Weather for Te Kopuru

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.

Hi, this afternoon we

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.

Hi Diana - if you look at the satellite map to the right of the page you can see about three of four frontal bands moving up the country.  Within those fronts are isolated torrential downpours and the odd thunderstorm.  There is some more active weather moving into your region this afternoon, then again overnight.

Well if this is what weve all been waiting for Im totaly dissapointed.Sure weve had heavy rain and a few gusts of wind but the way you weather guys have been forcasting things I was hoping for a bit more of excitement, the sun is now shining, and the temp is 14.7 dec, 1001 hps not to bad . Are things going to get worse or is this going to be alot of hype and a big fizzer.

Hi Phil - WeatherWatch.co.nz

Hi Phil - WeatherWatch.co.nz believes all thunder activity today will be ISOLATED and not widespread, however the area that they will form in IS widespread.  That means its hit and miss for everyone today.

It's heeeere

The front just came over Papamoa with moderate gusto. It got dark & ominous, then large drops of rain, and a burst of wind with a down pour. No thunder storms yet.

Its coming!

OOOoooooooooo dark clouds are just starting to move in at Papamoa - wind has picked up a little. Instead of light breeze it is more wofty (if there is such a word). The light has dimmed and the day has taken on a dull grey. No rain so far today. Amazing how quickly it has changed from the mornings weather of high cyrus and sunshine.


On the Pouto Penninsula (Kaipara Harbour) Strong wind gusts, since around 11 am this morning, sun is out at present, , have had a few showers, lots of angry looking clouds about. No thunder as of yet..

Patchy blue sky with small low grey clouds --light winds -- but there is a heck of an impressive wall of towering white approaching from the west! Stands out like a sore thumb and pretty much stretches across the horizon.
