Do you reckon we are going to

Do you reckon we are going to see gales in Auckland tonight?

Hi there, winds aren't

Hi there, winds aren't expected to be gale force tonight but will be a bit blustery at times. In knots (below) gale force is 30 and up (red). Auckland looks to be mainly in the 15 to 25 knot bracket. It will be a fairly solid wind in exposed places with a few big gusts overnight - possibly briefly gale force in the most exposed areas (like the Harbour Bridge, hill tops, marine areas, etc). Keep an eye on your hourly forecasts for average wind speeds specific to where you are and use the Wind Maps too to help see where the strongest winds will be and when. The low moving in is also falling apart so damaging winds aren't currently forecast.

Saturday in Auckland

Hi Phil/Aaron, What’s West Auckland looking like tomorrow? When can rain be expected and any dry spells on the horizon? Asking from a cricketing perspective around midday. Thank you

Hi there, Saturday is a very

Hi there, Saturday is a very tricky day to be accurate about because we have both a band of rain moving in, then the risk of some heavy downpours - but it's hit and miss with dry spells developing. Can't answer your question with any real certainty due to the hit and miss nature of tomorrow. Definitely some chances you'll be ok to play then, but equally there could be a downpour that sets in... frustrating weather to plan things around! Sorry we can't be more specific than that.

Cheers

School holidays- Auckland

Hi there We’re just wondering if it’ll be a good one or not- all this rain is worrying! Thanks

Hi there We can look out for

Hi there

We can look out for the next 5 to 7 days currently, anything beyond that starts to get a bit hard especially with this type of weather we have at the moment.

Keep an eye on our rain maps if you like, this way you can track areas of rain and where they may move in future. See them here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Perhaps mid to late next week conditions are a bit drier :)

Auckland this Friday/Saturday

Interesting to see that you are predicting "breezy" winds while the other mob are saying possible gales. Hope you are right!

Hi there, we just updated a

Hi there, we just updated a short time ago to say "breezy to brisk" for Saturday (in other words, light in some places but a little blustery in more exposed areas). Gales are possible for a few hours but mostly marine/Hauraki Gulf. The low that is coming in does have strong winds attached but it's also weakening as it comes in.

Cheers!

Wellington 1 December

Hi there, As the weekend approaches, can you say with much confidence what Saturday will look like for the capital? Do cloudy patches mean it will be generally fine, does the 30% rain forecast mean it'll be muggy, and when in the day is it likeliest to rain? Doing some contingency planning for a get-together in the backyard. Also wanted to say, love the work you do - have been using WW over MetService for a while, much more useful forecasting in a city like Wellington (2-hour breakdowns mean little in a place filled with microclimates, and the temperature readings are a bit laughable when they're all based on the station away up there in Kelburn!) and a much cleaner UI. Keep on doing what you're doing!

Hi there Looks like there

Hi there

Looks like there will be plenty of high cloud, but areas of mid level cloud too. Some sun may break through at times from afternoon when mid level and high level cloud thins out a touch. The day is looking mainly dry but if a shower or spot of rain were to occur it may happen in the evening as higher level cloud thickens up again but the greatest chance is more overnight. Winds from the ENE and afternoon temperatures are looking in the high teens or early twenties.

It doesn't look overly muggy for Wellington on Saturday, dew points are around 14. That's not totally dry (dry in terms of the air dry) either though. Muggy conditions on Saturday start more about Auckland and especially Northland.

About as much detail as I hope you'll need right now.

Thanks for the kind words! Appreciate it very much! :)

First cyclone of the season?

Hi Phil There looks to be a possibility of a cyclone in early to mid December originating in the Coral Sea A long way out but worth keeping an eye on maybe Cheers Dave

garden function late afternoon and evening 8 or 9 December.

Which is more likely to be dry for a garden dance?

Hi there, accurate forecasts

Hi there, accurate forecasts for events and functions really can only be made a few days out, not 10+ days out. Feel free to ask us next week (also for where). Use our rain maps in the MAPS tab too, as they go out 10 days and give you a general idea as to where the highs and lows will be.

Cheers
WW

Why is your forecast

Why is your forecast different to MetService ?

Weatherwatch wouldn’t exist

Weatherwatch wouldn’t exist if we ran the same forecasts, NZers are definitely wanting a second opinion (or first!) from us.

