Tuesday overnight perhaps and

Tuesday overnight perhaps and Wednesday yes there may be low level snow (200 to 100m), snow in Christchurch might be pushing it, it's on that fine line where it's probably just not cold enough for sea level snow but if temperatures drop any more then it may be more likely. But the reverse is true also, if temperatures rise by a degree or two then sea level snow in Chch will not be likely. We'll be doing a string of updates tonight for Christchurch on this issue.

Rain Forecast

Why doesn't the forecast show the type of rain anymore? The chance of rain gives no indication of whether it will be heavy or a few sprinkles. This is a world wide change I know but is useless for us ordinary people. Thanks

Hi there, we do actually have

Hi there, we do actually have this data but so far we aren't showing it because we're still monitoring the accuracy. The biggest problem in NZ is actually fine tuning the forecasts and too many times we see "Heavy rain" or "thunderstorms" only to find nothing happened (or it happened just up the road instead). Yesterday, for example, there was a high (90%+) chance of rain in Auckland yet it was mainly dry but pouring just up in Northland - the forecast wasn't wildly wrong it's just NZ is tricky due to being so skinny, mountainous and surrounded by sea. So we don't want to be forecasting "Heavy rain" only to find you had a bit of drizzle. We hope to be adding details about rain TOTALS and INTENSITY specific to your location in the fairly near future as we continue to fine tune the data as best as we can to reduce false alarms. Our biggest pet peeve is false alarms around heavy rain or thunder and so we're always trying to do better in this area.

Cheers for the feedback!

The weather company seems

The weather company seems pretty useless lately the weatherwatch forecast says 0% chance of rain for tomorrow and so do the rain maps and the weather company hourly percentages makes it 60% chance of rain these conflicting forecasts are a real pain especially when people have plans outdoors the hourly forecasts need to be sorted asap.

There is quite a tight and

There is quite a tight and complex low moving in with a narrow but heavy rain band emedded within it, we have just updated to our latest outlook but there may be further changes to come. This will be a challenge to forecast and unfortunately with this one there may be a little bit of conflicting information, in the first instance please follow our written forecasts but just keep the other information in mind re hourly figures etc.

Dunedin this weekend

I've been watching with interest this week the forecast for the long weekend in Dunedin. All week you've predicted it would be mostly dry and your state owned competitor has said it would be wet! Just today they've changed theirs to be more in line with yours so well done Weather Watch! Of course if your'e both wrong I'll be back here to complain next week ;) Keep up the good work. -Dave

Haha, thanks for the update

Haha, thanks for the update Dave! Dunedin is a tricky place to forecast for but our rain data is generally pretty good at seeing trends developing. Still work to be done to fine tune it but definitely good to get updates like this to support what we do! Look forward to your next complaint! :)

Hi there No idea, based on

Hi there

No idea, based on probabilities probably not but I guess you never know. We deal with the next 5 to 10 days of weather max mostly, anything beyond that becomes guess work apart from the obvious (it's colder in winter than summer etc).

Thanks for writing in!

Will it snow in chch if not will it ever be snowing fully in chch like 2011 snow days?

Hi there No snow for Chch in

Hi there

No snow for Chch in the city at the moment.

Eventually it will snow again like it did in 2011, whether it's this winter or sometime in the next 5 years I'm not sure but eventually it will happen again :)

Dunedin

Hi, With you forecasting snow for Dunedin 400-200 on Sunday, do you think that snow will settle at 200M? Thanks

Hi there. We don't expect a

Hi there. We don't expect a lot of snow to those levels but certainly the risk of flurries here and there. As for settling at 200M, seems less likely as still a bit too mild, along with soil temps.  Always a very fine line between snow and no snow in set ups like this.

Kind regards

morning heading to lake waikaremoana tonight

can you tell me the forcast for the lake area tonight sat,sunday thanks john

Hi John Tonight I would

Hi John

Tonight I would expect cool southwesterly winds, cloudy areas and the risk of a shower or two. Hopefully most of the big beefy showers that are moving through today will have cleared by late afternoon / early evening then it boils down to the risk of a shower through the night with many dry spells.

Tomorrow sees morning cloud, still the risk of a shower but showers are more likely to be nearer the coast. Becoming mostly sunny into the afternoon with cool southwesterelies easing. Sunday is dry in the morning with some high cloud then showers develop in the afternoon with a southwest change, likely to be early afternoon. Becoming drier in the evening with showers easing / perhaps clearing away.

An overnight low tonight of 4 degrees, perhaps 3. Highs on Sat and Sun of between 10 to 12 degrees.

Hope that helps, have a great weekend!

Cheers

Queens Birthday Weekend

Hi Dave - looks to be a large low forming around then but the models are yet to work out precisely where (ie, Tasman Sea or just north of NZ). Should all start to allign this weekend we'd imagine, or early next week at the latest.

