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

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

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

Good luck!

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

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,

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

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

Rain next Friday

Hello :) See you have forecast rain for next Friday in Akld - any chance it could come early and be fine do you think? have o'seas rellies arriving and wanted to BBQ!

Still too far out to lock in

Still too far out to lock in sorry - there's a bit of a fight between the tropics and a high over NZ later next week. Keep an eye on that forecast as it may dry out (or not!). Should have a much firmer idea by this weekend. At this stage the modelling suggests the sub-tropics and a Tasman Sea low will push in, but other updates this week have also shown the high keeping things dry. Probably be a few more updates back and forth before it locks in something - again should be this weekend things will look more certain. Good luck!

Cheers!

Impressive huge cumulus NW , Just been watching it hose down in Henderson, the black skies and cumulus are beautiful! ! A big pat on the back for forecast accuracy!

Thanks - today has been a tough day accurately monitoring where the showers most likely will form!

Will their be any significant

Will their be any significant rain in march for Christchurch #summer ends but more to come!

Hi there, at this stage we

Hi there, at this stage we think the first half of March will be drier than usual. There could be some rain around March 7th (but may not be much).  In the second half of March there is a chance more sub-tropical weather could send a rainmaker your way. In a week we'll be in a better position to comment on Canterbury with more accuracy for any potential rain mid-month. Keep an eye on our news stories as we'll be focusng on Canterbury more and more now that prolonged dry weather has returned - and we'll be looking for the rain!

Cheers

Gday WW, are the long range forecasts showing a change in weather patterns after the start of March? Central Canterbury getting bloody dry again and looking for some moisture relief.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the important question and already sorry for our reply...as little to no significant rain in the next two weeks at this stage. Perhaps some drizzle or showers on Sunday...but really it does look mostly dry next couple of weekes. Next week we'll take a more detailed outlook at Canterbury's set up for March. We'll try to find the positives!

Cheers

Rain

A few spits fell as I watered the garden tonight in New Lynn. Only noticed as arms were bare. Urgent watering done!

Wow!

Hello guys - awesome work done with the hourly forecast. Keep up the excellent work.

detailed weather info

nice to have tye detail, but your detailed data is hard work cognitively - I recommend adding graphical overlay to ease scanning

new graph

Hi Chaps - LOVE the new temp mapping!! nice work!

Humidity

Hi my fav weather guru's! Has the horrid humidity now left Auckland - will we now be able to sleep at night???

Hi there - looks like

Hi there - looks like humidity levels will be fairly high for the next while in Auckland. ENE and NE wind flows can be exceptionally humid in summer, but if it tilts more SE then that is usually drier and less humid (but can be hotter) in summer. We're in a new weather pattern now - one that sees higher humidity levels for Auckland than they have bene for the past couple months.

Cheers - and good luck sleeping!

Sunshine in Auckland

Would be interested to see any data on sunlight hours in auckland this "summer". I'm struggling to think of a worse one in recent memory- maybe 10 days of proper clear sunny days in the entire time, it's just been endless mediocrity and gloom. Even Feb is terrible - 10 days in a row of murk and cloud.... was the last one like this 2011?
