Harolds Big Day Out Ellerslie Racecourse Today from Noon

Thanks Phil for your accurate forecasting, from 10 days out!
We're set for a huge day of FREE family fun ...full carnival atmosphere.
Your forecasting was by far the most accurate and pinpointed!

An isolated shower?

Guys (and girls) - i love your work, you are the only weather channel I pay attention to. Most of the time, you are spot on, but today - you mention an isolated shower.

Well, up here on the South Head, it has not stopped drizzling for the last 4 hours! It's reminding me of my homeland (UK)

Hoping your prediction for the weekend is accurate as usual, because it's been miserable and dull this week

Keep up the good work

Your more in the flow there

Your more in the flow there so would likely catch a bit more of the weather this system is producing.

Still, pretty much at the same time as your comment was posted Auckland did start to catch alot more showers and drizzle and we updated accordingly.

Hopefully we do a good job for you this weekend! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Mangawhai

Hi we're heading to Mangawhai on the 6th. I just looked at the interactive map which is showing between 0.1mm and 1mm per hour for the whole three days we're planning to be up there, does that indicate that any rain is likely to be fairly intermittent or constant and light? I know it's a long way out and things could change dramatically (praying for that to be for the better, not worse!)

Thanks

Hi there - timing is

Hi there - timing is everything for the 6th and this far out we have to rely on those models a lot.  Based on the current models it looks as though a pleasant start to the day with clouds and winds building, then rain by evening.  However this far out that front could arrive 24 hours earlier or even 48 hours later!  So that's why we focus so much on the 6 day forecast, until technology is better with 10 days for New Zealand.   Hope that helps for now!

Cheers

Phil

Monday's looking "fresh"

Zero degrees high and low... :))

Can't trust computers eh! :D

Can't trust computers eh! :D All good now, cheers!

cloud displays today

Fantastic cloud displays today as strong wind blows. Hoping the black flag up at New Lynn blows away!

Those SW winds are getting

Those SW winds are getting more agressive and earlier each forecast day,3 days ago wasnt factored yesterday mon pm/tues now saturday.

We think winds will turn more

We think winds will turn more westerly for Sunday and Monday - but sou'westers develop late Monday and last to Friday potentially.  We have full details tomorrow morning from 7am about the cooler change coming next week for NZ

Fishing friday

Hey is the forecast for Friday the 28th accurate?? I'm going fishing and just want to chek also do u know how many knots it will be blowing?? I'm in auckland

Hi there - you're best to

Hi there - you're best to click on our Maps section at the top of the page. There you can see chance of rain, how windy it will be and the size of the swells.   At this stage we have a 40% chance of showers with a SSE wind averageing 25 to 30km/h on land. 

Cheers

WW

When's the forecast get updated?

I've been checking all day and nothing's changed. Is the weather staying constant

A good forecast shouldn't be

A good forecast shouldn't be changing!!  But our forecasts are updated several times a day - and this system has 100% stalled.  So everything that was forecast for today, Weds and Thurs, have now all been delayed 12 to 24 hours as this very large high moves off us.  All last week and even yesterday the latest data indicated this would happen today - but it looks as though it's holding on. Of course with the high holding on longer the showers that were supposed to spread further today have started to fizzle out as they run out of steam.  A complicated few days ahead weatherwise.

please tell me good weather is on its way ??

hey guys im planning an outdoor activity on the 5th of october ( next friday ) i know its quite early but any idea what the weather will be like ??
thanks
melissa

Hi there, not really sure

Hi there, not really sure that far out. In the longest of the long ranges models it is hinting at generally higher areas of pressure that are fairly constant. So extreme types of weather could be counted out i.e. heavy rain or gales. There are also hints that there will be periods of southwesterlies followed by northwesterlies then reverting back to the southwest again.

Friday 5th may be a building pattern before a frontal system so increasing cloud with northwesterly winds and a low risk of showers perhaps but that's a pretty long shot. Feel free to check back in closer to the time! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Okay

so who is going to crack first for this weeks forecast? MS have a dismal one where you one sounds pretty good...need to start to make outside plans for the weekend folks!

Am not sure how things were

Am not sure how things were looking this morning but agree it's gonna be a fairly dismal week for the North Island and the forecasts seems to reflect that above. Cheers! :D

Fingers crossed for wedding

Hey guys,

I'm getting married outdoors this Saturday 29th Sept in Albany.
Are we going to be safe outdoors or will my guests have to bring their wellys and waterproof poncho's?

Thanks
Typical kiwi guy with a she'll be right attitude!

At this stage it's looking

At this stage it's looking dry mostly although there is the risk of a shower. It is still 5 days away so a little hard to nut out at this point in time. There is some pressure being applied to the situation with a low to the north and another system to the west of New Zealand around that time. So if they speed up the situation could change but hopefully it doesn't deteriorate as we get closer to Saturday.

Cheers
Aaron

warmer weather

Hi there
I am so over this cold spring weather. Can you please tell me when it is likely to get to 20 deg?
Thanks
John

Higher then 20 deg's eh?

Higher then 20 deg's eh? There could be a few nice days perhaps later this coming week. Not sure about the temperature getting over 20 but 18's could be on the cards. We still aren't really near warm summer like temperatures yet as we head into the end of September, just a case of waiting it out for a few months really!

Cheers
Aaron

sunday 30th

got a track day at pukekohe any chance il be getting the knee down or umbrella up?cheers

Looks like anticyclonic

Looks like anticyclonic weather next Sunday so bets are on for settled weather with perhaps sunny skies. It is a while out though and you can get cloudy gloomy days with anticyclones depending on the airflow. Keep an eye out on here for the latest forecasts and hopefully it works out!

