Queenstown Weather

We,re planning to travel to Queenstown from AUckland on Feb. 24 to 27. will the weather be conducive for our visit?

Hi there Mon and Tue may be

Hi there

Mon and Tue may be mainly settled with areas of sun and high cloud, winds are looking light. Wednesday cloud thickens and lowers, the odd spit possible from afternoon then expect some evening rain which clears overnight. Thursday dawns mostly sunny with light winds.

That's how things are looking currently, keep up to date here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Queenstown

And use these maps if you like to show where settled weather might be or areas of rain / fronts:

West Auckland rain yesterday...

Did yesterdays rain in the west of west Auckland break the 'drought' record of days without rain? Or is there just one weather station in Central Auckland it is counted on? Or are there several stations that all must be under 1mm? Was very ominous to see the dark clouds yesterday over the Waitakere Ranges, never reached us in Blockhouse Bay though. What a tease!

Hi there, great question!

Hi there, great question! From what we gather it needs to be recorded by ANY station in the region. The problem in NZ is that Niwa (Government Agency) is now aggressively commercially competing against Metservice (another tax funded Government Agency). The two Government Agencies are now producing two different records for their own commercial purposes, as was again highlighted yesterday when MetService had to shame/correct Niwa: https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/climate-news/119568558/aucklands-big-dry-claim-of-40-days-without-rain-probably-incorrect--metservice

Because MetService is being fairly quiet about Niwa's attacks on them over the past few years and now Niwa's new set of "records" the Government itself is eroding their own (New Zealand's own) historical data simply to make a few extra $. No other country on earth has an official double up of weather & climate records in order to make more profits.

Good luck working it out! :)

Thanks!

Thank you for that article link. I missed that one on stuff. I should of gotten the calendar and counted the days myself. Sounded a bit dodgy that it was 40 days from the 14th to the 15th Feb! It rained here all day on the 14th Jan. I remember distinctly as we were at the airport getting my Dad from his Wuhan trip that evening. And we sat in the car at McDonalds waiting for it to stop raining to go inside as the flight was late. I won't mention it rained here last week too, one evening. Can't remember what day, maybe just over my house, always seems that way. The plant loved it. Yes have been following your website for many years, love the videos. I'm a big fan. And ask the occasional question....Love the drama between Metservice and Niwa, better than Shortland St.

Sat weather in Auckland

Hi Phil, other websites are predicitng rain/thunderstorms in Auckland this saturday. what is the likelihood of this/rain at this stage?

Hi there That is 5 days away.

Hi there

That is 5 days away. Trying to predict thunderstorms that far out is a bit tricky, yes there looks to be a chance on Saturday but will that actually come to fruition by the time Saturday comes around? It may, it may not.....

But a front does look to move through on Saturday giving a period of rain / showers. The timing could change a little between now and then so there's no point getting into specifics at this stage, just be aware a front will bring some rain or showers for a time on Saturday. Keep an eye on our Auckland forecasts for updates.

Forecast precipitation Napier NZ

Dear Sir I’m a long time fan oF WeatherWatch. I’m in my early eighties, retired near Taradale. The heat from November 2019, continuing now through mid February, is making life very difficult for most ‘oldies’. There seems no sign of relief. Sadly the ‘hopeful messages’ promising showers (never rain!) have led some to coin an expression : ‘Nothing lies like a Napier forecast!’ Our complaint is with MetService which months of observation confirm as quite unreliable except perhaps as saying ‘don’t look for relief- there’s none coming!’ Why is all precipitation heading south - west ? Is help from the ‘tropics’ (N.E.) now a forlorn expectation? I’m hoping this weather, with so many distressing side-effects for the ‘plus 80’s’, won’t force me to buy up elsewhere? Thank you very much for your consideration and excellence of service. (Fr) John A. SM

Good morning and thank you

Good morning and thank you for your question - and your support :)

The week coming up is a fairly hot one - it's not only north west at times but it's also sub-tropical. Hottest days will likely be later this week when 30+ is again possible with overnight lows around 20. But a cool down looks likely this Sunday and into early next week. The set up this year has seen more high pressure stuck over the North Island and that blocks both tropical rainmakers and Southern Ocean fronts.  

If you can stand up to this week then you'll likely find some comfort in the cooler, showery, change possible this Sunday and next Monday.

Kind regards and all the best,
Philip Duncan

Heat and drought in Hawkes Bay

Hi could you tell us when to expect rain in Napier. Incredibly dry...any relief in sight? Thanks

Is there any real rain coming in the next couple of months. Will this weather pattern change, thinking of culling stock numbers ...

Hi there, in NZ it's hard to

Hi there, in NZ it's hard to see one month out let alone two months, but at this stage there may be some better chances for showers in the coming weeks, and still plenty of activity in the tropics as we go into March.

This story has our best thinking leading up to early March: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/drought-watch-how-rest-february-shaping-rainwise-with-2-cyclones-nearby-5-maps

Rain

We live in Beachlands and are on tank water. I have been told tankers are now scheduling earliest deliveries 7 April. Beachlands seems to be a bit of a micro climate and we tend to miss a bit of Aucklands rain at the best of times. Is there any rain on the horizon for us?.

Hi there, the best way to

Pukekohe East HEat

It’s been a hot day but at around 4 PM the heat around Pukekohe East really turned up. Feels like the mid 30’s! Normally getting cooler at this time not hotter!

Next decent rain fall?!?

Hi... on tank water & love to know when the next decent Rains coming? Cheers

Hi there Would help to know

Would help to know where you are in New Zealand.

sun intensity

hi weather watch team.. Have a question. We are now coming up two months past longest day. Therefore is the sun intensity and burn time the same as it would be 2 months before the longest day,or dosent it work that way. regards john le sueur.

