Hi there Not as much as you

Hi there

Not as much as you might think, Stewart Island often shelters Invercargill so while in very cold southwest flows snow may settle in other areas to sea level, but not Invercargill. Wind flows need to be more of a direct southerly or even better southeast for snow to get into Invercargill. When that next event will be I'm not sure at this point in time, will have to wait it out and see if the conditions will suit it at some point this winter.

WW

This is not a complaint - just an observation

'Dry spells increasing again this afternoon with cold, sometimes blustery, southerlies.' hmmm . . looks like the rain has set in to me!

How about now? :)   - WW

Auckland temperature

Hi there, Can you tell me why the last two days in Auckland were so cold? It feels unnatural, even for winter

Hi there - it certainly is

Hi there - it certainly is cold although Auckland has been colder (like a high of just 9 in October a couple years back, today it reached double digits). It's especially cold for two reasons: 1) The air is damp, 2) The southerly air flow is coming from over the mountains and Southern Ocean. Less air moving in from over the Tasman Sea (and air flows from the sea are often "mild" for Auckland, unless a really strong nasty SWer from the Southern Ocean). It's actually (as of 3pm hour) colder in downtown Auckland than it is in Invercargill or Greymouth!! Should warm up a tad in the coming day or two, then back to normal by Sunday. Today is a day Aucklanders can legitimately moan about the cold!

Cheers :)

Christchurch

Hi..just looked at rain radar of your overpaid opposition.. Is there quite a good chance of heavier showers again this afternoon in chch? Cheers keep up the realistic forecasts..

The rain radar that all

The rain radar that all taxpayers colletively fund, but cannot freely use unlike any other western nation on earth, that one!? :) Yes still the chance of an isolated heavier shower but to be honest with you the bulk of the moisture will tonight gradually slide further north up the eastern coastline (mainly of the North Island). So it will see the coastal showers in Canterbury gradually thinning out (which they are just starting to do now in the Christchurch area). May still be a few random heavier ones about though, but hit and miss/luck of the draw sort of thing.

Thanks for the kind feedback about our forecasts, it's appreciated!
Cheers

Snowing in Rotorua!

Just had some snow downtown Rotorua!

Well there you go, thanks

Well there you go, thanks heaps for the report :)

WW

Tararua flooding

It's forecast possible flooding rain today and tomorrow, is it likely to cause major flooding on the scale of a couple of years ago?

Some heavy rain will move

Some heavy rain will move through for a time, it's possible it may cause some fooding. Whether it's to the degree of what happened a few years ago is dependant on how fast or slow this band of rain moves through. Hopefully it's just quick enough that it prevents major issues.

Snow on the hills Rotorua

It snowed around the Rotorua hills this morning. Its pretty cold Lenin town today and I see there is some rain forecasted for later today. Any chance of snow falling in town?

Snow in Rotorua CBD

Well, we got lucky in town last week, didn't we ! A rare CBD snowfall, and didn't it go on for ages !

I wouldn't have thought so.

I wouldn't have thought so. There is snow close by in Mamaku, however it is 560 meters above sea level where as Rotorua is 280 meters. However the weather can throw surprises at you, but mostly I would be saying it doesn't seem very likely but a small chance you could see some flurries.

WW

fog in whangarei tomorrow (friday)

morena, checking on my earlier morning flight tomorrow from whangarei. Any chance of fog tomorrow? THanks, Abi

Hail in New Lynn

Very small bits of hail bounced off the car as I drove along Margan Avenue just after 1 pm. Heavy rain fell in New Lynn North at the same time. Sunshine is warm and washing has dried!

Auckland Hail

Have just had two brief hail showers in west Auckland between 1:00 and 1:40 this afternoon. Just wondering if you guys think there could be more within this cold snap in the next few days? I note tomorrows high is 10 degrees, last time that was the high in Auckland (August 2011 if i recall correctly) it briefly snowed. Even though I think I'm dreaming thinking that could be possible. Keep up your good work guys :)

Thanks for this update! We

Thanks for this update! We actually have been questioning all day if we should include it in the Auckland forecast but so far it's been fairly dry - however now including it as the coldest/most energised portion of this event is now coming into Auckland - and not easing until Friday, so more hail quite likely - amongst the pleasant sunny spells!!

- WW :)

Is there much of a chance of

Is there much of a chance of heavy rain between 2pm - 4pm in Lower Hutt?

Hi there - currently there

Hi there - currently there are some heavy downpours moving into the Wellington area, they are likely to be off and on throughout the next two hours.

WW

how come

how come canterbury gets snow and port hills get alot of snow, and christchurch always get sleet? thanks

Christchurch is near sea

Christchurch is near sea level and it's always going to require very very cold air for snow to settle in Chch, if it's just not cold enough then it won't manage to settle in the city. :)

WW

Clapping hands...

Just wanted to let you know that this APP is awesome!!!

Not looking very likely.

WW

will it be settled snow tomorrow in christchurch like 2011 or is it like a on a off snow thing? regards

On and off if anything,

On and off if anything, outside chance of settling although generally it's not looking as likely.

WW

will christchurch

will christchurch get snow to sea level tomorrow ?

A chance of flurries at times

A chance of flurries at times but it's borderline, the risk gets higher when you get above 100m.

Hi, I am traveling from

Hi, I am traveling from Christchurch to Tekapo on friday morning and I was wondering what the conditions will be like? Thanks!

Hi there - it should be

Hi there - it should be becoming dry on Friday (although may be a lingering shower). More importantly there may be ice or black ice too, with a high coming in to calm things down and bring in big frosts, especially through the interior.
Safe travels!
- WW

Will it be white stufff

will it be fully snowing here in christchurch for overnight because we are so near the port hills and we dont get that here please reply !

Full details in our news

Full details in our news section about the risk for Chch. Look at our detailed 10 day forecast for the city, plus the news story which details all the towns at some risk. For now we don't think Christchurch has a very high chance of snow - but the Port Hills do.

Cheers

WW

Its coming down right now as i speak

well around 9 here in christchurch we are getting alot of snow fluries but do you think this will continue overnight and tomorrow :) ?

Hi there, there's a very fine

Hi there, there's a very fine line between snow and rain in Christchurch right now (and overnight) - the main band is easing though so snow/rain will ease back to showers/snow showers before midnight/overnight. With it being borderline it's very hard to work out if you'll get more snow, or more rain - it's a very fine line of just 100metres (think of that short distance down a street - except it's above you!).

Cheers

patearoa is not dunedin

Hi Folks, Why am I seeing the "now" temperature for patearoa, when I'm on the Dunedin page? What's the "now" temperature for Dunedin? Many thanks

Hi there - yes we're aware of

Hi there - yes we're aware of this and thanks for letting us know. We're going to be requesting that Wunderground (WU) make changes to this as soon as they can once we've completed some other work. Our Dunedin forecasts (that we write) are most definitely based/focused on Dunedin but the 'now' data from Wunderground is coming from an incorrect location so will be fixed. The reason this hasn't been sorted yet is because we're going through all the WU data and making a list of improvements. There are a few other places with odd boundaries/locations - their data is generally really good but clearly not if it's giving you an incorrect location! Thanks for letting us know - we hope to have these issues fixed by spring but may escalate the Dunedin issue due to it being a main centre.

Cheers

WW

Thanks Weather Watch!
