thunderstorm

I enjoyed a lightning and thunderstorm tonight. beauty lightning show in auckland. will there be more coming up?

Was quite the show! Looking

Was quite the show! Looking quieter now but more isolated thunderstorms, squalls and hail showers are likely over the next 12 to 24 hours. Hit and miss around NZ so a bit tricky to say if we'll get a repeat or not.

Cheers

squalls

hi will the squalls cause damage.

For Auckland? Probably not,

For Auckland? Probably not, showers just will be a bit squally as westerlies strengthen later this evening.

You should be ok

Power cuts

Hi does auckland need to worry about any power cuts tonight friday due to strong winds

Hi there, we may have a

Hi there, we may have a couple of isolated power cuts overnight or on Saturday (isolated due to various squally showers that produce winds strong enough moving through here and there). Hopefuly nothing too problematic but yes some risk next 24 hours. Another risk again mid next week and also next Friday.

Cheers

Waiouru snow

How bad is the snow going to be on the weekend/ next week for the soldiers training??

Good evening and thanks for

Good evening and thanks for the great (unique) question! We don't want to prejudge the NZ Army but our guess is they will be tough enough to handle this weekend :)  It does look cold though, especially Saturday. Keep an eye on our 10 day Waiouru forecast, as it includes hourly chance of Rain and Snow. Anything above 40% when it comes to snow indicates it may be heavy. Sunday it dries up and Monday things warm back up again.

Cheers

WW

Thanks so much for the great

Hi there

Is looking a bit wet, depending on the timing of a few fronts moving through there may also be some sun and a dry period perhaps. Winds from the northwest, it's not looking cold with temperatures in the high teens.

Hope that helps.

Central Plateau Snow

Hi there, will it snow at Whakapapa village this weekend? If so, how much and will it still be on the ground on Monday? Will the central plateau roads be affected by snow?

Hi there, we are working on

Hi there, we are working on displaying a new Snow and Ski Page but for now we do think they will get snow in the village but it's borderline with National Park and Ohakune looking a little too warm for snow to settle, although in Wairouru and the Desert Road it's a snow/rain mix - potentially SH1 the Desert Road may be impacted by snow for a time - but shouldn't be a major snow dump there. For Whakapapa Village it's higher elevation so should get snow.

The roads look to be open on Monday but the snow level is a little tricker to lock in specifically. Check Ruapehu webcams on Sunday - by then the snow will have eased and you'll have a clear view of where it has settled. It warms up by over 5 degrees more on Monday so snow will melt fast at the lower levels.

Cheers

thunder

why am i seeing the word thunder alot. now.

Hi there, you're seeing it

Hi there, you're seeing it pop up a lot at the moment due to an incoming surge of polar air mixing with the much warmer than normal conditions around the country. Warm air and cold air colliding often makes thunderstorms so we expect a few over the next few days (mostly western NZ) and possibly again next week when we get a couple more big lows with warm and cold air mixing.

Cheers :)

Snow

Hi there, I am just checking back to see if the forecast for snow levels/amounts on the lindis pass for the 1st is more locked in yet. Thanks, Ben

G'day there Looks to be 1 to

G'day there

Looks to be 1 to 3cm possible on Lindis Pass for the 1st. An outside chance of 3 to 5cm but due to snow melt and snow showers likely being broken not much will accumulate if much at all. It's more just a skiff / dusting of snow for Lindis Pass. So yes some perhaps but not alot.

Safe travels!

Cheers
Aaron

Awesome thanks very much for

Awesome thanks very much for the great work guys!

Dunedin weather queens birthday weekend

Hi, I am flying to Dunedin for the long weekend and am wondering what sort of weather I should prepare for. I am also planning to do some outdoor activities and would like to know which are the best days for that. Thanks.

Hi there, Saturday looks

Hi there, Saturday looks wintry with strong winds and some rain (snow on the ranges too). Sunday dries out but will still be a little windy and cool. Monday will be cloudier with perhaps some patchy rain developing. Keep an eye on our 10 day forecast for Dunedin which includes HOURLY forecasts for all 10 days, helping you work out % of rain and wind speeds/direction.

