Why does it still show West Coast summary when I select Nelson as my favourite.?

Hi there This is something

Hi there

This is something we’ve raised with Wunderground. It doesn’t impact the accuracy of the WU forecasts but the electoral boundaries aren’t perfectly aligned. This will be sorted later this year. :)

Thunder

Distant thunder rumbles, black & grey skies, approaching New Lynn. Heavy rain just about here!

Temp. at Masterton

Your 12:36 pm temperature today is reported as 34.8C. This cannot be right even in the sunny Wairarapa ! Otherwise, I like your web site . Very useful. Thanks. Regards, Ray.

Hi there This will be a

Hi there

This will be a weather station that is not calibrated correctly (stations are from members of the public), you will see a link to "report bad data" within the little box showing the temperature etc so feel free to click that and report it as a bad link.

Within a month or two we will be implementing some changes anyway which fingers crossed should remove these odd ball temperatures.

Thanks for hanging in there though :)

This weather

Hi Phil This does seem very much like an early Spring but without the warmth! We have never used so much gas for heating actually as every day seems wet & windy. We are in the Waikato & the ground is saturated down here. I feel sorry for the farmers as the paddocks are just turning into mud. Looking forward there seems to be no end in sight either, unless you can give me some hope? Cheers Dave

Hi Dave, cheers for the

Hi Dave, cheers for the message. Yeah Waikato (and Auckland) both don't usually feel much warmth when the westerlies kick in - it's just air from the Tasman Sea area after-all. Eastern areas a much luckier with their sun and highs of 18 to 20 degs lately!  It's tough out there right now across NZ wet-wise. The positive about spring is that is usually speeds up rain makers and drives in much more wind. Early spring is often wet though so perhaps another few weeks to go before we really see a decent dry spell (based on gut instinct/patterns in previous year). The highs north of NZ are showing some signs of drifting further southwards (which they do as we go into Spring) so fingers crossed we get the HIGHLY OVERDUE high pressure! 

Cheers
Phil

Will there be a cold blast in

Will there be a cold blast in NZ 20 august? Keep up the good work

Hi there, not a cold blast so

Hi there, not a cold blast so much but certainly a drop to single digit temperatures in the South Island - but the North Island looks much warmer at this stage. Our latest video out this morning will cover the large low coming in for the weekend (yes, another one!)

Cheers

weather history

Are you able to supply the weather conditions (temp, and rain fall) from July 20th 2017 - July 23rd 2017 for the Tauranga and Papamoa area. Thank you very much. Donna

Hi Donna For the most part,

Hi Donna

For the most part, from us specifically, no. You can however go here: http://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/tauranga

Scroll down the page a little and you'll see information for the past 30 days in Tauranga. It shows what rain totals are for the day's in question you mention and high / low temperatures.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Rain rain go away

Argh when is this rain going to end! We are in the Waikato and looking at the forecast ahead it looks like lots more of the same. Please tell me it's going to be nice and sunny soon to dry up all our mud. Love your forecasting by the way, very acurate ☺️

Hi there Not sure exactly,

Hi there

Not sure exactly, it's just the pattern we are stuck in at the moment. And yes I would say much more of the same for the next we while.

Thanks re the forecasting, we try! :)

Hey! As a fellow weather

Hey! As a fellow weather enthusiast, MetService has really frustrated me last few days. They updated their Tongariro National Park forecast yesterday morning, with a snow level forecast for 1400 meters. The thing is, they havent updated any of there writing in over 30 hours. Snow has this afternoon fallen to 900 meters, 5cm accumulation at 1100 meters, and wet snow on the Desert Road.. you guys picked it, along with me when i was looking at the models.. but MetService did not. Totally useless... for the amount of money they are funded by the GOVT, and also the amount of money DOC pay for the mountain forecasts.

Have you actually put your

Have you actually put your question to Metservice? The WW guys don't work at metservice.

I guess it goes both ways,

I guess it goes both ways, there's been moments when other outfits have certainly out-forecast us. But then yes for the size we are (2 people basically with just me doing 86% of the centre and national forecasts each week) we do fairly well, now if I could just get a tiny minuscule fraction of their budget then maybe I could get by in life a bit easier, sigh.......lol :D

Thanks though, hopefully we will continue to serve you well! :)

Best wishes

Foxton Forcast

Any chance that the weather may change for Saturday 19th August ? Really praying for some sunshine for my son's 7th Birthday really not looking forward to kids being cooped up inside my tiny house for his birthday party.

Looks a bit wet currently.

Looks a bit wet currently. Could this change? Well it's possible, it is 6 days away but I'd be leaning towards it being wetter then drier unfortunately. :(

WW

Soggy weather

When oh when is it going to stop raining? A few dry breezy days would be wonderful, even if it was chilly!

That's Auckland for you,

That's Auckland for you, nothing to stop the weather barreling in from the Tasman Sea. Canterbury and other eastern areas have mountain ranges to thank for longer periods of dry weather.

Next week on Tue and Wed may see longer periods of dry for Auckland :)

Polar blast

Any chance of a polar blast next week? In Queenstown

Hi there Hmm not really from

Hi there

Hmm not really from what I can see, perhaps on Saturday next week but that's quite a fair way off. If any polar blasts are looking likely we'll make a note of it in terms of news stories / articles / weather videos. Keep an eye out! :)

Dunedin temperature location

Hi, I have been wondering why the current temperature data for Dunedin is being fetched from Patearoa. I would imagine the temperature difference between Dunedin and Patearoa would be significantly different.

