NEW forecast features added to!

We’ve added more detail to our forecasts across every region in NZ plus a few new services are now included in your daily forecast.

What is new?

  1. More detailed forecasts in every part of New Zealand!
    We’re expanding our text forecasts to include more detail in places that previously had much shorter forecasts. We’ll be adding more detail in the months ahead too and will continue to tweak any icons or details which don’t seem as accurate as they could be.
  2. Cloud Cover now added to the HOURLY data – for 10 days out!
  3. New exclusive FOG Forecast alerts!
    Direct from NZ’s only Fog Forecaster at When fog is more likely an alert bar will appear for the day ahead. (Of course for 10 days of hourly fog data you can get that at
  4. Improved Wind Directions in the HOURLY data
    Clearer wind direction arrows to make glancing at the forecast more simplistic.

We’re making improvements all the time behind the scenes to and have many more improvements coming in 2021.


We have plans to upgrade the free WeatherWatch App in 2021. Some of the above improvements will appear in the App automatically but we have plans to make greater improvements later in 2021. Covid-19 has slowed down some of our plans but we’re very excited about the new services we have planned for 2021.

In the meantime – We have built a RuralWeather App (which is yet to be launched) and is now in testing. We’re almost there, just ironing out the bugs so you don’t have to tell us about them! We aim to launch early in 2021 and will have more news on this in the near future.

Thanks for your support – thanks for fuelling our energy to always do better. Here’s to 2021 as well 🙂
