Dry Spell

No rain in Christchurch for the past 18 days. Any idea when we might see some?

Hi there Best bet is to keep

Hi there

Best bet is to keep an eye on our Christchurch forecasts as they will always show the most up to date info.

Cheers, Aaron

thunder

we had no thunder in auckland yesterday. will it thunder here again or is thunderstorms are becoming so rare in auckland that we may not see them are we getting the austrilian draught that caused a long time of no rain in austrilia and now we gonna ge no rain at all?

please answer my question

I am wondering why the whole country got storms auckland didnt. does that means we have to wait till next year now ?

Hi there, you need to focus

Hi there, you need to focus on certain words with thunderstorms. We said "isolated across the Upper North Island" for Sunday quite a few times. That means entire areas can miss out. It's hit and miss and usually inland areas like Northland and Waikato are better for making thunderstorms than very narrow/coastal Auckland. There may be more in the future, but our weather is chaotic in NZ so hard to forecast these things with detail in advance.

Cheers

WW

oh ok thanks

thanks alot. wellington had a good storm I hear considering they get lesser storms than auckland does. timaru had a bad storm. which appaprently lightning lasted all night and that storm is responsible for the damage. i feel dorry for those people affected

Looks like a calm patch in

Looks like a calm patch in regards to thunder for Auckland coming up. Some will eventually turn up again.

Aaron 

thanks

thanks i was so looking foward for a storm and nz as a whole got them but not auckland. which was not fair. dont you think. there was a storm northern auckland but never made it down south

driving to franz josef from christchurch next week

Hi good folks at weatherwatch, we coming to nz first time. Reaching Christchurch on 19th and driving to Franz Josef on 20th morning, the roads seem closed, and flooding. Any thoughts what can we be greeted with?

Travel to south island on 19th

Hi ! We are also traveling to NZ on the 19th and really worried if we should cancel our bookings with all this weather fiasco. We are flying in on 19th into christchurch , 23rd to Lake Tekapo, 26th Queenstown and 27th Franz Josef. What is the likelihood that we will be able to continue with our current itinerary. Or should we cancel/hold bookings. Are you still continuing your trip?

Hi there, we'd expect most

Hi there, we'd expect most things to be back to normal before then simply because of demand in summer to use the roads. Keep up to date with NZTA for roading info to see when roads open again.

Cheers

WW

Hi there That is 10 days away

Hi there

That is 10 days away so I can't give anything very specific at this point in time. Basically at this point it's looking like dry weather in the east (Canterbury / Christchurch) and wet weather in the west (West Coast). Hopefully that roads have been sorted out by then.

Have a good trip!

Cheers
Aaron

Taupo

Hi team, I am currently booking a holiday in Taupo and wondering if I should book it for the week coming up or the week after I'm wanting the best weather possible?

Auckland 20th

Hey guys, last day of work on the 20th and we were going to have a post work bbq across the afternoon and evening. One condition, no rain. Early thoughts??

G'day thereThe weather

G'day there

The weather pattern is quite chaotic at the moment and the 20th is 12 days out, nearly two weeks away. Anything I say now won't be of much use.

Come and ask 6 to 7 days out if possible?

In the meanwhile keep an eye on these maps if you like: http://weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Then select "rain", you can go out to the 20th there and try your luck. I don't find maps out that far very reliable, but there you go! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks Aaron, will keep

Thanks Aaron, will keep checking!

Hi Aaron, A bit closer to

Hi Aaron, A bit closer to the date now. Any thoughts?

G'day there It's looking

G'day there

It's looking partly cloudy, may be a few showers pass through in the afternoon then drying out in the evening. Westerly winds, breezy at times after midday.

I'm basically reiterating what we have on our own computer generated forecasts, I don't have any specialy knowledge really beyond what the models are saying that far out so they may be something to keep an eye on. Just look at our Auckland forecasts and scroll down to Friday 20th.

From this coming Sunday evening we should have more of our own take on what Friday the 20th will do in written form on this site under the Auckland forecasts heading.

Cheers
Aaron

Christchurch winds

Check out our rural weather page for Christchurch and click on "Wind":

Rain, hail, snow, thunderstorms or sunshine

Hi WW, I do like this weather site, plus the chatty thing is great value. Something’s been bothering me lately. With all this talk around too much co2 is affecting the weather, can you WW people explain to me how you and us plebs in away with the fairies land can tell the difference in the various types of excess co2. For example, how would I tell the difference just by looking at a cloud of co2 whether that co2 is going to produce rain or 30 degree sunshine? Cheers Ted

Morning Ted, thanks very much

Morning Ted, thanks very much for the feedback and support. Your question is an interesting one, but to be honest it's outside our expertise. We suggest you contact Government Agency NIWA as they have scientists who specialise in co2.  Sorry we can't help further on this one.

Kind regards
Phil

Auckland Sunday

Hi Guys Firstly just like to say what a fantastic job you do and I always come here for the weather as you are by far and away the most accurate. I am playing golf early Sunday morning and just wanted to know if I will need to take my wet weather gear? Best Regards Mark

Yes I would take your wet

Yes I would take your wet weather gear.

Thanks! :)

Is Hawera having 25.5

Is Hawera having 25.5 millimetres of rain on Sunday

Perhaps getting close to that

Perhaps getting close to that figure but may be just shy at around 20mm. But we'll see, an isolated downpour could mean some spots get over 25mm. For the most part, around 20mm though.

