Well weatherwise Saturday may

Well weatherwise Saturday may be warmer and drier - but to be honest both days carry a risk of showers (30% Friday, 20% Saturday).  Of course Saturday may be busier there though!

To be honest both days look pretty good!

Have fun!

Tuesday 26th

I was just wondering if it would really rain on Tuesday because I have looked at weather forecast pages and some say it will rain and some say it will not... Could I please get an accurate weathe update for Tuesday the 26th

Yes it will be disgusting in

Yes it will be disgusting in Auckland with cloudy SW winds and showers that day.

It's not really an issue of

It's not really an issue of accuracy as much as it is a difference of opinion.  There are several weather features that will be developing and moving across the country over the next few days.  A change in the strength and/or timing in any of them could change the forecast for Tuesday.

Each forecaster looks at the data and uses his or her education and experience to help them come up with a forecast.  Sometimes the model guidance is very good and the confidence is high.  Forecasts from different sources end up being quite similar in this case.

In this situation, because of the very changeable nature of this pattern, confidence in the models is not very high.  There are many different solutions presenting themselves and as a result, you see many different forecasts.

Here at WeatherWatch, we believe that Tuesday will indeed be a rainy one.  At the same time, as of last night, the models were indicating that the storm system may move in quicker than currently forecasted.  That means the rain could clear out earlier than expected, leaving at least part of Tuesday dry.

Stay tuned.  We will keep you up to date.

Cheers, Howard

Hi, in that case, maybe some

Hi, in that case, maybe some comment stating the confidence in the models and therefore in the forecast could be displayed to show how accurate a particular forecast is likely to be?

Its been wet here all morning,heavy at times too.

Thunder

Any ideas as to when and how long the brunt of the thunder will hit Auckland today? After being caught in the Albany tornado last year, this sort of weather tends to worry me!

Cheers

Low Temps (Again)

As general rule, when you look on ANY weather site that give a high and low for a certain date, (and assuming that the low is to take place overnight), does it relate to the hours between midnight and dawn on that date OR the hours after sunset to dawn the next day?

Cheers.

Depends some midnight to

Depends some midnight to midnight others 9am to 9am and sunshine generally 6pm cutoff.

Any risk of fog?

I have to travel to Sysney for a medical on Wesnesday morning. I could catch the early morning flight but I would like to know the risk of any morning fog on Wednesday (20th). Can anybody help? (I understand there is always a risk that the flight could be delayed due to other issues!!).

Many Thanks

Thunder

I see Metservice have a high risk or thunder for Northland and Auckland with the main front due tomorrow afternoon. What are your thoughts on this as you only mention thunder for Tuesday morning.

Cheers

Hi there - we have actually

Hi there - we have actually just updated in the past 15 minutes and we now have that thunder risk later in the day too on Tuesday, with a moderate risk.  There is also another risk late Wednesday/early Thursday which has a slightly higher risk at this stage (but that may change).

We have more details in our 5pm story this evening.

Cheers

wind

Can the weather god tell me when the stiff steady breeze will stop?

It's stopped!  A calm Sunday

It's stopped!  A calm Sunday then the nor'easters will develop later today and turn to warmer northerlies for Monday and Tuesday :)

recorded temps

hi there, where do i find what the recorded temps were for the previous few days/nights? thanks

Hi thereDepends where you

Hi there

For official temps it's better to take readings from the airports around the country, the temperatures in the suburbs can vary and there are many privately owned stations if you want to hunt them out.

Go to wunderground.com. For Auckland type in NZAA into the box there, NZWN for Wellington and NZCH for Christchurch. Those are the main three, you can select the dates you want and your away laughing.

Cheers, WW

pretty cold in Auckland,if it

pretty cold in Auckland,if it clears this evening 0 deg may be possible.

The temperature in Auckland

The temperature in Auckland seems to vary by a few degrees depending on which suburb you are at. The temperature at Greylynn (from website) is 11.6°C but in Glenfield it's 15.5°C.

Wondering if it's possible to list temperatures at a few represenative areas in Auckland.

Auckland temps

Thanks for your comments and it does vary across Auckland and all metropolitan areas across the country.

We are looking at options however not in the immediate future.

