Hi there - at this very early

Hi there - at this very early stage we're predicting a lagre high over central NZ which may produce an easterly over Northland - and a 30 to 40% chance of showers.  However, you'll be on the west coast - so if the long range maps are right, you're in for mostly good weather.  Keep an eye on our rain prediction maps which go out for 14 days - http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/maps

Cheers

Models show Strong SW winds

Models show Strong SW winds in the north but it'll be cloud/showers in the west,not rain.

Helensville, Auckland

Are you predicting rain in Helensville in the morning ? Won't hold you to it LOL

Helensville

Looks more likely tomorrow morning but after the week we've had trying to predict exact locations....;)

Wind Gusts swirling

Wind gusts are strong at times swirling well in New Lynn. Monarchs finding flight perilous,especially new hatchings.

te urewera

hi, im booked to go on a 4 day tramp in the Te Urewera national park over easter weekend. I have heard its going to be bad weather out by gisbourne but can you tell me about the weather predictions for the Lake Waikaremoana district through that time. Is it worth giving up the tramp?? cheers

Te Urewera national park

Looks to be windy and wet from time to time. Quite unpleasant conditions are expected throughout the area until later in the weekend.

Cheers

Sat and Sunday

Hey Guys,

We planning a trip to Tauranga this Saturday and Sunday how is the weather looking can we expect any Sunshine?

Cheers

Hi - the large air of low air

Hi - the large air of low air pressure coming out of the tropics is really making a mess of long range predictions at the moment.  Our feeling is that while there is a high risk for wind and rain all weekend in the upper NI, we expect to see some blue sky periods and some calm spells.  We'll have an Easter Forecast out tomorrow (Tuesday) and we hope to greatly add detail to it later on Wednesday.

Kind regards

Philip Duncan 

WOOHOO...

...yet another week of inclemency!!!!!

Hi guys have noticed

Hi guys have noticed metservice is now only say showers for tuesday wednesday, whats your thoughts,as you guys say heavy rain is there still alot of confusion out there about the possible cyclones predicted track.

We will have a complete

We will have a complete update later this afternoon.

At this time though, for Auckland, I am thinking rain...possibly heavy for Tuesday.  Easing for Wednesday.

We almost got it!  Very heavy

We almost got it!  Very heavy rain has been falling all afternoon - but it's been stubborn and has remained a tiny 50kms offshore!  Looks like rain is more likely overnight and Weds morning, esp north of the city centre.

YET ANOTHER MAJOR WEATHER EVENT...

...and so it goes on...ad infinitum ad nauseum!!!!

Good friday

It's my daughters 21st on Friday 6th April to be held outside can you please tell me the likelihood of rain that evening?thanks

Hi there - still far too much

Hi there - still far too much uncertainty next week to be specific about Good Friday sorry - we expect a low to be nearby but it is likely to be weakening or clearing the country around then.  Keep an eye on our rain maps above.  Sorry we can't be more specific just yet.

Cheers!

We are extending our house,

We are extending our house, and the plan is to have the slab poured on Wednesday. We're a bit screwed aren't we. We're going to have to wait till after Easter to have this done now aye or is there a chance that it will be fine on Thursday??? Please say yes :)

Hi there - next week shows a

Hi there - next week shows a high risk (60%) of rain from Tuesday to Friday sorry!  In saying that, there could be three lows moving in to the North Island next week - you may find some dry, sunnier, spells amongst the rain clouds - but it's too early to know when that will be, the long range guidance with this particular system is very messy.  Good luck for next week!

- PD

Gutted, but thanks for the

Gutted, but thanks for the heads up :)

IT'S A SHAME...

...the Auckland area had to wait until the end of March to get three fine days in a row!!

Auckland weather Sunday morning

Hi, we're having a morning tea party for a house full of toddlers and their parents on Sunday morning in Auckland - is the 20% chance of rain more likely in the morning or afternoon do you think? Hoping we'll be able to let the kids outside! Thanks.

Right now it looks like

Right now it looks like morning.

But keep in mind, it's only a 20% chance.  So basically, you have a 2 in 10 chance of seeing a shower during your tea party.

So I think the chances for getting the children outside is are pretty good.

Cheers, HJ

Easter Saturday Wedding

Hi! Getting married Easter Saturday in Auckland - know it's still a bit early for a forecast....any idea how soon we'll have a better idea of what that day is shaping up to look like? Fingers crossed for no rain!

We hope to have the first Easter forecast out tomorrow (just a basic one) - but a more accurate, detailed, forecast will be likely over the weekend or very early next week.

Cheers

Those sun icons get pushed

Those sun icons get pushed out day after day replaced by cloud ones knowing when will the next real sunny day be?

Very rare that Auckland has a

Very rare that Auckland has a cloud free day - in fact I could count on one hand in 10 years the number of days that have had zero clouds in them in Auckland (about 5 from memory).  Even on stunning blue sky days there are always clouds in the distance in the Auckland region - comes from having two coastlines and two different bodies of water!  The south east flow that will strengthen a bit in the coming days could see some sunnier weather - but for now we expect a mix of sun and clouds. 

Cheers!

So far its one of those rare

So far its one of those rare days!,Easter 1992 all 4 days was like this off my memory too.

Hi there really appreciate the weather watch. I hope the forcast doesn't change for Saturday, my grandson is having a party. A lot of children so hope the sun is shining down!!!

I think your 10% chance of a shower is about to dump itself over St Johns - very black over here!!! LOL! love your work and looking forward to sneak previews of what easter might hold!

Thanks for the Easter update-

Thanks for the Easter update- and no, not a drop!!!

Starting to howl from SW

Starting to howl from SW again Surprise...
As for northland it be settled at 1st this week with easterlies increasing as the week goes on due to a slow moving high and the way the models are going looks pretty unsettled at Easter at this stage but still quite early.

Easter Weekend

How are we looking for the Easter Weekend - Northland region

That's still a bit too far

That's still a bit too far off to be really confident with the forecast.  However, it's close enough where we are getting some data from the computer models.  Right now, indications are it will be cloudy and a little rainy with highs around 16.

But a lot can happen between now and then.  Stay tuned...

Cheers, HJ

The SW will be stronger than

The SW will be stronger than we think....especially Auckland.the front is moving quicker than expected and little chance for the flow to flatten out to a westerly.

Sunrise time ???

Hi guys, are your sunrise times not currently adjusted for "day light savings" ???
Cheers for all the great work u guys constantly do too ... :0)

It's a bug that we are

It's a bug that we are working on.  Daylight Saving Time will be ending at the on April 1st.  Somehow our computers got stuck on ending it a bit early.  Thanks for letting us know though.

And thank you for the compliments.

Cheers, HJ

Yes, that's correct.  Rain should hold off until after sunset.

Sat rain

Hi ya, any idea when rain will set in tomorrow? Early or late afternoon? Planned a lunch time picnic :-(

Hi there - according to our

Hi there - according to our rain maps it looks as though it will be in the evening - some data suggests the afternoon also.  Timing is always the trickiest part with incoming fronts...some models were picking it arriving in the morning a couple of days ago.  Keep an eye on our rain maps over the next 24 hours.

Cheers - and all the best

It would be so cool if the rain decide to hit Auckland after dark :)
