soil moisture

My present moisture reading today is 16 cd in tekiri on the farm can you explain the reading for me what is cd

Hi there, we've never seen

Hi there, we've never seen that unit before so reached out to the former Principal Scientist at Weather.com and this was his response: 

"Got to figure that's 16 celsius degrees .. and is a dew point .. giving moderate humidity conditions ..  

but could just be a typo  .. I've never seen units of "cd" or "CD" .. are you sure its wasn't deg-C or something similar?".

Hope thats helpful to you!
Cheers

Brief Thunderstorm

Wow, a big boom and a huge sheet of lightning West Auckland at approx 1:30am followed by a long rumble as the storm moved away. Lovely lot of heavy rain X2 for a short time also in New Lynn.

Worst Summer Ever.... more

Worst Summer Ever.... more cloud and rain this weekend, had seat heaters on in AKL this morning in late Jan! Reminds me of 2011?

Summer

Will Auckland experience actual summer temperatures this year or will it continue to be as freezing and as unpleasant as it is right now?

Hi there Honestly don't know

Hi there

Honestly don't know myself. I can look ahead the next 5 to 10 days but beyond that it gets a bit difficult. February and March are traditionally the most settled time of year for Auckland so we'll see if it turns good then :)

At the moment there's not much wind at all, the wind was only ever meant to pick up overnight from the northwest so still some time to go yet :)

Auckland's Summer

Hi, I was wondering if the temps and weather conditions we're now having here in Auckland are the norm?

G'day there It's probably a

G'day there

It's probably a bit windier and cloudier then normal for Auckland although I would advise contacting NIWA for official information in that regard. February and March are the least windy months typically so still time for some settled weather to arrive, fingers crossed!

Will there be any storm

Will there be any storm weather in Christchurch over the coming days?

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are more restricted to the West Coast :)

Hi What are the chances of

Hi What are the chances of the Auckland region get some decent rain next Sunday? The maps rain look promising . Getting pretty dry. Keep up the good work. Thanks

Hi thereWell it's 6 days

Hi there

Well it's 6 days out. The chances are probably not overally high right now but as Sunday gets closer and model information holds steady (if it stays consistent) then the chances will gradually go up. So lets hope it holds as Auckland does need some rain.

Thanks :)

- WW Team

Thanks , going by this

Thanks , going by this mornings maps it's already fallen apart. Maybe Thursday might be a better chance fingers crossed, Cheers

Weekend rain

Is the worst of Auckland's rain going to hold off til after 2pm on Sunday do you think, or is the whole day going to be pretty wet?

Hi there Yes the worst of it

Hi there

Yes the worst of it should hold off till late afternoon / evening (5/6pm). During the day itself only brings the risk of a shower at this stage, it should be mainly dry.

Summer 2011/12

Good memory Guest - it was continually overcast, though more rain fell as i recall in 2011/12. S'westers (Akl region anyway) reigned supreme in 2011, but remarkably similar pattern this year! Funny, meant to be a weak La Nina this season- i note now all services saying it's that weak that it won't have any effect on us. Also, after a mega El Nino last year, we had predominately East/North east winds(Rodney district) for the entire summer, when it should have been like we have this summer - W/SW - Go figure!

Thanks for that information!

Thanks for that information! :)

WW Team

is this a repeat of the Summer 2011-12??

More cloud than usual this summer, notably not as wet thought. The difference in the westerlies has made it cooler? I'm hoping that it would continue.

Hi thereYes definately a

Hi there

Yes definitely a fair amount of cloud so far this summer. Is it a repeat of the summer 11/12? I can't remember to be honest! Well for Auckland anyway, where I was in Canterbury we had plenty of good weather then from memory. It is what it is. :)

Hi , hopefully in the future

Hi , hopefully in the future your forecast could include hourly wind and rain. Would be helpful for our Farming business. For planning if spraying that day or next. Or mowing etc. Thanks

Hi thereThat does sound like

Hi there

That does sound like a good idea and I will relay that to Phil. Only issue is more then likely that would require a fair amount of funding to program model data / information into a format that suits our website, funding which we just don't have being such a small business. Hopefully in future though.

Thanks for writing in! :)

G'day there

Over the Xmas / January period we don't do video's, it's been the same every year since we started making video's.

Hopefully we'll start up again in February I think it is.

Morning sun in Auckland?

Maybe some sun above the low lying cloud in West Auckland. Moist humid air about at ground level. A wonderful clear starlit night until the cloud crept in!

Yes that cloud built much

Yes that cloud built much quicker then I initially expected, certainly a mainly cloudy day now.

sub tropical rain activity

Hi, About 10 days ago you mentioned that one or more of the weather models indicated increased activity( tropical lows) in the Pacific for the second half of January which may improve the chances of rain for the east coast of the Nth Island. Have you an update on this. I am from CHB and desperate for rain!! Very dry here.

