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! :)

Cheers

Weather for Friday and Saturday

Hi. good day. I keep checking the weather since last week coz we'll be having an outdoor party on saturday particularly at Halswell ChCh. Is it ok if i ask for update maybe just until tomorrow if in case there is changes to the weather report. I know chch weather keeps changing or changes overnight but yeah, just wanted to have someone really tell me if it is a yay or nay. So we can make our final arrangements please. thank you heaps!! Fingers crossed i will receive a good news like it would be all clear that day. Lols. Thanks.

Hi there, not a problem at

Hi there, not a problem at all and yes the forecast for many parts of NZ this weekend is a bit frustrating as we can't 100% lock in some of the rain/showers. Two things, firstly keep an eye on the HOURLY chance of rain for your part of Chch on Friday/Saturday - it's very helpful and usually quite accurate at working out beginning and end times for rain (and peak wet hours etc). Secondly, I've had a look at the maps and Friday there's a chance of afternoon showers or patchy light rain. On Saturday it's still 50/50 with the bulk of the rain north of Chch but it may slide southwards during the day bringing rain back in again towards afternoon and evening. Sorry but we can't be more accurate than that as it's a bit of a weird, slow moving, set up which means we sometimes can't really lock things in until the day itself. But generally, sorry some risks of wet weather both days.

Cheers and all the best either way!!
Phil D

Oh thank you. Yeah, as ive

Hi there, sadly while all

Hi there, sadly while all NZers must tax fund NIWA, NIWA does not openly share observations with us to freely share back with you. You'll need to therefore contact Government Agency NIWA and ask them to help. NZ is the only country in the western world to block private forecasters from sharing tax funded data to help answer simple questions like this.

Kind regards

Control

Thank you for the insider perspective. I am flabbergasted at the hidden levels to which we are manipulated and controlled in this country.

Thank you for doing what you do, so well.

System problem

Thought that you should know that when I look for your forecast for Turoa, I get a page for Turoa-Mt-Ruapehu that also gives next 24hrs for that title, but everything else reads Thames.

Hi there, thanks for this -

Hi there, thanks for this - we'll get our Tech to take a look and see what's happening.

11:09am update: Hi again, it appears we don't actually have a forecast for Turoa Ski Field at this stage (we are working on mountain/ski forecasts in 2020). You may want to select another nearby very location, such as Horopito, Rangataua, or Ohakune.

I feel like it hasn't stopped

We've had plenty of showers - but many regions are actually below where they should be rainfall wise annually. Some drier days in the week ahead though :)

Wow

I have full admiration for people living in Auckland at the moment. Just seen the details for day of rain the second half of winter! Wow, I don't know how you manage to live in such a wet place - as well as deal with the traffic. Must be horrible. Couldn't do it (again) myself.

Its

called wine.....thats the only thing that gets us through LOL!

It isn't usually this wet but

It isn't usually this wet but I'm so over the rain.

the endless squelch

Hi, looking ahead for late spring weather patterns - are there any indications that it will stop raining almost every day before the end of October? I have given up trying to dry anything outside. The ground outside is so sodden that this morning there was water standing in the cat footprints on the lawn. Everything is saturated. The 10 day forecast is like reading Christopher Hitchins famous article about being waterboarded. I know we have an event likely to bring some cold weather surprises happening at the moment but it is the rain that is depressing. Even pulling out a weed brings up lumps of claggy earth. Ugh. I am in Auckland of course.

Hi there, Auckland is in a

Hi there, Auckland is in a rainfall deficit so it's trying to make up for lost time now it seems! Once we get through today the next few days ahead look mostly dry and next week may kick off warm and dry as well (just ignore this weekend!)

Cheers

Phil D

Belated thanks. We had a few

Belated thanks. We had a few beautiful days and it was such a relief. It is the daily showers that make life difficult and everything in the garden is sodden. My father in law worked for the Met Service until he retired in the late '80s and always used to say, if anyone asked him about the weather, to look out the window.

auckland thunder

May be some isolated thunder

May be some isolated thunder this afternoon :)

WW

I love reading your weather reports. I find them much more accurate than any of the others. Thank you Dunedin

thunder

Is there anuymore thunderstorms for auckland today?

so over the cold

Dear WW Is there any relief in sight from single digit temps in Dunedin? I can't rely on the fallacies of other weather guys. No trust in them. I am so over the coldness. I hope it won't be one of those cold years. Thanking you ☺

Well, that's winter for you,

Well, that's winter for you, happens every year and slowly as we come into spring cold temps cling on like mud stuck to the bottom of your shoe. But eventually cold temperatures will become less frequent. This coming Thursday looks warmish.

