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

Hiya, looking at the Whangarei area for a few days … either from end (27) Aug or from mid (10/17) Sep. Don’t mind the temperature, but want to avoid driving in stormy weather or buckets of rain. Which would be your best bet? Thanks for the excellent work WW!

WW Forecast Team on 8/08/2020 4:18pm

Hi Helen

Wish I could answer that with some accuracy but those dates are too far into the future for anything specific.

The closest information we have would be this video Phil has done here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/new-nzs-climate-outlook-for-august-sep-oct-rain-and-temperature-trends-12-maps

It’s more about trends and patterns that may occur over the next few months.

Hope you have a good trip away when you do go! 🙂

Cheers
Aaron

Hi WW

You said in one of the articles lately, an early spring pattern is developing. So, can we say that it’s spring right now, according to Mother Nature?

WW Forecast Team on 8/08/2020 5:08am

Hi Obai, a spring weather pattern is forming now but that doesn’t mean winter weather is over. Also some plants don’t trigger new growth until the days get longer than the nights and that isn’t until the end of September.But yes, Mother Nature sure is showing signs of spring around parts of NZ now 🙂 Spring is all about winter slowly fading away and hints of summer warmth coming in. In NZ winter blasts and frosts can still be an issue right through until October or even November.

Hi there, Canterbury Weather Updates is currently forecasting a significant snow event to sea level next Saturday. What are your thoughts on this eventuating? Going by your data, it looks as though it’s a bit far fetched currently.

WW Forecast Team on 8/08/2020 12:34am

Hi Dylan,
We do expect a surge of colder air later next week and into Saturday – but certainly nothing to indicate a significant snow event, or a sea level snow event. Keep an eye on http://www.RuralWeather.co.nz – the largest weather data site for Canterbury to keep on top of it. Some potential for some polar air which is why the highs are dropping back to single digits but looking quite dry next 10 days.
Cheers
Phil D
