Weather for Saturday 26th in Auckland

Hi there, what's the weather going to be like in Auckland on the Saturday 26th of Jan?

Day could start out a bit wet

A few showers are possible in the morning, then dry conditions for the most part.  Should be a bit breezy and highs will likely be in the mid 20's.

That's a very early forecast though.  We will likely need to adjust that as we get closesr to next Saturday.

Cheers
WW
 

According to the charts it'll

According to the charts it'll still be howling in Auckland for the next 3 days till it finally settles down for how little.

Weather for Sunday in Auckland

It says that there are a chance of showers on Sunday on your forecast for Auckland... But is it likely that it will rain in the afternoon around and after 1pm on the North Shore around East Coast Bays as I have some planned outdoor activities for the kids so I'm hoping for some good weather...

It will likely only be a few

It will likely only be a few light showers in the morning, not solid sustained rain.

The afternoon should be mostly dry so you should be ok all going well.

Cheers

Auckland Anniversary

Early days yet but what's your long range forecast for Anniversary Weekend? Heading to Awhitu Peninsular in Auckland for camping and fishing and fingers crossed, hoping for the best!

At this stage it's looking

At this stage it's looking brilliant with possible east to south east winds.  If south east expect very hot and sunny - but easterly can be a little cooler with more clouds.  Keep checking our long range maps - hopefully things won't change!

Sure are strong Westerlies

Strong Westerlies gusting in New Lynn North as Weather Watch forecast. Just listened to a weather report on radio and it said Northerlies turning to Westerlies Duh! a little slow they are :)

Hi there - unfortunately

Hi there - unfortunately NewstalkZB take our news service but not our weather service - so the forecasts you hear each hour are from MetService in Wellington.  Glad to see WW was accurate!

Hi guys, Do you know what the

Hi guys,
Do you know what the lowest rainfall for the month of Jan is on record? Do you think we are heading for it,
Only four mm to date in south Auckland and not much on the forecast
Cheers

Hi there, not off the top of

Hi there, not off the top of my head but not doubt there have been some January's with very little to possibly none.  Your best bet is to email NIWA and ask them as we don't keep historical data - but they do.  We aren't expecting much rain this month - it's possible the rest of January may be mainly dry in Auckland though, we currently see no real rain makers.  Today is the closest we've seen and most parts of Auckland haven't had a drop or only a mm or 2.

Cheers

Not really

A few chances for rain coming up.  One on Tuesday and then again on Friday.  Of those two days, it looks like the best chance for getting wet will be on Tuesday.

Your Tauranga temperatures

Are way off reality. If you aren't going to do them properly don't bother. You're about 4 degrees out for most days.

Wow

How hard is it to give feedback politely to this website, instead of this aggressive comment?

Tauranga

Thanks for the feedback and yes they are computer generated and more main centres will be rolled out this year.

Cheers

Next week

Hi Phil
What are your thoughts on a possible nasty low racing across the Tasman about Tuesday next week?. Not all computers are forecasting it but some are. It doesn't look very nice if it does eventuate

Cheers
Dave

Forecast

Hi there, I'm getting married in Kapiti on the 9th of feb, how far out can you forecast the weather?

Feb 9

Hi there

It's a little early at this stage but please get in touch about 10 days out and we could give you a better idea.

Thanks

WW

Weather forecasts

I check two websites for the forecast everyday- Weather watch and Metservice. Almost every day each website has two totally different forecasts. Why is this? Who do we as consumers know which one will be correct?

Regards

Weatherwatch the most consistent

I still watch the Metservice forecast that TVNZ uses during the news and it's rarely right for us. Weatherwatch on the other hand, has been mostly spot on. And given it's weather we're talking about, I'm very happy with 'mostly spot on'. If they could predict weather spot on, I'd ask them to predict my Lotto numbers too :D

Different sources, different forecasters

We are two different entities.  We think we have a better product.  But in the end, it's up to you to decide which service serves you best.  Which one is the most correct for your area.  Thanks for your support - we hugely value it, and please pass on to your frends and family, as word of mouth is our biggest way of getting more resources to make our products even more accurate and localised :)

Cheers

strong winds

Strong winds now here in south auckland at 9.47pm.

