Weather station data

Hi guys. The weather station ID: IBAYOFPL89 Temperature data is incorrect. It's saying that it's 23 deg. when it's 18 deg. .It's being giving higher temperature readings for a while now. Cheers Deano

Hey Deano, we've fixed this

Hey Deano, we've fixed this now. Let us know if it's working better for you :)

Cheers
Phil D

Weather station data

Hi Phil. My station came up, then I refreshed the page it went back to station ITAURANG51. When you go into forecasts and enter Tauranga South it comes up with ITAURANG51, when it should come up with ITAURANG20. I think you mentioned in a previous thread that you would have it sorted out later in the year?. Cheers Deano :)

Weather station data

Hi Phil. Perfect, as my station now comes up. Thanks for fixing that and your fast response. Cheers Deano.

Hi team, The weather station

Hi team, The weather station at Wingatui Mosgiel racecourse has not been functioning for the past week. It is registering as negative with no temperature.

Hey there, thanks very much

Hey there, thanks very much for letting us know. Can you see what the Station ID is for that particular station? (in the NOW/Current section).  If so we can then easily remove it - or replace it with another nearby station until this one is working again.

Kind regards and cheers for the update,
WW

Weather station

Hi I have checked the number for the wingatui station and it is 1OTAWING2 Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Cheers, Jenny

Hi Jenny, absolutely no

Hi Jenny, absolutely no problem at all :) We've removed this weather station for now and have replaced with (hopefully) a more accurate one. It may take a couple of hours to switch over. Let us know if any further issues. The network isn't perfect but it is the largest one in the country so faults are to be expected here and there, but we're gradually eleminating the problematic ones now! 

Kind regards,

Phil D

Weather station

Hi Phil I have just checked and we are back up and running. Perfect !! Regards Jenny

Twilzel weather

Hi. Heading down to the canals to do some fishing on the 16/19th.How do you think the weather is going to treat us over that period. Thanks Ken

G'day there That is a week

G'day there

That is a week away so anything I say now may not exactly come to fruition by the time the 16th to 19th rolls around. In any case the 16th looks good, sunny with light northwesterlies. 17th is fairly good also, winds may pick up a little. The 18th may be dry in the morning then a front moves over in the afternoon bringing rain. Morning rain on the 19th then drying out in the afternoon.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Weather forecasts

Hi team.Under the forecasts heading ,when i type in Tauranga South it comes up with Pillans Rd,Otumoetai. Station ID; ITAURANG51,when it should be coming up with Mayfair Street,station ID;TAURANG2O. Before this i use to enter Mayfair Street,Tauranga South and it would take me to my station ID; ITAURANG20.What has happened??.Cheers Deano

Hi Deano, we're currently

Hi Deano, we're currently working on a new set up which will allow you to choose the local weather station you want. This is because so many of our main centres are both coastal and hilly so have quite a variation. Sometimes even the nearest station may not be the most accurate for you. We'll be adding this feature later this year in our free app and our new rural app...so watch this space for a fix!

Late June/early July weather in Wellington- lower hutt if possib

Hi there, Can you please forecast the weather for late June/early July in Wellington, lower hutt 2019? It would be good to get a broad sense of whether or not we can expect crazy weather or not. We are asking elderly family to drive to a church and then to an alternate venue around this time. Many thanks, Jemma

Hi Jemma, thanks for the

Hi Jemma, thanks for the question. Unfortunately it's too far out to lock in any kind of weather pattern or forecast that far out, especially in Wellington which can be spectacular sunny and dry, or cold, wet and wintry! Best we can do is give you an update 10 to 14 days out based on the patterns around then. Storms sometimes can appear with as little as a few days notice so even two week advanced forecasts aren't always helpful in a small island nation like New Zealand. Sorry we can't be of more help at the moment!

Cheers
Phil D

Rough weather

I see a low pressure forming over the Tasman sea and deepining and looks like it may affect our weather next weekend

Yeah it's a bit complicated

Yeah it's a bit complicated as there's also a high coming in behind it quickly which may weaken it. But ff the high is slower the low may deepen more. A 'watch this space' forecast!

Cheers :)

Taupo 10-12 May

Hi there, just wondering if you could give any indications for the aforementioned weekend in Taupo. Thanks again for all the fantastic work you are doing here, appreciate it!

Looks quite anticyclonic

Looks quite anticyclonic around then for Taupo so mainly settled weather looks to be on the cards I'd say, doesn't rule out the chance of areas of low cloud or fog morning and night but the afternoon's should be good.

Cheers
Aaron

Chch frost

Greetings..chances of frost in chch tonight..what do you reckon..? Thanks again for your weather coverage..

Hi there It'll get cold, but

Hi there

It'll get cold, but not quite a frost. Looking at about 3 degrees, perhaps an outside risk of something a degree or two lower which is getting close.

Cheers
Aaron

Rain levels

Hi We have had nearly 400mm of rain this month in Wainuiomata, how much over an average April would this be and are we likely to see this increased level of precipitation over the winter months? Should I look at investing in an Ark? It seems that the rains have been coming on the eastern side of Wellington harbour in much greater volumes than in Wellington itself. Thanks Steve Wainuiomata

Winter

Is winter coming soon cause it usually starts of in the month of May . Thanks

Winter months in NZ are June,

Winter months in NZ are June, July and August. But some prefer to go by the solstice which in 2019 starts from June 22nd.

Cheers
Aaron

I don't think Winter cares

I don't think Winter cares about 1 June or the solstice. It's here in Dunedkn NOW!! Hot cuppa, beef stew, heater on. Inside is nice. Outside.....BRRRRRRRR :) :)

Wind

What is new zealands weather pattern during the month of May wind and rain or sunny?

