Air pressure

Nobody seems to bother putting current atmospheric air pressure figures for all the main centres on their forecasts anymore why is that ? When air pressure tells so much about what is going on and likely to happen in the near future.

Hi there, we're launching a

Hi there, we're launching a new rural focused website very soon and it will have much more data on it, including air pressure trends for 10 days out plus hourly updates for each of those 10 days. So we've answered your question - we still do it (or are at least bringing it back!). We'll be announcing this new site in the coming days...so yes, very near future! :)

Are there any polar blasts

Are there any polar blasts coming for the country in the foreseeable future, if so, how low will snow be in CHCH

There may be a cold blast

There may be a cold blast again next week - see Phil's latest weather video as he touches on this. As for Christchurch, nothing in the next week sorry.

Snow - Golden Bay Takaka Hill

Your Tuesday am snow map needs to adjust a little northerly! I'm at 600 m on top of the Takaka Hill... saw them put the snow plough through at midnight - then give up and close the road... still snow falling medium-light this morning, sun from the east but snow cloud from the Kahurangi in the south west. We have about 12-15 cm on the property, right up into the highest beech trees - you wouldn't want to drive in it, since we still have road edgings out from Cyclone Gita 2 years ago... The weka are very baffled... Jac

Really appreciate the local

Really appreciate the local update Jac, much appreciated! Poor weka!!

Stay warm,

Hi

Are we going to get snow all round taupo tonight or tomorrow

Hi there Use these maps and

Hi there

Use these maps and you can see where snow may fall around NZ over the next few days.

https://www.snow-forecast.com/maps/dynamic/nz

windy.com also has some usefull maps once you learn to navigate around them.

Basically Taupo itself will probably not see snow but there may well be some about surrounding hills / mountain ranges.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Snow in Dunedin tonight?

Hi I wonder will be snow in Dunedin tonight, I miss snow so much Cheers

It may get close overnight

It may get close overnight but perhaps just a tad to warm for anthing to settle at sea level, more then like sitting above 100 to 200m.

Here's hoping a few flurries make it to you :)

Cheers

Snow in Ohakune and Waiouru

Hi Team, I would appreciate if your team can tell if it is going to snow in Taihape, waiouru and Ohakune anytime on sunday. If yes will there be accumulations on the road? I am excited to know about this ground level snow before I could plan my trip this sunday. Cheers, Vicky

Hey Vicky, yes there is a

Hey Vicky, yes there is a chance of low snow around Central Plateau. It's unclear how heavy it will be, probably not too major, so hopefully the highways can remain open but there could be some closures, especially overnight. Snow isn't currently forecast by us for Taihape, but Waiouru, Ohakune, National Park and possibly even around Turangi snow is possible. Also, please note you can search on our website and app for every single NZ location...if there is a place name on Google maps, we have a forecast for that location. This is a service tax owned and funded MetService and NIWA do not  provide. 

All the best, safe travels and keep up to date with NZTA for high conditions too!
Cheers

Is there any severe weather/ polar blasts coming for CHCH in the foreseeable future?

Almost completely dry in Christchurh for the next 10 days, but just after that we may have another polar southerly (not yet locked in).

Governors Bay weather, 10/11th Aug

Hi there, I've got family coming to visit us in Governors Bay, CHCH, next weekend. I'm trying to figure out (and book early) if we'll be able to do some outdoor activities... or will it be too wet? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, next weekend looks a

Hi, next weekend looks a little uncertain at this stage but the current forecast we have looks mainly dry - but shows some chance of showers.

Here's our 10 day forecast for Governors Bay:  www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Governors%2520Bay%2C%2520Lyttelton 

It also includes hourly forecasts which, closer to the time, will be more helpful too. All the best with the planning and keep an eye on Phil's weather videos next week too for more context as to what's going on.

Cheers :)

Snow Dunedin

Please tell me it's going to snow in Dunedin - it's been a disappointing winter!

Hey there, yes it's certainly

Hey there, yes it's certainly been a mild winter so far overall but August (at least the first half of it) looks quite different with cold snaps. The one this weekend will be very cold in Southland but probably not cold enough in coastal Otago for any significant snow in Dunedin. There might be a few isolated flurries, especially higher up. Monday has the best chance with snow possibly falling in the city - but it's not likely to be much if it does fall, and probably mixed with rain and hail. Double digit highs by Tuesday. Another possible chance for low level snow possibly in 10 days too (not yet locked in).

Cheers :)

thunderstorms in wellington / Porirua?

Good morning, is there any chance of a thunderstorm for the next few days? And when? Cheers Thomas.

Hey Thomas, there may be a

Hey Thomas, there may be a few thunderstorms around the country due to the swing in temperatures coming in however they will be isolated and hit and miss along the western side (for the most part). So yes some chance, but whether it hits Porirua or Kapiti or Taranaki even, that is the question that's hard to answer in advance.

Cheers

Phil D

snow in wellington?

Any chance of snow in wellington from 100 meters above sea level?

Hi there, no at this stage

Hi there, no at this stage Wellington's snow level looks to be around 400m+. Sunday has a high of +12 degrees and Monday +10. For snow that low you need to have temperatures down to around +4 during the day.

Snow on the Remutaka Ranges, Tararuas, Ruahines etc.

