fog

hi, fly from whangarei to Auckland on 14 july at 7am. what do you think about fog?

Hi there, yes there are some

Hi there, yes there are some fog risks on Friday at 7am but hopefully a developing breeze means any fog will be short lived. Most of the fog should be south of Auckland though, but can't rule out some affecting flights in Auckland or Whangarei but major problems not expected at this point - but definitely worth monitoring.

Cheers

Honestly don't know much at this stage, it's too far out. Keep an eye on the site here though as Phil with his video's will give regular outlooks as that time frame comes into view a bit more.

Abel Tasman coast track

Hey there, walking the Abel Tasman coast track Marahau through to Wainui starting Sunday 2nd July finish up on Thursday 6th July .. looks like a bit of rain going to accompany us or could we maybe get lucky ? Cheers

G'day there Sunday looks a

G'day there

Sunday looks a little debatable, could be a mix of sun and cloud but also the risk of a shower or two. Monday with an easing southwest flow looks a bit easier to decipher, mainly sunny and dry. Tuesday looks good too for the most part however cloud increases from late afternoon then watch for rain to move in overnight. Wednesday sees early rain ease to occasional showers and gusty northwesterly winds, finally on Thursday conditions may improve with the flow tending more southwest, sunny areas and some cloud.

Hope your trip goes well!

Cheers

Routeburn Track Late August

Hi, I'm not sure how far in advance you can forecast but I'm thinking about doing the Routeburn Track starting on August 20th. My biggest concern is avalanches and I'll go somewhere else (Heaphy Track) if Routeburn looks dangerous. Can you provide any forecasts on snow falls between now and Aug 20th? Thx!

Hi there No sorry can't give

Hi there

No sorry can't give any information that far out, we mainly deal in the next 5 to 10 day time-frame bracket :D

Hope your tramp goes well when it comes around :)

No worries - I'll ping you

No worries - I'll ping you close to the date and thanks so much for such an awesome service.

What are the odds of sea level snow in Christchurch this year?

Hi there, I was just wondering, do you guys think we will see sea level snow in Christchurch this year? I know forecasting snow this far out is nigh on impossible, but I was curious to hear what your gut instinct on this is. Been quite a while since we last had sea level snow settling here in Christchurch. Thanks!

G'day there No gut instinct

G'day there

No gut instinct on snow possibilities to sea level unfortunately in Chch, and your right yes it's pretty much impossible for me to tell. Sorry no good news for you there :(

Fog 29th June Napier to Auckland

Hi is there any chance of fog early in the morning in either Napier or Auckland that could affect flights on Thursday 29th June? Thanks

Hi there, fog is a bit hard

Hi there, fog is a bit hard to forecast too far in advance but the conditions on Thursday have some chance for fog in the North Island but the chances of it being heavy at the airports is only about 25% at this stage. Some chances of a breeze in both Auckland and Napier. It can sometimes form very quickly out of clear sky but a slight breeze is always going to help keep it away. We don't always forecast fog (as it takes a lot of extra time to do, which we don't always have the resources for) but if the chances are moderate to high we try to mention it where we can. At this stage we'd say it's a low chance, keeping in mind the disclaimers we just mentioned!  

Cheers

Screen dump is attached, Cheers Bruce, PS, Can't attach Screen dump, but I have saved as a document, and can send to you if wish, regards

Hi Bruce, wow that's

Hi Bruce, wow that's incredible! Send through to news @ weatherwatch.co.nz so we can take a look and try to add it to the comment.

Thanks very much for the local update, getting reports like this is so helpful not to mention really interesting!

Fog

Hi there, is there any chance of large amount of fog during the morning of tomorrow or the morning of the 28th? (Auckland central)

Hi there, at this stage we're

Hi there, at this stage we're not expecting fog in the Auckland area (at least not widespread) due to the light southerly flow. Check back with our forecasts in case this changes, but for now we don't quite have the right conditions for large foggy areas in Auckland. 

Cheers

past weather forecast

Hello, Please could you tell me what the weather was like in Christchurch city around 5pm on 4th June. My son was involved in an accident and said the conditions were foggy but the other person said thats not true the weather was fine. Please can you help. Thank you Denise

Hi Denise Best I can do is

Hi Denise

Best I can do is point you to this page:

https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/NZCH/2017/6/4/DailyHistory....

These are weather observations from Christchurch airport, 5pm says the temperature was 5.0 degrees celsius with light rain, visibility was good though apparently, no fog.

For something more concrete I would contact either Metservice or NIWA for something quite specific.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

frosts

what are the chances of a frost in tauranga tomorrow morning

Hi there Not that great,

Hi there

Not that great, it'll get a bit cool but frosts are not looking very likely. It may get down to 4 or 5 degrees overnight.

Cheers

Fog tomorrow

Hi there, is there any chance of severe fog in Auckland tomorrow potentially impacting flights tomorrow morning?

No chance, too mcuh of a

Very little chance, too much of a breeze. Low cloud possible though but that usually doesn't stop flights in Auckland.

