Cheers mate!! Hahaha

Cheers mate!! Hahaha Metservice had us buried at the end of the week. You guys ROCK at WW !!

I live in Auckland, the

I live in Auckland, the videos that you have on here make the weather look very dramatic... I like to know if this week into the weekend will there be any storms like there was back last month with the multiple power cuts etc? Is the weather going to be like that?

Hi there No, the weather

Hi there

No, the weather won't be like that. Rain later on Sunday associated with a front may be heavy and winds strong from the northwest however.

Monday next week could see quite strong to gale southwesterly winds for Auckland however so will be something to keep an eye on.

Cheers
Aaron

OK thank you but nothing like

OK thank you but nothing like the weather from that storm in April? Also are we likely to see severe rain?

Based on probabilities of two

Based on probabilities of two events happening so close to each other I would say most likely not like the storm in April. No severe rain looking likely for Auckland either overall but sometimes isolated downpours from the likes of thunderstorms could bring a brief period of severe rain to isolated areas. The weather isn't exactly black and white at times, answers are often a bit grey unfortunately.

Cheers
Aaron

Weather

Hi there, Was wondering if it’s meant to be stormy in Auckland this week into weekend is it?

Hi there There will be

Hi there

There will be showery weather at times this week and into the weekend. Tuesday may see an isolated downpour or two.

As a front pushes through on Wednesday showers could be heavy in the afternoon for a time. Thursday sees gusty southwesterly winds, perhaps strong at times in the morning then easing from afternoon.

Saturday may see the return of the odd isolated heavy shower then a front later on Sunday / overnight could bring a spell of heavy rain for a time.

Cheers
Aaron

Are these normal temperatures for the month of May for NZ?

It seems to be quite hot for the month of May, last year it was far colder in the month.

Hi there That question could

Hi there

That question could have many answers, but yes in general it seems to have been warmer so far this month then it was last year at this time. But many in the South Island will certainly be thinking it's a cold day today.

Rain North Island Saturday - Northern Explorer Rail trip

Hi We are taking the Northern Explorer from Auckland to Wellington on Saturday. Sounds like a lot of the North Island is going to have heavy rain. Is all of the North Island expecting rain Saturday? we are wondering if we are going to be able to enjoy the scenery ? Thanks

Hi there, sounds like a great

Hi there, sounds like a great day planned and at least you'll be on the railway tracks and not having to worry about bad drivers holding you up! There is a fair bit of rain around but it's not solid rain all the way from Auckland to Wellington (it's mostly the upper part of the North Island). So we hope you get a good mix of dry areas and higher level clouds for good views. In fact more than half of your trip may well be dry (wettest in Auckland and Waikato). All the best and we hope you get plenty of great photo ops! 

Cheers

Total rainfal for month of May in Milford Sound

Hi. I am trying to figure out the estimated total rainfal for the month of May for Milford Sound in mm. Please can you help

Hi there You can find this

Hi there

You can find this info out here: http://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/milford-sound

Just scroll down the page for historical information. May isn't over yet also for 2018 so the only figure is for last May in 2017 which was 306mm.

Hope that helps :)

Autumn warmth & humidity

Even though we are only 6 odd weeks from winter solstice, temp's here in NW Akl are still around 19/20 every day, overnight lows 14 - 17deg, which is still pretty summer like. Noticeable is high humidity, each year its getting higher, and tropical deluges with any northerly system. Beginning to really hate a northerly now! Problem is none of the little bugs/sandflies/midges/fruitflies are being killed off due to constant humid conditions.. Fruit trees have all blossomed again after harvest - Climate change!!!

Enjoy it. Sounds lovely. Oh,

Enjoy it. Sounds lovely. Oh, and 'climate change' has been around since dirt was new. It's called Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, with occasional variances. Nothing is as perfect as you would like. Winter will be here soon. Enjoy the Summer stuff while you can...and be grateful.

We are not all ‘summer’

We are not all ‘summer’ people. Please don’t assume that your personal preference is shared by everyone. I’m looking forward to some cool weather.

autumn.....

we have new buds and leaves on the fig tree and jonquils popping up. i'd be happy if current conditions were as cold as it ever got !

Just an FYI...

Jello WW Team Just to let you know for the past week, there has not been any information in the 'NOW' section of the daily weather report. Does this require a server reboot maybe. Otherwise, everything else is A-OK. Thank you heaps for otherwise spot on weather reports. ☺ &

Hey there, thanks for letting

Hey there, thanks for letting us know about this bug! What location is it trying to pull data from (ie, where are you). We do have issues with our Observations network at times and we're about 90% through the process of shifting to a new more reliable system, but we can still make fixes the current old Wunderground network (which we still currently display).

Kind regards and thanks for the kind and supportive words!
Cheers
WW

Hello WW Team I am in

Hello WW Team I am in Dunedin. The 'NOW" information was pulled from a source on Maori Hill above the CBD, now it says "a Dunedin city..." I hope that helps. You're welcome. You're forecasts are a huge help in getting to Uni. :) :) :)

Monthly rain totals,

Hi, is there a way to get monthly rain totals from the local weather station ( you have one really close to my farm) Thanks Nick,

Hi Nick I'm not sure of the

Hi Nick

I'm not sure of the most efficient way of finding this out but I've found out an indirect method.

