6th April

Hi there,

What is the weather looking like for Saturday 6th april? We're getting married in east Auckland at 4pm and am seeing so many conflicting forecasts for that day.

Thanks

At the moment southerlies and mostly dry - but this is a changeable period so worth checking back.  Also - use our rain maps by clicking on th Maps tab at the top of the page - will give you a much better idea as to how next weekend is shaping up.

coromandel forecast

hi there,
planning a trip to stoney bay coromandel 10 to14 april,how will weather be and which way will wind be blowing?

Hi there - we don't provide

Hi there - we don't provide forecasts that far out but if you click on the "Maps" tab at the top of the page you can view our long range wind and rain maps - these are based on both international models and NZ data and update every 6 hours for 14 days out - really useful for planning long range stuff (but be sure to check back each day, as they will change a bit over time).

Mission Bay on Sunday

Hi There,

What's the likelihood of rain Sunday afternoon around Mission Bay area? Looking 2-8pm time frame.
Thanks! :)

Hi there- the chances of rain

UPDATED 9:50am Sunday - Hi there, yesterday we said there was a moderate to high chance of patchy rain or showers this afternoon - the good news, for you, is that we've now removed patchy rain from the forecast and replaced with showers.  The band of rain is failing to trigger (not enough energy to get it kick started by the looks of it) so showers seem to be scattered about but long dry spells too.  Chance of showers does increase this afternoon but we aren't predicting widespread rain.

Rain drops

Few big raindrops fell in New Lynn North, cloud has now moved sth.

Rain in Coatesville

HI
Just to let you know its currently raining in Coatesville (10.00am) - which would be great except that I've just weed sprayed and liquid fertilised my paddocks!

Mist in West Auckland now?

Where is this mist coming from? It is closing in?

Hi there Heard there was mist

Hi there

Heard there was mist or fog out west this morning. Looks like the wind dropped out about 4am allowing the temperature to fall. Some fog or mist was the result due to some resonable moisture in the air. It should've burnt away as the morning progressed by the looks.

Cheers
Aaron

weather for camping.

Hi. We are planning to camp near Martins bay over Easter. How likely is it to stay dry? cheers.

Martins Bay

Hi there

We're seeing a pretty good looking Easter break for camping. A mix of sunshine and some clouds with a low risk of a shower. Winds shouldn't be a problem either.

Enjoy your time :)

WW

Waiheke

Hey there, any chance of an idea of what the weather is doing over at Waiheke this weekend? Have a wedding on Saturday and we're hoping to make the most of the long weekend on the island.
Thanks

Waiheke

Hi There,

Sunday could see a few showers on a northely wind but generally dry with sunshine with a few cloudy areas on other days at this stage we're picking.

Enjoy :)

Cheers

WW

TOMMOROW AFTERNOON

HI,COULD U TELL ME IF ITS GONA RAIN AROUND SOUTH AUCKLAND AFTER 5PM?

Hi there Should be dry for

Hi there

Should be dry for you at that time. Mainly in the morning there will be the odd shower but they will clear by mid morning I'd say so by 5pm your pretty safe to be dry.

Cheers
Aaron

Saturday

Hi guys, What do you think North of Auckland will be looking like Wind wise on Saturday, I see Light winds on other sites.....for Boating.

Hi there I'd agree with that

Hi there

I'd agree with that sentiment. Light winds for Saturday from the southeast, 5 to 10 knots. When you get into coastal Northland then you would be looking at 10 to 15 knot winds from the southeast.

If your on the west coast winds will be light also, from the south or southwest at about 10 knots.

Cheers
Aaron
 

Hunuas

Hi just thought I'd check back for an update on what you'd expect the Hunuas to look like from Wednesday to Friday. Will it be pretty much the same as Auckland or should we be taking plenty of wet weather gear to camp?

Thanks!

Hi there Could be an early

Hi there

Could be an early shower on Wednesday however they look like they'll clear to a mostly sunny day.

