If it rains for 8 days

If it rains for 8 days solidly up north I will eat my hat  - certainly cloudy weather and a couple wet days, but most days only have a low risk of a shower or two - not rain or overly wet weather.  Sun, Mon, Tues look to be the wettest with just a 20-30% chance of rain for all the other days next week.

24 and 25th!

Hi,
Please tell me a positive forecast for Omaha on 24 and 25th!

As is above at this point in

As is above at this point in time. I realise Omaha is a little further north then Auckland but considering it is 4 or 5 days out one has to be a litlte more general when forecasting so the above will apply for you.

Also feel free to browse through the maps with the clickable links above.

Hopefully things work out positively for you but with ex TC Evan it has made things a little difficuilt.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi WW - you might want to

Hi WW - you might want to check the Palmerston North six day forecast - it has Saturday showing twice. It would also be great to have a fine Palmerston North Christmas day for this Aucklander!

Hi there Apart from Chch,

Hi there

Apart from Chch, Hamilton and Auckland the other centres are computer generated. Occasionally there can be a glitch where some days show up twice but hopefully at some point soon we'll iron out these issues.

As for an actual forecast for Palmy, Christmas Day at this stage is looking pretty good. Very warm, almost hot even with temperatures in the high 20's (low chance of early 30's). Light northerlies with mostly sunny skies and some cloud at times. It will likely be very humid also, which does lead to a risk of a late afternoon shower or two.

Cheers

Paihia trip 25-28 dec

Hi There,

We are planning a trip to Pahia ( up north) during 25-28 dec 2012, how would be the weather during that time, is it okay to go as some of websites like metservice showing rain .

Hi there - use our Maps link

Hi there - use our Maps link at the top of the page - you can track the rain bands for yourself and match them up to what MetService is saying.  We think there should be plenty of dry weather about after Boxing Day for the BOI, risk of a few showers here and there but becoming mostly dry.

Cheers
WW

Flight delay

Will all the flight delay on Sunday?

Hi there - we doubt there

Hi there - we doubt there will be any significant flight problems, however some regional flights may be affected in places like Gisborne.  Auckland Airport is unlikely to be affected in any real way.

Cheers

Saturday

Hi Folks,

Saturday forecast has been changing quite a lot, and very weather website has a different forecast. However I have always believed that WW has way better prediction than others, do you guys reckon it would rain all day on Saturday or just around evening? Thanks

Hi there - more and more

Hi there - more and more Saturday is looking dry - and Sunday and Monday are only borderline for Auckland - with the bulk of the rain expected to be to the east.  Heavy rain is possible with the centre of Evan passing over around Monday/Tuesday - so keep checking the forecasts, they will change a bit more probably, but Saturday is looking mostly dry all day, slight risk of showers at night.

Cheers
Phil

Evan

Are we still looking at getting some rain from Evan? looking at your forecast for the weekend and monday not so sure anymore? some rain would be nice on the farm in South Auckland, Cheers keep up the good work.

Auckland forecast

hi guys,

Your forecast today for Friday and Saturday looks good. Are you seeing it will not change ( for worst ) as we are planning to go up to Auckland?

Thanks

Forecast Accuracy

Hi guys good work you are the only site showing fog this morning.

Saturday

Hi Guys,

Firstly, thanks for all the AWESOME WORK you guys do :)

I have a outdoor event planned this Saturday till about 6:00 pm. The forecast for Saturday looks really confusing as Metservice predicts a really wet day and you guys predict a "chance of a shower".
Now what are the chances of Saturday being a completely wet or dry as off now?

Saturday is a very tough call at this point

It all depends on Evan's track.  Right now, it looks pretty wet in the afternoon, easing a bit in the evening.  However, the current track of Evan puts Auckland right on the edge of the longer-lasting precip.  That means a deviation in Evan's forecast track of even 30km would drastically change the forecast.

Stay tuned...we will keep you updated.

Cheers
Howard 

Thanks a lot

Cheers for the update mate, well my event is planned from 1:00 pm till about 6:00 pm. Hopefully it stays dry for that period :)

Looking forward for the updates.

THANKS

Sunday?

Is Sunday having a bad rainfall throughout the day ??

Rain all day looks likely, heavy stuff should be afternoon only

 But the track and timing of Evan means everything.  It's only Tuesday and Evan has a long way to go.  So it's very difficult to nail down a detailed and accurate forecast that we can have a lot of confidence in.

But we will track Evan carefully and keep you updated

Cheers
Howard

Cyclone Evan

Hi Philip
What site is best to track the progress of this cyclone? Is there a map rather than just stellite imagery?
Cheers
Philip

Hi Philip, Well we'd say our

Hi Philip,

Well we'd say our site is the best! But in this part of the world it's very hard to find decent mapping, which is why we try to collate it all in one place.  Fiji Met Service provide some maps (which we usually display here).  JTWC is another source if you can find it and some big weather websites, like weather.com, may also have some maps and products available on it.

