Meteor

Saw strange red glow this morning looking out towards Beachlands Maraetai area.
May have been the meteor as it looked very different from the usual sunrise.

wind

So very still in New Lynn, Flags hang limply.

-1?

Hi WW!

Is that overnight low for real? Very rare for us to get beolw zero!

EEK!

Yeah, I’m wondering that too?

Yeah,

I’m wondering that too? I'm guessing that is for rural Auckland.

Hi there - some inland parts

Hi there - some inland parts of urban Auckland have been down to -1 for the past few mornings.  Rural areas too. But coldest (and in summer our hottest) conditions are usually in West Auckland, like Henderson.

Frosts may be done now - slight risk tonight but conditions are generally trending warmer and cloudier now that the centre of the high has passed Auckland to our east - that means our southerly flow will start to turn northerly.

Cheers

Hi, hows Saturday the 14th of July looking?
Cheers, keep up the good work!

Hi there! It looks like it

Hi there!

It looks like it will be settled during the first half of the day.  Winds will increase and rain will become likely toward sunset.

Keep in mind though, that's a week off.  That's a very preliminary forecast.

Cheers, WW

 

Ah, so it looks like Friday

Ah, so it looks like Friday will be the last day for this fine weather we are having?

Foggy night

Was a very foggy last night in New Lynn and further South. We have wall to wall blue sky & sunshine a brisk SW wind blowing since 8:30:AM
Green Bay had fog for all of yesterday and last night, they are delighted to have sunshine today!

Frost

Hi Guys,

What chance is there of a frost overnight tonight (Friday 6th) in the Auckland area?

Could be close but probably

Could be close but probably not too likely - some sheltered valleys may receive a very light one with lows dropping down to around 3 degrees.

Cheers

WW

Fog

Hi There,

Have a 7am flight to Palmerston North tomorrow (Saturday) Morning From Auckland. What is the risk of Fog reoccurring for another day?

We have a 30% chance of fog

We have a 30% chance of fog tomorrow morning - the southerly breeze should be enough to keep it away but we can't rule it out completely. The good news is that even if fog does form we expect it to burn off fast.

Cheers

Hi, thanks for the wonderful forecast!! Glad to see some sunny days ahead:)

Ive got a new flight for 6pm tomorrow to christchurch will it be likely to be cancelled due to fog or storms?

You should be good to go for

You should be good to go for tomorrow evening. If fog is to happen again could be tonight / tomorrow morning but the risk is not as high this time.

- WW

Saturday morning!

Hi Guys - keep up the great work!!! What do you think the chances are of more fog Saturday morning please? We're doing the Wellington rellie run and can't afford to lose time!!

Not looking foggy at this

Not looking foggy at this stage due to south east winds picking up a bit.  Thanks for the support - and good luck from all of us!

Tomorrows Forecast

Hi there. What do you mean in tomorrows Auckland forecast by "risk of rain/showers increases the further you are.

Shane

Yes, good point Shane! 

Yes, good point Shane!  *whoops*

Fixed now - "further north" it should read :)

Fog patches

Right again, precise forecasting! fog patches showed around New Lynn during the night, gone by daybreak though.

Thanks for the feedback! 

Thanks for the feedback!  Really appreciate it

- WW

Don't think 16c possible

Don't think 16c possible either given the proximity to the bottom of the low with cooler air close.(currently around 12c).

15 degrees at two weather

15 degrees at two weather stations (Airport and Whenuapai) now and the sun's coming out so certainly possible - but some parts of the city may not reach above 14 due to local conditions.

- WW

Low tonight

Is your low for tonight really 12? Its 6.2 at our place at 10pm and still dropping!

Hi there, we just lowered it

Hi there, we just lowered it to 8 ..granted that is a big jump down from 12, but we thought the showers would arrive a little earlier than they did.  Will write a story in the near future on why temps can be so tricky - gives great perspective :)

8 is the general temp across the city this morning - some areas will be closer to 9 or 10, some may get down to 5.

Cheers

WW

Thanks, we ended up on 5.9 at 11pm and then back up to 9 by 2am.

Colour Map....

Hi guys My hard drive died last week and i lost all my websites.... and Last year on this site someone posted a link that was in colour etc and it had the Tropics and the Aussie East Coast and the top half of our North Island. I believe it was called something like Colourised Loop.... It was good for Tropical Cyclones etc...

If someone who has it could post that Link again that would be Awesome so i could re add it to my Bookmarks...

Thanks again

Hi Phil / Andrew,
That animation was interesting. How do we use it? Is that something we can use for forecasting?
Thanks,

Hi Billy Yep, it's basically

Hi Billy

Yep, it's basically just a satellite map - the reds and blacks show big clouds (heavy rain, thunderstorms, cyclones etc) the pale blue shows low cloud etc.  Quite useful in winter when we get that low cloud in Auckland - this imagery shows it over the Tasman Sea quite nicely.

Cheers
Phil

Snow

Are we going to see more snow down here in canterbury cheers
Rob.

Hi Rob - nothing to low

Hi Rob - nothing to low levels in the next few days but we have Canterbury as a high risk region for snow this winter (we had high risk last year too), so chances are you will see more snow - but unsure when.

- WW

Auckland Clouds

Magnificent sky colours and clouds around Auckland. Total cloud cover North of New Lynn. Clear with very few clouds South.

Tonight's Moon

Hi there,

There appears to be a very large light hazy ring in the sky around the moon tonight. Do you know what this is the cause of?

Forecast for 5th July

Hi WW,

What's the forecast looking like for next Thursday (5th July)? Planning a trip for quite a large group for Auckland Zoo and hoping for fine weather. There appears to be quite a varied opinion from various sites ranging from showers to clear with a very small amount of drizzle. If not Thursday, what day is looking good next week (if any!)?

Cheers,
JC

Models have flopped back to

Models have flopped back to the weather like this week.

I take it that hopefully

I take it that hopefully means fine spells coupled with brief periods of showers or light drizzle on the Thursday? How much precipitation is expected? I guess that's as good as we're going to get at this time of year.

Thanks for your responses. You guys do an absolutely amazing job. Keep up the great work!

Our pleasure - thanks for the

Our pleasure - thanks for the positive feedback!

Think there's a potential for heavier showers - but really the models are chopping and changing.  Will have a good idea by Sunday night probably, so ask again then if you like.

Have a good weekend!
