Comments

Yes I wondered this also?

Yes I wondered this also? Could it be dust as the ground is so dry and wind so gusty?

Wind destroys gazebo

Watched the neighbours gazebo blow to bits in the wild wind gusts in New Lynn. Not good having gazebos up in this windy weather.

Strong winds

New Lynn North has very strong gusts of wind, but beautiful & sunny. Looked like sprinkles of rain over the Waitakeres. Hate to think how gusty it is out on the Waitemata Harbour.

Wind information

As a keen yachtie I have been really annoyed at the lack of accurate information on wind speeds. I have been out three times in the last three weeks intending to stay out overnight, but prediction of wind warnings and 40 knot winds in all occasions did not occur. In fact last weekend, started in the middle of the week with great prediction for the weekend - then pow! Saturday forecast suddenly the low to the east appeared strongly with rain and 40 knot predicted. So Sat afternoon came home. Sunday - where were the 40 knots and the rain - we would have struggled to have had 12 knots. This is becoming a habit and fellow yachties and boaties are now getting a little tired of it and will go out regardleess - forecasts are like the boy calling wolf!!!! Yes I know today its windy! But too many good times out ruined because of very wrong forecasts on wind predictions - why is this?

Accurate

Use predictwind.com or swellmap.com. they are accurate

Wind forecasts

I agree with you totally. I am assuming you refer to Metservice marine forecast? They tend to overforecast wind speed I believe as self protection from citicism.

The problem is they do sometimes get it right, so although I don't rely on them you cannot ignore a warning of 40kts. It is definately frustrating.

We find it best to consider various maps etc and assess it ourselves but I would never ignore a warning of severe gales. At least you are still here able to tell the tale I guess, rather than ignoring it & getting caught out by it.

Cheers
Dave

Wind Forecasts

I have to comment that I do use many forecasts before going sailing. and have found nothing reasonably accurate as far as wind goes. I also look at maps etc.,and make a judgement which seems to be more accurate than anything else these days. But not being expert dont want to get too confident. There is a big difference between 12 knots and 40 knots - predicted on numerous occasions lately. As we have had these high winds now, there was the risk people just went for it, I agree 40 knots must be taken seriously, but when you have tried to commence your holiday 3 times and been fooled each time, its very frustrating - surely more accuracy, or close to it, can be achieved in this day and age?? Do agree with comments re Metservice, think they are being very overly cautious, but there does seem to be a genuine lack of ability to predict the wind,

Hi, Whats the weather looking

Hi,

No sign of calm

Wind is still blowing briskly in New Lynn North. Calm in shelter. Big trees moving well.

Sunday

Auckland hit a high of 27 degrees with SW conditions on Sunday.

Not a cloud in the sky

Auckland skies are totally blue with no clouds to be seen. A fantastic day.

Gorgeous we agree!

 ...and it's rare :)

Even tomorrows a bit dubious

Even tomorrows a bit dubious also,the flow southerly,it wont reach 26 surely you know that? 23/24 yes not 26 in auckland

That's ok as we have 25

That's ok as we have 25 above.

I would expect high temperatures tomorrow to range between 23 and 25 in Auckland.

Cheers

Greylynn site,not exposed as

Greylynn site,not exposed as much max 22.8 at 12.12 and now 22.6 so well off the mark.Perhaps thermometers are in the direct sun and will hear of late 30s.

Haymaker

HI. Wanting to make hay in Pukekohe area. Where is the haymaking weather?? Any idea when it will be around Pukekohe? Thanks.

Weather for the most part

Weather for the most part coming up is fairly dry although on Monday and Tuesday winds could be quite strong from the WSW. Low risk of a shower on Monday and Tuesday with mostly dry weather expected.

Later on Wednesday a light shower or two may creep in.

Cheers

Hi WW, Wunderground says that

Hi WW,

Jan 12 wedding

All the best for the big day and feel free to touch base next week for an update :)

Thanks
WW

Thats what I want to hear! -

Thats what I want to hear! - keeps changing day to day at the moment! thanks :)

Will today really get into

Will today really get into the 20's? It feels very chilly for Jan :(

Twenties

Perhaps we're being overly optimistic as the showers keep rolling in but later in the day/evening hopefully a clearance will help. Currently 17 degrees so fingers crossed. Thanks for your query :)

Beach weather

Hi could you tell me which day ths week would be best to go to the beach? Looking at going Orewa beach just north of Auckland.