Cheers

Fog at rotorua and Auckland airport

Hello I’m flying from rotorua to Auckland at 6.45am tomorrow. What are the chances of fog at either airport cancelling the flight. Should I start driving up?!?

Hi there, sorry our reply is

Hi there, sorry our reply is a little late, but fog doesn't look too likely tomorrow due to windier weather moving in. All the best :)

Cheers
WW

Auckland winds

Hi are the winds expected for Auckland likely to cause flight delays and cancellations? Metservice has put out possibly 80k winds? Thanks

Hi there, winds of 80km/h are

Hi there, winds of 80km/h are most likely in gusts which may affect some smaller aircraft. The main issue with possible flight delays this weekend may be more from down country where winds look stronger and may stop some flights getting to Auckland on time (or at all). Larger planes shouldn't be so much affected. So yes, some risk but it may be more due to winds down country than in Auckland itself.

Kind regards
WW

Auckland temperature dropping

Noticeable drop in temperature following an icy heavy shower a little earlier. bbbrrrr chilly Zelda

Definitely getting the change

Definitely getting the change now!

PD

Snow? Dunedin?

Any chance of sea level snow this week in Dunedin?

Hi there, the chance is

Hi there, the chance is fairly low for any sea level snow but a few flurries are possible higher in the city (but won't settle) - also perhaps some sea level sleet. Just looks a little too warm (only by a few degrees) for sea level snow.

Cheers

WW

Fog due in Napier or Auckland?

Hi there do you think there will be fog tomorrow in either napier or auckland? Got a few medical appointments to get to in Auckland so am hoping our morning flight isn’t cancelled! Thanks

Hi there, at this stage no

Hi there, at this stage no fog is forecast at either airport. We have had a few surprise foggy areas this week but there should be too much wind and unfavourable conditions tomorrow. All the best for fights and appointments!
Cheers

Snow in chch

Hey there, I no snow for chch city isn't in the forecast currently but as a percentage what is the likelihood that it does snow in chch this week. Cheers, Matt

Hi Matt

Fog

Hi there Is fog expected around 6pm Saturday night (3 August) in Chirstchurch? Worried about missing an international connection! Appreciate your help.

Hi there, no fog isn't

Hi there, no fog isn't forecast at this stage for the weekend - but strong to gale force winds are but it's too early to know if it will cause any flight issues. But fog, which is usually more problematic, is not in the current forecast. 
Cheers and safe travels!

Is any severe weather likely

Is any severe weather likely for Christchurch over the next 2 weeks?

Could be some heavy rain on

Could be some heavy rain on Wednesday morning this coming week. Monday 5th August, hints of some very cold air around then, outside chance of snow flurries into Chch perhaps? But being this far out chances are that snow level will lift or the weather for then may change completely so don't hold any hopes on that.

Looking fairly placid after that as far as I can see.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Whakapapa

Hi there Can you tell me how Whakapapa ski field is looking for this Mon, Tues -Wed? I know they need the snow but I’m keen to take the kids for a wee ski!

Hi there Apologies about the

Hi there

Apologies about the late reply.

Monday looks good, sunny areas and some high cloud with light winds. Showers move in Tuesday morning with northwesterlies strengthening during the day. Wednesday has heavy showers, some hail, snow likely and strong to gale Nor'West winds.

So Monday good, Tuesday you may get away with some sking in the morning perhaps?? Wednesday looks no good.

Cheers
Aaron

Will morning fog in Christchurch continue?

Hello It's been very foggy in the morning over the last couple of days. Is this expected to continue over the next few days? Thanks!

Good morning, at this stage

Good morning, at this stage it's looking a little less likely for fog in the days ahead due to more of a breeze to blow it away/stop it from forming. We may still get some isolated patches but generally the risks do look slightly lower in the mornings ahead.

Cheers!
WW

Fog

Hi there I have a stopover in CHCH then an international flight to catch on Saturday night. Taking off from CHCH at 6 pm Saturday (3rd August). Is fog likely to cause any issues? Really appreciate your help.

Wellington in 3 weeks

Hi there, I am getting married in 3 weeks today in Wellington (wishing for weather like it is today!) but thought even though its maybe impossible to tell, do you have any insight as to the weather on the 16th August in the capital? I am trying to prepare myself for the worst, just in case :)

Hi there, it's too far out to

Hi there, it's too far out to see that far but the second week of August may have high pressure slowly moving away which can lead to warmer weather moving in but sometimes some rain too. We really can't lock in anything with accuracy until at least 10 days out though. All the best and keep an eye on our Wellington forecasts from August 6th for the 16th. Fingers crossed it pans out as nice as it is right now!! :)

Kind regards

lightning

Why is there lots of lightning out to sea? I just checked the lightning tracker and there has been a heap of lightning. Just wanted to know. Good website and nice videos. keep it up.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the question and the very kind feedback (much appreciated!). There is a small but very active cold front out in the Tasman Sea, mainly in the lower half. The detectors in NZ aren't professional (as MetService won't share the tax owned tracker) so sometimes when lightning is well offshore our detectors here pick it up but can't quite place it. Just had a look at the global lightning tracker, which our friends at Weatherzone in Sydney use, and this confirms these storms.

- Cheers, Phil

Snow

Thoughts on Ohau (field) receiving any snow this week?
