Comments

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.

Cheers

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.

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

thunder

I love it when thunderstorms are in the forecast. will it be a bad one?

Subtropical Noreasters in Auckland

Sick of the noreasters already, tropical humid rain, 16 deg nights for the last 2 nights and its only September. Doesn't bode well for summer for us humidity haters in the north. Aug/Sept has certainly made up for the dryish previous 7 months - 210mm of rain at Muriwai in the past month...

I agree! I hate the humid Nor

I agree! I hate the humid Nor anything! it's been a really disappointing winter, not very cold at all.

Come to Otago. Hardly any

Come to Otago. Hardly any humidity and fireplaces & heatpumps are the norm. Haha

Sounds good!

forecast

you say showers or drizzly patches metservice says showers possibly heavy and thundery. i dont know who to believe.

Only one can be right. We

Only one can be right. :) Not sure where you are precisely but no thunderstorms in the upper North Island in the past hour and none seem to be forming at this stage.

Cheers

I see tommorow

tommorow there is a better risk of thunser cool. i know it may or may not happen. but i will keep a look out.

Hi there

Please feel free to use these maps, they will keep you updated with the latest information as to whether high pressure is due for the North Island coming up :)

Suffice to say there doesn't look to be much high pressure about for the first half of September.

Hi there

It's nothing out of the ordinary but is a degree or so above normal - thanks to the sub-tropical flow :)

thunderstorms

metservice has us in the moderate risk tommorow for thunderstorms, will there be some? juat ASKING.

A chance definitely exisits,

A chance definitely exisits, mainly in the afternoon. It's a really hit and miss situation so you may or may not. Apologies we can't be any more exact.

WW

oh yep thanks

thanks theres a lot of lightning at northland at the moment. so . and trees have blown down from the wind.

Rotorua

Thinking of popping down to Rotorua on Saturday for some mountain biking - is there likely to be much rain on Friday and Saturday do you think?

Hi there Looks showery on

Hi there

Looks showery on Friday, dry spells may start to increase from late afternoon on Friday. Saturday looks drier, a mix of sun and cloud with southwesterly winds, later in the evening showers or some rain develops.

Keep up to date here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Rotorua

You got the right prediction bang on. Many thanks had a great time.

Data included in the forecast

Hi there, I've always admired the accuracy of your forecast, but find myself always having to look at Metservice afterwards. This is because while it is one thing to know the probability of rain at any given time of day, it is equally important to know how much of it is likely. E.g. 90% probability of 0.2mm precipitation is far less significant for being outdoors than a 50% chance of a 6mm downpour! Is this something you can/are likely to include in your forecasts? Cheers

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the comment and yes we are working towards having more rainfall data appear in our forecasts. You may like our new website: www.RuralWeather.co.nz which has fantastic visual rainfall graphs and hourly amounts too. We hope to add more bells and whistles in 2020 :)

Cheers

Thanks for the reponse

Nice one, thank you. Even just a qualitative description of how much rain is to be expected will be a great start. Cheers.

SSW event

I keep hearing the SSW event above Antarctica being referred to as the "Beast from the East". Do you know why that name is used for it? Surely any impact on our weather will be from the South or West? Is it just another example of our media using terminology from overseas events that isn't really relevant to us?

Hi there, yes good question!

Hi there, yes good question! Newshub has just published this story with our views on it - you'll find it interesting I think, definitely Niwa are seeking click bait with that "beast from the east" nonsense:  www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/08/sudden-stratospheric-warming-forecaster-rubbishes-predictions-nz-will-be-hit-by-polar-blast.html

Low pressure system

Hi there, I wonder how much rain we will get from the low pressure system next week Wednesday

This map here

This map here http://wxmaps.org/pix/prec7 (the one at the bottom) suggests most of the North Island will have average rainfall for the next 10 days but parts of the east coast, Coromandel / Waikato / southern Auckland and perhaps northern Northland will be just over average.

So there you go..... As for actual specifics that depends exactly where you are.

Hope the above helps.

springtime in Dunedin

Hi WW team Would you have a rough guess on when the nighttime lows in Dunedin will reach at least a consistant 10?? I'm a bit over single digit lows. Even a rough guess from WW is more accurate than where our taxes go to. Cheers Indy

Hi Indy, great question and

Hi Indy, great question and you have a little longer to go just yet. We are seeing overnight lows creep up in Dunedin just a little bit, bit 7 degrees looks fairly normal in the week ahead, but cooler winds end of next week and next weekend will likely drop them back down into the lower single digits. Typically the windier westerlies later in September tend to push your lows into double digits more often. Good luck!

Cheers

Phil D

By the way, you see see temperature trends, including the 'feels like' temperatures, for Dunedin for the next 10 days here in our new weather data page: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/rural/Dunedin

Hi there Kieng, we're

Hi there Kieng, we're basically heading into that perfect windy season right now! This weekend won't be so good though with a lot of high pressure - same with early next week. But later next week, next weekend and likely the several weeks following should see a number of windy days. Have fun!

Good morning, we've placed a block on this site so hopefully a nearby one is showing up for you now (or soon). If not, please do let us know. Also, a side note, we're also aware of a glitch with the times of updating in some weather station at the moment and IBM are already working on this.

Thanks for this. On our

Thanks for this. On our observations page we can see it's missing, but just wondering if the website is showing you a specific Station ID that we can search deeper into?

Thanks a lot for letting us know - with hundreds of live stations across NZ there is always one that is giving us some work to sort - the positive is that we often have a nearby one we can switch to :)
