Weather Station Location

I'm checking the drift on my barometer attached to my Lung function testing device. Usually clings to your reading, lately moved away. Your readings are great.

Four digit numbers

Hi WW I've noticed when Philip is reading the weather forecast, on the map you can see the isobars as solid lines with the air pressure nicely indicated, but there are some other lines appearing as dashes which have four digit numbers begging with 5. Love to know what's happening there thanks

G'day thereThey are

G'day there

They are thickness lines. It literally means what it says, it represents the thickness of the atmosphere. In most cases and in these maps with Phil it's between the 1000mb and 500mb level, these levels do fluctuate. When the atmosphere is warm the thickness is often greater in value, when it's very cold it's lower in value.

Here's some more info: www.weather.gov/jetstream/thickness

Hope that helps!

Wind

Will the wind die down today for my bike ride?

Hi there, take a look at our

Hi there, take a look at our special hourly forecasts it will show you the wind speed and if it's going up or down. Generally we're expecting winds to pick up a little further this afternoon, then easing back a little this evening.

Cheers and all the best for the bike ride!

Polar spring

What is this rare polar event met service is telling us about that might create a cold spring for september 2019?

Hi there, we don't closely

Hi there, we don't closely monitor their long range forecasts as they are often unhelpful. We do know we have some changes south of NZ affecting our pattern right now (why we are getting more lows and SW winds) but nothing yet jumping out as any major polar changes. In fact even with a southerly change coming in tonight both Friday and Saturday afternoons still look warmer than average in many parts of NZ.

Cheers

WW

hail

does the hail risk ease this afternoon cause in tonight it says hail again.

Hi there, no we have removed

Hi there, no we have removed that now. For a time we wondered if a little surge of heavy showers might come in with the southerly but that doesn't look likely now. 

Cheers,

WW

nice

I love thunder :D

so do i

so do i. we are in for a thundary night tonight by the looks of things.

Hi there, not looking too

Hi there, not looking too active at the moment. A few isolated thunderstorms around though. We're not forecasting them as much as others are. Keep an eye on the lightning tracker though :)

Cheers
WW

I am

I am as I know the risk is for the whole night. metservice even has a severe thunderstorm watch.

Me too

I love them also, but WW was right for last night. Hopefully better odds Fri arvo/evening!

Board trip

Hey guys, we’re wondering what the weather will be like for our board trip flight in tomorrow?! Thanks!

Hi there I'm not sure where

Hi there

I'm not sure where you are talking about. One bit of advise I can give is if it's not safe to fly they won't put you in the air so there you go :D

Cheers

thunderstorms

are we going o have thunderstorms and hail in auckland tommorow cause thats what metservice is forecasting.

Hi there, yes we have a risk

Hi there, yes we have a risk of thunder and hail. Our latest weather video which will be up later this morning explains the risks. We also have special maps on our homepage news section right now showing the thunderstorm risks for the next few days ahead.

Cheers

WW

thanks

thanks this month has sure been a rainy and thundary month. tornadoes have been in the mix too.

Yes definitely feels like an

Yes definitely feels like an early spring weather pattern now, the windy westerlies and thunderstorms/squalls and hail have certainly made for a different month of weather in August compared with June and July

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all the great work you do, you are definitely the most accurate and enjoyable forecasters. Was just wondering what you make of all the talk about an upcoming SSW? Niwa have come out and said it will make for a stormy next few months. What are we to make of this? Thanks.

Hi there, NIWA has a

Hi there, NIWA has a reputation for being as accurate as the flip of a coin for seasonal forecasting. Basically they are saying spring will be stormy...that's pretty normal! It does seem more unsettled now than it was a month ago, but also some signs we have some incoming calm also, thanks to big highs in the mix too (next week doesn't look too bad at this stage, for example). We focus on monthly outlooks as seasonal in NZ can be a bit laughable at times. :) Cheers for your support and kind message, we really appreciate it.

Coming Spring/Summer

Hello, First of all, thank you so much for bringing us quality weather reports, I prefer WW much over compared to Metserv. Do you guys think Auckland will be having a warmer than normal temperature coming this Spring/Summer? Thanks!

