wind :(

why, oh why, has there been so much westerly/SW wind over the last few months (especially in Auckland/Waiheke)?

Wind

Cause is spring....same every year for the past 39 years of my life anyway.

Next week

Hi Boys
What are your thoughts on some rain about mid next week? Maps are indicating some but most of it lately has not reached the top half of Nth Is. It sure is getting dry in the Waikato

Cheers
Dave

I see that system mid next

I see that system mid next week Dave, it is a fair way out so won't put any confirmation on it just yet but something to keep an eye on. When it comes down to probabilities I'd say it is looking partly positive for that system to come to fruition as there hasn't been much as you say where you are in a while.

A front early next week should deliver some rain, at this stage not looking like plenty of rain but some atleast.

The distubance moving over later tomorrow and clearing away Thursday morning isn't looking to be too much in the way of rain so just a litlte bit of dampness.

Northland seems to be ok with the stationary front they had hanging over them a week back, it's you guys in the middle that need it now indeed.

Cheers
Aaron

Sundays wind

Hi Phil & co, I see you have windy westerlies for Sunday - do you think they will be gale force or anything horrible like that?

Not gale force

But they will be breezy.  Current indications are that winds will be around 10-20 km/h 

To the person who asked if

To the person who asked if slipping back into a spring weather pattern means colder weather (apologies, we couldn't publish your question due to a tech failure - sorry about that!).  The answer is: depends on where you live!  For Auckland it means more cloud and wind - so can mean cooler days but warmer nights. 

For eastern NZ it means much hotter days but a higher risk of colder southerly changes.

Summer is still coming - just a brief step back for some parts of NZ in order to take 2 or 3 steps forward!

Cheers

Phil

rain

Hi guys,
any idea when some decent rain will be around,getting pretty dry on the farm in south auckland,
cheers keep up the good work

We're sliding back into a

We're sliding back into a more typical spring pattern for the next couple of weeks - which means showers will be more likely than rain setting in - a chance of something Thursday and again early next week.

Fingers crossed!

Cheers

average of a 1c rise per

average of a 1c rise per month since winter,maybe 2 weeks of summer in march.

Geez, so negative!

Geez, so negative!

Cold!

Back into the teens just before Summer! :O

Tomorrrow

Is tomorrows weather suitable for a day at the beach?

West coast beaches will have

West coast beaches will have winds a little breezy from the southwest but it will still be a good day. East coast beaches will be a bit calmer with a chance for less cloud. Still it will be mostly sunny for most.

Either way looks like it will be a good day tomorrow at the beach anywhere!

Cheers

What a terrible weatherwise

What a terrible weatherwise week coming up,SW all to the max.

Dec 1 BBQ

PLanning a BBQ on Sat Dec 1. Is rain likely?
Cheers

It will get blown away to

It will get blown away to South America lol

Not really, however....

We are expecting to be in a bit of a transition period Friday and Saturday next week.  So, whilst the current forecast is dry, it may not stay that way.

Having said that though, I've got some pretty good confidence in the forecast.  I would give you about 70% chance of having a dry barbie.

Summer

Hey WW,

Is it too early to know how the start of Summer will be? I was looking at the maps and it looks like its going to be very windy rainy and cold for Auckland? :(

Cheers.

It may well be looking at the

It may well be looking at the maps as you say, still.......check back early next week for perhaps an improved outlook on the situation :)

Tasman high = southwesterlies

Tasman high = southwesterlies and showers.

FIVE DAYS IN A ROW FOR AUCKLAND?

WOW!!!!!! Is this possible? A chance of catching a glimpse of the golden orb for five consecutive days (let alone five minutes)?

cirrus displays

Been some wonderful cirrus displays SE of New Lynn earlier this morning.

Maybe the first cyclone?

Hi guys
Are we going to see the first cyclone forming around New Caledonia this week? The maps seem to suggest it, but looking to track east of NZ. May be good for the surfies though?

Cheers
Dave

We're watching it - certainly

We're watching it - certainly will be a nasty little low but looks like it could be short lived in the tropics.  We're tracking it very closely .  Too many conflicted models on it at the moment though.

