Heavy rain

Lasted 6 mins, now eased in New Lynn.

Heavy rain as forecasted!

Heavy rain started 5:12 PM in New Lynn. Easterley!

Humidity

Hi there, Why is queenstown so humid even when it's not raining? I thought that cold environments are meant to have drier air? People seem to talk about needing more moisturiser in QT as skin dries out with the cold dry air so now I'm confused? Thanks :)

G'day there The realitive

G'day there

The realitive humidity is high yes however its just that, it's the humidity in the air relative to the air temperature which is quite cold. So it's actually not very humid at all down there. A slightly better way to measure humidity is the dewpoint temperature. Queenstown currently has a dewpoint of only 0.7C which is quite low, conditions start to feel humid when the dewpoint is up around 12 to 15 degrees, mind you that can be a little relative also as in Auckland dewpoint temperatures around there may be typical in summer. Your really humid conditions are 18 to 19 degree dewpoints northwards however Queenstown would rarely if ever see figures like that.

Here is a map of forecasted dewpoint temperatures around NZ at midnight:

Wicked wind in Dunedin today

WOW it was much windier in Dunedin than the forecasted 4.8 km/hr easterlies. Cold as and the froat didn't melt off the city streets until afternoon. I hope Saturday will be better. Thank you anyway WW Team. You're the greatest and most accurate. AC

Hmm, I think we had 25 km/h

Hmm, I think we had 25 km/h ENE winds for Dunedin yesterday in our forecast. That's average speed mind you, gusts could well have been higher. But yes it did look to be windier then 4.8 km/h I would say!

Unfortuanately looking like showers or rain from afternoon on Saturday.

Thanks heaps for the kind words, we try :)

WW

G'day WW Team. Thank YOU.!!

G'day WW Team. Thank YOU.!! Saturday morning was perfect for the job needing doing. Rain hit about 2pm and hasn't stopped. LOL Welcome to the South. Now bring on the frigid temps. (this week). Chocolate fish for you all ><> ><> ><>

Thanks very much for the update, much appreciated. The wind has been tricky for us today in both Hamilton and Dunedin (Hamilton was supposed to get a breeze, it didn't - and you weren't supposed to be as bad as that!). We were actually just speaking to someone in Dunedin yesterday and said how it's the hardest of the 6 main centres to forecast for. We're working hard to find ways to improve our Dunedin/Otago forecasts - hopefully we can make something happen this year to make our forecasts even more accurate. Thanks for your support and kind words!

Fog

Hi Phil As at 2pm today the fog remains around Hamilton although now finally showing signs of lifting. It will probably return in the evening I am guessing Cheers Dave

Hi Dave, really appreciate

Hi Dave, really appreciate your update, it's helpful to our own forecasting. A northerly breeze has arrived in Auckland and is now spreading into Waikato. Fog is not expected tonight due to this breeze. Hopefully we're done with the fog for a few days at least!

Cheers
Phil

Thanks Dave,
Quite normal for winds to die back at sunset (hence why the fog won't shift on yet) but the northerlies should still come in this evening. If you're awake at 9pm and it's still foggy let us know! The northerly breeze looks like it should be setting in by about then across western and northern Waikato.
Cheers
Phil

Fog Records?

Talking with the kids on the way to school, we don't ever remember so many fog days? It's gotta be some sort of number of fog days record for Auckland? What do you reckon? Is there a general fog record, or is it too hard because it's patchy? Ta

Hi there, New Zealand is the

Hi there, New Zealand is the only country in the western world to block historical weather observations from being displayed. This is because NIWA and MetService take taxpayer funding but operate as a commercial business (even when the profits don't go back into the Government). So we cannot answer this for you sorry, you'll need to contact NIWA or MetService directly and ask for their help. In Aussie, US, UK etc, we'd easily be able to answer this for you - or even have it all displayed on our website, seeing as the taxpayers fund it.

The Government is doing a review - but they are stalling now due to the election - it's neverending.

Cheers
WW

Well then...

You can tell the government that they are putting children off STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math - I think those are right!?) by not releasing data that they are actually asking for and want! Really, what kid doesn't like fog?!? They study weather in primary school, and most of those are using devices. If the information is not on these devices (ie how many fog days there are), then it is not enjoyed! I tried Metservice, but their question and answer "service" requires jumping through hoops on fire, or maybe I'm just lazy and don't want yet another password...Certainly wasn't as friendly or easy as this Q & A feature. Righteo, So I'll spend an hour writing to Minister Paul Goldsmith tomorrow and tell him about the children that are demanding the weather data!

Hi there - we'd love your

Hi there - we'd love your support and sorry it's not easy, no other western nation on earth does it this way and it's why we've been campaigning about this for years. You don't need to spend an hour, but a short email like the above would be great. Thank you for your support, it really means a great deal. We may soon start actively asking more WeatherWatch supporters to email Minister Paul Goldsmith now that the Government has become totally incapable of being able to even provide a rough estimated date on when they might even make a decision on this review - ie, will it even be this year?  Very little transparency and closed door discussions that they are refusing to make public.

