The current pattern certainly favours more settled weather in northern NZ and the Far North is one of the driest parts of the country right now. The tropics are pretty quiet directly north of NZ but a small low will be forming around late Jan/early Feb. As for late Feb or March itself we can't give forecasts until about 14 to 10 days out so perhaps ask us again in mid Feb.

Cheers and all the best

november and december 2018 thunderstorms

what caused those thunderstorms in December. and plus the November one that had the Canterbury tornado? apparently north Auckland had a waterspout sighted? what caused all those storms to happen. at least once or twice a week Auckland got hit. including December 14th where the storm lasted all night 10 lightning flashes at the same time. saw millions of flashes. I could not sleep.

Hi there We go through

Hi there

We go through patterns, some are quiet like we have been having recently (generalising here), some are unstable and an unstable pattern can often involve thunderstorms. More specifically what caused those storms? Thunderstorms require warm surface temperatures / humidity and relatively colder air aloft, often a trigger is involved also like converging winds. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderstorm

Suburb forecasts

Hi You have said below that "we have localisd forecasts for every single suburb in the city and small town within the big Auckland region" ..where do we go to get these? thanks

Hi there, if your phone isn't

Hi there, if your phone isn't automatically doing it you can type the suburb name into the search bar on the homepage or by clicking here. We overide some of the data if we think we can do better, but anything from TWC will be local (including the hourly forecasts within our WW ones). We are making improvements this year to our entire website and layout to make this a little easier to find - and to improve suburb forecasting with special lightning data and eventually rain radar too.

Cheers

Local suburbs

Cool, thanks!

Auckland regions

Hi, I like your weather information and forecasting but it would be helpful to have options for more localised information in an area the size of Auckland. How about east, west, etc. For example, I live in Titirangi in West Auckland and that has its own micro-climate. The official met service site shows the main regions of the Auckland area and Free Meteo can even show Titirangi or other suburbs. Is it possible for Weatherwatch to offer some regionalised forecasting? I would welcome your comments. many thanks. Mel

Hi Mel - great question!

Hi Mel - great question! Firstly, WeatherWatch offers FAR more forecast locations than both tax funded NIWA & MetService combined. They offer a handful, we have localisd forecasts for every single suburb in the city and small town within the big Auckland region. However, our general Auckland forecasts are more localised than the MetService "local" forecasts. For example in Kumeu's MetService forecast we have often seen references to Great Barrier Island, which is odd. In our "general" Auckland forecast we already pinpoint local suburbs like yours - on top of that we also add a local layer of live information when a major event happens, such as a severe thunderstorm and we will specifically mention your area if need be. Our hourly info in our forecasts is specific too. Watch this space in 2019 - we're stepping up our Local and Live updating even more!

Cheers :)

spelling of Parahaka

I just would like to point out that everyday I look at Whangarei weather I see temperatures observed at Parahaki, Riverside. This incorrect spelling of the location was corrected years ago to Parahaka which is now the correct name to use. It would be nice if you could update that change.

Rotorua

Hey Guys, Is the weather for Rotorua next week likely to be ok apart from Monday am showers? The forecast here is a forecast by the weather channel and it says rain Tues/Wed but your Tauranga forecast looks much more promising(done by you guys) ....hoping it's more aligned with that haha. :) Cheers

Hey there, Monday is the

Hey there, Monday is the wettest day over the week but most other days aren't looking very wet - but some nearby rain to the east means there is 'some chance' there may be a few spits over in Rotorua Tues/Weds. Cheers :)

Why does the forecast for

Why does the forecast for Monday say sunny but the hourly percentages say 99% chance of rain? Looks like the data is incorrect.

Hi there, we thought the rain

Hi there, we thought the rain might be earlier than dawn but that is now unlikely so we've matched (or near) the hourly data now. Afternoon looks drier but will be a front moving through in the morning. Apologies for any confusion.

Rain

Last year Phil you suggested the Tropics would influence our summer which it did producing good feburary rain.This it feels like we are headed for a extended dry period.What are your thoughts on the rest of summer. Regards Ross Wellsford.

Hi there Ross, the pattern we

Hi there Ross, the pattern we have now across New Zealand looks set to be with us into the start of February. As for mid Feb onwards it's harder to tell. We may see an early Autumn pattern kicking into the lower South Island, or we may see the tropics waking up and influencing the north...but for now the tropics north of NZ doesn't look too likely to influence our weather this month and the belt of highs from Australia looks likely to keep on coming. Looks like an extended dry period for some parts of NZ while the odd rain band and cold front occasionally moves into the South Island from the south west.

