Re: Upper Hutt rain % rating confusion

Your main info-blocks at the top say 0% of rain for daytime. (as at 9am 20/4) Yet your 24H chart for this same period says 14%-11%-8%-.... Very confusing. This happens all the time now with metservice as well.

Good morning - what we

Good morning - what we display is our general WW Wellington regional forecast, in which we deem 0% chance of rain. The hourly forecast comes from IBM and is specific to the location you have chosen, and this shows any variation in your local spot. We'd suggest if you're confused at all, ignore the hourly forecasts and focus on the main WW one as it's generally more accurate. MetService's set up is very different and their data often has no association with their forecast. Our hourly data is related to your precise location of choice and this is the extra details we provide to help you plan your day but as we say, just stick to the main WW forecasts if it's too much detail to make sense of.

Cheers

WW

just funny

tonights forecast says "clear,light winds and cool when the sun goes down,just sayin :)" i cracked up laughing. you guys are the best forecasters ever.

Haha, it's fun to be fun

Haha, it's fun to be fun sometimes! :)  Glad we made you laugh!
Have a great long weekend

Chch tomorrow/sunday

Greetings..was just wanting to ask you about the chance of hail..met service are mentioning it in their forecast.. thoughts please..thanks

Greetings to you too :)  At

Greetings to you too :)  At this stage we don't see the right amount of energy for hail - but there may be some locally heavy downpours along with a cold change that may feel a bit wintry for a time. There is some chance but the risk is deemed so low it's perhaps not worth highlighting.

But please let us know how things pan out

Minus What readings in Dunedin

Hi WW There are strange readings for the NOW report in Mornington, Dunedin. Everything has been showing a minus sign since a couple weeks ago. The ID number is: IOTAGODU6 for Belleknowes, Dunedin N.Z. Can you guys give the station a remote tickle or a new one? Thanks. Your accurate reporting for NOW temps is hugely appreciated. Indie

Good morning Indie. Thanks

Good morning Indie. Thanks for letting us know about the faulty station and we have currently removed it until it's working again. Thanks for your kind supportive words! If any further problems please just let us know.

Cheers
Phil D

How's this?

Hi -40°c Observed at 2:26pm from: Cambridge (ICAMBRID181)

Good evening and thank you,

Good evening and thank you, we have removed this faulty weather station until it is working again. There are several Cambridge weather stations on our network so it will now find the next nearest. If you find it hasn't resolved itself by tomorrow morning please do let us know. Thanks for your help improving our network.

Cheers

Not showing correct temperature for Cambridge

What is going on with your temperatures today. This morning when it was about 6 degrees at 4am you had it at 17 and now it is about 5 and you have it at minus?

Good morning, thanks for

Good morning, thanks for letting us know. Can you please provide the name of the Station ID (In the NOW box, it will say something like "Observed at 8:51am from: Cambridge (ICAMBRID181)". If you can give us that unique ID we can look into why that station is reporting odd numbers and will block/remove it if faulty.

Rain Forecast for Napier

Hi all really appreciate this great site, a lot more accuracy than some others I find. As this latest rain front is approaching us (in Napier, Hawkes Bay) I always wonder if our ranges are taken into account - particularly when it approaches from any westerly direction. We're in a rain shadow area and quite often when rain is predicted you can guarantee if the prevailing winds are from the West/NW we will get nothing or next to nothing. Thank you!

Hi there, thanks for the kind

Hi there, thanks for the kind and honest feedback :) Yes the ranges are definitely taken into consideration for rainfall totals and we're working to improve the way we display our Napier forecasts (and other regional forecasts) and as part of this we'll be adding rainfall totals and better ways of showing rain risks. In the meantime, here's the rainfall accumulation map for all the rain falling between now and Saturday night/Sunday morning... you're certainly affected by that rain shadow. Probably better chances for rain next week when it turns more S to SE again. If you can't read the key the blue/green area is just 5-15mm.

Have a good weekend! 

Cheers

Thanks for that! I will keep my eyes on that map, it's a good one! Cheers and have a great weekend!

Tongariro Crossing

Hi, Thank you for your great forecasts and information! Just a quick question - would you have a weather forecast for the Tongariro Crossing this Saturday (13 April)? Thanks!

