G'day there, thanks for that!

G'day there, thanks for that! We try! :)

I would say there will be some shower activity, perhaps even the odd brief heavy fall but from early afternoon conditions start becoming drier with longer dry spells and sun a little more frequent. The odd shower may continue off and on for the rest of the day but less frequent then the morning by the looks. Winds will be brisk from the southwest (30 to 35 km/h), easing late afternoon / evening.

Have a good game either way! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Reply to Jason

Rainfall stat's are not that easy to find. Niwa cover them in their monthly summary, but hard to get an accurate picture for like a 12 month period. I live NW Akl (Waimauku) and i can tell you that we have recorded in our raingauge far more rainfall over the last 6 weeks than Metservice data suggests (even though they have a Whenuapai station), substantial quantity difference too!

But, i can tell you that Sept 2016, was the fourth wettest on record for Auckland since records began(1896?), and Akl has the second least amount of sun for a September since records begun also.(even though it was the sunniest of the main centres)

My long term forecast - Crap spring weather to continue until after Xmas, maybe mid Jan, where hopefully will begin to see some summer. More daylight hours to watch the crap weather (annual bleat about early daylight saving hours)

Springs in this region are diabolical really, and appears to deteriorate each year. 

 

Cheers Malcolm

Labour Weekend

Hi Phil

The models seem to be all over the place when it comes to Labour Weekend, although high pressure seems to be around us then.

Have you got any early thoughts on it especially for the Coromandel?

Cheers Dave

G'day DaveAaron here. As you

G'day Dave

Aaron here. As you note there appears to be some high pressure around then so hopefully a mainly settled weekend for the Coromandel with sunny weather!, beyond that can't say too much right now as it is a while away. Phil will have some videos coming out next week that will likely talk about Labour Weekend and what's in store. :)

Matauri Bay, Bay of Islands

Hi. Playing golf Saturday afternoon and looking to understand whether we will get much rain or whether we should try and swap to Sunday. Windy too right?

 

 

G'day thereSunday does look

G'day there

Sunday does look to be the better day, and winds will be a bit lighter then they are on Saturday.

Saturday will likely have the odd shower in the afternoon, I wouldn't say rain but showers for sure. Sunday is mainly dry, low risk of a shower passing over from the west at times but mainly dry. Definately drier then Saturday anyway.

Hope your game goes well!

Update on Puhoi Weather on the 15th

Hi there,

I'm still watching the weather like a hawk for the 15th to see what it will be like in Puhoi for our wedding!

What are the chances we might just get the occasional shower or next to no rain? Keeping fingers crossed for mostly decent weather during the day!

Thanks 

Hi thereCurrently it's

Hi there

Currently it's looking like a mix of sun / cloud and occasional showers, so there will be dry periods but also a few showers now and then, a low risk there may be a brief heavy fall in showers but if there is any they won't last long.

Winds fairly breezy from the southwest during the day.

That's about the best I can do for you at the moment. Hope your wedding goes well either way! :)

- WW Team

Please stop the rain!

Any idea when we might see the sun at all in Tauranga, it has pretty much rained every day for the last month, I know it's spring but this is beyond ridiculous!

Hi there, yes Tauranga has

Hi there, yes Tauranga has been wetter than average this spring and more rain/showers/cloud are on the way over the next several days. However next week may see some sunnier days, we have high pressure rolling in a bit more often. Fingers crossed for you!!

Cheers

When will we see the sun for full day

Hi  there when will this  rain go away  and we can see a full day of sun??

Its  like been a month havnt  seen thw sun for the full day.

When will we start seeing  the start  of summer?

Thnx  sal  

Technically only the South

Technically only the South Pole will have sun for the full day (sorry, couldn't resist) - but we know what you mean. At the moment the weather pattern favours cloudy areas, so not really seeing a lot of full sun at the moment. Might be a better chance later in October. Certainly more sunnier days coming up - but they are mixed in with plenty of cloudy/gloomy days too.

Summer conditions should start to be kick in during November at some point, usually in the last couple of weeks.

Cheers

Labour weekend in Auckland

Hi Chaps!

I know it's a wee way out, but we desperatley need to get a bin and get stuck into the garden!  What are your thoughts for the weather over the long weekend at this stage?

G'day there :)Labour weekend

G'day there :)

Labour weekend is still a fair way away but current modeling hints at a ridge over the North Island meaning it could be settled around then, that's the most detail I would want to say at this stage considering how far we are away.

Lets hope it works out to be a sunny and settled weekend :)

Lightning offshore to come over land?

Hi there. Thanks so much for the lightning trackers - it has certainly kept me up to date and aware of what the weather is doing It has also kept me awake at night when I see almost 7000 lightning strikes offshore embedded in this front that is supposed to hit us today. In all forecasts there isnt any suggestions of high or severe thunderstorms...yet these strikes suggest there might be something quite nasty lurking??? Are you able to give me an insight as to (a) what the main difference between the two maps you show on the lightning tracker page (b) what generally might happen once this front reaches land mass - does the make up of the front change?

I am on a yacht so therefore is a rather large conductor sticking up towards the sky!

Thanks again

Hi thereThe first map on that

Hi there

The first map on that page will more then likely give more accurate information. I can't to be honest remember the exact methods they use to get the information but the people who own the detectors are mostly hobbyists.

Another site to use for lightning information is this: http://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/world/new-zealand

Metservice has the most accurate network however it will cost money to access.

As you'll note the main lightning activity is more to the northwest, it may well cross Northland however further south there may only be isolated strikes although there is a chance some afternoon heating could bring further activity further south then Northland.

When this front makes landfall it is likely to just continue onwards and bring showers then some rain, perhaps a few heavy falls in the mix as radar information shows.

