G'day there Saturday looks to

G'day there

Saturday looks to be a mix of sun and cloud at this stage, mainly dry with only the small risk of a shower or two. Winds from the south. Not terribly warm with a high of 10 degrees.

The unexpected rain

Hi Guys, thanks for the fascinating item on your news page of why we have unexpected rain in Auckland today! Keep up the brilliant work!

Thanks very much :)  - WW

Thanks very much :)

Where has all this heavy rain

Where has all this heavy rain come from? Right now in Auckland it's pouring down with rain and yet the forecast doesn't even say anything about it. Not very happy about it. Forecasting needs to be improved.

Hi there, for the next 3 days

Hi there, for the next 3 days there is a SE wind flow across the North Island that will produce a fair bit of dry weather in Auckland but also some areas of rain and showers. Last evening there were some beautiful ares of high cloud but also some darker clouds which could suddenly produce rain. These showers will be randomly popping up without warning - SE wind flows are dry for Auckland most often but a slight shift to ESE can produce rain. We're an entirely free public service, you have other options in NZ - like MetService, NIWA and MetOcean which are all forecasters your taxes pay for/own.

Cheers
Phil D

You can please some of the people some of the time...

Why anybody would complain about such a brilliant forecasting service is a mystery. By the way, thos rain is missing my black bamboos, would you please shift the wind to slightly more easterly? Many thanks.

Sunday afternoon - forecasts vary depending on who your look at.

Hi Aaron I am liking your Sunday forecast as we have an outdoor farewell planned in Auckland! However, my friend, who is yet to be a WeatherWatch convert tells me other met services are forecasting showers in the afternoon. Is the variability in the forecasts due to different models of forecasting your team is using compared to others? Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi there, fair question! The

Hi there, fair question! The wind flow over the North Island for Saturday, Sunday and Monday is one that encourages rain in the east but dry in the west. In set ups like this Auckland can be both dry and wet so forecasts vary. Forecasting comes down to trusting certain models plus the forecaster's gut instinct, memory and local knowledge - and is why we all interpret models differently sometimes. For now Sunday afternoon looks dry but it may change - keep an eye on our HOURLY forecasts for Sunday as well as that shows % of rain which is helpful to work out if the risk for wet weather jumps anywhere. We'll also be updating regularly today and tomorrow as we track this weather. Sorry we can't be more definitive but showers in these set ups are hard to forecast too far in advance.

Cheers
Phil D

P.S Glad you're a convert! :) 

Averages

Do you hold averages for Waiuku? Average rainfall for each month, in particular, but average, lowest and highest temps would be good, too.

Hi there That is something

Hi there

That is something you will have to go to NIWA or Metservice for, apologies we can't help in that regard at the moment.

Cheers

Rainfall in Taipuha Northland

As per Phil's video today requesting information on the amount of rainfall various areas received. I was surprised to see my rain gauge full at 30 mils. Paddocks are turning green as I watch!

Weather 28 March 2019

Hi Could you please tell me what the weather was like in Tauranga on the 28th of March 2019

Hi there Best bet is to go

Hi there

Best bet is to go here: https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/tauranga

Scroll down and you can see some information on past weather. On the 28th it looks like there was 2.6mm of precipitation, 18 degrees was the low, 22 degrees was the high, the peak wind gust for the day was 31 km/h from the north.

Going by those temperature figures I'm taking a punt it was a fairly cloudy day, perhaps the odd light shower or drizzle patch about.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Rainfall

Last night at 3.00 am approx, I was woken by torrential rain that lasted about 15 minutes and there was also thunder. No recorded rain has shown up at all, why is this please? I live in England street Linwood at the Woodham road end.

Yes I saw that shower / area

Yes I saw that shower / area of rain move over Chch then. It was an unstable pocket of air that moved up and delivered that heavy precipitation. It might have missed the raingauge at Christchurch airport therefore no record showed up, it was fairly isolated.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi, thanks for the reply. I

Hi, thanks for the reply. I thought that there'd be a closer weather station than the airport one as I specifically clicked on the Linwood Weater Watch.

There does look to be a few

There does look to be a few stations closer to you than the airport one. Perhaps they missed out on the shower or didn't have rainfall measuring equipment? Most of the stations on the WW observation page are run by amateurs / hobbyists and at times there is a chance a few may not be accurate.

Te Aroha Weather

Hi There Any idea of the weather for this Saturday in Te Aroha as we have a horse running and she does not like it too wet??

G'day! Saturday looks like a

G'day!

Saturday looks like a sunny day for Te Aroha, winds from the southeast. Afternoon temperatures in the high teens, perhaps early twenties if you are lucky.

Have a good one! :)

Long range forecast guess?

Hello there I was wondering if it would be too far down the track to get a rough guess as to the weather in Dunedin on the 17th of April. A shifting of flats (bigger and quieter for study) is in my forecast. Here's hoping for good weather. Cheers Dee

Hi Dee Yes unfortunately

Hi Dee

Yes unfortunately that's a bit too far into the future. Come back and ask say 10 or perhaps 7 days out, might start to have an idea then. :)

Cheers
Aaron

Hello Aaron and the

Hello Aaron and the Team. Thank you for your forecast on the date-in-question. The moving date looks like it will be perfect. Thank you for your accuracy. Dee

where is the rain?

