Accuracy

Thank you guys, well done with the forecast

The other crowd we simply just ignore now as we had had plans wrecked by their inaccurate forecasting. Last week we almost paid accommodation for two days ski at mt ruaphehu. It was a chance. That my wife scoured the web for a second forecaster as she knew there was another and she could see the weather wasn't improving

Anyway we'll be keeping watch with you from now on.
Kenneth

Hi Kenneth - thanks for the

Hi Kenneth - thanks for the feedback about the accuracy of our forecasts.  Glad you've made the switch to us - we love providing this free service to New Zealanders (and many people overseas too) - and all we ask in return is that you tell your friends and family about us too!! 

Thanks for taking the time to write, very much appreciated.  Enjoy the long weekend.

Kind regards

Matamata

Hi there,

Planning to visit the Hobbit movie set in Matamata over the weekend.
What would be a better day Saturday or Monday?

Thanks,
Elena

Hi Elena If you have to plan

Hi Elena

If you have to plan now Saturday would be your best bet as a ridge does look to move over for a time bringing a spell of settled weather for the day. Monday may also be ok and it does look that way at this stage but it is further out and the changeable nature of the weather at the moment may mean that forecast will change also.

Feel free to check out the rain maps above (click MAPS) and they could help assist you in making a decission.

Cheers

Weather Around Thames

Hi there,

Im heading to Thames (coromandle) for from friday untill monday.
Whats the weather going to be like as the map only has Auckland and Tauranga as the Closest areas..
Im more concerned about the rain then anything.

Thanks
Me

Thames weathers more akin to

Thames weathers more akin to Auckland,its hit by the southwesterlies though tend to be somewhat less showery activity but still windy.If it is NE,(Unlikely this w/end) the wind is easterly and windier than auckland then and funnels through with horizontal rain./heavy wet drizzle at start)

Hi there Will be blustery at

Hi there

Will be blustery at times with some rain - check our Maps tab at the top of the page - you can select wind and rain maps which show you just how fast any rain bands are moving through.  It's changing with each update so you're better to monitor that as the forecast this weekend is fairly "messy" - by that we mean slight changes in wind direction with each model update is changing the weather forecast for a few regions.  The maps are the best way to get your head around it all!

Our language

To the person who made the complaint about our language:

Use of the word "gale" is widely accepted as the short version of "gale force".  If you look at our Friday forecast we use "gale force". MetService also shorten gale force to just gale as we don't always have enough text space.  The difference between strong and gale is a sustained wind speed - gale is 62km/h and above.

We use the word "precip" short for preciptiation.  The reason why we don't say a 60% chance of "rain" is because precipitation isn't always rain - it can be showers, drizzle, one shower, snow, heavy rain, rain, hail.  This is also a widely used term internationally.

Regards
WW

Hi there We are planning an

Hi there

We are planning an critical installation within the next week or so and this needs to be done with the least amount of wind ,could you please tell me when do yo think it might be possible. we can work in around 2 to 4 meter / sec

Hi there -please use our wind

Hi there -please use our wind maps using the "Maps" tab at the top of the page.  Select the wind ones and you can see in great detail where the strongest winds are.  At this stage today, Wednesday, will be the calmest day in Auckland this week - next chance for a calm day will be either one day this weekend or again next week - but those wind maps will be exactly what you need!

Cheers and good luck
WW

Just

a question for your wind map - is it possible to have it in k's per hour like your daily forecast? Not being a boatie I don't understand knots per hour.

Thanks

Hi there - With knots you

Hi there - With knots you just bascially double it - so 30 knots is about 60km/h (56km/h) and 50 knots = 93km/h.

Weathermap.co.nz in New Plymouth create our maps - and next year we'll look at seeing if we can convert it, as I agree km/h would be more user friendly for most people!

Cheers
PD

knots per hour

So happy that I found this post - I never understood knots per hour until I read that!

Cheers again Philip Duncan :)

Fishing

Hi there,

I am planing to go fishing at Manukau Harbour, Onehunga Mangere Bridge tmrw. Just Wondering is tmrw going to be the calmest and more settled day to go fishing. Can you please tell me the wind and temp for tmrw and if possible can you tell me the weather for Labour weekend if it is also good for fishing.
Thanks.

Hi there - please see our

Hi there - please see our forecast above for chance of rain and temps.  Winds will still be brisk from the west, averaging 30km/h and gusting higher. Use our wind maps above (Maps at the top of the page) to see in detail what will happen windwise tomorrow.  Also, go to weathermap.co.nz for full marine forecasts for Onehunga/Managere Bridge.

Cheers!

I think weatherwatch is the

I think weatherwatch is the best forecaster out there and really accurate unlike metservice that always have negative forecasts and never say that it will be sunny even when its sunny outside they always say rain and they are always wrong lol you guys are way better

Temperature

Since when is it 16 degrees in December? What I meant was, are we around the average maximum for this time of year?

Here's a link to some climate

Here's a link to some climate info on Auckland, data is via NIWA - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland

Mentions that in October average is 17.8 degrees. December average is 21.6

So perhaps this week is a tad below average indeed.

Cheers
Aaron
 

Fishing

Hi there how are you. Just wondering if it is good to go fishing tmrw. I just want to know which day of this week is going to be the calmest and more settled. If it is too windy its no good.

Hi there - Wednesday looks

Hi there - Wednesday looks likely to be the calmest day of the week - but winds may still get over 30knots out at sea.  Use our wind and swell maps (at the top of the page, where it says MAPS) - plus check out the independent marine forecasts at weathermap.co.nz.  Borderline for fishing - fingers crossed for you!

