auckland and back tomorrow? Or is it better to drive Saturday? And also is it safe to drive to Devonport tomorrow (over the big, scary bridge). Thanks! Kayla

Hi there, better to drive to

Hi there, better to drive to on Saturday Kayla, but Friday will improve as the day wears on. Friday morning looks pretty rough in some exposed parts of Auckland.
Cheers :)

Hi Guys, Just a quick

Hi Guys, Just a quick question for you - MS forecast for Akl region is "severe gale gusting 120 km/h in exposed places". Are those "exposed places" likely to be the marine areas you refer to in your article on this storm?

Hi there, this relates to

Hi there, this relates to coastal areas, like the Manukau Heads or maybe Whangaparaoa, the Harbour Bridge.

At this stage we're not expecting 120km/h for most suburbs but it's a bit of a fluid situation and worthy keeping an eye on updates. Our main focus for severe gales is across marine areas and in some exposed western areas of the Auckland region nearest to the Tasman Sea.

Cheers

Te Aroha Weather

Hi this is Colleen from Te Aroha. Can you please explain why it is when i type in Te Aroha it comes under Bay Of Plenty, we are actually in the Matamata Piako District. Some time ago we were under Coromandel Peninsula. So what do we actually come under please. Thanks Colleen

Hi there Colleen, the weather

Hi there Colleen, the weather has slightly different boundaries and Te Aroha falls under the Kaimai Ranges/BOP side - it makes no difference to the accuracy of the forecast. In 2018 we're working to change these boundary names to make them more realistic for people like you who consider yourself in MPD or Eastern Waikato.

Taupo weather

Hi. I am heading off to Taupo from Auckland tomorrow to camp in a tent should a hold off a day or two due to the bad weather that is forecast.

Hi there I would hold off

Hi there

I would hold off personally if you can, travelling down today might be ok but you'll have a very wet and potentially windy time camping overnight tonight. Saturday night looks much more pleasant, the ground could still be boggy though depending on where you are camping.

Cheers
Aaron

It would be nice in Dunedin

Wow WW Team The Next 24 Hours information states that we should be getting rain but as I am sitting outside texting this....not a drop. ((Mr. Pussycat is doing his imitation of belly crawling across the desert saying, "Water! Water! I know Ima Cat but....WATER!)) Hahaha. When will we get some? Can the Aucklanders give us a little please? I held off walking to Uni to chose classes coz I thought it would be bucketing down. Please help. I trust your answers. Big thanks to you all. Keep up the great work. Funky Student & Cat.
