Is there any tropical cyclone

Is there any tropical cyclone risk to New Zealand in the future?

At some point in the future,

At some point in the future, sure there will probably be a risk of some sort. In the near future? Doesn't seem to be any big risks at the moment. Tropical activity seems to be staying to the north at this stage.

Use these maps here: http://weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Click on "Rain", you can scroll through the next couple of weeks using those maps. As you'll see, no tropical cyclones coming down near NZ at this stage.

Tides

Why does your 'Tides' tab give weather at beaches and not tides?

Hi there When you click on

Hi there

When you click on those beach locations a box will pop up and it does have tide information. :)

Milford sound

Hello there, I'm going on the Milford sound cruise on Feb 14 at 10:30am and the forecast appears to be 100% to 70% chance of rain. But when I look at the rain radar, there is not much cloud showing in this region, I'm also thinking of rescheduling my cruise to 13:00 since it appear to be getting better. I would really appreciate your thoughts and your recommended time I should be getting on the cruise.

Hi there The later in the day

Hi there

The later in the day you can book that cruise the better from what I can see. Looks quite wet in the morning and for a fair amount of the afternoon to be honest, there is a chance it could break in the afternoon perhaps so you never know.

Have a great day either way! :)

February 22nd 2019

Hi there, any chance you have an indication of what the weather might be doing in Hawera, Sth taranaki on February 22nd? Usually we look at the Whanganui weather which seems to be more accurate than New Plymouth. We are getting married, outside.... and hoping we get beautiful weather like today? Clouds are ok.... any chance you can also make the happen?! Thanks!

Conditions look to be

Conditions look to be anticyclonic around then so that should mean settled and hopefully mostly sunny weather.

Good luck and wishing you the best for the big day :)

Feb 16th in Auckland

Hey guys Metservice is saying that we won't be seeing any rain for a while now? Now that Cyclone Neil has weakened, does that mean the weather situation for Auckland this weekend may be looking a bit better? See Metservices statements below... No mention of the possible wet weather that was meant to come in on Friday or Saturday that a couple of maps were showing? Thoughts? https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/02/weather-new-zealand-to-stay-dry-despite-cyclone-brewing-in-the-pacific.html https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12202490

Have just done a string of

Have just done a string of updates for Auckland through to Saturday, is looking mainly dry for most of this coming week. That tropical low (which it will be by then) looks to pass just too far to the east of the North Island next weekend, but you never know, will be something to keep an eye on.

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks Aaron

Auckland February 16th

Hey guys Just after an update on Auckland weather for Feb 16th. The Metvuw maps show some stuff coming in from the tropics and pretty much sitting over the top of the North Island for a number of days? There is also a high coming across from the Tasman that has the potential to push this away. Other weather forecasts are showing a miss or it just coming in on Friday and then going. Thoughts on where things may end up? 7 days out so anything can change but when will we be able to get a better read on this situation. 7 days ago Metvuw showed a similar situation for this weekend but it changed within the last few days. Here's hoping the same thing happens for Auckland next weekend. Thanks for your time Concerned Outdoor Auckland Event Promoter here :)

Hi there,  We understand

Hi there, 

We understand your frustration. Unfortunately Auckland is stuck *between* two highs next weekend which means if there is no high pressure over us that tropical low you're seeing may well drag down tropical rain clouds. But the highs in summer are powerful and may dominate, keeping the rain offshore to our north. That's why you're seeing some confusion and every model update every few hours may be quite dramatically different (due to some updates making those highs bigger and closer to NZ, which can have a big impact on how far south that rain might go. We've just put up a detailed story on it here: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/cyclone-neil-forms-poses-direct-threat-tonga-sunday-another-bigger-storm-possible-days-later

All the best and check back for our daily news and video updates about it next week.
Cheers

Looks like it's going to miss us this weekend now? https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12202490

Thanks for the info guys.

Thanks for the info guys. Fingers crossed on a positive outcome :)

Is there the possibility of an ex tropical cyclone hitting New Zealand in the future?

