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

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

Phil

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 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.

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

Daylight savings has caused a few issues which we're urgently resolving.  Hope to have this fixed today at some point - in the meantime you can see the full forecast here: http://www.weathermap.co.nz/general-forecast/new-zealand/auckland

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

Your more in the flow there

Your more in the flow there so would likely catch a bit more of the weather this system is producing.

Still, pretty much at the same time as your comment was posted Auckland did start to catch alot more showers and drizzle and we updated accordingly.

Hopefully we do a good job for you this weekend! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Mangawhai

Hi we're heading to Mangawhai on the 6th. I just looked at the interactive map which is showing between 0.1mm and 1mm per hour for the whole three days we're planning to be up there, does that indicate that any rain is likely to be fairly intermittent or constant and light? I know it's a long way out and things could change dramatically (praying for that to be for the better, not worse!)

Thanks

Hi there - timing is

Hi there - timing is everything for the 6th and this far out we have to rely on those models a lot.  Based on the current models it looks as though a pleasant start to the day with clouds and winds building, then rain by evening.  However this far out that front could arrive 24 hours earlier or even 48 hours later!  So that's why we focus so much on the 6 day forecast, until technology is better with 10 days for New Zealand.   Hope that helps for now!

Cheers

Phil

Monday's looking "fresh"

Zero degrees high and low... :))

Can't trust computers eh! :D

Can't trust computers eh! :D All good now, cheers!

Fantastic cloud displays today as strong wind blows. Hoping the black flag up at New Lynn blows away!

Those SW winds are getting more agressive and earlier each forecast day,3 days ago wasnt factored yesterday mon pm/tues now saturday.

We think winds will turn more westerly for Sunday and Monday - but sou'westers develop late Monday and last to Friday potentially.  We have full details tomorrow morning from 7am about the cooler change coming next week for NZ

Fishing friday

Hey is the forecast for Friday the 28th accurate?? I'm going fishing and just want to chek also do u know how many knots it will be blowing?? I'm in auckland

Hi there - you're best to

Hi there - you're best to click on our Maps section at the top of the page. There you can see chance of rain, how windy it will be and the size of the swells.   At this stage we have a 40% chance of showers with a SSE wind averageing 25 to 30km/h on land. 

Cheers

WW

When's the forecast get updated?

I've been checking all day and nothing's changed. Is the weather staying constant

A good forecast shouldn't be

A good forecast shouldn't be changing!!  But our forecasts are updated several times a day - and this system has 100% stalled.  So everything that was forecast for today, Weds and Thurs, have now all been delayed 12 to 24 hours as this very large high moves off us.  All last week and even yesterday the latest data indicated this would happen today - but it looks as though it's holding on. Of course with the high holding on longer the showers that were supposed to spread further today have started to fizzle out as they run out of steam.  A complicated few days ahead weatherwise.

- WW

please tell me good weather is on its way ??

hey guys im planning an outdoor activity on the 5th of october ( next friday ) i know its quite early but any idea what the weather will be like ??
thanks
melissa

Hi there, not really sure

Hi there, not really sure that far out. In the longest of the long ranges models it is hinting at generally higher areas of pressure that are fairly constant. So extreme types of weather could be counted out i.e. heavy rain or gales. There are also hints that there will be periods of southwesterlies followed by northwesterlies then reverting back to the southwest again.

Friday 5th may be a building pattern before a frontal system so increasing cloud with northwesterly winds and a low risk of showers perhaps but that's a pretty long shot. Feel free to check back in closer to the time! :)

Cheers
Aaron

Okay

so who is going to crack first for this weeks forecast? MS have a dismal one where you one sounds pretty good...need to start to make outside plans for the weekend folks!

Am not sure how things were

Am not sure how things were looking this morning but agree it's gonna be a fairly dismal week for the North Island and the forecasts seems to reflect that above. Cheers! :D
