Sunday?

Is Sunday having a bad rainfall throughout the day ??

Rain all day looks likely, heavy stuff should be afternoon only

 But the track and timing of Evan means everything.  It's only Tuesday and Evan has a long way to go.  So it's very difficult to nail down a detailed and accurate forecast that we can have a lot of confidence in.

But we will track Evan carefully and keep you updated

Cheers

Cyclone Evan

Hi Philip
What site is best to track the progress of this cyclone? Is there a map rather than just stellite imagery?
Cheers
Philip

Hi Philip, Well we'd say our

Hi Philip,

Well we'd say our site is the best! But in this part of the world it's very hard to find decent mapping, which is why we try to collate it all in one place.  Fiji Met Service provide some maps (which we usually display here).  JTWC is another source if you can find it and some big weather websites, like weather.com, may also have some maps and products available on it.

Cheers

Christmas Day forecast!!

Met service at this stage reckon is going to be overcast, possibly wet. I'm going with you guy! I'm hoping for a fine day in the Auckland region

Christmas Day Forecast?

Are you willing to put your reputation on the line yet :)

Way too early for a solid forecast

The further out we forecast, the more likely chances will need to be made by the time we get to the particular day.  It's like when someone estimates their travel time.  If someone is driving from Hamilton to Te Awamutu, they can "forecast" their time of arrival pretty accurately.

But, if someone drives from Whangarei to Wellington, they can make a preliminary estimate when they leave.  But will then likely have to adjust that time of arrival several times before you get there.

Right now Christmas Day looks pretty typical for Auckland.  Sunshine with afternoon clouds bubbling up and a slight chance for a few showers.  Highs will probably be in the mid 20s.

But be sure to check back with us as this is almost certainly going to need to be adjusted as new information becomes avaiable.

Cheers
WW 

Hi WW, The maps for the 25th

Hi WW,

The maps for the 25th of December show ex-tropical cyclone Evan right over the North Island. Is there a chance this may be the weather for Christmas day?

Regards from a worried Aucklander :(

Your seeing the same as I'm

Your seeing the same as I'm seeing, beyond this I have no further information :)

Is always a chance so something to be weary of but it is a long way off yet so may well change.

0% precip in Auckland????

I am up in the Waitaks and have an outdoor school show tonight. I was thinking things were pretty good but now I see raindrops on the windows!!! eeek! Make the drizzle go away please.

Will do our best. They may

Will do our best. They may well clear away later as the evening goes on.

Hopefully your school show pulls off ok fingers crossed!

Not very sunny here in Auckland WW. Pretty overcast to be honest and I'm not too sure if it will clear? :(

Has indeed stayed cloudy for most of the day. Even a few light showers or drizzle patches affecting western areas.

Things should improve from tomorrow :)

Beautiful Day Today

Stunner of a day today in West Auckland. Loving this summer sunshine. Looking forward to the awesome week of weather ahead.

Stunning starry night

Auckland skies are beautiful tonight. Was lovely having a magnificent sunny day today.

Great site!

You guys rock! best weather site in NZ.

Thanks for your kind words

Android / iPhone App

Hey guys, fantastic site. Just wondering, are there any plans in the pipeline to get a Android / iPhone app up and running. It would be a great compliment to this site, and a weather app concentrating only on New Zealand weather would be good.

Hi there There is a free app

Hi there

There is a free app in the works and on the way next year. Keep your eye's peeled :)

Stormy weather

What prospect of getting the heavy rain in South Auckland today. Sky is very dark here in Manukau City and heard a thunder clap a few mins ago but no rain yet.

Lightning displays

Been lightning South West of New Lynn and plenty of thunder. A few large drops of rain speckled the ground in North New Lynn.

Back to solid SW

Back to solid SW forecast,this will be worse than last summer....

Oh no

really?

Why are people so bloody

Why are people so bloody negative! its been 5 days of Summer so far!! Give it at least a couple of weeks. And its only a few days with SW and with that comes sunshine. Geeeeez!

