Rain Today

Hi There,

I have looked at the rain maps for Auckland today i want to spray my outdoor area for moss and i need to let it dry for 12 hours do you think that's possible for today and tomorrow? i have looked at metservice and like usual they are confusing me by saying few showers so could you please help me.

Thanks

Rachael

Yep, we even called them out

Yep, we even called them out on that in our Herald weather video - southerlies in Auckland rarely bring showers.  In fact a southerly in Auckland is similar to a nor'wester in Chch (except for the temp!) - it's often dry.  In saying that. we also mentioned in our video that the reason Met are forecasting showers is because they are brushing the western coastline - and a few might affect the far west of the city this afternoon.  That's about it really. Check their rain radar too - before spraying.

Cheers

Phil

Is there ever gonna be

Is there ever gonna be another cold snap to hit New Zealand or its the last one? Just curious. Thanks

snow

it snowed in red beach, Auckland today I was coming back from Albany and there was piles thick of snow

Not snow but hail

I drove past that as well - while it certainly looked like snow, it was hail that settled on the ground.

No snow!!

Hmmm I think you are seeing things...

 HI there, it's far too warm

 HI there, it's far too warm for snow in Auckland today but you've just come past a major downpour so almost certainly a significant hail storm in there - we have the perfect clouds for hail at the moment around parts of Auckland.  Thanks for the update!

Funny how the lows always

Funny how the lows always position themselves in such a manner the ensure the maximum SW flow over Auckland.

Rainbows & sundog

Great morning enjoying clouds,sunshine,rainbows and sundog. Never get sick of the beauty of mother nature in Auckland's skies.

Rain on the weekend

Hi WW team. Can you tell me the likelihood of rain over the weekend? Which day will be driest? Saturday or Sunday. I am shifting house. Oh...and would you like to help? :)
:) Cheeky me. :D

Not cheeky at all! But if you

Not cheeky at all! But if you click on MAPS above and then Rain, it will show exactly what is happening this weekend rainwise.  At this stage both days look unsettled but Sunday may be sunnier and drier for Auckland (even though Sunday is when a cold change is heading north!).  Keep an eye on those maps - they will give you far more detail than we can. :)

Cheers and all the best with the move!

i just checked the rain map

Weather on the 13th and 14th of July

We have a birthday coming up this weekend and are trying to get a feel for what the weather will do. Your forecast for these days differs considerably from metservice - especially on Sunday. When will there be a clearer / more consistent view on weekend weather?

This weekend is an odd one

This weekend is an odd one for Auckland - Saturday looks wet but while Sunday has the exact same chance of rain (generally speaking) the southerly wind may see most of the rain fall in other parts of the North Island - allowing Auckland to remain dry.  South to south east winds are normally dry for Auckland - but in saying that, we're aware there is a lot going on weatherwise this weekend.  Thats why the forecasts are all different - they are still trying to work out where everything will be lined up.  We longer monitor MetService predictions so can't comment on their forecasts other than that outside of 5 days their forecasts are just computer generated so can flip flop (like our smaller regional centres do).  Things will consolidate more in the next day or two.

Thanks, that helps (sort of)

Cloud Cover

Hi, It will be great if you can help identify what is the best location in Auckland to sight the crescent for the new lunar month. I am looking for a location facing the west, with the least cloud cover between 5 and 6pm. Any thoughts?

Moonrise

Moonrise is at 8:17:PM http://rasnz.org.nz/SolarSys/2013/MoonRandS.shtml. North Head will give best view.

Moon

X fingers for the clouds not obscuring the new moon :) Try looking at the Kelston Community centre, an elevated position with 360 views and shelter. Westhaven can offer a great view looking up the harbour too. Both have free parking. Watch for thieves!

Westcoast beach maybe or one

Westcoast beach maybe or one of the volcanic mountains,though you contend with lights,anyway it probably be raining as it seems to be of late.

Hi there I can tell you about

Hi there

I can tell you about the weather but I'm not familiar with locations in Auckland for sighting this sort've thing, a high point away from city lights?. Perhaps another member of the public can help?

