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 :)

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. :)

Summer winds

Hi there , thanks for the wonderful site ! Do u think we'll get a break from these SW winds at any point in west auckland the near future? Regards

G'day there Possibly on the

G'day there

Possibly on the 11th January, it's not looking like the wind will die completely but it may be less breezier then it is at the moment.  Then another shot at a calmer day on Saturday 14th Jan. Looking a bit windy otherwise.

We'll all have to wait until February and March perhaps for calmer conditions.

Thanks for the kind words!

Summer Weather

Auckland summer weather today, huge SE updraft of cirrus. A few cirrus streaks but full sunshine. Lots of blue sky, a delight to see. Have watched the godwits flying, very early as usually practice March. Milky skies SE, should get a halo today. A gentle wind moves the trees

Jan weather

Are we going to get actual summer this year? The temperatures are ridiculously low for this time of the year. Especially at night. This is for Auckland region btw.

Hopefully later in January /

Hopefully later in January / Feb conditions should become more settled, that is the standard pattern. Beyond that one will have to pray for an actual summer :D

- Aaron

A nice break from the Souwesters in Auckland

Doesn't get much better than it has been in Auckland today. Hardly a cloud anywhere in the sky all day. Quite rare for this area - usually some clouds pop up in the afternoon. Air temp may be on the cooler side but the sun is making it feel much hotter than it is and the lack of humidity is nice. I hope Serena is still in the area!

Yes finally some good weather

Yes finally some good weather for Auckland today, much needed :)

Warm weather

Hi guys, Just wondering if these south westerly winds are going to die out any time soon? Would love for some warmer weather. It does still seem unseasonably cold at the moment! Cheers

Not right now. As

Not right now. As anticyclones sit in the Tasman Sea, around the outside we have southwesterly winds feeding into New Zealand. The 11th onwards may see a change and the weather looks warmer for Southland then however a sizeable front follows the next day. But it could mean from then onwards warmer conditions could become more favourable.

- WW Team

Serena

any response to Serena about the wind?

Wind wind wind, can't really

Wind wind wind, can't really help that or control it from where I'm sitting. Has been windy about Auckland and other parts of NZ for a while. Will just have to wait for still anticyclonic conditions when they manage to position themselves right over the country.

Can you make it go away!!! ;-)

Not just yet although today should provide some relief about Auckland :)

drought

Hi again, probably worded question wrongly Actually wondering whether the summer will remain dry as i would need to sell cattle if it was. Regards Ross.

G'day Ross Man personally not

G'day Ross

Man personally not my field of expertise, I tend to deal with day to day forecasting not seasonal stuff. Phil is on holiday at present due back on board on the 18th Jan. So I could say it's looking fairly dry up until then, Phil could provide some guidance on conditions past then when he's back if you write in on or just after the 18th.

Sorry I can't help just now.

Cheers
Aaron

january

Hi Guys.Can we expect any decent amounts of rain in jan north of Auckland. Thanks Ross.

G'day there At this stage

G'day there

At this stage going by what we see in model information, not for the first half of January atleast sorry to say. Have a look here:

Scroll through the days and you'll see for yourself how conditions are shaping up.

Crazy weather reported here.

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

Hi there No idea about all

Hi there

No idea about all this sorry, best to contact NIWA perhaps? Hope you find what you are after :)

Dark clouds about

A mainly sunny day in New Lynn after early cloud. Halo seen over the City. Beautiful storm like clouds down by the Airport and N of Rosebank. A Happy New Year to all! Thanks for all the forecasting accuracy! It is 9:41pm and the fireworks are widespread , like Guy Fawkes. A red flare sailed high over the Manukau in the wind as an ominous twilight showed Zelda

Hmmmm

Sitting in glenfield Auckland and none of the forecast sun all day, in fact thick dark Cloud? What gives? Happy Ny to you and team

Hmm, it was sunny with some

Hmm, it was sunny with some high cloud just before midday. It has obviously changed.

Thanks and happy NY to you too! :)

Strange yellow orb

I briefly sighted a yellow glowing orb in the sky this morning above Auckland ... I've googled it and it sounds a lot like a what people have described as a sun. Could you shed any light on this ? Kind Regards Henri C

Lol, just in time too! Should

Lol, just in time too! Should be good weather around Auckland tomorrow for New Years :)

Wedding!

Hi team, my wedding is on the 5th of Jan and was wondering if you had any detailed info for Auckland for this date. Have seen some conflicting reports. Thanks!

