G'day there NYE, it's looking

G'day there

NYE, it's looking mostly cloudy. Chance of a shower or two during the day but expect long dry spells too. Winds breezy from the west or southwest. New Year's Day sees morning cloud break to sunny spells, southwesterly winds.

So it isn't looking that wet or anything however a shower or two is possible for much of the day and evening then starting to dry out more overnight.

Hope things go well for you! :)

Rain for the night

Hi I live in the Auckland Area and was just wondering if we will be getting heavy rain tonight. We are camping at the moment and just want to be prepared.

Hi there, yes we do expect

Hi there, yes we do expect the odd heavy shower, easing overnight. All the best!

Wind

Why is it still so windy in tauranga, usually it's a lot calmer by now...or am I wrong?

Hi there - we have a bit of a

Hi there - we have a bit of a spring pattern still with us (high pressure to the west, low pressure to the south) . The winds may be a bit off and on, as they sometimes can be in December. Remember New Zealand is comprised of two small islands in the roaring 40s, so unless we have a big high over the top of us our weather does tend to be cloudier and windier.

Cheers

Auckland "summer"

Merry Xmas guys, Wow the forecast for the first week of holidays in Auckland looks pretty cold, average and gloomy. Is there any change coming for some actual "summer" before we all go back to work? In my case on the 9th... hoping its not all going to be this crappy Cheers

Hi there - yes the Southern

Hi there - yes the Southern Ocean area is dictating our weather at the moment, hence the colder southerly changes coming in. We do see some hot, sunny, days next week in Auckland. January may also see a swing away from these cooler changes and into hotter conditions.  
Cheers
WW

And for Wellington???!

It's been grim for months here! No spring to speak of and summer has been diabolical so far. Do you see any hope for us in the coming weeks?? Fingers crossed!

A good spell of weather

A good spell of weather coming Boxing Day to Weds - then down hill again with wind and showers. Hopefully in January we'll see a La Nina swing in our pattern, that could create a hotter, drier, summer for you. Make the most of Boxing Day to Wednesday :) Fingers crossed for a change after Jan 1!

THE WARMEST PLACE IN NZ for the year.

Every year we are all told which city is the SUNNIEST place in New Zealand. How about the WARMEST place in New Zealand. Some places in New Zealand never get credit..... Susan Napier

HI Susan, NIWA normally

HI Susan, NIWA normally compiles a list of which places were hottest, coldest, sunniest, wettest etc - at the end of each season (and usually an annual round up).  They are the gate keepers to public data (the reason the Government has organised an official review into their practices is because others can't freely display this public data we have all paid for). So, if you have any issues about which places are warmest you're best to contact NIWA directly via Twitter or their website for more info (as your taxes fund them).

Cheers

Rotorua Lakes

Mid Jan? That's a bit far away for me to be able to tell you anything unfortunately. Feel free to come back about 7 to 10 days out from mid Jan and I might be able to help then. :)

Christmas Eve

Hi Chaps - Seasons Greetings to you, and thank you for another year of accuracy, superb service and interesting feedback!!! I know it's a little far out to be very accurate, but is it likely to be wet In Auckland on Christmas Eve do you think - have to fit in mowing the lawns before the family onslaught arrive!

Hi there, thanks for the very

Hi there, thanks for the very kind feedback, much appreciated :) 
It's definitely too far out to lock in, but, the good news is we do predict plenty of dry weather next week. So if not Christmas Eve, the day before maybe :) We'll have much more details probably by this Friday. We don't want to have daily updates as the models are moving around too much, but we are seeing a trend/pattern emerging and we'll share this on Friday hopefully - to cover the build up to Christmas Day and our first more 'locked in' Christmas Day forecast.

Cheers
Philip Duncan and the team

Thanks Guys - hope you all a

Thanks Guys - hope you all a good one - and get to have some sort of break for keeping us informed!!! I will watch with baited breath!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summer time vibe

G'day Weather watch team Firstly many thanks for the site its very accurate and you are most generous with your knowledge. I've had a look at the forecast for the next ten days and when the "partly cloudy skies" days arrive over the weekend and the beginning of next week, will it feels like summer again? To me this current weather feels like spring again !! I'm based on the west coast of the Auckland region and it felt cold today ! Once again thanks for the most excellent site .. Many thanks Henri C

G'day there Henri Thanks for

G'day there Henri

Thanks for the kind words! Is much appreciated by the team.

