G'day there 7th of December

G'day there

7th of December is quite a we way away but currently it's looking like just a light westerly, so hopefully yes conditions will be good for you then.

You guys actually rock -

You guys actually rock - thanks for replying so fast. We pay for metservice but it's you who answers - and so quick. Thank you, I'm happy with that. Had visions of hurricane style winds :-) will keep checking obviously.

breezy winds for Auckland

I am tired of the cool south west wind which has been hanging around South Auckland for weeks and drops the temperature around 6 degrees below summer time is for shorts not longs but it feels a lot cooler When will we get 27 degrees in South Auckland every other year but wind chill seems around 19 or so I am ashamed for people to see my white legs we are nearly into summer but its still feels cool last year we had 27 degrees what is robbing us. finally I wish to thank you for your expertise for giving us amazing updates.

breezy winds for Auckland

Its like the Scottish tundra highlands,bleak and miserable.

Thanks for the nice comment!

Thanks for the nice comment! :)

Auckland will always / often have breezy southwesterly winds, much like Christchurch can get a fresh easterly to spoil a nice summers day.

Only thing is Christchurch has the Southern Alps to the west giving warm days when the wind comes from that direction.

Hopefully a nice still day coming your way soon :)

Cheers
Aaron

ha ha the weather forecasts

I used the "old metservice" site for my boating forecasts around auckland and was quite happy with that foremat. I have sent a complaint about the new layout. Can you carry on the old one Thank you, Warren Crook.

Cold nights

Hi there, why is it still so cold at night this late in the year in the Auckland region? last night metservice recorded 6.8 degrees, is that the average night temperature for late November and when can we expect to start having milder nights? I see on the forecast that milder nights are coming, but we haven't even seen the 13 degrees that has been forecast this past week yet. Thanks for all the great and hard work you guys are all doing and am very interested to hear more news about the seasonal forecast you talked about the other day!

Hi there, we had a bit of

Hi there, we had a bit of sou'west change this week which did pull in some colder air. Hard to notice it during the day with all the sunshine, but at night with clear skies and light winds the colder air is sinking. The South Island has already had this colder air flushed away by warm nor'westers, the North Island will see the overnight lows lift up this weekend.

Here's tonight's map for you - and thanks for the support, we look forward to growing our forecasting services in 2020 starting with seasonal/climate updates which we will put our for the first time next week. It's designed to be quite simplistic and we look forward to feedback on it as we progress through 2020 :)

Waitomo caves

Help. How can I tell which forecast is physically closest to Waitomo caves. When I type in Waitomo 4 locations come up! Looking for weather forecast for 30 November in Waitomo Caves village. Cheers

Hi there, They are basically

Hi there,

They are basically all forecasting for a very similar location but the best one is probably the first one that comes up as Waitomo Caves, Otorohanga. Looks great for Nov 30 at this very early stage :)

Chch thunderstorms

Hi..there will only be this one thunder storm for the afternoon..yes?

Keep an eye on our Chch

Keep an eye on our Chch forecast as it's being live updated every 30 to 60 mins this afternoon. But yes most likely.

Hi there WW Team. Rude

Hi there WW Team. Rude question: am I the only one in Dunedin that is seeing single digit highs for Mornington?? For the past few days??? The station ID is IOTAGODU31 Can you guys please give it a boot?? ((Or disable?)) Thanking you at Weather Watch. PS: Golf ball size hail is NOT fun. I've driven in it before ((storm chasing)). Prayers for folks in Timaru.

No worries at all, we've

No worries at all, we've removed that station so within an hour it should have gone for you. Let us know how you get on. And yes incredible hail storms today, the damage has been significant around Timaru, now it's moving into Ashburton and towards Christchurch.

Clear skies

Do you guys think the cloud will break up in Auckland on Wednesday before 9pm so we'll be able to see the 60 satellites from space x go by? This website shows the time they'll be visible, just after 9pm https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/?special=starlink-2019-11

Lower level cloud may have

Lower level cloud may have cleared but there may be some high cloud about, hopefully it's thin enough in your case that you'll see what your looking for.

Android App

Hi, Just recently noticed that I can no longer update a specific location on my app. I live in Kauri outside of Whangarei and want to check weather in Coopers Beach Taipa at my bach. I search in location settings and despite my best efforts always goes back to Kamo...which is not where I live which is Kauri. (but its close) Never been an issue before...should I uninstall and reinstall or is this a problem you are aware of? Thanks for the best best weather service...soooo much better than metservice Cheers Wayne

Your Wx site.

Greetings, the only reason we went looking for another site is our mainstay for the last many years was the 'metservice'. Sadly, someone in their management had a 'brain fart' and decided to change it. Sadly, they don't / didn't understand the 'KISS' principle - so here we are, we found your site. I can't see the metservice admitting they made a mistake, so I guess we're here to stay. PLEASE keep your site simple and easy for the 'great unwashed' to use and understand. Cheers, Ian.

Metservice "new updated site

Ïan, couldn't agree more, new metservice site is terrible.

Hi Ian, thanks for this. We

Hi Ian, thanks for this. We are making a big upgrade to our website this summer, but it's mostly to do with making the website work faster, work smarter and be more secure. Our upcoming upgrade is the biggest in 10 years and is needed to keep the website working (it will seriously crash under the weight of data if we keep it this way). Hopefully most people can see why we needed to upgrade and will still find everything they need.

We are a bit surprised so many millions of dollars went into the MetService site for such little change. It's also the third major change to the MetService website this decade so far! This is the number one issue WW has with the two Government forecasters though - so much wasted money for no real return on the tax payer who owns them. And still they won't freely share data we have all already paid for.

