Hey WW Team

Hi Team Just an FYI, in Dunedin, the Now temp is at 21 degrees (Humidex 23) @ 7:43 am today. Our local says it will be a high of 16 today. The temp report is coming from the 'Town Belt (Dunedin79). Usually it's from Maori Hill. The Now temp seems to be stuck on either 21 or 22 degrees. Day and night since after Christmas. Is this a known issue? Can it be fixed? Please help!!! cheers ;)

Hi there Not to sure there,

Hi there

Not to sure there, that station could be reading incorrectly. If you go to the live observation map here https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/observations

You'll see most temperatures are around 15 to 18 degrees for the Dunedin area. I believe Phil says that eventually miss-reading stations will be weeded out but I'm a bit powerless to do anything about that at the moment. The best bet is look at the live observation map and you'll see where temperatures are roughly reading, if anything looks a bit wild and out of place then it's probably reading incorrectly.

Cheers
Aaron

Thank you, Aaron. It is

Thank you, Aaron. It is chilly, windy and wet down here now. A good afternoon for a cuppa and a good book.....and a rug up. Lol

Hi. How much rain do you

Hi. How much rain do you see invercargill getting next few days, I see sat night Sunday looks promising? Getting dry.

The next few days are just

The next few days are just the odd shower which probably won't do much, you are right Sunday looks more promising with atleast 5 to 10mm proged, 15mm perhaps if you're lucky.

Gloomy in Akl

Hi Guys - HNY to you, The morning clouds don’t seem to be breaking in the afternoon as forecast - do you think this will be changing over the next week? Would be nice to see the grey disappear! Cheers

HNY to you too! :) There's

HNY to you too! :)

There's some sun breaking through, I can see bits of blue

It was never going to be a totally sunny afternoon or anything like that, just cloud breaking to "some" sun.

It should improve a little further for the remainder of this afternoon.

Tomorrow sees a similar pattern although hopefully it'll be brighter in the afternoon then it has been today. Thursday and Friday look to have areas of cloud but some sun at times. Saturday may be a bit brighter again. Not a totally sunny week but yeah, tomorrow afternoon will hopefully be better for you.

Cheers

Thanks A.C! :D Much

Thanks A.C! :D

Much appreciated by the team, you have a great new years and great 2019 :)

Abel Tasman

Hi, We are planning a Kayaking trip to Abel Tasman for three days from the 15th January. When I looked at the 14 day forecasts they all seem to predict a big drop in temperatures from the 11th. Is this an indication of bad weather coming in? Should I be concerned? Thanks Kaz

Hello there That's half a

Hello there

That's half a month away basically, I can't really give you any useful information at this point in time as to what is going to happen then. The longest of the long range maps show a pattern alternating between anticyclones and then fronts moving through from the west / southwest. The exact timing of these fronts I can't tell you at the moment. As for temperatures perhaps alternating between periods of cool then warm, once again that's very vague and nothing specific.

Have a good holiday, feel free to come back and ask 5 to 7 days out, might have a better idea then.

Cheers
Aaron

Daughter’s 21st on Jan 12th

Hey team, Any chance of a weather forecast for the 12th Jan? My daughter is having her 21st that day/night at our place out by Port Waikato and would prefer to have the people outside

Hi there That's probably a

Hi there

That's probably a bit too far out for me to tell you anything of use at the moment, current indications are there may be some rain around then but that will likely change in model information as the 12th draws nearer. How that will change I'm not sure, it could end up being dry, it could be that rain arrives early on that day but clears by evening, or it could be dry then rain arrives in the evening. It's a bit futile at this point unfortunately.

Come back and ask closer to the time if you like otherwise I hope your daughters party goes well! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Thank you

Thanks heaps Aaron, I thought it might be a bit far off, will check in closer to the date. Happy New Year

Perhaps early January, but at this stage it's staying away from New Zealand way up in the tropics.

Is there the possibilty of any exciting weather in CHCH in the future (i.e Thunderstorms, heavy rain, extreme heat, extreme wind).

Hi there By the looks of

Hi there

By the looks of things nothing too extreme apart from temperatures, they may be quite warm from tomorrow perhaps getting into the late twenties or early thirties if conditions suit.

Raglan this weekend

Hi We were thinking of popping down to Raglan from Friday through to Sunday - is the the weather due to improve much do you think? Thanks Des

Hi there Friday looks mostly

Hi there

Friday looks mostly sunny, just watch for the risk of an isolated shower late afternoon / evening.

Saturday sees slightly cloudier skies, some sun still about at times though. Once again an isolated shower or two possible mainly late afternoon / evening.

Sunday sees a mix of sun and cloud, mainly dry with westerlies at this stage.

So it's an improvement over what we have currently that's for sure. Still could be a pesky shower or two about however.

Cheers
Aaron

Thunder

Thunder heard over the Waitakere ranges just after 12:40. Hopefully not a sign of things to come over the next few days. Phil, Aaron and the rest of the WW team, have a great Christmas and New Year. You guys do an incredible job!

Thankyou very much! You have

Thankyou very much!

You have a great Christmas and New Year's too. Could be some thunder Xmas afternoon, but you never know the nature of thunderstorms are they are often quite isolated so no garantuees you will get them, we'll see.

Cheers
Aaron, Phil and WW Team

Grateful Thanks.

To Philip,Aaron and rest of the Staff. My grateful thanks for your continued very professional service presented to us daily during this year. The subject of weather in itself is fascinating and you present it in a way that captures our interest and we are part of it. How do you see the Cyclone Season for New Zealand for next year? And I see that the remnants of Owen still around. Hope your enjoy your break and blessings to you and yours. Regards Pastor Barrie Salvation Army

Hi any good weather for

Hi any good weather for fishing this weekend in Auckland

Hi there Saturday morning

Hi there

Saturday morning looks good, perhaps into the afternoon for a time but late afternoon expect rain to move in.

Sunday sees morning showers clear then a mix of sun and cloud for the rest of the day with southwesterly winds.

Winds are lighter overall on Saturday, a little breezier on Sunday but nothing strong. Temperatures on Sunday may reach into the mid twenties, high's on Saturday will be in the low twenties.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Where is Summer

Will we ever get Summer in Chch ?

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.

Onwards and upwards :)

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 :)
Phil D

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
