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.

Hi there, thanks so much for

Hi there, thanks so much for your kind support :)

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

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

Simply outstanding question

It's early to mid-March champ, the question isn't how many layers, but more whether or not to even bring a top layer. Temps still in the mid-20's

Layers of jumpers? I'd just

Layers of jumpers?

I'd just take one jersey incase there might be a cold'ish day or two I guess? :D Enjoy your holiday!

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. :)

Cheers

Hi there

Currently the best we have is if you go here: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/maps

Then choose the type of map you want to look at be it rain, wind etc. Then use the zoom fucntion to zoom in closer to where you want to look at and there you go.

Hope that helps.

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.

Wairarapa coast weather ahead

Hi, I will be doing the Tora walk the first weekend in March. I am really looking forward to it. Is there anything brewing in the Pacific which might make it miserable? Ordinary weather I think I can deal with. Thanks very much

A bit too far out to lock in

A bit too far out to lock in sorry, but a glance at the extra long range maps shows the first week of March may be ok. The second week may turn sub-tropical.

Cheers and all the best! 
WW

Thank you

Thank you

Eye of the storm or has it passed?

Hey Ho from Takaka, Golden Bay, it has been still for about nearly an hour now, forecasts said it would be nasty to at least 10pm here ... are we in the eye of the storm, or ......

Hey there - yes you are! It's

Hey there - yes you are! It's passing over you now. Because the cyclone is now 'extra-tropical' the rain has shifted to the southern side so you should find conditions ease for you.  Strong winds are nearby - out in the Strait - but for now the upper South Island may be entering a calmer, drier, phase. 

All the best

WW

Thank You

Phew ... Thank you. I love Weather Watch, you guys rule :) KEEP UP THE FAB WORK! Miss Black

No worries Miss Black

Concrete pour tomorrow Coatsville

Hi Have been dying to get my driveway poured tomorrow Wednesday in Coatsville what are the chances of rain ?? Marty

Hi Marty Chances of rain are

Hi Marty

Chances of rain are fairly low but there is the risk of a shower or two across the day, any shower acitivity will likely be brief but they may just pop up now and then. Expect long dry periods also.

Hope the pour goes well!
