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

i hear damage in the lower nth island. and winds already strong in auckland getting gales soon i bet. so auckland is somehow affected by the weather bomb. had a few downpours too. i imagined thunder cause thres no thunder in auckland.

Are you aware your “hourly forecasts” duplicate each other when you scroll the page with more than one of these open?
(Chrome and Firefox)
It can be a bit confusing!

WW Forecast Team on 28/09/2020 11:02pm

Hi Nick, thanks for that. We’re making further improvements to the app and web layout in the coming months. We’re also launching RuralWeather.co.nz in APP form which will be helpful 🙂
Cheers for the feedback

Hi Mal, thanks for letting us know. If it’s still offline in a couple days time please contact us again and we’ll edit it so you receive the next nearest working station. Cheers, WW

Hi WW, I just want to know what is the main difference between rain and showers? How can I differentiate or tell if it is rain or a shower?

WW Forecast Team on 28/09/2020 10:50am

Hi Obai

Here’s an article from Phil here on WW back in 2018 🙂
