More positive changes are happening at WeatherWatch.co.nz as we lock in some new features and promote some older ones.
We had a goal that by April 1 we’d have more variety in our stories – with our three forecasters, Philip Duncan, Richard Green and Howard Joseph creating a more even mix of comments, views and stories across the week. This has taken place in the past couple of weeks and for April and beyond all three forecasters will contribute stories and blogs on a frequent basis.
More Local Content
We often run surveys and polls asking how we’re doing. Last year you told us you wanted more local content – and we are now doing this. We have significantly dropped small international stories and instead replaced with NZ focused weather forecasts and news.

When we do source international weather news we are making them more relevant. For example, more stories about storms hitting New South Wales and Queensland rather than remote western parts of Australia.
5am National Forecast
Every day of the week you can now read our national forecast from 5am at WeatherWatch.co.nz. It’s designed to be a quick glance forecast that you can read from your mobile phone or computer.
