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

hey guys you heard about the wind that hit the harbour bridge? was it a waterspout or just a squall. the rain was heavy at that time too.

WW Forecast Team on 18/09/2020 2:20am

Just strong winds I’d say, no water spouts.

true. hope they fix the bridge. i hear tramps flew and powerlines fell as well.

josh on 18/09/2020 1:44am

despite the high pressure the rain was briefly heavy for a time in auckland. which was good. raining again here now. i think some places got more than 10mm.

josh on 16/09/2020 10:25pm

somethings wrong with your thunderstorm risk maps when i click on the loop thing the maps fade out for some reason.

ps more storms on west coast south island. im so jealous.

WW Forecast Team on 16/09/2020 10:32pm

It happens, sometimes there’s a glitch in the data coming from GFS. It should resolve in the next run.

Yes a few storm on the West Coast indeed, good stuff.
