That is 10 days out so

That is 10 days out so nothing concrete can be said at this stage. Best to ask in about 4 days time.

However with long range models they are hinting at an easterly airflow around the top of the North Island like it is now, although there are suggestions of more cloud about and even the chance of the odd shower although they may affect Coromandel and Northland more.

Still, better to come and check back a little down the track as it's too early at this stage to say much.

cooks beach

Off camping next week at cooks beach. Is it going to be a wash out or worth sticking to the plan. Many thanks

There looks to be an easterly

There looks to be an easterly airflow once again for most of next week for the upper North Island travelling around a high that will be slowly moving from west to east across the South Island.

It probably wont be a wash out, however being out there exposed to the east there could be the odd shower from time to time but overall conditions may be mostly dry with cloudy areas, perhaps some sun too. Easterly breezes may be a little pesky perhaps, not majorly strong or anything but not letting up kinda thing.

Feel free to use the interactive "maps" and have a look. The rain map is what you want to use.

Cheers

Sunday 3rd

We are hoping to have a b'day party at Cornwallis beach on Sunday morning...maybe around 10am. Any chance it'll be dry?

Thanks!

Feb 3

Hi there

At this stage a few cloudy areas and some sunshine seem to be the case. An outside chance of a shower but you'd have to be pretty unlucky if it takes place in the morning.

have a great day on Sunday!

Cheers

WW

Please don't groan......

I know it is a distance off and you really dislike doing this but...........getting married on the 17th Feb hopefully outdoors in gorgeous gardens. Weather permitting of course.

So, rough guess what may be in store gang? :-)

Thanks

James

Feb 17

Hi James

To be honest it is a little far out but it seems Auckland is moving into a more unsettled phase during parts of the month.
We're hoping it won't spoil your day but please get in touch in about a week or so and we could help you out further.

Cheers

weather on 12 jan 2013

Hi I was just wondering if you could tell me what the temperature was on 12 jan 2013 (our wedding day) in auckland (we were in Devonport specifically) at around 2-3pm.
Thanks
Alexis

Hi there Looks like 2pm was

Hi there

Looks like 2pm was 25 degrees and 3pm was 26 degrees. Looked to be a quite humid day with dewpoints of 20 degrees!

The wind

Hi

It's Auckland Anniversary Day today! And it would be great to have a picnic on the beach (east coast). Is the wind going to die down today or will it be blustery like the weekend has been? Th wind is driving me nuts haha!

Thanks heaps

Beaches

Hi there,

It looks like the easterly will continue to be breezy especially in the east.Piha or Muriwai beaches could be a little more sheltered perhaps.

Good luck!

Cheers

9/2/13

Hi,

What do you predict the weather will do on the 9th February?
We are getting married on this day in Auckland:)
Other websites predict showers :/
Thanks

wedding

Thanks for your query.

At this stage it's a little far out to give you an accurate picture.
Please contact us again this weekend.

Thanks

WW

humidity

I don't recall having a long period of low humidity in Auckland this month. Is this normal for Auckland?

Thanks for your query.

NIWA should have those statistics you are looking for.

Bad weather

Is it possible that the weather thats hitting australia right now will come here.

Australia

 Hi there

At this point it's not expected to move over NZ however some cloud and showery activity could hit the far north later this week, 

Thanks for getting in touch.

cloudy cap over Auckland

cloudy cap of cobblestone like clouds over Auckland, moon shines brightly as do stars in between gaps. There has even been a halo around moon tonight.

Rain? When?

When are we going to get any decent rain in Auckland?
14 day forecast looks dry and the garden is dying.

I'm not sure there Guest.

I'm not sure there Guest. Models look fairly dry a fair way out as you note.

Hopefully something develops rain wise at some point.

Cheers
Aaron

Mostly cloudy

Mostly cloudy skies in West Auckland and Auckland City/

Is it possible

to get 2 highs without a front in between them? I'm not sure I've ever seen this.

Not something I've ever been

Not something I've ever been looking for but it would sound right that there is always a form of front between two high's due to the converging winds.

These fronts often turn into stationary fronts and this seems to be the case for tomorrow as it is left hanging out in the Tasman.

Breezy easterlies

Hi guys, any rough estimate on the average wind speed for this coming weekend? Looking to go boating and 'breezy easterlies' conjures up images of whitecaps and uncomfortable conditions for the 'crew' :-)
Cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark The forecasts above

Hi Mark

The forecasts above are mainly to do with the city itself, not the harbour. Your best to look at Metservices marine forecasts for official guidlines on boating weather etc.

