You will get thunder in

You will get thunder in Auckland again definitely, when exactly I'm not sure, hopefully before the end of the year for you! :)

WW

thanks

thanks alot. i enjoy thunderstorms and hate that sometimes when they forecast they dont happen : (

sunshine

our community church here in Manukau city has our annual free party as a alternative to goblins and witches to keep children from the trick and treat Its on the last day of October it has been 6 years now but the big question is will it be rain free we have seen everything pouring rain thunder storms can you give us a heads up its so exciting to see kids smiles and completely safe Thanks and we really appreciate your great friendly service Paul Manuku

G'day there Last day of

G'day there

Last day of October, that is a 11 days away now so anything I say now may not exactly work out by the time the 31st comes around.

Current models are showing a tropical low near by but a southeasterly airflow over Auckland. There could be some high cloud and the risk of a shower but mainly dry conditions, but depending on the movement of this low perhaps it may be raining. Perhaps best to come and ask 5 to 7 days out?

Hope your party goes well either way.

Thanks for the kind words :)

Better weather

Hi I live in Auckland and just wondered if you have any idea when if ever we are going to get some decent weather for longer than 4 hours at a time. I know it's Spring BUT I am well and truly over the wind, rain and cloudy days. Please give me some good news. Thanks heaps

Hi there, we don't really

Hi there, we don't really have a lot of good weather coming up with a fair amount of cloudy of windy days. May not be overly wet though so there's one positive for you :) Hopefully November will see a quick improvement. We're entering a phase of westerly quarter winds now. Hopefully Sunday will be a little nicer than Saturday was though :)

Cheers

Nelson

Hi - is metservice hyping up the winds for Nelson on Friday?

Hi there, winds do ramp up

Hi there, winds do ramp up above gale force in parts of Nelson region on Friday - it may or may not be in the city itself but there are strong winds surrounding/affecting exposed parts of the region on Friday.

Cheers

WW

Hi there, with the next 2

Hi there, with the next 2 weeks looking quite dreary, is November looking any better?

Hi there, quite often in

Hi there, quite often in November the winds start to ease back (especially by the middle of the month) and we get longer, drier, periods of weather. November can be unsettled too, but usually October has more wintry hints while November has more summer-like hints. :)

120 wind gusts

The forecast last night for auckland was winds gusting 120km but nothing really happened?

Kai Iwi lakes

Hi there, Just wondering if you could give me forecast at the Kai Iwi lakes on the weekend of the 26th of October ? We're planning a camping trip and wondering if the weather will hold up. Cheers :) Liz

Kai Iwi weather

Always pays to have a Plan B if NZ weather is a factor.

Gday there That's 11 to 13

Gday there

That's 11 to 13 days away and with spring upon us that means changeable conditions. So anything I say now will likely change meaning it becomes a bit irrelevant.

In saying that current models look to show a high parked to the north and a westerly airflow over the upper North Island then. Perhaps a mix of sun and cloud with the low risk of the odd shower, later on Sunday has a higher risk of precipitation with a possible front closing in.

Hope your trip goes well either way.

WW

Thanks a bunch. I'll keep my

Thanks a bunch. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope the weather gods oblige !

Location

How to I change my automactic location?

Hi there, if you have cookies

Hi there, if you have cookies enabled your browser should remember the last location you selected when you click the down arrow to the left of the location name in the main forecast bar (see image below), however some people are reporting a bug with this and it later often defaulting to 'Auckland'. We are significantly upgrading things behind the scenes right now and we aim to have this bug properly fixed by December. In the meantime if it's still not working you could simply select your location and then bookmark that webpage for easy future reference.

Cheers,

Wind in Auckland overnight Monday

Hey team WW, I see the official government forecasters have a weather warning for 120km winds across Auckland overnight Monday but it looks like you don't think it will be so bad... what's the latest?

Hi there, we think gusts over

Hi there, we think gusts over 100km/h are possible on Monday night in exposed areas but the latest data shows the winds may tilt more SE towards evening and sometimes the Coromandel Peninsula ranges can 'soften the blow' for parts of Auckland in that set up. We'll provide a news and video update tomorrow morning on the set up too.

Cheers

Station ID

Hi, Cambridge (CAMB 18) still showing minus zero, where do I find the station ID to send to you?

Hi there, we have the ID now

Hi there, we have the ID now and we'll try to sort this today. Seems to be a bug in the system.

Thanks for letting us know :)

So much for accurate forecasts!

Early morning cloud, then sunny. 0% chance of rain! I guess the heavy cloud and rain we've got here in Mt. Roskill is a figment of my imagination. Since the tie-up with that bloody American company and their so-called 'super' computer, Weatherwatch's accuracy has taken a nosedive.

Hi there, actually the hourly

Hi there, actually the hourly chance of rain from IBM did show a chance of rain - and our video yesterday mentioned some areas may have cloud and a few showers remaining in the upper North Island. But yes today's forecast for much of the upper North Island could have been better, especially Auckland and Tauranga.  The super computer we use forecast the showers, they were just more widespread than we thought. Thanks for using our entirely free service when you tax fund both MetService and Niwa forecasts. We're always working to be more accurate.

Cheers

Severe weather

Hi there is there going to be any severe weather on Monday/Tuesday for auckland

Temperature...

Hi. 'Now in Whangarei' temperatures have been amusing lately - right now it's showing -37, sometimes as warm as 60 Not a biggy, 'Next 24 hours' is always accurate

Not showing correct temperature for Cambridge

Hi, minus zero showing from CAMBR 18.