Cheers

Phil D

Site change.

Greetings Phil, With any 'upgrades', PLEASE oh PLEASE, keep it simple. All the 'great unwashed' want is to know is what the Wx was an hour ago, is right now (although we can always look out the window) and will be in the near future. It's my opinion that the metservice wants to provide a service to about 2% of the population? Normal people fail to accept that they need an online tutorial to help them find their way around the site. If it was well presented and worth all the millions they have spent it shouldn't be necessary, simply to find out the basics quickly. Big icons, a bit of colour, good focus and movement on rain radar for people to gauge likely time and direction. Summaries, photos, traffic, advice on gardening, very long term forecasts - nice to have but not necessary. Comparisons to last year and yesterday's rainfall of more interest if we have time. Cheers, Ian.

Metservice

I am the same as you , I also used the metservice site for work and fishing as their rain and wind predictions were very good, now there sie tells you nothing other than it will be fine unless it is raining.

i have a relative in christchurch

i heard christchurch just had a tornado. i have a relative in christchurch and i wanna know how strong the tornado was. thanks

It wasn't overly strong

It wasn't overly strong compared to tornadoes you hear about in the USA but for us in NZ it would have been a bit of a jolt to the system. It would have been an EF0 or EF1 at best.

WW

thanks

thanks alot. poor old christchurch i feel sorry for the city. earthquakes, mosque attack and now a tornado. has christchurch itself ever gotten a tornado? if not then todays twister was the first one. it was quite shocking to see. i wonder if the thunderstorm was a supercell?

Christchurch has indeed had

Christchurch has indeed had tornadoes in the past, a few of them.

Here's a list I compiled once, some dates I have information for, other's I have just a date. I've also included a few in the wider Canterbury region:

1962 - Tornado in Chch (information limited)

1975 - (tornado in Governors Bay, Lyttleton Harbour)

1983 - two tornadoes hit Chch, mainly Halswell

1994 - Tornado in Barry's Bay, Banks Peninsula

1999 - Tornado reported at Ruapuna near Mayfield, Mid Canterbury

1999 - Funnel cloud lifted roof tiles and blew a few windows out in Avonside

2002 - A landspout tornado seen west of Chch, another mesocyclonic tornado dropped down near Tai Tapu for a time

Beyond that I've seen various funnels and there have been other tornadic events about the Canterbury region since I've been looking out for them. They have always happened and will continue to do so :)

Cheers
Aaron

thanks for that

it was odd cause yesterday marked the 1 year since the north ashburghton tornado. yesterdays tornado in christchurch must of been the first one since 2002 then. they dont happen much there as taranaki does but still happens.

auckland rain

you guys said it will be drier than average in the vid. but theres been a few downpours here today. getting another one right now. i am quite confused.

One day of rain doesn't

One day of rain doesn't reverse a year of below normal rainfall. Hopefully some downpours bring relief to those that need it most but it's hit and miss.

Cheers

will it ever stop raining in south Otago long enough to get our crops planted and do silage and balage ? thanks

From the 22nd looks fairly

From the 22nd looks fairly dry barring the potential for a few spits on the 23rd. There's some potential for a little bit of wet weather till then :(

Saturday 16/11

Hi guys, Hows Saturday looking for Auckland? We have a cricket game and looking at the rain maps there seems no rain but the forecast suggests some rain? Thanks a lot Allen

Morning Allen, it's looking

Morning Allen, it's looking mainly dry but rain and showers south of Auckland might come up as far north as the Auckland region for a time - so we can't say a totally dry day (even though it does look mainly dry). Based on the rain maps right now it looks like you should be able to play but it's a little borderline as to how far north these showers might go. It's on your side for now though!

Cheers
Phil D

high risk

metservice has a high risk of thunderstorms for auckland tommorow morning. and i dont know why. please explain to me? cause we have had plenty of thunder this week.

Hi there Probably best to ask

Hi there

Probably best to ask them about their thunderstorm outlook I would think?

There may be a risk about Auckland, looking higher for Northland. Either way that front is starting to weaken a little as it approaches. We'll have to wait and see!

Cheers
Aaron

Naysayers

Hi guys. I don't know what many people's problems are with your forecasts. You had your rain percentage indicator jump hugely for 7am this morning and it started raining outside my front door at 6.48am. 12 minutes out for a prediction - pretty damn good in my opinion! If you could make it hold off for about another half-an-hour whilst I walk to work though, that would be great. Couple of extra thunderstorms wouldn't go amiss either...... Continuing great work will be appreciated!

Weather in Kumeu on 16th November

Hi WW team :) One of my work colleagues is getting married this weekend so of course we're all hoping the weather behaves on their big day. What is the current outlook? Thanks!

Hi there Looks like a mostly

Hi there

Looks like a mostly sunny morning then some cloud at times from afternoon. There may be a brief shower or two from afternoon but these look to be mainly staying south of Auckland so hopefully a dry day for you guys.

Winds moderate from the northwest and a high of 21 to 22 degrees.

Cheers
Aaron

Thunderstorms and Hail

Hi At 6am this morning your weather for today predicted heavy rain , thunderstorms and hail for Auckland. Ive checked it again at 9am and it says showers clearing. Has the more severe weather moved elsewhere now? My children are climbing the trees at tree adventures in woodhill today and i was worried about the severe weatther!

east

it was thundering here in east auckland. some hail and heavy rain too. must of been a isolated thudnerstorm dont you think

The isolated thunderstorms

The isolated thunderstorms have now mostly passed (around 7 to 8amam). Hopefully no more thunderstorms for them and only increasing sunny spells today :)

Cheers
WW
