Eventually, weather patterns

Eventually, weather patterns are what they are, some summers are dry, some are wet, some are good or bad whatever your interpretation of that is.

Thunderstorm for Auckland

Are we going to have more thunder cause it very scary

It scares me too

It scares me too

A low chance but more then

A low chance but more then likely no, instability is not looking as good for the Auckland area today. Could be an isolated shower or two perhaps.

Beach Haven Auckland Rain Sat ???

I cleared the garden waited for the rain to pour down at some point on Sat so didn't refill pool! None came but seeing everywhere else in Auckland had storms the only one's we got were Friday night hardly any rain. So what happened?

The nature of thunderstorms

The nature of thunderstorms is they are often quite isolated meaning some areas may get heavy rain / downpours while other areas close by may see nothing at all. It depends where convergence lines form (where winds meet) and what side of the convergence is more dominant as to which side of the Auckland isthmus* clouds / storms form. Or winds may be equal either side meaning storms form right in the middle. Sometimes this is able to be sussed out in regards to what breeze may be more dominant but other times it can be a bit up in the air, excuse the pun. So when thunderstorms are forecast they are often mentioned as only a "risk" of happening as it can be hard to pin point where they may form.

*An isthmus is a narrow piece of land connecting two larger areas across an expanse of water by which they are otherwise separated.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Weather in south Auckland

Hi guys what’s the chances of thunderstorms hitting south south Auckland tonight as I work night shift and want to make sure i have the right gears with me

Sorry our reply may be a

Sorry our reply may be a little late, but you've probably realised we do have some thunderstorms - quite a bit flare up at the moment (10pm) but should taper off later. Might be more overnight and tomorrow too (like today, isolated but possibly big).

Cheers and all the best

TOmorrow in Auckland

Hi team between what time can we expect rain tomorrow in West Auckland and what time do you see it easing/clearing?

Hi there, we have the right

Hi there, we have the right ingredients for big downpours, maybe thunder, but like today it may only affect a small portion of the region. This set up is a bit like cooking popcorn in the this analogy!). Keep an eye on our forecasts on Saturday, we tend to live update (which means every 30 mins or so) when the weather becomes unstable/changeable or high demand. 
Cheers :)

Thunder

Lots of thunder overhead here in Titirangi in past few mins, no rain as of yet. Is today the highest risk, or is there a higher risk of storms tomorrow?

Hi there, good question as

Hi there, good question as we've had a few risk days this week but the Friday/Saturday period was always most likely to be most active. Still some isolated thunderstorms in West Auckland this afternoon, Saturday has a a similar risk but there may be a few showers with no thunder too.

Hedge Trimming

Hi Guys - Ive hired some hedge trimming gear for tomorrow in Auckland...when do you think the worst of the rain will be coming through? Many thanks

Hey there, to be honest with

Hey there, to be honest with you Auckland's forecast tomorrow is very tricky to be precise about as these sorts of downpours can bubble up over quite a large area but only affect a minority. Frustrating! At this stage it looks like there could be both mid to late morning and afternoon isolated downpours, possibly more likely in western Auckland and rural North and South. We'll be likely live updating our Auckland forecast on Saturday to stay on top of this so check back for updates. All the best with the hedge trimming - there should be some good dry spells around.

Cheers

Weather forecasting accuracy

There seems to be a tendency for most forecasts from other providers to be over forecasting .That is they seem to go for the worst case scenario ? Why do they do that ?

NZ Herald are shockers for

NZ Herald are shockers for this. They will "cherry pick" comments from various reputable sources including Metservice and Weatherwatch and report them out of context to suit their dramatic headline.

Hi there, this is due to them

Hi there, this is due to them covering their backs basically, so they can say "see, we warned you" - but the downside is that you become the boy who cried wolf. Thunderstorms in NZ can be especially tricky to be precise about but extra care in the wording of forecasts, plus extra updates, can make a world of difference at reducing "big" forecasts and improving accuracy.

Cheers
WW

Overforecasting.

Thanks for reply. You are correct that they are the boy(s) who cried wolf. Well done Weather Watch

Many thanks :) - WW

Many thanks :)

Cyclone Owen

I see the good old NZ Herald has jumped of the deep end again with the bold statement "A tropical cyclone nearing Australia will hit New Zealand just days before Christmas" . What do you guy reckon about Owen?

Hi there, we have a news

Hi there, we have a news story about Owen on our homepage. The remnants may come here but they might only be a few showers or downpours. No storm at all is forecast for NZ at this stage with it likely falling part over eastern Aussie. One to watch though as Owen has reformed and has some potential to reform once again before NZ...but that is currently not what we are forecasting.
Cheers

WW

Thanks guys, nice to see some

Thanks guys, nice to see some sanity prevailing with weather stories compared to attention-grabbing statements with no real substance behind them. Well done.

Sea Breezes

Is not Massey too far from the sea to be bothered with sea breezes and the prevailing SW comes from across the sea anyway

Hi there Not too sure what

Hi there

Not too sure what you are trying to say here. The situation today and again tomorrow for Auckland will be a sea breeze set up. Winds coming from both directions meeting in the middle over the Auckland isthmus.

