Barometric pressure reading influenced by altitude?

Flick from Queenstown 310 m asl, to Dunedin (sea level?) on a given day Pressure (Q) is 1012 hpa and (D) is 1008 hpa I expected to see Queenstown lower due to its higher elevation; about 1 hpa per 8 metre; I wonder if Queenstown ever has 1012 hpa barometric pressure, as reported on this site? Graham

Hi Graham I would have

Hi Graham

I would have expected Queenstown to be lower in pressure also most of the time, perhaps a particular station you were looking at may not be calibrated correctly?

Then again from memory stations higher up in elevation should be calibrated to act as if they were at sea level so there could well have been a sea level reading difference of 4 hpa between Dunedin and Queenstown on that particular day.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

Barometric pressure reading influenced by altitude?

Hi Aaron A very helpful answer; many thanks, I was not aware of a convention for non sea level stations reporting with a local height correction factor. It makes good sense. I've seen barometers in mountaineer huts; if you can't tell whether the reading is high or low for the station, you can still see whether the glass is rising or falling, which has its uses. cheers Graham

light

How many minutes of light have we gained since the shortest day .

Hi thereSunset for

Hi there

Sunset for Wellington NZ on the 22nd June 2019 was 4.59pm, this is the date for NZ's shortest day.

Sunset for Wellington NZ on the 22nd July 2019 is 5:16pm.

So we will have gained an extra 17 minutes of light at sunset today since NZ's shortest day! :)

auckland thunder

I heard some thunder here in auckland today. which was unexpectedly? will there be more?

Hi there, a couple of

Hi there, a couple of isolated thunderstorms in the upper North Island this afternoon as the mild sub-tropical northerly turned cooler westerly. It will be cooler tonight and into the weekend so thunderstorms are less likely although some more heavy downpours are possible.

Cheers
WW

Is it

Is it gonna be pretty dry atleast for christchurch in the city for wednesday, and is it possible it will clear up thankyou

Hi there, not sure if you

Hi there, not sure if you mean today or next Wednesday. Today's rain is moving in now and the afternoon looks wet. Next Wednesday looks much better. The rain today clears away this evening.

Cheers

WW

Will it be sunny tomorrow for christchurch on 18th july, and how bad will it rain because ill be walking in the city and im just confused Thankyou

Hi there Thursday looks to be

Hi there

Thursday looks to be a dry day for Christchurch :)

Last night Auckland

Hi last night the warning for Auckland was strong winds gusting 90km with possible thunderstorms but nothing really happened thankyou

Hi there, yes MetService

Hi there, yes MetService provides warnings which taxpayers fund. WW completely ignores these warnings due to the failure rate of accuracy and was why Civil Defence in Auckland hired our services for several years to reduce their false alarms. Sadly, we're back to the original problem of near continuous false alarms with absolutely no accountability.

Cheers

auckland rain

will the rain be thundery tommorow cause metservice has put a moderate risk

Hi there Please see a

Hi there

Please see a responce we made to a question just below, this covers Auckland also. Actual lightning / thunder is probably a touch lower risk wise in our estimation.

WW

ok thanks

thanks. Im sorry if that bothered you but i see that westerly is making the air unstable

It's ok, just thought our

It's ok, just thought our responce to a question below would help :)

Tuesday

Is tomorrow gonna be thundery?

Hi there If you could let us

Hi there

If you could let us know your location that would help in letting us find out what you need to know.

I'm assuming you are talking about for the western North Island, after a period of heavy morning rain afternoon showers could be briefly heavy / thundery with hail then overnight western parts of the North Island get another band of heavy showers with possible thunder / hail, especially Taranaki.

Cheers
Aaron

tonight

Is tonight gonna be thundery showers. will the showers be heavy?

Showers pushing through at

Showers pushing through at times tonight may be briefly heavy, thunder looks to be a low chance of happening.

WW

Thunderstorms

Hi I want to know how severe are the thunderstorms for Auckland on Sunday

G'day there, a period of

G'day there, a period of heavy rain around midday may bring some thunder but late afternoon / evening the chance of thunder increases a touch. Any thunderstorms later in the day will likely have hail and short / sharp squally showers. Typical NZ thunderstorms really for winter / the western side of NZ.

Hope that helps!

Cheers
Aaron

tornado

Hi I just watched footage on nz herald of the new Plymouth tornado yesterday. you could see it even though it was in a distance. you could still see it. will there be more tornadoes. in the upcoming days?

Hi there, the weather we have

Hi there, the weather we have at the moment is a little spring-like, which means we'll see warm and colder air collide and that can lead to isolated thunderstorms and even isolated tornadoes. But they are VERY isolated along NZ's entire western coastline so not a high risk of concern but some low risk for a repeat performance (but more than likely will happen at sea or over a remote part of NZ). 

Cheers
WW

Thanks

thanks alot. taranaki is new zealands own tornado alley inst it?

No worries and yes Taranaki

No worries and yes Taranaki is a bit! Also so is the West Coast however being so large and remote we don't hear about most of the ones that hit there.

Cheers :)
WW

is auckland expecting thunder

are we going to get thunder anytime soon? im waiting for another storm.

Hi thereCheck out our

Hi there

Check out our Auckland forecast, it's just been updated and shows a few chances coming up, Friday and Sunday at this stage :)

Cheers

Hi

Hey there apparently there is a chance of a cold snap middle stages of july possible snow to low levels?.