Weather central Auckland 2nd decemver

Hi there, do you think it's reliable to assume heavy rain on the 2nd of Dec (next week Sunday?) - may have to cancel big plans...

Hi there Could be an isolated

Hi there

Could be an isolated heavy downpour, equally there may only be a few showers. Looks unsettled / quite changable around then. Besides that it's 7 days away so a bit far out yet.

Cheers
Aaron

Like to book good weather for next week!

May I send this forecast back and order a sunnier one for next Saturday please? Preferably, I would like one where it is cloudy, around 20 degrees, will tolerate the occasional shower, but not complete soaking if possible! And as it is Black Friday, may I have a discount ;) Not alot to ask, sure you can fix it!!!! :) Cheers, Jenny

Booking good weather

Brillaint, just brilliant!

Nice forecast

The weather is just GREAT! Not

Hi Jenny, the only down side

Haha :) Hi Jenny, the only down side with being a free service means you don't get a discount and we can't guarantee the weather you want...!! :) You may have to wait two more Saturdays to get what you want...next Saturday could also be wet. 
Sorry!
Phil D

Holding my breath, not good for me!!!

Thank you for the job experience for serious contingency planning! So not only do I have to manage the logistics of where to place the horses in the Santa Parade (note to self, after the little ones have passed, and make sure buckets are plentiful!!!), I need to play dodge the rainstorms and keep the event hype alive!!! We can nail this. So I claim the mass viewings of your forecast for next 9 days, and despite how many refreshes, it still says the same for Saturday! That was my day today, along with the panic buying of a quality Santa costume for the larger figure!!!! Wine is looking very good, let me tell you :) :) :) Love the free free service and annual chit chat (or panic convo!!!), thanks, you are very much appreciated.

Torrential Rain Auckland

Hey there, I love your weather reports and predictions and find them very reliable. MetService though are predicting over 100mm in rain for Auckland early Sunday morning....... that is very scary

Hi there, yes that's a lot of

Hi there, yes that's a lot of rain although Auckland City does cope quite well with totals of 100mm in one day so long as it's spread out and not just in a few hours! We don't see 100mm at this stage but certainly there is a very heavy band of rain that *may* stall over Auckland (equally it may not...which is why coming up with a total for Saturday is so hard). It depends very much on the shape and structure of the band of rain...when it's so small but intense you can have 100mm but for an entire region we don't expect that at this stage. We'll be doing extra updates across Saturday iself to stay on top of it too. 

Cheers

Thats A Relief to Hear

Wonderful, you guys just rock it!!!! thank you WW, Philip Duncan is fab too :)

Queenstown weather woes

Hi there, I just wanted to know why we might be experiencing a wetter November than normal? If there's more bad weather to come? And if we are still in store for a heatwave summer like last year? The weather is really bringing local queenstowners down.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the questions. Sorry to hear the weather is bringing you down, it has a habit of being known to do that sometimes! Firstly, the wetter than normal November has been caused by warmer than average Tasman Sea temperatures - and a few other factors - creating extra rain events. The good news is that Queenstown is on the outer edges of the "bad" weather forecast for the rest of November. In fact, Queenstown is expected to be both warmer than average and drier than average in the coming week (even if a bit cloudy at times with a few showers). As for summer, we expect many warmer than average days on the way for Queenstown, but perhaps with a few cooler than normal nights in the mix (has been the pattern past couple of months too). Hope that helps... enjoy the fairly sunny day tomorrow (with a high around 20 degrees).

Cheers :)

Wedding @ Kaukapakapa next Friday

Morning team, I hope you could help add some more insight to the weather predictions for Friday next week around Kaukapakapa. We're having our wedding there and the weather forecast isn't looking too flash. Thanks heaps! KC

Hi there Yeah isn't looking

Hi there

Yeah isn't looking the best around then, but your talking about something that's 7 to 8 days away and alot can change in that time frame. Sometimes you can lock things in a fair way out but it's been very changeable lately and that doesn't look like changing in the short term, around these times you'll only be able to start locking in forecasts more about 3 or 4 days out.

Hopefully a dry window opens up as we arrive closer to next Friday.

