Wind in Kaeo

Do you think the wind will die down in Kaeo this summer? Historically it’s either windy all summer, or still it summer. This year so far it looks windy. Thank you.

Hi there It'll calm down at

Hi there

It'll calm down at some point but when that will be I'm not sure. I tend to stick with forecasting the next 5 to 6 days ahead and leave it at that.

Hopefully it calms down for you soon! :)

Sunny and warm Christmas for Auckland (North shore)

Hi there, I was wondering alot of websites and different forecast are indicating a warmer than average day for christmas (24 °C), is it likely that it will get any hotter in Norhtern and Western areas on Christmas day. Also, I find that the forecasts on this website are quite accurate, so I am impressed with how often it is right on point with the actual outcome of what the weather turns out to be. I used this website for christmas last year and I thought it was a good indicator of what the Christmas and boxing day outlooks were. Hope you have a great christmas break, looking foward to seeing how nice the weather is here in North Shore for christmas from, Zane

Hi Zane The forecast is

Hi Zane

The forecast is basically the forecast so 24 it is. There will be variables across the Auckland region. It may get a fraction warmer in northern suburbs perhaps? Western areas may be a touch cooler if anything due to a west to southwest breeze.

Thanks for the kind words, you have a great Christmas! :)

Christmas in Dunedin

LOL thanks guys the weather forecast for Dunedin is hilarious. Have a safe and wonderful Christmas and New Year!! Thank you for all the great work you have done throughout the year with your spot on forecasts!!

yes its is funny

it made me laugh too. better than metservice forecast. they have no sense of humer at all. weatherwatch.nz forecast can make me laugh sometimes. the people who operates it definatly have some sense of humer.

dunedin

the dunedins forecast for christmas day just made me crack up. you guys are the best weather forecasters ever.

I was just going to comment

I was just going to comment as such on the Dunners 25 Dec forecast. You all are awesome at WW. Merry Christmas to you from Dunedin!!!

Bit of a change in more ways

Bit of a change in more ways than one today for Christchurch. WW was more into the dramatics than Metservice this time. For 2 days you warned of possible heavy showers, t/storms and small hail from midday courtesy of an active front. They only mentioned chance of heavy showers. Reality; Change arrived on cue late AM but it was a fizzer. Quite a wind for a while but only some drizzly rain that barely dampened the road, nothing else. Pleasant now late afternoon with light winds. You say in a comment the so called active front will bring heavy rain to Wellington and the lower Nth Island about now. How does that work? But I also thank you for the great easy to read weather info and the frequently reliable forecasts. WW plays a part in my day with 3-5 daily visits. Cheers.

Hi thereThe key is in your

Hi there

The key is in your answer, warned of "possible heavy showers / thunder". It was a possibility, not a guarantee. I live in Christchurch and noticed a bit more then drizzle with the change as it moved through.

And just to note MS I believe didn't have a chance of thunder for Wellington and changed it to be more in line with our forecast.

I'm not being critical of that it's a good move but in this game you win some you lose some. Hopefully win more then we lose all forecasters would hope, there are many varying levels to this though.

Thanks for checking in anyway, Merry Christmas!

Aaron 

thanks

Thank you

Please accept my thanks for all the good work over the past year. The WW team do an amazing job in explaining the weather in ways that us laypeople can understand. All of the site from the maps, Rural Weather, the videos, the updates and news is very much appreciated and easily understood. All the very best to everyone at WW for the festive season and 2020.

Hi there, thank you so much -

Hi there, thank you so much - our entire team massively appreciates your support...correction, your AMAZING support :) Thank you - and have a great Christmas, New Year and Summer ahead!

auckland - west, south, north and east etc

Kia ora, What are the chances of getting weather forecasts for the different areas of Auckland... as it is a huge area to cover... It could be raining in south Auckland but sunny on the westside.. and you only have it up for Auckland..! Kinda needs to be a bit more precise these days... Thanks and yep I do appreciate your great work predicting the weather for us all :-) Merry xmas to you and all your team :-)

Kia Ora and thanks heaps for

Kia Ora and thanks heaps for your message. We actually already cover all these areas in two ways. 1) We were the first forecaster in Auckland to live track weather in any suburb - so if a major storm appears in your suburb we'll be live tracking it in our main Auckland forecast, unlike any other NZ forecaster. 2) We have detailed forecasts for your specific location - not just west, east, north, south, but specifically where you are. Combine the two and you have a great forecast for Auckland. Yes Auckland is a large region, but it's a major mistake to split the city into North, South, East and West when the city is just 1km wide at one point. So WW covers the entire region every day - but get very specific when more intense weather appears within parts of the city/region.

Cheers and thanks so much for the support! Merry Christmas to you too :)

Invercargill

Is it going to start feeling a little bit like summer down here soon? It’s getting ridiculous the amount of rain and cold we have had for the past 2-3 months. Definitely the coldest and wettest summer I’ve ever seen in my 45 years!

