Top work!

Top work!

Damn

I was hoping MS were going to be right on this one - I need it fine until 1pm!!!

Haha! Welll, fingers crossed

Haha! Welll, fingers crossed it arrives later in the day - most models seem to think the rain won't get going until during Saturday afternoon - will have a much better idea tomorrow evening.

Hi, can you guys help real

Hi, can you guys help real quick?
How's the weather looking for Sat-Sun, 15th and 16th?
Cheers :)

Starts settled, but...

Saturday morning and afternoon should be settled.  Saturday night a quick-hitting Tasman low is expected to push across the top of the country bringing some showers with it.  On Sunday, the northerlies will turn into southwesterlies on the back side of that low which could keep things a bit unsettled into Monday.  Although the best chance for rain will be gone by midday Sunday.

That's the way it looks now.  But that's still a week out, so there will likely need to be some fine-tuning done as we get closer.

Cheers

Weathermap

Strange. Today when I clicked on the weathermap, the Avast anti-virus on my PC warned me that it detected the js.Redirector-ZK trojan horse. The page that triggered the warning was this :

Trojan virus

I've been trying to access your rain map and it keeps coming up on my computer that it has a trojan virus so I can't read it. Not sure if others have had this problem but my anti virus is up to date and current through my work IT dept.

Hi Guest Must be something at

Hi Guest

Must be something at your end, maps work fine and no virus here. Your anti virus software possibly can't recognise the pop up window or maybe it's the add's in the window it doesn't like? There might be a function to ignore it's suggestion which you could use. Best to get in touch with your IT guy at work as it's hard to know the problem from here behind cyber space.

TVNZ rain radar

Hi Philip
TVNZ's weather web page has been showing the same rain radar & isobar map for about six days now - I even rang their online people to tell them it was stuck last Friday but it's still the same. So I've given up.

Is there another web site for local rain radar showing a similar local rain radar to TVNZ's? I quite liked it before they changed it
Cheers

Sure there is. You can head

Sure there is.

You can head along to http://www.weatherzone.co.nz then click on the radar images at the bottom depending on where you are looking for.

http://www.metvuw.com is another place, more specifically http://www.metvuw.com/radar/radar.php?location=nz will take you to the radar page. Only issue is they only do 3 hourly updates on metvuw at present.

Then there is the metservice website for radar which is where they originate from at http://www.metservice.com

Message for Philip

Hi Philip,
Would you be able to tell me the weather around monday this week (10am-2pm)?

Please don't ask me to look at the maps, as I want to know what it it is like, EG Sunny, Showers etc. Any other information is appreciated.

Hi thereAaron here, analyst

Hi there

Aaron here, analyst at WeatherWatch. As guest duely notes it will likely be wet (rain) in the time period you mention with breezy north to northwesterly winds, 20 to 25 kph. Rain eases to showers mid to late afternoon with a westerly wind change.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi Aaron, So no chance of it

Hi Aaron,
So no chance of it being fine? Is it just full on rain? No fine breaks?

Sorry, I'm not real good at weather :(

Thanks

Have just come on duty, so

Have just come on duty, so this is probably a bit late.

Looks like there was rain this morning then it has eased to a few showers late morning as winds changed more northwest, the winds should tilt more to the west during this afternoon. Looks like there are fine breaks out there now and the risk of showers isn't too high now, still a chance of a few passing through but should be mainly dry.

Cheers
Aaron

It will be overcast and wet

It will be overcast and wet with a wind change likely later.

Impressive clouds

Impressive build up of clouds South of New Lynn. Appear to be traveling up the Manukau.

Overnight minimum temps

where are they?

They are temp that says

They are temp that says overnight 'max' which was part of a trial we ran to see how people felt about having an 'average' overnight low (as in winter the temp can vary bu several degrees from suburb to suburb).    However we are scrapping this - was interestnig to trial it though as it challenged us to look at the overnight low in a more generic term rather than the minimum which is almost always in Henderson.