However your conjourings would be right. Wind speeds out on the harbour will be averaging 15 to 20 knots but may gust 25 to 30 at times which is fairly strong. Sunday add another 5 knots to those estimates. So white caps look fairly likely.

Cheers
Aaron

Thanks

Thanks Aaron, I'll let the 'first mate' know what she can expect! Cheers, Mark.

Honestly...u do wat u do better than metservice dont do... refreshing

Thanks for the positive note

Lights in the sky

Did anyone see the strange orange lights in the sky last night in browns bay?

the sunset?

the sunset?

wind or breezes

Hi Guys - can you please explain the difference between light wind and breezes. Over the weekend you forecast breezes, which we would have thought was wind, as it was quite strong and blustery? Thanks

Hi there At WeatherWatch we

Hi there

At WeatherWatch we try to use language that most of us would use in every day life, as our forecasts are for the everyday person going about usual tasks (so not counting aviation and marine). If I were to say, "there's a northeasterly breeze out there". 95% of people would generally (I hope!) be able to understand that it doesn't mean a gale is blowing, it isn't calm weather. It's just a bit of a breeze from the northeast.

If the winds are clearly going to be more then just a bit of a breeze we will start to use brisk, gusty etc. Then you move up to strong and above that gale.

Light winds technically speaking are between about 6 and 11 kph. A standard breeze as we would put it would be winds between 17 and 25 kph.

Cheers
Aaron

Hey WW will this cloud clear?

Hey WW will this cloud clear? Its pretty overcast in Auckland..

Cloud

It's threatening to clear! Different layers this morning but hopefully brighter this afternoon.

Raglan next weekend

Hi, heading down to Raglan for some wind sports on the 26th Jan. how will the easterly flow effect the weather there? Will we likely see a sea breeze still kick in or will cloud cover build from the land?
Thanks
BGW

Raglan being on the West

Raglan being on the West Coast, it will be more sheltered from the easterly airflow moving around the high that is looking to be to the east of the South Island at the time, so light winds could be expected with the potential for an afternoon sea breeze. You say, "still kick in" so I presume you have looked into this already or asked the question before?

Some slight cooling in the upper atmosphere relative to afternoon surface temperatures means a little bit of cloud may build up in the afternoon and push over from inland as you suggest.

But still, 6 days is a little bit of a while away to be worrying about minor things like a little bit of cloud cover and sea breezes. That would be something perhaps a forecaster may worry about closer to the day in question (2 or 3 days out). That far out the focus is more on the general "big picture". Is there a major front moving over the area at the time or will conditions be settled?

My forecast would be. "Moslty sunny weather with light winds". Pin pointing sea breezes and some cloud cover is a bit early to speculate on at this point in time I'm thinking.

Cheers
Aaron

Humidity

Hi there I was just wondering why your humidity reading of 69% for Auckland is so different from the metservice reading of 97% humidity. As soon as I walked outside this morning I knew it was extremely high.

Cameron

Hi Cameron - ours is a

Hi Cameron - ours is a predictive reading and during the day the humidity tends to drop into the 60sor 70s, especially in the afternoon.  However with the high cloud cover the 90% reading is accurate - and the odd drizzle patch.  As of 11:57am humidity was 86% in the city and 90% at the airport.  We've lifted our overall reading to 80% but the humidity will ease this afternoon back to lower levels - it's just taking a few hours longer than we thought.

Cheers

- WW

4pm Edit - Humidity fell as expected with that sou'west change.  Has been 50 to 65% across the city this afternoon.  Cheers, Phil

Holiday

Hey WW,

A group of us are going to Whangapoua north of Whitianga in the Coromandel from the 22nd to the 27th of Jan. Could you please give me an idea of the weather for then? Should I pack togs and a beach umbrella or trackies and a wind breaker?

Thanks so much guys!

Hi there - the week ahead is

Hi there - the week ahead is looking pretty good, especially hot tomorrow, Sunday.  However around the 21st/22nd the wind swings around to the east or north east - that brings in a bit of cloud and a breezy wind at times off the sea. But the week looks dry - slight risk of a shower next weekend.  Have a great week - pack plenty of suntan lotion!

- Phil

Oh thanks so much Phil.

Oh thanks so much Phil. Sounds pretty good to me, I don't mind the easterly at all as its a warm wind! You're fantastic :)

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
Aaron

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!

- Phil

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 :)