Hi there, today is certainly

Hi there, today is certainly a miserable one for this time of year but we do have some better weather coming up. Tomorrow is warmer, calmer and drier. Christmas day looks a little cooler but should be dry :) Unfortunately your current set up does match our December and Summer outlook, that conditions will lean both wetter and cooler for you this summer. Here's the full info for you: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/new-december-summer-climate-outlook-new-zealand-8-maps

Cheers

WW

Thanks

What’s it looking like for central Otago? We head up there for Christmas and even it’s not looking great weather!

no more thunder

is there not gonna be anymore thunderstorms till next year. cause. we havnt had much sstorms this year as we did last year. we did get some good storms around august and september though.

Hey guys Any idea of what

Hey guys Any idea of what NYE is looking like for the Auckland region? I see some life coming to the Tropics up by Fiji around the 29th. Any chance of that heading towards NZ or will the big highs coming in from Australia push that away? Long way off but thoughts would be great. Thanks :)

Best thing to do since we are

Best thing to do since we are so far out is for me to point you in the direction of these maps:

http://www.weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps

Click on "Rain" then scroll through the drop down menu to NYE, you can see what type of weather we may expect. Currently it's looking rather anticyclonic and settled. But that could change...... hence it's best to keep an eye on those maps :)

Cheers
Aaron

Hi there, with all these cold

Hi there, with all these cold changes and what seems like more in the long range and extra long range models of GFS, and after it has been summery the last month and a half, is it a case of summers over before it begun, or will summer just be very short this year? thanks and merry christmas.

Hi there, we have our

Hi there, we have our December and Summer Season forecast out now: www.weatherwatch.co.nz/content/new-december-summer-climate-outlook-new-zealand-8-maps

It's already living up to the December forecast for most places. This cold period will linger into next week then eases - but we are likely having cooler changes off and on for the rest of December. The further north you live the warmer it will be.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to you!

Tides

Hi , when checking the Tides i see Onehunga is still not included . This is a very large harbor and would be very useful to many people , Thanks

Hi there, we are improving

Hi there, we are improving our tide info next year and will be including local tides within our local land forecasts (so you don't have to go to another page). Pretty sure Onehunga will be included in that change. Not sure when this will happen but aiming for the first half of 2020.

Kind regards

Christchurch Saturday

Hi team, Any likelihood yet of Sunday's fine weather coming early and temperatures picking up Saturday afternoon? Wedding is on Saturday so fingers are crossed

Hi there Saturday currently

Hi there

Saturday currently has some morning mid level cloud breaking then expect sunny areas and some high cloud, southwesterly winds tend east to northeast in the afternoon. A high somewhere around 16 to 17 degrees.

Hope the day goes well!

Cheers

Hi there, Firstly Happy

Hi there, Firstly Happy Christmas to you all. It seems like 2019 has been a good year for you guys. Just one question before the holidays, despite there being no videos over the summer will you still do a January forecast? Cheers.

Hi there and Merry Christmas

Hi there and Merry Christmas to you too :) We've had one busy year alright and next year looks even bigger and better. :) As for no videos - don't worry, we continue our news content over this time even though we do have fewer daily updates we still tackle the main issues and we'll definitely be issuing a January forecast before New Year's Eve.

Cheers

Rain forecasts

Looks like none of the forecast showers/ some heavy on Sat/Sun/Mon Dec 14, 15, 16 eventuated, even though percentage chances were high (in the 90% range) across Sunday in particular. Seems we are not getting the windflows right into areas that need it like NW Auckland rural area, i note yours & competitors forecast rain of some description, but nothing doing? Starting to suffer up here. Cheers

Hi there, understand your

Hi there, understand your frustration. These slow set ups where high pressure is very nearby can make for a fine line between showers existing and showers falling apart. If the high grows even just a little in size it can stop these showers from moving in. That's why the percentage is high but you're bang on correct about the direction of these airflows that can stop them arriving. Tuesday is the best chance of rain with low pressure moving in and the lower the pressure the better chances of rain as a general rule - and we have more showers later in the week.  The definition of showers means that they can miss you though - so while our forecast could've been more accurate/helpful over the weekend it was also technically correct. Good luck for some rain in the next 24 hours but overall our Dec and Summer forecast suggests Auckland and Northland will be drier than average.

Cheers
WW

Santa Tracker - Christmas Eve

HI There, Happy Holidays to everyone at WW :) Your latest video states you are on holiday from Friday 20th December. I was wondering if you are having the availablility of the Santa Tracker you have each year on Christmas Eve? For the past few years this has been part of my daughter Christmas eve Tradition, from early evening until bed time. No mention of the tracker being available this year has left me wondering if it will be? Keep up the good work and I wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and Safe and Happy Holidays. G

Hi there, it is coming back

Hi there, it is coming back for sure :) Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

Rain on Friday - Auckland

Hi there, Any chance that the rain scheduled for Auckland on Friday gets delayed? Seems like clear or sunny days before and after. Being the last day of work, was planning a few drinks and BBQ in the later afternoon/evening...

Hi there, we have a fairly

Hi there, we have a fairly fast moving cold front moving in around then. Timing is the hardest part of forecasting when talking days out so the best way to track the highest risk if to click on Friday then click on the Hourly forecasts. Combine that with the rain maps and should work out when the front moves through. To be honest, sometimes exact precise timing of fronts cannot be locked in until the day itself. All the best for Friday! :)