Cheers
WW

Christmas Day forecast!!

Met service at this stage reckon is going to be overcast, possibly wet. I'm going with you guy! I'm hoping for a fine day in the Auckland region

Christmas Day Forecast?

Are you willing to put your reputation on the line yet :)

Way too early for a solid forecast

The further out we forecast, the more likely chances will need to be made by the time we get to the particular day.  It's like when someone estimates their travel time.  If someone is driving from Hamilton to Te Awamutu, they can "forecast" their time of arrival pretty accurately.

But, if someone drives from Whangarei to Wellington, they can make a preliminary estimate when they leave.  But will then likely have to adjust that time of arrival several times before you get there.

Right now Christmas Day looks pretty typical for Auckland.  Sunshine with afternoon clouds bubbling up and a slight chance for a few showers.  Highs will probably be in the mid 20s.

But be sure to check back with us as this is almost certainly going to need to be adjusted as new information becomes avaiable.

Cheers
WW 

Hi WW, The maps for the 25th

Hi WW,

The maps for the 25th of December show ex-tropical cyclone Evan right over the North Island. Is there a chance this may be the weather for Christmas day?

Regards from a worried Aucklander :(

Your seeing the same as I'm

Your seeing the same as I'm seeing, beyond this I have no further information :)

Is always a chance so something to be weary of but it is a long way off yet so may well change.

Cheers

0% precip in Auckland????

I am up in the Waitaks and have an outdoor school show tonight. I was thinking things were pretty good but now I see raindrops on the windows!!! eeek! Make the drizzle go away please.

Will do our best. They may

Will do our best. They may well clear away later as the evening goes on.

Hopefully your school show pulls off ok fingers crossed!

Cheers

Not very sunny here in Auckland WW. Pretty overcast to be honest and I'm not too sure if it will clear? :(

Has indeed stayed cloudy for

Has indeed stayed cloudy for most of the day. Even a few light showers or drizzle patches affecting western areas.

Things should improve from tomorrow :)

Android / iPhone App

Hey guys, fantastic site. Just wondering, are there any plans in the pipeline to get a Android / iPhone app up and running. It would be a great compliment to this site, and a weather app concentrating only on New Zealand weather would be good.

Hi there There is a free app

Hi there

There is a free app in the works and on the way next year. Keep your eye's peeled :)

Stormy weather

What prospect of getting the heavy rain in South Auckland today. Sky is very dark here in Manukau City and heard a thunder clap a few mins ago but no rain yet.

Lightning displays

Been lightning South West of New Lynn and plenty of thunder. A few large drops of rain speckled the ground in North New Lynn.

Back to solid SW

Back to solid SW forecast,this will be worse than last summer....

Oh no

really?

Why are people so bloody

Why are people so bloody negative! its been 5 days of Summer so far!! Give it at least a couple of weeks. And its only a few days with SW and with that comes sunshine. Geeeeez!

Oh dear!

Thanks for the info on the wind - very interesting and explains why it's usually nicer here than Wgtn! (I'm from there!) Is it really going to be quite wet over the weekend? - the washing is piling up after a weekend away!

Hi thereNot sure what your

Hi there

Not sure what your looking at exactly regrading the weekend, this coming weeking in Auckland isn't looking too bad at this stage. Sunny areas and some cloud with southwesterly breezes generally.

Cheers
Aaron

10PM update:  Hi there, could be a remaining shower on Saturday (some fresh data) but it all depends on the incoming high.  If the high is as strong as the models suggest then it should push the showers away earlier - if it lags (which it sometimes does for Auckland, always a bit 50/50!) then we can get a few showers and a cloudier and windier day than anticipated.  Keep checking for updates - we'll certainly know by Thursday
- Phil

18 degrees in December! Argh

18 degrees in December! Argh :(

I suppose its a bit better than the one day last year we only got to 15 though!

Wind at Night

Hi Guys

I have recently taken up paddle boarding so I am taking an interest in what the wind is doing as lighter winds are always much more pleasant.

Why is it that that the wind often drops off significantly at night only to return again during the day. I understand the heating and cooling of the land would create sea breezes but I would have though the weather systems coming over our country would have much more of an influence and would remain steady overnight. Maybe it's just all in my head but it always seems to be calmer at night.

Your maps page is great by the way. I check them daily.

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for your email - and for the support of our site!

During the day the sun really does add a massive amount of energy to our atmosphere - small clouds can become severe thunderstorms, the temperature can rocket and - especially here in Auckland - the winds can pick up.  With such narrow land and so much sea it makes sense that we have a breeze most days.  The sun is pretty much firing things up as the earth spins - so when we have little cloud cover especially, the winds can get up and really become quite strong - then eases after sunset as the earth cools and the sea regulates our weather here in Auckland - helping to keep things as steady as possible.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Phil