Tasmania bush fire haze?

I'm seeing reduced visibility looking south from the Remuera Road ridge. Normally I've got a view out to Manukau and beyond except when it's raining, but right now visibility is cutting off at about Penrose or Onehunga. No rain on the radar and strong winds from the west. Could it be from the Tasmanian bush fires?

Hazy skies over central Auckland and CBD on 7th Jan 2013

Why was the atmosphere so hazy most of the day today even with so much wind about?

Its all over Waitakere too,

Its all over Waitakere too, would love to know what and why this is??

Yes I wondered this also?

Yes I wondered this also? Could it be dust as the ground is so dry and wind so gusty?

Wind destroys gazebo

Watched the neighbours gazebo blow to bits in the wild wind gusts in New Lynn. Not good having gazebos up in this windy weather.

Strong winds

New Lynn North has very strong gusts of wind, but beautiful & sunny. Looked like sprinkles of rain over the Waitakeres. Hate to think how gusty it is out on the Waitemata Harbour.

Wind information

As a keen yachtie I have been really annoyed at the lack of accurate information on wind speeds. I have been out three times in the last three weeks intending to stay out overnight, but prediction of wind warnings and 40 knot winds in all occasions did not occur. In fact last weekend, started in the middle of the week with great prediction for the weekend - then pow! Saturday forecast suddenly the low to the east appeared strongly with rain and 40 knot predicted. So Sat afternoon came home. Sunday - where were the 40 knots and the rain - we would have struggled to have had 12 knots. This is becoming a habit and fellow yachties and boaties are now getting a little tired of it and will go out regardleess - forecasts are like the boy calling wolf!!!! Yes I know today its windy! But too many good times out ruined because of very wrong forecasts on wind predictions - why is this?

Accurate

Use predictwind.com or swellmap.com. they are accurate

Wind forecasts

I agree with you totally. I am assuming you refer to Metservice marine forecast? They tend to overforecast wind speed I believe as self protection from citicism.

The problem is they do sometimes get it right, so although I don't rely on them you cannot ignore a warning of 40kts. It is definately frustrating.

We find it best to consider various maps etc and assess it ourselves but I would never ignore a warning of severe gales. At least you are still here able to tell the tale I guess, rather than ignoring it & getting caught out by it.

Cheers
Dave

Wind Forecasts

I have to comment that I do use many forecasts before going sailing. and have found nothing reasonably accurate as far as wind goes. I also look at maps etc.,and make a judgement which seems to be more accurate than anything else these days. But not being expert dont want to get too confident. There is a big difference between 12 knots and 40 knots - predicted on numerous occasions lately. As we have had these high winds now, there was the risk people just went for it, I agree 40 knots must be taken seriously, but when you have tried to commence your holiday 3 times and been fooled each time, its very frustrating - surely more accuracy, or close to it, can be achieved in this day and age?? Do agree with comments re Metservice, think they are being very overly cautious, but there does seem to be a genuine lack of ability to predict the wind,

Hi, Whats the weather looking

Hi,

Whats the weather looking like for the 18th and 19th of Jan =) ...

No sign of calm

Wind is still blowing briskly in New Lynn North. Calm in shelter. Big trees moving well.

Sunday

Auckland hit a high of 27 degrees with SW conditions on Sunday.

Not a cloud in the sky

Auckland skies are totally blue with no clouds to be seen. A fantastic day.

Gorgeous we agree!

 ...and it's rare :)

Even tomorrows a bit dubious

Even tomorrows a bit dubious also,the flow southerly,it wont reach 26 surely you know that? 23/24 yes not 26 in auckland

That's ok as we have 25

That's ok as we have 25 above.

I would expect high temperatures tomorrow to range between 23 and 25 in Auckland.
