Tom on 4/07/2022 9:16pm

Hi Phil, Just wondering if is it the coldest time of year now. Here in Auckland we would have normally had some frosts by now but we haven’t and none are in the forecast. I’m trying to grow some food considering the horrendous prices nowadays and am wondering if some plants can be planted out. Normally I wait until August but with no frost in the forecast I’m wondering if i try it. Having not had any frosts (we only got one or two last year) I am wondering what the soil temp is approx. Thanks, Tom

WW Forecast Team on 4/07/2022 9:26pm

Hi Tom, yes for Auckland now is usually the coldest – but the snow event in Auckland over a decade ago was in the middle of August. For Auckland to get a frost we just need a nice clear sky S to SE polar flow which can happen from May to September. July is traditionally the coldest time in Auckland, and much of August too – although in August you tend to notice the extra sunlight and by mid to late August the general feeling can be a little brighter and warmer with westerlies returning again as we head towards spring here in the north.
Cheers

Hello. I was wondering if there was any place I could find data based on cloud cover from past days. I am doing a project and would love to have this information. Thank you.

WW Forecast Team on 3/07/2022 9:47pm

Hi Michael, sadly NZ in the only country in the modern western world to not share tax funded data openly. (In other words, Government Agency NIWA won’t allow WW to display tax funded weather observations as they claim it’s their IP..even they NIWA is 100% owned by the Govt/taxpayers). This means you’ll need to contact NIWA directly to help with your project. Wishing you all the best, kind regards,
Phil D.

Hi Team, we are looking at moving to Amberley and we wandered if the weather would be colder there than Kaikoura please?
I feel the cold more as I get older?

Many thanks Lynne

WW Forecast Team on 1/07/2022 3:42pm

Hi Lynne

I don’t have any exact data on Amberley or Kaikoura, you would have to ask Metservice or NIWA for that information.

But in general. Winters may be a touch warmer in Kaikoura due to the town being right on the water front there. Amberley is quite close to the coast too but it is a touch further inland so may be frostier for example. Summers may be roughly the same in both locations although I’d say Amberley may pip Kaikoura and be a little warmer.

A toss up between Amberley and Kaikoura in terms of where would be warmer is not going to be a stark comparison. Amberley or Kaikoura versus Northland would be though.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

hi what is the chance for snow in the lower north island on Wednesday

WW Forecast Team on 1/07/2022 4:44am

Hi Fraser – may be a dusting on the ranges but nothing too substantial for the lower North Island next week. One to keep an eye on though – but nothing major low down.
Cheers
WW
