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 WW,
I just want to know how many air masses do we have in New Zealand? Because I think it varies from country to country.

WW Forecast Team on 6/07/2020 7:57pm

Hey Obai, this link explains air masses (although it may be a bit heavy reading) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_mass
In NZ we focus on a few main areas… 1) the Polar area over the Antarctic region (dry and cold), 2) the Southern Ocean (stormy), 3) Australia’s interior (hot and dry), 4) Sub-tropics (can be warm and very wet). These are basically the main areas that shift our temperatures the most and give us our extremes.
Cheers

Why two variations of forecast for Massey and the other is Massey comma Auckland
Weather Forecast for Massey

Showers then rain later (possibly heavy), easing overnight as blustery to gale NE winds tend lighter NW.

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecasts/massey

AND YET
Weather Forecast for Massey, Auckland

Blustery NE winds, gale in exposed places. Rain, heavy at times. Winds turning NW later and easing, along with rain easing.

Massey as against Massey, Auckland

Hi Ray,
They have identical forecasts – we updated the forecast this evening and one was showing the older forecast. You may have selected it around the time we update so one had the previous forecast, the other the new one. (as the second one you’ve quoted was the updated one, to highlight rain had arrived now – and leading with the wind which was peaking an hour ago.

Cheers
WW

Hi, what will the weather in Hammer springs be like this Monday? As we are planning to go there.

WW Forecast Team on 2/07/2020 10:54pm

Hi David, we had hourly and 10 day forecasts for Hanmer Springs.
You can find the WeatherWatch page here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecasts/Hanmer%20Springs,%20Canterbury

Not look too bad, perhaps a bit cloudy though.
Cheers
