Hi there Please see a

Hi there

Please see a responce we made to a question just below, this covers Auckland also. Actual lightning / thunder is probably a touch lower risk wise in our estimation.

WW

ok thanks

thanks. Im sorry if that bothered you but i see that westerly is making the air unstable

It's ok, just thought our

It's ok, just thought our responce to a question below would help :)

Tuesday

Is tomorrow gonna be thundery?

Hi there If you could let us

Hi there

If you could let us know your location that would help in letting us find out what you need to know.

I'm assuming you are talking about for the western North Island, after a period of heavy morning rain afternoon showers could be briefly heavy / thundery with hail then overnight western parts of the North Island get another band of heavy showers with possible thunder / hail, especially Taranaki.

Cheers
Aaron

tonight

Is tonight gonna be thundery showers. will the showers be heavy?

Showers pushing through at

Showers pushing through at times tonight may be briefly heavy, thunder looks to be a low chance of happening.

Thunderstorms

Hi I want to know how severe are the thunderstorms for Auckland on Sunday

G'day there, a period of

G'day there, a period of heavy rain around midday may bring some thunder but late afternoon / evening the chance of thunder increases a touch. Any thunderstorms later in the day will likely have hail and short / sharp squally showers. Typical NZ thunderstorms really for winter / the western side of NZ.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

tornado

Hi I just watched footage on nz herald of the new Plymouth tornado yesterday. you could see it even though it was in a distance. you could still see it. will there be more tornadoes. in the upcoming days?

Hi there, the weather we have

Hi there, the weather we have at the moment is a little spring-like, which means we'll see warm and colder air collide and that can lead to isolated thunderstorms and even isolated tornadoes. But they are VERY isolated along NZ's entire western coastline so not a high risk of concern but some low risk for a repeat performance (but more than likely will happen at sea or over a remote part of NZ). 

Cheers
WW

Thanks

thanks alot. taranaki is new zealands own tornado alley inst it?

No worries and yes Taranaki

No worries and yes Taranaki is a bit! Also so is the West Coast however being so large and remote we don't hear about most of the ones that hit there.

Cheers :)
WW

is auckland expecting thunder

are we going to get thunder anytime soon? im waiting for another storm.

Hi thereCheck out our

Hi there

Check out our Auckland forecast, it's just been updated and shows a few chances coming up, Friday and Sunday at this stage :)

Cheers

Hi

Hey there apparently there is a chance of a cold snap middle stages of july possible snow to low levels?.

Hi there, yes there is the

Hi there, yes there is the chance of a cold snap early next week, short lived and mostly in the southern half of the South Island. We're actually right now putting a story together about it so look in our news feed before noon :)

Smog

I don't think you guys do, but would you guys consider adding when there's the potential for smog, to your winter forecasts (for say evening and morning walkers/runners etc). In Glen Eden looking southwest towards the Waitakeres, there is already some smog forming just before sunset (I'm guessing because there is virtually no wind, the smoke from everyones chimneys is just sitting there) and the smell is quite strong. You guys do an amazing job, Keep up the good work!

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the supportive message and for the idea! Yes noticed that smog yesterday - the precursor to the fog we have this morning. We have actually built a fog forecaster we are trialling and in theory it could have smog attached to it. The issue in NZ is that the Government really loves to limit how much data is out there (unlike ALL other first world nations) - so because the Government makes NIWA and MetService agencies heavily commercial it means WW can't access tax funded/owned data to make products like this. So WW not only has to pay the Govt taxes for data we then cannot use, but we also have to heavily pay for data offshore just to be able to run our company!  So it's a little complicated but we are getting there - we hope to have a fog (and maybe someday smog) forecasters out in the near future though :)

Cheers!

Rain records

Hi How do I find out what the rainfall level was on a particular day

Hi there, unfortunately we

Hi there, unfortunately we cannot freely share tax funded data due to MetService and NIWA's own commercial priorities - we get legal threats from these Government Agencies if we try to share tax funded data. So you'll need to contact either of them directly. NZ is the only country in the world to operate this way, hugely limiting how we can help with simple requests like this. 

Kind regards
WW

Winter

Where is winter.. it’s kinda scary how warm this winter has been. Really havnt felt the cold at all this year in Auckland..This surely can’t be normal or a good thing..

Hi there, very good question.

Hi there, very good question. The daytime highs are especially above normal and we have even warmer than normal weather coming in the weeks ahead. In Auckland many people notice spring conditions in early August so there isn't much time left for winter to 'do its thing'. In saying that, it was mid August 2011 when we had a nationwide Antarctic blast that brought snow into Auckland and Northland - so we can never rule out a major blast, but as for daily conditions winter is definitely spluttering this year here.

I’ve still got tomato plants

I’ve still got tomato plants in the garden in perfect health..Hasn’t been cold enough to kill them even

Just stop it happening...

I have moved 500km away from where I lived in Pukekohe to Palmerston North and can easily find the City weather forecast but can't for the life of me stop the site opening below that to Pukekohe. I have tried everything! Thanks. Di

Hi Di! Are you talking about

Hi Di! Are you talking about your desktop computer or mobile device? Sounds like you may have a caching problem (it's trying to auto remember where you live). You may need to clear your cache to reset. We're overhauling the site in spring which will fix some of these bugs. Hopefully that works for you. Let us know if it doesn't!

