Is summer coming soon?

Hi there just a question of when the winds are going to drop off if they are and when to expect a a steadying weather pattern as at the mo the wind and rain seem relentless. Any info would be very handy thankyou

Summer is coming December 1st

Summer is coming December 1st :)

But there may be some settled weather coming at the very end of this month / early November due to an anticyclone. But we'll have to wait and see!

Keep an eye on our rain maps to monitor up coming weather https://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/forecast-maps/rain

winter weather only 6 weeks to christmass

Good afternoon from Paul from Papatoetoe regarding our free evening guy faulks evening As stated 3000 children I am sick of the cold brrrh Can we have a brighter prediction thursday 31 October for this free community even for kids as previously stated thought we had seen everything until this mornings storm Can I have a new heads for this massive undertaking . appreciate this great and friendly service

Hi Paul, next week's forecast

Hi Paul, next week's forecast isn't yet locked in. It looks like there may be a sub-tropical low that develops but high pressure further south will be the main controlling factor. So we may have to wait until Sunday or Monday to be able to truly lock in next Thursday. All the best - the collective will of everyone's positive thinking may help too!! 

Cheers

hail

ishail rare for auckland in october. cause it just hailed 3 times now

Hi there, yes hail in October

Hi there, yes hail in October is incredibly common. Hail is produced two ways in NZ. Either a major wintry snap where the air is so cold we get hail quite easily. Or, when things warm up - it makes for taller clouds that push higher up in the atmosphere turning raindrops to hail. That can then lead to isolated thunderstorms too. October is a high risk month for hail. In summer we get hail too, from warmth which generates even taller cloud build ups.

Cheers

Um it just thunderd here in

Um it just thunderd here in tuakau was that forecast?

Your right it has thundered

Your right it has thundered near you, no we didn't have it in although we did consider the possibility. Figured it may have been erring on the side of not having some thunder / lightning but obviously the weather has erred on the side of definitely having a few rumbles about.

Chch

Hi..is this southerly gonna miss us like yesterday..? Any fireworks predicted..? Looks like it's blowing itself to sea..regards

Main southerly isn't due till

Main southerly isn't due till around midnight, it looks much more likely to push through Chch then yesterday's front. May be a flicker of lightning but only a chance.

Cheers

tommorow

Taieri Gorge Rail

Hi team, Heading to Dunedin from Christchurch on Saturday and doing the Taieri Gorge rail trip what weather should expect? Thank you

G'day there Saturday looks to

G'day there

Saturday looks to actually be the best day of the week in Dunedin going by current guidance. Sunny areas and some high cloud, winds from the north may be a bit gusty at times. Warm with temperatures in the early twenties, perhaps an outside chance of mid twenties.

On Sunday it's dry at first then rain moves in by midday with southerlies.

Have a good trip! :)

Cheers
WW

auckland

will we get thunder in auckland again or will we have to wait till next year?

likewise a sunny calm day

Auckland a sunny calm clear day before the end of the year?

Should do, perhaps October

Should do, perhaps October 27th or maybe early November could see a calm day or two.

Cheers
Aaron

You will get thunder in

You will get thunder in Auckland again definitely, when exactly I'm not sure, hopefully before the end of the year for you! :)

WW

thanks

thanks alot. i enjoy thunderstorms and hate that sometimes when they forecast they dont happen : (

sunshine

our community church here in Manukau city has our annual free party as a alternative to goblins and witches to keep children from the trick and treat Its on the last day of October it has been 6 years now but the big question is will it be rain free we have seen everything pouring rain thunder storms can you give us a heads up its so exciting to see kids smiles and completely safe Thanks and we really appreciate your great friendly service Paul Manuku

G'day there Last day of

G'day there

Last day of October, that is a 11 days away now so anything I say now may not exactly work out by the time the 31st comes around.

Current models are showing a tropical low near by but a southeasterly airflow over Auckland. There could be some high cloud and the risk of a shower but mainly dry conditions, but depending on the movement of this low perhaps it may be raining. Perhaps best to come and ask 5 to 7 days out?

Hope your party goes well either way.

Thanks for the kind words :)

WW

Better weather

Hi I live in Auckland and just wondered if you have any idea when if ever we are going to get some decent weather for longer than 4 hours at a time. I know it's Spring BUT I am well and truly over the wind, rain and cloudy days. Please give me some good news. Thanks heaps

Hi there, we don't really

Hi there, we don't really have a lot of good weather coming up with a fair amount of cloudy of windy days. May not be overly wet though so there's one positive for you :) Hopefully November will see a quick improvement. We're entering a phase of westerly quarter winds now. Hopefully Sunday will be a little nicer than Saturday was though :)

Cheers

Nelson

Hi - is metservice hyping up the winds for Nelson on Friday?

