Hail in New Lynn

Very small bits of hail bounced off the car as I drove along Margan Avenue just after 1 pm. Heavy rain fell in New Lynn North at the same time. Sunshine is warm and washing has dried!

Auckland Hail

Have just had two brief hail showers in west Auckland between 1:00 and 1:40 this afternoon. Just wondering if you guys think there could be more within this cold snap in the next few days? I note tomorrows high is 10 degrees, last time that was the high in Auckland (August 2011 if i recall correctly) it briefly snowed. Even though I think I'm dreaming thinking that could be possible. Keep up your good work guys :)

Thanks for this update! We

Thanks for this update! We actually have been questioning all day if we should include it in the Auckland forecast but so far it's been fairly dry - however now including it as the coldest/most energised portion of this event is now coming into Auckland - and not easing until Friday, so more hail quite likely - amongst the pleasant sunny spells!!

- WW :)

Is there much of a chance of

Is there much of a chance of heavy rain between 2pm - 4pm in Lower Hutt?

Hi there - currently there

Hi there - currently there are some heavy downpours moving into the Wellington area, they are likely to be off and on throughout the next two hours.

how come

how come canterbury gets snow and port hills get alot of snow, and christchurch always get sleet? thanks

Christchurch is near sea

Christchurch is near sea level and it's always going to require very very cold air for snow to settle in Chch, if it's just not cold enough then it won't manage to settle in the city. :)

WW

Clapping hands...

Just wanted to let you know that this APP is awesome!!!

Thanks heaps! :) Phil and

Not looking very likely.

WW

will it be settled snow tomorrow in christchurch like 2011 or is it like a on a off snow thing? regards

On and off if anything,

On and off if anything, outside chance of settling although generally it's not looking as likely.

WW

will christchurch

will christchurch get snow to sea level tomorrow ?

A chance of flurries at times

A chance of flurries at times but it's borderline, the risk gets higher when you get above 100m.

Hi, I am traveling from

Hi, I am traveling from Christchurch to Tekapo on friday morning and I was wondering what the conditions will be like? Thanks!

Hi there - it should be

Hi there - it should be becoming dry on Friday (although may be a lingering shower). More importantly there may be ice or black ice too, with a high coming in to calm things down and bring in big frosts, especially through the interior.
Safe travels!
- WW

Will it be white stufff

will it be fully snowing here in christchurch for overnight because we are so near the port hills and we dont get that here please reply !

Full details in our news

Full details in our news section about the risk for Chch. Look at our detailed 10 day forecast for the city, plus the news story which details all the towns at some risk. For now we don't think Christchurch has a very high chance of snow - but the Port Hills do.

Cheers

WW

Its coming down right now as i speak

well around 9 here in christchurch we are getting alot of snow fluries but do you think this will continue overnight and tomorrow :) ?

Hi there, there's a very fine

Hi there, there's a very fine line between snow and rain in Christchurch right now (and overnight) - the main band is easing though so snow/rain will ease back to showers/snow showers before midnight/overnight. With it being borderline it's very hard to work out if you'll get more snow, or more rain - it's a very fine line of just 100metres (think of that short distance down a street - except it's above you!).

patearoa is not dunedin

Hi Folks, Why am I seeing the "now" temperature for patearoa, when I'm on the Dunedin page? What's the "now" temperature for Dunedin? Many thanks

Hi there - yes we're aware of

Hi there - yes we're aware of this and thanks for letting us know. We're going to be requesting that Wunderground (WU) make changes to this as soon as they can once we've completed some other work. Our Dunedin forecasts (that we write) are most definitely based/focused on Dunedin but the 'now' data from Wunderground is coming from an incorrect location so will be fixed. The reason this hasn't been sorted yet is because we're going through all the WU data and making a list of improvements. There are a few other places with odd boundaries/locations - their data is generally really good but clearly not if it's giving you an incorrect location! Thanks for letting us know - we hope to have these issues fixed by spring but may escalate the Dunedin issue due to it being a main centre.

Cheers

WW

Thanks Weather Watch!

Thanks Weather Watch!

Great to get an idea of how bad the weather is going to be.

Fog

Hi, any fog for whangarei or auckand on Friday?

Hi thereAt this stage fog

Hi there
At this stage fog isn't expected due to windier weather then, however with the centre of a low tracking nearby around Friday (and the centre is calm and can produce fog) then it would pay to keep an eye on the forecast. For now it looks fog-free though.

Snow in Dunedin

Travelling form Auckland to Dunedin for National Basketball Championships next week. What is the likelihood of seeing snow? How many layers of clothing would we need, do you think we should buy gloves?

You should see snow if you're

You should see snow if you're driving the entire way, especially around Central Plateau and the South Island ranges (depending on the weather at the time). Next week starts off far more settled - but Dunedin is pretty cold. Keep an eye on our 10 day Dunedin forecasts, it has hourly temperatures for every day too so you can work out how cold it will be and what clothes you'll need...but prepare for highs in the single digits!

Cheers

NZH at it again. Today's

NZH at it again. Today's headline screams "Four days of hell: worst storm of year bears down on New Zealand" and states in the article that "rain, snow and gales set to batter much of New Zealand". On Sunday you said it wasn't a storm and proceeded to explain in very calm and clear terms exactly what you were expecting. Again you have shown a level of professionalism that is sadly lacking in the NZH these days. Well done.

Thanks very much. New

Thanks very much. New Zealand's largest tablod now jumps for the biggest headlines with every weather event and they work almost exclusively now with MetService to do this. In fact not only do MetService not correct them publicly ever (as they are a client) but MetService provides links to click back to these over the top tabloid stories via MetService.com. So therefore there isn't much we can do about it, other than provide a clear and calm second opinion which is becoming increasibly trusted as the others go for clickbait.

Thanks for your kind and thoughtful message,
Cheers
WW

shame really, shabby little

shame really, shabby little tabloids, the Heralds partner is crime, the Otago Daily Tabloid was known (presume they still do as their clickbait sometimes shows up on Metservice) for sensationalism in the same way, and they wonder tabloid readership is plummeting If nothing else Metservice is driving a few extra people your way :) Hopefully your reports for Otago (Dunedin/ Queenstown) might get a little more accurate when resource allows

Im leaving for a holiday to

Im leaving for a holiday to Hanmer springs on friday morning from christchurch, what do you expect the roads to be like? Will there be snow?

Hi there Hard to say right

Hi there

Hard to say right now what will be happening then. Current indications are it may be quite wet rather then snow as such although that's not to say snow might not fall, it just might be on Wed / Thu then some heavy rain moves in on Friday.

Details may have to be ironed out closer to the time, when you leave check out this site here for road conditions: https://www.aa.co.nz/travel/roadwatch/

Cheers
WW

Hi there, I was wondering

Hi there, I was wondering what the roads will be like as going on holiday from Dunedin to otematata on Wednesday morning. Thanks

Hi there, at this stage

Hi there, at this stage there's a fairly high chance of heavy snow throughout Otago on Tuesday and/or Wednesday with most highways getting snow somewhere along the route. Very hard to know if that particular route will be impacted. You'll need to keep up to date with NZTA at the time of travelling. Sorry we can't be more specific than that. We'll have more details on Monday about the set up this coming week.
Cheers

Frost

Do your temps show air temp, ie -5 , air temp or frost reading, thanks.

Most of the "Now" temps will

Most of the "Now" temps will just be air temp readings. It's all hooked off the wunderground network which is generally weather enthusiasts around the country.

Frost.

Thank you.

There's lots of them but I gather they aren't regulated or standardized?
