Board trip

Hey guys, we’re wondering what the weather will be like for our board trip flight in tomorrow?! Thanks!

Hi there I'm not sure where

Hi there

I'm not sure where you are talking about. One bit of advise I can give is if it's not safe to fly they won't put you in the air so there you go :D

Cheers

thunderstorms

are we going o have thunderstorms and hail in auckland tommorow cause thats what metservice is forecasting.

Hi there, yes we have a risk

Hi there, yes we have a risk of thunder and hail. Our latest weather video which will be up later this morning explains the risks. We also have special maps on our homepage news section right now showing the thunderstorm risks for the next few days ahead.

Cheers

thanks

thanks this month has sure been a rainy and thundary month. tornadoes have been in the mix too.

Yes definitely feels like an

Yes definitely feels like an early spring weather pattern now, the windy westerlies and thunderstorms/squalls and hail have certainly made for a different month of weather in August compared with June and July

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all

Hiya. Firstly thanks for all the great work you do, you are definitely the most accurate and enjoyable forecasters. Was just wondering what you make of all the talk about an upcoming SSW? Niwa have come out and said it will make for a stormy next few months. What are we to make of this? Thanks.

Hi there, NIWA has a

Hi there, NIWA has a reputation for being as accurate as the flip of a coin for seasonal forecasting. Basically they are saying spring will be stormy...that's pretty normal! It does seem more unsettled now than it was a month ago, but also some signs we have some incoming calm also, thanks to big highs in the mix too (next week doesn't look too bad at this stage, for example). We focus on monthly outlooks as seasonal in NZ can be a bit laughable at times. :) Cheers for your support and kind message, we really appreciate it.

Coming Spring/Summer

Hello, First of all, thank you so much for bringing us quality weather reports, I prefer WW much over compared to Metserv. Do you guys think Auckland will be having a warmer than normal temperature coming this Spring/Summer? Thanks!

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for the support and kind words, they mean a great deal to us! At this stage we see normal to above normal temperatures coming in for Auckland. A little cooler in the days ahead but next week looks quite pleasant at times. As for summer, too far out to know but global trends (and even NZ trends) have been showing some warmer than average set ups for the past few years. We'll have more details about September's outlook later next week :)

Cheers!

Next weekend

Hi there, what is the weekend of 30th looking like in Raglan? Cheers.

Hi there That's 10 to 11 days

Hi there

That's 10 to 11 days away so anything I say now will more then likely change by the time the 30th comes around, becomes a little redundant.

However in saying that this is what I'm seeing currently. Friday has some rain gradually clearing away. Sat and Sun have areas of cloud, perhaps some sun, perhaps even the risk of a light shower or two otherwise mainly dry, winds moderate from the southwest.

But yeah, this will most likely change.

Cheers
Aaron

fishing.

can you not tell us about tides for fishing because this goes hand in hand with the weather ?

I want to know what caused that big thunderclap and lightning last night. It wasnt even forecast. so Im confused. And your forecast said showers clearing afternoon. its still raining.

Hi there Not sure regarding

Hi there

Not sure regarding last night sorry, I personally wasn't on board then.

As for today you are right, initial modeling showed showers clearing this afternoon but clearly they nearly hung around till evening. Just a choatic day where not everything went to plan, it happens sometimes :(

Cheers
Aaron

as alright

its ok i think you were watching the game ehrn the unexpected thunder/lightning struck. it was only one time but was extremly loud shook my house . alarms went off. its sure has been a thundary month.

huge thunder

lightning struck near my house and the thunder just scared the heck out of me. I am in farm cove east auckland and it scared the heck out of me

East Auck thunder

It was scary, we are in Highland Park. Never seen lightening that lit up the house, followed by such a boom of thunder overhead that the house shook and car alarms went off. Then nothing!

thunder

wow. how exicting is that your now forecasting thunder. when it hasnt been forecasted today whys that

Hi there, when the long range

Hi there, when the long range thunderstorm risk is low or isolated it's not usually put into the forecasts as otherwise people tend to focus on it as the main thing. Even this risk is quite low end risk, just wanted to mention it due to the recent thunderstorms. For the most part they are weakening already but there just may be a few isolated flashes here and there.

- WW

Are there bad thunderstorms

Are there bad thunderstorms coming next week for Auckland? Like ones with the tornados?

