tommorow

you guys changed the forecast from thunder to just showers the other day. while metservice in their forecast for tommorow says periods of rain with possible thunderstorms? will there be thunder tommorow or no? just asking. had a couple of downpours here in east auckland already. waiting for some thunder. thanks

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your questions but we can't keep non stop replying to questions about our daily forecasts sorry - what we have published is our current best thinking and the hourly data is updated every 15 minutes on top of that. Weather is changeable - it always will be, so the forecasts show the current best thinking. Use MetService's severe thunderstorm outlook (not their Auckland forecast but their national thunderstorm outlook and warnings map) as well to help you make sense of it all.

Cheers,

WW Team

P.s

i also took a look at rural weather . nz and that has a thudnerstorm icon for tommorow. again sorry for giving you guys too much

sorry about that

sorry about that. i did see the thunderstorm outlook and we under moderate risk again tommorow. but sorry about the annoymous questions wont happen again. i always seem to rely on you guys since weatherwatch i reakon is the best forecasters ever. sorry if i been giving you too much.

It's ok, no worries at all,

It's ok, no worries at all, glad you're finding us reliable :) Thanks heaps for the support.
Cheers

your welcome

your welcome. and i am certainly hearing thunder :)

what risk will sundays storms be

do you think for auckland there may eb a low risk or moderate risk or high risk. just wanted to know. cause i have a party on sunday and we were gonna have it outdoor but we gonna have to shorten it now due to the threat of lightning.

Keep an eye on our detailed

Keep an eye on our detailed forecasts and MetService thunderstorm outlooks and plan accordingly.

Ok thanks

thank you.

mondays forecast

i see that mondays forecast has changed to ocassional showers. but still has a thunderstorm icon whys that?

That's a mistake, thanks for

That's a mistake, thanks for letting us know! :)

WW

tornado

will the possible thunderstorms in the weekend for auckland have tornadoes? i hope not.

A small spinup is possible

A small spinup is possible but the likelyhood of anything affecting you even if one does drop for a brief moment is very very small. Basically I wouldn't worry about it, more chance of getting in a crash somewhere driving on the road and we don't worry about that so much. Should be all good.

Cheers
Ww

thanks

thanks if any does form i hope they form as waterspouts out at sea. so it can be safe to watch them and not overland. i already experieced a tornado (may 2011) which hit albany. and do not wanna experience one again

Queenstown half marathon

Hi there, we are looking forward to running the Queenstown half marathon next Friday. The weather doesn’t look great at this stage, any further insights? Thanks v much. Renee

Hi there Renee. The good news

Hi there Renee. The good news is that in spring the timing of rain bands can be tricky within 24 hours let alone 7 or 8 days out, so there's a chance the rain won't fall duign the time of the half marathon. The bad news is that, currently, the forecast and data suggest heavy rain is very likely on the West Coast and that will 'spillover' into Queenstown. It's all about timing of that front - it may zip through early then clear and be dry, or it may linger and bring some rain - so keep an eye on the chance of rain (%) in our 10 day Queenstown forecast.

All the best!

Cheers
Phil 

Thanks phil

Fingers crossed

i suspect spooks and sparks at the trust

i suspect spooks and sparks at the trust stadium will have to be cancelled due to the wet and thundery weather?

Hi there, we don't know what

Hi there, we don't know what their criteria is for it to be called off. Saturday afternoon is a bit tricky to lock in, more than likely it will be decided on the day. Keep an eye on our detailed forecasts plus hourly percentage/chance of rain for Henderson.

Cheers
WW

Severe thunderstorms

Hi there any severe thunderstorms for auckland this weekend

Hi there, we do have some

Hi there, we do have some ingredients for thunderstorms this weekend, the risk increases on Sunday. As for severe, at this stage probably not - but worth keeping an eye on MetService's thunderstorm outlook too as the weather will be unstable in many regions over the coming days.

Cheers

Saturday 9/11

Hi team, We have an important game of cricket this Saturday. I see the forecast is changing and the precipitation % is dropping. Is there a chance of having a dry period on Saturday in Auckland? Cheers Allen

Hey Allen, thanks for the

Hey Allen, thanks for the question. Yes set ups like this one (the tropical airflow) can be quite tricky to be too precise with. Generally we'd expect some drizzly showers about, maybe a heavier shower or two, but it is looking increasingly drier for Saturday daytime. Take a look at Phil's weather video today plus the hourly % of rain in our forecasts and hopefully it will work out to a decent dry spell on Saturday for you - it will likely move around a bit more chance-of-rain-wise. We'll have more info in our next weather video out around 11am Friday and by Friday afternoon the forecast should be more fine tuned.

Cheers and all the best!

Weather

Please can someone tell me ? If Auckland has ever been over the Temperature of 30degress please I,m curious why ? I have never known Auckland to get that high and I have been here all my life 67yrs.I do no that it has been very close in the past.,but just not enough. Thankyou for your valuable time thanks. We have a debate going on about this M McVeigh.

Hi here Here's an older

Hi here

Here's an older article on WW from 2009, it has discussions on the hottest temperatures ever recorded around Auckland. Also have a read of the comments, there is some usefull information in there also:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/auckland-officially-reaches-32fee...

It can depend where you are taking the readings around Auckland as to the hottest temperature as there will be variations across the region regarding highs. That 2009 year (Feb 12th) has highs of 30.5 up to 34.4. There could even be a few areas where temperatures got a degree or two higher than that unofficially.

Cheers

Sunday afternoon Muriwai

Hi, is there much point me holding out hope for a massive change in the rain forecast for Sunday afternoon (Nov10)?? I'm meant to me taking a couple of 7 year olds horse riding at Muriwai beach and whilst I believe the weather out there can be quite different from central Auckland it's looking like it's going to be very wet. Thanks so much for this service!!

