Saturday

Hi Folks,

Saturday forecast has been changing quite a lot, and very weather website has a different forecast. However I have always believed that WW has way better prediction than others, do you guys reckon it would rain all day on Saturday or just around evening? Thanks

Hi there - more and more

Hi there - more and more Saturday is looking dry - and Sunday and Monday are only borderline for Auckland - with the bulk of the rain expected to be to the east.  Heavy rain is possible with the centre of Evan passing over around Monday/Tuesday - so keep checking the forecasts, they will change a bit more probably, but Saturday is looking mostly dry all day, slight risk of showers at night.

Cheers
Phil

Evan

Are we still looking at getting some rain from Evan? looking at your forecast for the weekend and monday not so sure anymore? some rain would be nice on the farm in South Auckland, Cheers keep up the good work.

Auckland forecast

hi guys,

Your forecast today for Friday and Saturday looks good. Are you seeing it will not change ( for worst ) as we are planning to go up to Auckland?

Thanks

Forecast Accuracy

Hi guys good work you are the only site showing fog this morning.

Saturday

Hi Guys,

Firstly, thanks for all the AWESOME WORK you guys do :)

I have a outdoor event planned this Saturday till about 6:00 pm. The forecast for Saturday looks really confusing as Metservice predicts a really wet day and you guys predict a "chance of a shower".
Now what are the chances of Saturday being a completely wet or dry as off now?

Saturday is a very tough call at this point

It all depends on Evan's track.  Right now, it looks pretty wet in the afternoon, easing a bit in the evening.  However, the current track of Evan puts Auckland right on the edge of the longer-lasting precip.  That means a deviation in Evan's forecast track of even 30km would drastically change the forecast.

Stay tuned...we will keep you updated.

Cheers
Howard 

Thanks a lot

Cheers for the update mate, well my event is planned from 1:00 pm till about 6:00 pm. Hopefully it stays dry for that period :)

Looking forward for the updates.

THANKS

Sunday?

Is Sunday having a bad rainfall throughout the day ??

Rain all day looks likely, heavy stuff should be afternoon only

 But the track and timing of Evan means everything.  It's only Tuesday and Evan has a long way to go.  So it's very difficult to nail down a detailed and accurate forecast that we can have a lot of confidence in.

But we will track Evan carefully and keep you updated

Cheers
Howard

Cyclone Evan

Hi Philip
What site is best to track the progress of this cyclone? Is there a map rather than just stellite imagery?
Cheers
Philip

Hi Philip, Well we'd say our

Hi Philip,

Well we'd say our site is the best! But in this part of the world it's very hard to find decent mapping, which is why we try to collate it all in one place.  Fiji Met Service provide some maps (which we usually display here).  JTWC is another source if you can find it and some big weather websites, like weather.com, may also have some maps and products available on it.

Cheers
WW

Christmas Day forecast!!

Met service at this stage reckon is going to be overcast, possibly wet. I'm going with you guy! I'm hoping for a fine day in the Auckland region

Christmas Day Forecast?

Are you willing to put your reputation on the line yet :)

Way too early for a solid forecast

The further out we forecast, the more likely chances will need to be made by the time we get to the particular day.  It's like when someone estimates their travel time.  If someone is driving from Hamilton to Te Awamutu, they can "forecast" their time of arrival pretty accurately.

But, if someone drives from Whangarei to Wellington, they can make a preliminary estimate when they leave.  But will then likely have to adjust that time of arrival several times before you get there.

Right now Christmas Day looks pretty typical for Auckland.  Sunshine with afternoon clouds bubbling up and a slight chance for a few showers.  Highs will probably be in the mid 20s.

But be sure to check back with us as this is almost certainly going to need to be adjusted as new information becomes avaiable.

Cheers
WW 

Hi WW, The maps for the 25th

Hi WW,

The maps for the 25th of December show ex-tropical cyclone Evan right over the North Island. Is there a chance this may be the weather for Christmas day?