WW

tornado (auckland possible storms on sunday)

in regards to the thunder on sunday. I hope there isnt any severe storms like bad hail or any tornadoes like that. just smaller hail will be ok. heavy rain would be good. aand i would like to hear thunder.

Saturday Auckland 7/12

Hi Team, Quite confused about the forecast for Saturday. We have cricket from 11:00am till later in the evening over the shore in Auckland, you reckon we would be able to sneak in a game or is it going to be really wet? Rain maps suggests it might be dry. Thanks in advance Jeff

Hi Jeff - Simply look at the

Hi Jeff - Simply look at the hourly forecasts for Saturday as it will be the best guide for you on top of our detailed forecast. It really only shows a moderate risk of an isolated afternoon shower/downpour somewhere in the Auckland region - perhaps more likely inland north of the city or south of the city. At this stage Saturday leans mostly dry.

Cheers

Phil

Weather saturday

I'm hoping for good weather tomorrow in auckland with a party in the backyard and wanting to know if it will hold and weather I need cover. Thank you!

Hi there, keep an eye on the

Hi there, keep an eye on the hourly % of rain as you'll see where the risks are. Any showers that form you can then track on the rain radar.  All the best for tomorrow - hopefully it's a cracker of a day!

Rain forecast

Could the graphs (data) show what level of rain (mm for the period, eg 2 hours) is predicted please? It would be much more informative (realistic?) to know whether the 30% chance of rain may deliver 10mm of rain in the same period, rather than approximately 1 chance in 3 of getting wet! In anticipation, thank you.

Hi there - we are improving

Hi there - we are improving the layout and adding better rainfall data we hope by the end of January. So watch this space :) In the meantime, you can also use our website www.RuralWeather.co.nz to really drill down on rainfall totals. It may take 10 seconds to load the page up first time you visit due to so much data (we are lifting that speed early next year too).

Cheers :)

Life Education Charity day Sunday 15th - Ellerslie Racecourse

Yep, Year 15 of our event at Ellerslie Racecourse is coming up on Sunday 15 December from noon. You have done a great job in forecasting for us...how do we look this time? Cheers

At this stage it may be

At this stage it may be looking fairly anticyclonic meaning settled. All the details re sun, morning cloud, chance of a shower, temperature etc will come out in the wash as we get closer to the time but for now..... mainly settled, light winds.

Hopefully it ends up being a good day. The above can change being 10 days out so not locked in yet.

Cheers
Aaron

Sunday 15th from 1pm

Thanks Aaron Rain Radar looks OK for Sunday 15th, although forecast says Rain How do we look? Cheers

I'm seeing conflicting

I'm seeing conflicting information at the moment, maybe give it another day or two? Either way doesn't look like terribly wet weather if there were any showers about, am leaning towards it being a mainly dry day.

Cheers, Aaron

Sunday 8th Dec

Hi, Do you see any changes possibly happening to the thunderstorms on Sunday 8th Dec in Auckland? Thank you

Yes in that any thunderstorm

Yes in that any thunderstorm activity if it does happen may not be till later in the day with a front, may just be the odd shower before then. Keep an eye on your Auckland forecast :)

Warm weather in Auckland.

I'm curious, whats the chance of North Shore suburbs reaching 27 or 28 for the rest of the week, i'm also currently waiting for the christmas weather forecast for Auckland. I am assuming since we are looking at a warmer than average summer again this time, it will be quite a warm and dry christmas or at least thats what i'm hoping for. It was a very hot summer last year and beginning of this year, and i'm hoping for the same thing this time. Hopfully we get swimming weather for christmas because last years christmas weather for Auckland was very upsetting and practically ruined our outdoor plans for the day. Also its been a very warm week so far, today I recored 27.9 in my backyard (Out of the sun) at 3:02PM.

Hi there If you've hit those

Hi there

If you've hit those highs it may be possible. Not to discredit your temperature readings but at Metservices North Shore spot it hasn't read any higher then 24.9 degrees over the last 30 days which was on the 5th November, yesterday it got to 23.7.

Go here: https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/regions/auckland/locations/north-shore

Along the top task bar select "Past Weather" then "Last 30 days". It's not to say your readings are wrong but there are certain requirements in how a thermometer must be set up to get accurate readings, even if it is seemingly in the shade. But you could have a certain microclimate where you are precisely that leads to those highs.

As for the Christmas forecast Phil answered a similar question just yesterday and said this:

"We're aiming to have our first forecast out on Monday :) It will be very generic and about the general theme of highs and lows around the week of Christmas time - but it's at least one step in trying to lock it in!"

Keep up the good work!

Cheers
Aaron

Re sunny

Not that sunny in Auckland now - thick high cloud seems to moving in from the north! It was clear blue skies for the morning.

Yep, we're in a bit of a

Yep, we're in a bit of a weird weather sandwich - clouds to the north and south - hopefully we're in a sunny bubble for longer :) (Although we do need more rain!)

- WW Team :) 

yes

yes I agree we need more rain. hopefully the thunderstorms on sunday can wet the ground.

Weather for Christmas Day

Hi, I was just wondering if you knew what the weather was going to be like for Christmas Day ?. Thanks Graeme
