Will this finally be the year

Will this finally be the year snow settles on the ground in Christchurch:'(. And if a snowstorm the magnitude of the 2011 snow what would the snow level be?

Hi there

Sorry have no idea, no one could really tell you that one. Will just have to wait till winter and see if it happens! :)

Kapitit Coast

Just wondering if you could do a separate forecast for Kapiti, we are often very different to Wellington and Palmerston North

Hi there Having ranges in the

Hi there

Having ranges in the way there would certainly make a difference, unfortunately we are limited by the funding we currently have. You can still use our seach function on the home page, type in Paekakariki then you get this:

Not perfect just yet but focus mainly on the percentage of rain as to the chances of whether it may rain or not on an particular day. Hope that helps for now.

How wet is Sunday looking?

Is today looking to be mostly a dry windy day, or is it a wet one too? Good to know how to plan for outdoor party plans. Horizontal rain could change everything. Cheers!

Hi there - whereabouts are

Hi there - whereabouts are you!? If Auckland - today is mainly dry (just a few showers about) but the winds are going to gradually pick up from the west. Like a warm day in spring!

What a night for Auckland

We're you expecting it to be so bad? I don't think Metservice did (unless I missed a weather warning).

Hi there. Yes it was quite

Hi there. Yes it was quite the night in Auckland with gusts over 100km/h and sustained gales of 75km/h! You are correct, MetService issued no warning, or watch. Our forecast across Saturday mentioned gales developing - and our evening forecast said "Stormy with gale force NE winds". We first warned the media of this event on Weds but most were focused on the 'weather bomb'. We spent most of last night and the early hours of this morning providing live/real time updates on Twitter and Facebook (we hope to bring this service into our website and app in the future too). However, we'll be honest and tell you we were caught a little off guard by the early arrival of the system. We were expecting it just after midnight but it arrived about 5 or 6 hours earlier (and therefore cleared several hours earlier today too).

Quieter weather coming this week in Auckland but might be a bit windy across Sunday PM.
Cheers

Rain fall - Takapuna, Auckland

Hi, any idea of wether we are looking at light or heavy showers for sunday morning from around 6am till midday, particularly in Takapuna.. thanks Avi

Hi Avi - yes we are expecting

Hi Avi - yes we are expecting a mix of drizzly falls and isolated heavier falls in the early morning - some models do show it clearing in the early to mid morning so it may clear earlier than forecast.

Cheers

WW

wow, wind gusts

New Lynn has NE gusts competing with SW, stormy wind gusts. Poor butterflies hatch and use energy fighting the wind. Rubbish bins flying about Batten down the hatches & secure any outdoor furniture, gazebos & trampolines. Be sure to peg washing onto line securely, and forget hair styles today!

interactive map

Thats all very well but the interactive maps take time and effort to understand and comprehend.We just want to know the here, now and the next day without effort!

That's what our 10 day

Sun in Auckland

Hi Guys - do you see any sunshine for AKL this weekend? I'm holding out even for a few hours in an afternoon...

Hi there - a few sunny spells

Hi there - a few sunny spells today, some tomorrow too - but best chances for sun will be across next week and the long weekend!

Auckland Northshore Rain

Hi Great Site and app always one of the more accurate ones Question please What time do you think the showers / Rain will arrive Saturday night 21st in Aucklands North Shore region ?

Hi there - thanks so much for

Hi there - thanks so much for the positive feedback, much appreciated! At this stage the rain looks to arrive after midnight on Saturday morning meaning Sunday AM looks to be the main wet period this weekend in Auckland/North Shore.

Kind regards

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 :)

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?

Overnight Wednesday and Thursday morning may see gale Nor'West winds for Chch.

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! :)

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.
