Weather for 17 November 2018

What will the weather be like for an Open Air Event, Christmas in the Park in Foxton, 17 Nov 2018. 5pm - 9pm.

Hi there, no reliable

Hi there, no reliable forecaster can give you an answer that far out sorry - try asking us a week or so out :)

Too early to tell?

Hi Guys, is it too early to tell what this Saturday will be doing in Auckland?

Hi there, at this stage

Hi there, at this stage Saturday starts of fairly calm but Nor'West winds will become gusty later. There may be a late shower, otherwise a dry day at this stage. Showers increase overnight and early Sunday as a cold front moves in (and weakens as it moves in).

Weather 2-9 November queenstown

What will the weather be like? Coming for a holiday and hoping it will be dry? Thanks

Hi thereFor anything very

Hi there

For anything very detailed you are best to look up our forecasts for Queenstown here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Queenstown

Other then that it's looking like you will probably get alternating days of dry and wet, then towards then end of your holiday from the 7th or perhaps 8th a large high may keep skies settled for the last few days.

Have a good time! :)

Titirangi Markets - Sunday 8am - 2pm

Hi there, Just wondering if your advice to the marathon runners below for Sunday still holds true, as things still seem to changing... We are at the Titirangi Market from around 8am on Sunday morning. Are we going to need our waterproof gazebo?

Hi there, The best way to

Hi there,

The best way to work it out is to keep an eye on our Rain Maps/Forecast Rain Radar to show the rain band moving in to the Auckland area, plus the Hourly % of rain in our Auckland or Titirangi forecasts. Looks likely it will be mainly dry for you at this stage but keep an eye on those two key areas this evening/early tomorrow in case the incoming rain speeds up a little. (only has to arrive a couple hours early to affect you).

Cheers - all the best!

WW

Thanks so much - excellent

Thanks so much - excellent answer. We will certainly be keeping an eye on the rain radar.

Second week of November

Hi there, is it too early to predict what the weather will be doing in Auckland second week of November? Thank you!

Hi there, yes just slightly

Hi there, yes just slightly outside how far we can see with any real accuracy. At this early stage some of the longest range modelling we use (from America) shows a large high around Auckland during that week but it looks fast moving so can't be locked in . We'll have a better idea by early next week.

Cheers :)
WW

Hows it looking?

Thanks for your great answer. So, can we expect a sunny and warm mid-November? :)

The second week of November

The second week of November looks to kick off mostly dry and fairly calm thanks to a large high - so yes, at this stage :)

Saturday in Auckland

Hi there, How are we looking for this saturday in West Auckland? Playing a cricket game around midday. What can we expect team? Love your work.

Hey there, thanks for the

Hey there, thanks for the question and kind feedbacl! :) Saturday is proving to be a tricky day to lock in for Auckland but it does appear rain is more likely later in the day. There might be a couple of showers morning/afternoon, but for now any patchy rain or showers look likey late afteroon or evening. Keen an eye on our hourly % of rain on Saturday too - it should be a helpful guide along with the rain maps we also provide.

All the best!

Auckland Marathon - Sunday :)

Hey there, a few thousand of us are running various distances in the Auckland Marathon this weekend.. weather could play a part in how easy this is.. I see already the forecast has slightly improved with a sun peaking out on your picture now.. not just rain clouds. What are you thinking so far?

Hi there, thanks for your

Hi there, thanks for your question! At this stage Saturday sees a chance of heavy downpours in the Auckland region but by Sunday most of that risk appears to be well east of Auckland, which SHOULD make for a dry day with a SW change. It may be a little cloudy at first and we can't rule out a shower, but for now Sunday looks to be the better of both days. Keep an eye on our forecasts and Rain Maps too as the set up this weekend makes it a little hard to lock in.

Cheers - and all the best for the Marathon!!

Sat 27/10

Hi Guys, I see this Sat looks like a bit of rain in auckland. How likely is that to change given the type of wind/direction etc.

Hi there, Saturday is quite

Hi there, Saturday is quite hard to lock in due to an area of convergence - meaning big downpours could form over the city and set in, turning to rain for a time. Or - it may form further out to sea or over surrounding regions. We'll be in a better place to lock in by late Wednesday/Thursday but at this stage Saturday has a moderate to high chance of some wet weather, drying out by the end of the day. Winds look light and that's the reason why this isn't a straight forward clean set up.

Cheers
WW

Thanks heaps guys!

Thanks heaps guys!

Hey WW. It looks like the

Hey WW. It looks like the cold weather is returning to Dunedin after a fabulous weekend. Will the cold temps be the go for the rest of spring? I trust your weather forcasts more so than those 'other guys'. Cheers D

Hi D, thanks for your message

Hi D, thanks for your message and question :) Yes definitely a colder snap coming this week for Dunedin and will take a few days to recover. For the most part, most regions in NZ look to have a warmer than average rest of October but coastal Otago is definitely more exposed to some cooler southerlies and SW flows over the next couple of weeks. Here's our recent story about the warmer weather https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/brief-hiccup-warmer-average-weather-week-otherwise-its-here-rest-october 

So make the most of today and tomorrow as the next several days ahead look cooler for Dunedin but we expect milder weather to bounce back late Oct/early Nov.

Cheers
WW

Hey thank you heaps, guys.

Hey thank you heaps, guys. Keep up the great work! D

Temperature Now really off the mark

I’ve noticed that recently your Now temperatures for Christchurch are significantly higher than I would estimate, and 2 other weather sites for Christchurch. By 6 to 8 degrees! I hope you are aware of the issue and will be addressing it soon. I’m about to remove your app because your Now temps being posted are too off the mark.

