11/12 to 19/12 holiday

Hi there, we are visiting Queenstown from Melbourne. And it looks like it will be raining throughout next week. Any chance of any good weather?

Hi there It's a fairly west

Hi there

It's a fairly west to northwest pattern for much of next week, you'll get showers at times spreading from the west but there will be dry periods and sun now and then. It looks like most of this is building to a front moving through later on Thursday (15th) then clearing away on Friday. Saturday looks good and perhaps Sunday although that's a long way away and chances are the forecast may have changed a bit by then.

Satuday 10/12

Hi there, We have a cricket game on Sat 10/12 between 12:30pm-6:30pm. I see lots of rain is forecast for the afternoon. Should we call off the game?WIll there be periods of sun/chance of play?

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the question. We can't give you a precise time when it will clear this far out but it appears it will clear at some point in the afternoon. It's a fast moving front and by Friday AM we'll have a good idea how long it may linger and better specifics for a clearance time,

Cheers

A difference of opinion....or is it?

I am just curious as to why I look at your weather, TV channel 1 & 3 weather and marine forecasts and I see such a difference in predictions in general. Why is that?

Why are the All Blacks

Why are the All Blacks different to the Wallabies? Why is KFC different to McDonalds? Or Ford to Holden? We're all different - we all communicate the weather in different ways to suit a particular audience, and we use different sets of data to rely on which can create different forecasts.  basically :)

Pukekohe wind direction Tuesday

Hi. Wanting to burning tree clippings on Tuesday, semi rural Pukekohe, and don't want smoke for the neighbours. Looks like NE possible. Can you confirm/advise wind direction please. Original follower since your inception and always reliable and more specific that you know who. Many thanks, Marcus.

Hey Marcus, :) thanks for the

Hey Marcus, :) thanks for the loyalty and positive feedback!

Light winds and sea breezes on Tuesday mean any wind direction is possible at some point, NE and SW often battle it out on a calm day to dominate. You may want to wait until a breeze starts to kick in during late morning to get a feel for which way it is going. A nor'west flow arrives overnight Tues/into Weds and picks up across Wednesday.

Auckland Thunder Storm

Very heavy rain and Thunder on the shore.... came from nowhere..... what's happening???

As we forecast some afternoon

As we forecast some afternoon downpours in the city. Thunder risks were mostly north and south of Aucland but north shore on the edge of the more northern focused downpours and isolated thunderstorm. Will ease/clear into the evening.

Cheers

WW

I KNEW I heard rumbling. In

I KNEW I heard rumbling. In Henderson and heard the thunder. Not my imagination. LOL

Thunderstorms

Hi there Metservice have forecast a high risk of thunderstorms for otago today. I am interested to know if weather watch has thunderstorms forecast today, in particular for dunedin?

Hi there, we have detailed

Hi there, we have detailed forecasts for Dunedin. If we don't mention thunder there then we don't expect them. There may be a few big showers popping up, but at this stage we aren't forecasting thunderstorms in Dunedin.

Thanks

La Nina

G'day Is it correct that La Nina has been confirmed for NZ this summer? Time to call off the cricket and BBQ's in the north island? Many Thanks P.S Will there be a Santa Tracker this year ?

Hi there, Yes La Nina has

Hi there, Yes La Nina has been confirmed but it's a "weak" one. The current pattern (cloudier and a bit wetter) is pretty much the La Nina pattern, although we're yet to see more easterlies.  So yes downpours more likely - but still plenty of dry days too :) 

Yes, Santa Tracker will be around this year - we're working with a few interested organisations now to help make sure it happens.

Kind regards,
Philip Duncan

Thanks for the reply ... out

Thanks for the reply ... out of interest when was the last summer NZ experienced a strong La Nina?

You can find the history of

You can find the history of La Nina here: We had La NIna about 3 or 4 years ago, also around 2000. Perhaps one of the biggest ones for NZ was in the 1990s.

Windy for Santa Parade Auckland

Has got very gusty with threat of rain for Auckland Santa Parade, just as you have forecast!

wow cloud magic

NE gentle breeze is here in New Lynn. From a sky packed tight with clouds, the wind has broken the tight packed clouds up. Beautiful ephemeral clouds!

Difference In Wind and Humidity

Just wondering does the wind and humidity differ compared to where you measure your wind and humidity compared to say Metservice? For instance you are currently saying for Auckland SE 6.8km where Metservice says SW 20km and humidity for Auckland is 67% yet 80% on Metservice. How can they differ so much?

Hi there, MetService in

Hi there, MetService in Auckland tend to only use a couple of weather stations - we have dozens so have more localised data. The community network we connect into isn't perfect for everyone, we certainly have a few bugs to iron out, but overall we have far more detail than tax funded MetService and NIWA combined and in the new year we'll be launching all the observations on the network to help everyone have a much better understanding for what is going on weatherwise near where you are - rather than just where the Government owned mostly airport weather stations are located (but we'd love to have that scientific data too, to be a good solid level of data to trust too - and we're thankful the Government is officially investigating why we can't currently display this 100% tax funded data).  Oh and yes, there can be big differences in wind speed, direction and humidity in Auckland due to the two different oceans east and west and land masses to the north and south.

