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

I’ve been a long time supporter of WW in Northeast Waikato. But since you teamed up with Metservice I have found that you have been over- forecasting rain that has not arrived during the summer / autumn period. I found your forecasts more accurate before you joined Metservice.

WW Forecast Team on 15/05/2022 8:18pm

H Ian, we haven’t teamed up with MetService, we simply display the public rain radar. Our data has been independently rated as most accurate rainfall forecaster in NZ by both the NZ Government and by an international firm that measured IBM. No forecaster is perfect but we’re pleased to be leading the way as most accurate in NZ, even if not perfect (yet!).
Kind regards
WW

Can you tell me what the weather for Saturday for queens birthday weekend is likely to be please as looking at holding a carboot sale

WW Forecast Team on 8/05/2022 1:31am

Hi Carole

Much to far away at the moment to know sorry. Come back and ask us 4 to 7 days out if possible?

Also a location would be handy too! 🙂

Best wishes for the sale if we don’t hear back from you.

Any guesses on what the winter will be like in Queenstown snow-wise?

WW Forecast Team on 4/05/2022 11:02pm

Hi Alexa, thanks for the question. At this stage we don’t have a strong forecast for this but there are signs that it may be a later start this year. Too mild at the moment (and dry) – but actually sometimes a milder winter can create more snow in southern areas. The month of May doesn’t look too snowy around Queenstown, but there is a temp drop coming next week which bring a dusting on the mountains.
Cheers
WW

Hi Team, What’s with the warm weather we are having in Kaiapoi still? Last year I remember frosty mornings and stunning sunny days? Not complaining but seems unseasonably warm.

WW Forecast Team on 3/05/2022 12:07am

Hi Amber, thanks for your question. Yes very mild at the moment, due to a few reasons. 1) High pressure stuck over NZ acts a bit like a glasshouse, keeping it fairly mild by day. 2) Marine heatwaves/above normal coastal sea temperatures act a bit like a luke-warm hot water bottle at night time, keeping conditions mild. 3) The high pressure zones over NZ are stopping decent cold southerlies from heading right up the nation. Our latest ClimateWatch update explains more about why it’s mild and what you can expect in the month(s) ahead: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/climatewatch-not-your-normal-may-on-the-way-15-maps-video

What are the chances of it being a very cold/snowy winter in invercargill after this cracking summer we had. Haven’t had a decent snowfall in a while so was just wondering if this is the year

WW Forecast Team on 3/05/2022 12:09am

Hi Bill, thanks for your question. At this stage we’re not locking in any significant details about winter but a snowy blast in Invercargill is possible every year. This year it’s warmer and drier than average – but sometimes warmer weather in winter can actually make for more snow (as cold air hitting warm, moisture laden, air can see very heavy snow). The weather pattern NZ has had this year doesn’t support major southerlies yet – but that could change in winter. We’ll have more details about the winter weather pattern in a few weeks time.
Cheers
WW
