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.

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?

Hi Obai

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

Is invercargill set to get snow tonight/tomorrow? Didn’t really get much today only a couple of snow showers

WW Forecast Team on 28/09/2020 10:47am

Hi Jono

Snow is looking more likely towards dawn tomorrow and during Tuesday itself. Remember, Invercargill gets caught in a bit of a rain shadow due to Stewart Island so while conditions may be favourable the wind direction can determine whether snow will actually get into Invercargill itself.

Good luck!
