VIDEO: RainWatch – NZ’s 7 Day rain forecast as low pressure lingers

NZ’s broken weather pattern continues for another week with low pressure in the area but high pressure driving in some colder air, especially for southerners and easterners (if “easterners” is even a thing!?). Heavy downpours are likely in the north of both main islands over the next week.

However, even with our 7 day rainfall map the instability caused by this low and nearby high means these totals may shift around a bit… and of course any shift in the forecast means NZ’s mountains and ranges will change things even further.

But here’s the latest thinking as of today. And our place of the day is – the wonderful southern city of Invercargill – we love you Invercargill! 🙂,%20Southland

Very informative – good work WW (looks like the mower will stay in the garage in the Far North for the next week).

Hi WW, I concur with Greg Illing here, excellent forecast as per usual and I also cannot understand anyone who complains. It’s the best forecast in NZ.

Excellent forecasts as always, can’t believe you receive complaints!

Thank you Greg! We receive complaints every day, mostly from people who think cloud seeding is occurring in NZ and we are purposely burying the news on it (even though for almost 20 years we’ve invited NZ based evidence and we never get it, other than photos of normal clouds and contrails) or from people angry it rained when their forecast said it wouldn’t (but usually those people don’t look at supporting maps and videos). Some people just vent because we are an easy target. All part of the job of being weather forecasters apparently!

Cheers 🙂
