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 Philip, At Port Albert, Wellsford we have had less than five mls in the last week. Ponds are nearly dry. Starting to get serious. Watch you religously on country tv Looks good from time to time but the rain just has not arrived this year. Cheers Ross.

WW Forecast Team on 28/03/2020 12:44am

Hi Ross, thanks for the local update – it’s very important for us to hear from people like you! Hopefully in a couple days we can be in a position to talk about the next chance of rain in the second week of April. Definitely not locked in yet but it is showing up so hopefully on Monday we’ll have more details. I know it’s getting dire now in some locations so we’re going to put much more focus on that now that we’re ending March. Cheers – and all the best

We have had enough rain now in PUKEKOHE. What can we expect for the next 6 weeks/ 2 months, while we are busy with the potato harvest. Will we get an early wet winter since we are down on rain fall.

WW Forecast Team on 27/03/2020 9:32pm

Hi Murray, that’s terrific to hear. We need the potatoes this year more than ever! We expect fairly average conditions (maybe leaning a little drier still) but nothing yet jumping out over the next month that suggests a major weather pattern shift to the one we have right now. We’ll have a more detailed April outlook this coming Tuesday.
Cheers

Hi WW
Just asking is it normal for day highs in April to be 20 or 21 or that is above average?

WW Forecast Team on 27/03/2020 2:23am

That’s bang on normal pretty much for Auckland.

Will taupo receive heavy rain tomorrow or just light showers ?? Cheers

WW Forecast Team on 26/03/2020 4:49am

Hi there

Taupo shouldn’t see heavy rain but a period of rain none the less will likely move through for a time late morning through till late afternoon / early evening then easing to the odd shower.