Thursday and Friday are looking like sunny days also with light winds. The nights could be a little chilly, daytime high's will be similar to what Auckland is likely to get.

Cheers
Aaron

It was perfect

So pleased we had the second half of the week for our school camp, what a fabulous couple of days!

Not so flash for the group who were there earlier in the week though.

Thanks for the service Weatherwatch!

Camp

Hey there,

Glad we could help out and that you enjoyed yourselves :)

Thanks for letting us know how it went!

Cheers

Thunder

Hi there

At this stage there is a risk but we have it at a low level at the moment.

Cheers

Good rain yesterday 27mm in Hunua , sounds like we got a bit more than most places, any idea of the long range all important follow up rain?

Hunua

That's a great amount and thanks . Not a lot in the immediate future(showers this arvo we believe) but hopefully April sees the weather pattern changing more :)

Cheers

Weather next saturday

Hi

Can you please let me know the probability of having rain next Saturday (23.03.13) in Auckland? We have an outdoor wedding and would like to book a marquee if rain was likely. Looking at your weather map it would appear that we should have a clear day before, during and after the 23rd but I thought I should check with an expert.

Thank you

Sunday arvo

Hi there. do you think we will be lucky enough to have a dry spell from 12pm till 4pm tomorrow for a 1st birthday party??

Very, very difficult call

The way things are setting up for tomorrow, you could see patches of light precipitation at just about any time.

Having said that, whilst I think it is very likely that you will not see dry weather for that entire 4 hour block, you party is not likey to be a washout either.  Just be ready for a quick-hitting light shower from time to time.  But I certainly wouldn't cancel your plans at this point.

Happy birthday to the wee one!

Cheers
WW 

Saturday evening

MetService are predicting rain from 6pm on Saturday.... having a BBQ so hoping WW is right with only 10% chance of rain. Any further comments regarding the possibility of rain on Saturday evening?

Actually let me amend that

The light precipitation is becoming a bit more widespread.  So, I am thinking that your barbie will still be ok.   However, your chances for getting dripped on have gone up a little.

Cheers
WW 

Your barbie could get spit on

Still looking at a few patches of light precipitation.  Not everyone will see them.  Even those that do, won't get that wet.

Cheers
WW 

Camping

We are hoping to go camping this weekend at Martins Bay north of Auckland and given the threat of rain are wondering if we should still go. Any ideas on how it might look a bit further north? At this stage I'm thinking of chancing it but any additional info would be welcome.

PS. Love your site

Hi there Saturday should be

Hi there

Saturday should be ok with northeasterly breezes averaging 20 to 25 kph. Expect cloudy areas and sunny spells, high cloud will thicken from afternoon though.

Sunday look quite cloudy with light rain or drizzle patches at times, there may be dry periods now and then too. Winds will be brisk from the north. In the evening rain may be a little more persistent for a time as a front passes over.

Thanks and hope your plans work out!

Cheers
Aaron

I see met service is

I see met service is predicting rain for Sunday you have chance of showers, are they trying to get farmers hopes up, I'll take your forecasting anyday
Cheers keep up the good work.

Rain chances

Hi there,
I have to say this is one time I hope that we are proven wrong - pretty rare to see us saying that!  However the data we've been looking at all week shows rain for northern NZ is borderline this Sunday - the data is fluctuating between 30% chance of rain and 60%.  Shows there is borderline risk - but sadly it seems to suggest drier rather than wetter is likely.  Keep checking back - we are constantly checking the latest data and matching that up with our predictions - it's possible Sunday may shift a little wetter, but at the moment this is what we're most comfortable with.

Cheers
Phil

Light Rain in Pukekohe

We're having light showers here in central Pukekohe started
at around 6pm and a very welcome lower temperature.

Big Black Clouds

Here up in the Bombay Hills it sure looks like those big black clouds rolling in are rain clouds! Fingers crossed!!
