Getting married on Saturday.

Getting married on Saturday. Is the weather forecast likely to change for 14th April in Auckland.

Saturday currently looks like

Saturday currently looks like a mostly cloudy morning with a shower or two then increasing dry areas into the afternoon with sun breaking through. Moderate winds from the southwest and highs in the high teens.

This forecast will likely change somewhat between now and then as it's 6 days away, to what degree is yet to be seen.

Hope your wedding day goes well either way! :)

I see rain is in the forecast

I see rain is in the forecast for Saturday. Will this stop in afternoon?

Saturday may end up being

Saturday may end up being quite difficuilt to forecast for, as you can see in these maps:

http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

There is a narrow band of rain plonked almost right over the Auckland region, so currently that is the forecast I would be going with. Some rain, clearing away mid to late afternoon and sunny areas developing. But this could still change as a small shift in this band of rain will obviously result in a different forecast. Some other models are looking very similar however not showing the rain not clearing till evening or even overnight.

Hope there is a plan B!

Cheers
Aaron

Tide chart

Hello can you please add to the Tide Charts , ONEHUNGA . im surprised it is not included in the list already at the Manukau harbour is very popular . Thanks V8MPH

Hi there,You may want to

Hi there,
You may want to contact MetOcean directly at Weathermap.co.nz as they provide all these marine forecasts/tides. We'll certainly follow up for you. We're looking to expand our marine products within the next 12 months, but a work in progress for a small business like WeatherWatch. MetOcean/Weathermap kindly provides all tide data to WeatherWatch (and they are owned by MetService these days too).

Website clock issues

Hi WW Team Nothing weather related, you guys are the best and most accurate in NZ, but the website clock is 3 minutes fast. Just thought I'd let you know. Cheers AC

Rain radar

What is the link to the live rain radar page please

Hi there, in New Zealand the

Hi there, in New Zealand the tax funded public rain radar can be viewed via the NZ Government's website which is MetService.com. In ALL other western nations on earth we'd be able to display it here for you at no charge but NZ currently has a different set up that places a Government agency ahead of providing the best public weather services.

Cheers

There will be sunny spells at times but the odd shower about also, it will be like that for today through to Sunday. Monday is the day condtions finally clear up and there is mostly sunny and dry conditions by the looks of things currently. Temperatures throughout the weekend will be in the low twenties.

Hope that helps!

Saturday weather Auckland

What's the weather like for Saturday for Mt Smart Auckland? I am seeing mixed forecasts over the internet.

Hi there It's looking much

Hi there

It's looking much like how we have it forecast on our Auckland forecast page, sunny spells and the risk of isolated showers. The greatest chance of showers being late afternoon / evening. Winds light tending northerly.

It's not really an exact or specific forecast so to speak but the nature of isolated showers means they are quite hit and miss, you may get a few but you may get none.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Good site Phillip and Team

Hi Phillip, Really good weather site. You must have some good basic early training at Te Aroha College ??? Cannot say you would have learnt much from me which probably helped you a lot in the long run. Keep up the good work. Denver R.

Hey there Mr R!  Great to

Hey there Mr R! 

Great to hear from you and thank you for the kind message. I can definitely say that Te Aroha College gave me some strong building blocks. Mr Whitehouse was probably the most influencial on me (due to Geography) but I do remember enjoying your subject (although our actual class was a naughty one from memory!). I hope all is well with you!
Thanks again for the message was really nice to get.

Hi there

Basically how we've got it forecast at the moment, a mix of sun and cloud with the chance of an isolated shower, the risk of a shower is greatest late afternoon / evening but could occur any time. Temperatures in the low to mid twenties.

Hope that helps! :)

Easter weekend

Hi, we are planning to do the Tongariro crossing Saturday or sunday of Easter weekend, hows it looking ? thanks Sandy

Hi there That far out I'm not

Hi there

That far out I'm not sure anything I tell you now will work out by the time Easter weekend comes around, the pattern looks a little disturbed around then with fronts and rain / wind in the mix, the timing of which I can't say as that'll change between now and then. Keep an eye on the this site and as we get closer to Easter Weekend Phil will talk about it in his videos and bring a bit more detail to the situation.

One Tree Point Eastern Northland - Cyclone Linda

Hi Philip I am in One Tree Point, just south of Whangarei on the edge of Whangarei Harbour. Just for your curiosity - calm morning and suddenly, an hour ago (1 30 pm Saturday) really 'out of the blue' a huge gust of wind which blew my plastic green house over and outdoor furniture around, then teeming rain and more high wind for the last hour. Could this be the remnants of Linda calling? Just for your info, no need to reply. Really appreciate your weather videos. Rosie Bradbury

Hi Rosie,  The winds are a

Hi Rosie, 

The winds are a bit gusty from the easterly quarter tonight. There is a bit of a pressure gradient between that low to the north (partially made up from excyclone Linda) and the big high to the south east. Should continue for the next day or so then eases back hopefully.

