Rainfall for August

Hello ,
How much rain have we had in Auckland so far this month.
My brother in Melbourne says we made the news there for wet weather.

Hi there So far it seems

Hi there

So far it seems there has been nearly bang on about 100mm this August in Auckland. It possibly hasn't been spread out however with some days getting quite high rainfall.

Whangaparaoa Rainfall

Hey Phil,

What has been the rainfall levels in Whangaparaoa over the last few days? Ive never seen so much water flowing off the farms in Silverdale and around our place in Arkles Bay. Keep up the good work mate, love yr site and the daily video updates. Best out there! Cheers

 Hi there, for

 Hi there, for Whangaparaoa

On the 21st there was 26mm of rain and on the 20th there was 16.6mm. The 19th had 10.2mm.

So it's certainly been a bit wet recently.

Thanks for the comments, really appreciate them :)

WW

Sorry if this has been asked,

Sorry if this has been asked, but when you say "50% chance of precip" does it actually mean that its 50-50?

It can do - but it can also

It can do - but it can also be read as half the city should see rain/showers.  We tend to use 50% as a growing scale of confidence though - for example, 40% we'll see a few showers across the city, about 50% we'll see them across half the city.   In rare occasions we'll use 50% on a day that's sunny and dry - that's when we know showers are borderline.   When I personally see 50% i also tend to think it's a 50/50 chance, but that is higher than a 40% chance!   For the most part we avoid using 50% due to this reason, it can cause confusion - so prefer to go with 40 or 60 where possible, if it's in the middle somewhere.

Cheers

Auckland helensville

Hi there, if we knew anything more we'd put it in our forecast above!  Keep an eye on our rain maps - temps look average for August on Friday.

Moving House

Hi Phil

We are moving house on Friday 23rd August out near the Waitakere's in Auckland. What is the outlook for rain on this day? I have been looking on other weather sites and they all seem to be telling me a different story. Some help would be appreciated as to when the right time - morning, noon or evening would be the best time to shift our furniture :)

Thanks

Hi there, Friday is a bit

Hi there, Friday is a bit confusing because we have a weak front moving through - some forecasters automatically label this as "rain" others "a period of rain" and others "showers".  It doesn't look too major but could be a period of frequent showers/patchy rain at some stage on Friday, then clearing later.  If it's any comfort, we're pretty confident it won't be as wet as today!    Watch my latest weather video (on the homepage) - keep in mind that was recorded around lunchtime so use our rain maps too, plus our forecasts and that should be as close to accurate as it gets (we hope!).

Cheers

Phil

Australia

This is not a question but just a comment.

Im loving the Weather Watch site. In comparrison to the other available weather sites you have created something here thats easy to read, lost of info, photos and this Q & A column. Brilliant.
Im taking the family to Aussie soon for my 50th birthday. In the past few days and heading up to October I will be looking at the weather over that side of the ditch and again, I can access all this on your site.
Im really impressed Weather Watch. Great job.

Hi there - thank you very

Hi there - thank you very much for your comment, we appreciate you taking the time to write in to us! Have a fantastic time in Aussie and happy birthday!. By the way, a great website in Australia is WeatherZone (we share news stories with them). Also the maps on our site are pretty accurate for anywhere overseas too - use both sources and you should be covered :)

Thanks again - Phil, Aaron and the small WW team :)

Tuesday in Auckland

Hi Phil

We have a school trip to MOTAT on Tuesday, is the outlook ok for this?

Cheers

 At this stage it looks sunny

 At this stage it looks sunny with southerlies on Tuesday, clouds and westerlies possibly moving in around Wedneday.

Thank you :)

Thank you :)

Next week

Hi Phil

Looks like a very large high moving in next week but the maps only go up to Tuesday. What are your thoughts on how long the high will stick around?

In recent times the weather systems have been moving very quickly hence the changeable weather but maybe next week could be different for a change? It has been a while since a high has dominated so perhaps another sign that the season is on the change?

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave, At this stage the

Hi Dave,

At this stage the high next week looks fairly strong but not 100% dominant over the nation.  Could be some sinking air pressure around the north again, which could lead to cloud and possible showers.... also a front in the Southern Ocean will have a whack at it bringing a cool change to the south and east and perhaps some strong W to SW winds.  But the high looks fairly in charge next week except for that Weds/Thurs SW change which could bring in cloud and maybe showers next Weds or Thurs.  Weather is very lazy at the moment for the most part - slower and less drama when fronts pass by (ie, no major change in temperature).