Hi there John, great

Hi there John, great question. Yes the intensity of the sun and the UV rays will be similar to 2 month prior to the longest day. But there is thermal lag/delay where the seas don't reach peak heat until March....so that helps contribute to warmer conditions around NZ than we would get 2 months prior to the longest day. The weather patterns now also tend to be slower and contribute more warmer airflows than we would get in say October.

Cheers

Easterlies (or lack of them) Auckland area

Hi I Cannot remember a summer where we have no easterly (NE/ENE) winds across the region. Since November 2019 this must be the driest, sunniest ever period, and i know we're suffering, especially those on tank water,like us. SW winds have been prevalent, which has been moderating the temp's, which has been great, and even though temps have been hot, humidity has been generally around the 50% mark, which again, is highly unusual. Waimauku Fan

easterlies

a week of nor/easters with (warm) rain would be great ! watercare say no shortage, just demand is up, but it is a worry having got this far into summer with no troppo weather events. we are on tank water in a high catchment area, waitaks, and have never bought water however are getting close this year.

Trail riding

Hi We are riding the Pureora Timber Trail in Central North Island on the 24/25 February. You're showing rain for most of next week. Is that likely to flow on into the following week or will we have dry conditions for our ride? Jo

Hi there That is quite a

Hi there

That is quite a while away, anything I say now may become irrelivant as forecasts often change that far out. Best bet is for you to keep an eye on these maps here:

http://weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Use the "Rain" tab then use the drop down menu to go through to the 24th / 25th Feb, at this stage it's looking quite anticyclonic and fairly settled so you may be in luck. As the days move forward keep an eye on those maps and you'll see how it's shaping up the closer those dates get.

Have a good trip!

Cheers
Aaron 

Thanks will do

Thanks fingers crossed

Cloud

Any chance the clouds going to ease up in invercargill? And a bit of heat would be nice. Thanks

Looks like sunny weather

Looks like sunny weather breaking through this coming Friday afternoon. Saturday starts mainly sunny but cloud thickens from afternoon.

Sun doesn't really break through again till the 21st Feb it seems.

Temperatures don't look overly warm although Saturday could get into the mid twenties.

Hamilton barometric pressure

I am trying to reset my barometer and saw that Fairfield Hamilton is recorded as 888???? Surely this has got to be a faulty reading

HI there, yes 100% that is

HI there, yes 100% that is faulty! Give us the Station ID and we can remove that weather station if it's broken. If you you want accurate barometric pressure check out www.RuralWeather.co.nz (takes 10 seconds to first load) - scroll halfway down the page to Detailed Data and you can see hourly barometric forecasts for the next 10 days at your location. Also, check out our observations page to see current air pressure readings in your area to get a good feeling for what it is.

your rain maps bare starting to show showers

We sure are, but the

We sure are, but the definition of showers means they are hit and miss - so we don't usually make much of a news story about them unless they are especially heavy or widespread, to avoid giving false hope to those who need rain desperately.

Chance of rain on the 20th?

I’m getting married in tauranga on the 20th at 7pm. Are we going to need to use plan B for rain?

Hi there, congrats for the

We live on Waiheke Island and have had to move to our daughters in Auckland as we are nearly out of tank water. 5 week wait for the tanker

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the local update. Ouch with the 5 week wait too. Very dry conditions for the rest of Feb with only a few showers possible (and they may entirely miss Waiheke). Fingers crossed it sorts itself out end of month - we're providing daily updates on where rain clouds may be and we are mostly ignoring any small showers/drizzle to avoid false hope.

Thanks for the information - all the best

ICHRIS33

The station that's used for Christchurch conditions (ICHRIS33) is 5+ degrees hotter than most of the others today, is there a reason you use that one in particular?

Hi there, sadly Niwa and

Hi there, sadly Niwa and MetService are both tax funded to provide weather and climate observations but block free open access to that tax funded data (so we all must collectively fund them, but then can't openly use that data). Thankfully the Commerce Commission is now investigation this - both Niwa and MetService are now being looked at for A) Anticompetitive Behaviour and B) Abuse of Marketplace power. You can read more here: 
https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2019/09/metservice-niwa-under-investigation-by-commerce-commission-for-anti-competitive-behaviour.html

So we use a private network now, some data is verified via IBM and other partners, while some stations are simply private weather stations owned by anyone (and this is likely the one you're noticing looks wrong). We've removed ICHRIS33 for now so your local Now observations will soon default to another nearby station - hopefully more accurate. We're also very soon about to upgrade our site - giving you the choice of location weather stations to look at, not just one.

Kind regards

WW

Holiday Getaway

Hi there, Thanks for the

Hi there,

Thanks for the question and kind words. Please use the rain, swell and wind maps in the MAPS tab at the top of the page (and on the left side of our free app). This will be a useful tool as it goes out 10 days and you can zoom in and out - very helpful for those on boats. Generally speaking it looks fairly dry.

All the best and safe travels!

Previous rain

Where can I find previous rain ie yesterday in New Plymouth? Thx

Many thx. Your site is much

Many thx. Your site is much Better than others, just learning how to navigate it. Cheers

Hi there Best bet is to go

Hi there

Best bet is to go here: https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/locations/new-plymouth/past-weather

I don't see any rain for the 8th or 9th though. 0.6mm on the 4th Feb, 2.2mm on the 29th Jan, 0.4mm on the 28th & 24th Jan and 16.4mm on the 13th Jan. That's the last 30 days figures for New Plymouth.

Beyond that you'll have to make enquires to Metservice or NIWA to get information further back.

Hope that helps!
