Before you ask a question please ensure you have read our latest news stories, weather video and specially made infographics on our homepage, as we will no longer be answering questions that are already generally answered there, or answered already in our hourly or 10 day forecasts at both WeatherWatch.co.nz or RuralWeather.co.nz

Hi there, with all these cold

Hi there, with all these cold changes and what seems like more in the long range and extra long range models of GFS, and after it has been summery the last month and a half, is it a case of summers over before it begun, or will summer just be very short this year? thanks and merry christmas.

Hi there, we have our

Hi there, we have our December and Summer Season forecast out now: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/new-december-summer-climate-outlook-new-zealand-8-maps

It's already living up to the December forecast for most places. This cold period will linger into next week then eases - but we are likely having cooler changes off and on for the rest of December. The further north you live the warmer it will be.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to you!

Tides

Hi , when checking the Tides i see Onehunga is still not included . This is a very large harbor and would be very useful to many people , Thanks

Hi there, we are improving

Hi there, we are improving our tide info next year and will be including local tides within our local land forecasts (so you don't have to go to another page). Pretty sure Onehunga will be included in that change. Not sure when this will happen but aiming for the first half of 2020.

Kind regards

Christchurch Saturday

Hi team, Any likelihood yet of Sunday's fine weather coming early and temperatures picking up Saturday afternoon? Wedding is on Saturday so fingers are crossed

Hi there Saturday currently

Hi there

Saturday currently has some morning mid level cloud breaking then expect sunny areas and some high cloud, southwesterly winds tend east to northeast in the afternoon. A high somewhere around 16 to 17 degrees.

Hope the day goes well!

Cheers

Hi there, Firstly Happy

Hi there, Firstly Happy Christmas to you all. It seems like 2019 has been a good year for you guys. Just one question before the holidays, despite there being no videos over the summer will you still do a January forecast? Cheers.

Hi there and Merry Christmas

Hi there and Merry Christmas to you too :) We've had one busy year alright and next year looks even bigger and better. :) As for no videos - don't worry, we continue our news content over this time even though we do have fewer daily updates we still tackle the main issues and we'll definitely be issuing a January forecast before New Year's Eve.

Rain forecasts

Looks like none of the forecast showers/ some heavy on Sat/Sun/Mon Dec 14, 15, 16 eventuated, even though percentage chances were high (in the 90% range) across Sunday in particular. Seems we are not getting the windflows right into areas that need it like NW Auckland rural area, i note yours & competitors forecast rain of some description, but nothing doing? Starting to suffer up here. Cheers

Hi there, understand your

Hi there, understand your frustration. These slow set ups where high pressure is very nearby can make for a fine line between showers existing and showers falling apart. If the high grows even just a little in size it can stop these showers from moving in. That's why the percentage is high but you're bang on correct about the direction of these airflows that can stop them arriving. Tuesday is the best chance of rain with low pressure moving in and the lower the pressure the better chances of rain as a general rule - and we have more showers later in the week.  The definition of showers means that they can miss you though - so while our forecast could've been more accurate/helpful over the weekend it was also technically correct. Good luck for some rain in the next 24 hours but overall our Dec and Summer forecast suggests Auckland and Northland will be drier than average.

Cheers
WW

Santa Tracker - Christmas Eve

HI There, Happy Holidays to everyone at WW :) Your latest video states you are on holiday from Friday 20th December. I was wondering if you are having the availablility of the Santa Tracker you have each year on Christmas Eve? For the past few years this has been part of my daughter Christmas eve Tradition, from early evening until bed time. No mention of the tracker being available this year has left me wondering if it will be? Keep up the good work and I wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and Safe and Happy Holidays. G

Hi there, it is coming back

Hi there, it is coming back for sure :) Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

Rain on Friday - Auckland

Hi there, Any chance that the rain scheduled for Auckland on Friday gets delayed? Seems like clear or sunny days before and after. Being the last day of work, was planning a few drinks and BBQ in the later afternoon/evening...

Hi there, we have a fairly

Hi there, we have a fairly fast moving cold front moving in around then. Timing is the hardest part of forecasting when talking days out so the best way to track the highest risk if to click on Friday then click on the Hourly forecasts. Combine that with the rain maps and should work out when the front moves through. To be honest, sometimes exact precise timing of fronts cannot be locked in until the day itself. All the best for Friday! :)

thunder

any thunderstorms for the rain thats coming to auckland? or will it be isolated? or none at all?

