high pressure

next week you say high pressure sets in when your forecaast for thurday 22nd,friday23rd and saturday24th has thunder forecast. so the high pressure wont be around much. it will be gone and another low sets in?

Hi there, yes correct the

Hi there, yes correct the high that comes in next week doesn't last long. We get a southerly towards the end of next week then it may start to ease again by next weekend. Won't be able to lock in until Monday.

Warm Lambs

Love that photo, thank you for sharing it.

When will it stop raining in Auckland?

When will it stop raining in Auckland? Seems like the whole of August is just wet

Feel free to check out our

Feel free to check out our Auckland forecasts, we update them every day. Might give some insight into what is happening for Auckland re rain or dry weather coming up.

Auckland being where it is can often get rain or showers due to nothing blocking weather coming in from the west where most of out weather comes from. The east coast of NZ is protected by mountains to the west so naturally anyone out east can experience nice sunny / dry days more often but often nights are colder.

Cheers
Aaron

Out east its milder lol

Aaron I live at the moutain range between opotiki and gisborne 632 metres above sea level and its bleak, has been for 4 months, not much rain just lots of cold draughty wind. Just wish the wind would stop. Theres been enough sun to operate my solar panels. Just the wind Brrrr mostly from the northwest. With this current southerly gisbornes finally getting a dose of winter, everyones been wearing summer clothes there. And its only 6 weeks till daylight savings. Matawai, Matawai Chris.

Sunday/Monday on Ruapehu

Hey Philip and team, Whats your take on what the weather will be like up Ruapehu this weekend? Everywhere else is all over place as to if it'll be good or poor!

G'day there Saturday looks

G'day there

Saturday looks cloudy, the odd shower then rain from late afternoon, easing overnight. Snow to 800m in the evening then lowering to 500m overnight. Brisk to strong northwesterly winds.

Sunday morning sees showers and snow flurries to 500m clear then afternoon sunny spells, winds fresh from the southeast.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Hey there

Hey team is there any chance of any snow to sea level in Christchurch

The air does get pretty cold

The air does get pretty cold from Saturday afternoon but the rate of precipitation falls quite a lot also as that really cold air arrives. Meaning as the cold air arrives it's just a shower or two at times.

I would say a chance of a flurry to sea level (10 to 20% chance) but mostly you are going to be looking at a dusting on the top of the Port Hills once this system passes through after the weekend. So typical cold winter stuff really.

Cheers
Aaron

New Rural Website

Hello Phillip and Team I checked out your new rural website and I also got a 404 Unknown Gateway error. The website that you get routed to is not the RuralWeather one as indicated to click on but www.weatherwatch.co.nz/rural. Hello 404 error. As with any new website, there are alwsys bugs. Perhaps there are some in the link routing. Just a thought. Anyway, excitement over a new and awesome WW site. You all do an amazing job. Hopefully soon, your hard work, and our supporting you, will spell the finale' to the "capitalist" 'other guys'. Cheers and Sorry So Long of a post. A.C. & The Cat PS: Posted here coz I don't like having to give my email address. Cutting back on that carbon Internet footprint dontcha know.

Saturday Rain Rotorua

Hi there, I've got an outdoor party planned for this Saturday in Rotorua and the weather at this stage looks very very wet. It is planned for 11am-2pm, are you able to give me any hope that this Saturday (17th) could be dry between those times?

Hi there One model I'm seeing

Hi there

One model I'm seeing shows conditions are looking mostly cloudy and at this stage mainly dry, late afternoon / evening a few showers move in from the west. Winds from the northwest.

Another model I'm seeing indicates rain or showers for much of the day, may need a few more days yet for this information to solidify and something more certain to come through for me to tell you.

Come back and ask in a day or two if you like or simply search "Rotorua" in the search function on the home page, that should tell you what you need to know :)

Cheers
Aaron

Lightening

What do the different colours on the lightening strike map mean?

Hi there, it's to do with the

Hi there, it's to do with the timing. It groups them into time zones so you can track the movement and if the thunderstorms are increasing or decreasing, so it's a time line basically. There is a key on the map which should show the times.

Kind regards

more thunder?

when will the thunderstorms end its starting to get scary. there is reports of a possible tornado somewhere in auckland.

Hi there, we have more

Hi there, we have more thunderstorms and squalls (sudden gusty weather) coming today. Just like yesteday they will be a bit hit and miss. The risk finally eases later today and by tomorrow we should be done with them.

Cheers

Thunder & Lightning

New Lynn had a good lot of lightning & thunder as you forecast. Thunder still lingering 20:31pm Temperature drop noticed!

There is a chance today of a

There is a chance today of a few more but thunderstorms most of the time are a 50 / 50 thing, so you might get something else but equally you may not.

For the western North Island, yes there is a chance. May or may not get something.

Barometric Pressure

Hi, out of interest, what is the average barometric pressure in New Plymouth, what is considered low and high pressure and how does low pressure affect the weather.. and people? Thanks!

Hi there Not sure on the

Hi there

Not sure on the average for New Plymouth sorry, woud be a metservice or niwa question as they hold stats.

With a low winds rotate clockwise, in a high winds rotate anti clockwise. For information on lows please refer here:

Snow in Dunedin tonight?

