Hi there, we are making

Hi there, we are making improvements to the way we display rainfall in the near future. It's not the best at the moment we admit, just working on the changes now and hope to have something better to display in the next few months.

Otago

I'd love to live in Otago with low humidities, but the wife won't wear it!

Palmerston, OTAGO

When looking for Palmerston it seems to bring up the Palmy North forecast, thats in the rural site. Should it bring up Palmerston OTAGO? Cheers Mark

Hey Mark, hmm you may be the

Hey Mark, hmm you may be the first to stump us with a true bug! Agreed it is not showing up. So, in the meantime, can you please try clicking on this icon (see attached image) with the red arrow - this green icon is basically the "find me" button. If that also doesn't work let us know so we can quickly figure out a work around for you! Another temporary option is try another nearby locations like Bushey or Glenpark.

thunder

how bad will the thunderstorms be . and what size is the hail gonna be? just wondering.

If any hail it will be very

If any hail it will be very small. When it comes to thunder, it's currently more north of Auckland so (for now anyway) we've removed it from our forecast. It is still possible though, but any thunder in Auckland today looks to be fairly short lived and isolated. We'll be updating our Auckland forecast if this at all changes as we're basically live tracking today's weather.

Cheers

WW

thunder

I love it when thunderstorms are in the forecast. will it be a bad one?

Subtropical Noreasters in Auckland

Sick of the noreasters already, tropical humid rain, 16 deg nights for the last 2 nights and its only September. Doesn't bode well for summer for us humidity haters in the north. Aug/Sept has certainly made up for the dryish previous 7 months - 210mm of rain at Muriwai in the past month...

I agree! I hate the humid Nor

Sounds good!

Only one can be right. We

Only one can be right. :) Not sure where you are precisely but no thunderstorms in the upper North Island in the past hour and none seem to be forming at this stage.

tommorow there is a better risk of thunser cool. i know it may or may not happen. but i will keep a look out.

Hi there

Please feel free to use these maps, they will keep you updated with the latest information as to whether high pressure is due for the North Island coming up :)

Suffice to say there doesn't look to be much high pressure about for the first half of September.

A chance definitely exisits, mainly in the afternoon. It's a really hit and miss situation so you may or may not. Apologies we can't be any more exact.

WW

oh yep thanks

thanks theres a lot of lightning at northland at the moment. so . and trees have blown down from the wind.

Rotorua

Thinking of popping down to Rotorua on Saturday for some mountain biking - is there likely to be much rain on Friday and Saturday do you think?

Hi there Looks showery on

Hi there

Looks showery on Friday, dry spells may start to increase from late afternoon on Friday. Saturday looks drier, a mix of sun and cloud with southwesterly winds, later in the evening showers or some rain develops.

Keep up to date here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Rotorua

You got the right prediction bang on. Many thanks had a great time.

Data included in the forecast

Hi there, I've always admired the accuracy of your forecast, but find myself always having to look at Metservice afterwards. This is because while it is one thing to know the probability of rain at any given time of day, it is equally important to know how much of it is likely. E.g. 90% probability of 0.2mm precipitation is far less significant for being outdoors than a 50% chance of a 6mm downpour! Is this something you can/are likely to include in your forecasts? Cheers

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the comment and yes we are working towards having more rainfall data appear in our forecasts. You may like our new website: www.RuralWeather.co.nz which has fantastic visual rainfall graphs and hourly amounts too. We hope to add more bells and whistles in 2020 :)

Cheers
WW Team

Thanks for the reponse

Nice one, thank you. Even just a qualitative description of how much rain is to be expected will be a great start. Cheers.

SSW event

I keep hearing the SSW event above Antarctica being referred to as the "Beast from the East". Do you know why that name is used for it? Surely any impact on our weather will be from the South or West? Is it just another example of our media using terminology from overseas events that isn't really relevant to us?

Hi there, yes good question!