Cheers

Phil

spring huh! not one sun

Spring is about new life and changeable weather - that's exactly what's happening! Doesn't mean sunny and hot! :) WW

Heavy shower

Had a very heavy short shower in New Lynn late this afternoon.

mini quake

just had our house shake quite a bit for 10 seconds in west auckland..thought it was me but the neighbour came outside too quite surprised at what just happened..

Low cloud day

The New Lynn Crane is slowly getting covered as low cloud covers it in a gentle S breeze.

Saturday 25th August

Hi there WW, we are planning a family boat day out on the Hauraki Gulf this Saturday coming up. What is the view so far on how the weather on this day will shape up? I realise we are a while out. Thank you,

Hi there At this stage a

Hi there

At this stage a front looks to be due late Saturday afternoon or early evening. This is a NW / SW change. Morning sunny spells then increasing cloud and increasing NW winds which may be a little gusty. Showers look like they may develop in the afternoon then expect a period of rain with the front.

Check back and feel free to ask more questions closer to the time :)

WW

oooops Auckland weather

Sunny spells are going fast as beautiful clouds blow in S Breeze.

Astute observation there,

Astute observation there, there is a bit of cloud about. It may well clear at some point. Thanks.

WW

Sunrise cloudy period?

Wanting to go see the sunrise tomorrow, are we expecting it to be blocked out by cloud or rain during that time? Or is there not much chance of having clear skies by the east during 7am ?

Partly cloudy skies can make

Partly cloudy skies can make for overcast horizons sometimes - very hard to make a prediction about clouds at such a specific time like that, but at the moment the clouds are breaking up and the moon can be seen at times.  Skies should continue to clear overnight but you never know the exact timing of a possible shower or cloudy area around that time.  Good luckt!

Cheers
WW

We get this "High cloud

We get this "High cloud thickening up a little, westerlies (10% chance of precip)"
Southwest here knew it would always does.unlike also the 110kmph NW never happen,those lighter than today.

 The 110 was in isolated

 The 110 was in isolated small pockets - we have no way of knowing if a few isolated pockets got to that speed, but the potential was absolutely there, so we warn about it.  If we didn't warn about the risk we wouldn't be doing our job!

Rainbow treats today

Great getting up to a bright rainbow over Waitakeres this morning, followed by a brief shower. Butterfly hatched yesterday,enjoying the very warm sunshine this morning as she spreads her wings.

Been butterflies all winter!

Been butterflies all winter!  Quite an odd winter for Waitakere that's for sure, very mild.

7.11pm. Leaving on ferry to Waiheke now. Pls can I have an update on the wind? Tks.

Winds generally are what we

Winds generally are what we expected - gusts in the city around 50km/h in exposed areas, but we haven't seen many of the big storm cells in the Auckland areas to reach those extreme 100km/h+ winds we also said earlier might be possible.  They are currently around the upper NI, but not Auckland. Strong westerlies this evening - hopefully not too bad for you.

Cheers
Phil

tornado? nooo!!

what about in north auckland?? 100kph?

Same as below Cheers - WW

Winds??

Whats the chances of the Winds raching 100Km in southauckland? tonight

Overall the winds won't be

Overall the winds won't be 100km, it's just that there may be gusty pockets of wind that could reach that speed. Much like in the forecast above. Higher risk areas are likely to be exposed places to the northwest, western coastal areas for e.g.

Where you are it may only be a low risk that winds will reach 100kph I'd say in gusts.

Tornado

Hi
My Year one class has been watching the weather very closely and are worried about the tornado warnings. Is there an update on whether we will have one today in auckland please?????

Hi there, this front poses a

Hi there, this front poses a "moderate" risk, in our view, of creating a low level tornado.  However it doesn't take long to realise that the risk of one hitting your house isn't anywhere near as high!  Most tornados in NZ are no wider than most living rooms - keep that in mind and now imagine this front throwing one or two at our entire western coastline - the chance of it being in your region is pretty remote let alone your house. But the risks for severe weather are there - so it's a good opporunity to educate about the tornado history in NZ - that we do see a few each year causing some damage, but many more go unreported and unseen..

Cheers
Phil
