Saturday Boating

Hello there WW,

What would the Shag Rock/Whangaparaoa area be looking like on Saturday for Boating please.

Many thanks

G'day there Much like the

G'day there

Much like the forecast above the weather should be fairly sunny. Although a look at the latest information suggests southerly winds may be a little brisk even gusty at times. Could be a 1 to 1.5m swell, a choppy sea could be a good possibility.

Best to check back in a few days for an update if you like, may not be the best conditions.

Cheers
Aaron

Auckland Fog

Hi

Hi there

No, fog does not look likely this Saturday morning :)

Thanks for your question.

Birthday

Hey WW,

I was just wondering if you had a rough idea of what next weekend in Auckland is looking like? The 6th-8th of September. Its my Birthday and I just want to know if I should be sorting an outside event or an indoors one?

Thanks Guys!

:)

Hi there - too early to know

Hi there - too early to know for sure but the early forecast shows a large high in the area around then, so fingers crossed it times it for your weekend.  Ask us again this weekend if you like, we should have a better idea by then.

Cheers

WW

Rainbows

Can you tell me if the atmosphere gets too warm to show rainbows?

Hi there - rainbows are

Hi there - rainbows are caused by light, so it's more about brightness rather than temperature.  Rainbows can form in extremely hot conditions and extremely cold.

Foggy light rain

A widespread cap of foggy light rain covers New Lynn,Ranges not visible, Avondale Racecourse barely visible.

Thunderclap

Why was last nights thunderclap so loud and experienced
Over such large area? Wasnt even raining where I was. Ive been many storm and never heard something like that. Was expecting it to be the main item on the six oclock news

Hope that helps.

When do you update your

When do you update your forecasts? I don't check the net in the morning, so I always assume that forecast that I've read before I sleep is the forecast for the next day I awake!

Auckland we are constantly

Auckland we are constantly monitoring through the day. While at times there may not be obvious changes in the txt, sometimes we change the wind speeds or rain percentage chances etc.

Yes hopefully the forecast you read in the evening is consistent and stacks up for the next day.

Cheers
WW

Thunder

Wow that thunder and lightning at 4am was impressive and so loud. Loved it.. What's the chances of more today?

No more expected today,

No more expected today, mainly showers from now on. Sounds like it was a hum dinger this morning!

Aaron

You mean scary! My house

You mean scary! My house shook so badly at first, that we thought it was an earthquake or an explosion!

Lightning

Other weather sites suggest lightning tonight or early tmorrow ? Chances ?

Looks like that prediction

Looks like that prediction came to fruition!

Rainfall for August

Hello ,
How much rain have we had in Auckland so far this month.
My brother in Melbourne says we made the news there for wet weather.
Edward

Hi there So far it seems

Hi there

So far it seems there has been nearly bang on about 100mm this August in Auckland. It possibly hasn't been spread out however with some days getting quite high rainfall.

Whangaparaoa Rainfall

Hey Phil,

What has been the rainfall levels in Whangaparaoa over the last few days? Ive never seen so much water flowing off the farms in Silverdale and around our place in Arkles Bay. Keep up the good work mate, love yr site and the daily video updates. Best out there! Cheers

 Hi there, for

 Hi there, for Whangaparaoa

On the 21st there was 26mm of rain and on the 20th there was 16.6mm. The 19th had 10.2mm.

So it's certainly been a bit wet recently.

Thanks for the comments, really appreciate them :)

WW

Sorry if this has been asked,

Sorry if this has been asked, but when you say "50% chance of precip" does it actually mean that its 50-50?

It can do - but it can also

It can do - but it can also be read as half the city should see rain/showers.  We tend to use 50% as a growing scale of confidence though - for example, 40% we'll see a few showers across the city, about 50% we'll see them across half the city.   In rare occasions we'll use 50% on a day that's sunny and dry - that's when we know showers are borderline.   When I personally see 50% i also tend to think it's a 50/50 chance, but that is higher than a 40% chance!   For the most part we avoid using 50% due to this reason, it can cause confusion - so prefer to go with 40 or 60 where possible, if it's in the middle somewhere.

Cheers

Phil

Auckland helensville

Hi there my sons bday will be at the pools on Friday can u please let me now if the weather will be nice wet mild thanks

Hi there, if we knew anything

Hi there, if we knew anything more we'd put it in our forecast above!  Keep an eye on our rain maps - temps look average for August on Friday.