Cheers
Aaron

waiheke

hey just wondering is it gona be good day to visit waiheke island this saturday?? thanx

Hi, looks great at this stage

Hi, looks great at this stage - a few clouds and nor'east winds.  Could be a little bit windy and cool if it clouds over, but at this stage going for about 16 or 17 degrees wth sun and cloud :)

raining in south Auckland now

Hey guys its raining in south Auckland atm with no mention of rain thought I would just let you know

 Thanks for that - and

 Thanks for that - and apologies for it not being in the forecast. Wind direction didn't quite go as planned so a few showers clipping Auckland (mostly near the western coastline).  Looks like they'll continue overnight but nothing much.  Typical anyticyclonic gloom!

Summer

Hi there!

I was just wondering what sort of summer auckland would be in for this year? Do you think we could be up to 30 degrees?
Last summer was a bit of a bust with all the rain so I was really hoping for a scorcher! I know its probably super hard to tell since its quite far away and all.

Thanks :)

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage summer may be a bit like winter and spring - no strong dominating weather pattern.  There were talks of El Nino forming and while that still looks likely at the moment it appears to be on hold.  El Nino isn't especially hot for Auckland as it brings more cloud and westerlies into the city.  But we think this summer will be hotter than last summer.  We will have a much better idea as we head towards November.

Facebook

I have just read your piece about following you on Facebook for updates that aren't shown on your website. As someone who doesn't use Facebook, can you please explain why you would put information there but not on your website. As I reply on your site for valuable information in times of extreme weather, it concerns me somewhat that access to such information might be limited. I really appreciate all the work you and your team do to keep us informed. Well done. Thank you.

Hi there - thanks for the

Hi there - thanks for the question.  Basically Facebook is better set up for small updates that don't require an actual news story - for example "Band of heavy showers about to hit Wellington in the next hour".  However we are looking at migrating those updates from Facebook onto our WW page too - so you dont have to be on FB to see those updates (but you would need to be signed up if you wanted to comment on FB updates).  So hopefully by the end of the year or early next year FB and WW will be combined on our homepage - as we don't like anyone missing out on ANY of our updates!

Cheers
Phil

P.S - thanks for your support! :)  Much appreciated.

Double Drat!

I have tons of washing out and it's as black as over the CBD - are we in for a downpour and thunder??

20% of the city should see a

20% of the city should see a light shower or drizzle patch today - but no thunderstorms or major downpours for Auckland. :)

Some cloud

Drat, was expecting a sunny just about cloud free day & it is very cloudy with patches of sun -New Lynn

is there a big storm coming Phillip?

check out weather right now...kinda freaky over takapuna..

Just some big but low level

Just some big but low level clouds moving through - the thickness makes them look extra dark and ominous but nothing much around Auckland at the moment, 80% dry with a few brief showers here and there.

Cheers
Phil

is there a big storm coming Phillip?

lol ok thank goodness for that! i was so scared i warned my partner cause his mum lives out where that massive cloud was. .

cheers for replying.

:)

Some Monday Praise

I'd just like to say what an awesome job you guys do here. Your forecasts are always as accurate as possible, specific and well worded. You really do blow Metservice out of the water. I switched to WW quite some time ago and have never been disappointed and I have even converted my family and friends! So thank you! and keep up the good work - A Big Fan.

is there a big storm coming Phillip?

lol ive converted everyone too hahaha, Weather Watch are the weather BOSS!

;)

Wow - that is incredibly kind

Wow - that is incredibly kind and supportive of you, thank you!  We really do appreciate comments like this - makes what we do so worthwhile! :)

Pukekohe

Lightening storm passed through Pukekohe about 10-15 mins ago - Telly

this is metservice's criteria

this is metservice's criteria for a severe thunderstorm warning

MetService uses the following criteria for severe thunderstorms in New Zealand:
Heavy rain (from thunderstorms): Rainfall of 25 millimetres per hour, or more.
Large hail: Hailstones 20 millimetres in diameter, or larger.
Strong wind gusts (from thunderstorms): Gusts of 110 kilometres per hour (60 knots) or stronger.
Damaging tornadoes: Fujita F1 (wind speeds greater than 116 kilometres per hour (63 knots)) or stronger.

I'm slightly confused as to how the storm we just had didn't warrant a warning, or a watch at least.

we had all of those (maybe smaller hail and no tornado, but looking @ the 'ufo cloud' there certianly was a risk for one)

your pre-warning on facebook meant i could get the washing in pronto. with it only having a few drips on it.

thanks guys keep up the awesome work :)

Yeah, thanks Mel Baker for

Yeah, thanks Mel Baker for the pre-warning on the thunderstorm. Shame WW didn't mention any thunderstorms in their forecast until 15 minutes after her post.

No

problems :) Could it see it coming in from the Kaipara so thought I should say something especially when the thunder started! The intense hail storm was scary though - lasted over 10 minutes :(

I find your reply very rude.

I find your reply very rude. Weatherwatch did an amazing job. even if it was 15 minutes after her post, they had to make sure it was moving, so that they dont make a wrong forecast. just because its raining in Hellensville doesnt mean it will be raining in Henderson. Be greatful, if you were looking at metservice, they didnt mention a thing. weatherwatch did a great job, and for that i thank them. for you on the other hand, grow up and become paitent. at least they told us about it!

We were unsure if they were

We were unsure if they were going to move beyond there, which is why it wasn't included in the forecast until the western ranges suddenly fired up. Yes, it would've been good to have predicted earlier but you have to note these thunderstorms developed within minutes.  We were the only forecaster to include thunderstorms in our public forecasts for 3 hours this evening - at least we were awake and monitoring the skies!

We were unsure if they were

EXACTLY!!

:) the only reason ppls are hassling WW is because they know WW are the kings of weather now! so deal with it.
