Fog warning

Was fairly thick fog in New Lynn at 1 am. It had vanished by 4am

Wellington Weather 22 July

We are looking to cross Cook Straight on the Interislander on somewhere between 21 and 23 July and are trying to get an understanding of possible sea conditions before making a booking. Any thoughts?

Current indications are it

Current indications are it may be fairly calm around then due to anticyclones near by, but you are talking about something that is 8 to 10 days away and that could change by then. Keep an eye on our Wellington forecasts as the day approaches :)

Cheers

Sunday 15th

Hi, running and outdoor event in Helensville on Sunday, looks pretty wet, any chance this might change? Many thanks

The latest models indicate it

The latest models indicate it may hold off a little now, still, it won't be a great day. Mainly cloudy with the odd patchy shower from late afternoon. Better then heavy downpours though! Winds fresh from the east or northeast and high's in the mid teens. I will say though don't count your chickens just yet, sometimes models that far out have a habit of flip flopping at times, the closer to the time in question is when they become more accurate.

Cheers

Hi there, In the media

Hi there, In the media lately there has been talk of a colder than average July with more S/W weather of course feeding the cold. Is there any truth to this or has the media found an article somewhere and made a nice story for us all? If trends are anything to go by, so far Winter has been pretty mild and doesn't look like ( looking at current forecasts) that there is any significant changes temperature wise in the near future. Thanks.

Hi there, I think it came

Hi there, I think it came from a MetService story as we've been asked about it a lot on social media. WeatherWatch.co.nz's general outlook for winter is that a 'colder than average winter' isn't so likely for most (as that would take a significant effort when globally the world is warming...you can have colder than average periods but for the whole winter to be colder than average it would take a lot of significant very cold nationwide southerly events). In saying that, we have had a lot more southerlies this year compared to previous years, so it certainly is cooler than those years were. The past 4 or 5 winters have been milder than average so even a 'normal' winter would feel cold. We imagine while some pockets may be experiencing a colder than average winter this year, many regions are likely to have an average to milder than average winter. We are likely to have sub-tropical northerlies one week from today and potentially milder than usual weather continuing the following week (especially in the upper and eastern North Island). Hope that's of some help, just some opinions :) 

Cheers

A cold snap on Monday may put snow on the hills but looks too mild for anything significant lower down. So probably low chances.

Long Range Forecast - east or west?

Hi there, I'm looking to head north from Wellington with the family for a few days to chase some winter sun/warmth around 18-22 July - should we go west to New Plymouth or east to Napier to have the best chance? Thank you!

Hi there Is a little far out

Hi there

Is a little far out at this stage, could you come back in a week and ask then perhaps? Either way hope you have a great trip! :)

Clear blue sky - south of Auckland

Hi - I am wanting to do some filming of NZ countryside south of Auckland in the next week. Will there be any blue sky days?

Hi there, the best place to

Hi there, the best place to be for sunniest weather will be east of any main ranges... so Bay of Plenty rather than Waikato if you're heading south of Auckland. We have plenty of low cloud next day or two around the western side. Next week is a similar pattern with plenty of west to south west winds it will make regions like Bay of Plenty and Gisborne much sunnier than western areas like Auckland and Waikato.
Cheers

How come your hourly

How come your hourly forecasts and rain maps are showing that there is no rain and yet it's pouring down with rain right now in Weymouth and it's not just a shower even the local observations aren't showing any rain. The rain maps and hourly percentages aren't accurate at all not impressed with this site lately. Quite disappointed as this site used to be good.

Hi there, forecasts aren't

Hi there, forecasts aren't 100% accurate anywhere on earth and in NZ we face lots of challenges (including a lack of open data from our Government). A shower can hit one street but not the street over. Your taxes already fund NIWA and MetService weather forecasts, we're an entirely free service and, while not perfect, we believe we bring strong competition to them and more accurate forecasts overall. But, if they are a better alternatives for Weymouth then use them, especially as you are already paying for their forecasts via taxes.

Kind regards
WW

It wasn't just weymouth that

It wasn't just weymouth that was wet it was the whole of east and South Auckland and it wasn't a shower it was rain no point blaming the government if you have weather information from multiple sources

Hi there. As I said, no

Hi there Anonymous, As I said, no forecaster is perfect and you're using an entirely free service over top of the Government ones you help pay for in your taxes. I have no idea what you want us to do about your complaint, we work hard to be as accurate as we can but we don't actually make the weather. If you'd like to give us some funding we'd be happy to focus more on you. 