Hi there, interesting timing

Hi there, interesting timing as we've just put up this news story here about that very topic (no storm, but the leftovers or some affects may impact us): We'll know more on Monday but here's the latest on the new cyclone that has today formed and another one that might follow it: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/cyclone-neil-forms-poses-direct-threat-tonga-sunday-another-bigger-storm-possible-days-later

any rain due during the cricket later?

wondering if the weather is to stay dry for the T20 at Eden park later?

It should stay mainly dry,

It should stay mainly dry, there is a chance of a shower or two but it's on the low side. A slightly higher chance exists overnight.

Rain - Historic levels

Hi, I'm trying to find out rainfall levels in Cromwell, over a historic 3 month period. I've been searching online for a couple of days and am really struggling. Does WW have historic data as to what actually happened, as opposed to forecasted to happen?

Hi there - we are currently

Hi there - we are currently in talks with IBM about getting better historical data for NZ as well as building our own network with Amazon purely so people like you can easily do this - check the history to match with the forecasts. Sadly we all have to tax fund both NIWA and MetService which keep observations but make it very cluinky and hard to access to retain their commercial monopolies. We're fighting the good fight but currently have no Free historical data, so your best bet is to email NIWA and ask them for access to tax funded observations for that location over that period of time. Sadly Minister Megan Woods in this current Government recently refused to support open weather data because, as she said to us in a meeting at the Beehive, 'We want to spend their profits'.

We wish you all the best
Cheers

Tropical low

Flying to AKL

Dear WW Team I am flying to Auckland from the South Island on Saturday morning with very precious cargo (my elderly pussycat) and I noticed the winds are 20+ km/hr in Auckland. Will this cause any turbulence enroute?? We are coming for a holiday before Uni starts. Thank you guys heaps. Even my cat trusts your weather forecasts!!! D & the frequent flying puss! =^--^=

Hi there Must admit

Hi there

Must admit turbulence and figuring out whether it is likely or not is not my expertise, but suffice to say the weather doesn't look unstable for Auckland around then so my opinion is turbulance would be a low'ish risk I'd imagine. But best bet would be to chat to your pilot before the flight, they'll have that worked out much more then I would know.

Good to hear you and your cat like our forecasts, is much appreciated by the team! :)

Have a great trip.

Cheers
Aaron

Re,live observations

A big thankyou to Phil and the team for fixing up the live observations map.Its good to see the stations where they should be.Keep up the good work guys.Cheers from ITAURANG20

Thank you for the thank you!

Thank you for the thank you! We're making quite a few improvements behind the scenes right now, that issue was a top priority for us though. Thanks for contriubuting your data to the network for us to share too!

Cheers

Phil, Aaron and the team

Feb 16 Auckland

Hey guys Forecast keeps changing for Feb 16th on the different maps. What are your thoughts on the weather for that day in Auckland?

Hi there, it's quite a

Hi there, it's quite a complicated set up around the 16th, it may easily swing dry with SE winds, or we may end up with wetter weather with easterlies - only a slight shift makes a big difference. Keep an eye on our Rain Maps as they now go out to Feb 16 and you can see what is happening. There is also a tropical storm well to the north of NZ on that date but this may also have some influence on that weather... in other words, expect more chopping and changing as this forecast gets fine tuned.

Cheers
WW

Ok thanks guys. Thought that

Ok thanks guys. Thought that might be the case :)

March weather

Hi Guys read an article today where yourselves and Metservice commented on some wet weather approaching in the next 2-3 weeks. I know this is well off and impossible to tell now but I am getting married in Auckland(Clevedon) end March and was wondering what sort of weather you can expect around this time. Apologies for the extreme forecasting required here.

Hi there, no we actually drew

Hi there, no we actually drew a line between us and MetService this week, saying while we agree rainmakers are more likely they may NOT actually bring relief to the regions that need it most. Sorry to be a "Debbie Downer". We're closely watching the tropics and hope to find some relief for you - watch our latest weather video with Phil Duncan as he has a special 14 day rainfall update.

