Thank you. But as general

Thank you. But as general rule, when you look on any weather site that give a high and low for a certain date, (and assuming that the low is to take place overnight), does it relate to the hours between midnight and dawn on that date OR the hours after sunset to dawn the next day?

Cheers.

What's the weather like at

What's the weather like at Eden park tomorrow evening?

Eden Park

Looks like a mostly dry and cool night with temperatures at kick off time between 11 and 13 degrees.There's still a chance of a shower or two with a sou' west windso wrap up warm. Enjoy the game and go the ABs!

Hamilton weather this coming weekend

Hi there

great site and good Auckland forecasts. But this weekend we're off to cambridge for some school cycling. Your forecast for hamilton shows a fine weekend, but the NZ met service forecast for saturday shows rain and then showers? Your hamilton site says you are making improvements to the forecasting? what are your thoughts? should we go with the met service forecast?

I wasn't all that impressed

I wasn't all that impressed with the rain chance for Saturday in Hamilton.  However, I think this has changed a bit.  I don't think it will be as quite rainy as MetService's forecast seems to indicate.  But, I think my dry forecast is not going to pan out.

The way it looks now, the most likely time to get wet tomorrow will be in the late morning and early afternoon.  Otherwise, just a few light showers are possible.

Cheers, Howard

Today's temperature in Auckland

Hi there, we live at Te Atatu Peninsula and the temperature here feels around 19 to 20, definitely not 15.

Cold out West

I am pretty sure the rain which has been falling this morning in West Auckland is actually snow, but seem it isn't cold enough it is turning to rain before it gets to ground level....As the Wife left, I watched a bit in the car headlights & it looked like snow and even the rain felt softer than usual...or am I just dreaming and way off on my thinking : )

Miserable bland looking

Roughly

what time do you think the thunderstorms will hit West Auckland tonight?

Whangaparaoa Weather

4.15pm - our skys are blue, it is mild and the sun is shinning - are you sure it is still going to rain this evening?

Next Week Weather

Hi. Just wondering whats the weather going to be like next week in the Piha area. Doing some work in area and need 2 fine days to complete. Thanks!

Piha

Hi and thanks or your query

This Sunday,Monday and Tuesday look the most settled but still the risk of a shower on Monday. Good luck!

Extended Forecast boxes

Just wondering of anyone else is experiencing the same as I always have and that is the bottom of the boxes for Auckland are cutting off the wording so no 5 day forecast is complete. Would love a fix! Thanks

Auckland / Taupo

Please can you tell me which area has the most rain.
Auckland, (Pukekohe), or Taupo.
Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Jeremy

Pukekohe rain

Looks like Auckland gets more rain each year than Taupo.

Hope that helps.

Looks like miserable week

Looks like miserable week ahead of us, when can we next expect clear skies? Any ideas?

Clear skies

Hi there,

Later this week should reveal some sunshine :)

Cheers WW

Might be some mid next week

Might be some mid next week if we're lucky.

Hi there This could vary a

Hi there

This could vary a little bit depending on temperature and moisture levels in the air. For Sunday it's looking like periods of cloud with sunny breaks aswell.

At this stage we are expecting a cloud base of around 500m in the morning lifting to 800m in the afternoon but lowering again to 400m in the evening for Auckland. I would take those figures and +/- 100m either side for some possible variance.

Cheers
WW

Sunday 3 June

Hi. What sort of altitude do you expect the cloud base to be at on Sunday? This will affect my planned photography. Do you know where I can find this type of forecast on the web? I haven't been able to locate anything.

Thanks

2 Degrees!

I see there is a forecast for 2 degrees on Saturday morning...not a typo? Man that's cold!

Not a typo - but may shift up

Not a typo - but may shift up if we think there may be clouds around (a possibility with highs like this one for Auckland) but at this stage that's our feeling - and yes, cold, just like this morning!

snow

is there any chances of snow again in auckland city, winter is coming

Hi there - most years the

Hi there - most years the risk is just 5%, this year we have determined it is 30%, simply due to the weather pattern set up around the Australia/NZ region (and this has been the set up all year).  So the risk is certainly higher than your average year - but it's worth noting there is a 70% chance it won't snow, which is still in the "high confidence" category.  For snow again in Auckland we need another intense high over/near Tasmania which stretches down to Antarctica - while at the same time we have a low to the south east of NZ.  The two work together to suck up air off the polar caps and push it up and over NZ.  This is what we had back in August last year, and the reason we have a 30% chance this year is because we are seeing similar pressure systems to last year.