G'day there Saturday looks to

G'day there

Saturday looks to be a mix of sun and cloud at this stage, mainly dry with only the small risk of a shower or two. Winds from the south. Not terribly warm with a high of 10 degrees.

The unexpected rain

Hi Guys, thanks for the fascinating item on your news page of why we have unexpected rain in Auckland today! Keep up the brilliant work!

Thanks very much :)  - WW

Thanks very much :)

Where has all this heavy rain

Where has all this heavy rain come from? Right now in Auckland it's pouring down with rain and yet the forecast doesn't even say anything about it. Not very happy about it. Forecasting needs to be improved.

Hi there, for the next 3 days

Hi there, for the next 3 days there is a SE wind flow across the North Island that will produce a fair bit of dry weather in Auckland but also some areas of rain and showers. Last evening there were some beautiful ares of high cloud but also some darker clouds which could suddenly produce rain. These showers will be randomly popping up without warning - SE wind flows are dry for Auckland most often but a slight shift to ESE can produce rain. We're an entirely free public service, you have other options in NZ - like MetService, NIWA and MetOcean which are all forecasters your taxes pay for/own.

Cheers
Phil D

You can please some of the people some of the time...

Why anybody would complain about such a brilliant forecasting service is a mystery. By the way, thos rain is missing my black bamboos, would you please shift the wind to slightly more easterly? Many thanks.

Sunday afternoon - forecasts vary depending on who your look at.

Hi Aaron I am liking your Sunday forecast as we have an outdoor farewell planned in Auckland! However, my friend, who is yet to be a WeatherWatch convert tells me other met services are forecasting showers in the afternoon. Is the variability in the forecasts due to different models of forecasting your team is using compared to others? Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi there, fair question! The

Hi there, fair question! The wind flow over the North Island for Saturday, Sunday and Monday is one that encourages rain in the east but dry in the west. In set ups like this Auckland can be both dry and wet so forecasts vary. Forecasting comes down to trusting certain models plus the forecaster's gut instinct, memory and local knowledge - and is why we all interpret models differently sometimes. For now Sunday afternoon looks dry but it may change - keep an eye on our HOURLY forecasts for Sunday as well as that shows % of rain which is helpful to work out if the risk for wet weather jumps anywhere. We'll also be updating regularly today and tomorrow as we track this weather. Sorry we can't be more definitive but showers in these set ups are hard to forecast too far in advance.

Cheers
Phil D

P.S Glad you're a convert! :) 

Averages

Do you hold averages for Waiuku? Average rainfall for each month, in particular, but average, lowest and highest temps would be good, too.

Hi there That is something

Hi there

That is something you will have to go to NIWA or Metservice for, apologies we can't help in that regard at the moment.

Cheers
Aaron

Rainfall in Taipuha Northland

As per Phil's video today requesting information on the amount of rainfall various areas received. I was surprised to see my rain gauge full at 30 mils. Paddocks are turning green as I watch!

Weather 28 March 2019

Hi Could you please tell me what the weather was like in Tauranga on the 28th of March 2019

Hi there Best bet is to go

Hi there

Best bet is to go here: https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/tauranga

Scroll down and you can see some information on past weather. On the 28th it looks like there was 2.6mm of precipitation, 18 degrees was the low, 22 degrees was the high, the peak wind gust for the day was 31 km/h from the north.

Going by those temperature figures I'm taking a punt it was a fairly cloudy day, perhaps the odd light shower or drizzle patch about.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Rainfall

Last night at 3.00 am approx, I was woken by torrential rain that lasted about 15 minutes and there was also thunder. No recorded rain has shown up at all, why is this please? I live in England street Linwood at the Woodham road end.

Yes I saw that shower / area

Yes I saw that shower / area of rain move over Chch then. It was an unstable pocket of air that moved up and delivered that heavy precipitation. It might have missed the raingauge at Christchurch airport therefore no record showed up, it was fairly isolated.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi, thanks for the reply. I

Hi, thanks for the reply. I thought that there'd be a closer weather station than the airport one as I specifically clicked on the Linwood Weater Watch.

There does look to be a few

There does look to be a few stations closer to you than the airport one. Perhaps they missed out on the shower or didn't have rainfall measuring equipment? Most of the stations on the WW observation page are run by amateurs / hobbyists and at times there is a chance a few may not be accurate.