Cheers

Timaru rainfall - Sunday/Monday

Good morning. We are farming just inland from Timaru and after having 150mm already this month i need more rain like i need a third nostrel. What would your prediction be on likely amount over those days. Thanks and keep up the good work

Hi there, wow that's a lot

Hi there, wow that's a lot for Timaru in any month let alone November. We do have more rain on the way. Current best thinking is that about 50mm may come your way over the next week (possibly more). Hopefully spread out across a few days though, not all in one. Have a look at our weather video out later this morning with Phil as he's taking a detailed look at total expected rainfall across NZ between now and next Wednesday as we track two more large lows coming our way before December. Thanks for the local update, very helpful for us to see personal rainfall totals.

Cheers
WW

Hi, What would the expected

Hi, What would the expected rainfall be for the Christchurch area early next week (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday). As I have seen lots of rain in the forecast. Thanks

G'day there Looks to be about

G'day there

Looks to be about 50mm, but depending how things go this could be a tad less or a bit more. I'd say a range between 40 to 70mm may be appropriate. Even that could be out at the moment so we'll have to see how things look as we get closer. Still, that's a fair amount of rain considering things are quite wet at the moment.

Cheers
Aaron

What's the prediction for 5

What's the prediction for 5 pm around beachlands today? Touch rugby tonight!

Hi there Is a bit of a 50/50

Hi there

Is a bit of a 50/50 split with a chance of showers or dry areas, if you do get showers they could be heavy then easing this evening. Nothing too exact sorry, hope you have a great night!

Thanks Aaron - much

Thanks Aaron - much appreciated.

Hey guys Latest Metvuw maps

Hey guys Latest Metvuw maps shows better weather for Auckland this Saturday. Such a gamble as the forecast seems to change every 6 hours when the maps get uploaded. What are your thoughts on Saturday's forecast at this stage?

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the question. MetVuw use the same maps we have (and we are looking to display ours in thumbnail style next year as well as other improvements). The biggest problem with the forecast for Saturday (and Sunday to Wednesday for that matter!) is that every day the precise placement of these downpours will shift... so that's why some weather forecasts may show a Rain icon one update, then a Sunny one or sun/showers in the next update. In a set up like this it will be hard to be specific with accuracy until much closer to the time. As it's been for a few days now, this Saturday in Auckland shows a chance of both long dry spells and some heavy slow moving downpours (a bit like today but it could be wetter - or it may be very similar to today, that's what we're yet to lock in due to the slow movement of these very large lows).
Cheers
Phil D

Thanks for the response Phil

Thanks for the response Phil and keep up the good work.

Saturday 24November

Hi team, The rain maps have changed wuite a bit looks like it might not rain on Saturday from 11:00am, is that what you guys thing as well?

Hi there Probably best to

Hi there

Probably best to give it a few more days otherwise you'll be asking every day about how it's changed and do we agree with the latest change. Obviously it is changing a fair bit so chances are it'll change again over the next day or two, might be one of those ones where it's better looked at in more detail tomorrow or Thursday.

Cheers
Aaron

Cool! Thanks a lot Aaron!

Cool! Thanks a lot Aaron!

Will it

How come in chch it said it will rain all day today on monday and sunday but it didnt happen and will it rain monday night in chch?

Hi there I think from memory

Hi there

I think from memory you are right on Sunday we said rain for Monday but then Monday morning we could see it was going to be more of a showery day versus rain. So showers indicate a mix of wet and dry spells where as rain is more persistent all day long sort of stuff. Why the difference? It's just the information we had on hand, it looked more wet (i.e. rain) then it did dry at times. Obviously the dry spells got the better of us.

Overnight tonight looks mostly showery but there's a steady stream of rain that works it's way up to about Banks Peninsula for a time overnight, it could stay just south of the city or it may just move onto the city, a bit 50/50. The morning tomorrow looks showery then rain / shower activity may pick up in the afternoon before clearing later in the evening.

Cheers
Aaron

Hey guys How are things

Hey guys How are things looking for this Saturday in Auckland? Still 6 days out but when will we get more of an accurate reading of the weather?

Hi there Yes the very latest

Hi there

Yes the very latest info says it'll be fairly wet for much of the day, but this could oscillate and change a bit before we get closer to the day in question. It'll naturally get more accurate the closer we get. About 3 to maybe 4 days out is when things start to appear in their final form, if that makes any sense :D

Cheers
Aaron

Fingers crossed it changes :)

Fingers crossed it changes :)

Next week's storm

Snow in Christchurch in November,what are the chances.