All the best and ahead if you need help please don't hesitate to reach out and ask us here, we're here to help!

Chch

Hi..a) think your chch temp gauge is playing up again..saying 12° at the moment (b) any dirty stuff coming in southerly change ie hail/thunder/wind etc..? (c) will any of that upcoming tropic movement impact down here..? Sorry for all the questions..but cheers keep up the good work..

No worries for all the

No worries for all the questions :) . A) That temperature gauge is being removed today, as it's been a problem off and on for a while now. Dozens more we can choose from in the city so thanks for pointing out. B) Shouldn't be any hail and thunder, the cold change is slow and doesn't bring big downpours at this stage. C) At this stage the tropics won't be impacting the eastern South Island to any significant degree other than wind flows being warm/humid at times - but the rainmakers and storms will be well away from the South Island over the next week or two.

All the best :)

Waitangi Day Auckland

Hi Guys, Someof the forecast show showers for Auckland tomorrow afternoon from 12:00pm. What are the chances of that happening? Are we in for a tricky day or a dry day? Thanks a lot in advance

It looks mainly dry for most

It looks mainly dry for most of the day in Auckand, it's in the evening when a small easterly surge comes in that there may be a few showers, even then those showers could stay in northern parts of Auckland depending on the strength of this small surge.

Long-term forecast weekend of 16th/17th Feb

Hi WW team, Firstly, what a great job you all do, thanks for the service. I just had a look at the maps section to see if any rain was due for Auckland over the next 2 weeks and it appears minimal? I noticed the last map (Friday 15th Feb) has what looks like a storm or a decent amount of rain on the way from the tropics although looking to the Trans-Tasman, it looks like a high is coming, could that push out that rain band? I may have totally mid-read the maps so apologies for my amateur assessment :-) Look forward to your expert analysis of what rain, if any, is due over the next 14 - 21 days. Thanks, Paul

Thankyou very much Paul!

Thankyou very much Paul! :)

Yes there does appear to be minimal rain for Auckland for the next we while. You are right at this stage a large high is looking to keep any tropical activity away to the north around the 15th. If you go here: http://www.weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Then look at the rain maps they go out a little further then our ones do, they are the same maps from the same company.

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks Aaron

Auckland Saturday February 16th

Hey guys It's a long way out but whats Saturday February 16th looking like for Auckland?

Hi there Yeah that is quite a

Hi there

Yeah that is quite a while away, an anticyclone is moving in then. Looks fairly dry, winds from the southerly quarter so that could be good.

At this stage it's looking more positive for dry / sunnier weather then it is wet weather.

But of course, closer to the time a better understanding of what will happen will develop.

Cheers
Aaron

Are any tropical lows

Are any tropical lows forecast to pass over New Zealand in the next few weeks?

The 10th / 11th February

The 10th / 11th February could be a time to keep an eye on, a tropical low is forecast to come down but it's to the east of New Zealand. So nothing impacing New Zealand at this stage but if there were a chance it might be around then.

Cheers
Aaron

Sailing Weather

I'm cruising out of Auckland on the 11th, heading down the east coast. How bad's the weather going to be for sailing. I assume with all those lows lining up North, its going to be a bumpy ride?

Depending how close or far a

Depending how close or far a tropical low that is moving down offshore east of New Zealand around then will determine if the weather is going to be bad or good. It could be fairly good weather actually if the low passes too far to the east. But one thing may be a fairly good swell could be pumping through even if the weather is good.

Keep an eye on our maps page to see what the weather / swells may be coming up.

Cheers
Aaron

Chch today

Hi..is there likely​ any dirty stuff..ie hail thunder etc coming through with southerly today..? Cheers.

G'day thereNo not today,

G'day there

No not today, upper level dynamics (cold air) is lagging too far to the south so the surface southerly does't have very good upper level support to create thunderstorms.

Some rain is likely for a time :)
