Thanks very much - and this

Thanks very much - and this is the beauty of WeatherWatch.co.nz - we're as enthusiastic about the weather as our readers/followers so we are always working to ensure our updates are, in fact, up to date as something develops - like last night!  Thanks again for the nice message

Metservice just made it a

Metservice just made it a Moderate risk for storms tonight, and the rain radar is showing a big storm headed for auckland!

Yep we've also raised our

Yep we've also raised our risk to moderate now, and low risk for hail.  Looks like we'll get a few rumbles/flashes. But the problem with Auckland is that it's so big, one end can have thunder/lightning and the other stars/clear skies! (forecasters nightmare!)

PD

Your Auckland Lightning radar

Your Auckland Lightning radar is showing a nice wee storm just off the coast of the kaipara harbour, 133 strikes in the past hour, and it's warranted Metservice to give a low risk of storms tonight, with a moderate risk tomorrow morning, what do you think about this, because I'm not seeing it on the forecast here

Anyway
Keep up your guys awesome work!

Storms went from being just a

Storms went from being just a handful (that we were monitoring but they weren't big enough to warn of) then mid evening they exploded into life (from 100 strikes an hour to 1200!)  prompting both us and MetService to up their risks to moderate - then WW went a step further raising that risk to high by 10pm.  Was a great thunderstorm that's for sure!

PD

Christchurch Fog

Heading to Christchurch early tomorrow morning - is the fog in Christchurch going to be a problem???

Hi thereThere is a resonably

Hi there

There is a resonable possibility that it could cause issues. Keep up to date with your airline and the weather conditions at the time is your best bet.

Got to be there are 5am so will have to rely on the boys with iphones to check it out - or just talk to the airline when we get there. Thanks for your quick reply and lets hope it doesnt!!!!!!!

No worries The cloud is

No worries

The cloud is lowering here as the temperature goes down, I suspect it'll become foggy again very soon so chances just went up for there being delays at the airport here in Chrsitchurch tomorrow morning.

Cheers
Aaron

What's going on with this weather???

It feels like it's been raining for at least 4 weeks.

Crappy weather means crappy traffic.

Wait...traffic is always crap in Auckland anyways.

Crap?

How is this crap for Winter? Even with the rain the sun is out most of the time with light winds and highs of up to 18 degrees? Try Winter in Moscow!

Well yesterday was beautiful.

Well yesterday was beautiful. When can we expect a repeat of that again? It feels like it's been wet for weeks!

Hi there, any idea what the weather will be like during next weekend?
Cheers

G'day Next weekend at this

G'day

Next weekend at this stage looks like there is another low approaching but this time in the southern Tasman Sea and a building north to northwesterly airflow ahead of it. Should be dry and warm out in eastern areas, cloud in the west with generally speaking damp weather.

Wouldn't want to try and predict things to much this far out but to try and be a bit more accurate, showers on Saturday in the west turning to rain on Sunday, rain on Sunday more so on the South Island's West Coast.

Cheers
Aaron

 

Thanks for the prompt reply

Thanks for the prompt reply but what?!?!?!?!?!!
Are you telling me we are not going to get a break from this crappy weather for forever?

Cheers

Depends where you live but if

Depends where you live but if in Auckland spring is usually the windiest and most showery season of the entire year.

As we head towards spring the

As we head towards spring the weather systems speed up and we also get some big highs - so fingers crossed the next 7 to 10 days are the last of this wet stuff!

Northand tomorrow

What time is the trough expected to cross Kerikeri tomorrow? I am meant to be flying a light aircraft between there and Whangarei and am looking to beat the storm. Cheers

Most of the forecasting we do

Most of the forecasting we do here at WeatherWatch involves the situation at the surface, for planes (i.e. higher up in the atmosphere) you would be recommended to view official aviation forecasts via the metflight service for TAF's and ARFOR's.

In general terms a trough has already passed over early this morning in the area you mention and another weaker one is due around midday.

Showers are likely to affect Northland for much of today clearing in the evening. 20 knot westerlies early this morning tending southwesterly 20 knots by midday easing to 10 to 15 knot winds this evening, mind you that's at the surface so add another 5 to 10 knots to that where I would imagine you would be flying and your gusting speeds will be 5 to 10 knots above that yet again.

I don't know the abilities of your aircraft and what you can handle in terms of the weather but more then likely I would say it's not the best day to be flying light aircraft up there. Friday morning would be a better bet.

