As of 2024 we will no longer be publishing questions related to weather forecasts if they are answered via our hyper-local hourly & 10 day forecasts, weather maps and regular daily and monthly weather & climate videos.

We’re a small NZ business with limited resources to respond to general weather questions. Our social media pages may be helpful to you, especially if you want to often talk (or groan!) about your local weather. You can find more resources from us here if that’s your thing.

“Rain Trends for Whangarei, Northland” shows no rain at all for Thursday 25/04.
“Brief Outlook for Whangarei, Northland” shows 20% chance of rain 2.6mm.

The next day the “Rain Trends for Whangarei, Northland” shows 4.3mm for Friday 26/04. And “Brief Outlook for Whangarei, Northland” shows 50%
chance of rain 1.8mm.

Hi Carla,

The reason they don’t perfectly allign is because the Trends and Outlook show different 24 hour starting times.

The Rain Trends display all hourly data for 10 days out – so it’s easy for us to display each day “from midnight to tonight”.

However, the Brief Outlook displays rainfall slightly differently: The 24 hour period is 7 hours later, capturing rainfall “from 7am to 7am the next day”. This is the way that data comes packaged. We are looking to make that clearer in the app to help though.

Kind regards
WW

Where does the chance of rain come from for the day?
I looked at tomorrow’s chance of rain for my area and it’s 0% but when I look at the hourly, It ranges from 1-14%, none of them is 0%

Thanks for the reply. My area is Belmont. Looks very different from Auckland

Hi Vict, sounds like it’s part of a bigger glitch we have. We’re looking into it and hope to have a fix next week. Thanks for the location that’s helpful.

Daily figures show 7am to 7pm, hourly shows hourly. Sometimes it will say 0% because the rain is in the other section. If that’s not the case please let us know which location so we can take a look. There have been a couple bugs in the system lately and it’s possible this is connected to that.
Thanks