Hi there, yes good question! Newshub has just published this story with our views on it - you'll find it interesting I think, definitely Niwa are seeking click bait with that "beast from the east" nonsense:  www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/08/sudden-stratospheric-warming-forecaster-rubbishes-predictions-nz-will-be-hit-by-polar-blast.html

Low pressure system

Hi there, I wonder how much rain we will get from the low pressure system next week Wednesday

This map here

This map here http://wxmaps.org/pix/prec7 (the one at the bottom) suggests most of the North Island will have average rainfall for the next 10 days but parts of the east coast, Coromandel / Waikato / southern Auckland and perhaps northern Northland will be just over average.

So there you go..... As for actual specifics that depends exactly where you are.

Hope the above helps.

springtime in Dunedin

Hi WW team Would you have a rough guess on when the nighttime lows in Dunedin will reach at least a consistant 10?? I'm a bit over single digit lows. Even a rough guess from WW is more accurate than where our taxes go to. Cheers Indy

Hi Indy, great question and

Hi Indy, great question and you have a little longer to go just yet. We are seeing overnight lows creep up in Dunedin just a little bit, bit 7 degrees looks fairly normal in the week ahead, but cooler winds end of next week and next weekend will likely drop them back down into the lower single digits. Typically the windier westerlies later in September tend to push your lows into double digits more often. Good luck!

Cheers

Phil D

By the way, you see see temperature trends, including the 'feels like' temperatures, for Dunedin for the next 10 days here in our new weather data page: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/rural/Dunedin

Hello Phil Thank you for the

Hi there Kieng, we're

Hi there Kieng, we're basically heading into that perfect windy season right now! This weekend won't be so good though with a lot of high pressure - same with early next week. But later next week, next weekend and likely the several weeks following should see a number of windy days. Have fun!

Cheers

Good morning, we've placed a block on this site so hopefully a nearby one is showing up for you now (or soon). If not, please do let us know. Also, a side note, we're also aware of a glitch with the times of updating in some weather station at the moment and IBM are already working on this.

Cheers!

Hamilton weather site current temps not working

Hi, just letting you know the Hamilton current temperature reading has not been showing a reading for a few days now. Thanks

Thanks for this. On our

Thanks for this. On our observations page we can see it's missing, but just wondering if the website is showing you a specific Station ID that we can search deeper into?

Thanks a lot for letting us know - with hundreds of live stations across NZ there is always one that is giving us some work to sort - the positive is that we often have a nearby one we can switch to :)

Sun Dog 27 August 2019

Hello I have never seen this before. In the Rangiora Countdown carpark looking west. Amazing.near 5pm 27 August 2019.a 2nd sun to the left of the real sun and a small rainbow. Did anyone get a good photo shot of this? Helen Walker pmh.walker81@gmail.com

Hi Helen, yes we got this

best forecasters ever

you guys are the best fore casters ever. The stratospheric warming they forecasting Im not taking that seriously. i think your forecast is the right one. keep up the good work.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the support :) To be clear we aren't saying it isn't happening, we're saying there is currently no direct link to NZ's weather forecast that matches any of the big headlines and comments we've seen elsewhere! For now spring is looking very ...springy!  Cheers, WW

What is this stratospheric

What is this stratospheric warming?? Is it something to be worried about?

Hi there, the news coverage

Hi there, the news coverage of this event has been quite confusing - this is one of the problems when we have two government forecasters now competing against each other to be in the news. Basically it's a significant event in Antarctica that can lead to some polar outbreaks over the Southern Ocean and potentially beyond. At this stage there is no polar blast forecast for NZ though, but we do expect the usual spring chaos (mild sunny days mixed in with some cold wet, wintry days) as we go into September.  The coverage has been a bit over the top as many news outlets made it sound like a major winter blast was coming but Niwa hasn't given any specific winter forecast for any regions. People should always be concerned about spring weather patterns, but so far nothing to be specifically worried about. Keep up to date with our news website, if anything major is on the horizon we usually give a good week or two warning - along with our 10 day forecasts. :)

Cheers

WW

PS. In NZ the official Government forecast agency is MetService, not Niwa. 

Weather station location

Hi, where's your weather station for Whangarei located? Scott.

Hey Scott, it depends on

Hey Scott, it depends on where you are! We have quite a few around Whangarei. You'll find your Current/NOW temperature should have a Station ID next to it, if there's any problems with it just quote us that Station ID and we can look into it, or block it.  Check here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/observations