Hi there

Yes a chance in the afternoon today of some thunder, not a garantuee, but a chance.

How heavy

Hi there how heavy is the rain for waitakere city Auckland please on Tuesday

G'day there This isn't

G'day there

This isn't exactly an exact science, the average is lookin to be 15 to 20mm across Auckland. But some areas could recieve more some could see less. And depending on where rain tracks exactly there will be variables within that also.

Hopefully you get what you need or less if you don't require it! :)

Nuhaka Weather

I thought Weather Watch prides itself on it's accuracy, but......... Why are you using Murwai (GISBORNE26) for Nuhaka Weather? The places are 40 kms apart with the Wharerata ranges in between. Nuhaka (HAWKESB16) is at Nuhaka. Example Nuhaka's rainfall for last 7 days is 68.31 mm; Mantuke (unavailable) GISBORNE WEST 32.1 for December). Get it more accyrate please

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your complaint although it's a little confusing. We're the only forecaster in NZ to even provide a Nuhaka forecast for 10 days out - and we're the FREE service, not the ones you must tax fund who do NOT provide you with a Nuhaka forecast.

You may have missed our 10 year very public fight with the Government to get data you are already paying for in taxes, but we are blocked from displaying - and is why Niwa and MetService are now under investigation: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/116203356/commerce-commission-investigating-niwa-and-metservice

We're a free service and we do have a local station for Nuhaka. If you're telling us you're seeing a different weather station in the NOW section we can perhaps find a way to remove it for you. Next year we'll be giving people more options to select from a list of local stations. Despite you paying for Niwa and MetService in tax funding it's great to see you relying on our 100% free service.

Kind regards
WW

Tuesday next week looks like there should be some decent rain, and perhaps again on Friday. Use these forecasts here:

thunder

when is there a chance auckland will get a decent thunderstorm?

Hi there May be a chance on

Hi there

May be a chance on Sunday and perhaps Monday coming up. Thunderstorms aren't exatly an exact thing, they are often a risk so never garantueed. Keep an eye on our Auckland forecasts.

Cheers
Aaron

Christmas in the park

Hi was wondering if the rain will hold off for Christmas in the park on Saturday?

Hi thereSomeone else asked

Hi there

Someone else asked the same question today about xmas in the park. I answered with this below:

"Any showers on Saturday will be of an isolated nature, as the day wears on into the evening any showers will likely clear away so will hopefully be a good night! :)"

Saturday Rain Forecast - Henderson - Lake Panorama area

Good Day I have a large Christmas family dinner to set up on our outside deck starting around 3pm and just wondering if I need to go buy gazebos even thought its about a 30% chance on rain? Thanks :)

Hi there This far out I'm not

Hi there

This far out I'm not sure, it's too far into the future to give any specifics.

At this stage perhaps it's looking settled and mainly dry for the North Island, settled for the eastern South Island and maybe showers for the West Coast of the South Island.

If you like use these maps to see how the situation unfolds as we get closer to Christmas:

http://weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Then click on "Rain"

It will probably change day by day as time goes along but 7 days out it may start to have some consistency.

Hope your dinner goes well.

Cheers, Aaron

Southland rain

When will the rain stop in Southland and when will we get some sun and warmer temps? We haven’t had sun in weeks

Hi thereSince the weather is

Hi there

Since the weather is ever changing the best thing I can do to answer your question generally is to point you to our Invercargill forecasts here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Invercargill%2C%2520Southland

Or use our rain maps:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Scroll through those maps and you can see for yourself when areas of rain or showers will be moving through or when it may be dry.

Hope that helps!

Cheers, Aaron

Southland rain

I'm visiting Te Anau and surrounds next week for some hiking and I'm a bit worried about all the rain forecast. Does that area get steady sustained rain usually, or just little showers and drizzle?

Hi there Te Anau can get a

Hi there

Te Anau can get a mixture of weather being close to the mountains where it is, that's for sure. Rain, thunderstorms, drizzle, sunny weather........ The first half of next week may be wet but then it looks to dry out in the second half.

Have a good trip!

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks Aaron!

Thanks Aaron!

Wind

Hi, why does the "Now in Christchurch" column always say there's 0 km/h wind? We all know that is never the case in Christchurch so there must be an error that should be corrected.
