Are any tropical lows

Are any tropical lows forecast to pass over New Zealand in the next few weeks?

The 10th / 11th February

The 10th / 11th February could be a time to keep an eye on, a tropical low is forecast to come down but it's to the east of New Zealand. So nothing impacing New Zealand at this stage but if there were a chance it might be around then.

Cheers
Aaron

Sailing Weather

I'm cruising out of Auckland on the 11th, heading down the east coast. How bad's the weather going to be for sailing. I assume with all those lows lining up North, its going to be a bumpy ride?

Depending how close or far a

Depending how close or far a tropical low that is moving down offshore east of New Zealand around then will determine if the weather is going to be bad or good. It could be fairly good weather actually if the low passes too far to the east. But one thing may be a fairly good swell could be pumping through even if the weather is good.

Keep an eye on our maps page to see what the weather / swells may be coming up.

Chch today

Hi..is there likely​ any dirty stuff..ie hail thunder etc coming through with southerly today..? Cheers.

G'day thereNo not today,

G'day there

No not today, upper level dynamics (cold air) is lagging too far to the south so the surface southerly does't have very good upper level support to create thunderstorms.

Some rain is likely for a time :)

Sat 9th Feb

Hi We have a party planned for my Dad's 70th, in Snells Beach, just out of Warkworth. Its due to start at 3.00 pm what is the weather looking like for that for that afternoon? or should we sort out some tarps Thanks Kelly

Hi there Looks like a mix of

Hi there

Looks like a mix of sun and cloud, but also an isolated shower or two possible at times. No heavy downpours at this stage, just a few showers now and then. Mind you this is over a week away so things could change between now and then, we'll see.

Hope the party goes well! :)

Cooler night ahead

How wonderful - did you hear the collective sigh in Auckland? Thaks for your fab work guys!

Coastal Weather inaccuracy

Hi again....just done a trip to Bay of Islands in a yacht ,over a fortnight.Noticed that forecasting over VHF was somewhat inaccurate. Monday Jan 28 forecast Brett,poor knights Bream head was SW 10 backing SE 10. By mid-afternoon we were getting 20 -25 from SW as we got out towards Little Barrier. Nowcasting stations constantly seem to over report. Channel Is. Jan 29 around midday reporting around 15 when it was calm. Per my last query whats up,...is this deliberate. My forecasting is take your pick by going out and having a look. Being an old rooster I remember the days of the lighthouse keepers and their very accurate reports !

Hi there, very interesting

Hi there, very interesting you should write and share that with us. Since the Government announced recently they are ignoring the MBIE review and will not free up tax funded data the private sector has rallied around us and we have someone very keen to help us build a new marine app for New Zealanders. We have no idea why the Government run VHF forecasts are so shocking but we've heard from many boaties over the years they find it quite a poor service. So watch this space, we hope to have something up and running within a year.

Kind regards and bring back the lighthouse keepers and local weather watchers!
Cheers

Coastal Forecast Inaccuracy

Thanks for that info. I wonder how a taxpayer funded service cannot be public ? An enquiry to the Ombudsman may be interesting given that the weather is surely in the National interest. Meanwhile it will be great if your project eventuates. May even include Lighthouse keeper type observers !

Friday 8th Whangarei

I generally use your forecasts as I think when it comes to rain you are less likely to predict it...case in point is next Friday (yes I know it's way out) but metservice predict RAIN and you guys "partly cloudy" ....I'll go with you

Hi there Could be different

Hi there

Could be different modeling. If you check out our rain maps here:

https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

Then go to the 8th, you'll see that at this stage an anticyclone is keeping conditions dry for Whangarei. The low in the tropics to the north could be something to keep an eye on though as Phil has mentioned recently.

Cheers
Aaron

localized temp readings

Just found your site and great that you have localized temp readings.Gives much more accurate data. Im in Waikanae garden area although you do seem to have some temp equipment in area, if you ever need another reading/site from here id be very happy to assist. Great site and im not going back to met service

lightning trackers

how come your 2 lightning trackers have lightning dots shown at different places. the first one shows a whole bunch to the west of south island and the other one shows lightning spreadout around the country. why?

I would go by the one that

I would go by the one that shows the strikes out to the west, that has the best data of the two. These trackers are run by hobbiests mostly and are not dead accurate, they are just to give an idea that there may be some lightning activity out there.

This site here shows fairly accurate lightning information when storms are strong however: http://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/world/new-zealand

Cheers
Aaron

Wooo Hoooo

YASSSSS.....it's 31 degrees in Dunedin!!! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!! Time to hit the BEACH!!!! Thanks WW Team. N o complaints here AC

That's great!! Enjoy it,

That's great!! Enjoy it, tomorrow looks good too but Friday and next week aren't too flash heat wise (should improve after that though). Cheers for the friendly comment!

Confusing and conflicting predictions

In the midst of the hotter spell, it seems that every weather site predicts slightly different highs and lows. I guess some of this is due to some sites being offshore and therefore their data may be less accurate? I know we're hot here, based on my very scientific approach in gauging my own energy levels ( ha ha). Which site, in your opinion gives the most accurate and up to date information? An example of this confusion is that today's predictions for Kawerau are saying cloudy. Hmm, not really happening. Thank you for any comment you may have on this. I follow this site the most as your answers to people's queries are easily understood.

