Thick fog

At 2:00:AM thick fog swirled over New Lynn. Cleared off by 4:00:AM. Now dark clouds loom about Auckland.

IS IT REALLY DARK CLOUDS, HER

IS IT REALLY DARK CLOUDS, HER IN MANGERE ITS SUNNY....
I THINK THE WEATHER FORCAST SHOULD CHECK PLEASE! IS IT GOING TO BE SUNNY ON FRIDAY???

Auckland Summer

Hi Team,

Just wandering what the summer forcast is looking like for Auckland this year?

I believe that is too far out

I believe that is too far out on the horizon, we have yet to get through spring before worrying about summer. For example, during early May this year not many would have predicted this warm weather we having right now in August.

Auckland weather Sunday

Hi we are in Auckland and have our house auction on Sunday, can you tell is if the weather is going to be fine?
Thanks

Be crap from saturday into

Be crap from saturday into next week,A reality check.

Looks like there may be a few

Looks like there may be a few showers about with southwesterly winds at this stage.

WW

Foggy start

A beautiful day with sun shining well in New Lynn after a foggy start to the morning.

Auckland

Why doesnt it rain properly in Auckland anymore.

Hi there - the past few big

Hi there - the past few big rain bands have all just been a bit too far away from Auckland sadly.  This was the closest we've seen in some time but the angle of the winds tilted south east, which turned a wet easterly into a dry south easterly (as the East Cape and Coromandel ranges then absorb almost all of our rain. It's why other forecasters said it would be a lot wetter this weekend too (we thought it would be wetter but our forecasts all said mostly dry in Auckland for the weekend with showers about.  It was still drier than we thought though, because the SE change happened a little earlier than we expected.  A tiny change that can have a significant difference.  Like aiming an arrow at a dartboard - if you tilt it by just a few degrees it will completely miss the target. That's what happened in Auckland this weekend.  As for other rain events, just bad placement that they have missed us.  Spring may actually be wetter in Auckland.

- WW

Yeah, rain is in the forecast

Yeah, rain is in the forecast but I don't thisk we will see any...

We have already had a dry July... could August turn out the same?

Air pressure

Has the air pressure changed dramatically in the last 24 hours? We are in Auckland. Trying to establish why my husband had got Vertigo today!

I'm no medical expert but

I'm no medical expert but from someone who also suffers vertigo from time to time it can be brought on by the change in season as we head into spring and pollen counts increase. That would be far more likely to be a cause than the air pressure dropping (as people tend to only notice air pressure changes during cyclones and tornados, generally speaking).  As if 4:30pm air pressure was around 1006.9hPa in Auckland which is only just a little shy of normal.

Hope your husband feels better soon!

Cheers

Rain this weekend

Hi. We have family functions on both Sat & Sun starting at 1330hrs. Your Sat forecast is quite different to MetService which shows quite heavy rain on Sat but lighter showers on Sun. You have sun & cloud on Sat before poss showers Sun. I've looked at your rain maps which show poss wet weather on both days. I prefer your forecast but need to plan activities. Your expert prediction?

Hi there - it all depends on

Hi there - it all depends on the centre of the low, which will be weakening over the weekend and drifting down towards BOP.  If the winds tilt more SE that's like a Canterbury Nor'Wester for Auckland to some degree - it's often dry with the bulk of the rain falling on the eastern side of East Cape and the Coromandel and Kaimai Ranges.  At this stage we think the bulk of the energy will be south of Auckland by Saturday (but some does remain in the north, possibly why there are conflicting forecasts) so currently we're going against the computer models (which also had high confidence of rain in Auckland today, but we went against the models today too). It's a messy weekend and timing is clearly everything, but it's always tricky to get super specific when a subtropical low dies out over the North Island.

We don't monitor MetService daily forecasts and often we have seperate predictions- up to the public to work out who is more accurate in the long run, because we'd both say "we are!".

Cheers, and sorry I can't lock it in any more than that!

Hi Guys, How would you define

Hi Guys,

How would you define an "exposed area"?

Anywhere that is exposed to

Anywhere that is exposed to this wind direction - eastern beaches, higher suburbs, suburbs north of about West Auckland/CBD, areas that face east, etc.  With winds like today some areas will have gusty winds while others will have very little - so we use "exposed" as a word to sum up areas more prone for today's wind direction (easterly).

Cheers

WW

Very gusty wind

New Lynn is getting very gusty wind. Follows a beautiful morning of optics.

clouds

why does nz have so much cloud cover for weeks on end Jack Thames

Because we get too many

Because we get too many southwesterlies and lots of low pressure and no land mass.

Hi Jack, thanks for your

Hi Jack, thanks for your question.

NZ isn't called the Land of the long white cloud (Aotearoa) for nothing!  Simply put - imagine the westerly flow of air (our most common wind) as being a river.  Now think of the South Island and North Island as two dams - the clouds (water in this analogy) builds up along the western side and can't easily 'spillover' the tops.  So we end up with a sea of cloud flooding western regions - while it can be cloud free over in places like BOP or Hawkes Bay etc.  Clouds tends to be at the worst now due to lack of wind and long cold nights following mild days - but in a couple of months things will get sunnier hopefully as winds pick up and the highs become less intense. (really big highs in winter are often cloudy for Thames, Waikato, Auckland etc).