Check out our high's for the coming days in Dunedin here https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Dunedin

more thunder

will there be more thunderstorms for auckland coming up just wanted to know

A chance exists this

A chance exists this afternoon but if they do happen they will be very isolated.

WW

oh ok thanks

ok thanks so theywont be as big as this morning. but ah well. apparently theres a risk for tommorow too. I just love the sound of thunder. and this mornings thundery front was awesome. it came all the way from austrialia

...Pukekohe...Heavy rain off & on since I was wokenup at 4:30am...cat jumped on our bed...no it's no Monday morning...thankyou...6am...a break in the rain...

thunder

metservice now forecasting more possible thunderstorms. will they be isolated or widespread like the one that just happened?

thunder

huge thunder claps and lightning are shaking my house right now in pakuranga. this was soppose to happen on friday but no. uh well early morning thunderstorm cool

lightning

the storms are getting close by the trackers. any need to worry?

severe thunderstorm watch

I know we wont get bad thunderstorms tommorow but metservice has put a severe thunderstorm watch out. do you agree with that? just wondering. as you are always right and metservice are always wrong.

Just keep an eye on the

Just keep an eye on the Sunday forecasts, as we said below there is some chance of a few thunderstorms but they aren't expected to be too widespread over the North Island. Low to moderate risk in Auckland which is similar to MetService.

Cheers

WW

Edit: Also forgot to mention yes agree with MetService some may be severe before dawn - they are a more widespread for the upper North Island (mainly Northland).

Ok thanks

thanks i dont know why metservice thinks they will be severe. the lightning is coming closer looks like it. i agree thats the biggest sea thunderstorm ever. and its close to us too. although we will only get a bit of it not alot. i think so now too. just isolated thunderstorms

squall

hi will there be thunderstorms inauckland overnight and into tommorow cause thats what the media are saying and on your lightning trackers theres been a lot of lightning. i just wanted to know.

Hi there, most of the

Hi there, most of the thunderstorms will track north of NZ but there is certainly some risk of a few thunderstorms around the upper/western side of the North Island on Sunday. Most will be fairly isolated. A low to moderate risk across much of Sunday - keep an eye on the trackers and rain radar on Sunday to see what happens :)

Cheers

WW

thanks

thanks looks very active out there lots of strikes. quite active.

fishing.

why not do tides as well because they go hand in hand with the weather

Hi there - take a look at the

Hi there - take a look at the top of the page, we already do have tide information thanks to MetOcean :) We're also working on a marine page and app too - we hope to have ready some time in 2020.

Have a great weekend!

Today rain

Hi, under your full forecast for today it says rain today 0.51mm, its been raining on and off quite heavy today, more like 51mm over the day, surely more than half a millimeter?

Hi there, we are making

Hi there, we are making improvements to the way we display rainfall in the near future. It's not the best at the moment we admit, just working on the changes now and hope to have something better to display in the next few months.

Otago

I'd love to live in Otago with low humidities, but the wife won't wear it!

Palmerston, OTAGO

When looking for Palmerston it seems to bring up the Palmy North forecast, thats in the rural site. Should it bring up Palmerston OTAGO? Cheers Mark

Hey Mark, hmm you may be the

Hey Mark, hmm you may be the first to stump us with a true bug! Agreed it is not showing up. So, in the meantime, can you please try clicking on this icon (see attached image) with the red arrow - this green icon is basically the "find me" button. If that also doesn't work let us know so we can quickly figure out a work around for you! Another temporary option is try another nearby locations like Bushey or Glenpark.

Cheers :)

thunder

how bad will the thunderstorms be . and what size is the hail gonna be? just wondering.

If any hail it will be very

If any hail it will be very small. When it comes to thunder, it's currently more north of Auckland so (for now anyway) we've removed it from our forecast. It is still possible though, but any thunder in Auckland today looks to be fairly short lived and isolated. We'll be updating our Auckland forecast if this at all changes as we're basically live tracking today's weather.

Cheers

WW