Hope that helps!

Kind regards

Philip Duncan

Next week

Just wondering what your predictions are for next week? I have a daughter heading off to Motutapu Island for school camp.Thanks :)

Next week

Hi there,

It looks as if it is fairly wet to start off  (late Mon, Tues and early Wed)  but drying out later on Wednesday and looking good on Thursday with sunny skies.

Thanks for your question and hope the camp goes well. Feel free to check in later this week.

Cheers,WW

Hi, are there any changes in

Hi, are there any changes in your predictions for next weeks weather?? Hoping it's good news!
Thanks for all the good work you do, I do enjoy your informative and regular updates.
Cheers :)

No, at this point the first

No, at this point the first part of the week is still looking wet.

At the same time, I think there is still a chance that could change.  The computer models are having a really tough time coming to an agreement on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

And thank you for the kind words.  We really appreciate it :)

Cheers

Weather for Riding AK -Waikato

Hi WW - group of friends and I are looking to get in maybe two (2) separate m/bike rides AK - south over the coming weekend.

Ride 1 - to Waikaretu (sth of Pt Waikato & nth of Raglan) & return same day. Times 2pm- 5/6pm.

Ride 2 - to Waitomo Caves area & return same day. Time all day 8am - onwards.

Had a good look at your interactive maps and my understanding is that there shouldn't be rain until late on Sunday 27 May (6pm onwards?).

However Sat 26th shows 10% chance precepitation. Any idea of time of day for AK area and will that rain turn up down Waikaretu area during day?

Any advice gratefully received by us.

Thanks

Bikie

Hi there, wow sounds pretty

Hi there, wow sounds pretty active!.  Yep for the most part it will be dry, slight risk of a brief light shower, something I doubt would significantly affect your travel plans.  Sunday the risk for rain starts off at 20%, shifts to 40% during the day and 70% by evening - timing of rain in advance can be tricky but based on the data it looks as though the weather will be mostly dry during the days.

Fog patches

A year ago today was when we had the bad "pea soup fog" when I saw the patches about I was wondering if it would be the same.
I remember also, the day we had condensation on all windows appear inside, warmer out than inside early in the day.

Frost on neighbours lawn and ice bits on car today.

I think I remember that day

I think I remember that day was early june,it rose in the morning to about 21c at 10am when it was 12 or 13 earlier that morning after a warm front.

Yep we're at that time of

Yep we're at that time of year where the sea surface temps are still highish and the nights are cold - prefect recipe for fog around Auckland - another risk tomorrow and Saturday too.  And yes - a light frost this morning too - less likely tomorrow and even less likely on Friday.

Cheers

Maximum overnight temperatures

Just a quick suggestion, rather than have overnight maximum temperature listed, wouldn't it be more relevant to list the overnight minimum? (perhaps more relevant for the cooler months)

I would assume that most people would be more interested in how cold it's going to be overnight so they can prepare accordingly....woolly socks...electric blanket...etc.

Keep up the good work.

Alternatively if you have

Alternatively if you have both the minimum and maximum projections, why not let us have both :-)

Hi there - yes we are

Hi there - yes we are removing the "max" from overnight.  It was part of a trial that just didn't really work!  We are going to bring back a temperature range for overnight lows...as sometimes it can be -1 while at the same time +5 in other parts of Auckland.  So we're going to do a temperature spread.  We don't support breaking Auckland up into regions either - as even the North Shore can have an extreme range of temps based on localised sea breezes and topography.  This will be far more accurate as generally speaking most people know if they live in an area prone to frosts etc.

Does that sound good?

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Hooray !! I see 0% precipitation for Tue, Wed, Thu

Finally something to look forward to next week :-)
