A little foggy

Chilly out, a little foggy over the Whau river area.

Hi there, I notice Wednesday

Hi there, I notice Wednesday is looking a bit windy and rainy... will this be anything like the storm we had back in April? Feeling concerned.. will this weeks weather be ok in Auckland?

Hi there Unsettled on

Hi there

Unsettled on Wednesday for sure but not like the storm in April, answered a similar question to yours just below.

Re the weather this week in Auckland, check out our forecasts for Auckland this week by clicking on Auckland.

Temperatures to mild

Hi Team, The temperatures for this time of year seem much milder than normal. I idea when it might drop and get colder? Its not good for growing winter vegetables and we still have insect pressures. Cheers

G'day there Where ever you

G'day there

Where ever you are feel free to type that location into our search box on the home page and you'll then see a 10 day outlook with high's for each of those days, that should give you a good indication of where temperatures will sit for the upcoming future :)

Hi there, I’ve noticed that some places next week will be seeing some wind and rain... if Auckland going to get much o that? Will it be anything like the storm we had back in April where people lost power?

Hi there Check out our

Hi there

Check out our Auckland forecast page, you will see what we are saying for Auckland coming up weather wise.

Definitely some rain and wind on the way for Auckland, Wednesday could see brisk to strong SW winds. But to have a repeat of the April storm is not looking as likely.

weather station location

Hi there. First, what a great weather site! Vastly superior to one which I won't name. A while ago I saw that the Woodville forecast was from Papatawa, where I live and it was consistently accurate. It's now from somewhere in Palmy and not as accurate. Was there some reason for the shift? It's not a complaint, I'm just curious. Ken

Hey there, thanks for the

Hey there, thanks for the very positive and supporitve feedback Ken! :) The earlier shift was when we migrated from Wunderground (a network that is being shut down gradually) to The Weather Company. We've had a few issues with local weather stations. Sadly NIWA and Metservice can take tax funding, have public weather stations then stop us from using that data due to their own commercial focus. Minister Woods is currently investigating these issues. We are trying to fine tune the private network of stations which has FAR more than the public system but about 15% of these stations aren't reliable and we're working to pick those out.

We're also working on upgrades to all observations, including new technology which can work out current weather without using one specific weather station (A new IBM product we are trialling internally). We hope to make a few upgrades over the coming 12 months to improve local details.

Kind regards and thanks for the info, it's very helpful to us.
Cheers

Friday at Whangapararoa

Hi there, would it be ok to pour concrete on the day? Thanks Jeff

Hi there, at this stage the

Hi there, at this stage the day may be fairly dry but rain could arrive at night. May also be a few showers on Friday PM. Due to the chaos in the weather pattern next week the hourly forecasts we have for next Friday will be some of the most helpful data to you, especially the % of rain.

All the best
Cheers

In your video you keep using

In your video you keep using the word stormy? Is it looking stormy for Auckland?

Hi and thank you very much

Hi and thank you very much for your question. 99% of the time Phil and the rest of us at WeatherWatch don't loosely use the word 'stormy' and this indicates a rougher than usual ride for some people over the next week. Auckland, however, is on the high pressure side of the weather so the strong winds won't be so frequent but may occur. For more detailed Auckland forecasts please see the hourly wind speeds in our detailed Auckland forecasts. However we're going to be fine tuning which areas have the strongest winds in the week ahead most likely this weekend in a news update - the chaotic pattern means we need more time than usual to lock it in. The nature of crazy Autumn weather!

palmerston north temperature

I have been checking out the temperatures for Palmerston North the past few days and have noticed that the current temperature is always way out. It is showing 33c at 6:39 pm Wednesday. From Terrace End station. Just thought I'd let you know. Thanks for a great service.