Hi there, winds do ramp up

Hi there, winds do ramp up above gale force in parts of Nelson region on Friday - it may or may not be in the city itself but there are strong winds surrounding/affecting exposed parts of the region on Friday.

Cheers

WW

Hi there, with the next 2

Hi there, with the next 2 weeks looking quite dreary, is November looking any better?

Hi there, quite often in

Hi there, quite often in November the winds start to ease back (especially by the middle of the month) and we get longer, drier, periods of weather. November can be unsettled too, but usually October has more wintry hints while November has more summer-like hints. :)

Cheers
WW

120 wind gusts

Kai Iwi lakes

Hi there, Just wondering if you could give me forecast at the Kai Iwi lakes on the weekend of the 26th of October ? We're planning a camping trip and wondering if the weather will hold up. Cheers :) Liz

Kai Iwi weather

Always pays to have a Plan B if NZ weather is a factor.

Gday there That's 11 to 13

Gday there

That's 11 to 13 days away and with spring upon us that means changeable conditions. So anything I say now will likely change meaning it becomes a bit irrelevant.

In saying that current models look to show a high parked to the north and a westerly airflow over the upper North Island then. Perhaps a mix of sun and cloud with the low risk of the odd shower, later on Sunday has a higher risk of precipitation with a possible front closing in.

Hope your trip goes well either way.

WW

Thanks a bunch. I'll keep my

Thanks a bunch. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope the weather gods oblige !

Location

How to I change my automactic location?

Hi there, if you have cookies

Hi there, if you have cookies enabled your browser should remember the last location you selected when you click the down arrow to the left of the location name in the main forecast bar (see image below), however some people are reporting a bug with this and it later often defaulting to 'Auckland'. We are significantly upgrading things behind the scenes right now and we aim to have this bug properly fixed by December. In the meantime if it's still not working you could simply select your location and then bookmark that webpage for easy future reference.

Wind in Auckland overnight Monday

Hey team WW, I see the official government forecasters have a weather warning for 120km winds across Auckland overnight Monday but it looks like you don't think it will be so bad... what's the latest?

Hi there, we think gusts over

Hi there, we think gusts over 100km/h are possible on Monday night in exposed areas but the latest data shows the winds may tilt more SE towards evening and sometimes the Coromandel Peninsula ranges can 'soften the blow' for parts of Auckland in that set up. We'll provide a news and video update tomorrow morning on the set up too.

Cheers

Station ID

Hi, Cambridge (CAMB 18) still showing minus zero, where do I find the station ID to send to you?

Hi there, we have the ID now

Hi there, we have the ID now and we'll try to sort this today. Seems to be a bug in the system.

Thanks for letting us know :)

So much for accurate forecasts!

Early morning cloud, then sunny. 0% chance of rain! I guess the heavy cloud and rain we've got here in Mt. Roskill is a figment of my imagination. Since the tie-up with that bloody American company and their so-called 'super' computer, Weatherwatch's accuracy has taken a nosedive.

Hi there, actually the hourly

Hi there, actually the hourly chance of rain from IBM did show a chance of rain - and our video yesterday mentioned some areas may have cloud and a few showers remaining in the upper North Island. But yes today's forecast for much of the upper North Island could have been better, especially Auckland and Tauranga.  The super computer we use forecast the showers, they were just more widespread than we thought. Thanks for using our entirely free service when you tax fund both MetService and Niwa forecasts. We're always working to be more accurate.

Cheers

Severe weather

Hi there is there going to be any severe weather on Monday/Tuesday for auckland

Temperature...

Hi. 'Now in Whangarei' temperatures have been amusing lately - right now it's showing -37, sometimes as warm as 60 Not a biggy, 'Next 24 hours' is always accurate

Not showing correct temperature for Cambridge

Hi, minus zero showing from CAMBR 18.

Good morning, ouch it's

Good morning, ouch it's definitely not that cold today in Cambridge! :) We've blocked the station for now, but please let us know if it's still showing up. (If so, please ensure you send us the precise Station ID so we can easily locate it - we hope we've found the culprit here!)

Cheers
WW

Great service

I used metservice for years and always found looking out the window far more reliable. I now use weatherwatch and it's far better than metservice has ever been. Met service don't have anywhere near the amount of towns on their site. Rangioras weather is not the same as chch city as they seem to think it is. Thanks for a great job.