Good morning, ouch it's

Good morning, ouch it's definitely not that cold today in Cambridge! :) We've blocked the station for now, but please let us know if it's still showing up. (If so, please ensure you send us the precise Station ID so we can easily locate it - we hope we've found the culprit here!)

Cheers
WW

Great service

I used metservice for years and always found looking out the window far more reliable. I now use weatherwatch and it's far better than metservice has ever been. Met service don't have anywhere near the amount of towns on their site. Rangioras weather is not the same as chch city as they seem to think it is. Thanks for a great job.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the support! We've worked very hard to provide many more NZ forecast locations (and to ensure they are accurate). We have over 2000 forecast locations, compared to around just 100 with BOTH Government forecasters (we all tax fund) combined. 

Cheers
WW

Hi from rural Tauranga!

Hi! WW gives the most accurate and reliable forecasting for us here. Much better than the Met. Your videos are also very easily understood. Thanks for all your efforts!

Thank you very much, very

Thank you very much, very kind. We definitely could've done a bit better with Tauranga today, some surprise showers redeveloped which wasn't really in our thinking although it also partially was - these slow set ups can be quite tricky sometimes.  Thanks for the support, means a lot!

Cheers

wrong again and again

Truly Phil I really think a change of vocation is needed. Like Metservice your Christchurch forecasts are so wrong these days I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Alas I still choose the former. Your hourly breakdown and your actual forecasts contradict themselves very frequently. Your little box showing current conditions here is so irrelevant and wrong that it should be gone. Period. At least Metservice update theirs every 10 mins and therefore is mostly accurate. Almost daily I could write this sort of email but shall we just look at today the 9th. Every morning about 6.30 to 7 I check Weatherwatch and Met.Today you both insist, and still are, based on your respective 1 and 2 hr condition forecasts, that we will get a mix of winds from the NW, NNW,,N,NE and a high of 21 or 22. It is now almost noon. It is 15 degrees here on the western fringes. The wind has been SW and quite chilly ever since 6am. It is now S moving further away from your NW you and Met. still insist is here. Some time ago you told us about new link ups and much more reliable forecasts. Really? Maybe forget about happenings in Australia,Japan, USA etc. and concentrate more on closer to home huh? To finish on a little more positive note, overall generally you are a bit more reliable than Met. but only a tad.

Wrong again and again ...

Hmmm, I really think someone likes to complain about anything and everything (even better when it's completely unfounded!)

Some people.

You can please most people most of the time but some people are just never possible to please. Darran, Very Far North.

Got to 21 degrees today in

Got to 21 degrees today in Chch, as forecast :)

Context is everything.

Weather watch has been spot on for me (north-east area) for the past few days so perhaps you're forgetting to take the forecast in context with your location.

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your very detailed complaint. We are a free service but you tax fund MetService - hopefully you've told them the same thing or it would be quite strange to complain about the free more accurate service rather than the one you pay for that you admit isn't quite as reliable. We'll strive to do better. :)

Cheers
Phil.

wrong again and again

Hi Phil. Thanks for reply. Yes, I did have a go at Metservice. At least you had the courtesy to reply, they did not. My "very detailed complaint" was because wind direction is very important for the enjoyment of our property and quality of life for various reasons yet this is the one thing I find you have the most trouble getting right. That day amazed me because the winds were from the south almost all day but you never mentioned any southerly quarter winds, only NW thru to NE. I mentioned the little box titled "now" (in Christchurch) For example just 30 mins ago it had NE at 1km/h. Reality: SW 6-9 km/h. This occurs all the time, it is rarely right. Today your main forecast states wind SSE15 the hourly breakdown only shows SSE from late afternoon and wind speeds never exceeding 9km/h. We are not talking big issues here but they are strange ongoing contradictions. A guest re. my original complaint reminded me that it did hit 21 degrees here that day. True. It happened for a short while late afternoon so I have to concede that theoretically Phil you got that right. I believe you do quite well and strive to do so despite no taxpayer dollars. Cheers.

Hi there, appreciate the

Hi there, appreciate the response. When you're dealing with winds that light in a coastal city they can be variable. We are looking at possibly even removing wind direction from below a certain speed simply because it can swing around all over the place. Any of our coastal cities can have opposing light winds due to the terrain and the nature of sea breezes and daytime heating/night time cooling. When winds are stronger, direction is much easier to set. Below 7km/h(walking speed) if you watch a wind vane it will sometimes spin 360 based on fluctuations. Unless you're paying a forecaster to be specific to your house/property you'll never get 100% satisfaction from a public forecast and even then it gets tricky at such a fine level.

Cheers
Phil and the team

Second response to wrong again and again

Phil thanks once more for your reply. You are so right re. light winds. Since early Sept there have been so many days in CHC where the winds have gone through most or all of the compass in a day, sometimes beyond, it has been rather difficult but unusual. I have childhood memories of lots of wind in Sept/Oct. normally NW or W. Growing up in Ashburton!! Regarding tax dollar funding like Metservice, not being silly or facetious here, but would that really make much difference to you as regards accuracy of forecasts. After all forecasts from Metservice are criticised from Whangarei to Invercargill and they can't even answer emails!! It cannot be easy forecasting for a couple of islands stuck in the roaring 40s in a vast ocean but with so much technology available surely we could expect better? Actually the UK is little better. My sister in law lives in South England and they bemoan the forecasts being wrong frequently and that is from their equivalent of our Metservice. There are many forecasters there, of course, and most attempt long range ie the coming winter or summer but they never get it right not even close. The don't give up but why anyone takes those forecasts seriously I cannot fathom. Ken Ring often said weather forecasting is an inexact science. Was this Ken seeking a cop-out or was he correct? Regards