Cheers

Phil

FOG

Any chances of Fog tomorrow morning in Auckland?

Hi there, yes there is some

Hi there, yes there is some chance but Auckland is more borderline tomorrow - not as high risk as today, but still high risk in the south of the city.  We'll have a story early tomorrow on the fog too.  Like today any fog should burn off quickly and with winds expected to develop that will also help.

Cheers

Phil

Spring

Hi WW,

Would you say that it could be an early Spring this year? Little signs are showing that it is already starting. Also would this July go down as one of the driest on record in Auckland? Looking at the numbers we have only had 47mm of it and the average for July is 146mm.

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks guys :)

Hi there - yep, spring has

Hi there - yep, spring has already started in Auckland and some the other regions - very mild and gardens/lawns starting to grow again. I'll be writing a piece about this in the coming days, keen to see some NIWA stats first too (about July).

Cheers!

Phil

Yup

I commented further down the page on how this has been the warmest winter ever for auckland.. Plants are flowering my passion fruit plant didn't die in winter and keept fruiting the whole winter and ripening enough to eat. Now it's growing new vines already.. And yes the grass has started growing greener and faster

Looking like another 5 days

Looking like another 5 days of cloud for Auckland after the rain clears.

Winter...

This really has to be the nicest winter I've ever known... In west auckland it's been so nice and sunny and it's been a really warm winter.. I mean if you sit in the sun for a few mins its so hot ts like a summer day.. My plants and flowers are already budding and growing new flowers... Best winter ever.

I agree

Winter really is mostly pleasant up North and relatively short. We're half way through already. Spring for me is the worst season in Auckland with the incessant SW winds.

Yes if we talking about lack

Yes if we talking about lack of frosts,but its been so overcast on many days like this past week.

Funny the nights are clear as

Funny the nights are clear as the day's are so dreary.

Variable weather today

sunrise,fog rolls in,fog clears,sunshine & now very cloudy New Lynn North.

Fog?

Any forecast for FOG around country tomorrow?

Parts of the Central North

Parts of the Central North Island, Waikato, Auckland and Northland look like they could well get fog again tonight so that means tomorrow morning also. Elsewhere should be mostly fog free.

Cheers
WW

sunshine & cirrus

Now a beautiful day in New Lynn North as the cloud cover blows away with SW wind. Great to see expanses of blue with cirrus dancing about.

sunshine & cirrus

I am a born & bred Westy, where I spent the first 27 years in New Lynn and have never heard of New Lynn North. Can you please explain where that is.... I'm guessing you actually mean Kelston.
So would Green Bay be New Lynn West, Avondale New Lynn East & New Windsor New Lynn South and New Lynn itself now known as New Lynn Central?

Fog

Hi Guys
Off to visit my 97 year old aunt tomorrow - do you still think there will be fog - and is it likely to be bad enough to close the airport for regional flights? Thanks!

Hi there - that's always the

Hi there - that's always the big question!  We do have fog in the forecast both Sat and Sun around Waikato and Auckland, but just like clouds in the sky, fog patches can form anywhere - so very hard to predict the answers to your questions.  At this stage we see no strong evidence that fog will linger and cause major problems - but keep checking back.   The current cloud ceiling may reduce the chance of fog if it remains in place overnight too.

We aren't expecting widespread fog problems across the rest of NZ either, so fingers crossed all will be ok. 

Cheers

WW

Frost

Hi Guys,

Looking at an early start for golf on Saturday, with an overnight low of 7 forcasted can I assume that there is no chance of a frost delay.

Frosty conditions are quite

Frosty conditions are quite unlikely but there could be some fog in the morning. Couldn't see the temperature dropping below 6 if it tried. A low overnight Friday / Saturday morning of 8 to 7 degrees seems resonable.

Cheers
WW

under 7 already,only 910pm,if

under 7 already,only 910pm,if it stays like this till 5am then clouds over like it usually does,it be a chilly one in the morning.

Very few rainy days

Is it just me or have there been very few rainy days this winter? It seems to rain at night a bit, but the days seem mostly clear. Is this going to be a continuing trend?

Hi there, yes it's been

Hi there, yes it's been fairly dry in Auckland lately - but we have had a few good solid wet days over winter, but I'd agree that we've had many dry days, more than some other winters that's for sure.  Will be good to see the NIWA figures at the end of this month to confirm.

Cheers

Phil

Cold

It was unbelievably cold today in West Auckland. I woke up around 7am and went outside... the temperature was -1c. I cant even believe it. Do you think my thermometer was just messing up with me or it was really cold?

Some areas around Auckland

Some areas around Auckland were very cold last night even though the airport only dropped to 4 degrees, so your thermometer may be correct.

WW

Hello Team, Is there ever

Hello Team,
Is there ever going to be an weatherwatch phone app. Met service have one but it is borderline crap.I think you guys would do a much better job.

Hi there, actually our app

Hi there, actually our app went live this past weekend!  We're still finding bits and pieces to fix - but feel free to download it yourself and have a play (Apple and Android).   Unlike MetService our app is free.  We'll be launching it properly in the next week or so :)

Cheers!

WW

WW App
