Hi there No snow or sleet

Hi there

No snow or sleet forecast for Westport, could be tiny bits of hail perhaps?

Cheers
Aaron

Brrrrr.....again

Hi WW Team In regards to the next cold front coming through, when you say Next Week, is that the week coming or the week from the 9th to the 15th. Also, will we get some snow in Dunedin? Thank you for the more accurate forecasts than the Show Ponies. Lol A.C.

Hi there That story is in

Hi there

That story is in reference to a low crossing the country this coming week.

Dunedin itself won't get any snow, could be a dusting on the top of surrounding hills perhaps Tuesday morning (tomorrow morning) then it will quickly clear.

Thanks for the kind words! :)

WW

Will Wednesday be severe for

Will Wednesday be severe for Auckland, what kind of weather are we expecting?

Heavy rain and possible

Heavy rain and possible thunderstorms will be the thing to watch at this stage, timings will have to be fine tuned as we get closer to Wednesday.

WW

Snow in Dunedin

Will there be snowy weather in Dunedin

Hi there, no as our forecast

Hi there, no as our forecast says snow is possible to 300m - so potentially a flurry, or sleet, in Dunedin overnight in the hilltop suburbs especially, but nothing esignificant is expected in the city with the overnight low being too mild, around 4 or 5 degrees. Could be a few snow showers to lower levels if the winds are gusty enough.

Cheers

WW

We got sleety, icy, rain in

We got sleety, icy, rain in the hills above Dunedin central. Brrrrr. Hunker in and stay warm. Soup & tea.

Will there be any severe

Will there be any severe weather in CHCH during the next week?

Hi there, yes there may be.

Hi there, yes there may be. We'll have more details on Sunday. Keep an eye on our detailed Christchurch forecasts for more details, including hourly wind speeds and rain confidence for the next 10 days specific to where you are.

Thanks for that, you were dead right! Much appreciated, have changed now.

Many thanks

thunderstorm

I enjoyed a lightning and thunderstorm tonight. beauty lightning show in auckland. will there be more coming up?

Was quite the show! Looking

Was quite the show! Looking quieter now but more isolated thunderstorms, squalls and hail showers are likely over the next 12 to 24 hours. Hit and miss around NZ so a bit tricky to say if we'll get a repeat or not.

Cheers

WW

squalls

hi will the squalls cause damage.

For Auckland? Probably not,

For Auckland? Probably not, showers just will be a bit squally as westerlies strengthen later this evening.

You should be ok

Power cuts

Hi does auckland need to worry about any power cuts tonight friday due to strong winds

Hi there, we may have a

Hi there, we may have a couple of isolated power cuts overnight or on Saturday (isolated due to various squally showers that produce winds strong enough moving through here and there). Hopefuly nothing too problematic but yes some risk next 24 hours. Another risk again mid next week and also next Friday.

Cheers
WW

Waiouru snow

How bad is the snow going to be on the weekend/ next week for the soldiers training??

Good evening and thanks for

Good evening and thanks for the great (unique) question! We don't want to prejudge the NZ Army but our guess is they will be tough enough to handle this weekend :)  It does look cold though, especially Saturday. Keep an eye on our 10 day Waiouru forecast, as it includes hourly chance of Rain and Snow. Anything above 40% when it comes to snow indicates it may be heavy. Sunday it dries up and Monday things warm back up again.

Cheers

WW

Thanks so much for the great

Thanks so much for the great info

What’s next weds looking like for Auckland?

Hi there Is looking a bit

Hi there

Is looking a bit wet, depending on the timing of a few fronts moving through there may also be some sun and a dry period perhaps. Winds from the northwest, it's not looking cold with temperatures in the high teens.

Hope that helps.

Central Plateau Snow

Hi there, will it snow at Whakapapa village this weekend? If so, how much and will it still be on the ground on Monday? Will the central plateau roads be affected by snow?

Hi there, we are working on

Hi there, we are working on displaying a new Snow and Ski Page but for now we do think they will get snow in the village but it's borderline with National Park and Ohakune looking a little too warm for snow to settle, although in Wairouru and the Desert Road it's a snow/rain mix - potentially SH1 the Desert Road may be impacted by snow for a time - but shouldn't be a major snow dump there. For Whakapapa Village it's higher elevation so should get snow.

The roads look to be open on Monday but the snow level is a little tricker to lock in specifically. Check Ruapehu webcams on Sunday - by then the snow will have eased and you'll have a clear view of where it has settled. It warms up by over 5 degrees more on Monday so snow will melt fast at the lower levels.

Cheers

WW

thunder

why am i seeing the word thunder alot. now.

Hi there, you're seeing it

Hi there, you're seeing it pop up a lot at the moment due to an incoming surge of polar air mixing with the much warmer than normal conditions around the country. Warm air and cold air colliding often makes thunderstorms so we expect a few over the next few days (mostly western NZ) and possibly again next week when we get a couple more big lows with warm and cold air mixing.

Cheers :)

Snow

Hi there, I am just checking back to see if the forecast for snow levels/amounts on the lindis pass for the 1st is more locked in yet. Thanks, Ben

G'day there Looks to be 1 to

G'day there

Looks to be 1 to 3cm possible on Lindis Pass for the 1st. An outside chance of 3 to 5cm but due to snow melt and snow showers likely being broken not much will accumulate if much at all. It's more just a skiff / dusting of snow for Lindis Pass. So yes some perhaps but not alot.

Safe travels!

Cheers
Aaron

Awesome thanks very much for

Awesome thanks very much for the great work guys!

Dunedin weather queens birthday weekend

Hi, I am flying to Dunedin for the long weekend and am wondering what sort of weather I should prepare for. I am also planning to do some outdoor activities and would like to know which are the best days for that. Thanks.

Hi there, Saturday looks

Hi there, Saturday looks wintry with strong winds and some rain (snow on the ranges too). Sunday dries out but will still be a little windy and cool. Monday will be cloudier with perhaps some patchy rain developing. Keep an eye on our 10 day forecast for Dunedin which includes HOURLY forecasts for all 10 days, helping you work out % of rain and wind speeds/direction.

Have a great long weekend,
Cheers
WW

thunderstorm

what time on tuesday will auckland get the thunderstorms? will there be tornadoes possible just wanted to know. i also see that we have lots of rain as winter is arriving

Hi there As below the best I

Hi there

As below the best I can say is early to mid afternoon at this stage.

Perhaps the low risk of a tornado, there is plenty of shear in the atmosphere but there is a chance the highest amount of instability may slip away to the east.

Cheers
Aaron

Thunder storms

Hi any thunder storms over west Auckland on Tuesday thank you

Hi there Early to mid

Hi there

Early to mid afternoon yes there does appear to be a risk as northerlies change northwest.

Cloud status on Thursday May 30th

Hi There. I have a 9 AM domestic flight from Christchurch to Auckland and then an international flight from Auckland to San Francisco. Because of low clouds on Saturday (May 25th) morning, all the morning flights from Christchurch are cancelled. I would like to find out the fog status on Thursday to see if it going to be similar to how it was on Saturday? Any chance you could help me if the weather will be okay for flights to take off on Thursday early morning? Please advise.

Fog isn't looking very likely

Fog isn't looking very likely then, you should be fine :)