Happy sailing! :)

Wedding on the 15th

Hi there,

We're having our wedding in Puhoi on the 15th and it can't rain!

What are the chances that the weather might change prior to then?

Thanks!

Looks like a low will be

Looks like a low will be tracking south of NZ. The silver lingings? 1) The low is a long way south of Puhoi  2) It looks showery, so hit and miss wet weather and you may not have a terrible day where you are.  The reality checks? 1) It may not be a calm, dry, day.  2) It's spring and changeable! 

Hopefully not too bad overall but at this stage not a calm/settled day - but perhaps check in again next week as we start to fine tune the Saturday forecast ourselves.

All the best for your big day!
Cheers
WW weekend team

Please Mr Weatherman

Can you give us some decent weather in Auckland on Sunday, it's the Pink Ribbon Ride that over 500+ motorbikes are expected to partake in my my little bike won't handle the rain and wind and I REALLY want to do this ride and raise money for Breast Cancer so please please please can we have some low wind sunshine day on Sunday 

Um, Sunday isn't looking too

Um, Sunday isn't looking too flash at this stage I'm really sorry.  At this stage a 90% chance of rain developing. Some models show it may not arrive until late morning/noon, others show it arriving around dawn. (Hard to be precise when things are so windy and changeable in spring). A low is developing over northern New Zealand on Sunday and that places a band of rain over Auckland during Sunday. Keep an eye on our forecasts for updates. 

All the best
Philip Duncan

Hi thereWhere for? It's

Hi there

Where for? It's spring at the moment so changeable conditions with spells of rain are likely for the next we while. :)

WW

Hi there - might be some

Hi there - might be some breaks in the rain over the next two weeks as the westerly flow has highs in it and dry spells. The downside is we have heavy downpours in between! No end in sight just yet for the rain events.

chch storms

hi on thrsday in chch we get storms bfor 4 pm cherrs.

Hi thereI can't time it down

Hi there

I can't time it down to the hour unfortunately but our best bet is if there are storms (it's only a chance of storms) they would most likely be late afternoon / evening. So before 4pm would seem unlikely, a better chance just after.

Hope that helps!

Hi is the weather any good for fishing inner gulf tomorrow? thanks

Hi there, rain is expected

Hi there, rain is expected tonight then clears Weds AM but tomorrow looks windier with brisk to strong westerlies kicking in, so probably not the best sorry.

Sunday 9th

I am hosting a kids party from early afternoon. I have a bouncy castle booked but the report is terrible. Any chance this freak weather might miss us in west harbour,  Auckland? 

Hi there, the rain may be

Hi there, the rain may be quite similar to what we had this past Sunday where some parts of Auckland had a few hours of heavy rain, others had lighter falls only. Looks like the front will cross over all of Auckland, including West Harbour, but hard to say when it will ease - perhaps early afternoon for some, mid to late afternoon for others. Still a long way out so keep an eye on the rain maps, it's the best way to gauge the timing of rain ... and good luck!!

Auckland weather

Hi Guys

We need to fly to Wellington Wed & thurs respectivley due to a family bereavement - what are the chances of fog both mornings please?

Hi there, sorry to hear of

Hi there, sorry to hear of your reason for travelling. The positive news is that fog is unlikely both days due to fairly breezy nor'westers. Might be some low cloud and isolated thunderstorms around the North Island but nothing jumping out as a major problem for air travellers. 

Kind regards

lightning

The lightning tracker is lit up light a xmas tree.. will it be like that when it hits auckland or will it die at sea

Hi there - it sure is! This

Hi there - it sure is! This is due to the low leaving Australia and the eastern side (in the mid Tasman where the tracker is showing) displaying the tropical northerly flow that's lighting up the thunderstorms!  We do expect thunderstorms and the potential for localised flooding on Sunday in the North Island - at this stage we can't say if it will specifically hit Auckland as, yes, we do expect the front to weaken before arriving. It may flare up again in other parts of the North Island during Sunday but at this stage Auckland isn't in the direct firing line for the more intense downpours (but this may change, so keep up to date over the weekend - but the theme this week is for other more rural areas to be more exposed)

Cheers

Rain

I live in the waikato and would like to know what is causing us to have so much wet weather? When is it likely to be fine again for any significant amount of time? You guys are great. Thanks Angela

Hi Angela, thanks for the

Hi Angela, thanks for the question (and kind feedback!). The wet weather over Waikato has been caused by a lot of low air pressure around the north of the country and a big high to our west - this has worked to push a very humid/wet sub-tropical-like easterly across Waikato (helping trigger these big afternoon downpours too). By this Sunday the storm that hit Australia yesterday wil finally reach us - but it won't be as a storm by then, it will be as a big westerly change. This means, for Waikato, more heavy downpours possible on Sunday and next Wednesday but hopefully plenty more sunny spells. Also, the windy westerlies will help dry things out a bit. Check out the update on our homepage (from 8:40am) as it covers off the big change coming to our pattern. No end in sight for rainy days for Waikato - but what is changing from this weekend is an increase in sunnier, windier, days too :)

Cheers

A few spits of rain

A few spits of rain on SE windows tonight.  A great day of sunshine.

Sundog & cirrus skies a delight to see at days end.

Fingers crossed for no fog

Is there any chance of fog Saturday morning Chc airport? Catching flight connecting with international connection so can't have any disruptions

Hi thereActually say yes

Hi there

Actually yes there is a chance, but fog is very difficuilt to forecast and especially looking at it 4 to 5 days away. But a very weak area of low pressure and possible clear skies overnight Friday may lead to some fog on Saturday morning. Feel free to check back if you like and ask again, we won't ever be able to tell you yes definately fog will happen or no it won't happen but we'll be able to say yes a chance exisits etc.... I know it's not a definate answer but best we can manage.
