Thanks for your question.

By then the wettest weather should have moved through and long dry spells are expected by nightfall.

Enjoy :)

Wind direction

Wind in New Lynn has been changing direction frequently, flapping from the NE at present. Earlier blue patches gone.

Thanks for your update.

We'll stick with a West/SW breeze as the airport and Whenuapai still have it blowing lightly.

It's variable it seems :)

November

Is it still possible to get fog in November... Family flying from Chch for concert and flying out early Monday 12th November and has exams back in Chch at 9am and worried they could get delayed.

Fog is possible any time of year

It's not as likely in November as it is, say during the winter, but it can still happen.

It is a bit too early to give you a detailed forecast for that time period, however if you check back with us in about a week we can give you a better idea.

Cheers
WW

Waitakere Festival on Sunday 28 October

This is at Henderson Park this weekend and I am very keen to get a clear idea about the likely weather from 1130 to 5pm specifically in West Auckland :)

Metservice says it will be raining but I am hoping they are wrong!

Cheers

Festival

Hi there

At this stage we're picking some rain later in the day and it looks like a dry morning and early to mid afternoon.The timing of the rain or band of showers could be late afternoon/early evening.

Hope the gods smile and there's no moisture for the festival!

Cheers

Auckland Marathon

What do you guys think the weather will be like Sunday morn (6am - 11am) for the Auckland marathon? Will we have strong winds?

Hi there Strong winds no, it

Hi there

Strong winds no, it may become a little breezy from the north or northeast but not strong winds. I'd expect sunny areas and some cloud on Sunday morning with dry weather at this point in time. Some rain develops in the evening about 7pm going by current guidance.

Cheers
Aaron

Spot on with the weather

Thanks and spot on with the weather for the Auckland Marathon yesterday.

Everybody kept telling me that it would be raining for the race and I had to keep telling them that the rain wouldn't come until the evening and that the weather was looking perfect for the race.

Auck marathon

 Thanks very much and hope all went well for you!!

Weather in November

Good afternoon,
I was hoping you would have anyway of finding out what the weather has been like for the past few years on the 30th November?

I am getting married on that date and I would be quite interested in seeing if it is a good time for it?

Many thanks

 Hi there Go to

 Hi there

Go to wunderground.com, type in NZAA into the search box and it will bring up Auckland airport. Then go into it and using the drop down menus you can select different dates etc and you can find out what the weather was like on previous dates.

30th Nov 2011, looked like a day with mostly NE winds between 20 to 25 km/h, a high of 19 with cloudy areas. Dry, no rain.

30th Nov 2010, cloudy areas with a few sunny spells, southwesterly winds building then easing later in the day. Starting at 10 km/h ruffly then rising to 25 km/h at 4pm then easing back to 13 km/h winds at midnight. Looks to have been a mostly dry day also. A high of 19 degrees.

30th Nov 2009, looks like it was a mostly cloudy day with northerly breezes tending more northwest in the afternoon, winds building during the day then easing from evening. A high of 21 with drizzle at times in the morning.

Cheers
Aaron

Where these highs coming

Where these highs coming from...18 in auckland yesterday.lucky if it ever reached 14.

Aucks

 Officially the high was just 15 yesterday and we thought 16 but today should be near 18 despite the cool start.

Cheers,WW

wind direction

New Lynn wind is blowing from NE.

Certainly a blah day in

Certainly a blah day in Auckland today.

Tomorrow

Hi Guys, have heard of possible frosts in Hamilton tomorrow. What are your thoughts? That does seem rather extreme considering it is still raining here at midday

Cheers
Dave

Hamilton

 Hi Dave

Showers are forecast to clear over the Waikato later today but the question is whether they will fully clear with starry skies tonight.

The cold air today is certainly unusual following the front.

There is a low to moderate risk of a light ground frost forming in the morning but it all depends on the timing of the cloud fully dispersing.

It's late in the season if it does occur!

Cheers,WW

That is for sure, my car is

That is for sure, my car is telling me it is 9degrees here at the moment in Hamilton. Winter time again.

Cheers
Dave

How

does the forecast change so much in a few hours? There was NO mention of gale force winds round 2pm when I looked at now it looks like we have them overnight.

Did the wind just come from nowhere? Confused :(

Monday :D

Excellent re Mondays forecast :)

But Is there any chance that tonights rain could hang around until tomorrow afternoon Philip?

Thanks from,
Amber W.

Very possible

Don't expect quite as much rain tomrrow, but some showers in the morning is a real possiblity.  A few rogue afternoon showers can't be ruled either.

Cheers
Howard

thunder North Shore

A bit of thunder just now in Mairangi Bay.

strong gusts and lashing rain

strong gusts and lashing rain in New Lynn after having very light rain earlier.

Wow

these winds sure are hanging on for a long time.....has it been a particuarly wind spring for Auckland this year? And is there any light at the end of the tunnel as to when we will have settled days again? PLEASE tell me we aren't in for a windy summer.....

Hi there - no it's all fairly

Hi there - no it's all fairly normal.  During the RWC last year we had a lot of this weather too.  However Auckland hasn't had a spring wind storm in a few years from memory - so last weekend, followed by this week, has certainly made it feel pretty stormy.  But I recall last year getting emails from all over the country with people saying they were going stir crazy from the constant wind!!

The spring winds usually fade over November, this year it's possible they may continue into December.

Cheers

Phil

People have a short-term

People have a short-term memory

No

some of us don't like Rugby so wouldn't have a clue what the weather was like then!

Water temperature

Do u have water temperatures for auck city centre, world tri chmps on monday, if water too cold swim is cancellled

Hi there, generally speaking

Hi there, generally speaking the sea surface temps around Auckland are 15/16 degs at their warmest.  We're only a month or so out of the coldest time of the year to swim, so even though the days are warming up, the seas don't peak in warmth until about March!  But mid-teens is the current temp.  All the best for Monday.

Cheers

WW

Short sharp showers comment

Thankyou to the person who wrote the comment about the forecasts being accurate regarding short sharp showers. We had a glitch publishing a few comments and it accidently got wiped away. Feel free to post again!

Just wanted to say thanks :)

27 Oct 2012

Hi There,

firstly thanks heaps for providing us with THE MOST ACCURATE forecast. Now it might be a bit too early to ask but I am very curious as we have a big outing planned for 27/10/2012 from 12:00 till about 6:00 pm. How does the weather look around Auckland as off now?

Please advise.

Thanks a lot :)

South westerly Gales again

South westerly Gales again with a stationary high pressure in the tasman and low pressure to the chathams..from the low next week.

Hi, Firstly - thank you very

Hi,

Firstly - thank you very much!  Really appreciate the feedback. :)  At the moment the weather is incredibly chaotic - so even picking 3 days out is a little tricky simply because everything is moving rapidly at the moment in these strong winds,.

However the latest data for the 27th shows a 30% chance of rain (which I'd class as a moderate risk due to it being so far out - if it was short range with 30% chance I'd say that equals a low chance of rain).   Judging by the weather around that date is appears there will be a low pressure system moving by NZ, but it's definitely too early to lock in any forecast.  Keep an eye on our rain Maps - as they go out for 2 weeks and will be a great way for you to gauge conditions.

Cheers - and thanks again for your support

Philip Duncan