Hi thereMust have been Phil

Hi there

Currently no tropical lows looking to come anywhere near NZ out to the 25th January which is basically as far as I can see, I'd say the rest of January too however. But we are talking about very long distant forecasts and they aren't all that reliable, hence this talk 10 days ago of a potential increase in tropical activity does not look to be coming true. It's only ever a possibility anyway so it can do what it's looking to do now and that is no increase in tropical activity. I would tend to stick with the trend which is dry at the moment, so would be edging that way more then I would a tropical low.

So apart from the odd brief spit or drizzle patch as one or two fronts pass through coming up it's looking mainly dry for the foreseeable future in Hawkes Bay.

Where's the rain?!?

Hiya, Any chance of a decent downpour in Warkworth over the next two weeks? The water tanks are suffering a lot earlier this year! Cheers :)

G'day there Friday morning

G'day there

Friday morning brings a period of rain / showers, wouldn't say downpour, it's only 1 to 3mm.

Sunday 15th brings a better chance of more rain (5 to 10mm) however the further we go into the future, forecasts will become less reliable.

That's the best I can see at the moment. There may be a few showers etc between then 20th and 25th however none of it totals over 5mm and it's even further into the future so no guarantees there.

- Aaron

Sunday

Hi there, Do you think I can have hopes that Auckland on Sunday will get better than this? Or is this an optimistic forecast already!!? Thanks!

Hi there Sunday not looking

Hi there

Sunday not looking the best. Mostly cloudy with the chance of a shower. Rain from late afternoon.

Wednesday afternoon onwards starts to look better and Thursday in particular could be good. :)

Cheers

Tawhirimatea

Tena koutou e te WW Team, do you know who has upset Tawhirimatea so that he is embracing us with his fury for days on end? Is it La Nina or El Nino or some other deity? Can you send these guys a message to lay off and give us a few days respite with no wind. Even our poor pohutukawa tree has no more red flowers to throw at us! :-) Kia ora koutou. Thank you.

G'day there, not sure which

G'day there, not sure which deity is causing this lot of weather.

New Zealand is quite a small country though, slight variances within a La Nina or El Nino could bring different scenerios in both situations. I don't believe it's all that straight forward.

Hopefully some settled weather comes later this month / February :)

Thanks for writing in!

Aaron

Summer

Is it just me or has this summer been much colder than usual?

Hi there Yes more then likely

Hi there

Yes more then likely it has been however last years hot summer may make this summer feel like a drastic change even though temperatures could only be slightly below normal. Either way we'll have to wait for official figures to know the truth on that one.

- WW Team

A few light showers

A few light showers, lots of sunshine & patches of blue sky as gentle SW wind blows. Warming up well in New Lynn as I relocate monarch caterpillars to hang. Managed to squish wasp as it came for a drink. Great forecasting!

Thankyou! Hope you have a

Thankyou! Hope you have a great day :)

Summer still waiting to arrive in Waikato

So far this season has been colder and a lot windier than recent years. Do you see any improvement for February as my daughter has an outdoor wedding in the middle of the month? Feb and March are normally very nice, but the signs are not encouraging so far Thanks

Hi there Yes it has. I

Hi there

Yes it has. I couldn't say what is going to happen in February right now, I just don't know it's too far out. We normally deal with the next 5 to 10 days.

The only thing I could say which you have elluded to is that February and March are traditionally more settled so hopefully that is the case! All the best for your daughters wedding, feel free to come back and ask us the weather up to 10 days out :)

- WW Team

February weather

Thanks for that. I will keep an eye on the trending conditions through January, and fingers crossed we settle into a good spell later

South Westerly Winds

Hi there, just wondering, what is the root cause for the weak high pressures which seem to be sitting over the north island and are not extending over the south, protecting it from the low pressures in the southern ocean. The average temperatures in Central Otago have been well down on the averages!

G'day thereHonestly not

G'day there

Honestly not something I look into much myself, I tend to deal with day to day forecasting here at weatherwatch. It could be related to an active southern ocean, active tropics etc... Phil who is away at the moment (due back 18th Jan) may have more to say. Otherwise this type of question is more in the arena of NIWA as it's in the "climate" field, they may put off answering a question as such until they have compiled their information together for this summer to see what's going on. And if that is the case then imagine how useless I would be as I have a minuscule fraction of the amount of money coming my way as they would coming their way, lol.

Sorry to not be of much help right now, may the wind blow. Face into it like Lieutenant Dan on the shrimping boat :)

Wind

Moved here 3 months ago. Wind has been constant. Is this normal. Hope not. Wanganui

Hi there I belive this summer

Hi there

I belive this summer has been windier then normal. Statistically speaking the calmest months are usually February and March so we aren't there just yet. :)