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for the support and kind words, they mean a great deal to us! At this stage we see normal to above normal temperatures coming in for Auckland. A little cooler in the days ahead but next week looks quite pleasant at times. As for summer, too far out to know but global trends (and even NZ trends) have been showing some warmer than average set ups for the past few years. We'll have more details about September's outlook later next week :)

Cheers!

Next weekend

Hi there, what is the weekend of 30th looking like in Raglan? Cheers.

Hi there That's 10 to 11 days

Hi there

That's 10 to 11 days away so anything I say now will more then likely change by the time the 30th comes around, becomes a little redundant.

However in saying that this is what I'm seeing currently. Friday has some rain gradually clearing away. Sat and Sun have areas of cloud, perhaps some sun, perhaps even the risk of a light shower or two otherwise mainly dry, winds moderate from the southwest.

But yeah, this will most likely change.

Cheers
Aaron

thunder

I want to know what caused that big thunderclap and lightning last night. It wasnt even forecast. so Im confused. And your forecast said showers clearing afternoon. its still raining.

Hi there Not sure regarding

Hi there

Not sure regarding last night sorry, I personally wasn't on board then.

As for today you are right, initial modeling showed showers clearing this afternoon but clearly they nearly hung around till evening. Just a choatic day where not everything went to plan, it happens sometimes :(

Cheers
Aaron

as alright

its ok i think you were watching the game ehrn the unexpected thunder/lightning struck. it was only one time but was extremly loud shook my house . alarms went off. its sure has been a thundary month.

huge thunder

lightning struck near my house and the thunder just scared the heck out of me. I am in farm cove east auckland and it scared the heck out of me

East Auck thunder

It was scary, we are in Highland Park. Never seen lightening that lit up the house, followed by such a boom of thunder overhead that the house shook and car alarms went off. Then nothing!

thunder

wow. how exicting is that your now forecasting thunder. when it hasnt been forecasted today whys that

Hi there, when the long range

Hi there, when the long range thunderstorm risk is low or isolated it's not usually put into the forecasts as otherwise people tend to focus on it as the main thing. Even this risk is quite low end risk, just wanted to mention it due to the recent thunderstorms. For the most part they are weakening already but there just may be a few isolated flashes here and there.

- WW

Are there bad thunderstorms

Are there bad thunderstorms coming next week for Auckland? Like ones with the tornados?

I hope not

I hope not. we already got tornadoes in auckland from recent storms

Hi there, it's not in our

Hi there, it's not in our forecast at this stage,keep an eye on the daily tax funded Thunderstorm Outlook at MetService too. 

Cheers
WW

high pressure

next week you say high pressure sets in when your forecaast for thurday 22nd,friday23rd and saturday24th has thunder forecast. so the high pressure wont be around much. it will be gone and another low sets in?

Hi there, yes correct the

Hi there, yes correct the high that comes in next week doesn't last long. We get a southerly towards the end of next week then it may start to ease again by next weekend. Won't be able to lock in until Monday.

Warm Lambs

Love that photo, thank you for sharing it.

When will it stop raining in Auckland?

When will it stop raining in Auckland? Seems like the whole of August is just wet

Feel free to check out our

Feel free to check out our Auckland forecasts, we update them every day. Might give some insight into what is happening for Auckland re rain or dry weather coming up.

Auckland being where it is can often get rain or showers due to nothing blocking weather coming in from the west where most of out weather comes from. The east coast of NZ is protected by mountains to the west so naturally anyone out east can experience nice sunny / dry days more often but often nights are colder.

Cheers
Aaron

Out east its milder lol

Aaron I live at the moutain range between opotiki and gisborne 632 metres above sea level and its bleak, has been for 4 months, not much rain just lots of cold draughty wind. Just wish the wind would stop. Theres been enough sun to operate my solar panels. Just the wind Brrrr mostly from the northwest. With this current southerly gisbornes finally getting a dose of winter, everyones been wearing summer clothes there. And its only 6 weeks till daylight savings. Matawai, Matawai Chris.
