Hi WW team
I don’t know if anyone has posted about this, but as I type this, the Time/Date on your webpage is showing 12:50pm 22 May when this post is written at 6:36AM 23 May.
This issue has been going on now since 18 May. I run Firefox (up-to-date) on a Samsung phone. I’ve run all the tests incl cache, et al purges. Nothing working RE: bringing Time/Date back in sync. All other website are OK.

I hope there is a fix on your end.
Cheers
Kat

hi phill u said in your video that a cold blast is coming will that bring snow to the nelson ranges or to wellington city?

WW Forecast Team on 21/05/2024 5:24am

Just normal late Autumn snowfall on the South Island ranges mainly… perhaps some on the North Island mountains. Just a SW change that looks cold in the lower South Island in particular.

Hi Phil,
How inclement will the forecast be for Wairoa this coming week 20th May? Metserv has it for a bad week for this district.

WW Forecast Team on 20/05/2024 12:29am

Hi Bazil, it looks fairly wet this week in Wairoa with a cold southerly kicking in on Wednesday. Heaviest rain looks to be on Tuesday, then drops (hopefully) to more moderate falls: it Visit RuralWeather.co.nz or download our new app to see rain graphs/trends that better illustrate weather across NZ for all locations and keep up to date with MetService watches and warnings. Our latest weather video also explains the risks (and uncertainty) with the weather over the North Island this week.

Cheers
Phil

I’ve used your app for a number of years (both the current ‘new’ version and the old one). I visited the South Island a few weeks back and have the app set to show weather for my location.
Having returned home (Bayswater, Auckland) every time I open the app it continues to show data for Bluff before switching to Bayswater and frequently shows current info as Observed in Bluff in the ‘Now’ tab. (IBLUFF8) and (INVERCA42) are both showing now even though the rest of the forecast has switched to my home location of Bayswater.
Thought you’d want to know…

Hey guys. Just wondering if you might have, or be thinking of making an api? I have a tesla powerwall controlled by linux based home assistant. Everynight it checks openweather map for tomorrows forecast to decide whether to charge in advance using overnight power rates. However, the openweathermap (cloud cover) forcast seems a bit inaccurate.

WW Forecast Team on 18/05/2024 8:55pm

Hi Patrick, we are working with our data provider to do this – it’s a complicated path to do so but are making progress. Will add your message as part of our case to do this. Cheers 🙂

hi guys wellington had a big downpour last night on 16 may 2024 do u know why?

WW Forecast Team on 17/05/2024 9:28pm

Sorry Jet, wasn’t monitoring that particular one but there was a cold front/southerly change that came though on Thursday that would’ve sparked a few downpours. Classic cold/warm mix 🙂
– Phil