Oh dear!

Thanks for the info on the wind - very interesting and explains why it's usually nicer here than Wgtn! (I'm from there!) Is it really going to be quite wet over the weekend? - the washing is piling up after a weekend away!

Hi thereNot sure what your

Hi there

Not sure what your looking at exactly regrading the weekend, this coming weeking in Auckland isn't looking too bad at this stage. Sunny areas and some cloud with southwesterly breezes generally.

Cheers
Aaron

10PM update:  Hi there, could be a remaining shower on Saturday (some fresh data) but it all depends on the incoming high.  If the high is as strong as the models suggest then it should push the showers away earlier - if it lags (which it sometimes does for Auckland, always a bit 50/50!) then we can get a few showers and a cloudier and windier day than anticipated.  Keep checking for updates - we'll certainly know by Thursday
- Phil

18 degrees in December! Argh

18 degrees in December! Argh :(

I suppose its a bit better than the one day last year we only got to 15 though!

Wind at Night

Hi Guys

I have recently taken up paddle boarding so I am taking an interest in what the wind is doing as lighter winds are always much more pleasant.

Why is it that that the wind often drops off significantly at night only to return again during the day. I understand the heating and cooling of the land would create sea breezes but I would have though the weather systems coming over our country would have much more of an influence and would remain steady overnight. Maybe it's just all in my head but it always seems to be calmer at night.

Your maps page is great by the way. I check them daily.

Hi there, thanks very much

Hi there, thanks very much for your email - and for the support of our site!

During the day the sun really does add a massive amount of energy to our atmosphere - small clouds can become severe thunderstorms, the temperature can rocket and - especially here in Auckland - the winds can pick up.  With such narrow land and so much sea it makes sense that we have a breeze most days.  The sun is pretty much firing things up as the earth spins - so when we have little cloud cover especially, the winds can get up and really become quite strong - then eases after sunset as the earth cools and the sea regulates our weather here in Auckland - helping to keep things as steady as possible.

Hope that helps!

Cheers

Phil

GEM OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

Yet another glorious Auckland spring/summer day...we must be the gem of the South Pacific!!!!

You must be in Hawaii looking

You must be in Hawaii looking at a picture card of the skytower :-)

WOULD HAVE TO BE SOMETHING LIKE THAT

We pay dearly for the occasional relatively fine day we are allotted.

LOL too funny!

LOL too funny!

Monday 10th Dec

What does it look like wind and weather wise for next monday. I have tried looking at your maps but they only seem to go up till Wednesday.

Thanks

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage we're expecting dry weather for Monday, a 30% chance of a few showers on Tuesday then settled for Wednesday.  Our maps should be working out for 2 weeks so hopefully next you check it's operational!

Cheers,

 We always knew Friday would

 We always knew Friday would be windy (had that in our prediction as early as Sunday) however the finer details of exactly how strong sometimes can't be worked out until much closer to the time.   A bit like showers - we can see them several days out sometimes, but sometimes only up until the day do we know how many there will be.

Coming down for holiday

Hi there, we are coming down to NZ for a 9 days holiday from Melbourne. The weather doesn't look that promising. But was wondering what clothes to pack up for my family of four.
With 19-21 temperature, Shorts and a top is too little or we need long pants and maybe a jacket?
I appropriate your feedback

 HI there The weather for the

 HI there

The weather for the first week of December looks unsettled with a mixture of warm and cold weather.  Week 2, however, looks settled and dry right across the country.  Highs will be between 17 and 22 for the most part nationwide, with the exception of some South Island areas which could have highs anywhere from 12 degrees to 30! (Bit more like Melbourne)

Cheers

Pack thermals and skiing

Pack thermals and skiing attire. The weather is awful. I personally would stay where you are and come over in couple of months when the temps will be slightly better.

WEATHER ADVICE

Leave it until winter...better chance of a fine day (if you're lucky vis-a-vis "right place, right time").