Regards from a worried Aucklander :(

Your seeing the same as I'm

Your seeing the same as I'm seeing, beyond this I have no further information :)

Is always a chance so something to be weary of but it is a long way off yet so may well change.

Hopefully your school show pulls off ok fingers crossed!

Android / iPhone App

Hey guys, fantastic site. Just wondering, are there any plans in the pipeline to get a Android / iPhone app up and running. It would be a great compliment to this site, and a weather app concentrating only on New Zealand weather would be good.

Hi there There is a free app

Hi there

There is a free app in the works and on the way next year. Keep your eye's peeled :)

Stormy weather

What prospect of getting the heavy rain in South Auckland today. Sky is very dark here in Manukau City and heard a thunder clap a few mins ago but no rain yet.

Lightning displays

Been lightning South West of New Lynn and plenty of thunder. A few large drops of rain speckled the ground in North New Lynn.

Back to solid SW

Back to solid SW forecast,this will be worse than last summer....

Oh no

really?

Why are people so bloody

Why are people so bloody negative! its been 5 days of Summer so far!! Give it at least a couple of weeks. And its only a few days with SW and with that comes sunshine. Geeeeez!

Oh dear!

Thanks for the info on the wind - very interesting and explains why it's usually nicer here than Wgtn! (I'm from there!) Is it really going to be quite wet over the weekend? - the washing is piling up after a weekend away!

Hi thereNot sure what your

Hi there

Not sure what your looking at exactly regrading the weekend, this coming weeking in Auckland isn't looking too bad at this stage. Sunny areas and some cloud with southwesterly breezes generally.

Cheers
Aaron

10PM update:  Hi there, could be a remaining shower on Saturday (some fresh data) but it all depends on the incoming high.  If the high is as strong as the models suggest then it should push the showers away earlier - if it lags (which it sometimes does for Auckland, always a bit 50/50!) then we can get a few showers and a cloudier and windier day than anticipated.  Keep checking for updates - we'll certainly know by Thursday
- Phil

18 degrees in December! Argh

18 degrees in December! Argh :(

I suppose its a bit better than the one day last year we only got to 15 though!

Wind at Night

Hi Guys

I have recently taken up paddle boarding so I am taking an interest in what the wind is doing as lighter winds are always much more pleasant.

Why is it that that the wind often drops off significantly at night only to return again during the day. I understand the heating and cooling of the land would create sea breezes but I would have though the weather systems coming over our country would have much more of an influence and would remain steady overnight. Maybe it's just all in my head but it always seems to be calmer at night.

Your maps page is great by the way. I check them daily.

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for your email - and for the support of our site!

During the day the sun really does add a massive amount of energy to our atmosphere - small clouds can become severe thunderstorms, the temperature can rocket and - especially here in Auckland - the winds can pick up.  With such narrow land and so much sea it makes sense that we have a breeze most days.  The sun is pretty much firing things up as the earth spins - so when we have little cloud cover especially, the winds can get up and really become quite strong - then eases after sunset as the earth cools and the sea regulates our weather here in Auckland - helping to keep things as steady as possible.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Phil

GEM OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

Yet another glorious Auckland spring/summer day...we must be the gem of the South Pacific!!!!

You must be in Hawaii looking

You must be in Hawaii looking at a picture card of the skytower :-)

Monday 10th Dec

What does it look like wind and weather wise for next monday. I have tried looking at your maps but they only seem to go up till Wednesday.

Thanks

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage we're expecting dry weather for Monday, a 30% chance of a few showers on Tuesday then settled for Wednesday.  Our maps should be working out for 2 weeks so hopefully next you check it's operational!

Cheers,

Upped wind speed every time

Upped wind speed every time ,friday was 30kmph,last night 40 now its 45kmph,maybe 50 when it occurs.

 We always knew Friday would

 We always knew Friday would be windy (had that in our prediction as early as Sunday) however the finer details of exactly how strong sometimes can't be worked out until much closer to the time.   A bit like showers - we can see them several days out sometimes, but sometimes only up until the day do we know how many there will be.

Cheers