WW

Overnight minimum temps

Ok but max's are not as helpful but both would be splendid, so a suggestion, split it out like your competitors & give us a max & minimum as by N/S/E & W. I'm on the Shore which is usually at least 2 above most overnight minimums forecasts but rely on this info to decide weather keep the woodburner chugging along in the middle of the night so as to avoid the kids using a chilly house as an excuse not to get up & dressed & ready for school (it's hard enough without this impediment!). Also this is useful info for sports training (what shall I wear?) that occurs before sunrise so worth considering.

cheers

Please note the temp we have

Please note the temp we have displayed for the evening and then overnight are the most likely temperature experienced across the city.  So it is still the minimum.  The word max is utterly wrong though and we'll be changing that fairly soon along with some other behind the scenes things we're doing to fix a few bugs.  Basically rebuilding the back of the website to handle our continued significant growth.  This will be sorted soon we hope to make it much clearer - but in the mean time each days high and low are displayed on our site. :)  Thanks for your email!

Cheers

Wind whistling & gusting

Clearing away humidity, wind whistling & gust strongly in New Lynn.

Looking foggy out

Any fog warnings about. Foggy out at present.

Have you noticed

Has anyone noticed that the new low looks almost the same shape as and only slightly bigger than NZ?!

great storm last night

I got woken by the thunder, was lying in bed (obviously unable to get back to sleep) checking facebook on my mobile. Thanks for the fantastic updates and thanks especially for posting the link to the rain radar (I was even able to pinpoint the fact that the wee break in heavy rain would be short lived). Unfortunately my phone didn't seem to support the lightening tracker but it was great having the links available anyway.

It's kind of nice to know, in the middle of the night, when there's a big noisy (?scary) storm going on and you have only sleeping kids to protect you (haha) that there are other people out there thinking and talking about it, it even helped me to feel a little less lonely in the middle of it all!

Thanks Weather Watch!

Venus

Wow, impressive forecasting yesterday re storm. The clear starlit skies were impressive after the storm passed. Venus was extra clear,big and bright.

Thanks very much - and this

Thanks very much - and this is the beauty of WeatherWatch.co.nz - we're as enthusiastic about the weather as our readers/followers so we are always working to ensure our updates are, in fact, up to date as something develops - like last night!  Thanks again for the nice message

Metservice just made it a

Metservice just made it a Moderate risk for storms tonight, and the rain radar is showing a big storm headed for auckland!

Yep we've also raised our

Yep we've also raised our risk to moderate now, and low risk for hail.  Looks like we'll get a few rumbles/flashes. But the problem with Auckland is that it's so big, one end can have thunder/lightning and the other stars/clear skies! (forecasters nightmare!)

PD

Your Auckland Lightning radar

Your Auckland Lightning radar is showing a nice wee storm just off the coast of the kaipara harbour, 133 strikes in the past hour, and it's warranted Metservice to give a low risk of storms tonight, with a moderate risk tomorrow morning, what do you think about this, because I'm not seeing it on the forecast here

Anyway
Keep up your guys awesome work!

Storms went from being just a

Storms went from being just a handful (that we were monitoring but they weren't big enough to warn of) then mid evening they exploded into life (from 100 strikes an hour to 1200!)  prompting both us and MetService to up their risks to moderate - then WW went a step further raising that risk to high by 10pm.  Was a great thunderstorm that's for sure!

PD

Christchurch Fog

Heading to Christchurch early tomorrow morning - is the fog in Christchurch going to be a problem???

Hi thereThere is a resonably

Hi there

There is a resonable possibility that it could cause issues. Keep up to date with your airline and the weather conditions at the time is your best bet.

Cheers
Aaron

Got to be there are 5am so

Got to be there are 5am so will have to rely on the boys with iphones to check it out - or just talk to the airline when we get there. Thanks for your quick reply and lets hope it doesnt!!!!!!!

No worries The cloud is

No worries

The cloud is lowering here as the temperature goes down, I suspect it'll become foggy again very soon so chances just went up for there being delays at the airport here in Chrsitchurch tomorrow morning.

Cheers
Aaron

What's going on with this weather???

It feels like it's been raining for at least 4 weeks.

Crappy weather means crappy traffic.

Wait...traffic is always crap in Auckland anyways.

Crap?

How is this crap for Winter? Even with the rain the sun is out most of the time with light winds and highs of up to 18 degrees? Try Winter in Moscow!

Well yesterday was beautiful.

Well yesterday was beautiful. When can we expect a repeat of that again? It feels like it's been wet for weeks!