Have a great long weekend,
Cheers

thunderstorm

what time on tuesday will auckland get the thunderstorms? will there be tornadoes possible just wanted to know. i also see that we have lots of rain as winter is arriving

Hi there As below the best I

Hi there

As below the best I can say is early to mid afternoon at this stage.

Perhaps the low risk of a tornado, there is plenty of shear in the atmosphere but there is a chance the highest amount of instability may slip away to the east.

Cheers
Aaron

Thunder storms

Hi any thunder storms over west Auckland on Tuesday thank you

Hi there Early to mid

Hi there

Early to mid afternoon yes there does appear to be a risk as northerlies change northwest.

Cloud status on Thursday May 30th

Hi There. I have a 9 AM domestic flight from Christchurch to Auckland and then an international flight from Auckland to San Francisco. Because of low clouds on Saturday (May 25th) morning, all the morning flights from Christchurch are cancelled. I would like to find out the fog status on Thursday to see if it going to be similar to how it was on Saturday? Any chance you could help me if the weather will be okay for flights to take off on Thursday early morning? Please advise.

Fog isn't looking very likely

Fog isn't looking very likely then, you should be fine :)

Aaron

CHCH fog

When will the fog disappear today 25/05/2019?

Good morning, it is slowly

Good morning, it is slowly lifting now and should be clear from all places in Chch by 1pm.

Kind regards

Weather on Saturday the 1st

Hi there, I am planning on driving from Christchurch to wanaka through the lindis pass on the 1st and I was wondering if there's likely to be snow around on the mountain roads. Thanks in advance! Ben

Hi there It's possible

Hi there

It's possible perhaps, there does appear to be a few cold'ish type outbreak situations coming up but this far out I can't say anything with too much certainty being a week away. At this stage they are looking quite southwesterly anyway meaning not much may fall on the lindis when these cold changes move through.

Will be able to say more about 4 days out.

Cheers
Aaron

Current Hamilton Temperature

Hi, I have noticed that the Hamilton current temperature (IFRANKTO3) has been showing no temperature for a few days now. Keep up the good work. Thanks

Thanks very much for letting

Thanks very much for letting us know. We may remove it if it continues to stay down. Will give it the weekend to come right but if no changes by Monday please let us know and we'll switch you to another nearby station until this one is sorted.

Kind regards and thanks for the feedback :)

Overnight forecasted temperature

On occasions the actual overnight temperature is lower than your forecasted one. Are there any local weather conditions which causes this? I have horses to cover and it would be helpful, and a better nights sleep for me, if I could look at some indicators which suggest that the temperature would be lower than forecasted. Thanks.

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the message and question. NZ's terrain means that most regions have overnight lows that vary by SEVERAL degrees. Most main cities have this too, from suburb to suburb. There is no one single temperature for overnight lows but we try our best to be as local as possible. In saying that, you may find a very nearby area may have better overnights for you. For example, in Auckland on a cold night we actually look at Hamilton's overnight lows to work out how cold some of Auckland's inland, rural, areas will be. Where are you based? There may be a forecast just down the road which may have better overnight lows for you to double check. Let us know.
Cheers
Phil D

Overnight forecasted temperature

Thanks for you prompt reply. I am in Warkworth. If there is somewhere else to double check that would be great. Thanks again.

thunderstorm

hey will there be thunderstorm next week. cause your forecast next friday says scattered thunderstorms.

Good morning, next week our

Good morning, next week our weather pattern is dominated by large lows (the opposite of this week which is dominated by high pressure). There should be a surge of colder air which triggers thunderstorms around NZ later next week. While we can generally see a risk next week (in the forecasts) it doesn't mean on the day that a thunderstorm will form over you - it's just suggesting later next week we have a higher risk of them in the country. We'll be fine tuning that forecast much more by this weekend and of course through next week.

Cheers