Kind regards,

WW

Windy!!

Just wondering if you guys know why or have noticed that it has been very windy recently (last few months). Is there a meteorological reason for this? Or are my observations off? Thanks heaps.

G'day there Meteorological

G'day there

Meteorological reason? It's spring I spose, usually is changeable windy weather at this time of year. Some years more then others but that's the luck of the draw. Yes it has been fairly windy although luckily this time round Canterbury hasn't seen really big NW'ers like we have had some years, in saying that we have had some big SSW winds and so has the rest of the country.

This afternoons weather

Hi Guys, I'm supposed to be running a young kids golf competition out at Musick Point in Howick this afternoon from 4 until 7 so am just trying to work out whether to cancel or not. Is there a good likelihood of rain/hail/thunder during that period at this stage? Regards, James

Hi there As per our forecast

Hi there

As per our forecast it's on and off showers with brisk to strong westerly winds, hail and thunder is just a possibility but not a garantuee. I would imagine showers would continue through the period you talk about not clearing till later on.

Hope you figure out what it is you need to do :)

Cloud level in Bay of Plenty

Morning weather watch! I'm thinking of going for an overnight walk in the Kaimai ranges sat-sunday - do you know what level the cloud cover will be?? Typically the warm westerly that appears to be predicted brings low cloud and bad visibility up there - would be good to know before i go I'll think I'll be around 700m thanks!

Hi there The cloud level is

Hi there

The cloud level is likely to be lower then 700m, anywhere from 200 to 500m, the lowest point is looking to be afternoon onwards. The highest point perhaps in the morning. It may vary during the day due to different temperatures and humidity combinations etc but still it'll be below 700m.

Hope that helps.

- WW Team

Thank you! I figure I'll

Thank you! I figure I'll still go. Is it likely to lift / clear sunday morning?

Hi there, yes it should break

Hi there, yes it should break away during the morning to leave a mostly sunny afternoon. :)

Wellington and beyond

Hey WW team, So seen a few things in Media about big storm in WLG tomorrow, do you think this will be bad enough to cancel the Cook Strait ferries? Secondly, do you think snow on Lewis pass will be bad enough to close that road? I know it's a guessing game but rather trust your guess than METserv! My company has bus load of tourists trying to cross interisland tomorrow with tour bus, and onto chch to continue their tour! just trying to work out if I need another night accommodation in WLG instead!!

G'day thereThere will likely

G'day there

There will likely be gale southerly winds pushing through Cook Strait from afternoon tomorrow, whether or not this will cancel ferry services and especially due to the circumstances (re earthquake issues), that I am not sure of, haven't managed to take my commercial skippers certificate yet :D. I'm mearly a weather forecaster so do that much but I don't know to what point the interislander ferries can handle sorry.

Probably best to contact either https://www.interislander.co.nz/ or https://www.bluebridge.co.nz/index.php/ and get their direct opinion as to what they think will happen as they are the ones operating those services and will have all the upcoming weather information on hand.

In regards to Lewis Pass, if any does fall it will be mainly at the summit and yes there may be up to 5 perhaps even 10cm accumulate up there however roading crews are generally on to it fairly quickly these days so I would imagine graders will be on standby making sure the road stays open if snow falls.

Hope everything works out! :)

- WW Team

Thanks!

Haha - yes you better get onto that skippers certificate! thanks anyway - appreciate the info re Lewis - helpful Keep up the good work WW!

Super moon

Super Moon put in an appearance, glowing in a murky, cloudy sky over Auckland City. I saw the moonset this morning too, bright in clear NW skies.

weather radar

Do you guys have weather radar available to view?

Hi there, no we don't because

Hi there, no we don't because MetService is given privilaged sole commercial use of the radar data even though it's 100% owned by the New Zealand public. The Government is currently investigating this after 10 years of us fighting for change to free up public data.   You can read more about this here: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/government-announces-details-niwametservice-investigation

Weather for North West Auckland for Sat 19th Nov

Could you please tell me what the weather is looking like for the above date and place? Getting married in spring is risky business! Thanks

Hi there, for 7 days away I

Hi there, for 7 days away I would only be able to give a general idea for the upper North Island as a whole let alone just a small part of Auckland city.

Around then it's looking like showers with gusty Westerly winds, perhaps there may be sunny spells now and then. But this could change as once again it's quite a while away.

Either way hope your day goes well :)

A couple of flecks of rain

There has been a couple of flecks of rain as the wind blows from NNW in New Lynn. Rain would be welcome!

Supermoon

Hi there, Love your work. Please keep it up as it's nice to have an accurate weather forecast in New Zealand, unlike some other over-funded ones I can think of.... What is your team's opinion on whether or not we'll be able to see the supermoon next week in central Auckland? Your forecast says rain from late evening, so I'm guessing I'll miss another lunar event. Many thanks, Lee

what would you expect in the city of gales

Wind,Clouds and Rain as always

Hi there Thanks for that

Hi there

Thanks for that :)

Yes it's not looking the best weather wise for seeing the moon. Manily cloudy weather around that times. You never know there could be moments / breaks in cloud at times however so fingers crossed. :)