Friday 23rd November Silverdale Auckland

Wedding in Silverdale this coming Friday. Hoping for a clear afternoon especially between 3-5pm. What are the chances?

At this stage it looks good

At this stage it looks good with just a 10% chance of rain between those times.  All the best

Cheers

Weather pattern change

Looks like the weather pattern is finally making a change with forecasted high pressure waxing and waning over the next week. Maybe Summer is going to start on time?

I was thinking the same as I

I was thinking the same as I looked at weather models this morning. Is more settled looking this week.

Sunday

HIya

Temperatures aren't expected to be terribly warm, but comfortable with highs around 20.  No rain is expected.

Cheers
WW 

sunday

Woohoo thanks

Rain on the 24th?

Hi there. Will it Rain on the 24th?? We have an outing planned for the whole of Saturday. Please say "No rain".

Look dry at this point

No rain is expected for Saturday.  Your outing looks good at this point.

Cheers
WW 

Thank you and Bless!! : )

Thank you and Bless!! : )

Extremely strong NW winds

extremely strong wind gusts from the NW in New Lynn. Surprised no warnings out.:)

Not sure why no warnings are up

Kind of a surprise to us too.  There are certainly some strong gusts about the North Island today.

WW 

Had enough of this

Had enough of this weather..bring on winter!

I'm a fan of winter too

Not overly thrilled with hot weather either, so I'm not looking forward to the warm up that is coming.  But you and I have a bit of wait.  It's not even summer yet.  :)

Cheers
Howard 

saturday night

Hi there

Looking at tomorrows weather, is it likely to be raining throughout the night? or more likely during the day?

Hi there Rain is more likely

Hi there

Rain is more likely to fall during the day tomorrow, in particular from midday through till evening. Rain will then ease off at some point in the evening. Through the night you can expect cloudy areas with brisk west to southwest winds. There will be dry periods but expect the odd shower at times also.

On Sunday morning showers will pick up again for a time.

Cheers
Aaron

Rain map

I think the latest model shows that the rain might hit Auckland a bit late. Please correct me if I am wrong :)

Rain

Yes it can tend to look that way and sometimes the rainbands can stall a little before approaching. We'll keep an eye on it :)

Cheers

WW

Saturday 17th

Hi guys,
We know there is rain coming to Auckland tomorrow (Saturday) but what do you think the chances are of it not arriving till after midday? Hopefully!!!
Thanks,
Gerry

Huge updraft

Huge updraft directly over Titirangi, beautiul cloud displays in the west.

Nice, gotta love big

Nice, gotta love big updrafts! Especially in the evening as the sun is going down.

Eclipse

Hi WeatherWatch.
I wonder whether you incorporated into your models the eclipse yesterday? Over most of the upper north island, the sun was 0 to 90% obscured for 2 hours. This must significantly decrease the heat energy into the atmosphere during the morning. Perhaps around 10% less heat for the day radiant upon the atmosphere. Did the weather react?
Thanks
Dave

Hi DavePersonally I'm not

Hi Dave

Personally I'm not sure at all really. There was nothing overally interesting about the weather yesterday. Although there were some heavy showers in parts of Southland and eastern Otago late afternoon, also inland Mid / South Canterbury.

What you are saying does sound correct perhaps although I'm no expect on the effects of an eclipse really. I have seen a few temperature graphs and it looks like the temp did drop a bit in many places while the eclipse took place then shot up again afterwards, beyond that I didn't notice many other affects. It did occur in the morning and I believe things would have recovered fairly quickly once it had passed.

At the time I must confess to being in bed also! I work late so sleep through the morning generally :D

If anyone else did notice certain things happening weather wise when the eclipse happened feel free to put a message up on here and let us know.

Cheers
Aaron

Queenstown

Hi, We are going to Queenstown tomorrow for a few days. The weather forecast for Queenstown is a little confusing.

Q'town

Hi there

Queenstown looks dry and mild tomorrow but Saturday looks rainy and Sunday should see skies clear with just a few showers possible. Enjoy your time away!

Thanks