Past data history

Hi, I was wondering if you have a section where we can look up past weather history. I wanted to see what the strength of the wind was for yesterday here in Hampden on: wednesday 3rd night /thursday 4th early morning . It seemed extreme! The closest place is Oamaru where I can find that it is recorded on another site but it would have be a different strength here. Thanks Michelle

Hi Michelle That is something

Hi Michelle

That is something you will have to contact Metservice or NIWA about as they hold that type of information. Good luck! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Weather station data

Hi guys.PWS ITAURANG51 observed at 7.39am saying it's 37deg.The last 3 day's high temps have been incorrect.Cheers Deano .

Morning Deano, as nice as 37

Morning Deano, as nice as 37 degrees might be for some it is clerly wrong! :) We've removed it for now - so it should automatically transfer to another nearby station today for you.  Thanks for the update.

Tekapo

Hey - I really hate how no station has Tekapo as a weather forecast destination, despite the weather balloon being there. It is always linked to Twizel or Timaru, both at lower altitudes. We travel to Tekapo every July and I am across all weather sites for weeks in advance but I still end up doing my own weather analysis of various maps. Comment???

Hi there, you'd need to ask

Hi there, you'd need to ask MetService about this as we're only a free service but they are the tax funded weather service for Government. We have tried to get a few local ones in that area on our observations page - but the lack of population there would be the main driver for not too much data - in saying that, heavily touristy so makes sense for more focus. Thanks for the message - we're improving the quality of forecasts around NZ and we do have specific 10 day forecasts for Tekapo you may find helpful and accurate.

Cheers
WW

Opinion please

Hi..given it is winter..it will get wet at some stage..(yes/no?)..at what point is any long range forecast predicting this.. thanks again for your excellent service..

Great question - at this

Great question - at this stage high pressure looks to dominate the start of the month so perhaps more of the same for at least the next 14 to 21 days. A lot of high pressure systems still extending from Australia. 

Cheers

Warm July weather in Auckland

Hi there, Just wondering if you can tell me why we're having such warm weather in Auckland with overnight lows of 12 degrees. Thanks!

A subtropical northerly

A subtropical northerly airflow is being directed over New Zealand at the moment hence the warm nights, it will eventually change later this week with the direction changing to the south. Won't be as warm then!

Cheers

July in Dunedin

Hello WW Team Do you have a forecast for the month of July for Dunedin? As in, cold, wet, snow? Or more like this past week? You guys are my weather go-to guys when I have this kind of question. Thanking you and keep up the excellent work A.C.

Can let you know through till

Can let you know through till about mid July, beyond that it starts to turn into a guessing game.

Northerlies and the slightly warmer weather which we are having at the moment will go on Thursday as winds tend colder southwest. Only Friday looks to see a period of showers otherwise it's mainly dry. Temperatures start to warm up again from Tuesday 9th then it may stay relatively mild till mid July when a period of cold southwesterlies moves through.

So there doesn't appear to be any big snow dumps in the forecast for Dunedin for the first half of July at this stage, looking mainly dry. Temperatures fairly average for the time of year, edging into warmer then normal periods at times.

Hope that helps, and thanks! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Than you so much, Arron. This

Than you so much, Arron. This is a huge help. You and The Crew at WW are the best. A.C.

TAUPO

Hi. How is the weather looking for Taupo next weekend? Des

By then an anticyclone may be

By then an anticyclone may be pushing in from the Tasman clearing out the weather we are about to be dealt to this coming week, so hopefully it will be mainly settled.

Auckland rain

Hi how hey heavy is the rain going to be this Wednesday for Auckland thankyou

Hi there, the latest rain

Hi there, the latest rain maps suggest moderately heavy rain on Wednesday for a time. Will probably be until Monday before we can lock in with a bit more detail as this set up is a little messy.

Cheers

Whakatane rain

Hi there! Could you help me understand what are the odds of the weather turning to rain in the morning of July 2nd between Whakatane and Whakaari, please? Thank you so much!

Hi there, looks like NE winds

Hi there, looks like NE winds picking up and a few showers about at this stage.  All the best and keep an eye on our detailed Whakatane forecast for more details. :)

Snow gods

Hi, Can you please have a consult with the North Island Snow Gods and see what they are up too? We can't get any info from them and are hoping that you might have a more direct link with them!! Are they planning on sending us a good dumping of the white stuff anytime soon? any big winter storms due?? ie before the school hols...Ruapehu isn't looking as icing sugar coated as she should so they need to get a wriggle on ;-) Many thanks in advance and for all your awesome weather watching!!

Hi there, we'll do our best

Hi there, we'll do our best BUT sorry nothing significant at this stage, it's either too dry or then too warm. Might be some snow a week from now. All these highs from Australia are bringing either warm air, or, dry. Dry seems to be the biggest issue for the North Island. We're looking closely for the next snow event so check back for any news and weather updates. Thanks for the support too - it's very much appreciated!! :)