Cheers!

Beach

Looks like Friday and the weekend especially are looking fairly good for the beach.

Temperatures back into the mid 20s this Saturday :)

Cheers and enjoy, WW

App

Does weather watch have an application on smart phones?

App

We're still in process of setting one up but timing wise we can't give you an exact date at this point.

Thanks for your query and have a great new year!

Next cyclone?

Your rain forecast map shows the remnants of a tropical cyclone visiting the north island later in the week. The MS equivalent rain forecast maps do not show this feature. How likely is it that this will wash out our Thursday/Friday?

Auckland Thunder

Hi there

Looking at the Metservice rain radar it looks like heavy rain and thunderstorms are heading straight for Auckland from the north west. They have also upgraded the thunder risk to moderate. What are your thoughts on this, as I trust you guys more.

Shane

A bit late now but as I'm

A bit late now but as I'm sure you'll know the front is passing over Auckland at the moment, thunder chances with this front I would say are on the low side.

Perhaps a slightly higher risk this afternoon as some heating gets going from the sun so we'll see. Even then chances are not high but a bit better then this morning. Might see some nice cumulus clouds about sort of thing.

Cheers
Aaron

Whangerei

Hi there,

I know you only do detailed forcasts for Auckland at this stage but we're hoping to go away to Waipu (just south of Whagerei) - we don't see the sense of driving up north to look at rain from inside a wee bach (kids go spare & we go insane). Weather in Auckland seems to be better this coming week than Whangerei at this stage. Can you give us any idea of the weather in Whangerei district/area fomr 31/12 - 01/01/2013 onwards please?

Thanks - really enjoying your more accurate forcasts for us in Auckland.

Beth

Whangarei district area

Hi Beth

Thanks for your query.

it looks brighter on both of those days with sunny spells more likely and drier conditions. Temperatures should be in the low 20s with less humidity.
Enjoy your trip and hopefully the kids won't drive you made as they should be able to be outside!

Have a great new year :)

Cheers

WW

Holiday

Hi there :)
I'm heading to Pauanui from the 28th until the 6th of January. Any ideas of what the weather may be like or is it too early to tell? These forecasts seem to change daily

Hi there Just put up a New

Hi there

Just put up a New Year's Eve forecast so you can go and have look at that.

As for all the days your taking your holiday on best bet is to take a look at our forecast maps and go through the rain map animations.

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/maps

That should give you a good indication of how the weather is looking coming up for the Coromandel.

Cheers
Aaron

Sunshine

Roughly what time do you think the sun will come out? I'm planning to take the kids out for a swim at the beach.

Much help appreciated

Desperate Aucklander

Hi there - we only expect

Hi there - we only expect brief glimpses of the sun today - with the majority of the showers/drizzle patches now easing (but stil remaining for the next few hours around the city here and there).  So long dry spells forming - but not neccessarily sunny all over the city.  But isolated sunny spells now starting to pop up.

Cheers

WW

31 Dec forecast

Sunny and clear skies - are you for real?

Hi there - if our forecast is

Hi there - if our forecast is short it means it's the computer generated one until we've gone over the top with our own predictions.  As you can it's now been updated - looking a bit 50/50 on the final day of the year - there is a window of dry weather according to the models - but the timing has to be bang on if Aucklanders want a settled, dry, night.  Fingers crossed!

- WW

Why is there no mention of the Wairarapa on the weather page when you select my region

Hi there, we don't receive

Hi there, we don't receive any government funding so have to cover the costs of all centres ourselves - not made easy when MetService tries to block us from growing (for example, lifting the cost of the daily highs - how hot it was at your place - went from $1200 a year to 30K a year back in April!  We have 2 complaints with the Commerce Commission about this under anti-competitive behaviour.  The Commission has been investigating since April).  

We hope to include Masterton and Blenheim in 2013 and we also have plans to roll out our detailed forecasts for Wellington and Dunedin in the coming couple of months.

metservice pessimists

Can't believe how often over the past few years I've looked at the metservice long range forecast for days 6 to 10 and seen rain on all 5 days.
They obviously take this as there stock position.
If they're right then no one can blame them.
If they're wrong we're just happy because it's sunny and so we don't blame them for getting it wrong (apart from the poor farmers)
Glad to see you guys call it as you see it.
