Foehn SE

They must be predicting a "reverse" foehn wind from the SE, after the warm front passes through.

Sunday 11 March

Hi team - I'm organising a big picnic in Ellerslie on Sunday 11th. Any idea what the weather will be like then?
Thanks

Hi there - sorry to say but

Hi there - sorry to say but the models are currently predicting a 60% chance of rain or showers - which is fairly high so far out.  But the good news is that the forecast for the 10th is pretty good (at this stage)...which means if the timing is wrong, then the rain may not turn up.  Keep an eye on the rain maps - by clicking on Maps at the top of the page - here's hoping the models aren't accurate this time around!

Cheers

PD

What are the average temperatures

Hi What are the average temperatures in Auckland in February and March? It seems to be a good few degrees less than normal this year.

Auckland temps

Thanks for your question.

Highs are usually about 23-24 degrees during Feb and March on average and lows about 15-17 at night.

It certainly isn't that at the moment!

Cheers,

Richard @ WW

Appreciation

I wish to extend my thanks to all the Weather Watch team for the detailed information you have provided and continue to provide, especially through this storm. I really appreciated that you break the daily weather report into - morning - afternoon - evening and answer queries. Well done and thank you again.

Hi there - thanks very

Hi there - thanks very much!!  We're going to be adding a lot more detail to the other days as well in the next few months - so you can get a more detailed breakdown of each day.

Thanks again :)

More then a sun shower...

this is more then a sun shower here in Titirangi, heavy, heavy rain here for about 20 minutes now, every time it looks as if it's going to ease, it gets heavier...

Round two

The rain cleared to bright blue sky just after i posted that, but round two is coming over the ranges!

North Shore 8.50am

Windy but surprisingly sunny and no rain since I woke up this morning :-)

calm and sunny here in Whangaparaoa

better weather than summer

This is a great site, was going to take my Grandson on the Birkenhead Ferry but thanks to your info will flag it today.

Going to Rotorua from Auckland

Hello! Thanks for your website, great job and info... Going to Rotorua trough Hamilton from Auckland, what time in the morning the winds will easy up? Tks

Hi there -the winds will be

Hi there -the winds will be peaking all morning - but reports are that it's gusty rather than a solid wind.  Conditions to improve this afternoon.

Cheers!

Saturday

Hi. What is the likely peak period for wind and sea violence at Piha on Saturday?

Thanks
Mandeno Moments

Hi Mandeno - that would be

Hi Mandeno - that would be Saturday morning and the afternoon too, but easing later this afternoon.

Saturday night

Hi there,

How dire is Saturday night looking - have a big bday bash and wondering if its gonna be a total washout.

Cheers!

bash

If you're in the Auckland region please check out our forecasts on WeatherWatch.co.nz but hopefully drier overhead but windy and cool.

All the best for the party.

Cheers

Re: Cricket

Hi team, any chance of the cricket going ahead tom at Eden Park, will the rain ease off by then? regards Willie

Eden Park

 Hi Willie,

We think skies should be improving into the afternoon and its the wind that will be more the talking point.

Hopefully it improves for the cricket!

Cheers

WW

rain tonight

Hi there love the new site. Just wondering if you guys new of a rough time when the rain is expected to hit Auckland tonight?

Kind regards
Joe

Hi Joe - its kinda hard

Hi Joe - its kinda hard predicting something that doesn't really exist already, so we have to rely a lot on the models.  At this stage the data is picking spits of rain, the odd shower, increasing this evening with the bulk of the rain moving in late tonight and then easing sometime Saturday morning - best guess is between 7am and 10am according to the more reliable models.

Cheers

- Philip Duncan

p.s. Glad you like the new site - more improvements coming in the next few months too.

Auckland weekend weather

Hi Phillip, Auckland weather this weekend looks very wet on Saturday, is it really likely to be fine on Sunday ?

Regards

Hi David, yes Sunday may be

Hi David, yes Sunday may be quite sunny - but it depends on how fast the low passes by. Certainly the wind direction is favourable and all the models back it.  The one other sticking point may be haze - as we had today due to the strong winds.

Cheers

- WW

Hi, what do you mean by

Hi, what do you mean by Overnight Max 15°C
Shouldn't it say Min...

Very good point - it was

Very good point - it was something we were trialling, rather than having an overnight low that is only briefly reached, we wanted to give a temperature that reflects a "general" overnight temperature. 

We are changing how we display the highs and lows - as it's confusing having the low first - and will probably change to "Min" then, as it's causing confusion.

Cheers!

Next Weekend

Hey There,
Might be a little too early to ask but as I have a big outdoor event planned for 10th & 11th March in Auckland would you guys be able to tell me how the weather is looking as of now.

Thanks

P.S- Love the work you do :)

Hi there -  the forecast,

Hi there -  the forecast, according to our long range maps (http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz/maps) does show another large Tasman Sea low moving in - but not as aggressive as this Saturday's low.  Keep an eye on the rain maps in that link as it's quite helpful for planning outdoor events.  Fingers crossed for you!

Cheers from WW

p.s. Thanks for your support!
