Comments

Hi there, appreciate the

Hi there, appreciate the response. When you're dealing with winds that light in a coastal city they can be variable. We are looking at possibly even removing wind direction from below a certain speed simply because it can swing around all over the place. Any of our coastal cities can have opposing light winds due to the terrain and the nature of sea breezes and daytime heating/night time cooling. When winds are stronger, direction is much easier to set. Below 7km/h(walking speed) if you watch a wind vane it will sometimes spin 360 based on fluctuations. Unless you're paying a forecaster to be specific to your house/property you'll never get 100% satisfaction from a public forecast and even then it gets tricky at such a fine level.

Cheers
Phil and the team

Second response to wrong again and again

Phil thanks once more for your reply. You are so right re. light winds. Since early Sept there have been so many days in CHC where the winds have gone through most or all of the compass in a day, sometimes beyond, it has been rather difficult but unusual. I have childhood memories of lots of wind in Sept/Oct. normally NW or W. Growing up in Ashburton!! Regarding tax dollar funding like Metservice, not being silly or facetious here, but would that really make much difference to you as regards accuracy of forecasts. After all forecasts from Metservice are criticised from Whangarei to Invercargill and they can't even answer emails!! It cannot be easy forecasting for a couple of islands stuck in the roaring 40s in a vast ocean but with so much technology available surely we could expect better? Actually the UK is little better. My sister in law lives in South England and they bemoan the forecasts being wrong frequently and that is from their equivalent of our Metservice. There are many forecasters there, of course, and most attempt long range ie the coming winter or summer but they never get it right not even close. The don't give up but why anyone takes those forecasts seriously I cannot fathom. Ken Ring often said weather forecasting is an inexact science. Was this Ken seeking a cop-out or was he correct? Regards

chance of rain %

How can Dunedin have a 20% chance of rain on Wednesday if the hourly forecasts are all over 60% from 5am til midnight? -Thanks, Dave.

You are right Dave, that

You are right Dave, that isn't right. Had a bit of a data issue last night which meant we were lacking some information. Should be looking more correct now.

Good morning :-) 9.20am NW of Kamo, Whangarei - great to see weather is observed from Maunu, as we can see Maunu Mountain from here on our hill. Not so great to see temperature is supposedly -37o C 'now, in Whangarei! I noticed this the other day. We can see the new 'Rural Weather' website, thanks, though it often still crashes. Good work overall, though, all! Thanks. L. Agnew, Kamo / Ruatangata.

Hi there, any thunder today

Hi there, any thunder today was going to be isolated. We removed it from the Auckland forecast at lunchtime. Might be an isolated flicker/rumble tonight but for now the activity is occuring further down the North Island.

Cheers

WW

still a chance for random rumble

theres still a chance for a thunder clap right? that does happen sometimes.

Well Done.

First off, very well done Philip. I am very proud of you for what you have finally achieved. It's about time the Metservice had a good kick in the preverbial. You know what I mean. Keep up the good work. Mike.

Hey there Mike, thanks so

Hey there Mike, thanks so much - I really appreciate the support (we all do!)

New to this site, hope it is more accurate the met service.

Finally - an Inquiry

What great news guys, fingers crossed the inquiry comes out to favour you - after all, you are by far the best forecasters in the country!!

I second that.

I second that.

Plus one

+1 here...the way you guys explain WHY things happen is great, showing us the big picture rather than just a canned answer rain/no-rain. Keep up the good work!

Re: PWS location

Hi guys.I've just gone into Forecasts @ punched in Tauranga South @ it brings up Lumsden nz [ISTLLUMS3] instead of bringing up my PWS [ITAURANG20].Cheers Deano

Hi Deano, thanks for the

Hi Deano, thanks for the message and sorry for the late reply but we were digging in to this for you. We can't 100% work it out, but here's what we think is possible...(tell us if we are wrong!)... but the first result for Tauranga South is Southland, the third result is Tauranga South. So we're guessing people are hitting Enter or clicking Go before the results have fully loaded and so are being taken to the first result. So it’s not an error with anything, it’s more a user error and search results not as intelligent as they could be (in other words, we could speed our side up and make clearer drop downs - so we'll work on that and hope to improve by January 2020) - but in the mean time, perhaps just let it take longer to load up and see the full drop down. Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

Highest wind gust

Hi. Just wondered if you had data from last night for Hamilton. Metservice is out at the airport, which is miles out in the country and on a hill exposed to every wind known to man, whereas you guys get stuff from Ruakura. Cheers

Hi there, unfortunately the

Hi there, unfortunately the NZ Government takes your taxes but then won't share openly the data created by those taxes. Put short, you'll need to contact NIWA or MetService directly to ask them. This is the open data we've been fighting to access for over a decade now and so we can't answer your question sorry. We're the only first world nation to operate this way.

Cheers

WW

Indeed. Never mind that we

Indeed. Never mind that we have two taxpayer-funded institutions doing the same job and one of them usually being miles out of whack with their projections. I can understand why the airport was considered a good site for forecasting weather for the area as it is elevated with 360 degree views. However, it's location is now completely irrelevant as the weather isn't judged by looking out the window. Hamilton weather is often nothing like Hamilton Airport weather.

monthly rain for Hastings

Hi there, How do I find monthly rainfalls for Hastings Hawkes Bay Please?

Gday there   Best to contact

Gday there

 

Best to contact Metservice or Niwa for that information. Good luck!

Hi guys..just looked at the opposition rain radar..looks like most of this event may miss us..yes? Or is it possible that it'll be in the evening..? Regards as usual..

Something is coming up from

Something is coming up from the south now, keep an eye out.

 

Aaron

Oh..that sounds a bit more interesting..wind is weird here at the moment..

Hail?

Just wondering what sort of odds 'possible hail' is. I'm wondering if I need to put shelter over my new plants :(

If in Canterbury hail could

If in Canterbury hail could be a biggish size but chances of hail actually hitting you are not huge. Any hail for western nz wont be large.
