How heavy

Hi there how heavy is the rain for waitakere city Auckland please on Tuesday

G'day there This isn't

G'day there

This isn't exactly an exact science, the average is lookin to be 15 to 20mm across Auckland. But some areas could recieve more some could see less. And depending on where rain tracks exactly there will be variables within that also.

Hopefully you get what you need or less if you don't require it! :)

Nuhaka Weather

I thought Weather Watch prides itself on it's accuracy, but......... Why are you using Murwai (GISBORNE26) for Nuhaka Weather? The places are 40 kms apart with the Wharerata ranges in between. Nuhaka (HAWKESB16) is at Nuhaka. Example Nuhaka's rainfall for last 7 days is 68.31 mm; Mantuke (unavailable) GISBORNE WEST 32.1 for December). Get it more accyrate please

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your complaint although it's a little confusing. We're the only forecaster in NZ to even provide a Nuhaka forecast for 10 days out - and we're the FREE service, not the ones you must tax fund who do NOT provide you with a Nuhaka forecast.

You may have missed our 10 year very public fight with the Government to get data you are already paying for in taxes, but we are blocked from displaying - and is why Niwa and MetService are now under investigation: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/116203356/commerce-commission-investigating-niwa-and-metservice

We're a free service and we do have a local station for Nuhaka. If you're telling us you're seeing a different weather station in the NOW section we can perhaps find a way to remove it for you. Next year we'll be giving people more options to select from a list of local stations. Despite you paying for Niwa and MetService in tax funding it's great to see you relying on our 100% free service.

Kind regards
WW

thunder

when is there a chance auckland will get a decent thunderstorm?

Hi there May be a chance on

Hi there

May be a chance on Sunday and perhaps Monday coming up. Thunderstorms aren't exatly an exact thing, they are often a risk so never garantueed. Keep an eye on our Auckland forecasts.

Cheers
Aaron

Hiya, Is there no Xmas

Hiya, Is there no Xmas forecast this year?

Christmas in the park

Hi was wondering if the rain will hold off for Christmas in the park on Saturday?

Hi thereSomeone else asked

Hi there

Someone else asked the same question today about xmas in the park. I answered with this below:

"Any showers on Saturday will be of an isolated nature, as the day wears on into the evening any showers will likely clear away so will hopefully be a good night! :)"

Saturday Rain Forecast - Henderson - Lake Panorama area

Good Day I have a large Christmas family dinner to set up on our outside deck starting around 3pm and just wondering if I need to go buy gazebos even thought its about a 30% chance on rain? Thanks :)

Hi there This far out I'm not

Hi there

This far out I'm not sure, it's too far into the future to give any specifics.

At this stage perhaps it's looking settled and mainly dry for the North Island, settled for the eastern South Island and maybe showers for the West Coast of the South Island.

If you like use these maps to see how the situation unfolds as we get closer to Christmas:

http://weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Then click on "Rain"

It will probably change day by day as time goes along but 7 days out it may start to have some consistency.

Hope your dinner goes well.

Cheers, Aaron

Southland rain

When will the rain stop in Southland and when will we get some sun and warmer temps? We haven’t had sun in weeks

Hi thereSince the weather is

Hi there

Since the weather is ever changing the best thing I can do to answer your question generally is to point you to our Invercargill forecasts here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Invercargill%2C%2520Southland

Or use our rain maps:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Scroll through those maps and you can see for yourself when areas of rain or showers will be moving through or when it may be dry.

Hope that helps!

Cheers, Aaron

Southland rain

I'm visiting Te Anau and surrounds next week for some hiking and I'm a bit worried about all the rain forecast. Does that area get steady sustained rain usually, or just little showers and drizzle?

Hi there Te Anau can get a

Hi there

Te Anau can get a mixture of weather being close to the mountains where it is, that's for sure. Rain, thunderstorms, drizzle, sunny weather........ The first half of next week may be wet but then it looks to dry out in the second half.

Have a good trip!

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks Aaron!

Thanks Aaron!

Wind

Hi, why does the "Now in Christchurch" column always say there's 0 km/h wind? We all know that is never the case in Christchurch so there must be an error that should be corrected.

Hi there What is the station

Hi there

What is the station ID number in the now box showing? We'll remove that station and hopefully it will correct the issue.

Cheers
Aaron

Station number

The number is ICHRIS60. Hope this will help to get more accurate information about the wind.

Thanks for that, will remove

Thanks for that, will remove that station and hopefully it will re direct to a station with wind speeds.

Hi there, 2 questions: 1. Do

Hi there, 2 questions: 1. Do you think the rain on Saturday will hold off for Christmas in the Park? (Auckland) and 2. When will your Christmas forecast be coming out? Thanks guys!

Any showers on Saturday will

Any showers on Saturday will be of an isolated nature, as the day wears on into the evening any showers will likely clear away so will hopefully be a good night! :)

As for our Xmas forecast, not sure there I'll ask Phil and hopefully he can get back to you! :)

iHoliday

Hi ! do you think it is a good time to go in the queens town this coming week?

Hi there Saturday looks

Hi there

Saturday looks mainly dry with a mix of sun and cloud, light to moderate northwesterly winds and temperatures getting into the high teens. Sunday may be a bit cloudier with the odd shower or spit possibly spreading from the west at times (mainly morning), mainly dry otherwise with highs once again in the high teens.

Hope that helps. Keep up to date here if you like:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Queenstown%2C%2520Otago

The temperatures there are off the boil by aout 3 degrees but most of the other info is good, mainly focus on the percentage rain chance in terms of if it will be wet or not.

Cheers
Aaron

thanks

i just wanted to say thanks for all your coverage of yesterdays nateral disaster (white island eruption) such a shocking event. and right before christmas too :(

Tropical storms

Hi Guys, After months of tropical winds are we more likely to see tropical storms affecting Northern NZ this summer. Regards Ross Wellsford.

Good morning Ross. You're

Good morning Ross. You're right about plenty of sub-tropical winds lately but most of these winds have been caused by large rain-blocking highs to our north and north west. While they remain there the rain in northern NZ from a tropical storm remains low. BUT, the positive news is that the highs are not constantly over us. In between highs there is a good chance for lows to form over NZ directly and pull down some sub-tropical rain (or create it over us). There's a higher chance of that happening in the next 10 days than any tropical storms. As for long term, always that chance - but the high pressure belt needs to be gone from the North Island area for this to happen.

Cheers

thunder

we had no thunder in auckland yesterday. will it thunder here again or is thunderstorms are becoming so rare in auckland that we may not see them are we getting the austrilian draught that caused a long time of no rain in austrilia and now we gonna ge no rain at all?

please answer my question

I am wondering why the whole country got storms auckland didnt. does that means we have to wait till next year now ?

Hi there, you need to focus

Hi there, you need to focus on certain words with thunderstorms. We said "isolated across the Upper North Island" for Sunday quite a few times. That means entire areas can miss out. It's hit and miss and usually inland areas like Northland and Waikato are better for making thunderstorms than very narrow/coastal Auckland. There may be more in the future, but our weather is chaotic in NZ so hard to forecast these things with detail in advance.

Cheers

WW

oh ok thanks

thanks alot. wellington had a good storm I hear considering they get lesser storms than auckland does. timaru had a bad storm. which appaprently lightning lasted all night and that storm is responsible for the damage. i feel dorry for those people affected

Looks like a calm patch in

Looks like a calm patch in regards to thunder for Auckland coming up. Some will eventually turn up again.

Aaron 

thanks

thanks i was so looking foward for a storm and nz as a whole got them but not auckland. which was not fair. dont you think. there was a storm northern auckland but never made it down south
