Saturday 24November

Hi team, The rain maps have changed wuite a bit looks like it might not rain on Saturday from 11:00am, is that what you guys thing as well?

Hi there Probably best to

Hi there

Probably best to give it a few more days otherwise you'll be asking every day about how it's changed and do we agree with the latest change. Obviously it is changing a fair bit so chances are it'll change again over the next day or two, might be one of those ones where it's better looked at in more detail tomorrow or Thursday.

Cheers
Aaron

Will it

How come in chch it said it will rain all day today on monday and sunday but it didnt happen and will it rain monday night in chch?

Hi there I think from memory

Hi there

I think from memory you are right on Sunday we said rain for Monday but then Monday morning we could see it was going to be more of a showery day versus rain. So showers indicate a mix of wet and dry spells where as rain is more persistent all day long sort of stuff. Why the difference? It's just the information we had on hand, it looked more wet (i.e. rain) then it did dry at times. Obviously the dry spells got the better of us.

Overnight tonight looks mostly showery but there's a steady stream of rain that works it's way up to about Banks Peninsula for a time overnight, it could stay just south of the city or it may just move onto the city, a bit 50/50. The morning tomorrow looks showery then rain / shower activity may pick up in the afternoon before clearing later in the evening.

Cheers
Aaron

Hey guys How are things

Hey guys How are things looking for this Saturday in Auckland? Still 6 days out but when will we get more of an accurate reading of the weather?

Hi there Yes the very latest

Hi there

Yes the very latest info says it'll be fairly wet for much of the day, but this could oscillate and change a bit before we get closer to the day in question. It'll naturally get more accurate the closer we get. About 3 to maybe 4 days out is when things start to appear in their final form, if that makes any sense :D

Cheers
Aaron

Fingers crossed it changes :)

Fingers crossed it changes :)

Next week's storm

Snow in Christchurch in November,what are the chances.

Not going to happen, there

Not going to happen, there you go :D

Aaron 

Next week's storm

Thanks for the clear concise answer as usual,not like the other mob trying to panic everyone with another weather apocalypse.

Don't get me wrong, the air

Don't get me wrong, the air is very cold coming through and it does look quite unsettled next week but snow in Christchurch, that's going a bit far.

Cheers

Saturday November 24th in Auckland

Hey guys What can you see for the Auckland region on Saturday November 24th? Metvuw is showing a whole lot of rain coming in late Friday night / early Saturday morning but thats as far as the forecast goes this far out. How are things looking on your end? Obviously anything can change but whats the likelyhood of that bad weather missing Auckland or just coming in overnight and being gone by Saturday? Thanks :)

G'day there Metvuw

G'day there

Metvuw information comes from GFS which is a model we look at also, so you are seeing the same information as us. As you realise and note in your question that is 10 days away so things could change between now and then, closer to the date will give a more accurate outlook naturally. Sorry don't have any magic crystal ball (I wish!) that will tell me the likely hood of it missing Auckland or whether it will be coming in overnight and be gone by Saturday etc. Will just have to keep an eye on things.

Keep checking Metvuw as Saturday get's closer, feel free to come back and ask closer to the time if you like also.

Cheers
WW

Ok thanks guys!

Ok thanks guys!

Hi there

Travelling to Queenstown for outdoor wedding this coming saturday. How heavy is the rain going to be in the afternoon and is it widespread or isolated? cheers e

Hi there, the forecast at

Hi there, the forecast at this stage looks a bit patchy for Queenstown this Saturday with maybe the earlier morning having the heaviest rain then it becomes patchy and lighter with increasing dry spells later in the day. Hard to lock in this far out due to this specific set up, so feel free to ask again later in the week. :)

Cheers

Taupo this weekend

Hi Travelling down to taupo on Friday and returning Sunday - it looks like some showers are expected but nothing too major? what is the best day for outdoor activities do you think? Des

G'day Des Your right it's

G'day Des

Your right it's mostly just a shower or two about.

Friday sees mostly cloudy skies with as you mentioned a shower or two at times during the day, winds from the north. Overnight a band of rain moves through then clearing with sunny spells developing in the morning on Saturday, mainly dry for the rest of the day. Cloud will be thicker towards the eastern ranges when in Taupo, sunnier skies further west.

