Central Plateau Snow

Hi there, will it snow at Whakapapa village this weekend? If so, how much and will it still be on the ground on Monday? Will the central plateau roads be affected by snow?

Hi there, we are working on

Hi there, we are working on displaying a new Snow and Ski Page but for now we do think they will get snow in the village but it's borderline with National Park and Ohakune looking a little too warm for snow to settle, although in Wairouru and the Desert Road it's a snow/rain mix - potentially SH1 the Desert Road may be impacted by snow for a time - but shouldn't be a major snow dump there. For Whakapapa Village it's higher elevation so should get snow.

The roads look to be open on Monday but the snow level is a little tricker to lock in specifically. Check Ruapehu webcams on Sunday - by then the snow will have eased and you'll have a clear view of where it has settled. It warms up by over 5 degrees more on Monday so snow will melt fast at the lower levels.

Cheers

thunder

why am i seeing the word thunder alot. now.

Hi there, you're seeing it

Hi there, you're seeing it pop up a lot at the moment due to an incoming surge of polar air mixing with the much warmer than normal conditions around the country. Warm air and cold air colliding often makes thunderstorms so we expect a few over the next few days (mostly western NZ) and possibly again next week when we get a couple more big lows with warm and cold air mixing.

Cheers :)

Snow

Hi there, I am just checking back to see if the forecast for snow levels/amounts on the lindis pass for the 1st is more locked in yet. Thanks, Ben

G'day there Looks to be 1 to

G'day there

Looks to be 1 to 3cm possible on Lindis Pass for the 1st. An outside chance of 3 to 5cm but due to snow melt and snow showers likely being broken not much will accumulate if much at all. It's more just a skiff / dusting of snow for Lindis Pass. So yes some perhaps but not alot.

Safe travels!

Cheers
Aaron

Awesome thanks very much for

Dunedin weather queens birthday weekend

Hi, I am flying to Dunedin for the long weekend and am wondering what sort of weather I should prepare for. I am also planning to do some outdoor activities and would like to know which are the best days for that. Thanks.

Hi there, Saturday looks

Hi there, Saturday looks wintry with strong winds and some rain (snow on the ranges too). Sunday dries out but will still be a little windy and cool. Monday will be cloudier with perhaps some patchy rain developing. Keep an eye on our 10 day forecast for Dunedin which includes HOURLY forecasts for all 10 days, helping you work out % of rain and wind speeds/direction.

Have a great long weekend,
Cheers

thunderstorm

what time on tuesday will auckland get the thunderstorms? will there be tornadoes possible just wanted to know. i also see that we have lots of rain as winter is arriving

Hi there As below the best I

Hi there

As below the best I can say is early to mid afternoon at this stage.

Perhaps the low risk of a tornado, there is plenty of shear in the atmosphere but there is a chance the highest amount of instability may slip away to the east.

Thunder storms

Hi any thunder storms over west Auckland on Tuesday thank you

Hi there Early to mid

Hi there

Early to mid afternoon yes there does appear to be a risk as northerlies change northwest.

Cloud status on Thursday May 30th

Hi There. I have a 9 AM domestic flight from Christchurch to Auckland and then an international flight from Auckland to San Francisco. Because of low clouds on Saturday (May 25th) morning, all the morning flights from Christchurch are cancelled. I would like to find out the fog status on Thursday to see if it going to be similar to how it was on Saturday? Any chance you could help me if the weather will be okay for flights to take off on Thursday early morning? Please advise.

Fog isn't looking very likely

Fog isn't looking very likely then, you should be fine :)

CHCH fog

When will the fog disappear today 25/05/2019?

Good morning, it is slowly

Good morning, it is slowly lifting now and should be clear from all places in Chch by 1pm.

Kind regards

Weather on Saturday the 1st

Hi there, I am planning on driving from Christchurch to wanaka through the lindis pass on the 1st and I was wondering if there's likely to be snow around on the mountain roads. Thanks in advance! Ben

Hi there It's possible

Hi there

It's possible perhaps, there does appear to be a few cold'ish type outbreak situations coming up but this far out I can't say anything with too much certainty being a week away. At this stage they are looking quite southwesterly anyway meaning not much may fall on the lindis when these cold changes move through.

Will be able to say more about 4 days out.

Cheers

Current Hamilton Temperature

Hi, I have noticed that the Hamilton current temperature (IFRANKTO3) has been showing no temperature for a few days now. Keep up the good work. Thanks

Thanks very much for letting

Thanks very much for letting us know. We may remove it if it continues to stay down. Will give it the weekend to come right but if no changes by Monday please let us know and we'll switch you to another nearby station until this one is sorted.

