temperature recording

Hi there, the current temperature for Welcome Bay Tauranga hasn't been showing a reading for a few days now. The station ID is IBAYOFPL71 Many thanks.

Good morning, we've placed a block on this site so hopefully a nearby one is showing up for you now (or soon). If not, please do let us know. Also, a side note, we're also aware of a glitch with the times of updating in some weather station at the moment and IBM are already working on this.

Cheers!

Hamilton weather site current temps not working

Hi, just letting you know the Hamilton current temperature reading has not been showing a reading for a few days now. Thanks

Thanks for this. On our

Thanks for this. On our observations page we can see it's missing, but just wondering if the website is showing you a specific Station ID that we can search deeper into?

Thanks a lot for letting us know - with hundreds of live stations across NZ there is always one that is giving us some work to sort - the positive is that we often have a nearby one we can switch to :)

Sun Dog 27 August 2019

Hello I have never seen this before. In the Rangiora Countdown carpark looking west. Amazing.near 5pm 27 August 2019.a 2nd sun to the left of the real sun and a small rainbow. Did anyone get a good photo shot of this? Helen Walker pmh.walker81@gmail.com

Hi Helen, yes we got this

Hi Helen, yes we got this photo sent in to us last night on Twitter  - a great thing to see! :)

best forecasters ever

you guys are the best fore casters ever. The stratospheric warming they forecasting Im not taking that seriously. i think your forecast is the right one. keep up the good work.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the support :) To be clear we aren't saying it isn't happening, we're saying there is currently no direct link to NZ's weather forecast that matches any of the big headlines and comments we've seen elsewhere! For now spring is looking very ...springy!  Cheers, WW

What is this stratospheric

What is this stratospheric warming?? Is it something to be worried about?

Hi there, the news coverage

Hi there, the news coverage of this event has been quite confusing - this is one of the problems when we have two government forecasters now competing against each other to be in the news. Basically it's a significant event in Antarctica that can lead to some polar outbreaks over the Southern Ocean and potentially beyond. At this stage there is no polar blast forecast for NZ though, but we do expect the usual spring chaos (mild sunny days mixed in with some cold wet, wintry days) as we go into September.  The coverage has been a bit over the top as many news outlets made it sound like a major winter blast was coming but Niwa hasn't given any specific winter forecast for any regions. People should always be concerned about spring weather patterns, but so far nothing to be specifically worried about. Keep up to date with our news website, if anything major is on the horizon we usually give a good week or two warning - along with our 10 day forecasts. :)

Cheers

WW

PS. In NZ the official Government forecast agency is MetService, not Niwa. 

Weather station location

Hi, where's your weather station for Whangarei located? Scott.

Hey Scott, it depends on

Hey Scott, it depends on where you are! We have quite a few around Whangarei. You'll find your Current/NOW temperature should have a Station ID next to it, if there's any problems with it just quote us that Station ID and we can look into it, or block it.  Check here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/observations

Weather Station Location

I'm checking the drift on my barometer attached to my Lung function testing device. Usually clings to your reading, lately moved away. Your readings are great.

Four digit numbers

Hi WW I've noticed when Philip is reading the weather forecast, on the map you can see the isobars as solid lines with the air pressure nicely indicated, but there are some other lines appearing as dashes which have four digit numbers begging with 5. Love to know what's happening there thanks

G'day thereThey are

G'day there

They are thickness lines. It literally means what it says, it represents the thickness of the atmosphere. In most cases and in these maps with Phil it's between the 1000mb and 500mb level, these levels do fluctuate. When the atmosphere is warm the thickness is often greater in value, when it's very cold it's lower in value.

Here's some more info: www.weather.gov/jetstream/thickness

Hope that helps!

Wind

Will the wind die down today for my bike ride?

Hi there, take a look at our

Hi there, take a look at our special hourly forecasts it will show you the wind speed and if it's going up or down. Generally we're expecting winds to pick up a little further this afternoon, then easing back a little this evening.

Cheers and all the best for the bike ride!

WW

Polar spring

What is this rare polar event met service is telling us about that might create a cold spring for september 2019?