Cheers
Phil

Mission Estate Vineyard

Hi we have a wedding on Saturday the 12th in Napier, at Mission Estate, Poraiti - forecast is showers! Boo! Can you tell yet whether the showers will be around in that area between 2pm and 6pm in that area?

Hi there, Hmm a slightly

Hi there,

Hmm a slightly frustrating forecast to clarify perfectly but the positive at this stage is that the showers do look most likely in the early morning rather than later in the day. Take a look at our Poraiti forecast and the hourly chance of rain on Saturday - it shows a 70% chance around 9am to 10am but only 30% to 20% during 2pm to 6pm.

All the best!

Accuracy

Pukekohe was far hotter today than the 22 degrees on the site for today. 23 degrees observed at 5.07 pm would verify that. We need a weather station near the center. Still love you.

Support our fight to free up all the open data we as taxpayers must fund through NIWA and MetService, but then cannot share with you via WeatherWatch.co.nz. We're pleased to see MBIE now supporting change. Thanks for the love! (ps, we're upgrading our observations network this year)

LA NINA?

Is the SW winds going to be a longterm pattern this summer (2019) in Auckland?

Auckland often gets SW winds,

Auckland often gets SW winds, much like Christchurch gets easterly winds. Whether there will be more SW than normal I'm not too sure about, but Phil who arrives back on board this coming Wednesday may have an idea so I'll put a note through to him to see if he can get back to you soon :)

Hey WW Team

Hi Team Just an FYI, in Dunedin, the Now temp is at 21 degrees (Humidex 23) @ 7:43 am today. Our local says it will be a high of 16 today. The temp report is coming from the 'Town Belt (Dunedin79). Usually it's from Maori Hill. The Now temp seems to be stuck on either 21 or 22 degrees. Day and night since after Christmas. Is this a known issue? Can it be fixed? Please help!!! cheers ;)

Hi there Not to sure there,

Hi there

Not to sure there, that station could be reading incorrectly. If you go to the live observation map here https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/observations

You'll see most temperatures are around 15 to 18 degrees for the Dunedin area. I believe Phil says that eventually miss-reading stations will be weeded out but I'm a bit powerless to do anything about that at the moment. The best bet is look at the live observation map and you'll see where temperatures are roughly reading, if anything looks a bit wild and out of place then it's probably reading incorrectly.

Cheers
Aaron

The next few days are just the odd shower which probably won't do much, you are right Sunday looks more promising with atleast 5 to 10mm proged, 15mm perhaps if you're lucky.

Gloomy in Akl

Hi Guys - HNY to you, The morning clouds don’t seem to be breaking in the afternoon as forecast - do you think this will be changing over the next week? Would be nice to see the grey disappear! Cheers

HNY to you too! :) There's

HNY to you too! :)

There's some sun breaking through, I can see bits of blue

http://greylynnweather.net/jpgwebcam.jpg

It was never going to be a totally sunny afternoon or anything like that, just cloud breaking to "some" sun.

It should improve a little further for the remainder of this afternoon.

Tomorrow sees a similar pattern although hopefully it'll be brighter in the afternoon then it has been today. Thursday and Friday look to have areas of cloud but some sun at times. Saturday may be a bit brighter again. Not a totally sunny week but yeah, tomorrow afternoon will hopefully be better for you.

Abel Tasman

Hi, We are planning a Kayaking trip to Abel Tasman for three days from the 15th January. When I looked at the 14 day forecasts they all seem to predict a big drop in temperatures from the 11th. Is this an indication of bad weather coming in? Should I be concerned? Thanks Kaz

Hello there That's half a

Hello there

That's half a month away basically, I can't really give you any useful information at this point in time as to what is going to happen then. The longest of the long range maps show a pattern alternating between anticyclones and then fronts moving through from the west / southwest. The exact timing of these fronts I can't tell you at the moment. As for temperatures perhaps alternating between periods of cool then warm, once again that's very vague and nothing specific.

Have a good holiday, feel free to come back and ask 5 to 7 days out, might have a better idea then.

Cheers

Daughter’s 21st on Jan 12th

Hey team, Any chance of a weather forecast for the 12th Jan? My daughter is having her 21st that day/night at our place out by Port Waikato and would prefer to have the people outside

Hi there That's probably a

Hi there

That's probably a bit too far out for me to tell you anything of use at the moment, current indications are there may be some rain around then but that will likely change in model information as the 12th draws nearer. How that will change I'm not sure, it could end up being dry, it could be that rain arrives early on that day but clears by evening, or it could be dry then rain arrives in the evening. It's a bit futile at this point unfortunately.

Come back and ask closer to the time if you like otherwise I hope your daughters party goes well! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Thank you

Thanks heaps Aaron, I thought it might be a bit far off, will check in closer to the date. Happy New Year
