So much for all the wind we’re getting from the west coast, 17 degrees right now and fine skies with the odd passing shower, typical farming weather.

Well, nothing came of it WW. We have sunny skies, blustery wind and clouds moving across the sky fairly quickly, no thunder. Ah well, maybe next time.

Lovely fine afternoon with not much wind after a bit of rain this morning.
A bit of a NW out there at the moment.

Hi WW, we are in Matakana, nothing really to report here apart from a few showers, are we in the area for more? We have patchy blue skies at the moment. ??

There’s a clearance in conditions – as per the satellite map to the right of the page – but a new front moving into Taranaki will reach Auckland region tonight. Low to moderate risk of isolated thunderstorms and squalls.

Hi Guys west auckland and it is very sunny and relatively calm. metservice still has severe thunder storm watch in place and extended it futher to include the coramandel, can we it expect it a little later today or do you think it has missed us.

Hi, this afternoon we downgraded the thunder risk for Auckland to "low" for Sunday afternoon (from moderate) and "low to moderate" for this evening (from high). There is an elevated risk from the next front which is due in a few hours.
We currently have a policy to avoid contradicting official weather warnings from MetService however we don’t believe the chances are "high" for thunderstorms today.
We also believe any thunderstorms will be isolated and not too widespread.
