Hey Zelda We are currently in

Hey Zelda

We are currently in the process of getting the editors and graphics people involved. Today was our second day in the new studio getting ready and tomorrow we will do some recording for the first time (but not airing yet). Not sure of an exact date but if tomorrow goes well it may be as soon as next week.  Over the rest of this year we'll be developing additional video forecast content too. Exciting times ahead now that we're making our own content.

Hope you're enjoying the early evening sunny spells that have finally developed :)
Cheers

Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update!

New Plymouth weekend

Hi there, we're going to visit New Plymouth this weekend. The forecasts don't look too good. Any chance they will improve by then? Thanks!

Hi there - no sorry, we have

Hi there - no sorry, we have a very large low in the Tasman Sea moving in this weekend, rain is very likely across the entire North Island, including Taranaki.  Sorry!

Cheers

WW

This weekend is wet, next weekend looks dry for most of NZ.

Sunday

Hi There, How is Sunday looking in Auckland for outdoor activity?

At this stage heavy downpours

At this stage heavy downpours - possibly lingering. Humid northerlies too. Possibly not the best day but keep an eye on the forecasts, if this system speeds up a bit then sunnier weather may move into Auckland by Sunday - but not at this stage.

All the best with your plans!
Philip D

sunday

Is my sense right that the outlook for Sunday may be improving? Thanks for your great service.

The real problem with Sunday

The real problem with Sunday is that yes there are some areas of sunny, warm, dry weather - but - around that there are very big downpours, possibly slow moving with thunderstorms. The Auckland *region* is expected to be affected by them, but the scattered nature of these rain bands coming in means this far out (and even on the day sometimes) it's very hard to work out who will be affected and when exactly. Technology is only so good. The best thinking is that the risk of a downpour is fairly high but there's also a moderate chance of big dry spells in some parts of the upper North Island. How's that for a politicians answer!

Cheers :)

WW

Weather for Womad

Hi. I see that Friday 17 March in New Plymouth is looking good. Is the high likely to continue over the whole weekend for the Womad Festival. Hope so!!

Hi there - it's too far out

Hi there - it's too far out to lock in just yet but the current models show a high moving away from NZ slowly and encouraging a northerly flow. This can make for warmer than usual weather - but also increases the risk of a downpour. Should have a better idea by this weekend about rain chances. Keep an eye on our 10 day NP forecast and our rain maps too :)

Cheers - and good luck!

CHCH sat

Hi I'm getting married in CHCH Saturday arvo- will the rain ease ag all or is it going to be steady most of the day?

It's too early to lock in yet

It's too early to lock in yet (as Chch is borderline) but the current data as of the time of this reply indicates dry spells increasing into the afternoon....this may not remain the forecast so keep an eye on our Chch detailed forecast and our rain maps.  Ask us again later in the week if you need more help! Cheers - and congrats! :)

Weather Underground forecast

Again the weather forecast was right by them. It was a swift change of rain direction from NE to SSE

Last of the Summer Holidays

Hi There Many thanks for your consistent responses and helpful directive manner. As we haven't managed to have a summer holiday just wondering if this theme of overcast, wind and rain is likely to continue for the rest of March? Could be the difference between deciding on Ohope or a week overseas. FYI - Micro climate of Papakura has had no rain at this stage but have been informed by someone in St Lukes it is teaming down. Many Thanks

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your kind comments and the update on current weather. Yes we have a big downpour moving south down the city, then fairly dry again afterwards. Main rain is tonight/overnight.  As for the rest of March we do expect a big high to roll in next week, although latest forecasts for Ohope show some risk of showers lingering there for a couple days - otherwise improving. Good luck with your decision!

Cheers

WW

Saturday

Hiya! I'm getting married on Saturday in Auckland and while I know the thunderstorms will make wicked photos I'm not too sure about the wind - Is it going to be particularly blustery or will we get away with just the wet do you think? :)

Hi there we've just updated

Hi there we've just updated the Wunderground forecast and have currently removed Thunderstorms (we'll keep checking though, as with the humid conditions on Saturday if the sun breaks through then thunder more likely).  Winds won't be overly strong, but a northerly wind will blow with showers around and perhaps some late rain. It's hard to nail down so precisely under this set up - but generally Saturday looks humid, mainly cloudy, showery and not too windy.Some afternoon showers may be heavy (and if the sun comes out at thunder).

Cheers - and all the best for Saturday!! :)

WW

awesome thanks!!!!

awesome thanks!!!! :) Umbrellas Just in case then! :)

Will there be any heavy rain

Will there be any heavy rain in chch over the weekend as I saw some on rain map 12-14th

Keep an eye on our 10 days

Keep an eye on our 10 days forecasts. It's the current best thinking.

Cheers

Nelson

Will Nelson be having really bad weather over the weekend as i am heading up there for a brake

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage Nelson looks a bit unsettled with patchy rain or showers on Saturday with loads of dry spells too. Sunday, however, looks very wet as the centre of this big Tasman Sea low moves in and right over that area.  It would pay to keep an eye on the forecasts as when the middle of a low comes in it tends to be tricky to work out precisely the wind/rain/dry/calm areas but for now Nelson is lining up for heavy rain on Sunday.

