Highest wind gust

Hi. Just wondered if you had data from last night for Hamilton. Metservice is out at the airport, which is miles out in the country and on a hill exposed to every wind known to man, whereas you guys get stuff from Ruakura. Cheers

Hi there, unfortunately the

Hi there, unfortunately the NZ Government takes your taxes but then won't share openly the data created by those taxes. Put short, you'll need to contact NIWA or MetService directly to ask them. This is the open data we've been fighting to access for over a decade now and so we can't answer your question sorry. We're the only first world nation to operate this way.

Cheers

WW

Indeed. Never mind that we

Indeed. Never mind that we have two taxpayer-funded institutions doing the same job and one of them usually being miles out of whack with their projections. I can understand why the airport was considered a good site for forecasting weather for the area as it is elevated with 360 degree views. However, it's location is now completely irrelevant as the weather isn't judged by looking out the window. Hamilton weather is often nothing like Hamilton Airport weather.

Hail?

Just wondering what sort of odds 'possible hail' is. I'm wondering if I need to put shelter over my new plants :(

If in Canterbury hail could

If in Canterbury hail could be a biggish size but chances of hail actually hitting you are not huge. Any hail for western nz wont be large.

metservice says tommorows showers could be thundery. and you guys dont think its thundery. im con fused here. metservice has forecasted thunder today. but i havnt heard any yet. i believe your forecast rather than metservice. the rain has been heavy at times today though.

Hi there, Yes there is the

Hi there,

Yes there is the chance of an isolated thunderstorm but the risk is at the lowest end of the scale. So basically showers with a risk of a brief isolated rumble of thunder. Here's the risk map for tomorrow afternoon and it looks fairly similar across the day.

Fishermans weather status plus canal levels and flows?

Hi I’m planning a trip to the South Island to fish the Twizel/Tekapo Canals. Thanks for the great weather outlook. I hear the Tekapo Canal is very low and not flowing. Can you please provide some information about the status for keen fishermen? :). Visiting fishermen are good for the Twizel economy :). The Tekapo Canal is currently not flowing and is very low, I hear. Thanking you in anticipation, Regards Damien Damien Toman Auckland

Hi Damien, Thanks for the

Hi Damien, Thanks for the message.We don't currently have any data on Canal levels and flows, you'd need to check with the hydro dams and local councils etc. As for the weather forecast we do have information on that specifically for both Twizel, Tekapo and anywhere in between :) You may find our new website www.RuralWeather.co.nz is better for you in that part of NZ to get the detailed data you need.

Hi Jo

Hmm, I have no idea for the 30th November unfortunately. Much to far away.

Come and ask about a week out if you can?? Might be able to help then.

Hope it goes well for you either way.

Wind strength in South Auckland

Hi there....about 3 weeks back in the high winds our trampoline went for a bit of a fly....We're in Karaka and there's a bit of a wind tunnel with the way the houses are lined up. We've taken it apart for now. With strap downs would you say it's safe to put if back up and also out outdoor furniture. (We put that in the garage as it most definitely would have been knocked around). Is the wind staying relatively calm for a while? I've had a look at the maps and cant see anything major coming in terms of wind.

Wednesday 25th might see some

Wednesday 25th might see some gusty winds from the southwest, apart from that you are right it isn't looking all that bad for the next wee while, say the next couple of weeks :)

high pressure

is this in coming high the worlds strongest high pressure system ever?

Hi there Ah no, there would

Hi there

Ah no, there would have been stronger before.

Cheers
Aaron

media

thats what the media are saying. strongest high ever.

Hi there Read

Hi there

Read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-pressure_area

A quote here, "The highest barometric pressure ever recorded on Earth was 1,085.7 hectopascals (32.06 inHg) measured in Tonsontsengel, Mongolia on 19 December 2001"

So the highest pressure ever recorded on planet earth was 1085 hpa or mb if you prefer. This high moving over NZ currently tops out at around 1036 hpa. So that's a 49 hpa difference. Hence why I said the current high we have moving over NZ is certainly not the strongest the world has ever had :)

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

weather Queenstown 28 th september to 3 rd october

good morning coming from Australia for a cycle ride based out of Twizel from above dates ... interested in forecast if available.rain/ winds? GM

Hi there Starting to get a

Hi there

Starting to get a bit far out, long range models suggest westerlies and embedded fronts passing through at times. I can't do any specifics this far out. A mix of wet and dry is likely perhaps.

Keep an eye on this page here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Twizel%2C%2520Canterbury

Focus on the rain percentage figures to figure out whether may be dry or not. Hope you have a great trip and feel free to come back and ask about 5 days to a week out, might have a better idea then if you like.

Cheers
Aaron

Date

If the browser has been open on the front page of forecasts (eg https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/auckland) for a few days it still says "Today". But that's not the case at all. Nowhere does it say what date all the information refers to. How dumb is that!! I know you do a free service so this isn't a complaint, just a comment....

There's a current date and

There's a current date and time in the top right corner. That clearly tells you what "Today" refers to.

Hi there, most people just

Hi there, most people just click refresh as it's instantly refreshed and based on all the traffic we have very few people stay on any of our pages for more than 1 minute let alone days! The only page people stay on for several minutes is the Lightning page and that does auto-refresh every 60 seconds. Will take your idea into consideration if money allows us to change things, we're shifting to the Amazon platform soon and that will allow us to modernise the site.

SSW Event

How has the SSW event developed, and is it possible to predict any general trends for October yet. My hunch says start the tomatoes later this year. Regards Steve B Wellington

Hi there, the SSW is a

Hi there, the SSW is a climate event that can't be directly connected to weather forecasts in NZ at this stage as it covers a very large area. So far NZ's weather has been classically spring-like for the past few weeks. October can often be he most chaotic month of the year. If anything, so far most regions are trending warmer than normal despite some recent cold snaps (at the start of this week for example). Just like with El Nino and La Nina too - they don't always impact our local weather here in NZ

Sunday racing at Hampton Downs

Hi WW, we have a race meet at Hampton Downs this Sunday and the forecast is looking rather bleak - is it too early to tell just how heavy the rain will be on the day? We've had four race meets there this year and it's rained every single time! I keep being told there's a little microclimate out there but I'm not entirely convinced. Many thanks.

Hi thereRain doesn't look

Hi there

Rain doesn't look heavy at all, just the odd isolated shower possible from midday.

Hope you have a good day! :)
