Hi there

100 to 150mm looks possible so this could cause flooding issues indeed.

Voice of reason

Once again you are showing your class as you shine a ray of sense and reason through the dark cloud of hype and hysteria being generated by various other media outlets about this latest storm.

Oh wow - this is quite

Flecks of rain

Plenty of flecks of rain in New Lynn. NE windows showing it as is the humid atmosphere. Ugh humidity!

Videos

Hi WeatherWatch folks, thanks for the information packed videos. Makes forward planning a lot easier. May I make a suggestion...would it be possible to make the New Zealand land mass either darker or heavily outlined so as to enable watchers to see the country under the weather event being discussed. When there are stormy conditions or cloudy conditions or just plain maps full of pesky isobars, it is sometimes difficult to see NZ let alone where I live. Just a suggestion..or maybe I'm blind ;D Ross Herbert 9495

Hi Ross, thanks very much for

Hi Ross, thanks very much for your kind feedback and your suggestions. Yes I totally hear you and, to be honest, I should do a better job of explaining just why we zoom out like that and not show so much detail landwise sometimes. The reason being is that NZ is so small when you zoom in you lose the full understanding of what is coming in.

I purposely zoomed out the maps today because the system is SO big it's just smothering NZ, so upclose you'll just see your area with either a giant blob of rain over it or a few isobars, hard to work out if the rain is coming or going or getting lighter/more intense etc. However I need to perhaps make a better effort to point out where the parts of NZ are. Honestly I feel like I'm speaking a hundred miles a minute and sometimes it still takes 5 minutes to get it all out and I always regret not covering certain things afterwards - every single day!! So basically yes, will try to highlight the coastline more, but also understand with these big storms the wider the picture the more accurate the general forecast will be.

Thanks again
Philip Duncan

Thanks

Hi thanks for that explanation. I also agree with the other visitor - I really couldn't figure out where NZ was, under all that cloud mass ! Doing a great job.

Videos

Good evening Philip, thanks for the reply and explanation. Just keep on doing what you are doing mate. As far as I am concerned your information is what matters. I do like your suggestion about some areas being pointed out though as with a reference to the main areas ( he points to the map ) will let us reference our own tiny bits of the big picture. Once again, great job and absolutely no criticism intended Regards Ross

Oh I totally understand -

Oh I totally understand - honestly we love people telling us how to improve, what they don't like, what they love etc. The entire WeatherWatch brand has been shaped out of demand by the public, not us insisting on certain things.

With weather videos I far prefer to do a big picture story of what is going on, as then you can relate/add that to your local forecast and make sense of it more. 

Appreciate the feedback, keep it coming and thank you very much for your support :)

Excellent. Can you fix those

Excellent. Can you fix those back to front wind barbs on some of your maps? They look odd (clearly confused with northern hem depictions). Barbs should point to lowest pressure.

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your comment. This is from the head of MetOcean who supply the maps. "Our wind barbs are correct however they differ from others in that the feathers protrude from the port-side, whereas others are starboard-side".

Correct for the northern

Correct for the northern hemisphere. I am surprised that is all they said. Compare to MetService. Cheers.

"NOW! Temperature today???

Are you kidding me? It's b... Freezing, certainly not 28.1. Probably not even half that, this morning's frost is still not all gone, and I have just been removing ice from inside windows! "NOW" Temperature currently showing as 28.1 c. At 12.10pm! It's currently 12.25pm - that certainly hasn't happened,! 28.1°c Observed at 12:10pm from: Masterton, Masterton (IWGNMAST2) Report bad data Rain (today)0mm WindE 1km/h Humidity35% Pressure1013hPa Current conditions by Weather Underground

Hi there,Your taxes fund live

Hi there,
Your taxes fund live observations from MetService and NIWA - but they won't share this public data with the private sector due to commercial greed (The Government is now officially reviewing this). The network we display is from hard working New Zealanders who are sharing their live observations.

You'll find in the "NOW" box there is a Report Bad Data button, please report this bad data as it helps us fix these sorts of problems. We may ask Wunderground to manually remove these stations if they don't autofix in the coming months. The more people that report faults the sooner we can clean the data up. That one in your area has been a problem for a while so we may seek to remove it and replace with something, um, much more accurate than 28 in mid winter! Most are reliable, but the odd one like this one is clearly wrong.
Thanks a lot
WW

You guys seem to be way more

You guys seem to be way more accurate than the metservice, why is that? Also am navigating around your website and wondering if you do ski area forecasts. Haven't found it but a high chance it could be user error. Thanks Vince

I've also noticed

I've also noticed weatherwatch has been far more accurate than metservice for sometime now

Hi VinceThanks for your email

Hi Vince
Thanks for your email and yoru support of our accuracy, it's much appreciated! We don't have ski forecasts yet but we have plans for the 2018 season ...so watch this space :)

Cheers
Phil.

 

Butterflies flying

Surprised to see butterflies flying this afternoon, feeding! Enjoying sunshine and warmth in New Lynn. Blue skies NW and dark skies SE

Today

Hi Phil Boy that NW airstream has sure made for a pleasant day in the Tron. Currently 17c but feels like 19 really. I know it is short lived but it sure makes a great change from the junk we have had for weeks. Cheers Dave

Hi DaveYeah the next day or

Hi Dave
Yeah the next day or two certainly look spring-like thanks to the NW flow. It changes back to 'wintry' by Friday though! So make the most of it :)

Thanks for the local update

Dunedin temperature

I'm curious about where you take your Dunedin temperature. On your website I see it says: "Patearoa (IOTAGOPA4)" under the "Now" temp. Patearoa is about a two-hour drive from Dunedin so wondering if that's right? It could explain why you have a temperature 1.2 for Dunedin right now, while the Otago Uni weather station has 8.5 and MetService has 8. On your app it has 2.8 deg but says that one's taken in Mosgiel, which again is quite different from Dunedin (cooler in winter and warmer in summer). I'd rather use your site/app than any others, but only if it's giving me Dunedin's temp rather than Patearoa's or Mosgiel's! Keen to hear your thoughts.

Hi there - we have just

Hi there - we have just recently logged this serious issue with Wunderground. Most other centres are accurate but for some reason Dunedin's current reading is incorrect. We're fixing a few other small bugs with boundaries in other regions but the data pulled from Patearoa is definitely incorrect and we're working hard and quickly with Wunderground to immediately get this sorted. The fault also occurs on the WU website itself too, so that's helpful as it means their techs can see it and work to address it. We don't have an ETA on when this will be resolved but we hope fairly soon now that we've spoken to WU about it.

The app will find your nearest reading and in time we're working to add "change this station" so you can manually choose the one you feel is most accurate for you (as you know Dunedin has a real variety of weather within the city and airport - temperatures can range by several degrees at the same time - or like last week some had snow while others had sun!

Thanks for the feedback and information, we'll pass this on to WU as well. Apologies for the fault - and thanks for sticking with us :)

Awesome. Thanks and keep up

Awesome. Thanks and keep up the great work.

A little SE breeze

Last evening around 9:30 I watched the neighbours chimney spouting lots of smoke. The smoke was being spread out as it left the chimney That was SE breeze. Then a switch to WSW breeze saw it twist and dance as it wove its way thru bushes and cover the roof next door as it slowly rose.

Ahh the dynamics of weather,

Snow in invercargill

Im a student in S.I.T invercargill, since I arrived here, ive been dying to see snow. When does snow fall down on this area?

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 :)

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.

WW

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.