May, a bit colder than April

May, a bit colder than April but not as cold as June. As for the other particulars......rain, wind and sun they will all occur in varying amounts, some more than others.

Aaron

Is rain on the forecast for the whole of May? QUEEN

Is it usual to see so Much rain in MAY? In queenstown?

Hi there, yes Queenstown can

Hi there, yes Queenstown can get 'spillover' from West Coast rain events and the set up over the past month or two has been for a LOT of rain to fall on the West Coast, so Queenstown has been affected by that too to some degree. A similar pattern continues from April into May this year it seems.

waterspouts

saw a few waterspouts out in waitamata harbour this morning. unexpected. what caused them. is there more possible?

Hi there, the warm calm

Hi there, the warm calm conditions around Auckland coupled with a weak low moving in over the city is helping to produce instability. These clouds have exploded into life over the warm waters of Auckland harbour/Hauraki gulf. We do have some risks today (in green) but generally at the lower end of the risk scale so not likely to be widespread - but may still be intense. We had thunder showers in our 4am forecast Infographic this morning for the upper North Island - but they are very isolated.

Cheers
WW

thanks

thanks. a thunderstorm just came through my area (pakuranga) bringing very heavy rain

big fail

Weather services failed on New Plymouth forecast this time. Rained the whole day, with almost as much as yesterday. Metservice claiming 5 mm so far at the airport- yeah, right. Come on guys!

Hi there, your taxes fund

Hi there, your taxes fund MetService. We are an entirely free service and we definitely warned of the rain for Taranaki and had it in all of our forecasts. We also tweeted yesterday how much rain had fallen in some parts of the region - well over 100mm!

Cheers
WW

Re: Upper Hutt rain % rating confusion

Your main info-blocks at the top say 0% of rain for daytime. (as at 9am 20/4) Yet your 24H chart for this same period says 14%-11%-8%-.... Very confusing. This happens all the time now with metservice as well.

Good morning - what we

Good morning - what we display is our general WW Wellington regional forecast, in which we deem 0% chance of rain. The hourly forecast comes from IBM and is specific to the location you have chosen, and this shows any variation in your local spot. We'd suggest if you're confused at all, ignore the hourly forecasts and focus on the main WW one as it's generally more accurate. MetService's set up is very different and their data often has no association with their forecast. Our hourly data is related to your precise location of choice and this is the extra details we provide to help you plan your day but as we say, just stick to the main WW forecasts if it's too much detail to make sense of.

Cheers

WW

just funny

tonights forecast says "clear,light winds and cool when the sun goes down,just sayin :)" i cracked up laughing. you guys are the best forecasters ever.

Haha, it's fun to be fun

Haha, it's fun to be fun sometimes! :)  Glad we made you laugh!
Have a great long weekend

Chch tomorrow/sunday

Greetings..was just wanting to ask you about the chance of hail..met service are mentioning it in their forecast.. thoughts please..thanks

Greetings to you too :)  At

Greetings to you too :)  At this stage we don't see the right amount of energy for hail - but there may be some locally heavy downpours along with a cold change that may feel a bit wintry for a time. There is some chance but the risk is deemed so low it's perhaps not worth highlighting.

But please let us know how things pan out

Minus What readings in Dunedin

Hi WW There are strange readings for the NOW report in Mornington, Dunedin. Everything has been showing a minus sign since a couple weeks ago. The ID number is: IOTAGODU6 for Belleknowes, Dunedin N.Z. Can you guys give the station a remote tickle or a new one? Thanks. Your accurate reporting for NOW temps is hugely appreciated. Indie

Good morning Indie. Thanks

Good morning Indie. Thanks for letting us know about the faulty station and we have currently removed it until it's working again. Thanks for your kind supportive words! If any further problems please just let us know.

Cheers
Phil D

How's this?

Hi -40°c Observed at 2:26pm from: Cambridge (ICAMBRID181)

Good evening and thank you,

Good evening and thank you, we have removed this faulty weather station until it is working again. There are several Cambridge weather stations on our network so it will now find the next nearest. If you find it hasn't resolved itself by tomorrow morning please do let us know. Thanks for your help improving our network.

Cheers

Not showing correct temperature for Cambridge

What is going on with your temperatures today. This morning when it was about 6 degrees at 4am you had it at 17 and now it is about 5 and you have it at minus?

Good morning, thanks for

Good morning, thanks for letting us know. Can you please provide the name of the Station ID (In the NOW box, it will say something like "Observed at 8:51am from: Cambridge (ICAMBRID181)". If you can give us that unique ID we can look into why that station is reporting odd numbers and will block/remove it if faulty.

Rain Forecast for Napier

Hi all really appreciate this great site, a lot more accuracy than some others I find. As this latest rain front is approaching us (in Napier, Hawkes Bay) I always wonder if our ranges are taken into account - particularly when it approaches from any westerly direction. We're in a rain shadow area and quite often when rain is predicted you can guarantee if the prevailing winds are from the West/NW we will get nothing or next to nothing. Thank you!

Hi there, thanks for the kind

Hi there, thanks for the kind and honest feedback :) Yes the ranges are definitely taken into consideration for rainfall totals and we're working to improve the way we display our Napier forecasts (and other regional forecasts) and as part of this we'll be adding rainfall totals and better ways of showing rain risks. In the meantime, here's the rainfall accumulation map for all the rain falling between now and Saturday night/Sunday morning... you're certainly affected by that rain shadow. Probably better chances for rain next week when it turns more S to SE again. If you can't read the key the blue/green area is just 5-15mm.

Have a good weekend! 

Cheers
WW
