It will remain wet and

It will remain wet and windy,another low coming straight down from the north next week,until then it be wet with southwesterlies.

Hi there, we don't monitor

Hi there, we don't monitor their predictions because they flip flop too much.  Our forecast is about to updated in the next couple of hours - both Sat and Sun have shower risks.  The reason for the two forecasters being around the other way is because really this is just about wind direction - Sat could become dry then Sun a few showers form in the SWer.  But you can also argue a few showers may linger on Sat morning and Sun could be mostly dry at first!  Either way - we expect the weekend to be mostly dry but very cold on Saturday with a risk of an early shower.  Sunday also has a low risk of a few showers and cloudy spells from the Tasman.  Check for our update this evening.

Hmm, thanks for noticing that.  WeatherMap seem to be having tech issues today (they supply our maps and raw data - we write the forecasts).  We'll let them know!

Thanks - and sorry for the error.

Thunder and Hail!

Just had a Thunderstorm with Hail in Blockhouse Bay!

West Auckland this afternoon/evening

Hi there, we have an outdoor market planned in New Lynn this afternoon/evening and are wondering if we should make the call to cancel today's market - any advice on weather in New Lynn from 4.30 - 9pm today? Many thanks!

Showers and clear spells -

Showers and clear spells - but showers are going to increase at some point.  Showers get into lanes of traffic basically - and you can have busy lanes and empty lanes (clear).  It's hard to know if we'll be in the busy lane, the quiet lane, or a combination of both - simply because of the size of this system.  Sorry we can't be more specific!

Thanks for u help

Depends on the pilot who is

Depends on the pilot who is flying you :D

Snow should clear Friday night and they may well have cleared the runways before your flight is due in Queenstown. It will be very very cold on Saturday morning though so potential ice build up could cause issues. Best to check with your airline on the day.

Cheers
WW

Hi there - please see our

Hi there - please see our forecast above as it's the most detailed and most up to date.  Are a few t-storms just west of the city now - so a chance of a few flickers this evening. We'll be keeping a close eye on it and will update if we think they are heading inland.

Cheers!

Camping this weekend

I have a large camp with planned (20 people) on the West Coast this weekend and need to make a call whether to cancel it in the next day or so. At this stage the forecast is OK, although a little cold! I suspect the ground at our location will be quite boggy too. From what I've been reading the weather system is moving slower than expected, does this mean the there is a chance that the bad weather will spill over into Saturday?

Yeah at this stage it's

Yeah at this stage it's looking as though it will clear fast - and sou'easters are very cold, but can often bring sunny weather.  This site might be helpful for you: http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/Greymouth+New+Zealand+NZXX0012?dp=windsdp

Cheers and all the best - dress for freezing conditions!

chance of precipitation

How is chance of precipitation measured?

There are two factors to

There are two factors to consider.

One is what is the actual chance of rain or showers happening on a given day for the whole city in general.

The second factor is how much of a percentage will the forecast precipitation cover the city in question. Rain we will often quote a higher percentage factor as rain systems generally cover a much broader area. Showers are often here and there sort've thing's so are often quoted at around 60% for example.

Interpretation of rain percentage

Hi Aaron
I've often wondered about the rain percentage. Just to be clear, if WW says that Auckland has a rain chance of 60%, should I read that as:
"60% of the Auckland conurbation is expected to receive rain" or
"if I stand still in a 'normal weather spot' in Auckland, I'll be rained on for 60% of the time" or
"if I stand still in a 'normal weather spot' in Auckland, I have a 60% chance of getting wet/drowned" or
"60% means 'don't blame me'" (compared with "30% means 'don't be surprized'; 10% means 'worth a risk') or
"there is a 60% chance that the wet system will be in the vicinity around that time" or
something else.
I'm keen to have a sentence in my head when I read the percentage.
Ta heaps.
Wayne

Hi Wayne - good question!  It

Hi Wayne - good question!  It can be argued two ways - that 60% of the city will see showers, or that 60% is slightly higher than moderate chance of a shower at your place.  We tend to actually combine both of those when we make the percentage.  It's there as a guide only to add another dimension to the precipitation prediction.  

If we had 40% chance of showers, then chances are the day will be mostly dry - or that they will be isolated.
If we had a 40% chance of rain (rather than showers) then that would indicate the front is very weak.

We have plans to make the site a little more self explanatory - which we hope to do that in the coming months.

Cheers

Snow in Auckland

What is the likelyhood of a small snow fall in the ranges around Auckland later this week?

Looking fairly unlikely at

Looking fairly unlikely at this point in time. While the air being dragged up from down south is expected to be very cold it is now being modeled not as cold as before.

How

breezy will the winds be tonight & tomorrow?

Why

are the forecasts changing so much every day? Seems to be different every few hours.

Weather models / data has

Weather models / data has been very changeable lately, with often no two days having a hint of similarity which has been unusual. It's been a challenging time lately getting things nailed down correctly.

Things are starting to stack up a little more now so hopefully there will be more consistency from now on.

Cheers