Have a good weekend and thank you again, open data helps education, employment and the economy. It's why all western nations (except New Zealand) have it - because it collectively helps us all and costs nothing to make it open - the data is already sitting there, funded by you and I the tax payers, but currently only being controlled by commercial sales people at two Government Agencies (NIWA and MetService). That is wrong. The United Nations/World Meteorological Organisation supports open data too.

Cheers.

Fog

Hi Chaps - loving all the new things we can look at - great work!!! Would I be correct in hoping there shouldn't be fog in Akld on Tuesday morning. have to fly to Welly for a funeral.

Hi there, thank you for the

Hi there, thank you for the kind feedback, it's appreciated! :)  At this stage Tuesday looks calmer but a light southerly flow should keep any fog away from Auckland and Wellington then. Obviously check closer to the time, but as of today fog wouldn't likely be in our Tuesday morning forecast.  Sorry to hear your news too.

Kind regards

WSW gentle breeze

WSW gentle breeze blowing in New Lynn. A magnificent clear sky, beautiful. Amazing how the cumulus blew away!

Announcing a Monarch birth

A healthy strong male monarch hatched this afternoon. He turned into a chrysalis after the shortest day after hanging 3 days. Now hanging waiting for sunshine tomorrow!

10% rain

New Lynn North had 1 shower over part of it earlier this morning with a slight SE breeze , just moved to SW sunny & clear. Strange looking at rain line over abandoned building site. Some puddles, some dry! Gosh you are great at forecasting!

Some impressive big cloud

Some impressive big cloud build ups late morning/lunchtime - they have eased now, much sunnier and nicer now! 

Cheers and thank you :)

fog

hi, fly from whangarei to Auckland on 14 july at 7am. what do you think about fog?

Hi there, yes there are some

Hi there, yes there are some fog risks on Friday at 7am but hopefully a developing breeze means any fog will be short lived. Most of the fog should be south of Auckland though, but can't rule out some affecting flights in Auckland or Whangarei but major problems not expected at this point - but definitely worth monitoring.

Cheers

Abel Tasman coast track

Hey there, walking the Abel Tasman coast track Marahau through to Wainui starting Sunday 2nd July finish up on Thursday 6th July .. looks like a bit of rain going to accompany us or could we maybe get lucky ? Cheers

G'day there Sunday looks a

G'day there

Sunday looks a little debatable, could be a mix of sun and cloud but also the risk of a shower or two. Monday with an easing southwest flow looks a bit easier to decipher, mainly sunny and dry. Tuesday looks good too for the most part however cloud increases from late afternoon then watch for rain to move in overnight. Wednesday sees early rain ease to occasional showers and gusty northwesterly winds, finally on Thursday conditions may improve with the flow tending more southwest, sunny areas and some cloud.

Hope your trip goes well!

Routeburn Track Late August

Hi, I'm not sure how far in advance you can forecast but I'm thinking about doing the Routeburn Track starting on August 20th. My biggest concern is avalanches and I'll go somewhere else (Heaphy Track) if Routeburn looks dangerous. Can you provide any forecasts on snow falls between now and Aug 20th? Thx!

Hi there No sorry can't give

Hi there

No sorry can't give any information that far out, we mainly deal in the next 5 to 10 day time-frame bracket :D

Hope your tramp goes well when it comes around :)

No worries - I'll ping you close to the date and thanks so much for such an awesome service.

What are the odds of sea level snow in Christchurch this year?

Hi there, I was just wondering, do you guys think we will see sea level snow in Christchurch this year? I know forecasting snow this far out is nigh on impossible, but I was curious to hear what your gut instinct on this is. Been quite a while since we last had sea level snow settling here in Christchurch. Thanks!

G'day there No gut instinct

G'day there

No gut instinct on snow possibilities to sea level unfortunately in Chch, and your right yes it's pretty much impossible for me to tell. Sorry no good news for you there :(

Fog 29th June Napier to Auckland

Hi is there any chance of fog early in the morning in either Napier or Auckland that could affect flights on Thursday 29th June? Thanks

Hi there, fog is a bit hard

Hi there, fog is a bit hard to forecast too far in advance but the conditions on Thursday have some chance for fog in the North Island but the chances of it being heavy at the airports is only about 25% at this stage. Some chances of a breeze in both Auckland and Napier. It can sometimes form very quickly out of clear sky but a slight breeze is always going to help keep it away. We don't always forecast fog (as it takes a lot of extra time to do, which we don't always have the resources for) but if the chances are moderate to high we try to mention it where we can. At this stage we'd say it's a low chance, keeping in mind the disclaimers we just mentioned!  

Cheers

Fog

Hi there, is there any chance of large amount of fog during the morning of tomorrow or the morning of the 28th? (Auckland central)

Hi there, at this stage we're

Hi there, at this stage we're not expecting fog in the Auckland area (at least not widespread) due to the light southerly flow. Check back with our forecasts in case this changes, but for now we don't quite have the right conditions for large foggy areas in Auckland. 

Cheers