All the best,

PD

past 12hrs temp data

Hello, it's there some where, or some way to get the temperature data for the past 12 hours or so, for a specific region (waimauku, Auckland)? Our thermometer shows it got to minus 5, but it was out in the open, and who knows how accurate it is. (even raw, spreadsheet-type data would be great). Cheers, Suzanna

Hi there Suzanna.

Hi there Suzanna. Unfortunately NZ is the only country in the western world where the two Government agencies (MetService and NIWA) are given tax funding to provide data but won't share that data in true free open terms. So we can't provide you with an easy answer (as we could do if we lived in say Australia, Canada, USA, UK, Japan, South Africa etc). The good news is that an independent Government MBIE review (released in January) says NZ is the most expensive in the world for weather data and has the most restrictions to access data we have all collectively tax funded. So for now the best way for you to do this is go to NIWA.co.nz and access (and sign up to) our collective historical data via "CliFlo". Hopefully no change for what you're doing but NIWA places a lot of limits on "the people's data" - hence the review. If any issues with costs or accessibility please contact Minister Megan Woods (Minister that oversees NIWA and is currently reviewing their restrictive data measures so anything extra she hears will be helpful at freeing this all up for the good of all NZers).

Kind regards and all the best,
Philip Duncan

Awesome stuff.. Thank you

Awesome stuff.. Thank you very much. -Suzanna

Weather station locations

Hi, just curious- is there a map with an accurate ish location listing of the weather stations listed in "current conditions" like IPukekoh12 is where as opposed to IPukekohe11 and IBayofpl89. All are quite different and I can get any of them while in the same area (pukekohe hill) Thanks, William.

Hi there, we are soon

Hi there, we are soon upgrading all personal and public weather stations but because the NZ Government taxes us all collectively twice to gather current observations but then is the only country in the western world to not share that data back, it means we have to personally invest in improving things. We are currently doing that and looking for help in the private sector due to this Government again stalling on any action since the completion of the independent MBIE review a year and half ago which said NZ is at the extreme end (costwise) to access data we all help fund.

We hope to have clearer locations and the ability to select other location observations and current conditions later this year.

Cheers

Frost

I want to protect frost tender plants in my garden. How can I get an accurate frost prediction from your forecast?

Hi there Depends where you

Hi there

Depends where you live. There are frost forecasting services out there but they are usually the domain of large scale growers and will cost. Any service with pin point accuracy may cost when it comes down to it. You can use the search function on our home page, type in your location and it'll give you an idea of what temperatures may do. Or use the maps function here: http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/temperature

Flick through the various times and zoom in etc into your location, that might help. While those maps are good sometimes overnight lows can spread towards coastal areas a bit more then you may expect, the maps can smooth temps out a bit sometimes. There are various factors involved in that.

Anyway, hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Haast pass

does the Haast Pass generally get snowed out/in at this time of year?

Being the lowest of the

Being the lowest of the passes over the Southern Alps (564m) the chances are less but provided its cold enough and there is plenty of moisture then it could get snowed in.

Dunedin brrrr

Hey WW Team It's cold as...already 3 degrees up on the hill (Stuart St). Looks like its snugging in & hunkering down with several hot cuppas is the order of the night. Hang in there, Dunners!!! PS: Bring in the dogs & cats tonight. They feel the cold like you do. :) D & The Cat

Hi there wondering if there

Hi there wondering if there will be any big thunderstorms or gale winds today and tomorrow in Auckland?

Hi there No, big

Hi there

No, big thunderstorms are not looking very likely at this stage although there could be a rumble or two. Gales not all that likely either however there is a chance winds may gust to gale at times tomorrow afternoon, otherwise all good

No snow

I am sure that if there's going to be snow, you'll hear it here first everybody!

no snow in christchurch

Hi just wondering why thers no snow in christchurch after 2012.. thanks.

Hasn't been cold enough.

Hasn't been cold enough. Weather patterns haven't suited it and so forth.

Dunedin

Hi, am I right in thinking that there will be no snow in Dunedin because the air flow is more westerly than from the south? Regards, David

Tuesday morning has the best

Tuesday morning has the best chance, the temperatures just don't look cold enough for sea level snow right at the moment however.
