Milford

Lads, wedding in Milford on Sat approx 4p - likelihood of it shifting indoors please?! Positively?!

Right now, it looks like

Right now, it looks like there is a very real chance it will need to shift in doors.  Currently we are looking a large band of rain moving in sometime during the late afternoon or evening hours on Saturday.

At this point I would say there is about a 70% chance of it needing to be moved in doors.

Cheers

Are severe gales still expected in Auckland?

Hi,
Today's NZ Herald - "Mr Duncan said today's expected severe gales would build quickly in northeast Auckland..."

It's about 10am now. Just want to know whether the risk of severe gales in Auckland has passed.
Thanks.

Hi there - that press release

Hi there - that press release was sent to the media yesterday afternoon - since then we've revised down the risk for severe gales but still expect strong to gale force gusts in exposed parts of the city.  The risk was never for during the day - it was from 6pm tonight to 6am tomorrow.    Worst winds will be around the Gulf and out towards Great Barrier Island. Rain is more of a feature for Auckland.

Easter

Any ideas on the forecast for Easter weekend???

Andrew

Wet. Easter usually is if I recall the deluges of the past 40 years correctly. We have occasionally had a good one but..........

Probably be wet and windy,its

Probably be wet and windy,its been that the last 3 months now.

Helensville weather tomorrow (Wednesday)

Can I plan a day in the garden tomorrow morning?

It's possible but not

It's possible but not guaranteed!  Some of our data suggests that it may we quite a dry day for you, while other models show rain hovering around the northern side of Auckland.  But our feeling is that you should be able to get some gardening done tomorrow, yes.   As for all day - the jury is out until the morning :)

Cheers

Apologies for the glitch in our system - while we are working towards showing more content this isn't what we had in mind!  We hope to have this resolved this evening.  Again, our apologies for the tech problem.

Hi there - there is a slight

Hi there - there is a slight delay when you change a region - 5 to 10 seconds for some users.  But we are also aware there is a bug with the drop down list - it's in our list of improvements to be made before Easter.  Sorry for the troubles.

From what I can see on metservice, it hasn't gotten past 16.5 , don't even think it's reached 16 in the waitaks

Would this be the lowest high auckland has had this year?...so far

Oh great

It's looking like a fun week ahead....

It was nice to have a few lovely days last week, I think we'd all just like a few more!

RELOCATE

Any chance you could tow Northland/Auckland somewhere else so we can get a crack at some decent weather for a change...

Saturday

Hey Folks
The weather reports for this Saturday around Auckland are so confusing, Do you guys reckon its going to be a good day have got Criket from 12 till 6.pm.

Thanks

Hi there - it's looking good

Hi there - it's looking good for cricket with sunny and cloudy spells and light easterlies.  20 to 30% chance of a shower from some  afternoon cloud build ups.

Cheers

hamilton

At the cricket in Hammerz and heavily overcast but your forecast for us says sunny with some cloud...ooopss WW give us the sun you've promised ;)

We need rain

Better still, can WW conjure up a few days of solid rain for Hamilton? It's short notice, I know, but things are looking dire for NZ's cricketers.

Do you think it is going to be sunny next Wednesday?

Do you think it is going to be sunny next Wednesday?
I have had a look at the maps but it dosnt have the time around 5.00-7.00PM
What do you think the weather is going to be like

Hi there - the maps don't

Hi there - the maps don't have times that far out because it simply wouldn't be accurate this far in advance, but generally speaking there is a 30% risk of a shower on Wednesday.

Cheers,

Why is everybody getting

Why is everybody getting married? They must be bloody crazy lol

Thanks

Hi Amanda - our longrange

Hi Amanda - our longrange rain maps do indicate a low passing over the upper North Island bringing rain that weekend - but very early days yet, so keep checking those rain maps.

Saturday Mar 17 - Central Auckland Weather

Hi,

I'm getting married this Saturday and over the last 3 days the forecast has gone from clear and sunny to cloud increasing with Sunday looking very wet. I'm worried that Sunday's weather might come in earlier.

What is your best guess for the area around central Auckland / Mt Eden for Saturday afternoon and evening? It's more the wind and any heavy rain that I'm worried about than whether or not it's sunny.

Thanks :-) Amanda

Hi Amanda - all the models

Hi Amanda - all the models are still indicating late Sunday so the window does look big enough to give Saturday dry weather - but it may become cloudy.  Latest data shows just a 10% chance of rain on Saturday and a 40% chance on Sunday afternoon rising to 60% on Sunday night.

Cheers - and have a wonderful day :)

- Philip Duncan

 

Sunday weather

Hi there

Can you tell me why the Weather Watch forecast is for rain on Sunday and the Metservice website has a sunny day with not even a hint of cloud?

Confused

Hi there - it's down to

Hi there - it's down to reasons 1) Because we use different models - we are independent of their forecasts.  2)Their forecasts beyond 5 days are entirely computer generated.

The rain on Sunday may not arrive until the end of the day - but some models suggest it could arrive in the morning - so we're sticking with "rain developing" at this stage, as it's too early to have timing nailed down.  Most models suggest Sunday night will be wet at this early stage - but we need a couple more sweeps to be more certain, which will be 24 hours away.

We often have quite different forecasts to MetService - up to our readers to decide who, in the long run, is more accurate :)