Hi there Just scroll down the

Hi there

Just scroll down the page a little and you'll see some recent questions regarding exactly this, we're waiting on others to sort this issue unfortunately for the most part.

where will the driest sunniest place be near auckland

Hi there, I have a friend visiting from Australia, we live in Auckland, where will be the driest sunniest place to take them in North Island, seems like Whangarei will be a good bet?

Hi there, generally speaking

Hi there, generally speaking eastern areas (yes like Whangarei) will be driest/sunnies overall. Eastern Northland, eastern Coromandel etc. However sunniest/warmest weather may be further away in Hawke's Bay.

Good luck!

Cheers

Dunedin

Hi, As we are all aware the location of the data for Dunedin is incorrect but I was wondering, which Dunedin station should I use for the most accurate information, as there are dozens? Cheers

Hi there, we know that the US

Hi there, we know that the US forecasters are aware of the data fault in Dunedin's current and hourly forecasts - but our blue WW forecasts are still accurate.  We have 1500 locations so the best bet for Dunedin is to search for a suburb and that should address this. We've sent another email today to Wunderground.  The good news is that we are shifting forecast data before the year is done - from Wunderground to The Weather Company and this should also improve things.  SO in the meantime the 'fix' is to simply bookmark a Dunedin suburb or somewhere nearby like Port Chalmers and you'll get a much better feeling. Again we're really sorry we have this glitch affecting one of our main centres - we're doing our best to urgently get it fixed.

Thank you
Philip Duncan

Hey there WW Team Good to

Hey there WW Team Good to hear The Weather Company is coming on board. My best advice for the weather in Dunedin is to pack one of everything in ye olde school bag, (no room for the books. Hahaha) and look at Weatherwatch on ya phone every 15 minutes or so. Now you know what some of us students are gazing at when we walk. & stare at our phones. LOL Keep up the awesomeness, Philip and Team!!!

Thanks

Thank you for the reply, it's good to know you're onto it!

Forecast

What is the best place to seek forecasts for Waimamaku?

Hi there, we have 10 day

Hi there, we have 10 day forecasts for Waimamaku here.

For a smaller area like Waimamaku we suggest you use the hourly forecasts rather than just the daily forecast. The hourly information for temperature, wind direction/speed and % chance of rain will likey be more accurate than the general text forecast or the daily icon during weeks like this one (with a big low moving in). Try these hourly forecasts along with our weather videos and 7am/5pm InfoGraphics in our news feed and it should give you a really good idea as to what to expect.

Cheers
WW

Thanks

Thanks very much!

martinborough forecast

Hi, I just checked the forecast for this evening (called up at 6pm) for Martinborough and it defaulted to Wairarapa and only said 'showers possible early'.Not wind forecast either. It seemed like half a forecast, and when is 'early' when viewing a forecast at 6pm? Does it mean early evening or what? thanks

G'day there The forecast will

G'day there

The forecast will be for Martinborough, it's just the regional summary at the top that is for Wairarapa as a whole, all the day parts and tonight, tomorrow etc etc will be for Martinborough.

If there seems to be a slight lack of information in the txt (description) then scroll down the page just a fraction and you'll see hour by hour "Next 24 Hours" forecasts which show wind information and rain percentages etc, that should give you the information you need.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Hi guys, We live at Porangahau, for some reason your forecast summary gives us the Manawatu instead of the Hawkes Bay summary?? Otherwise, appreciate your accuracy, fantastic thanks! Megan.

Queenstown

We are hoping for a polar blast while we are on holiday in Queenstown 10 - 15 August, i believe these events are common this time of year?

Yes they are fairly common

Yes they are fairly common but they are very frequent - so timing is everything. It's too far out to lock in but at this early stage there is no cold blast around then (but about 7 days out you can check our Queenstown forecasts for more detail).

Cheers and have a great holiday in Queenstown :)

Windy as in Dunedin

Good morning WW Team. I looked at your forecast for Dunedin because the wind is really howling it up out there. Your indication is E 0 km/hr. Not according to the cat. He came in all windblown and angry with me for chucking him outside "in the middle of a tornado ". (HIS words. Hahahaha). Could you please let me know what the real wind speed is in Dunners for the day? Cheers and here's to not getting blown away. (the cat, too. Hahaha)

G'day thereThat wind speed

G'day there

That wind speed you are looking at is the current NOW information I'm thinking? It's a bit out of place that information, a report has been logged.

Most winds I'm seeing around Dunedin at the moment are sub 10 km/h. However high up it might be windier in the hill suburbs I'm picking? Winds should ease this morning and tend southerly and mostly stay around the 10 to 15 km/h range.

Apologies to the moggie, lol.

Could there be a polar blast

Could there be a polar blast in NZ 8 august-11 august

Not looking likely at this

Not looking likely at this stage, but that's quite a way away. Please keep an eye on our website for stories / articles concerning weather coming up in the future, if we think something will happen we'll mention it. :)

Not sure that's 2 weeks away, will have to wait till we get closer to then to know what will be coming up. Surely if it's coming we'll make a note in upcoming articles / stories / videos. Keep your eyes peeled!

The "Now" temperature

Hi I really like your weather forecasts and find them the most accurate and informative and they are my go-to website for weather info.. However, there is one thing about the "Now" temperature for Dunedin. On close examination I note that it is actually the current temperature at Patearoa which is inland Otago and a fair step from Dunedin. The "today" and "tonight" details I take to relate to Dunedin and I used to assume the "now" detail did too until one day it was so patently incorrect that I looked closely and noticed that it wasn't for Dunedin at all. Surely Weatherwatch has a temperature station for Dunedin closer than Patearoa? I'e just checked the Metservice website for Dunedin and they're showing current temp 7.6 feels like 6 while according to Wetherwatch in Dunedin (well Patearoa actually) it's 4.3!! Why do you do this? Thanks and regards