Cheers for letting us know

Cheers for letting us know and thank you for the kind compliment. We are soon making changes to our weather observations. The most local may not actually always be the most accurate so we're finding that sweet middle ground between local and most accurate. Will be sorted some time in winter. Thanks for letting us know - and sorry for letting you down in this area, it's tough NZ is the only country in the entire western world to not have true open weather data even though we all collectively tax fund it for both NIWA and MetService who won't freely share it back with all New Zealanders. But we're working hard to find an immediate to fix this now thanks to IBM/private sector - meanwhile Minister Megan Woods is also investigating why MetService and NIWA are so commercially aggressive with tax funded data and blocking public commercial access to it. So that's a positive step for positive change - and catchng up with the rest of the developed world.

Cheers
WW Weekend Team

NIWA and MetService

You'd expect that since our taxes are paying them the information is owned by us. Not so, eh? Colour me surprised....not. Ken

Dunedin winter

Hi WW Team Could you possibly forecast if we'll have snow in Dunedin soon? Specific area being the University area and maybe in the Kaikorai Valley?? Thanks Team. Your forecast is gold!!

A few cold changes over the

A few cold changes over the next week or so may bring some snow to the hill tops surrounding Dunedin but mostly only briefly. No low down snow looking likely at this stage.

Thanks!

Aaron

Cheers mate!! Hahaha

Cheers mate!! Hahaha Metservice had us buried at the end of the week. You guys ROCK at WW !!

I live in Auckland, the

I live in Auckland, the videos that you have on here make the weather look very dramatic... I like to know if this week into the weekend will there be any storms like there was back last month with the multiple power cuts etc? Is the weather going to be like that?

Hi there No, the weather

Hi there

No, the weather won't be like that. Rain later on Sunday associated with a front may be heavy and winds strong from the northwest however.

Monday next week could see quite strong to gale southwesterly winds for Auckland however so will be something to keep an eye on.

Cheers
Aaron

OK thank you but nothing like

OK thank you but nothing like the weather from that storm in April? Also are we likely to see severe rain?

Based on probabilities of two

Based on probabilities of two events happening so close to each other I would say most likely not like the storm in April. No severe rain looking likely for Auckland either overall but sometimes isolated downpours from the likes of thunderstorms could bring a brief period of severe rain to isolated areas. The weather isn't exactly black and white at times, answers are often a bit grey unfortunately.

Cheers
Aaron

Weather

Hi there, Was wondering if it’s meant to be stormy in Auckland this week into weekend is it?

Hi there There will be

Hi there

There will be showery weather at times this week and into the weekend. Tuesday may see an isolated downpour or two.

As a front pushes through on Wednesday showers could be heavy in the afternoon for a time. Thursday sees gusty southwesterly winds, perhaps strong at times in the morning then easing from afternoon.

Saturday may see the return of the odd isolated heavy shower then a front later on Sunday / overnight could bring a spell of heavy rain for a time.

Cheers
Aaron

Are these normal temperatures for the month of May for NZ?

It seems to be quite hot for the month of May, last year it was far colder in the month.

Hi there That question could

Hi there

That question could have many answers, but yes in general it seems to have been warmer so far this month then it was last year at this time. But many in the South Island will certainly be thinking it's a cold day today.

Cheers

Hi there, how can I get a weather report for 21 March 2018 please, need to see the rainfall for that day.

Rain North Island Saturday - Northern Explorer Rail trip

Hi We are taking the Northern Explorer from Auckland to Wellington on Saturday. Sounds like a lot of the North Island is going to have heavy rain. Is all of the North Island expecting rain Saturday? we are wondering if we are going to be able to enjoy the scenery ? Thanks

Hi there, sounds like a great

Hi there, sounds like a great day planned and at least you'll be on the railway tracks and not having to worry about bad drivers holding you up! There is a fair bit of rain around but it's not solid rain all the way from Auckland to Wellington (it's mostly the upper part of the North Island). So we hope you get a good mix of dry areas and higher level clouds for good views. In fact more than half of your trip may well be dry (wettest in Auckland and Waikato). All the best and we hope you get plenty of great photo ops!