Cheers :)

Weather for the winter

Hello, I have noticed we are having quite a wet autumn so far. Do you think this is going to continue into a wet winter or will the rain ease? Thanks

Hi there, the weather pattern

Hi there, the weather pattern so far this Autumn has been fairly wet but not as dramatic as last year (which had numerous flood events). As we head towards Winter we're noticing more southerlies so this winter should have more snow and more cold days, especially in the South Island. Seasonal forecasts are often wrong so we tend to look for small trends that may ring true and the uptick in southerlies indicates this winter might have a bit more 'winter weather' in it than previous years. As for wetter, it's appearing wetter than usual in most regions but hard to know how the next 4 months will go as NZ is too small to lock that stuff in. We're certainly seeing a trend of more wet weather in the west (due to many of those southerly wind flows actually tilting more south west).
Cheers

Looks like a few showers on Saturday morning clearing then expect a mix of sun and cloud. Winds breezy from the southwest. Sunday sees sunny spells and the odd shower, plenty of dry spells too, winds breezy from the west or southwest.

Where ever you are feel free to type that location into our search box on the home page and you'll then see a 10 day outlook with high's for each of those days, that should give you a good indication of where temperatures will sit for the upcoming future :)

Hi there, I’ve noticed that some places next week will be seeing some wind and rain... if Auckland going to get much o that? Will it be anything like the storm we had back in April where people lost power?

Hi there Check out our

Hi there

Check out our Auckland forecast page, you will see what we are saying for Auckland coming up weather wise.

Definitely some rain and wind on the way for Auckland, Wednesday could see brisk to strong SW winds. But to have a repeat of the April storm is not looking as likely.

weather station location

Hi there. First, what a great weather site! Vastly superior to one which I won't name. A while ago I saw that the Woodville forecast was from Papatawa, where I live and it was consistently accurate. It's now from somewhere in Palmy and not as accurate. Was there some reason for the shift? It's not a complaint, I'm just curious. Ken

Hey there, thanks for the

Hey there, thanks for the very positive and supporitve feedback Ken! :) The earlier shift was when we migrated from Wunderground (a network that is being shut down gradually) to The Weather Company. We've had a few issues with local weather stations. Sadly NIWA and Metservice can take tax funding, have public weather stations then stop us from using that data due to their own commercial focus. Minister Woods is currently investigating these issues. We are trying to fine tune the private network of stations which has FAR more than the public system but about 15% of these stations aren't reliable and we're working to pick those out.

We're also working on upgrades to all observations, including new technology which can work out current weather without using one specific weather station (A new IBM product we are trialling internally). We hope to make a few upgrades over the coming 12 months to improve local details.

Kind regards and thanks for the info, it's very helpful to us.

Friday at Whangapararoa

Hi there, would it be ok to pour concrete on the day? Thanks Jeff

Hi there, at this stage the

Hi there, at this stage the day may be fairly dry but rain could arrive at night. May also be a few showers on Friday PM. Due to the chaos in the weather pattern next week the hourly forecasts we have for next Friday will be some of the most helpful data to you, especially the % of rain.

All the best

In your video you keep using

In your video you keep using the word stormy? Is it looking stormy for Auckland?

Hi and thank you very much

Hi and thank you very much for your question. 99% of the time Phil and the rest of us at WeatherWatch don't loosely use the word 'stormy' and this indicates a rougher than usual ride for some people over the next week. Auckland, however, is on the high pressure side of the weather so the strong winds won't be so frequent but may occur. For more detailed Auckland forecasts please see the hourly wind speeds in our detailed Auckland forecasts. However we're going to be fine tuning which areas have the strongest winds in the week ahead most likely this weekend in a news update - the chaotic pattern means we need more time than usual to lock it in. The nature of crazy Autumn weather!

palmerston north temperature

I have been checking out the temperatures for Palmerston North the past few days and have noticed that the current temperature is always way out. It is showing 33c at 6:39 pm Wednesday. From Terrace End station. Just thought I'd let you know. Thanks for a great service.

Cheers for letting us know

Cheers for letting us know and thank you for the kind compliment. We are soon making changes to our weather observations. The most local may not actually always be the most accurate so we're finding that sweet middle ground between local and most accurate. Will be sorted some time in winter. Thanks for letting us know - and sorry for letting you down in this area, it's tough NZ is the only country in the entire western world to not have true open weather data even though we all collectively tax fund it for both NIWA and MetService who won't freely share it back with all New Zealanders. But we're working hard to find an immediate to fix this now thanks to IBM/private sector - meanwhile Minister Megan Woods is also investigating why MetService and NIWA are so commercially aggressive with tax funded data and blocking public commercial access to it. So that's a positive step for positive change - and catchng up with the rest of the developed world.

Cheers
WW Weekend Team

NIWA and MetService

You'd expect that since our taxes are paying them the information is owned by us. Not so, eh? Colour me surprised....not. Ken

Dunedin winter

Hi WW Team Could you possibly forecast if we'll have snow in Dunedin soon? Specific area being the University area and maybe in the Kaikorai Valley?? Thanks Team. Your forecast is gold!!

A few cold changes over the

A few cold changes over the next week or so may bring some snow to the hill tops surrounding Dunedin but mostly only briefly. No low down snow looking likely at this stage.

Thanks!
