Light precip

Light precipitation falling across much of South Auckland this evening, started around 1015pm.

Swell & Wind - early next week

Hi guys, very cool how you answer our questions, so a big thanks!

Anyway....

Can you give me an idea on how the North Auckland East Coast Swell/Surf/Wind is looking early next week?

I see there may be a good swell and Light winds...?

Thanks!

Hi there Thanks for the

Hi there

Thanks for the feedback :)

At the moment we're seeing nor' easters with rainy skies off and on on Sunday and Monday.

Nor' east swells will probably be best although swells will be of a reasonable shape it'll take quite powerful winds offshoers to cause a stir.
We're picking 40kph winds at the mo offshore and the swell could be about the 3 metre mark.

Weathermap.co.nz can give you more detail as they specialise in marine forecasts.

More snow this winter?

Is there a heightened chance of (more) snow in Auckland this winter? or was last night a one-off?

History would tell us this

History would tell us this was a one off, but we certainly couldnt say more snow won't happen this year.  Last night was a one off - and still no proof snow fell but we had the conditions for it.  We have a story at 7am tomorrow (Thurs) which addresses your questions in more detail.

Cheers!

Auckland

 Hi there

It's a nippy start but a return to milder temps from later tomorrow.

Could see 2 or 3 very cold outbreaks over winter.

Cheers

Questions about weather prediction.

Is it going to be the only coldest day in auckland? or there are some coming? and is this year colder or warmer and do you think auckland will get snow this year?

Considering winter hasn't

Considering winter hasn't even started yet, we certainly expect more cold weather for Auckland.  No forecaster can predict if it will snow in Auckland this winter but with the current pattern anything is possible!  However it was so cold yesterday it will likely be Auckland's coldest day of 2013.

Cheers
Phil

Forecast

Okay I live in west auckland and then my roof is covered with white stuffs. they looked like hailstones but some of them are smooth. and there was a hailshower today and a bit of sleet but did it snow today? Is it going to rain/sleet/hail/snow again tomorrow? It's the 2nd time in history that auckland forecast used the word "snow" :)

Accuracy

Thank you guys for your accuracy in prediction of the weather here in Auckland ....this is awesome.

Thanks very much - It always

Thanks very much - It always means a great deal to everyone here when we get messages like that! We have very high standards that we try to stick to - we're not perfect but we certainly do our best to be :)

Cheers
Phil

probably wont get 15 wed.

probably wont get 15 wed. even if the sun comes out due to cold air mass,

You posted that just as I was

You posted that just as I was updating tomorrow - I definitely agree and have dropped it to 13 degrees.  It's possible it might get to 14 but some suburbs may only just reach 12!  All depends on how much cloud there is pretty much. 

Stay warm!
Cheers

Phil

weather

Is it going to be cold again tomorrow here in new lynn auckland? and i thought it was just a hail but your forecast says it's snow, so is it considered as snow or just sleet? thanks

Hi there, yes it will be cold

Hi there, yes it will be cold again tomorrow but with the sun returning it will feel much warmer than today.  We have hail tonight over the whole city, sleet falling in West Auckland (a mushy kinda of rain) and snow (possible) on the tops of the Waitaks.  This story from a couple of years ago explains the difference between sleet, hail, snow etc http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/column-aucklanders-guide-cold-stuff-falling-sky