Te Aroha Weather

Hi There Any idea of the weather for this Saturday in Te Aroha as we have a horse running and she does not like it too wet??

G'day! Saturday looks like a

G'day!

Saturday looks like a sunny day for Te Aroha, winds from the southeast. Afternoon temperatures in the high teens, perhaps early twenties if you are lucky.

Have a good one! :)

Long range forecast guess?

Hello there I was wondering if it would be too far down the track to get a rough guess as to the weather in Dunedin on the 17th of April. A shifting of flats (bigger and quieter for study) is in my forecast. Here's hoping for good weather. Cheers Dee

Hi Dee Yes unfortunately

Hi Dee

Yes unfortunately that's a bit too far into the future. Come back and ask say 10 or perhaps 7 days out, might start to have an idea then. :)

Cheers
Aaron

Hello Aaron and the

Hello Aaron and the Team. Thank you for your forecast on the date-in-question. The moving date looks like it will be perfect. Thank you for your accuracy. Dee

where is the rain?

So far since hearing that the South had torrential rain and floods and that we would get some of it North Island further up Auckland area across the bridge. Weds morning we had a glimmer of wetness very early and nothing since but plenty of clouds! Does this mean we will not be getting the same as South this week? Any possibility when? Carole

Good morning Carole, you

Good morning Carole, you should watch our videos as all week we've been the only forecasting saying not much will come from the South Island rain band as it moves northwards. We're also now working with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), Waikato Regional Council, Fonterra, Dairy NZ, Auckland Council and other stakeholders in the upper North Island on a weekly basis to discuss how dry it is - I share with you what I discussed with them in the latest video we have including upcoming = rainfall maps. Basically my entire videos are about upcoming rainfall so keep an eye on them daily Mon-Fri for the full details. We don't take any forecasts from MetService or NIWA, we're entire independent. :) 

Have a good weekend
Cheers

Sunny spells

Do sunny spells have blue sky for Auckland on the weekend?

May be fairly cloudy at times

May be fairly cloudy at times but you should see some blue sky too. We have some right now finally too!

Auckland

How will the weather be on the West Coast of Auckland on Saturday? Will the showers be squally? Will it be super windy? Will it still be a dry day for a wedding? Thanks so much for answering all my questions :)

Hi there No squally showers

Hi there

No squally showers or super strong winds. Just a moderate east to northeast breeze. There may be a few showers but mainly in the afternoon, expect many dry areas between showers.

Hope your day goes well :)

WW

Rain

When is South Otago likely to get any substantial rain? thanks.

Hey there, it looks like you

Hey there, it looks like you may get 20 to 30mm over the coming week. It does look a little hit and miss though. Goes dry again after Wednesday next week for a time then more rain possible in Week 2 of April.

Cheers

WW

Here's the 7 days rainfall accumulation map for the lower South Island (Until April 3)

Weekend

Hi phil/Aaron Apologies as I know a lot of people are enquiring about this Saturday. I love your work and go what you guys predict. Met service and Niwa are predicting a few showers in the afternoon. I’m really hoping you guys are right and it’s a day of sun with cloud and a low risk of a passing shower. How confident are you of this set up? Really love your work given you are free service. Keep it up there are loads that appreciate you. Not all heroes wear capes

Hi there, not sure where

Hi there, not sure where specifically you are but guessing you're asking about Auckland? Saturday sees a few showers caught up in an easterly flow over the city. It looks mostly dry at this stage, but the nature of showers means they are hit and miss for wherever you are. Generally it doesn't look overly wet and Sunday looks drier still. Keep an eye on our HOURLY forecasts over the weekend as they help with the % of rain and anything over 60% is a much greater chance of being wet. Hope you have a great weekend, let us know if you need more help.

Cheers for the message and great support! :)

Trip up north

Hey team, traveling through Northland from 1-4th April, staying in Paihia most days, what's the weather looking like?:)

G'day there That is a few

G'day there

That is a few days away so things could change between now and then. But currently it's looking wet on the 1st then the 2nd, 3rd and 4th is looking dry and mainly sunny.

So not all bad perhaps :)

Cheers
Aaron