Thanks

Best snow near to Auckland

Any idea where I should look, to get a feel for where we should head in early July, if we want to show the kids some snow? We would want a decent amount of snowfall but don't want to drive longer than necessary.

Is there somewhere that shows av snowfall per month over historical periods?

Low Temps

Hi,

Can you please tell me when a low temperature is given does that mean for the night following the day you are looking at or does is mean since midnight last night to midnight tonight night, so therefore last nights low temperature?

Eg: Where it has today's (Monday) low of 12 and high of 15 does that mean it could reach a low of twelve over night tonight or that it could have reached a low 12 overnight last night from midnight onwards. Hope that makes sense!

Thanks,

Lyn Shave

Great question

It's got to be for the period from when the sun sets to when it rises doesn't it? So a low temp for the 12 June will be from 5.11pm on 12 June to 7.30am on 13 June. Am I right?

Sometimes the low is in the

Sometimes the low is in the day hours especially in south island eastern places where the max is 9 from a previous westerly flow and then its only between say 3 and 7 in the day.

Hi everyone, we're soon

Hi everyone, we're soon changing this to make it much clearer - was part of a trial we ran as Auckland is so large we often find the CBD temps are much higher than many other suburbs.  Clearly it's confusing so we'll hopefully have this sorted in the next month - along with a few other bugs.  We've been employing new web managers over the past two months which is why we haven't fixed a few things since Autumn.  But we're back on top of things now, and in the near future we'll be adding temperatures for all the different dayparts for all 6 days to make it much easier to see how the week ahead is shaping up!

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Thank you. But as general

Thank you. But as general rule, when you look on any weather site that give a high and low for a certain date, (and assuming that the low is to take place overnight), does it relate to the hours between midnight and dawn on that date OR the hours after sunset to dawn the next day?

What's the weather like at

Hamilton weather this coming weekend

Hi there

great site and good Auckland forecasts. But this weekend we're off to cambridge for some school cycling. Your forecast for hamilton shows a fine weekend, but the NZ met service forecast for saturday shows rain and then showers? Your hamilton site says you are making improvements to the forecasting? what are your thoughts? should we go with the met service forecast?

I wasn't all that impressed

I wasn't all that impressed with the rain chance for Saturday in Hamilton.  However, I think this has changed a bit.  I don't think it will be as quite rainy as MetService's forecast seems to indicate.  But, I think my dry forecast is not going to pan out.

The way it looks now, the most likely time to get wet tomorrow will be in the late morning and early afternoon.  Otherwise, just a few light showers are possible.

Cheers, Howard

Today's temperature in Auckland

Hi there, we live at Te Atatu Peninsula and the temperature here feels around 19 to 20, definitely not 15.

Cold out West

I am pretty sure the rain which has been falling this morning in West Auckland is actually snow, but seem it isn't cold enough it is turning to rain before it gets to ground level....As the Wife left, I watched a bit in the car headlights & it looked like snow and even the rain felt softer than usual...or am I just dreaming and way off on my thinking : )

Miserable bland looking

Miserable bland looking forecast next forecast period.

Extended Forecast boxes

Just wondering of anyone else is experiencing the same as I always have and that is the bottom of the boxes for Auckland are cutting off the wording so no 5 day forecast is complete. Would love a fix! Thanks

Auckland / Taupo

Please can you tell me which area has the most rain.
Auckland, (Pukekohe), or Taupo.
Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Jeremy

Pukekohe rain

Looks like Auckland gets more rain each year than Taupo.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Looks like miserable week

Looks like miserable week ahead of us, when can we next expect clear skies? Any ideas?

Clear skies

Hi there,

Later this week should reveal some sunshine :)

Cheers WW

Might be some mid next week

Might be some mid next week if we're lucky.

Hi there This could vary a

Hi there

This could vary a little bit depending on temperature and moisture levels in the air. For Sunday it's looking like periods of cloud with sunny breaks aswell.

At this stage we are expecting a cloud base of around 500m in the morning lifting to 800m in the afternoon but lowering again to 400m in the evening for Auckland. I would take those figures and +/- 100m either side for some possible variance.

Cheers
WW

Sunday 3 June

Hi. What sort of altitude do you expect the cloud base to be at on Sunday? This will affect my planned photography. Do you know where I can find this type of forecast on the web? I haven't been able to locate anything.

Thanks