Hi there, we don't closely

Hi there, we don't closely monitor their long range forecasts as they are often unhelpful. We do know we have some changes south of NZ affecting our pattern right now (why we are getting more lows and SW winds) but nothing yet jumping out as any major polar changes. In fact even with a southerly change coming in tonight both Friday and Saturday afternoons still look warmer than average in many parts of NZ.

Cheers

WW

hail

does the hail risk ease this afternoon cause in tonight it says hail again.

Hi there, no we have removed

Hi there, no we have removed that now. For a time we wondered if a little surge of heavy showers might come in with the southerly but that doesn't look likely now. 

Cheers,

WW

nice

I love thunder :D

so do i

so do i. we are in for a thundary night tonight by the looks of things.

Hi there, not looking too

Hi there, not looking too active at the moment. A few isolated thunderstorms around though. We're not forecasting them as much as others are. Keep an eye on the lightning tracker though :)

Cheers
WW

I am

I am as I know the risk is for the whole night. metservice even has a severe thunderstorm watch.

Me too

I love them also, but WW was right for last night. Hopefully better odds Fri arvo/evening!

Board trip

Hey guys, we’re wondering what the weather will be like for our board trip flight in tomorrow?! Thanks!

Hi there I'm not sure where

Hi there

I'm not sure where you are talking about. One bit of advise I can give is if it's not safe to fly they won't put you in the air so there you go :D

Cheers

thunderstorms

are we going o have thunderstorms and hail in auckland tommorow cause thats what metservice is forecasting.

Hi there, yes we have a risk

Hi there, yes we have a risk of thunder and hail. Our latest weather video which will be up later this morning explains the risks. We also have special maps on our homepage news section right now showing the thunderstorm risks for the next few days ahead.

Cheers

WW

thanks

thanks this month has sure been a rainy and thundary month. tornadoes have been in the mix too.

Yes definitely feels like an

Yes definitely feels like an early spring weather pattern now, the windy westerlies and thunderstorms/squalls and hail have certainly made for a different month of weather in August compared with June and July

WW

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all the great work you do, you are definitely the most accurate and enjoyable forecasters. Was just wondering what you make of all the talk about an upcoming SSW? Niwa have come out and said it will make for a stormy next few months. What are we to make of this? Thanks.

Hi there, NIWA has a

Hi there, NIWA has a reputation for being as accurate as the flip of a coin for seasonal forecasting. Basically they are saying spring will be stormy...that's pretty normal! It does seem more unsettled now than it was a month ago, but also some signs we have some incoming calm also, thanks to big highs in the mix too (next week doesn't look too bad at this stage, for example). We focus on monthly outlooks as seasonal in NZ can be a bit laughable at times. :) Cheers for your support and kind message, we really appreciate it.

Cheers

Coming Spring/Summer

Hello, First of all, thank you so much for bringing us quality weather reports, I prefer WW much over compared to Metserv. Do you guys think Auckland will be having a warmer than normal temperature coming this Spring/Summer? Thanks!

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for the support and kind words, they mean a great deal to us! At this stage we see normal to above normal temperatures coming in for Auckland. A little cooler in the days ahead but next week looks quite pleasant at times. As for summer, too far out to know but global trends (and even NZ trends) have been showing some warmer than average set ups for the past few years. We'll have more details about September's outlook later next week :)

Cheers!

Next weekend

Hi there, what is the weekend of 30th looking like in Raglan? Cheers.

Hi there That's 10 to 11 days

Hi there

That's 10 to 11 days away so anything I say now will more then likely change by the time the 30th comes around, becomes a little redundant.

However in saying that this is what I'm seeing currently. Friday has some rain gradually clearing away. Sat and Sun have areas of cloud, perhaps some sun, perhaps even the risk of a light shower or two otherwise mainly dry, winds moderate from the southwest.

But yeah, this will most likely change.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there

Not sure regarding last night sorry, I personally wasn't on board then.

As for today you are right, initial modeling showed showers clearing this afternoon but clearly they nearly hung around till evening. Just a choatic day where not everything went to plan, it happens sometimes :(

Cheers
