Hi Phil,
How inclement will the forecast be for Wairoa this coming week 20th May? Metserv has it for a bad week for this district.

WW Forecast Team on 20/05/2024 12:29am

Hi Bazil, it looks fairly wet this week in Wairoa with a cold southerly kicking in on Wednesday. Heaviest rain looks to be on Tuesday, then drops (hopefully) to more moderate falls: it Visit RuralWeather.co.nz or download our new app to see rain graphs/trends that better illustrate weather across NZ for all locations and keep up to date with MetService watches and warnings. Our latest weather video also explains the risks (and uncertainty) with the weather over the North Island this week.

Cheers
Phil

I’ve used your app for a number of years (both the current ‘new’ version and the old one). I visited the South Island a few weeks back and have the app set to show weather for my location.
Having returned home (Bayswater, Auckland) every time I open the app it continues to show data for Bluff before switching to Bayswater and frequently shows current info as Observed in Bluff in the ‘Now’ tab. (IBLUFF8) and (INVERCA42) are both showing now even though the rest of the forecast has switched to my home location of Bayswater.
Thought you’d want to know…

Hey guys. Just wondering if you might have, or be thinking of making an api? I have a tesla powerwall controlled by linux based home assistant. Everynight it checks openweather map for tomorrows forecast to decide whether to charge in advance using overnight power rates. However, the openweathermap (cloud cover) forcast seems a bit inaccurate.

WW Forecast Team on 18/05/2024 8:55pm

Hi Patrick, we are working with our data provider to do this – it’s a complicated path to do so but are making progress. Will add your message as part of our case to do this. Cheers 🙂

hi guys wellington had a big downpour last night on 16 may 2024 do u know why?

WW Forecast Team on 17/05/2024 9:28pm

Sorry Jet, wasn’t monitoring that particular one but there was a cold front/southerly change that came though on Thursday that would’ve sparked a few downpours. Classic cold/warm mix 🙂

Hello

I’ve checked the chance of rain today for Bemont, Auckland, Bayswater and Takapuna. They all say 0% chance for the day, but when I look at the hourly chance, none of them are 0.

And for the coming days forcast, I noticed the chance are written down in tens (ie 10%, 50%, etc). Is it rounded off to the nearest 10?

WW Forecast Team on 16/05/2024 8:20pm

Hi Vict, yes basically it rounds it up or down to make it cleaner to view. Also, the percentage of rain that we display is generally the hours of daylight .. so if it’s below 5% it goes to 0%. We’re actually in talks with the data provider right now and one thing we want to do is sharpen up the way we display chance of rain… as sometimes those 7% risks can produce a really heavy downpour. We’re also working with MetService to tie in radar alerting into our alerting app. When the chance of rain is below 10% you can have a shower – but it tends to be very isolated to one part of the city. The fact NZ has no open weather data means that, in NZ, this global data isn’t as sharp as it is in, say, Australia – where open data (that’s data the public fund) can be freely used for the greater good.

Hope that makes sense – that’s why if rain matters to you then the new Rain Trends in our App (or at RuralWeather) are so key. That chance of rain can be the best guide and telling you when a shower is possible, even if it’s only a 3% risk!

Hi Guys. Just wondering why the North-Easterly wind and rain was so cold today?
It’s supposedly a sub tropical airflow, but doesn’t feel like it?
I’m at Owhango on the Central Plateau.
Thanks