Hi there Sunday will

Hi there

Sunday will certainly be a mixed bag for Auckland, there may well be a few dry areas in the mix and that will be the case for a lot of areas till afternoon when areas of showers / rain pick up in intensity again. But even then from afternoon the areas of rain or showers will likely have some dry areas still. So not straight forward. I would expect rain more then dry but take any dry areas as a bonus.

Whatever your decision hope you guys have a great day, and thanks! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Wedding whangamata

Hi there We are in Australia. We have a beach wedding Friday 22 Nov (afternoon) at whangamata. I have seen two completely different long range forcasts. One partly cloudy, the other rain. Are you to provide any indication of what we might expect? Best wishes Patrea Andersen

G'day thereYou would see two

G'day there

You would see two completely different forecasts as anything that far out won't be very reliable. Someone just below asked a question for Auckland and what the weather will be on Nov 23rd, I replied with the following:

"Not sure at this point sorry, it's too far away.

About 7 to 10 days out we might start to have an idea, then 4 to 5 days out is when we can start locking down what will happen.

Come back and ask within those time frames if you can otherwise hope your event goes well! :)

Cheers
Aaron"

So if you could come back and ask a bit closer to the time I could help you out more. Hope the wedding goes well either way :)

Cheers
Aaron

auckland rain

are we gonna get a lot of rain from the storms this week end or are we gonna get a little bit just want to know as this hehatwave has dried things up and my garden needs a good watering. looking foward for thunder and lightning if it does happen. thanks. and by the way you guys are better than metservice honestly.

It's looking a bit messy, I

It's looking a bit messy, I couldn't say with confidence you will or won't get plenty of rain. With the direction this weather is coming in from somewhere like the Bay Of Plenty looks a little more certain of higher amounts of rain.

You should get some rain though, may not be a drought breaker but welcome none the less.

WW

will there be thunder

will there still be thunder? just wondering.

Yes there should be some

Yes there should be some thunder about, but thunderstorms in nature aren't widepsread, often they are a bit isolated so not everyone gets them. If you like them then hopefully you do! The risk is there.

Cheers
Aaron

thanks

thanks alot. and i see thunder is also forecasted on monday too. I appreciate this site cause it is really useful . especially when i have something special on.

Outdoor charity event Nov 23

Hi there, we have a big outdoor, night time half marathon on Nov 23 in Auckland and my organising team will do daily sun dances if needed to bring dry, calm weather. Is it too early to see what’s likely to be? Thx, Andrew

Hi Andrew Yeah not sure at

Hi Andrew

Yeah not sure at this point sorry, it's too far away.

About 7 to 10 days out we might start to have an idea, then 4 to 5 days out is when we can start locking down what will happen.

Come back and ask within those time frames if you can otherwise hope your event goes well! :)

Cheers
Aaron

thunder

hi Im that guy who asked if we would get thunder in auckland again this year from a week or two ago. I see that you have it in the forecats for sunday and monday. I know its a risk. but i hope there may be a storm.

Hopefully for you! Yes there

Hopefully for you! Yes there may be a chance coming up. We'll have to wait and see.

Cheers
Aaron

thanks

thanks alot i will have to wait and see. if theres none then i will declare tonigghts fireworks as "thunder" and "lightning" lol. best forecasts ever

Hi there, just looking at

Hi there, just looking at your comments about it being dry. We average around 2000ml annually, to date we are sitting around 1200ml. With November generally being our driest month. (West of Taupo, Pureora Forest).

Temperatures in Auckland

Why are the Auckland Temperature so lowly recorded? North shore was sitting on about 27 degrees at 4pm. I know this cause I have a calibrated temp recorder, also my car is very accurate once it gets moving and it said the same. No way on the north shore it was this cool

I'm on the North Shore and at

I'm on the North Shore and at 3pm yesterday it was 23 in Takapuna, drove across to Birkenhead and it was 26. So you can see having one temperature to represent all of Auckland, let alone the North Shore, is not going to be accurate in one spot, but not in another.

There will be variations

There will be variations across the Auckland region as with any region, it gets a bit hard to forecast for every outcome within a region. Our forecast temps are for the Auckland CBD which are working out well. That's not to say improvements couldn't be made to how we go about our forecasts so thanks for the note.

Enjoy the warm weather! :)

Forecast high today in

Forecast high today in Auckland was 22, yet it got to 26, similar happened yesterday, with it being 3-4 degrees above forecast. Is it expected to be 22 degrees tomorrow in Auckland, or 3-4 degrees above that? (regardless, you guys do a great job, keep up the good work!)

Just like rain in Auckland it

Just like rain in Auckland it can be pouring out west, but be dry out east. So with temperatures it's the same - a cool sea breeze may mean 22 in the CBD, but it'll be 4 degrees warmer in another part. One temperature for all of Auckland cannot cover the huge land area the city covers so you get an average instead.

There will be variations

There will be variations across the Auckland region as with any region, it gets a bit hard to forecast for every outcome within a region. Our forecast temps are for the Auckland CBD which are working out well. That's not to say improvements couldn't be made to how we go about our forecasts so thanks for the note.

Enjoy the warm weather! :)

Will there be more periods of warmth this month

Will be there be another period of warm weather for nz .

Eventually yes there will be,

Eventually yes there will be, but not in the week ahead like we had over the weekend / on Monday.

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there, with Summer now

Hi there, with Summer now less than a month away, when do we pass the 'peak spring' point?

We have passed it already, it

We have passed it already, it was in October :) 

Still not summer yet but....lots more hints in the air that it's just aorund the corner.

Cheers