Hi there. Unfortunately the

Hi there. Unfortunately the NZ Govt blocks open commercial access to data (in other words the weather observations we all collectively tax fund WW cannot display even for non commercial reasons). The NOW temps we have are local weather stations from private operators and some data is truly flawed and we have begun actively blocking those stations from appearing. The good news is that we have a couple of very big new changes coming in 2019 to our NOW observations. We'll not only display more data than anyone else but it will all be verifed to being accurate or very near accurate and will completely stop these false readings. We will also give the option for you to select the nearest weather observation you feel is most accurate to your local micro-climate. So we accept the problems - but are definitely working to fix in a bigger and better way in 2019.

Kind regards

WW

Dry already

In Pukekohe we live on rainwater and our tanks are close to empty which is unprecedented for this time of year. Looking at the metservice figures we’ve only had around 40 mm in the past month. What do the long term forecasts for rain look like this summer?

Hi there, yes we feel your

Hi there, yes we feel your pain with this much warmer and drier than average pattern setting in. The good news is that NZ and Australia aren't stuck in any global weather pattern. In Aussie they have major droughts in SA and NSW but recently they've had more than a months rainfall in just a matter of days in some of those states. NZ may get some of this rain this weekend. It's a bit hit and miss for Pukekohe but there are chances of good solid downpours this weekend in the Upper North Island. Keep an eye on our Rain Maps to get a better picture. As for long term - summer can't be locked in but the fact there's no major El Nino or La Nina going on means NZ will be in a 'chaotic local pattern' which means we can truly have anything thrown at us... a few highs could give several weeks of dry, but equally we could get a pattern of rain makers moving in too. Generally speaking NZ is trending dry than average for the next week or two overall nationally but definitely rain makers in the mix for the first time in a while.

Cheers

Good morning Lyn, thanks for

Good morning Lyn, thanks for your question. Unfortunately it's a little too far out for us to know yet with any certainty. We won't be able to really lock anything in until the start of November (for about 10 to 14 days out). Ask us again around then :)
Cheers

Megan Woods

Took some time to read the PWC review regarding M.S. and Niwa last week and also sent The Hon Megan Woods an email regarding their bully boy tactics. I'm just hoping you were able to have a constructive meeting with the minister and if you feel that changes will be forthcoming in regard to accessibility of data? The product you guys are able to provide consistently with the constraints you're facing speaks volumes . Keep fighting the good fight and thanks for all your hard work. Dave Waiheke

Hi Dave, great to see you

Hi Dave, great to see you writing to the Minister. Megan Woods needs to hear from as many people as possible about the anti-competitive and bullying behaviours well documented in these two Government Agencies. Our meeting was positive but the Commerce Commission is refusing to help us currently, despite the Minister assuring us the ComCom was our next step following our meeting with her recentlly. We have held off on explaining it all to the public as we are waiting on a formal letter from the Minister's Office, which we hope to get this month. We've told her we feel the system is corrupted and broken - we repeated that again to Megan Woods Office on Friday after the ComCom were flat footed on what their responsibilities will be moving forward. Frustrating and painful. 

Cheers

Weekend Weather

Hello gents, A few days out I know, but anything nasty lurking/possible for Saturday in Auckland? Hoping for some nice or even cloudy weather.

Hi thereVery latest updates

Hi there

Very latest updates show areas of cloud and occasional sun, may be a brief shower or two about otherwise mainly dry. Winds light from the north, a high in the late teens, possibly early twenties if your lucky.

Cheers, Aaron

Saturday morning Auckland

Hi What's the weather looking like for 9am Saturday morning in Beachlands as have some sports coaching? Looks like rain may clear by then? Thanks D

Hi there, tomorrow is a

Hi there, tomorrow is a classic 50/50 forecast with rain in the area but it is clearing away...so timing is EVERYthing! It does look as though it will break up in the morning but whether it happens by 9am in Beachlands isn't 100% known yet. Either way, it doesn't look likely to linger all day but there is a moderate to high chance of early rain or showers. We'll be fine tuning our Auckland update a few times across today, for Saturday. :)

Cheers

This saturday in auckland

Hey Team, Whats the weather going to look like this saturday in auckland? Hoping to play a bit of cricket in the afternoon.

Hey there, normally a SE wind

Hey there, normally a SE wind does make for a dry day in Auckland but a nearly by offshore trough may encourage rain or showers to linger longer. It's a bit 50/50 but at the moment the chances are weighted towards the day become drier rather than the day becoming wetter as it goes on...so good luck! We'll be fine tuning that Saturday forecast over the next day or so as we try to lock in the timing.

Cheers!

Tauranga South weather

PS to my earlier query - where is Pacific coastal Residential BayofPL89?

Hi Ken,The observations

Hi Ken,
The observations network we display is actually operated by WeatherUnderground and the site has some data being switched off now. On top of that issue, NZ is the only country in the western world to give their forecaster (MetService) the power to commercially block people access to the data they helped fund. So we can't display live tax funded weather observations, instead we switch to the private network (which is actually much more detailed and granular, but it also has glitches, like the one currently affecting you). We are working on a major overhaul of the entire current observations network next year, but in the meantime we'll take a closer look at this issue in your area. As for the weather station above, we can look into it also but please note we do not run this network, or have access to the weather stations - we simply display them.

Cheers
Phil D

Observations re Tauranga

Thanks for your detailed and informative reply. Why does it not surprise me that once again a tax funded govt department can dictate terms. Good luck ... I will keep your site downloaded as my weather guide.

Thank you very much - we are

Thank you very much - we are actually meeting with Minister Megan Woods next week about it, following an independent review by MBIE which pointed out quite clearly how out of the norm the NZ set up is. Thanks for your support, definitely have big positive improvements on the way in the next 12 months to both our website and app.
Cheers