I hope not

I hope not. we already got tornadoes in auckland from recent storms

Hi there, it's not in our

Hi there, it's not in our forecast at this stage,keep an eye on the daily tax funded Thunderstorm Outlook at MetService too. 

Cheers

Hi there, yes correct the high that comes in next week doesn't last long. We get a southerly towards the end of next week then it may start to ease again by next weekend. Won't be able to lock in until Monday.

Warm Lambs

Love that photo, thank you for sharing it.

When will it stop raining in Auckland?

When will it stop raining in Auckland? Seems like the whole of August is just wet

Feel free to check out our

Feel free to check out our Auckland forecasts, we update them every day. Might give some insight into what is happening for Auckland re rain or dry weather coming up.

Auckland being where it is can often get rain or showers due to nothing blocking weather coming in from the west where most of out weather comes from. The east coast of NZ is protected by mountains to the west so naturally anyone out east can experience nice sunny / dry days more often but often nights are colder.

Cheers
Aaron

Out east its milder lol

Aaron I live at the moutain range between opotiki and gisborne 632 metres above sea level and its bleak, has been for 4 months, not much rain just lots of cold draughty wind. Just wish the wind would stop. Theres been enough sun to operate my solar panels. Just the wind Brrrr mostly from the northwest. With this current southerly gisbornes finally getting a dose of winter, everyones been wearing summer clothes there. And its only 6 weeks till daylight savings. Matawai, Matawai Chris.

Sunday/Monday on Ruapehu

Hey Philip and team, Whats your take on what the weather will be like up Ruapehu this weekend? Everywhere else is all over place as to if it'll be good or poor!

G'day there Saturday looks

G'day there

Saturday looks cloudy, the odd shower then rain from late afternoon, easing overnight. Snow to 800m in the evening then lowering to 500m overnight. Brisk to strong northwesterly winds.

Sunday morning sees showers and snow flurries to 500m clear then afternoon sunny spells, winds fresh from the southeast.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Hey there

Hey team is there any chance of any snow to sea level in Christchurch

The air does get pretty cold

The air does get pretty cold from Saturday afternoon but the rate of precipitation falls quite a lot also as that really cold air arrives. Meaning as the cold air arrives it's just a shower or two at times.

I would say a chance of a flurry to sea level (10 to 20% chance) but mostly you are going to be looking at a dusting on the top of the Port Hills once this system passes through after the weekend. So typical cold winter stuff really.

Cheers
Aaron

New Rural Website

Hello Phillip and Team I checked out your new rural website and I also got a 404 Unknown Gateway error. The website that you get routed to is not the RuralWeather one as indicated to click on but www.weatherwatch.co.nz/rural. Hello 404 error. As with any new website, there are alwsys bugs. Perhaps there are some in the link routing. Just a thought. Anyway, excitement over a new and awesome WW site. You all do an amazing job. Hopefully soon, your hard work, and our supporting you, will spell the finale' to the "capitalist" 'other guys'. Cheers and Sorry So Long of a post. A.C. & The Cat PS: Posted here coz I don't like having to give my email address. Cutting back on that carbon Internet footprint dontcha know.

Saturday Rain Rotorua

Hi there, I've got an outdoor party planned for this Saturday in Rotorua and the weather at this stage looks very very wet. It is planned for 11am-2pm, are you able to give me any hope that this Saturday (17th) could be dry between those times?

Hi there One model I'm seeing

Hi there

One model I'm seeing shows conditions are looking mostly cloudy and at this stage mainly dry, late afternoon / evening a few showers move in from the west. Winds from the northwest.

Another model I'm seeing indicates rain or showers for much of the day, may need a few more days yet for this information to solidify and something more certain to come through for me to tell you.

Come back and ask in a day or two if you like or simply search "Rotorua" in the search function on the home page, that should tell you what you need to know :)

Cheers
Aaron

Lightening

What do the different colours on the lightening strike map mean?

Hi there, it's to do with the

Hi there, it's to do with the timing. It groups them into time zones so you can track the movement and if the thunderstorms are increasing or decreasing, so it's a time line basically. There is a key on the map which should show the times.

Kind regards

WW

 

 

more thunder?

when will the thunderstorms end its starting to get scary. there is reports of a possible tornado somewhere in auckland.

Hi there, we have more

Hi there, we have more thunderstorms and squalls (sudden gusty weather) coming today. Just like yesteday they will be a bit hit and miss. The risk finally eases later today and by tomorrow we should be done with them.

Cheers
