Comments

I think weatherwatch is the

I think weatherwatch is the best forecaster out there and really accurate unlike metservice that always have negative forecasts and never say that it will be sunny even when its sunny outside they always say rain and they are always wrong lol you guys are way better

Temperature

Since when is it 16 degrees in December? What I meant was, are we around the average maximum for this time of year?

Here's a link to some climate

Here's a link to some climate info on Auckland, data is via NIWA - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland

Mentions that in October average is 17.8 degrees. December average is 21.6

So perhaps this week is a tad below average indeed.

Fishing

Hi there how are you. Just wondering if it is good to go fishing tmrw. I just want to know which day of this week is going to be the calmest and more settled. If it is too windy its no good.

Hi there - Wednesday looks

Hi there - Wednesday looks likely to be the calmest day of the week - but winds may still get over 30knots out at sea.  Use our wind and swell maps (at the top of the page, where it says MAPS) - plus check out the independent marine forecasts at weathermap.co.nz.  Borderline for fishing - fingers crossed for you!

Cheers,

WW

 

Zoo weather

Hi there which day this week will have the best weather for central auckland? planning a trip to zoo.

Hi there - both Tuesday

Hi there - both Tuesday and Wednesday look much drier than recent days.  Wednesday will likely be the warmest, driest and calmest day of the week - despite it still be a bit windy and cloudy, 10% chance of a shower.

Weather on 18 & 19 October (West Auckland)

Hi, Any idea on the expected weather this Thursday and Friday (especially Friday) in West Auckland. We're particularly interested in rainfall figures. Thanks

Hi there - we expect a

Hi there - we expect a cold front to pass through on Thursday, so Thursday has a 60% chance of rain while Friday has a lower risk.  Windy both days and colder Friday based on the data at this stage.

Cheers

Temperature

Hi, back to 16 again all week? Is that normal for mid October or am I right in thinking it should have warmed up a bit by now?

Thanks

Its will remain like it till

Its will remain like it till Christmas give 1 or 2 days here and there.Windy and Showery.

Triathlon Weekend

Have you started to take a look out to the weekend of 21st - 22nd October for the triathlon World Championships? Some of us from across the water are still trying to decide what to pack :)

Especially welcome would be comments on the likely wind conditions mid-morning.

Hi there - we'll have our

Hi there - we'll have our first Labour Weekend forecast out this evening - but at this stage we have a 30% chance of showers on Saturday with west to south west winds brisk at times - but easing.  Our feeling is that Sun and Mon look dry for Auckland - but please note this is very early prediction so might change.   

Cheers

WW

Windy Southwesterlies again

Windy Southwesterlies again with cloud and odd shower.

wonderful cloud displays

Great cloud displays of iridescence, shapes,lenticulars this afternoon over west Auckland. Cloud seems to be settling south of New Lynn. Hopefully we will have a great sunset tonight.

Maps

Hey guys are you aware the maps are not working this morning?

Cheers

Hi Dave - yes we contacted

Hi Dave - yes we contacted Weathermap earlier to inform them of the fault.  Bad timing!  But hopefully it will be resolved this morning.  We apologise for the inconvenience.

golf saturday

Hi,
I have club champs on Saturday on Aucklands north shore 12.20pm tee off i know its going to be wet but trying to get a idea on how wet by then , Might actually be a help as i'm hitting like my grandmother..thanks guys

Hi there - at this stage

Hi there - at this stage we're predicting rain, heavy at times, with brisk northerlies.  Can't be specific as to 12:20pm - there will be a mix of steady normal/patchy rain but also some heavy bursts too.  Easing in the afternoon to sunny spells.  Timing for it to end, at this stage, looks like between 2pm and 6pm - but then we expect the winds to pick up.  It's an evolving and developing situation so expect tweaks to the forecast later today.

Cheers

WW

Weather bomb

From what I can see it doesn't look particularly wet for the northern half due the so called bomb. The wet stuff looks to be further south. Am I right about that?

I am doing concrete on the eastern Coromandel on the weekend so the drier the better

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave - it's still a bit

Hi Dave - it's still a bit tricky to be precise with these systems.  They are quite unpredictable this far out, however it does appear that you're right - most of the rain looks like it will be south of Waikato, it will move through much quicker for us in the north.  Your best bet is to use our rain maps in the Maps tab above - that way you can plot the rain (and intensity) across stages of the weekend.  It will get more accurate with each day.

Cheers

snail weather

Light showers have encouraged hundreds of snails out tonight in New Lynn, crunching underfoot!

