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 Guys – we are based in Twyford Hastings and have seen in some models 100mm+ forecasts and with hail likely. we are pip fruit growers and with large volumes of high vague crop due to harvest this week, can you comment on our likelihood of getting through unscathed ??

WW Forecast Team on 29/03/2020 7:48am

Hi Andrew

If hail comes down tomorrow it will probably be of the smaller variety or maybe none at all. Heavy rain is possible although at this stage it may sit just offshore, it depends on the exact placement of an occluded front which is lying on the coastal fringe tomorrow. If it comes onshore a touch there could be the potential for very heavy rain, but if it’s just offshore it may mean only a few showers or spits.

Tuesday could produce isolated heavy showers with a chance of bigger hail late afternoon / early evening but this may be more inland about the ranges then clearing there at night.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi guys – how many mm of rain do you think Taupo ( kinlock) is due tomorrow afternoon and over what period – considering it says thunderstorms! Concerned farmer !!

WW Forecast Team on 29/03/2020 3:52am

Hi there

Bit of a hit and miss scenario for you tomorrow. Thunderstorms due to their nature means you could get heavy downpours in one area then down the road you may not get much, so a bit hard to put a figure on anything. Isolated heavy falls may deliver 10 to 30mm in a short period of time, perhaps a little more if you are lucky. But on the other end of the scale if you miss it might be a 3 to 5mm kind of day.

Hope it goes your way!

any thunderstorms possible in auckland in the next few days? I would love a good storm. but i have not heard thunder for so long now.

WW Forecast Team on 28/03/2020 11:57am

Hi there

Doesn’t look to be, may be the odd isolated shower about. Keep up to date with our Auckland forecasts.

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
Phil
