Santa Tracker 2021!

Using the very latest Radar Navigation System WeatherWatch can get hold of, we were able to track Santa’s progress on Christmas Eve!

After 11pm we, by law, had to switch off Santa’s tracking across NZ as he began his deliveries!

Below is the final image from 11pm on Christmas Eve.

From everyone at, have a wonderful Christmas Day. 🙂

Santa cannot be found on the radar. He is still busy at the North Pole! Check back on Christmas Eve from 1pm – we expect Santa to begin to show up sometime around then!

Win a Santa Sack full of presents!

Thanks to everyone who entered to win a sack full of presents from some of Santa’s friends. Entries are now closed, and a winner will be announced soon!

WeatherWatch is proud to support Meat The Need, a kiwi charity that connects generous farmers who have meat to donate, to the City Missions and food banks that can distribute it to those in need. Christmas is a time of giving, and even non-farmers can get involved. Find out more by clicking here

Hey Santa, my little niece and my slightly larger son are here with us in Northland, they’ve both been super good so I hope you can come by and leave them a wee pressie. We’ll be leaving you a mince pie and something yummy to drink. Thanks and all the best x

Hi Santa,

Phillip & Jenny here, looks like you’re on track to get New Zealand, watch out for The Covid, he’s here and wants to spoil Christmas. We have been very good this year, we have left you some milk and foodies by the tree and there is some fresh hay by the chimme for the raindeer.
Safe travels
Phillip & Jenny
