Week in Central Otago

Hi Duncan, Keep up the great work with the website. We are in Wanaka/Queenstown 15-22nd September. What are our chances of some late season snow in the mountains? Cheers,

Hi there Could be some snow

Hi there

Could be some snow high up in the mountains on the 16th in the morning otherwise that's about it by the looks of things! Enjoy your trip away and thanks! :)

Cheers

Historical weather

Hello. I am trying find weather warnings for New Plymouth on Friday 10th August 2018 and Saturday 11th August 2018. Specifically, lightning strikes recorded. Can you help. Thanks

Hi there, sadly NZ it the

Hi there, sadly NZ it the *only* country in the entire western/developed world to give Government agencies like MetService and NIWA the power to control this data on a *commercial* level - this means we are blocked from openly helping you. In all other western nations we'd be able to help you, quickly and likely at no fee, because we could share data that we all collectively tax fund. In the meantime, please contact MetService or NIWA directly for this information. Both NIWA and MetService now compete directly against each other (imagine if we had two police forces!?). If this frustrates you - as it does us - you can email Minister Megan Woods (as she is currently reviewing this set up following an independent Government review that recently supported our point of view that this is wrong).

Kind regards
Philip Duncan

MetService and Niwa

'By the Otago Daily Times --- Private forecasting company WeatherWatch claims MetService is engaging in ''misleading advertising'' and has taken the state-owned enterprise to the Commerce Commission.' Good luck with that, Philip. Their behaviour is clearly wrong, unjust and borders on the corrupt in my view. Weatherwatch is a great site and deserves to succeed.

November

Hi are you able to do a forecast for first month of November please?

Hi there Do you mean November

Hi there

Do you mean November 1st? That's too far away at this point in time, come back and ask 7 to 10 days out and maybe we might have an idea then :)

Auckland Fri 07 Sep

Here is the TAF - seems diametrically opposed to what you have.... TAF AMD NZAA 060558Z 0606/0706 18012KT 9999 -SHRA FEW025 BKN050 FM062200 22015G25KT 9999 -SHRA BKN050 FM070500 18012KT 9999 SCT050

Hi there, the past 24 hours

Hi there, the past 24 hours have been a bit unusual in Auckland (but the set up makes sense), it's just lingering. Our latest updated forecast shows this patchy rain extending into early Friday then should start to break up and dry out. Cloudy then sunny spells may develop. SE set ups like this in Auckland with 'clunky' lows just off to the east can be frustrating to forecast as a lot of moving parts impact the cloud cover, precipitation and overall movement.
Cheers

Get lost Cold Weather

Over the cold. Any chance you can bring us news of warm weather?

That could depend where you

That could depend where you live. But towards the middle of this month it might get a bit warmer, also in 2 to 3 months time it'll start to get really warmer :D

Re: Temerature variations

Hi There, I know there are temperature variations across the different suburbs in Auckland. I'm guessing it's fairly minimal but would you know which suburbs tend to be the coolest in Summer? Thanks.

H there, generally those in

H there, generally those in coastal areas are coolest in summer due to the many various sea breezes. Suburbs that face towards the SW may perhaps be some of the cooler ones, like Hillsborough, Onehunga, Mangere and Piha, or exposed areas like Whangaparaoa. Inland areas, like Henderson, are usually the hottest (as it's in a valley and has ranges to the west which block the cooler sea breezes. Auckland is tricky though as most suburbs have varying terrain so Mt Eden, for example, could be exposed to a cool SWer but other parts sheltered from it too so warmer.

Kind regards

Cold outbreak

Hello Met service is hinting at snow south and east of the waimak ..is this truth or dare..?

Hi there, we've just posted a

Hi there, we've just posted a map of heavy snowfall accumulation in our News feed. This doesn't cover random flurries to lower levels, but shows where the problematic amounts will be over the next three days.

Fog Auckland

Is Auckland Airport likely to be affected by fog on Wednesday 5th September?

Good morning, at this stage

Good morning, at this stage fog in Auckland doesn't look likely due to a windier southerly.

Kind regards

Auckland fog

Thanks. That's good to hear!

Is there Snow forecast anytime during 01 to 05 Sep18

We are keen to see snow fall is there a fair chance during our stay to see.

Hi there That depends where

Hi there

That depends where you are staying in New Zealand. Snow to sea level is not looking very likely although this could change. Perhaps overnight Sunday / early morning Monday (2nd/3rd September) may see some snow about the South Island mountain ranges as a cold change moves through.

rugby

Hi, taking my kids to their 1st rugby game at Eden park on Saturday evening - just the cheap seats though so no covering. Weather looks to be dry - is that the case do you think?

Hi there, keep an eye on our

Hi there, keep an eye on our hourly forecasts for Auckland and the rain maps too, all helps work out the risks. Generally speaking the showers will be easing and clearing with cool SW winds easing back too. Bring a jacket perhaps...and have a great time!

