Hello WW Team I am in

Hello WW Team I am in Dunedin. The 'NOW" information was pulled from a source on Maori Hill above the CBD, now it says "a Dunedin city..." I hope that helps. You're welcome. You're forecasts are a huge help in getting to Uni. :) :) :)

Monthly rain totals,

Hi, is there a way to get monthly rain totals from the local weather station ( you have one really close to my farm) Thanks Nick,

Hi Nick I'm not sure of the

Hi Nick

I'm not sure of the most efficient way of finding this out but I've found out an indirect method.

When looking at the local station near you on the observation page you'll see a station ID, "ICHRISTC159" for example. If you then use this link:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=

and chuck the station ID at the end so the link becomes:

https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=ICHRI...

It will then take you to a page with more information on that station, not all stations have rainfall information but for the ones that do you can play around with the drop down menus and try find out that info.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers

Matakana weather on Saturday 5th May?

hey weather watch team, hope you are doing great! Got a photo shoot tomorrow at Matakana, is it looking like thick cloud all day or do you think we'll get a few moments of sunshine breaking through? Thanks and happy Friday! Briar

G'day Briar Looks like there

G'day Briar

Looks like there should be some sun about with areas of high cloud then mid afternoon areas of mid level cloud will start to thicken and lower.

Have a good one! :)

May

I’m Wondering what the outlook for May looks like for Auckland, Is it going to rainy like April?

Hi there, no quite the

Hi there, no quite the opposite - at least for the first half. We're seeing a lot of high pressure and while some showers around this Sunday and maybe next week on one or two days the general trend is for the first two weeks of May to be much drier than usual. However we can't yet clearly see the second half but some signs are that the sub-tropics will be waking up but over NZ it looks like more high pressure at this stage.

Cheers

Looking mainly settled on the 7th. Beyond that it starts to get a bit too far into the future. Come back and ask a little closer to the time if possible. Hope your trip goes well otherwise.

East Coromandel weekend

Hi there. I’m really just scratching for any glimmer of hope. I’m going anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter too much but is there any hope of some fine patches on Sunday near Opito? Be great if I could do the lawns! I’m staying Monday too which seems much better. Any good news? Cheers

Hi there Looks like there

Hi there

Looks like there could be some sun break through at times Sunday afternoon onwards although lawns might still be too wet to mow?

Monday looks to be cloudy areas, occasional sun and a few showers at times during the day.

Have a great weekend! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Opito weekend

Cheers and thanks heaps. You guys do a fantastic job and don’t think it ain’t appreciated

Weekend

Hi there, I understand that it’s looks a bit rainy on Saturday but will there be much wind and are there any thunderstorms?

Hi there, there is a bit of

Hi there, there is a bit of rain around this weekend but also a lot of dry weather too. The rain is intense in one small area (currently forecast to be over Coromandel Peninsula maybe). Assuming you're asking about Auckland, but yes some rain with winds variable (due to the low moving in). Winds don't look overly strong. We'll have full details in our next video out around noon Thursday.

Cheers

WW

Thank you, how about

Thank you, how about thunderstorms for Auckland?

Weather seems to be changing

Weather seems to be changing a fair amount with this low for the weekend, at this stage perhaps Sunday if you are lucky although they may sit more offshore about Great Barrier Island and the Coromandel.

Cheers

Can't see how it says showers

Can't see how it says showers becoming few and far between yet other sites and rain maps are showing rain all day. Your forecasts have become really inaccurate lately I have noticed and it is quite frustrating.

Forecasts change buddy,

Forecasts change buddy, especially the further you go out into the future. Like I said above it seems quite changeable with this low coming up. No doubt some aspects of the above forecasts could change again by the time Sunday comes around so some things at this point in time may become irrelevant and you could be arguing over nothing. But anyway......

Weather

Hi, Is your weather accurate? And in Auckland is there going to be much rain this weekend?

Hi thereI'd hope it's

Hi there

I'd hope it's reasonably accurate otherwise we wouldn't exist! :D

Saturday looks wet for sure with heavy rain possible for a time, Sunday at this stage is morning showers easing becoming less frequent during the day and sunny spells making an appearance.

Hope that helps :)

Taupo

Hi, we have some relatives over from Ireland and taking them down to Taupo on Wednesday until Saturday - will it be reasonably dry down there do you think? Thanks Des

Hi Des

Feel free to use our search function on the home page and type in "Taupo". Here's the direct link:

As in the forecast it looks dry for most of that time, Saturday is when some wet weather moves in :)

Cheers

weather next month

What are the chances of the weather in Ruakaka middle of next month being warm still ?

Hi there Sorry couldn't say

Hi there

Sorry couldn't say at the moment what will happen mid next month, being closer to winter you would mostly expect conditions on average to be colder then they are now.

Come back and ask closer to the time if you like :)

Port Charles 21 April?

Help! My partner and I planned a hike in Port Charles Coromandel area this Saturday but weather is conflicting between you guys and metservice. We're not game to drive all the way in just to see - do you have any suggestions why it's so conflicting and which forecast to consider for planning? Cheers!

Hi there, If we all had the

Hi there, If we all had the exact same forecast there would be no need for competition for us to exist! We don't comment on the accuracy of MetService public forecasts, we only monitor our own. The forecast at this stage for Port Charles area is mostly dry with windy westerlies. Perhaps a shower but that risk currently looks mainly further down towards Thames.

All the best!
WW

Thanks so much and completely

Thanks so much and completely understand! :)

Windy conditions

Can you please tell me when we are likely to expect these windy conditions to ease up? Sue from Whangaparaoa

Hi Sue You could use our

Hi Sue

You could use our Auckland forecasts as the winds will be similar. Or type in Whangaparaoa into our search box on the homepage, you'll see forecasted wind speeds for the next 10 days there.

Generally speaking apart from breezy southwesterlies tomorrow winds look moderate from the westerly quarter for the next wee while by the looks of things.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Windy conditions

Thanks Aaron, yes that helps. I have a young wild bird to release soon that I rescued a few weeks ago and he has only just grown his flight feathers back so was hoping to make it as easy as possible for him to fly! Regards Sue

Event on evening Sat 28th april

Hi, I know its a long way out, but any rough ball park idea of likely rain or not on Sat 28th evening ?? Wouldn't hold you to it of course, but even a possible indication would be helpful. thanks heaps

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the challenging question :) Ok, at this stage it looks as though we'll have a big high exiting New Zealand to the east around then and allowing a possible developing rain maker to move in perhaps around the 28th or 29th. It appears it will be all down to the timing of that high and when it departs the country. If the high is a little slow to move on then the dry/sunnier weather lingers longer, if the high zips away quickly then it could be showery or wet. Hope that's somewhat helpful!

Cheers,
Phil D

Metservice has some recent

Metservice has some recent information like that if you click on say "Auckland" for example and scroll down the page you'll see recent information. Beyond that (i.e. older stats) you will have to contact metservice or niwa directly to get that info.

Hi Fave weather gurus - the 'now' info is missing off the Auckland forecast - is it in the middle of update, or is there a wee problem?

Hi there, apologies for this

Hi there, apologies for this but it seems to be a technical issue with the data feed. We've logged this and also put a temporary fix in so you can see at least see something current from the region in that space :)

Very loud bang in Wainuiomata... Thunder?

We were all woken to a very very loud bang, shook the house can thunder just go off once like this? It was raining heavily and blowing a gale, yet half an hour later it’s eerily quiet and still. Still freaked out haha. Thank you