The weather forecast for Blue Spring in Putaruru

Hi, can you please give me an update for the weather forecast tomorrow for Blue Spring in Putaruru, we will have a hiking in the area tomorrow. Thanks Rob from Auckland

Hi there - here's our

Hi there - here's our Putaruru forecast (and includes hourly forecasts with % of rain). Generally a 60% chance of showers, which is moderate risk. So yes a few showers possible but nothing too major at this point. Winds from the west to south west.

Wanganui Riverside Market

Hi. First time on this site. I juggle weather forecasts every saturday trying to work out whats happening in Wanganui and which report is right as they all vary and mostly wrong. I drive from New Plymouth so two hours away is hard to judge. Tomorrow forecast in Wanganui. Is it worth me going. Thanks for your advice in advance. Cheers

Hi there, thanks for visiting

Hi there, thanks for visiting our site - we hope you'll find us helpful for your area(s). 

We have hourly forecasts here on our website for Wanganui (http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/weather-forecasts/wanganui) and if you check the % of rain that is usually quite an accurate guide. 

Cheers

WW

EDIT: Sat Morning (6:40am) - Latest forecast not looking so bad for today in Wanganui but still showers coming in.  

Huia Saturday night

HI there, I'm quite nervous about an outdoor (under tarp) event for a NE facing location on Saturday night (from 5pm) in Huia. The hills are behind us so might offer some protection from those strong SW winds.. but as time progresses your local Huia forecast is giving a higher and higher chance of rain.. Thoughts?

Hi there Saturday night

Hi there

Saturday night doesn't look all that wet from what I'm seeing but the odd shower may be about for sure, it does look a bit windy though. Southwesterlies in the 30 to 40 km/h zone, gusting up to 50 km/h at times, but yes if you have hills behind you perhaps this might be a bit less. Winds should ease a little as the evening progresses.

Hope your event goes well!

WW

Thank you!!

Thank you!!

I see the NZ Herald has gone

I see the NZ Herald has gone off the deep end again with the headline "Days of rain, gales and snow poised to slam New Zealand". Seems very dramatic given neither you or MS seem to be predicting days of such severe weather. Their standard of weather reporting has really dropped away and you are well rid of them and I put much more faith in your level headed approach.

Hi there, thank you. We

Hi there, thank you. We explicitly told the NZ Herald in an interview on Sunday that this would not bring days of severe weather. However the tabloid approach seems to be their new way. Thanks for the supportive feedback - we tell anyone who sees a 'big' or alarming weather story in any of the more mainstream news outlets to simply double check with WeatherWatch as 9 times out of 10 we usually have a second opinion that is a little calmer or at least clearer.

Kind regards
Philip Duncan

Argh, it's all about the clicks

Getting people clicking onto tabloid stories is easy, its all about the numbers. But creating a long term fan base is the ultimate goal. And these tabloid stories irritate me to no end (one lost fan). I wonder if the weather can sue for defamation? If there is no evidence of large storms and they are bleating it...doesn't sound fair to me. Giving weather a bad name!

If you believe the NZH then

If you believe the NZH then Noah better start getting the Ark ready.

More of those clicks

NZH this morning: "vast swathes of New Zealand are set to be drenched as a complex low conjures up days of rain, gales and even snow". Sounds a bit overdramatic but will get the clicks.

Saturday - Rugby

Hey team How's the forecast looking for this Saturday in Auckland? Any chance of a fast track for Saturday night at Eden Park?

At this stage it looks as

At this stage it looks as though the centre of the low is tracking east by Saturday night - that should bring in a rather windy and cold (and showery) sou'wester for Auckland and Eden Park. We won't be able to lock in Saturday's forecast possibly until as late as Friday though, due to the unstable nature of this big low. Hopefully the worst will be gone by then though! :)

Cheers

Saturday in Dunedin

I can't really answer a question like that accurately but statistically I would say you have a very low to no chance of having any snow this winter.

Hope that helps! :D

Whangamata Rainfall - year to date

Have you guys got any data on how much rainfall has fallen in Whangamata for the calendar year to date and what the average for the year to date would be? Cal

Hi there Re rainfall, no

Hi there

Re rainfall, no sorry. Unfortunately that information will be tied up with NIWA or you could use Metservice.

Hope your search for information is fruitful! Best to get in touch with one of the above groups :)

WW

Hi there. Just a heads up

Hi there. Just a heads up your Chateau Tongariro/Whakapapa Village forecasts temps are constantly 2-3 degrees higher than what occurs. I guess it doesnt take into account the elevation the township is it (1200m)

Hey, thanks so much for the

Hey, thanks so much for the update. The data should be understanding the elevation as all WU data takes into consideration the geography and history. In saying that, if you think the forecast temperatures are really missing the mark we can definitely pass that on to WU to look into it. The issue we have in New Zealand (unlike Australia, Canada, USA, UK etc) is that our Government forecaster - in this case MetService - will not release data the taxpayers fully fund and own which then makes it so much trickier for everyone to make more accurate forecasts (as this data helps to check and verify).  In saying that, the data we use has seveal dozen super computers crunching numbers so generally they are more accurate than NIWA (with one super computer) and MetService (with no super computer). An inaccurate trend of warmer than usual in the forecasts isn't normal though - so we will look into that for you.

Cheers and thank you for telling us!