Cheers and thanks for your email :)
Phil.

 

Lowest recorded area of low pressure

The large area of low pressure about to spread across the Southern Ocean has a predicted low of 935Hp What is the lowest recorded in that part of the world?

Hi there, unfortunately there

Hi there, unfortunately there is very limited Southern Ocean data available (or NZ data available for that matter due to our Government forecasters currently being so commercial). This sustem is certainly down in the more rare category for storm systems as not many reach this depth in the Southern Ocean region (although 950s even 940s is fairly common). In the Atlantic storms have been known to drop into the late 800s, which is quite incredible. From what I gather that hasn't happened in the Southern Ocean before - but I may be wrong, I haven't don't much research on it. You may be best to Google it and spend a fair bit of time reading through various sites to get more clarity. It can be quite fascinating to read through the various regional records. 

Cheers

Saturday

Hi Phil, Whats this saturday looking at now in terms of dry weather and sport in auckland? What parts of auckland, at approx what time and how much rain can we expect?

Hi there Could be a shower or

Hi there

Could be a shower or two in the afternoon / evening for northern parts of Auckland, north of the CBD I guess you could say. I can't really be any more specific then that.

Amounts will not be big at all, it's just a patchy shower or two, it could be more dry then wet if anything by the looks of things.

Hope that helps out somewhere! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Saturday 24 march

Hi Team Wedding on 24th at CBD Auckland City. Sunny and warm??? Cheers John

Hey John, Too far out to lock

Hey John,

Too far out to lock in but the general trend for NZ over the next week or so is drier than average. In that week before the 24th it looks as though a very large high will cross the country. Based on the current long range maps I'd say easterlies, some clouds, chance of a shower, otherwise good. All the best for the big day!

Cheers
Phil

 

Current weather

Hi Phil It feels very like Autumn has come early this year, certainly the daytime temps have dropped a lot over the last 2 weeks Any thoughts on the future couple of weeks? Definitely a lot of easterly conditions in the northern half by the look of it Cheers Dave

Hey Dave, yes definitely a

Hey Dave, yes definitely a feeling of Autumn in the air although we do still have more humid days in the forecast by the looks of it. A fast change to Autumn this year, just a fast change to summer last year and spring too. Seems to be the pattern we're in at the moment. Looks like a lot of dry weather for NZ next two weeks with plenty of easterlies for northern NZ (and northern NZ like Fiordland are the two regions with the highest chance of rain/downpours/showers next two weeks by the looks of it).

Saturday 17/03

Hi Team, How are we looking for this date in auckland and cricket? I notice a bit of rain lurking?

Hi there, take a look at our

Hi there, take a look at our latest weather video as it addresses this possible rain. It's basically the leftovers of a small tropical storm. May produce a few big downpours here and there - but dry spells in the mix too. Probably won't be able to be more specific until closer to Saturday due to the hit and miss nature of this.

Cheers
WW

Thank you

As an Weather enthusiast holidaying from overseas I’m glad I found this site, I had been using metservice to try and find information but it was so complicated. At least the current rainfall is easy to find on here.

Great to hear! Thanks very

Great to hear! Thanks very much for the feedback :) Enjoy your holiday too - hope the weather is playing its part.

HOLA

It's 08.30 and you guys have a detailed update on Hola. Whereas our taxpayer funded Metservice is still dishing up yesterdays news, their last update 21.32. How come you guys are always on the ball whilst Metservice always seems to be way behindl?

Tongue in cheek.

Was this a major event in New Zealand? Sorry I live in the South Island and it was lovely, sunny and warm today. I hope this cyclone hitting 'New Zealand' wasn't too bad. Metservice indicated some rain and strong winds for the upper North Island but not a cyclone hitting New Zealand. Did they in fact get it right and there was no need for panic updates for a bit more rain and wind in Auckland than normal?

We're not sure sorry,

We're not sure sorry, especially as MetService is each year given 25 million dollars of tax funding to provide public warnings and services. Because WeatherWatch.co.nz is independent of them we use other global sources for data which allows us to provide more detailed updates and more often. Please write to Minister Megan Woods if you have concerns about MetService and cheers for your support!

Hola

Thanks for your excellent reporting and analysis. Light years ahead of Metservice!

Absolutely right, and you

Absolutely right, and you don't get the media hype as well.