Cheers,

WW

 

Zoo weather

Hi there which day this week will have the best weather for central auckland? planning a trip to zoo.

Hi there - both Tuesday

Hi there - both Tuesday and Wednesday look much drier than recent days.  Wednesday will likely be the warmest, driest and calmest day of the week - despite it still be a bit windy and cloudy, 10% chance of a shower.

Weather on 18 & 19 October (West Auckland)

Hi, Any idea on the expected weather this Thursday and Friday (especially Friday) in West Auckland. We're particularly interested in rainfall figures. Thanks

Hi there - we expect a

Hi there - we expect a cold front to pass through on Thursday, so Thursday has a 60% chance of rain while Friday has a lower risk.  Windy both days and colder Friday based on the data at this stage.

Cheers

Temperature

Hi, back to 16 again all week? Is that normal for mid October or am I right in thinking it should have warmed up a bit by now?

Thanks

Its will remain like it till

Its will remain like it till Christmas give 1 or 2 days here and there.Windy and Showery.

Triathlon Weekend

Have you started to take a look out to the weekend of 21st - 22nd October for the triathlon World Championships? Some of us from across the water are still trying to decide what to pack :)

Especially welcome would be comments on the likely wind conditions mid-morning.

Hi there - we'll have our

Hi there - we'll have our first Labour Weekend forecast out this evening - but at this stage we have a 30% chance of showers on Saturday with west to south west winds brisk at times - but easing.  Our feeling is that Sun and Mon look dry for Auckland - but please note this is very early prediction so might change.   

Cheers

WW

Windy Southwesterlies again

Windy Southwesterlies again with cloud and odd shower.

wonderful cloud displays

Great cloud displays of iridescence, shapes,lenticulars this afternoon over west Auckland. Cloud seems to be settling south of New Lynn. Hopefully we will have a great sunset tonight.

Maps

Hey guys are you aware the maps are not working this morning?

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave - yes we contacted

Hi Dave - yes we contacted Weathermap earlier to inform them of the fault.  Bad timing!  But hopefully it will be resolved this morning.  We apologise for the inconvenience.

golf saturday

Hi,
I have club champs on Saturday on Aucklands north shore 12.20pm tee off i know its going to be wet but trying to get a idea on how wet by then , Might actually be a help as i'm hitting like my grandmother..thanks guys

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage we're predicting rain, heavy at times, with brisk northerlies.  Can't be specific as to 12:20pm - there will be a mix of steady normal/patchy rain but also some heavy bursts too.  Easing in the afternoon to sunny spells.  Timing for it to end, at this stage, looks like between 2pm and 6pm - but then we expect the winds to pick up.  It's an evolving and developing situation so expect tweaks to the forecast later today.

Cheers

WW

Weather bomb

From what I can see it doesn't look particularly wet for the northern half due the so called bomb. The wet stuff looks to be further south. Am I right about that?

I am doing concrete on the eastern Coromandel on the weekend so the drier the better

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave - it's still a bit

Hi Dave - it's still a bit tricky to be precise with these systems.  They are quite unpredictable this far out, however it does appear that you're right - most of the rain looks like it will be south of Waikato, it will move through much quicker for us in the north.  Your best bet is to use our rain maps in the Maps tab above - that way you can plot the rain (and intensity) across stages of the weekend.  It will get more accurate with each day.

Cheers

Phil

snail weather

Light showers have encouraged hundreds of snails out tonight in New Lynn, crunching underfoot!

Windy Auckland

Is it me or has it been especially windy the last 2-3 mths in Auckland and when can we expect some relief

It's been fairly standard for

It's been fairly standard for Auckland - and Sept/Oct the west to south west winds howl through this region moreso than many others.

Relief usually arrives in mid November as the spring winds start to wind down....so about 6 more weeks! (but there will be calm spells in between - potentially calm the week leading up to Labour Weekend).

Cheers
WW

Hi is Saturday set to be a

Hi is Saturday set to be a washout? I'm particularly interested around noonish period. Thanks

Maybe not a washout but

Maybe not a washout but showers do look on the cards. Please refer to the question asked below as the answer applies to your question too. Many thanks! :)

Saturday

Hi is it likely to be clear noonish on Saturday in akl? Actually 60% chance of rain sounds like the odds are not in my favour.eek!

Is a wee way out but yes

Is a wee way out but yes Auckland is looking to have showers on Saturday but a few clear spells in the mix are possible too. West to northwesterly winds a little breezy.

Cheers

Winds not dying down

Winds not dying down whatsoever,infact theyre increasing more.

Can't argue there, winds were

Can't argue there, winds were increasing for most of yesterday. I am not exactly sure of the situation but I believe it might've been a forecast relating to southwesterlies easing in the evening???  Typically southwesterlies ease up there in the evening about the city but they don't look to of at all until later in the night and then that trend has continued today where they have continued to back off slowly.

Cheers
Aaron

Infact they were much of

Infact they were much of yesterday WSW this not the strongest direction,about 210-230 deg its the maximum speed direction,they arrived about 6pm true SW.

what happened to "sw easing"?

Not sure there Michael.

Not sure there Michael. Doesn't look like any west or southwest wind eased at all yesterday in Auckland. Would've been 2 foot of pine needles I suspect on the ground to rake up afterwards. :D

App

Hi guys. Your site is always my first port of call and judging by the totally inadequate metservice app (read the user comments), would you consider developing an APP for Weatherwatch? It wouldbe invaluable. Appreciate your consideration. Marcus.

Hi there Thanks for your

Hi there

Thanks for your support! :)

Yes an app is on the way. It's in the design phase now and we're aiming to have it ready this summer.