Sunday looks like cloudy areas, brief sun at times. There may also be a shower or two about, especially late afternoon / evening with long dry spells at other points in the day.

Saturday may be the best day after that early rain clears.

Have a good time! :)

Mt smart Friday night

Hello, What's the weather looking like for mt smart stadium on Friday 11th nov? I keep seeing rain. Concert is from 7pm to 11pm.

Hi there There is a Friday

Hi there

There is a Friday 9th November, the 11th is a Sunday.

Either way Friday is looking mostly cloudy, chance of a shower or two otherwise it's looking mainly dry. It's not till late evening / overnight that a front moves in bringing a more period of sustained showers / rain.

So hopefully the concert will be finished before that front moves in :)

Cheers
Aaron

thank you

thank you! yes Friday 9th Nov. Fingers crossed & good news.

Super long range forecast

Hi There! We've got a concert scheduled for the 18th November - just wondering if there are any early indications for what the general weather might be around this time. Totally understand if there are no indications or maps :)

G'day there The longest of

G'day there

The longest of the long range maps indicate it will be very changeable around then, it's a bit up in the air at the moment as to what will happen exactly as it's just too far out as you mention. But I can say it does look changable, either dry or wet potentially??

Sorry not much help right now. Come back and ask closer to the time if you like! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there! Is there any update

Hi there! Is there any update on this? :)

Hi there, the latest reliable

Hi there, the latest reliable models suggests high pressure is still dominating around then so looking mainly dry and calm at this stage, with a low chance of an afternoon shower possibly.

SPEEDWAY

Hi im looking to go to speedway in Tauranga tonight how much rain will we get ?

7 to 9 November

Hi I am convening a conference in Auckland and have night time activities booked including a harbour cruise on Friday the 9th I’m nervous about wind as it may cancel if the winds are to high

Hi there I can't tell you

Hi there

I can't tell you anything too exact right now as the dates you mention are a week away. But suffice to say long range maps show anticyclonic conditions around then so it may actually be quite settled which is what you want. We'll have to wait and see how things unfold as those dates get closer.

Cheers

Fishing at Kaipara Harbour Saturday

Hi, we are planning to go out on a fishing trip on Saturday at Kaipara Harbour on Saturday, can you tell meh is it safe to be out at sea, what are the conditions like Wind Speed, Swell & Temp, Thank you

Hi thereWeather wise it's

Hi there

Weather wise it's looking mostly cloudy, a few spots of rain possible in the afternoon otherwise mainly dry, rain is more likely overnight. Winds from the northwest rising to 30 km/h during the morning, perhaps 35 to 40 km/h at times from afternoon.

A high around 18 degrees. The swell could be up to 2m rolling through the heads, in more sheltered parts of the harbour it may be a 1m swell.

Whether it is safe or not that is a job for your skipper to determine with weather information he has at hand, personally it doesn't look like the best day to go fishing perhaps but I've seen worse.

Cheers
Aaron

Wednesday 7th to Friday 9th next week

Hi and thanks for the

Hi and thanks for the question. At this stage it looks as though next Wednesday looks to be the calmest with the windiest weather moving in on Thursday and peaking on Friday.

micro climate

Was wondering if you had any thoughts on something that has puzzled me recently I used to work in the wine industry and was told many times that Waiheke Island had a micro climate that was hotter than the rest of the Auckland area. This was a reason why they could produce a better quality of some grape varieities than other areas in auckland.But by looking at daily weather reports it seems that waiheke is generally colder than mainland auckland. what am i missing here?

I'm no expert on Waiheke

I'm no expert on Waiheke (maybe Phil will chip in here) but overnight temperatures would probably be higher than for Auckland, being a smaller landmass surrounded by water. Being out in the Gulf it can also catch different types of weather that Auckland misses out on, especially in southeasterly airflows.

Daytime high's I wouldn't think would be much higher than elsewhere around Auckland, perhaps a tad cooler on average due to the small landmass in summer. Depending on the wind of the day the sheltered side of the Island would see higher temperatures but that would be the same for anywhere.