Kind regards and thanks for the feedback :)

Overnight forecasted temperature

On occasions the actual overnight temperature is lower than your forecasted one. Are there any local weather conditions which causes this? I have horses to cover and it would be helpful, and a better nights sleep for me, if I could look at some indicators which suggest that the temperature would be lower than forecasted. Thanks.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the message and question. NZ's terrain means that most regions have overnight lows that vary by SEVERAL degrees. Most main cities have this too, from suburb to suburb. There is no one single temperature for overnight lows but we try our best to be as local as possible. In saying that, you may find a very nearby area may have better overnights for you. For example, in Auckland on a cold night we actually look at Hamilton's overnight lows to work out how cold some of Auckland's inland, rural, areas will be. Where are you based? There may be a forecast just down the road which may have better overnight lows for you to double check. Let us know.
Cheers
Phil D

Overnight forecasted temperature

Thanks for you prompt reply. I am in Warkworth. If there is somewhere else to double check that would be great. Thanks again.

thunderstorm

hey will there be thunderstorm next week. cause your forecast next friday says scattered thunderstorms.

Good morning, next week our

Good morning, next week our weather pattern is dominated by large lows (the opposite of this week which is dominated by high pressure). There should be a surge of colder air which triggers thunderstorms around NZ later next week. While we can generally see a risk next week (in the forecasts) it doesn't mean on the day that a thunderstorm will form over you - it's just suggesting later next week we have a higher risk of them in the country. We'll be fine tuning that forecast much more by this weekend and of course through next week.

Cheers

Weather in Auckland

Hi there

Looks like cloudy areas and occasional sunny spells, may even be a light shower or two otherwise the day is looking quite dry overall. Light winds from the west or southwest. Cloud breaks away later in the day.

Hope that helps :)

thunderstorm

Ur claim met service has worse technology then u

So I was reading a comment u put about how met service and you have different tech and how urs is the best then explain how the news channels use met service and not ur company or results if u have the best then shouldn't they be using ur results I to think ur full of bs

There's always a Muppet around.

You can only teach children that want to be taught.

Hello again..just looking at the opposition rain radar..most of this rain is looking to go out to sea.or is it turn into a real southerly..?.comments..?

Late afternoon / early

Late afternoon / early evening will be the best time for showers then it eases away. Although we are seeing a few showers coming in at the moment, but that aforementioned time is the precipice of today's event.

Why is your weather forcast so different from met service?

why is yr weather for cast so different from met service??? I love to believe yr for cast for next Monday Tuesday and Wednesday because I have visitors but I dont trust it

Hi there, like restaurants we

Hi there, like restaurants we all have the same ingredients but product different menus. We use the computing power of IBM's super computer (the most powerful weather computer in New Zealand) and it self learns from various events. MetService do not have this technlogy. At this stage Monday and Wednesday look a little showery - perhaps a bit similar to today but with lighter winds. The showers may be enough to make us shift to a sun/shower icon but for now it's not looking overly wet. High pressure look dominant next week. MetService have gone very wet with showers, we've gone drier - i think it will be somewhere in the middle with Mon to Weds more dry than wet, but in saying that still a bit showery at times with sunny spells and West to SW winds. Look at our rain maps for more details too - you can see why this forecast is shaping up that way. All the best with the visitors!

Weather station data

Hi guys. The weather station ID: IBAYOFPL89 Temperature data is incorrect. It's saying that it's 23 deg. when it's 18 deg. .It's being giving higher temperature readings for a while now. Cheers Deano

Hey Deano, we've fixed this

Hey Deano, we've fixed this now. Let us know if it's working better for you :)

Weather station data

Hi Phil. My station came up, then I refreshed the page it went back to station ITAURANG51. When you go into forecasts and enter Tauranga South it comes up with ITAURANG51, when it should come up with ITAURANG20. I think you mentioned in a previous thread that you would have it sorted out later in the year?. Cheers Deano :)

Weather station data

Hi Phil. Perfect, as my station now comes up. Thanks for fixing that and your fast response. Cheers Deano.

Hi team, The weather station

Hi team, The weather station at Wingatui Mosgiel racecourse has not been functioning for the past week. It is registering as negative with no temperature.

Hey there, thanks very much

Hey there, thanks very much for letting us know. Can you see what the Station ID is for that particular station? (in the NOW/Current section).  If so we can then easily remove it - or replace it with another nearby station until this one is working again.

Kind regards and cheers for the update,
WW

Weather station

Hi I have checked the number for the wingatui station and it is 1OTAWING2 Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Cheers, Jenny

Hi Jenny, absolutely no

Hi Jenny, absolutely no problem at all :) We've removed this weather station for now and have replaced with (hopefully) a more accurate one. It may take a couple of hours to switch over. Let us know if any further issues. The network isn't perfect but it is the largest one in the country so faults are to be expected here and there, but we're gradually eleminating the problematic ones now! 

Kind regards,

Phil D