Moving House

Hi Phil

We are moving house on Friday 23rd August out near the Waitakere's in Auckland. What is the outlook for rain on this day? I have been looking on other weather sites and they all seem to be telling me a different story. Some help would be appreciated as to when the right time - morning, noon or evening would be the best time to shift our furniture :)

Thanks

Hi there, Friday is a bit

Hi there, Friday is a bit confusing because we have a weak front moving through - some forecasters automatically label this as "rain" others "a period of rain" and others "showers".  It doesn't look too major but could be a period of frequent showers/patchy rain at some stage on Friday, then clearing later.  If it's any comfort, we're pretty confident it won't be as wet as today!    Watch my latest weather video (on the homepage) - keep in mind that was recorded around lunchtime so use our rain maps too, plus our forecasts and that should be as close to accurate as it gets (we hope!).

Cheers

Phil

Australia

This is not a question but just a comment.

Im loving the Weather Watch site. In comparrison to the other available weather sites you have created something here thats easy to read, lost of info, photos and this Q & A column. Brilliant.
Im taking the family to Aussie soon for my 50th birthday. In the past few days and heading up to October I will be looking at the weather over that side of the ditch and again, I can access all this on your site.
Im really impressed Weather Watch. Great job.

Hi there - thank you very

Hi there - thank you very much for your comment, we appreciate you taking the time to write in to us! Have a fantastic time in Aussie and happy birthday!. By the way, a great website in Australia is WeatherZone (we share news stories with them). Also the maps on our site are pretty accurate for anywhere overseas too - use both sources and you should be covered :)

Thanks again - Phil, Aaron and the small WW team :)

Tuesday in Auckland

Hi Phil

We have a school trip to MOTAT on Tuesday, is the outlook ok for this?

Cheers

 At this stage it looks sunny

 At this stage it looks sunny with southerlies on Tuesday, clouds and westerlies possibly moving in around Wedneday.

Thank you :)

Thank you :)

Next week

Hi Phil

Looks like a very large high moving in next week but the maps only go up to Tuesday. What are your thoughts on how long the high will stick around?

In recent times the weather systems have been moving very quickly hence the changeable weather but maybe next week could be different for a change? It has been a while since a high has dominated so perhaps another sign that the season is on the change?

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave, At this stage the

Hi Dave,

At this stage the high next week looks fairly strong but not 100% dominant over the nation.  Could be some sinking air pressure around the north again, which could lead to cloud and possible showers.... also a front in the Southern Ocean will have a whack at it bringing a cool change to the south and east and perhaps some strong W to SW winds.  But the high looks fairly in charge next week except for that Weds/Thurs SW change which could bring in cloud and maybe showers next Weds or Thurs.  Weather is very lazy at the moment for the most part - slower and less drama when fronts pass by (ie, no major change in temperature).

Cheers

Phil

spring huh! not one sun

spring huh! not one sun icon.

Spring is about new life and

Spring is about new life and changeable weather - that's exactly what's happening! Doesn't mean sunny and hot! :) WW

Heavy shower

Had a very heavy short shower in New Lynn late this afternoon.

mini quake

just had our house shake quite a bit for 10 seconds in west auckland..thought it was me but the neighbour came outside too quite surprised at what just happened..

Low cloud day

The New Lynn Crane is slowly getting covered as low cloud covers it in a gentle S breeze.

Saturday 25th August

Hi there WW, we are planning a family boat day out on the Hauraki Gulf this Saturday coming up. What is the view so far on how the weather on this day will shape up? I realise we are a while out. Thank you,

Hi there At this stage a

Hi there

At this stage a front looks to be due late Saturday afternoon or early evening. This is a NW / SW change. Morning sunny spells then increasing cloud and increasing NW winds which may be a little gusty. Showers look like they may develop in the afternoon then expect a period of rain with the front.

Check back and feel free to ask more questions closer to the time :)

WW

oooops Auckland weather

Sunny spells are going fast as beautiful clouds blow in S Breeze.

Astute observation there,

Astute observation there, there is a bit of cloud about. It may well clear at some point. Thanks.

WW

Sunrise cloudy period?

Wanting to go see the sunrise tomorrow, are we expecting it to be blocked out by cloud or rain during that time? Or is there not much chance of having clear skies by the east during 7am ?
