It's been a bad week in

It's been a bad week in Auckland for kids being dropped off at school - seems that the thunder/hail/showers and squalls are all timed at 8:30am and 3pm!

- PD

Gusty NW

Gusty NW wind and hail in New Lynn. Can't figure why you say SW wind when it is definately coming in from the NW.

With chaotic weather like thi

With chaotic weather like thi - and the local topography - can create different wind directions around Auckland, but the general wind direction is definitely south west.  Howevere it's constantly shifting a little...it's a WSW wind this morning but will turn more SW again today.

School Holidays

I know it's way early, but if you're speaking to the Weather Gods, could you possibly ask for two fine weeks starting this weekend? Cold, rainy school holidays are no fun at all!
Thanks!

We can give you a fine

We can give you a fine weekend and possibly a fine Monday... but no promises after that sorry! (looks like another front moving in around Tuesday)

Metservice Rain Radar

Hi there

I guess I should be asking Metservice this question, but do you folks know why sometimes there seems to be a blob of rain about where New Plymouth is and also where the Kaipara Harbour enterance is on the Metservice rain radar page? Is it really there or is it more a rain radar glitch? If you look now it's there.

Cheers

Hi there, that's basically

Hi there, that's basically what is called an echo - caused by Mt Taranaki and further north the local hills.  If you watch the South Island radars they have sections that disappear due to the mountains. For the radar to work it needs to 'see' the rain clouds - so a hill or buildings can block that and they can also cause interference which seems to scatter the data.  Those are our observations - but if you'd like a more technical explanation then you'd be best to contact MetService as we don't have any engineers working for us. :)

Cheers

South Auckland today 26/06/2012

What chance of thunderstorms in Manukau City today.

Hi there...highest risk was

Hi there...highest risk was around noon - now we have a "low" risk for the rest of the afternoon increasing to "moderate to high" overnight.  But will be isolated - so can't guarantee if Manukau will get it, or Waitakere or Port Waikato etc.

Cheers

WW

According to your pics the

According to your pics the sun isn't going to come out at all tomorrow, and it will be 24 hours of the moon (I know it's just a glitch)

But you were saying rain @ midday which you changed?, the metservice rain forecast is showing that it will rain at midday...

We never removed rain at

We never removed rain at midday, we changed it from 'rain' to 'showers' developing late morning.  Apologies for the moon glitch - that would be concerning if we were predicting night time for 24 hours!

- PD

Thunder & Lightning

Easy to change forecast after it happens isn't it :) What happened to our great forecasts up here?

Thunder

Yep we missed that one as it appeared the band was breaking up as it approached Auckland at one stage but kicked into gear as it swept across.

A majority of the time these storms escape Auckland but today it arrived. Keeps us on our toes!

Cheers

WW

 

 

Metservice has a moderate

Metservice has a moderate risk of thunder for Auckland tomorrow morning. What are your thoughts on this, as I'd like another thundery morning like this one. :)

Apologies for the late reply

Apologies for the late reply - we're all flat out!  Moderate risk has just passed (as of 12noon Tuesday) now it's a low risk for this afternoon, increasing again to moderate this evening and overnight as more squalls move towards us.

The Auckland forecasts - you'll be pleased to know - are getting more resources put in to them now so we hope you'll find us just as accurate as we've always been - but the recent 24 hours has been tricky.

SW all 5 days now,no doubt

SW all 5 days now,no doubt beyond...forever.....bad news if el nino's forecasted

Rainbows end

Would Friday or Saturday be better to spend the day at Rainbows End?

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!

Wow, am I seeing Tuesday

Wow, am I seeing Tuesday right?
Low of 1 and high of 15 - how is that possible?

Whoops, was an unfortunate

Whoops, was an unfortunate typo, sorry!  Sorted now. :)

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

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 :)

- Cheers, Philip Duncan

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

What's the weather like at Eden park tomorrow evening?

Eden Park

Looks like a mostly dry and cool night with temperatures at kick off time between 11 and 13 degrees.There's still a chance of a shower or two with a sou' west windso wrap up warm. Enjoy the game and go the ABs!

Thanks

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 : )