Total rainfal for month of May in Milford Sound

Hi. I am trying to figure out the estimated total rainfal for the month of May for Milford Sound in mm. Please can you help

Hi there You can find this

Hi there

You can find this info out here: http://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/milford-sound

Just scroll down the page for historical information. May isn't over yet also for 2018 so the only figure is for last May in 2017 which was 306mm.

Hope that helps :)

Autumn warmth & humidity

Even though we are only 6 odd weeks from winter solstice, temp's here in NW Akl are still around 19/20 every day, overnight lows 14 - 17deg, which is still pretty summer like. Noticeable is high humidity, each year its getting higher, and tropical deluges with any northerly system. Beginning to really hate a northerly now! Problem is none of the little bugs/sandflies/midges/fruitflies are being killed off due to constant humid conditions.. Fruit trees have all blossomed again after harvest - Climate change!!!

Enjoy it. Sounds lovely. Oh,

Enjoy it. Sounds lovely. Oh, and 'climate change' has been around since dirt was new. It's called Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, with occasional variances. Nothing is as perfect as you would like. Winter will be here soon. Enjoy the Summer stuff while you can...and be grateful.

We are not all ‘summer’

We are not all ‘summer’ people. Please don’t assume that your personal preference is shared by everyone. I’m looking forward to some cool weather.

autumn.....

we have new buds and leaves on the fig tree and jonquils popping up. i'd be happy if current conditions were as cold as it ever got !

Just an FYI...

Jello WW Team Just to let you know for the past week, there has not been any information in the 'NOW' section of the daily weather report. Does this require a server reboot maybe. Otherwise, everything else is A-OK. Thank you heaps for otherwise spot on weather reports. ☺ &

Hey there, thanks for letting

Hey there, thanks for letting us know about this bug! What location is it trying to pull data from (ie, where are you). We do have issues with our Observations network at times and we're about 90% through the process of shifting to a new more reliable system, but we can still make fixes the current old Wunderground network (which we still currently display).

Kind regards and thanks for the kind and supportive words!
Cheers

Hello WW Team I am in

Hello WW Team I am in Dunedin. The 'NOW" information was pulled from a source on Maori Hill above the CBD, now it says "a Dunedin city..." I hope that helps. You're welcome. You're forecasts are a huge help in getting to Uni. :) :) :)

Monthly rain totals,

Hi, is there a way to get monthly rain totals from the local weather station ( you have one really close to my farm) Thanks Nick,

Hi Nick I'm not sure of the

Hi Nick

I'm not sure of the most efficient way of finding this out but I've found out an indirect method.

When looking at the local station near you on the observation page you'll see a station ID, "ICHRISTC159" for example. If you then use this link:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=

and chuck the station ID at the end so the link becomes:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=ICHRI...

It will then take you to a page with more information on that station, not all stations have rainfall information but for the ones that do you can play around with the drop down menus and try find out that info.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers

Matakana weather on Saturday 5th May?

hey weather watch team, hope you are doing great! Got a photo shoot tomorrow at Matakana, is it looking like thick cloud all day or do you think we'll get a few moments of sunshine breaking through? Thanks and happy Friday! Briar

G'day Briar Looks like there

G'day Briar

Looks like there should be some sun about with areas of high cloud then mid afternoon areas of mid level cloud will start to thicken and lower.

Have a good one! :)

May

I’m Wondering what the outlook for May looks like for Auckland, Is it going to rainy like April?

Hi there, no quite the

Hi there, no quite the opposite - at least for the first half. We're seeing a lot of high pressure and while some showers around this Sunday and maybe next week on one or two days the general trend is for the first two weeks of May to be much drier than usual. However we can't yet clearly see the second half but some signs are that the sub-tropics will be waking up but over NZ it looks like more high pressure at this stage.

Cheers