Cheers

time of forecast

Hi, I'm looking at your forecast for Auckland, but can't see when it was last updated, so don't know whether it's a recent forecast or from say 12 hours ago. Given how changeable Auckland's weather can be, It would be good if you could add a note to your forecasts identifying when they were last updated (or, if it's already there somewhere, make it a bit more obvious, like on the metservice website).
cheers

Hi there, our forecasts are

Hi there, our forecasts are updated constantly throughout the day.  For example we don't like having a forecast saying "Rain clearing tonight" when the rain has already cleared.  Or "Frosty and sunny" in a 'today forecast' at 11am.

For "Today's" weather we update most hours across the 24 hour day - sometimes a few times an hour if we're tracking a particular shower/band of rain (we might mention it's in Henderson, then the next update 20 mins later may say it's over Albany etc).  We are the only forecaster who does this type of micro-forecasting in our public forecasts.

We update Day 2 a few times a day and Days 3+ are updated around twice a day (as new international data only comes in a couple times a day).

We're trying to keep our site as simplistic as possible so have no plans to add timestamps for forecasts but as you can see the current forecast is being continuously monitored and updated.

Cheers
Phil

Hi just a Question for Saturday the 11th of august

Were having a Bbq For our sons birthday this saturday and Im thinking to change my mind, cause I see itll be raining, So my question is Will it Rain alot in the afternoon or is it just showers?

That's the trucky question.

That's the trucky question.  We know the low will be there and we know a band of rain will come down later on Saturday - but as for when the showers will start and when the rain will start, that's much harder to pinpoint.  At this stage it's showing showers turning to rain in the afternoon.  Will have a better idea in another 24 to 36 hours.

Cheers
PD

Thank you and Ill definately

Thank you and Ill definately get beck to you in 36 hours :)

Ash

I work up in the Waitaks and today my truck had a pale grey deposit of 'stuff' over it. It was not pollen. could this have been ash? This is up at Karekare.

Hi there It would seem very

Hi there

It would seem very unlikely that it was ash from Tongariro as the wind direction couldn't support ash going up that way. Thanks for your query! :)

I was expecting shocking weather for the last few days but have been pleasantly surprised. We've had a bit of rain, but nothing like expected and even some sunshine yesterday.

Loving it!!

Watching the rain radar all

Watching the rain radar all weekend Auckland was very close to having a wet past few days - we can thank the ranges to our north and east for stopping most of the rain!

- WW

Any inkling when sunny skies would be back again?

Hi,
After two weeks of wet weather I'm longing for good sunny days. Do you see any on the horizon? Thanks

today was pretty darned nice!

today was pretty darned nice! :)

When is this bloody annoying

When is this bloody annoying rain going to leave? I have had enough of it I think we all have . The car hasn't been washed for weeks and its brown now lol this has to be the most crappiest weather I have ever seen

We have another low coming in

We have another low coming in this week (leave the car outside in the rain!) then possibly another behind it.  We're hoping that drier weather will move in towards week 3 of August - but only early days at this stage!

HI there - a bit too early to know for sure, so feel free to ask again in a few days time.  In the meantime, click on the Maps link at the top of the page to see what the current models are predicting rainwise for you.

Weather forecast

Hi, any idea what the weather patterns are going to be like for August, September and October? We are trying to plan some outdoor works, and need decent dry spells to carry out the works.

All indicators are pointing

All indicators are pointing towards El Nino - which tends to bring windier, drier, weather to Auckland - coupled with spring that further increases the chances of westerlies and less of these nor'easters.  We don't really have a lot of faith in forecasts beyond a month unless we have a strong weather pattern, which we dont at the moment, so for now we're predicting an increase in westerlies for the second half of August,

Cheers

WW

last night

Philip those few showers last night got together and had children. Consistent rain here in West Auckland from 7 p.m. till 3 a.m., some of it quite heavy.
Do you think the volume of precipitation we have experienced over the last few days is likely to increase or decrease over the next few days? The ground must be totally saturated
Cheers Bill

What a great way of

What a great way of describing it!  That's certainly what it felt like...a few showers which then spread and turned to rain.  Very odd weather pattern with these constant bands of showers and rain (and some of those showers, like last night, can catch up with each other and turn to rain) moving in from the north.  Id imagine that it will decrease on Friday but high risk again on Saturday for more rain, and 60% risk for Sunday.  Hard to know if it will be as intense...certainly has the potential but will come down to the luck of the draw on the day as to where the rain clouds organise themselves.  For example last nights heavy rain formed over northern Auckland then shifted south... a little further north it was mostly dry.