Hi there That is a little

Hi there

That is a little while away so what I say now may change some what by the time the 5th comes around, but currently I'm seeing southwesterly breezes, a mix of sun and cloud and dry, no showers at this point in time.

High's in the low 20's.

Hope you have a great day!

- Aaron

Where will there be sun?

Hi guys- will anywhere in NZ have decent sun and /or summer heat next week as I'll travel! Can't stand spending the last week of my leave looking at aucklands miserable forecast. Or do I have to look to Aus or the islands? Cheers

Hi there! Yes a very gloomy

Hi there! Yes a very gloomy week in our largest city! Sunniest weather is in the east - so eastern Cormandel Peninsula, Tauranga, Gisborne, Napier etc. Although today and tomorrow will be cloudy in many areas. Hopefully a bit more sunshine in Auckland developing later on Friday and for the weekend. By the way, Napier has a high of 30 on Sunday and 32 on Monday (and that has been fairly normal lately for them - no shortage of sun and heat in Hawke's Bay!)

- WW

Just a bit confused

G'day After reading one of your articles I'm just a little confused .. Are you saying that this spring like weather pattern continues to mid Jan and then it could be replaced by a La Nina pattern ie very wet and cloudy? This in regards to the Auckland region. Many thanks in advance for a reply and thanks once again for a fantastic site. Regards Henri C

Hi there Henri, thanks for

Hi there Henri, thanks for the kind words! Totally understandable that this is a bit confusing, especially for Auckland as - to be honest - both patterns can bring more cloudy weather. We're saying that La Nina is expected to affect NZ at some point, especially with it impacting Australia so close by. Once we get a break in the highs (possibly in mid Jan) it makes NZ more vulnerable to seeing a more typical La Nina pattern (greater chance of easterlies, humidity, heat and heavy downpours). At this stage we can't know what will happen in the second half of January but our feeling is that as summer heats up further the weather systems north of NZ may become more dominant and some computer models also indicate this...but for now we're stuck in this spring-like pattern.
Cheers

Philip Duncan

Heat and humidity sounds

Heat and humidity sounds great to me ! Thanks for your reply :) Henri C

weather

this is not summer we use to have years ago when I was young it was so hot

Summer is a myth

Another crappy grey freezing cold day in Auckland, can't remember so many dull days and so cold. Long range forecast till I go back to work on 9th horrible too. Sorry - just needed to vent, it's not your fault ! :)

Don't worry, you're not alone

Don't worry, you're not alone and this is why we are here! :)  Hopefully some much sunnier, warmer, days within the next 10 days - just mixed in with the cloud...

Cheers!
WW

ANOTHER CRACKING AUCKLAND SUMMER'S DAY...

...FIFTY SHADES OF GREY!!!! Why is there so much cloud?

Hi there - it's a bit

Hi there - it's a bit depressing each morning isn't it!?  The westerlies are to blame. La Nina this year is weak and hasn't yet really had much impact on New Zealand so instead the westerly pattern (from spring) is still going. This summer was never (in our mind) going to be a sunny one for Auckland but we did think it would be a little warmer than this. We may have to wait until January for more of a change. Sorry!!!

Cheers

WW

Worst start to summer

The weather in Auckland has been bad, really bad. I am amazed at how close Coromandel is yet they have sun and temperatures 4-5 degrees warmer than us. I really hope January brings a change, so far there hasn't been a day where I have thought I need to go for a swim to cool down. I am still wearing long sleeve T's most of the days because of the cold winds and lack of sun shine!! moan moan

Enjoy it!

I for one is loving this weather!! It sure beats sun burns and the beaches are not even crowded, its fantastic. Lets hope it sticks around!

Move to UK then

If you love this weather then move to the UK. Pretty sure you are in the minority. Most of us love a bit of sun and warm in the few months of summer..

stars in the sky too bright

I have noticed for the time of November and now into dec.starting SW seems ending NW a star like none other than I've ever seen before its so bright cant even almost stair at it to long its more as if its a reflection on another moon of another light source or something just hitting the very tip of a celestial body of some kind CAN ANY TRUE EXPLANATION B TOLD HERE WITHOUT SOME CRAZY LIE . WHAT IM SEEING , seeing is believing ,my eyes are not crazy!!! its not just me rite

Bright star

Would it not be Venus?

Waiheke Island New Years Eve

Hi Whats the weather looking like on Waiheke for New Years Eve? Cheers