Windy Auckland

Is it me or has it been especially windy the last 2-3 mths in Auckland and when can we expect some relief

It's been fairly standard for

It's been fairly standard for Auckland - and Sept/Oct the west to south west winds howl through this region moreso than many others.

Relief usually arrives in mid November as the spring winds start to wind down....so about 6 more weeks! (but there will be calm spells in between - potentially calm the week leading up to Labour Weekend).

Cheers
WW

Maybe not a washout but

Maybe not a washout but showers do look on the cards. Please refer to the question asked below as the answer applies to your question too. Many thanks! :)

Saturday

Hi is it likely to be clear noonish on Saturday in akl? Actually 60% chance of rain sounds like the odds are not in my favour.eek!

Is a wee way out but yes

Is a wee way out but yes Auckland is looking to have showers on Saturday but a few clear spells in the mix are possible too. West to northwesterly winds a little breezy.

Cheers

Winds not dying down

Winds not dying down whatsoever,infact theyre increasing more.

Can't argue there, winds were

Can't argue there, winds were increasing for most of yesterday. I am not exactly sure of the situation but I believe it might've been a forecast relating to southwesterlies easing in the evening???  Typically southwesterlies ease up there in the evening about the city but they don't look to of at all until later in the night and then that trend has continued today where they have continued to back off slowly.

Cheers
Aaron

Infact they were much of

Infact they were much of yesterday WSW this not the strongest direction,about 210-230 deg its the maximum speed direction,they arrived about 6pm true SW.

what happened to "sw easing"?

Not sure there Michael.

Not sure there Michael. Doesn't look like any west or southwest wind eased at all yesterday in Auckland. Would've been 2 foot of pine needles I suspect on the ground to rake up afterwards. :D

App

Hi guys. Your site is always my first port of call and judging by the totally inadequate metservice app (read the user comments), would you consider developing an APP for Weatherwatch? It wouldbe invaluable. Appreciate your consideration. Marcus.

Hi there Thanks for your

Hi there

Thanks for your support! :)

Yes an app is on the way. It's in the design phase now and we're aiming to have it ready this summer.

Cheers

When will we see 0% chance of precip again?

Hi,
Just scanned thru the extended forecast to Tuesday and it's mostly showers :-(

No relief especially if youre

No relief especially if youre in Auckland.

That's spring for ya!  Our

That's spring for ya!  Our Sunday forecast has 20% but some data today says 0.  We're keeping it at 20% though due to the instability at the moment.  May not be until November that we start seeing the 0s return more frequently.  :)

Rain Thursday

HI, any idea if the rain will be heavier on Thursday, in the morning or the afternoon?? Want to sight a new rifle in, but don't want to be lying in the rain......
Location: South East Auckland.

Ha, yeah that doesn't sound

Ha, yeah that doesn't sound too pleasant.  At this stage the data is a bit conflicted but does appear that a weak front or area of showers will pass by.  About a 60% chance at this stage of showers - I suggest checking this evening.  We get a great data update around 5pm which we apply to all of our 6 day forecasts.   

So long story short - looks like a few showers developing, then clearing later on.  Nothing too major but may wet the ground again.

- WW

Thursdays Wind

How strong do you think it will get and is it getting worse as the day goes on?

Hi there, the latest data

Hi there, the latest data just came in and while it looks as though showers may move in during the day, the winds should slowly ease back by evening.  Not a particularly nasty day - but possibly not too pleasant either... typical spring weather!

- WW

Mobile Site and/or Mobile App?

Was just wondering whether WW was in the process of developing a mobile site or mobile app? You guys are the only weather forecasting service I trust, so would be awesome if we could access WW from anywhere, anytime!

Hi there - yes we do have

Hi there - yes we do have plans to launch an app - infact possibly 3 Apps (definitely 2).

The first one will simply be a basic version of our website (working to get it built now) so you can access our forecasts, maps, news, photos and weather videos.  And unlike the others we won't be charging for our app (we don't think it's right to charge for an app if the same information can be accessed on your website for free, just seems wrong)

The other app, or apps, will contain exclusive content mostly unavailable on our site - so will have a minimal cost for those who think it's worth it (which it will be!). 

Cheers

Phil

Torrential rain is right on time

An isolated shower?

Guys (and girls) - i love your work, you are the only weather channel I pay attention to. Most of the time, you are spot on, but today - you mention an isolated shower.

Well, up here on the South Head, it has not stopped drizzling for the last 4 hours! It's reminding me of my homeland (UK)

Hoping your prediction for the weekend is accurate as usual, because it's been miserable and dull this week

Keep up the good work