When looking at the local station near you on the observation page you'll see a station ID, "ICHRISTC159" for example. If you then use this link:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=

and chuck the station ID at the end so the link becomes:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=ICHRI...

It will then take you to a page with more information on that station, not all stations have rainfall information but for the ones that do you can play around with the drop down menus and try find out that info.

Hope that helps! :)

Matakana weather on Saturday 5th May?

hey weather watch team, hope you are doing great! Got a photo shoot tomorrow at Matakana, is it looking like thick cloud all day or do you think we'll get a few moments of sunshine breaking through? Thanks and happy Friday! Briar

G'day Briar Looks like there

G'day Briar

Looks like there should be some sun about with areas of high cloud then mid afternoon areas of mid level cloud will start to thicken and lower.

Have a good one! :)

May

I’m Wondering what the outlook for May looks like for Auckland, Is it going to rainy like April?

Hi there, no quite the

Hi there, no quite the opposite - at least for the first half. We're seeing a lot of high pressure and while some showers around this Sunday and maybe next week on one or two days the general trend is for the first two weeks of May to be much drier than usual. However we can't yet clearly see the second half but some signs are that the sub-tropics will be waking up but over NZ it looks like more high pressure at this stage.

Cheers
WW

Looking mainly settled on the 7th. Beyond that it starts to get a bit too far into the future. Come back and ask a little closer to the time if possible. Hope your trip goes well otherwise.

East Coromandel weekend

Hi there. I’m really just scratching for any glimmer of hope. I’m going anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter too much but is there any hope of some fine patches on Sunday near Opito? Be great if I could do the lawns! I’m staying Monday too which seems much better. Any good news? Cheers

Hi there Looks like there

Hi there

Looks like there could be some sun break through at times Sunday afternoon onwards although lawns might still be too wet to mow?

Monday looks to be cloudy areas, occasional sun and a few showers at times during the day.

Have a great weekend! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Opito weekend

Cheers and thanks heaps. You guys do a fantastic job and don’t think it ain’t appreciated

Weekend

Hi there, I understand that it’s looks a bit rainy on Saturday but will there be much wind and are there any thunderstorms?

Hi there, there is a bit of

Hi there, there is a bit of rain around this weekend but also a lot of dry weather too. The rain is intense in one small area (currently forecast to be over Coromandel Peninsula maybe). Assuming you're asking about Auckland, but yes some rain with winds variable (due to the low moving in). Winds don't look overly strong. We'll have full details in our next video out around noon Thursday.

Cheers

WW

Thank you, how about

Thank you, how about thunderstorms for Auckland?

Weather seems to be changing

Weather seems to be changing a fair amount with this low for the weekend, at this stage perhaps Sunday if you are lucky although they may sit more offshore about Great Barrier Island and the Coromandel.

Cheers

Can't see how it says showers

Can't see how it says showers becoming few and far between yet other sites and rain maps are showing rain all day. Your forecasts have become really inaccurate lately I have noticed and it is quite frustrating.

Forecasts change buddy,

Forecasts change buddy, especially the further you go out into the future. Like I said above it seems quite changeable with this low coming up. No doubt some aspects of the above forecasts could change again by the time Sunday comes around so some things at this point in time may become irrelevant and you could be arguing over nothing. But anyway......

Weather

Hi, Is your weather accurate? And in Auckland is there going to be much rain this weekend?

Hi thereI'd hope it's

Hi there

I'd hope it's reasonably accurate otherwise we wouldn't exist! :D

Saturday looks wet for sure with heavy rain possible for a time, Sunday at this stage is morning showers easing becoming less frequent during the day and sunny spells making an appearance.

Hope that helps :)

Cheers

Taupo

Hi, we have some relatives over from Ireland and taking them down to Taupo on Wednesday until Saturday - will it be reasonably dry down there do you think? Thanks Des

As in the forecast it looks dry for most of that time, Saturday is when some wet weather moves in :)

weather next month

What are the chances of the weather in Ruakaka middle of next month being warm still ?

Hi there Sorry couldn't say

Hi there

Sorry couldn't say at the moment what will happen mid next month, being closer to winter you would mostly expect conditions on average to be colder then they are now.

Come back and ask closer to the time if you like :)

Port Charles 21 April?

Help! My partner and I planned a hike in Port Charles Coromandel area this Saturday but weather is conflicting between you guys and metservice. We're not game to drive all the way in just to see - do you have any suggestions why it's so conflicting and which forecast to consider for planning? Cheers!

Hi there, If we all had the

Hi there, If we all had the exact same forecast there would be no need for competition for us to exist! We don't comment on the accuracy of MetService public forecasts, we only monitor our own. The forecast at this stage for Port Charles area is mostly dry with windy westerlies. Perhaps a shower but that risk currently looks mainly further down towards Thames.

All the best!
WW

Thanks so much and completely