As for the weather between that time. Right on about 5 or 6pm high cloud is going to thicken from the west and anywhere you go may be no good for viewing things in the sky. You might sneak in there before high cloud starts to thicken up but it is borderline.

Good luck!

WW

GaleForce here now

For Auckland? Westerlies have

For Auckland? Westerlies have picked up a bit but not reaching gale force. Winds are technically moderate to fresh and gusting into strong territory at times.

Perhaps you could be in a very exposed area however, above is going via Auckland airport and Whenuapai obs.

It was SW about 2.30pm and

It was SW about 2.30pm and another squall gone through just now SW direction again.

Re:Cold air starting to move in

Hi referring to this cold air, when do you reckon it will reach Auckland?

Auckland isn't really getting

Auckland isn't really getting a cold blast - just the highs will drop this week. The colder air has already started to move in - the highs and lows  this week are all much lower than last week. 

Cheers

Already 11c at 7pm,dropping

Already 11c at 7pm,dropping like a rock as its clear,maybe 6/7 tonight.

Mainly sunny with light southerly winds after low cloud clears

Should know by now anticyclone centre directly north of the country results in complete all day cloud in western areas.

We thought the breeze would

We thought the breeze would be enough to blow most of this cloud out - but noticed mid-morning that wasn't going to happen so changed the forecast to suit.  Apologies for getting it wrong this morning - it's when the wind stops that things getting tricky sometimes!

Humidity 100%

Hi, Does 100% humidity mean washed clothings on a line outside would not dry today?

Very humid this morning (or

Very humid this morning (or damp) and as of 8:45 it was down to 98%!  Hopefully you can dry your washing on the line today - the high humidity is fairly normal first thing in the morning in winter, it may remain cloudy for much of today but sunny areas could break through this afternoon with the assistance of some breeze :)

Cheers

Wednesday Weather

Is there going to be any rain tommorow at around 1 o'clock?LLL

 That's what the rain maps at

 That's what the rain maps at the top of the page are for!  They can show you in the best detail the entire picture.  There is a risk of showers around then - but you may be in an area that misses them.

Cheers

Strange?

Tonight is not as cold as other nights, but going outside it does feel a lot colder than the previous nights on Friday and Saturday. Is it due to the humidity?

Possibly, the humidity was a

Possibly, the humidity was a little lower last night then on Friday night for example. And a more humid airmass may feel the same as temperatures a degree or two warmer but with less humidity. Saturday night there was nothing much of note going on.

Rainbows and showers

Great day for sunshine,rainbows and showers in Auckland.Main weather patch of rain S of New Lynn.

So?

Do the models show another Antarctic storm emerging in mid to late July?

No doubt plenty more to

No doubt plenty more to come,Cloudy,Wet and Windy forever.

They do at the moment - we

They do at the moment - we think there is moderate risk of a wintry blast around the 13th of July.  Looks like it will be a big system (and big sometimes makes it harder to pinpoint specific regions this far out).  But we're expecting a cold south to south west change around the middle of July (end of Week 2 start of Week 3).

We have a story tomorrow at 7am that addresses the forecast for the next few weeks ahead.

Cheers!

Ha, I couldn't think of

Ha, I couldn't think of anything worse than being owned and controlled by the NZ Govt.  We are happy being independent, but we want to have a healthy working relationship with a Govt forecaster.  Because MetService has taken action to try and stop us from growing - and because they refuse to work proactively with us - we are more than happy to continue strengthening our relationship with NIWA - but they won't be taking us over, as I have too many issues with the way NIWA and MetService operate (for example, I don't think the tax payer should fund both organisations - no other western nation has two govt owned forecasters competing against each other - it's crazy!).

Good for you stay indie

We'll support ya!

It's 2.2c right now in New

It's 2.2c right now in New Lynn but it feels like below zero :/

Auckland skies

Great day for sundogs,weak halo,pink &purple sunset clds & beautiful cirrus displays. Cool night as smoke rises straight up from chimneys.

2^C ??

A 2 degree low for Saturday night, is it really going to get that low?

Hi there, yes it could be -

Hi there, yes it could be - although it's now 3.  Many suburbs will likely hover around 6, but some inland suburbs/areas may match Waikato temps overnight due to colder, drier and clearing south to south east breeze today.
