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, Marty here. 1st time botherer, long time observer. I’m planning a trip from west Auckland to the north shore this afternoon. First of all I would like to know if the wind is going to tip my truck over on the harbour bridge and damage another structural support, and secondly can I book in a dry spell between 3-6pm as I’m made of foam and don’t want to get waterlogged while working outside?
Keep up the good work!

WW Forecast Team on 20/10/2020 10:37pm

Hi Marty, Thanks for your message! Winds today will be lighter than they’ve been in recent days so you will be fine on the bridge! 🙂 As for rain, there is the risk of a shower today mainly up until about 4pm otherwise looks mainly dry today. 🙂

so these daily afternoon showers/downpours over next few days a sign of la nina. and a sign of differant summer this year. i hope for thunder here in sth auckland but i know they isolated and hit and miss.

Jim on 20/10/2020 4:15am

And if the weather drys up again you’ll be complaining …

As someone who lives in the south, the Southern Ocean is the weather system that often affects us most. Do we know what the Southern Ocean is doing at present and into summer? Is SAM going to be a little quieter this year?

WW Forecast Team on 19/10/2020 10:36pm

Hi Barry. The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is expected to be positive for the remainder of October, also La Niña tends to favour positive SAM during spring and summer. Take a look here for more info from the team at BoM in Aussie: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/enso/

Kind regards

so theres a chance for thunder auckland this week yyay.

WW Forecast Team on 19/10/2020 12:51am

Perhaps a chance on Saturday but it may not happen as it’s a very narrow area, Northland to the north and Waikato to the south have a slightly better chance. But fingers crossed!
