Six centre forecasts

WeatherWatch will shortly be launching our own forecasts for numerous centres up and down the country and today we thought we’d take a look at our biggest cities.

Auckland:  Showers increasing later, cold south west change. High:14-16

Hamilton:  Showers off and on with a cold sou’ west change. High: 12 or 13

Tauranga:  Showers increasing this afternoon, then clearing tonight. Cold sou’ westers later High: 14 or 15

Wellington: Some showers with a chilly sou’ west change, easing tonight. High: 12-14

Christchurch:  Few showers developing with a southerly change, skies clearing later. High: 9-11

Dunedin:  Wintry showers slowly drying up, sunny spells but windy and cold sou’ westers. High: 8 or 9

Much of the country will feel the effects today at some point of the cold southerly but these conditions are expected to be relatively brief with milder temperatures likely over the next 48-72 hours.

Hi guys,

I think it might be time to enter new Plymouth and Sth Taranaki into the weather forecasts, we are a main centre but are forever being left out and metservice is useless at forecasts! Perhaps seperate forecasts for each of the main towns here as we all get different weather depending on the direction of the wind…The Mountain effect I call it. Could be pouring down in New Plymouth and hot and sunny in Stratford for example. It would be nice to know the weather around here for a change before it happens.

I’m not that fussed on the wind in Wellington but how many showers we will get 🙂

Wellington SW change? It will go through there but usually on a wind change over from the NW to the SE in a true W or SW flow.
Its a little like Auckland having SE (very rare be SSW usually) when its a southerly flow across the N.I.
