Hi there
How can I tell what the chance of fog that would disrupt flights is?
Many thanks
Jane

WW Forecast Team on 19/06/2024 8:22am

Hi Jane, in our new app under “Trends” (or at RuralWeather.co.nz) there are Cloud/Fog graphs, and you can search all NZ locations. It’s not totally perfect but gets it right about 90% of the time. A good indicator for risk anyway.
Cheers

Hi Team,

Just wondering how each weather station within a city shows a variation in the predicted rainfall for the day?
In particular, Whangarei has 4 weather stations. I have noticed the two in Horahora start 25mm+ and the station in Raumanga starts less than 2mm. These two locations are neighbouring suburbs. I know this is just a forecast, but wondering which is more accurate? On the general weather outlook, it is saying 17mm today.

WW Forecast Team on 18/06/2024 11:44pm

Hi Tiffany, not sure what you mean by weather station’s showing predicted rainfall? Each weather station is privately operated and does not provide a forecast – they just show current conditions or perhaps what has already happened (ie, rainfall). In most NZ cities temperatures can vary by several degrees at the same time of the day and reflect different rainfall too. But our forecasts (where you search for a different location each time) can also vary with rainfall (but not as much as you suggest in your comment – which makes us think you’ve seen rainfall that has already occurred at those various weather stations). The weather stations themselves reflect what has already occurred – and not all of them have rain gauges. Finally, the hit and miss nature of showers and downpours can do this too. The forecast rainfall won’t be in the “Now” portion of your weather, only the “Today” “Tonight” and next 9 days.

Hope that helps!?
Cheers

Is there anyway the Matamata Racecourse readings can be ‘reactivated’?
