Agree that last summer wasn't

Agree that last summer wasn't that wet, quite dry infact.

Who's knows re this summer, personally I'm not a seasonal outlook kind've guy but our friends at NIWA do seasonal outlooks as to how they think the months ahead will look etc so might be an idea to get in touch with them if you want that information.

Summer

Where do you live? The Mercury Islands??

huh?

Last years summer wasnt raining..it was the hottest driest summer ever..hope its like that again this summer.

Yep

I vote for another hot, dry summer. Last summer was amazing!!

Tropical Low

Hi guys

How much confidence do you have over the track of the low, on which you have based your forecasts? I note that metservice are painting a more pessimistic picture with the low tracking down the island, not out to th east.

Thanks

Hi there Hopefully the latest

Hi there

Hopefully the latest stories will help you with our thoughts on this storm :)

thunder

by far the best thunder n lightning show ive seen out west auckland this morning bout 3am .. constant flashing and the thunder just rumbled and rumbled then one huge clap of thunder that sounded like a huge gun going off.... nearly jumped out my skin cause i was outside watching it.

Sounds like it was epic! I

Sounds like it was epic!

I missed the action being down here in Canterbury but was good to hear / see all the reports coming through.

Thanks to everyone else also for the reports below, is great reading!

Forecast

Hi, it would be really handy if the time the new forecast was released was put on the forecast somewhere?

Cheers

Hi there A message from

Hi there

A message from Phil:

"We are always updating. Other websites time stamp every hour yet it's obvious the forecast data hasn't changed. Sometimes we will update a few times in one hour if a storm is passing over, no other forecaster in NZ does that".

So that's how things are currently, hope that helps!

Cheers

Life Education Charity Day Saturday 28th@ Ellerslie

Hi Phil
Yep, another year has swung around'
This is our 10th Annual Event
...will we escape the heavy weather next Saturday...from 11am onward!
Cheers

Hi there It is a while away

Hi there

It is a while away but fingers crossed you will.

Currently Sat 28th is showing a southwesterly airflow, easing later in the day. Winds look to be moderate to fresh.

It is looking to be mainly dry with sunny spells and some cloud but I wouldn't rule out the odd light shower coming in from offshore. The main showery weather looks to pass through the day before as a front moves over the Auckland area.

Hopefully things go well! Feel free to come back and ask again closer to the time :)

Thunderstorm

That was a pretty wild Thunderstorm at about 3am. That had to have been the loudest thunder I've heard in my life at about 2:55am and some of the heaviest rain and hail. Wicked!

Massive lightening strike

We had massive thunder and lightening strikes last night in Coatesville. One strike caused a huge bang and took out our alarm system. Haven't yet discovered what it hit. IT was around 2.30am.

Just woken by thunder 3am

Wow thunderstorm and heavy rain. Sounded like there was hail too. Glenfield

Thunderstorm

Flashes and instantaneous thunder from twelve thirty on - ferocious showers sweeping through. Area Hillsborough

Thunderstorm !!

WOW! Massive thunderstorm rolling through ! Continuous flashes & booms! Just hope my animals are ok... Area: Parakai north west of Auckland :-)

Thunderstorms

Will the thunderstorms hit The North Shore? I hope not!!! I need some sleep!!!!

Dude u live on the north

Dude u live on the north shore and this is an auckland forecast...think about it...

But the north shore is in

But the north shore is in auckland so you think about it or therebwill be big trouble!!!

thunder

So the thunder is overnight??? Are you sure wow... i wont be sleeping tonight i dont wNna get waken up..

 Only isolated thunderstorms

 Only isolated thunderstorms - risk is anywhere in Auckland but we can't specifically say where until they start to show up - and they may miss Auckland entirely.  But the risk for them is certainly there overnight as the main front moves through.

Cheers :)

Pukekohe

Any chance of regonizing that "Auckland" covers 100's of kilometers and you need to break it down into smaller areas - please. I cancelled an outing today and yet we got a bit of rain, a bit of wind - nothing like what was predicted for "Auckland". Not happy!

Hi there, we had all the risk

Hi there, we had all the risk factors for rain in Auckland today - but our percentage was only 40% for today (yesterday) and this morning when updated, while we had lifted it, was still only 60%.  Understand what you're saying about breaking down Auckland but in fact we've tried that and the forecasts are 90% of the time very similar. We specifically mention Pukekohe many times (and other specific suburbs/regions/islands) when the weather differs significantly from more urban parts of the inner city.  We find this is actually more accuate than other sites who claim to have localised forecasts, but in many cases it's just a computer programme that works out where you are and then forecast is taken from the nearest big main centre.

Sorry you ended up cancelling things -it was a tough call today. same as Saturday.  Keep an eye on those percentages, if they are over 80% that's usually more likely to be a wetter day - and 90 to 100% confidence almost guarantees it.  Today's confidence was about moderate for rain.  Also, we were only predicting isolated thunderstorms - because we can't specifically say where any thunderstorm would form (and therefore heavy rain) we would have to include that same message for a Pukekohe only forecast or an Auckland City only forecast.

Cheers

WW

Gidday WW. I apologise on

Gidday WW.