Auckland rain

Auckland must have by far the worst weather of a main centre in NZ. Will it ever stop raining here? I feel we will need to declare Auckland a drought zone if we ever get a week without rain! I am sick of it - so depressing.

What? This winter has been

What? This winter has been much warmer, sunnier and drier than usual. May be you should travel a little and experience what happens elsewhere?

Haha - NO!

Water tanks overflowing - ground sodden - it's been a stink winter. North Shore Auckland.

Lol

If you don't like the rain, don't live in a city with a subtropical climate. The winter has been amazing. Yes, it has been wet, but it's winter?! However, it's been a lot warmer than usual.and how many frosts can you remember having this winter? Gold coast is in the dry season in winter if you need an escape ;)

rain !

i've only spent one whole day inside this winter due to rain. it's not like downpours from dawn to dusk, i love verdant aux !

Hi there, yes there have

Hi there, yes there have certainly been a lot of days with wet weather in them. The overall totals aren't too extreme but it's most the relentless showers etc. Sunday to Tuesday all look dry and hopefully mild too :)

Tonight's weather.

Is it going to be stormy tonight?

Could be a little stormy for some western parts of the North Island, north of about Taranaki through to Waikato. Some heavy rain possible.

Hunuas

Hi Think of going for a bike ride through the Huunas on Saturday afternoon - starting around 12 or 12.30. Do I need to pack the rain jacket? Cheers Des

Hi Des, keep an eye on our

Hi Des, keep an eye on our rain maps for Saturday - it looks like a few light showers may be lingering but hopefully it will be fairly dry out over the Hunuas. Perhaps bring a light rain jacket just to be safe :) 

Cheers

Thanks so much :)

Thanks so much :)

Polar southerly

Hi, I was just wondering if there have been any developments regarding this: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/mild-westerlies-dominate-a-week-there-a-cold-southerly-coming-next-week

Hi there, we still have a

Hi there, we still have a cold southerly next week but it may not be a major event. It looks weak to begin with then peaks around Wednesday at this stage. We'll have more details in our weather video out around noon on Friday.

- WW

just asking

We're planning to go to Mt. Ruapehu on the 22 August. With the forecast of showers ( 50% chance of rain ), is it worth it ? We haven't been since 2010 and the boys are looking forward to it. Please advise. We live in Wellington. Thanks

Hi there Wednesday next week

Hi there

Wednesday next week is quite far away at this point in time but currently I'm seeing a reasonable chance of showers during the day, meaning wet weather. I won't put a percentage figure on it but I'll say a medium to good chance of showers looking at the situation currently.

Come back and ask closer to time if you like otherwise have a good trip.

Cheers
Aaron

Te Puna Weather

Hi, we are looking at spraying hi-cane on kiwifruit tomorrow, is it fine all day, when is rain likely to come in, and when is next fine day. Cheers Lorraine Muggeridge. Te Puna Tauranga.

Hi there

It should be dry for most of today then the odd light shower starts to move in during the evening, rain moves in overnight. Thursday looks to be the next mainly dry day, later in the evening a few showers move in however.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there I’m concerned a

Hi there I’m concerned a anout tuesdaysweather in Auckland are we looking stars storm? How windy and rainy will it be? And is it all gone by wednesday?

Hi there Not sure what you

Hi there

Not sure what you mean by stars storm exactly. But Tuesday looks like there will be occasional showers, more so from afternoon then rain develops in the evening. Rain eases to showers again overnight as breezy northwesterly winds change southwest, showers gradually ease during Wednesday with long dry spells developing in the evening. Winds fresh from the southwest on Wednesday. Winds overall are not too bad on Tuesday then in the evening they start to become quite blustery and this continues for much of Wednesday.

Cheers
Aaron

Thank you I’m sorry I didn’t

Thank you I’m sorry I didn’t mean star storm I just meant is it likely to be stormy? Would you classify it as a storm?

Overnight there could be some

Overnight there could be some thunderstorms actually so technically yes overnight there may be a few storms.

Good luck with whatever you're up too :)

Cheers
Aaron

September

Hi there, Is next month likely to be wet?

Hi there, the current pattern

Hi there, the current pattern is encouraging wetter weather in the west and drier in the east (a typical early spring pattern to be honest). With sea surface temperatures in the Tasman Sea cooling a lot more now (cooler than average in some areas after the marine heat wave that encouraged all those cyclones earlier this year) so this bodes better for a drier pattern around NZ. With the arrival of westerlies already and a warmer than average pattern it's perhaps a safe bet that Sept will see a continuation of August - driest in the east, wettest in the west (and wettest weather the further south you go on the western coastline, ie Fiordland, South Westland).

Cheers
Philip Duncan

September

Thanks for that. Does Hamilton count as East or West?