So far since hearing that the South had torrential rain and floods and that we would get some of it North Island further up Auckland area across the bridge. Weds morning we had a glimmer of wetness very early and nothing since but plenty of clouds! Does this mean we will not be getting the same as South this week? Any possibility when? Carole

Good morning Carole, you

Good morning Carole, you should watch our videos as all week we've been the only forecasting saying not much will come from the South Island rain band as it moves northwards. We're also now working with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), Waikato Regional Council, Fonterra, Dairy NZ, Auckland Council and other stakeholders in the upper North Island on a weekly basis to discuss how dry it is - I share with you what I discussed with them in the latest video we have including upcoming = rainfall maps. Basically my entire videos are about upcoming rainfall so keep an eye on them daily Mon-Fri for the full details. We don't take any forecasts from MetService or NIWA, we're entire independent. :) 

Have a good weekend
Cheers
Phil D 

Sunny spells

Do sunny spells have blue sky for Auckland on the weekend?

May be fairly cloudy at times

May be fairly cloudy at times but you should see some blue sky too. We have some right now finally too!

Auckland

How will the weather be on the West Coast of Auckland on Saturday? Will the showers be squally? Will it be super windy? Will it still be a dry day for a wedding? Thanks so much for answering all my questions :)

Hi there No squally showers

Hi there

No squally showers or super strong winds. Just a moderate east to northeast breeze. There may be a few showers but mainly in the afternoon, expect many dry areas between showers.

Hope your day goes well :)

WW

Rain

When is South Otago likely to get any substantial rain? thanks.

Hey there, it looks like you

Hey there, it looks like you may get 20 to 30mm over the coming week. It does look a little hit and miss though. Goes dry again after Wednesday next week for a time then more rain possible in Week 2 of April.

Cheers

WW

Here's the 7 days rainfall accumulation map for the lower South Island (Until April 3)

Weekend

Hi phil/Aaron Apologies as I know a lot of people are enquiring about this Saturday. I love your work and go what you guys predict. Met service and Niwa are predicting a few showers in the afternoon. I’m really hoping you guys are right and it’s a day of sun with cloud and a low risk of a passing shower. How confident are you of this set up? Really love your work given you are free service. Keep it up there are loads that appreciate you. Not all heroes wear capes

Hi there, not sure where

Hi there, not sure where specifically you are but guessing you're asking about Auckland? Saturday sees a few showers caught up in an easterly flow over the city. It looks mostly dry at this stage, but the nature of showers means they are hit and miss for wherever you are. Generally it doesn't look overly wet and Sunday looks drier still. Keep an eye on our HOURLY forecasts over the weekend as they help with the % of rain and anything over 60% is a much greater chance of being wet. Hope you have a great weekend, let us know if you need more help.

Cheers for the message and great support! :)

Trip up north

Paihia Thurs - Sat, this week

Hey Team, Love you work! We're heading upto Paihia this Thurs. Im reading reports there is rain forecasted for most of the country. We want to do a Dolphin Cruise and were wondering out of Fri or Sat which day would be best? Maybe even Thurs if they are both rubbish. Thanks in advance. AJ

Saturday looks to be the

Saturday looks to be the better day at this stage, still the risk of a shower about but it should be mainly dry overall.

Have a good one! :)

weather

I go onto this weather forecast site to find out what my local weather is doing why is nz's weather not the main focus. It bloody well should be. Boyd Tisdall

Hi Boyd, we have over 2000

Hi Boyd, we have over 2000 detailed forecast locations for all of NZ, compared to around 100 which you help tax fund at MetServiec and NIWA. We have vidoes about NZ, mutiple daily news stories about NZ and specially made infographics - and this weekend we have a couple of big cyclones hitting Australia which we are covering as they are in our area (While NZ's weather is very quiet).

We're an entirely free service and for over 10 years we have covered storms around the Pacific Rim. Kind regards and thanks for choosing to use our free service over the ones you pay for in your taxes.

Philip Duncan.

Kerikeri

So, beach this morning or beach this arvo?? Have to work around kids' nap time! Will predicted showers be earlier or later arvo? Ta

Hi there, looks dry this

Hi there, looks dry this morning but may be an isolated inland shower this afternoon. Keep an eye on the sky as you'll probably be able to quite clearly see if it's going to be dry and where the big cloud build ups may be. For now all the showers are offshore and moving away from you but the afternoon shower may be a new one that forms inland.

Hope that helps - have a great day :)

fog

its foggy in auckland today. it was not forecast

Fog is simply cloud at ground

Fog is simply cloud at ground level and sometimes it can surprise us - we can't forecast every cloud above us so sometimes fog can be the same when it quickly forms. You'll be pleased to know we are working on a new fog forecast product which we may release as an entirely free service for all NZers in the near future (ie, later this year).  A work in progress seeing as neither MetService nor NIWA share any realtime open data (and NZers are made to fund them both, not fund WeatherWatch). 

Cheers