I apologise on behalf of the genius from Puke, (and a lot of other armchair experts I've noticed having a go) I reckon they think you must have direct control over it or something.
Imagine their dismay had the forecast been for dryer weather and their precious picnic been rained on!
Most of us can accept the massive uncertainties with predicting weather, I'd like to see anyone else try to differentiate between Akl and Pukekohe on the weather map (http://www.weather.com/maps/maptype/satelliteworld/newzealandsatellite_l...) and make their own predictions.

Ten points for diplomatic answers every time.

I reckon you guys do a fantastic job, I check this site multiple times a day and make many decisions influenced by information here for two weather dependent businesses. It hasn't once let me down.

Keep it up.

Thunder storms

Hi There, Where are all the thunder storms? Going through withdrawal cos we havent had any decent thunder storms for yonks. Thanks

Hi there Look at this

Hi there

Look at this link: http://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/world/new-zealand

All the storms are in the Tasman! Or just moving onto the upper South Island right now.

Early Sunday morning may be the time for storms in Auckland.

Cheers
WW

Next week;

Are the Auckland forecasts taking into account the possible sub-tropical low next week yet?

In a sense yes, the southerly

In a sense yes, the southerly airflow on the last two days are due to this low being positioned to the northeast of the North Island. But after a look at further data this morning those days will be fine tuned quite soon to show more indication of the low.

Cheers
Aaron

rain

as they said at Woodstock : NO RAIN NO RAIN NO RAIN :)

Rain

Hi there I was just wondering how heavy would the rain be say in between
1-4 got my baby's 1st bade just wondering if we should still go with
The bounces castle or not this sat 21st sept

Thanks

Hi there I couldn't tell you

Hi there

I couldn't tell you much more then the forecast above. Probably in that time frame you'll get showers (a chance some could be heavy mid afternoon onwards), dry spells and there might be some sun but sunny spells are more likely for the first half of Saturday.

I could'nt say now where showers are likely to track etc, they will tend to be more isolated in these situations and random in nature. Heavy falls possible mid afternoon onwards (anywhere from 2 or 3pm).

Cheers
WW

thunder on alot of days..

omg nooooo!!! i hope th thuder goes soon!!

It may only really be two

It may only really be two days for a chance of thunder. Realistically the Saturday stuff may occur overnight and into Sunday morning, so during the day on Saturday there may be no thunder.

Cheers

Saturday the 28th

Whats the weather likely to be in Clevedon, Beachlands on the 28th September? Family wedding, hoping for sunshine!

Hi there Have a look at the

Hi there

Have a look at the answer I gave to a person just below this responce. That will cover you as there is realistically not going to be much difference in what I would say for different areas about Auckland that far out. Infact I would give the answer below for Northland through to the Waikato almost for the 28th. When you start to get 5 days out then you could start to narrow things down more.

Hope that helps!

WW

Sunny in September?

Any sunshine in Auckland Saturday September 28th? Kids birthday party!

There is an easing SW flow at

There is an easing SW flow at this stage on the 28th so possibly sunny spells and some cloud with the chance of a shower now and then. But that date is quite a while away and likely to change so no garantuees.

Feel free to come back and ask again closer to the time.

Sports Car Event Saturday

Hi - any idea how much rain we will get on Saturday, we have a Sports car event and are wondering about cancelling or not (most cars have no roof!) Thanks.

Hi there Skies are likely to

Hi there

Skies are likely to be cloudy all day. There may be dry breaks now and then, expect drizzle and patchy rain at other times.

From afternoon however and especially later in the day and overnight there is a chance of thunderstorms and this could bring localised heavy falls. Any thunderstorms that form overnight would likely result in more widespread heavy rain.

Chances are you may get wet :(

Thanks for writing in!

Rain

Hi There. I'm kinda planning to go tramping up pinnacles in the coromandel this saturday but i'm kinda worried about the weather cause it doesnt look that great... could i ask what the chance of rain could be on that day around the area and if it does how heavy it would likely be?

For much of the day we are

For much of the day we are forecasting patchy rain or drizzle at times on Saturday for the area you mention, winds will be from the north. No strong winds but they might be a little breezy. Skies will be cloudy.

From afternoon however and especially later in the day and overnight there is a chance of thunderstorms and this could bring localised heavy falls. Any thunderstorms that form overnight would likely result in more widespread heavy rain.

Cheers

frost

Hi There, A light frost here in Maramarua this morning. A bit of a surprise.

frost

hi will auckland have a frost in the morn or will the wind still be there

Looks like Auckland has got

Looks like Auckland has got cold overnight but just not cold enough for a frost.

Saturdays rain

Got a outdoor prize giving Saturday morning 9am till 11am on the shore...how frequent do you think the showers might be?

Hi there Don't think I can

Hi there

Don't think I can tell you how frequent showers might be but there will probably be dry spells at times but then showers now and then also. The current pattern is changeable so it may work out in your favour closer to this coming Saturday. Best to come and check back as the weekend draws near.

Cheers
WW

To the guy who put the

To the guy who put the comment about Sharknado, sorry I deleted it as initially I thought you were talking a little rubbish. lol.

But then I saw an article on Stuff and I'm like, woahh! I'll be watching that!  Won't put it in the forecast though. :D