It'll be those overnight lows not dipping down as much which may provide a greater variety of plant life perhaps as they are not getting nailed by cold temperatures as often if at all.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi Aaron, I am a Waiheke

Hi Aaron, I am a Waiheke resident, and live on the Northern side of the island. The day time highs are usually higher than Auckland, contrary to what you just said in your comment. I usually use the weather watch site to see the temperatures registered for Palm Beach, which is the bay next to where I live. All of last week the temps were between 3 and 5 degrees warmer than those being recorded on your site for Auckland. Cheers, Tim

I could be wrong, once again

I could be wrong, once again I'm not an expert in terms of Waiheke. While our live observation map is definitely useful, unless temperature gauges / sensors are calibrated correctly and put in an environment to give accurate readings then there is the chance they could read slightly incorrectly. That goes for any gauge / sensor in any location.

The only information I have on hand is the annual mean temp for Waiheke is 15.2 degrees (NIWA report 2011), Auckland's can range from 15.1 to 15.9 depending what part of the city you take the reading from.

https://www.niwa.co.nz/sites/niwa.co.nz/files/updated_2011_annual_stats_...

Here is an excerpt from info on Wikipedia:

"It is often anecdotally said by locals that Waiheke has a micro-climate which differs to that of other parts of the Auckland isthmus. Though little factual data appears to exist to support this, the below-listed climatic data taken from a recent NIWA report does suggest Waiheke receives over 100 hours more per year of sunshine than other parts of Auckland. Detailed monthly climate data, such as air temperature, sea temperature and wind speeds is needed but does not appear to be readily available."

So a little more sunshine on average appears to be a sure thing, being that prevailing winds will be from the westerly quarter that makes sense. And living in a different spot naturally means you will get slightly different weather on average. I tend to think having different weather is not a competition, it's just weather. As Billy Connolly once said, "There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing, so get yourself a sexy raincoat and live a little." :D

Cheers
Aaron

Saturday Auckland

Hi team, How is this Saturday looking for Auckland? I have noticed that the rain maps have changed quite a bit since yesterday!

Hi there Latest information

Hi there

Latest information says it's a cloudy day, a burst of rain moves through in the morning with a warm front pushing over then drying out in the afternoon. Winds from the west or northwest with a high of 18 degrees. Overnight a fresh southwest change brings some further rain for a time.

And yes the further you go out into the future things can change with the weather from day to day, then typically as you get closer it narrows down and the forecast can become a bit more reliable.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Too early to tell?

Hi Guys, is it too early to tell what this Saturday will be doing in Auckland?

Hi there, at this stage

Hi there, at this stage Saturday starts of fairly calm but Nor'West winds will become gusty later. There may be a late shower, otherwise a dry day at this stage. Showers increase overnight and early Sunday as a cold front moves in (and weakens as it moves in).

Weather 2-9 November queenstown

What will the weather be like? Coming for a holiday and hoping it will be dry? Thanks

Hi thereFor anything very

Hi there

For anything very detailed you are best to look up our forecasts for Queenstown here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Queenstown

Other then that it's looking like you will probably get alternating days of dry and wet, then towards then end of your holiday from the 7th or perhaps 8th a large high may keep skies settled for the last few days.

Have a good time! :)

Titirangi Markets - Sunday 8am - 2pm

Hi there, Just wondering if your advice to the marathon runners below for Sunday still holds true, as things still seem to changing... We are at the Titirangi Market from around 8am on Sunday morning. Are we going to need our waterproof gazebo?

Hi there, The best way to

Hi there,

The best way to work it out is to keep an eye on our Rain Maps/Forecast Rain Radar to show the rain band moving in to the Auckland area, plus the Hourly % of rain in our Auckland or Titirangi forecasts. Looks likely it will be mainly dry for you at this stage but keep an eye on those two key areas this evening/early tomorrow in case the incoming rain speeds up a little. (only has to arrive a couple hours early to affect you).

Cheers - all the best!

WW

Thanks so much - excellent

Thanks so much - excellent answer. We will certainly be keeping an eye on the rain radar.

Second week of November

Hi there, is it too early to predict what the weather will be doing in Auckland second week of November? Thank you!

Hi there, yes just slightly

Hi there, yes just slightly outside how far we can see with any real accuracy. At this early stage some of the longest range modelling we use (from America) shows a large high around Auckland during that week but it looks fast moving so can't be locked in . We'll have a better idea by early next week.

Cheers :)
WW

Hows it looking?

Thanks for your great answer. So, can we expect a sunny and warm mid-November? :)