Hello Is very cold and rain will be Snow tonight? big one to the sea level? Cheers Carolyn Dunedin

Hi there Carolyn, no at this

Hi there Carolyn, no at this stage we expect temperatures to gradually lift overnight. Here's the latest temperature map for you. Stay warm!

Cheers

WW

thanks WW

Maybe next year

auckland thunder

that was a full on squally thunderstorm. will we get anymore thunderstorms in auckland? or is that it till the next time we get a large low?

Hi there, the thunderstorm is

Hi there, the thunderstorm is due to the large low now deepening in the Tasman Sea. We may have another one overnight, but at the moment it's looking a bit quiet out there. Keep an eye on the live lightning trackers we have on our website and app, they are both updated every 60 seconds.

Thunder storms

Hi any thunderstorms for auckland over the weekend and how severe will it get

Good morning, there are some

Good morning, there are some thunderstorm risks along the entire western coastline of the North Island this weekend, mostly later today and across Sunday. They will be scattered / isolated, or "hit and miss", so a bit hard to lock one in for where you live. Today's risk is higher the further south you go. Tomorrow it's generally along the western coastline from Taranaki to Northland. We have some maps indicating the general risk areas in the lead story on our site right now.

Cheers

WW

Snow

Will their be snow n Dunedin city today to settle

Good morning, it's borderline

Good morning, it's borderline for snow in Dunedin today but it's just slightly too warm at the moment. It's more likely above 200 metres and if any flurries go lower it's unlikely to settle. Also, the snow level should lift to 300m this evening.

Cheers

WW

Weather expected for 4 hour drive

Hi, we are heading to Geraldine from Queenstown tomorrow, heading off around 9-10am. Trying to work out the weather from here along Lindus Pass and past lakes..., will there be any snow and is it raining the whole way? Just trying to assess the best and safest route to take. Thanks!

Hi there, that's quite a

Hi there, that's quite a tough question to answer because snow and rain will be in various elevations along that route. Generally speaking yes you may encounter snow, as Queenstown has snow in the forecast today and so too does Otago down to about 200m for a time. Keep up to date with NZTA for highway conditions.

Cheers and safe travels

Wrong weather station for Hawea Flat

The station you get info from for Hawea Flat - Observed at 7:50pm from: The Castle (ITKIHAWE3). This Station is actually for Ararata Road, Hawera.

Hi there thank you for that.

Hi there thank you for that. We'll see what we can do about that. We're hoping to improve our observations network in 2020. Thanks for this (great getting the Station ID as we can then easily identify it).

Kind regards

forecast

metservice says tommorow could be thundery while you guys say its patchy rain? will there be thunder? or just showers?

Hi there, we have a slow area

Hi there, we have a slow area of patchy rain which is now clearing away with a few showers behind it. We've just updated Saturday and it's a drier morning with showers or patchy rain developing later. There may be some heavy downpours later and looks like a low to moderate chance of an isolated thunderstorm or two later. We'll be closely watching the Auckland weather on Saturday.

Cheers

Forecasts

Hi Philip and the team I still think you guys are the most reliable, consistent weather reporters. Keep up the great work, you all do an awesome job. I plan my weeks and weekends around your forecasts and I have never been disappointed. Have a great weekend :) JS

Hi JS, what a really lovely

Hi JS, what a really lovely message to get, especially after the negative press we received due to our Government competitors. Thanks heaps - we work really hard to be as accurate as possible, always room for improvement but messages like yours make it all worth while. Thanks so much, have a really lovely weekend.

Cheers

Bad Weather

Obviously Duncan was right in the first place. Metservice predictions are showing deteriotaing weather each day. There is a high chance of heavy snow at 400m showing on their outlook. Yesterday it was 500m moderate chance for the same area. What will it be tomorrow and then on Sunday and Monday? - 100m lol. Stacy

auckland thunder

hi when is the next chance auckland is getting thunder. I was woken by some lightning and thunder on monday. but when will we get a good thunderstorm?

Oh wow that's the million

Oh wow that's the million dollar question!! :) We may see some around on Sunday PM and Monday - otherwise nothing really locked in just yet. Auckland gets better chances of thunder in spring and late summer usually (October and February are often a couple of good months).

Cheers

WW

Thanks

thanks alot. you guys are the best. better than the forecasters of niwa that thinks they know everything

Snow for wanaka/queenstown

Are we likely to get any decent amounts of snow on the hills and mountains in Wanaka and Queenstown with this latest low coming? Or will it be more centred for the Canterbury area? Many thanks.

Hi there, no we see some snow

Hi there, no we see some snow for Wanaka and Q-town too, from Saturday to Tuesday are the main chances for slow flurries into those main centres. See our hourly 10 day forecasts for more for Queenstown and Wanaka (we have EVERY small part of NZ covered -  tried testing us!!)

Severe low pressure

Thanks for the work you do I find your forecasts pretty spot on.Have heard about this deep low in the Southern Ocean,me and the boys at work started wondering what would happen if a low like that made a direct hit on NZ.Would it be like the big snow in the early 90's (I'm in Christchurch) or not so bad or maybe worse.Has a low that deep hit us before?Just trying to clarify the classic smoko debate amongst us wannabe weather forecasters.Once again thanks for the forecasts.
