From cloudy to almost clear skies

Amazing how quickly the clouds went away this afternoon. From rain laden clouds to almost clear sky. A beautiful golden sunset tonight!

FORECAST HAS SAID RAIN BUT NONE HAS COME

I live in Auckland and my garden is dry and am having to use a hose to water. Rain was forecast several times and then none. Frustrating as hoping for rain for garden.

After thursday keep your hose

After thursday keep your hose ready as it be anticyclonic a bit out.

We understand your

We understand your frustration - a few others are wanting rain also.  We haven't really be picking rain for this week, apart from Wednesday - although we did think during the weekend that some showers may arrive as early as Tuesday night - but clearly we've changed that to Wednesday afternoon/night now.  Incoming rain has potential to deliver a few heavy pockets of rain but generally speaking it doesn't pack much punch for the north.  After that, we may have several dry days.

Rain on Wednesday

Will the rain on Wednesday arrive in West Auckland in the morning or afternoon?

Hi there - at this stage the models are suggesting afternoon and evening.  Keep an eye on our forecasts though as this might speed up or slow down a few hours between now and then.

Blue sky surrounds Auckland

Not a cloud to be seen, a clear warm sunny morning.
Deafening song of cicadas is heard.

i knew it wouldnt last

the clouds are starting to drift in, they were little ones at first, but now theres a massive one out the window here in titirangi...

But that was an amazing morning, no clouds and a cool breeze. wish the whole day could be like that.

I've lived in Auckland for 12

I've lived in Auckland for 12 years and could count on one hand (not including my thumb!) how many 100% cloud free days Auckland has had in my time here.  Just part of the fact that Auckland is more like an island with water surrounding it!

Philip Duncan 

Though over 12 years

Though over 12 years ago,Easter 1992 was cloud free all 4 days or much of it.There are days at time in winter like this sometimes too though it gets cold early.

And when Auckland has a

And when Auckland has a cloudless day, it is a most beautiful thing. Im going to wait for this massive cloud to pass (it's still out the window) then ill treat the dog to a walk...

WOW...

...this is far better than we've had all Spring/Summer...five globs of sun with only varying degrees of precip. What price must we now pay the piper?

Bay of plenty

Hi Dear,

different weather forecast for bay of plenty over easter compared to other websites. We are planning to stay at bay of plenty on April 6&7th. Any rain on these two days depending on the latest update?

Regards,

Linda

Hi Linda, Bay of Plenty -

Hi Linda,

Bay of Plenty - like Auckland, Coromandel, East Cape and Northland - remain in a grey area this weekend, on the cusp of two lows with tropical connections.  Our feeling is that mostly dry weather is expected but there is a 60% chance of rain on Sunday (as opposed to 20 to 30% for today, tomorrow and Saturday)

Kind regards

WW

great job. Thanks a lot :)

great job. Thanks a lot :)

next week

hi we're going to the north west of the north island from kai iwi lakes to the hokianga harbour from Wednesday the 11th of april to friday the 13 th of april. will it be wet. we want to go walking in the waipoua forst one day either wednesday or friday. could you please help

Hi there - at this very early

Hi there - at this very early stage we're predicting a lagre high over central NZ which may produce an easterly over Northland - and a 30 to 40% chance of showers.  However, you'll be on the west coast - so if the long range maps are right, you're in for mostly good weather.  Keep an eye on our rain prediction maps which go out for 14 days - http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/maps

Cheers

Philip Duncan

Models show Strong SW winds

Models show Strong SW winds in the north but it'll be cloud/showers in the west,not rain.

Helensville, Auckland

Are you predicting rain in Helensville in the morning ? Won't hold you to it LOL

Helensville

Looks more likely tomorrow morning but after the week we've had trying to predict exact locations....;)

Wind Gusts swirling

Wind gusts are strong at times swirling well in New Lynn. Monarchs finding flight perilous,especially new hatchings.

te urewera

hi, im booked to go on a 4 day tramp in the Te Urewera national park over easter weekend. I have heard its going to be bad weather out by gisbourne but can you tell me about the weather predictions for the Lake Waikaremoana district through that time. Is it worth giving up the tramp?? cheers

Te Urewera national park

Looks to be windy and wet from time to time. Quite unpleasant conditions are expected throughout the area until later in the weekend.

Cheers

Sat and Sunday

Hey Guys,

We planning a trip to Tauranga this Saturday and Sunday how is the weather looking can we expect any Sunshine?

Cheers

Hi - the large air of low air

Hi - the large air of low air pressure coming out of the tropics is really making a mess of long range predictions at the moment.  Our feeling is that while there is a high risk for wind and rain all weekend in the upper NI, we expect to see some blue sky periods and some calm spells.  We'll have an Easter Forecast out tomorrow (Tuesday) and we hope to greatly add detail to it later on Wednesday.

Kind regards

Philip Duncan 

WOOHOO...

...yet another week of inclemency!!!!!

Hi guys have noticed

Hi guys have noticed metservice is now only say showers for tuesday wednesday, whats your thoughts,as you guys say heavy rain is there still alot of confusion out there about the possible cyclones predicted track.

We will have a complete

We will have a complete update later this afternoon.

At this time though, for Auckland, I am thinking rain...possibly heavy for Tuesday.  Easing for Wednesday.

We almost got it!  Very heavy

We almost got it!  Very heavy rain has been falling all afternoon - but it's been stubborn and has remained a tiny 50kms offshore!  Looks like rain is more likely overnight and Weds morning, esp north of the city centre.

YET ANOTHER MAJOR WEATHER EVENT...

...and so it goes on...ad infinitum ad nauseum!!!!

Good friday

It's my daughters 21st on Friday 6th April to be held outside can you please tell me the likelihood of rain that evening?thanks

Hi there - still far too much

Hi there - still far too much uncertainty next week to be specific about Good Friday sorry - we expect a low to be nearby but it is likely to be weakening or clearing the country around then.  Keep an eye on our rain maps above.  Sorry we can't be more specific just yet.

Cheers!

We are extending our house,

We are extending our house, and the plan is to have the slab poured on Wednesday. We're a bit screwed aren't we. We're going to have to wait till after Easter to have this done now aye or is there a chance that it will be fine on Thursday??? Please say yes :)

Hi there - next week shows a

Hi there - next week shows a high risk (60%) of rain from Tuesday to Friday sorry!  In saying that, there could be three lows moving in to the North Island next week - you may find some dry, sunnier, spells amongst the rain clouds - but it's too early to know when that will be, the long range guidance with this particular system is very messy.  Good luck for next week!

- PD

Gutted, but thanks for the

Gutted, but thanks for the heads up :)

IT'S A SHAME...

...the Auckland area had to wait until the end of March to get three fine days in a row!!

Auckland weather Sunday morning

Hi, we're having a morning tea party for a house full of toddlers and their parents on Sunday morning in Auckland - is the 20% chance of rain more likely in the morning or afternoon do you think? Hoping we'll be able to let the kids outside! Thanks.

Right now it looks like

Right now it looks like morning.

But keep in mind, it's only a 20% chance.  So basically, you have a 2 in 10 chance of seeing a shower during your tea party.

So I think the chances for getting the children outside is are pretty good.

Cheers, HJ

Easter Saturday Wedding

Hi! Getting married Easter Saturday in Auckland - know it's still a bit early for a forecast....any idea how soon we'll have a better idea of what that day is shaping up to look like? Fingers crossed for no rain!
