Phone exploded?

"WeatherWatch.co.nz also received a confirmed report of a phone landline which exploded after a lightning strike."

Hi, Just curious whether that's in Auckland and which part of Auckland. Thanks.

Heard it was in Te Atatu

Heard it was in Te Atatu South - but not 100% sure sorry.  Definitely in Auckland - and we saw a photo of it too but unable to republish.

Wind

Love the site and your approach to forecasting. Great to have another independent take on things to build up the picture of what weather might turn up.

One request. Many of us who track the weather closely are sailors, boaties, fishers, and pilots (I am all 4), I generally prefer your forecasts but really struggle with the wind terms you use, particularly on the longer range forecast, you seem to alternate between breezes, winds, gusty, blustery etc and rarely give any leads on expected strengths. I think in knots but am happy to convert from km/hr which you use for the short forecasts.

Would it be possible for you to explain/define the standard terms you use for wind in the longer forecasts and link them to a wind range or the beaufort scale. Ie if we see fresh breezes we then know you mean somewhere in the order of Force 5 @ 17-21 knots

Thanks

Hi there - thanks very much

Hi there - thanks very much for the message and glad to hear you prefer what we do. I absolutely hear you - we have always enjoyed using more creative words to describe the weather - wind speed, however, is one area we've admittedly been inconsistent in at times.  We're hoping to have a more uniform approach in the coming months - and maybe adding a few new fun creative words in the mix too - as this often explains the weather better, but there's that fine line where it can sound too casual and therefore not accurate enough for someone such as yourself.  So watch this space - our more creative style will soon have a key to help explain and make things clearer.

Thanks for your support - and we really do appreciate the constructive feedback, it's how I've grown the site to what it is now,

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Thanks

Thanks, I don't mind terms like 'nine tenths of bugger all' or 'blowing the sheep backwards' as long as I know what they mean and they are used consistently. Weather forecasts shouldn't be boring after all :)

Haha! We've had a few people

Haha! We've had a few people ask us to try using some typical kiwi sayings, like "Sweet as" for example.  Who knows - but it's fun to be creative so long as consistent.  :)

Lightning Tracker

There has been a problem with the lightning tracker over the last 24 hours, keeps coming up with an error message saying my "security settings have blocked an application from running with an insecure or expired jre." i have tried on several computers and come up with the same message, no settings have been changed
Just to let you know
Cheers Nick

Hi, I had that problem too

Hi, I had that problem too with the Grey Lynn tracker yesterday. Had to download and reinstall Java, and that fixed it. Not sure what caused the problem though!

Our tech says it's a Java

Our tech says it's a Java update - people need to update to the latest Java to view it.  In saying that, we're working on finding alternatives to the tracker as we know it's not perfect. We wish MetService would free up their lightning tracker instead - afterall, it's owned by the public. We only run this service because they wont free up this publicly owned data, which we believe is important for safety reasons.

Thunder storms

Hi Guys. The thunder storms we had over St Johns last night were the loudest I have ever heard! Why is it when previously we have had thunder overhead it has never been so loud as last night - made our little house (and us!) tremble!

I'm not an expert on this one

I'm not an expert on this one but I believe really cold air can help make thunder sound lounder. I've noticed that here in Canterbury if there's been a thunderstorm and it's quite cold, the thunder sounds lounder then usual.

Just looked it up actually, here's something to help you out! :)

Hi there whens this ment to hit papakura?

Enjoying the Storm

My decks and driveway are white from the heavy hail storm we had half an hour ago. Looks like its too cold outside in pukekohe for it to melt away and my sister just had a really hard time driving down our steep road and had to leave her car parked on another road and walk as she was slipping all over the place. Never seen hail stick around like this. Glad to be inside where its warm.

Love it!

Awesome thunderstorm, hail and rain here in Tuakau - keeping cosy and warm in front of the fire...got to love winter when you're warm and dry inside!

Yes that is the nice part

Yes that is the nice part about winter I agree :) Awesome that you have a thunderstorm, I haven't seen one in a while!

To the admin

I look at both metserivce nz and weather watch nz , it is hard for me to say which one is the best . I probably prefer to come to weather watch , due to i think it is more accurate , plus i find good articles on daily basis , and most important , i love that questions get answered by admin , so i big thanks for weather watch admin , thanks so much and also people should be liking that also .

Now my question is not only about the weather but to weather watch i say ,do you have your own satellites or you really on someone else , im asking this because i have noticed that between metservice and weatherwatch there is a sometimes a small or huge weather reading in which i get really confused which one should i believe it trying to be accurate , just recently i visiting metservice and they said weekend looks fine though cold still remains while weather watch says odd showers still visible on saturday ,so take that as an example i hope it makes sense . So basically is this due to whats showing on the radar or your predictions .

thanks

Hi there -thanks for your

Hi there -thanks for your question.  We no longer monitor MetService forecasts - we use entirely independent data via the US Govt, a private US firm and a NZ company called MetOcean - then we create our own forecasts from that.   Like any competiting businesses we have different ways of reading the weather.  We let the public judge who they prefer.  Neither is perfect and both say they are the best!  So we let the public decide.  But our forecasts are 100% seperate from MetService - and we're very proud of what we've achived without the huge tax funding they have.

Glad to have you along - and thanks for taking the time to write in.

Cheers
Philip Duncan.

How accurate is the Sunday

How accurate is the Sunday forecast? As in MetService they shown an opposite forecast to here - Sat fine spell, while Sun shower.

It will remain wet and

It will remain wet and windy,another low coming straight down from the north next week,until then it be wet with southwesterlies.

Hi there, we don't monitor

Hi there, we don't monitor their predictions because they flip flop too much.  Our forecast is about to updated in the next couple of hours - both Sat and Sun have shower risks.  The reason for the two forecasters being around the other way is because really this is just about wind direction - Sat could become dry then Sun a few showers form in the SWer.  But you can also argue a few showers may linger on Sat morning and Sun could be mostly dry at first!  Either way - we expect the weekend to be mostly dry but very cold on Saturday with a risk of an early shower.  Sunday also has a low risk of a few showers and cloudy spells from the Tasman.  Check for our update this evening.

Hmm, thanks for noticing that.  WeatherMap seem to be having tech issues today (they supply our maps and raw data - we write the forecasts).  We'll let them know!

tokoroa

Thunder and Hail!

Just had a Thunderstorm with Hail in Blockhouse Bay!

West Auckland this afternoon/evening

Hi there, we have an outdoor market planned in New Lynn this afternoon/evening and are wondering if we should make the call to cancel today's market - any advice on weather in New Lynn from 4.30 - 9pm today? Many thanks!

Showers and clear spells -

Showers and clear spells - but showers are going to increase at some point.  Showers get into lanes of traffic basically - and you can have busy lanes and empty lanes (clear).  It's hard to know if we'll be in the busy lane, the quiet lane, or a combination of both - simply because of the size of this system.  Sorry we can't be more specific!
