Before asking a question:

For over a decade WeatherWatch.co.nz has loved to receive your comments and questions here, however we need to tighten up on our rules of reply so that we can spend more time focusing on forecasting.

Before you ask a question please ensure you have read our latest news stories, weather video and specially made infographics on our homepage, as we will no longer be answering questions that are already generally answered there, or answered already in our hourly or 10 day forecasts at both WeatherWatch.co.nz or RuralWeather.co.nz

Hi Philip. We watch you on CTV nightly saying we need rain in the north. Here in Wellsford our dams never refilled last winter. This year they are already full. The pastures are now quite wet. Because the nights have been so warm this winter, it
looks like the best July for grass growth I’ve seen for a long long time.

WW Forecast Team on 14/07/2020 8:32pm

Hey Ross, thanks for the local update. It seems that Wellsford area has had a soaking – yet some further to the west of you aren’t close to where you’re at. Great to know you’re back to 100%, that is really awesome! Now with this warm sub-tropical weather also, it’s a good sign going into spring (which for Wellsford is only a few weeks away when you start to notice winter fading).
Cheers for the update (and support)

Hi WW,
I just want to make sure if this weather station is correct: IAUCKLAN680?

WW Forecast Team on 12/07/2020 11:33pm

What’s the issue with it Obai? Let us know so we can focus on that specific problem. Thanks for the Station ID too!
Cheers

I think the temperature is incorrect. I’m not sure if it’s correct or not, but it looks incorrect.