Cheers
WW

Will There be severe weather

Will There be severe weather in chch in the next 10 days

Weekend in Auckland

Hi there, Heard about the grim weather in store this week. Do you think it wil lclear by the weekend? We have cricket this Sat & Sunday and just wondering if we can it expect it to clear in auckland or get worse at this stage.

Hi there - please check our

Hi there - please check our detailed forecasts above, both our details and the Wunderground hourly data - it's the current best thinking. Also, this story may be helpful to you: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/north-island-looks-set-a-sub-tropical-drenching

Hourly forecasts in app?

Hi WW, Thanks for the hourly forecasts - they are so useful. Is there any chance the data can be included in the app too? I check the app several times a day, and having those forecasts would make it even better! Cheers!

Hi there. Thanks for the

Hi there. Thanks for the thanks! Yes the hourly data is going to be included in our app. NIWA and MetService combined receive over 120 million dollars a year of tax funding and we get $0 so everything we add to our app or website is a cost we have to cover ourselves - while also funding our competitors with taxes! We're currently trying to sort the resources right now to bring that data into the app, as yes it's definitely useful and the app is increasingly how people get their weather data. We hope to have this addressed before winter so watch this space :)

Many thanks!
WW

Cheers! Looking forward to

Cheers! Looking forward to it!

Cirrus skies

A wonderful afternoon of cirrus dancing about the troposphere! Watched the crescent moon amongst the cirrus. Not humid with a wonderful breeze! Great Auckland weather!

Aucklan435

Hi guys, You say that you are getting your information from North Pukekohe on AUCKLAN435. Where is this? Big difference in topography between say Karaka and South Pukekohe. Example is when Metservice say rain is going to hit Auckland and then the Coromandel etc we know we aren't getting it. Can even watch it on the Bombay Hills and we don't get it. Just interested. Thanks

Hey there,We're soon

Hey there,
We're soon publishing a map of all weather observations, plus ways to report any errors in data. As you possibly already know MetService and NIWA refuse open data access on weather observations 100% owned by taxpayers. Thankfully the Government is officially investigating this. In the meantime we're accessing the network of community weather stations across the country (privately owned). The data is drawn to you from a station nearby. AUCKLAN435 is located where the star is, right in Pukekohe itself:

We hope to have a map of weather stations/current observations, up and running by winter.

Cheers,

Aucklan435

Many thanks. Appreciate the response.

any significant weather in

any significant weather in Christchurch over the coming days?

Sunday looks hot for some

Sunday looks hot for some parts of Canterbury, probably Christchurch - then on Tuesday you have a cold southerly with heavy downpours possible and a big temperature drop compared to Sunday.

Tauranga

Hi your rain map is showing no rain in Tauranga for Saturday 11 March but your Tauranga forecast for Saturday 11 March is saying showers then steady rain? Do you know yet what the forecast will be for Tauranga for Saturday 11 March please?

Hi there. Welcome to Autumn!

Hi there. Welcome to Autumn! This time of year the seas are at their warmest so we see sub-tropical flare ups - but also summer high pressure systems still pushing through. Right now we're seeing a lot of chaotic weather coming up north of NZ. March 11th has flip flopped a bit between rain from a sub-tropical air-stream or a high pushing in from the South Island/Tasman. Other models show a low on Saturday - but not Sunday. Long story short it's still too early to lock in, but should start to have a clearer idea this Monday. Either ask us again then or check our news stories as we'll be doing our best to make sense of all the best reliable data which is currenty a bit conflicted with regards to rain chances next 14 days.

Cheeers
WW

I looked on your rain map and

I looked on your rain map and saw a nasty looking storm on the 12th hitting nz could this impact Canterbury?

There's a good chance of wet

There's a good chance of wet weather this coming Tuesday onboard a cold southerly. We're still monitoring the 12th as the models and data aren't yet set on it, but there's moderate confidence of wet weather mid month for many regions - not yet ready to lock in Canterbury though.

Cheers

Disparity between max temp and the graphical hourly temp

Hi Max temp in Auckland is shown as 25 at the top of the page but the graph shows only 23. Why the difference?

Hi there - the Wunderground

Hi there - the Wunderground hourly data is simply their best thinking, collectively for the entire city. Our job in our detailed forecasts at WeatherWatch is to find the highest possible temperature for the city which sometimes is a little over or under what they generally forecast. In fact you'll sometimes find we overide what they do, as that's what makes our forecasts more accurate and more specific. Auckland is never one temperature - right now at 10:40am the city has current temps of 19 to 23 degrees.  We're actually contemplating giving a range of daily highs for Auckland, and Wellington in particular as one temperature doesn't accurately reflect the many microclimates.

Cheers

WW

Thank you

Thank you

Sorry, in Auckland

Monday - Thursday next week

Hi, We are wanting to pour concrete and need 2 days of no rain, should we put it off a week? Thanks

Hi there - at this stage it's

Hi there - at this stage it's looking dry today (low risk of a late shower, mostly north of the city). Saturday looks dry (very low risk of a light shower, about 10% chance) and Sunday looks dry too. Chance of rain increases from Weds next week so you may want to try and find a window between today and next Tuesday.  Our rains maps are currently offline but once back up again they'll be a helpful guide.  Good luck!
Cheers

WW

Thanks, when will the rain

Thanks, when will the rain radar be back up?