The pattern is quite changeable at the moment and yes your right quite spring like again, conditions may settled down a little early next week with more sun then we've had lately, temperatures in the low 20's although southwesterlies may still be a little breezy.

We'll have to wait it out for a little longer yet till we see signs off summer I think.

Hi Phil Early indications look very promising for Xmas to me. A long way to go but what are your thoughts? Also, I take this opportunity to wish you guys all the very best for Xmas & thank you for providing an excellent service Cheers Dave

Howdy Dave, thanks very much

Howdy Dave, thanks very much for the kind message - and Merry Christmas to you too :)   Yes our feelings are that things are currently looking better rather than worse for Christmas Day. We just this minute put a story up talking about the long range models, take a look at it :) We'll have more details to lock in later this week.

Cheers - and all the best for the summer

Christmas in the park Auckland

Hi is Saturday afternoon/evening going to be clear or raining, Christmas in the park is on and would love to go if its not raining. Any induction?

Hi there, have written the

Hi there, have written the below in response to a question on the weather for Saturday in Auckland.

"The rain moving through tomorrow looks timed to move in early afternoon (1pm perhaps) then ease late afternoon to the odd shower for the rest of the day. Northerlies then winds change gusty west to southwest as rain eases to the odd shower.

- WW Team"

Updated 10:28am Saturday:  There's a chance showers / drizzle may linger longer. Sunday looks even drier.

Hope that helps! :)

Weather

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/auckland?page=1 Hi WW, NASA are saying that since there latest study has proven that the Antarctic ice shelf is crumbling/melting and correcting around the Antarctic sea we in NZ are going to be permanently weather affected due to the expanding icepack developing as the south pole melts? Is this correct please. If so why hasn't Government advised us all, do they know? Please warm them please. https://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/antarctic-sea-ice-reaches-new-record-maximum See the data on this web page recently. See the expanding sea ice building up (see above attached) as the Antarctica ice shelf crumbles into the sea, - adjacent to our shores. Making the ice pack move closer to NZ causing weather changes I propose. Subject: EVIDENCE OF OUR END TIMES APPROACHING AS PLANET MELTS https://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/antarctic-sea-ice-reaches-new-record-maximum https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2016/eye-popping-view-of-co2- The 3-D visualization reveals in startling detail the complex patterns in which carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases, decreases and moves around the globe over the course of September 2014 to September 2015.critical-step-for-carbon-cycle-science The visualization showcases information about global carbon dioxide fields that has not been seen before in such detail: The rise and fall of carbon dioxide in the Northern Hemisphere throughout a year; the influence of continents, mountain ranges and ocean currents on weather patterns and therefore carbon dioxide movement; the regional influence of highly active photosynthesis in places like the Corn Belt in the U.S.

Saturday 10/12

Hi there, Thanks for replying to my previous query. Just wondering if you had an update on when the weather should clear by on Saturday. We are playing in the Avondale-Auckland region.

Hi there The rain moving

Hi there

The rain moving through tomorrow looks perfectly timed to move in early afternoon (1pm perhaps) then ease late afternoon (4 or 5 pm) to the odd shower for the rest of the day. Northerlies then winds change gusty west to southwest as rain eases to the odd shower.

About the best I can do for now. Hope your game goes well if you decide to go ahead.

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

WW

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 :)  

Cheers
WW

The All blacks and the

The All blacks and the Wallabies both play rugby by the same rule book. KFC and Macca`s both deliver fastfood, Ford and Holden both run on the same basic technologies but get you where you need to be. The weather should be similar here as anywhere else. One saying it will rain and another saying it wont or another predicting opposite to the others dosn`t appease any audience I know of

The point is, choose the one

We and other forecasters play by the same rule book - but we have different outcomes. The point is, choose the one that is most accurate to you. If one says rain and one did not, then clearly one was wrong or not accurate enough for you. We have different audiences, we communicate using different words, we interpret data in different ways. we use different computers to work it out. No forecaster is 100% accurate - so you choose the one you find more accurate, it may be us it may not be. WeatherWatch exists because we have independent forecasts which sometimes are different to others and this difference is precisely why the New Zealand Government & rural clients hire us for rain forecasting during droughts and dry events. 

All the best,

WW

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

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

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.

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?