Hi there, we all use similar

Hi there, we all use similar data but we all crunch it in different ways and some are more accurate and others are less so. However all forecasters say they are the most accurate just like all restaurants say they have the best food, so it's really down to the public to work out which one disappoints them the least. :) I don't know which website/forecaster you're looking at but we're forecasting Mostly Sunny for Kawerau today: hwww.weatherwatch.co.nz/location/Kawerau. As of 4:28pm It's currently 30 degrees, 1 degree above our forecast high of 29. So perhaps just try using us :)

Cheers and all the best,
Phil D

Thanks for the comments Phil.

Thanks for the comments Phil. If you guys locate any rain clouds out there, send them our way overnight. Much appreciated.

what is the heat for the rest of the heat wave

is going to be hot for Auckland for the rest of the heatwave?

Feel free to check out our

Feel free to check out our Auckland forecasts, there you will see daytime highs for the next 10 days :)

Cheers
Aaron

ok

OK I saw your latest video. the heat wave will go away on Friday and a front may come through. is that right?

Hi there, yes for the most

Hi there, yes for the most part - especially the further south you live. Friday cools down in the south (some by over 12 degrees!), the lower North Island cools down on Saturday (Hawke's Bay will probably notice it the most with an over 15 degree drop for some compared to Monday this week!), then those in the upper half of the North Island cool down just a couple or few degrees on either Saturday or Sunday. Nothing major but should be a little less stifling. 

Cheers

bottom lighning tracker

bottom lightning tracker says that there has been lightning strikes around east and south Auckland. will this effect Pakuranga? I hear low rumbles of thunder.

Don't think there has been

Don't think there has been any lightning / thunderstorms near Auckland tonight, must have been something else you heard perhaps?

Cheers
Aaron

hearing thunder

I am in Pakuranga Auckland and I have been hearing low rumbles of thunder and I checked on the lightning tracker and the bottom one said 11 strikes south east of Auckland. could that be hitting Auckland? are heat waves nateral disasters? when will this heat wave last for?

Hi there Don't think there

Hi there

Don't think there has been any lightning / storms near Auckland tonight, must be something else?

If a heatwave was long enough perhaps it could turn it something serious.

waitangi day

will it be raining on Waitangi day? or sunny?

It may be fairly dry across

It may be fairly dry across New Zealand then, but depending where you are there could be the chance of a few showers.

hastings coolest temp was 33 oC

Hastings was 33oC . Tutira was 41oC . both are inland. I presume this is day one of the hot spell . how high is danger ?

Hi there, we don't think 41C

Hi there, we don't think 41C sounds accurate based on readings we saw all over Hawke's Bay and Central Plateau today. MetService insists 35 was the high we believe 37 (and we saw many much higher but believe they weren't calibrated properly, it just wasn't the set up for the North Island to hit 41).

Hastings went over 33, we had 34 there and 35 in Havlock North and 37 in Taradale. MetService reported 36 on their site but didn't include in their overall public figures for some reason. NIWA will have another set of temperatures too by the way, as they now compete commercial against MetService and therefore don't use the same database - NZ the only country on earth to have two official weather records! #Confusing. 

Cheers

WW

tutira. waikoau rd. hawke's bay

recorded as on facebook also 41oC . reliable source.

Chch

Excuse the ignorance..but how can there be 47% chance of rain..and it's 32° here.. explain please..thanks

Hi there, that's a fair

Hi there, that's a fair question! It's due to the rain falling near the western boundary of Canterbury over on the West Coast. There was a fair bit of humidity around Christchurch this morning so had the heat not kicked in there was a chance of maybe some drizzle or a spit or two. With the heat and sun now out that looks less likely, but humidity levels are around 50% which isn't super dry for Canterbury. 

Hope that helps :)
Cheers
WW

we getting light rain

its light rain in Auckland at the moment. when will it clear up for it being Auckland anniversary. these cloudy days are blocking the heatwave.

Hi there, see the story we've

Hi there, see the story we've just put up on the homepage about Auckland. There's also a little bit of drizzle this morning due to the thick cloud cover and warm humid conditions. Hopefully a few sunny spells develop today. Tomorrow looks warmer by a few degrees too. Auckland isn't normally impacted by heatwaves unless there is a big nor'west wind flow from the Australian desert straight to here - which isn't the set up this week. There's too much coastal water around Auckland to let it heat up like other parts of the country. 

Cheers

WW

lightning bottom of sth island

I checked the lightning tracker and it shows that there has been lightning striking to the west to the bottom of the south island will that hit? will it block heat wave

Well the West Coast of the

Well the West Coast of the South Island may well get some lightning, and perhaps some inland North Island areas south of Auckland mid week. But Auckland itself is not looking very lightning active coming up.

The West Coast of the South Island won't be as hot, still looking hot for eastern parts of the country this coming week.

Cheers
Aaron

will the be some?

but is there gonna be thunderstorms for Auckland ?

Hi Ah I just indicated above

Hi

Ah I just indicated above that lightning (meaning thunderstorms) is not looking very likely for Auckland this coming week.

Hope that helps! :)

Cheers
Aaron

thanks

ok thanks I just wanted to know. since school is starting back up.

heatwave

is there a heatwave coming? how hot is it for east Auckland

Temperatures in Auckland are

Temperatures in Auckland are often moderated a bit by the surrounding bodies of water either side despite heatwaves etc, in saying that high's are looking to mostly be in the mid twenties this coming week for Auckland, perhaps high twenties on Tuesday.

Cheers
Aaron