Hi there, yes there is the

Hi there, yes there is the chance of a cold snap early next week, short lived and mostly in the southern half of the South Island. We're actually right now putting a story together about it so look in our news feed before noon :)

Cheers

Smog

I don't think you guys do, but would you guys consider adding when there's the potential for smog, to your winter forecasts (for say evening and morning walkers/runners etc). In Glen Eden looking southwest towards the Waitakeres, there is already some smog forming just before sunset (I'm guessing because there is virtually no wind, the smoke from everyones chimneys is just sitting there) and the smell is quite strong. You guys do an amazing job, Keep up the good work!

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the supportive message and for the idea! Yes noticed that smog yesterday - the precursor to the fog we have this morning. We have actually built a fog forecaster we are trialling and in theory it could have smog attached to it. The issue in NZ is that the Government really loves to limit how much data is out there (unlike ALL other first world nations) - so because the Government makes NIWA and MetService agencies heavily commercial it means WW can't access tax funded/owned data to make products like this. So WW not only has to pay the Govt taxes for data we then cannot use, but we also have to heavily pay for data offshore just to be able to run our company!  So it's a little complicated but we are getting there - we hope to have a fog (and maybe someday smog) forecasters out in the near future though :)

Cheers!

Rain records

Hi How do I find out what the rainfall level was on a particular day

Hi there, unfortunately we

Hi there, unfortunately we cannot freely share tax funded data due to MetService and NIWA's own commercial priorities - we get legal threats from these Government Agencies if we try to share tax funded data. So you'll need to contact either of them directly. NZ is the only country in the world to operate this way, hugely limiting how we can help with simple requests like this. 

Kind regards
WW

Winter

Where is winter.. it’s kinda scary how warm this winter has been. Really havnt felt the cold at all this year in Auckland..This surely can’t be normal or a good thing..

Hi there, very good question.

Hi there, very good question. The daytime highs are especially above normal and we have even warmer than normal weather coming in the weeks ahead. In Auckland many people notice spring conditions in early August so there isn't much time left for winter to 'do its thing'. In saying that, it was mid August 2011 when we had a nationwide Antarctic blast that brought snow into Auckland and Northland - so we can never rule out a major blast, but as for daily conditions winter is definitely spluttering this year here.

Cheers

I’ve still got tomato plants

I’ve still got tomato plants in the garden in perfect health..Hasn’t been cold enough to kill them even

Just stop it happening...

I have moved 500km away from where I lived in Pukekohe to Palmerston North and can easily find the City weather forecast but can't for the life of me stop the site opening below that to Pukekohe. I have tried everything! Thanks. Di

Hi Di! Are you talking about

Hi Di! Are you talking about your desktop computer or mobile device? Sounds like you may have a caching problem (it's trying to auto remember where you live). You may need to clear your cache to reset. We're overhauling the site in spring which will fix some of these bugs. Hopefully that works for you. Let us know if it doesn't!

Past data history

Hi, I was wondering if you have a section where we can look up past weather history. I wanted to see what the strength of the wind was for yesterday here in Hampden on: wednesday 3rd night /thursday 4th early morning . It seemed extreme! The closest place is Oamaru where I can find that it is recorded on another site but it would have be a different strength here. Thanks Michelle

Hi Michelle That is something

Hi Michelle

That is something you will have to contact Metservice or NIWA about as they hold that type of information. Good luck! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Weather station data

Hi guys.PWS ITAURANG51 observed at 7.39am saying it's 37deg.The last 3 day's high temps have been incorrect.Cheers Deano .

Morning Deano, as nice as 37

Morning Deano, as nice as 37 degrees might be for some it is clerly wrong! :) We've removed it for now - so it should automatically transfer to another nearby station today for you.  Thanks for the update.

Tekapo

Hey - I really hate how no station has Tekapo as a weather forecast destination, despite the weather balloon being there. It is always linked to Twizel or Timaru, both at lower altitudes. We travel to Tekapo every July and I am across all weather sites for weeks in advance but I still end up doing my own weather analysis of various maps. Comment???

Hi there, you'd need to ask

Hi there, you'd need to ask MetService about this as we're only a free service but they are the tax funded weather service for Government. We have tried to get a few local ones in that area on our observations page - but the lack of population there would be the main driver for not too much data - in saying that, heavily touristy so makes sense for more focus. Thanks for the message - we're improving the quality of forecasts around NZ and we do have specific 10 day forecasts for Tekapo you may find helpful and accurate.

Cheers
WW

Opinion please

Hi..given it is winter..it will get wet at some stage..(yes/no?)..at what point is any long range forecast predicting this.. thanks again for your excellent service..

Great question - at this

Great question - at this stage high pressure looks to dominate the start of the month so perhaps more of the same for at least the next 14 to 21 days. A lot of high pressure systems still extending from Australia. 

Cheers

Warm July weather in Auckland

Hi there, Just wondering if you can tell me why we're having such warm weather in Auckland with overnight lows of 12 degrees. Thanks!

A subtropical northerly

A subtropical northerly airflow is being directed over New Zealand at the moment hence the warm nights, it will eventually change later this week with the direction changing to the south. Won't be as warm then!

Cheers
Aaron