Cheers
Aaron

Interestingly, Metservice'

Interestingly, Metservice' thunderstorm outlook for tomorrow (wednesday) has 0 risk of thunderstorms for Auckland, with you guys saying they are possible. usually it's the other way around! What's the odds of a t'storm over West Auckland these coming few days (I see you have storms possible wed-fri)

Hey there, yes you're quite

Hey there, yes you're quite right! We're quite a bit more conservative with thunderstorms (which is why Auckland Civil Defence hired us for nearly a decade to reduce their false alarms coming from MetService). Wednesday's risk is mainly in Waikato but it does somewhat spillover into South Auckland (hence our mention). West Auckland, at this stage, looks dry for Weds but Thursday may see downpours further north towards Hokianga drift down into Waitakere. Friday has a similar risk. Overall looks mainly dry but big cloud build ups/downpours/thunder can drift in the sea breezes. Auckland has a LOT of moving parts with the weather sometimes!!
Cheers
Phil D

Daily Temperatures

Why does the Met Service website tell me that it is 30 deg in Te Kuiti today (and it certainly feels it!) and your website says its only 27 deg. How can there be any discrepancy?

Hi there, good question.

Hi there, good question. MetService has select areas where they have a weather station but temperatures can vary quite a bit in NZ within towns/cities. Some can vary by as much as 10 degrees at the same time. Inland there's less fluctuation but normal to expect a few degrees difference. We aren't sure where MetService get their Te Kuiti reading from but you can see many weather stations in your area here www.weatherwatch.co.nz/observations

Saturday in Auckland

Hey Aaron/Phil How we looking for sport this Saturday in west Auckland?

Hi there, the weekend is a

Hi there, the weekend is a little 50/50 in Auckland due to downpours and drizzle patches both possible...plus plenty of dry weather too. Looks like an afternoon downpour is possible out west on Saturday PM, but hard to know in advance if it will form/affect western areas or to the rural north or south and avoid the city entirely. Keep an eye on the rain maps for more detail. All the best!
Cheers

Wedding weather

Hi Guys - I'm getting married in Auckland on Tamaki Drive on Friday afternoon...fingers crossed the weather stays the same with some sun but wondering how cold the wind will be from the South at 4pm......we have the option of inside or outside so need to make a call by Thursday morning... thanks in advance

Hi thereTemperatures will be

Hi there

Temperatures will be around 19 to 20 degrees at 4pm, drifting down to 17 degrees at 7pm. Hitting 15 at 10pm.

You can hit the "hourly forecasts" tab under each day and that will give you a rundown of where the temperatures will be at at what time etc. Looks like I got it about right, I forgot we even had that! lol.

Hope that helps!

Ch ch temp

Hi..as an avid regular follower of your service you might want to check your chch thermometers..been showing 0deg for a few days on the "now" section of your chch forecast.. regards

Hi there, can you please give

Hi there, can you please give us the Station ID so we can remove it. We are working to improve weather sensors next year as we do not operate/own any ourselves. Sadly the NZ Government won't give us access to public weather stations we all have to fund so we always have to find alternatives.

Do you reckon we are going to

Do you reckon we are going to see gales in Auckland tonight?

Hi there, winds aren't

Hi there, winds aren't expected to be gale force tonight but will be a bit blustery at times. In knots (below) gale force is 30 and up (red). Auckland looks to be mainly in the 15 to 25 knot bracket. It will be a fairly solid wind in exposed places with a few big gusts overnight - possibly briefly gale force in the most exposed areas (like the Harbour Bridge, hill tops, marine areas, etc). Keep an eye on your hourly forecasts for average wind speeds specific to where you are and use the Wind Maps too to help see where the strongest winds will be and when. The low moving in is also falling apart so damaging winds aren't currently forecast.

Saturday in Auckland

Hi Phil/Aaron, What’s West Auckland looking like tomorrow? When can rain be expected and any dry spells on the horizon? Asking from a cricketing perspective around midday. Thank you

Hi there, Saturday is a very

Hi there, Saturday is a very tricky day to be accurate about because we have both a band of rain moving in, then the risk of some heavy downpours - but it's hit and miss with dry spells developing. Can't answer your question with any real certainty due to the hit and miss nature of tomorrow. Definitely some chances you'll be ok to play then, but equally there could be a downpour that sets in... frustrating weather to plan things around! Sorry we can't be more specific than that.

Cheers

School holidays- Auckland

Hi there We’re just wondering if it’ll be a good one or not- all this rain is worrying! Thanks

Hi there We can look out for

Hi there

We can look out for the next 5 to 7 days currently, anything beyond that starts to get a bit hard especially with this type of weather we have at the moment.

Keep an eye on our rain maps if you like, this way you can track areas of rain and where they may move in future. See them here: https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Perhaps mid to late next week conditions are a bit drier :)
