NZ Weather of interest

Postby Tim S » Tue Apr 29, 2008 10:08 am

http://www.weatherforum.org.nz/phpBB3/index.php

Thought I would start a thread for the weather across the ditch as they can have some fairly interesting weather.

A good example is now with a rather good trough line and low pressure system approaching them, this from a nz news site: (note how the metservice are warning that weak tornados are possible, you don't see that here...)
Heavy rain across NZ, tornado warnings

Temperatures may be warmer than usual, but summer is over, with torrential rain, thunderstorms and the possibility of weak tornadoes about to hit.
MetService has issued severe weather warnings for many parts of the country, with up to 200 millimetres of rain expected around Gisborne tonight, as a deep low moves in from the Tasman Sea. Rain warnings have been issued for much of the North Island, including Kapiti Coast and Wellington.
MetService forecaster Bob McDavitt said the weather map had virtually everything on it, beginning with heavy rain, thunderstorms and even some weak tornadoes in the South Island.
But temperatures yesterday were higher than usual, with Lyttelton recording nearly 26 degrees and Gisborne, Napier and Hastings close to 25. Wellington recorded 20 degrees in the late morning.
The warmer temperatures would be gone tomorrow, Mr McDavitt said, as a cold rainy southerly spread over the South Island, possibly leading to snow.
There was flooding this morning in Rotorua and Whangarei, police said.
In Whangarei the Ngunguru road near to Kiripaka Road was closed due to flooding and diversions in place.
In Rotorua, road diversions were in place following flooding on Amohau street near Fenton Street.

That would be the weather we sort of had over here recently.

NZ does get some pretty fine weather and when I say fine it is not what the average layperson would be thinking !!

Well looks as though Wellington got a very decent downpour last night, the official metservice site says 94.4mm fell in the 24hrs to 9am this morning, their average for the month can't be much higher than that, I'll have to check it up.

here's a news article: http://www.stuff.co.nz/4505162a10.html

looks as though the worst of the weather will be over for them now, although snow is forecast to relatively low levels over the south island so a nice start to the snow season for them, not that it has really started yet.

Heres a good guide to rainfall and snow levels for NZ, the area in which snow is possible is bounded by the purple lines: http://www.metservice.co.nz/default/ind ... ainoutlook

Looks like a rather intense low pressure system will effect the north Island over the weekend, this is the warning from metservice.co.nz
MAJOR STORM EXPECTED TO AFFECT MUCH OF THE NORTH ISLAND THIS WEEKEND

A low over the north Tasman Sea is expected to deepen rapidly overnight and approach northern New Zealand Saturday morning. This unusually intense low is forecast to move over Cape Reinga late Saturday afternoon then track southeastwards past Coromandel Peninsula around midnight, and lie near East Cape by midday Sunday. A front ahead of the low is expected to bring widespread rain to the North Island by the end of Saturday and gales are likely to affect most parts of the North Island. The heaviest rain should be in Northland, northern Auckland, Coromandel Peninsula, Gisborne and the Hawkes Bay. In these areas streams and rivers could rise quickly,with surface flooding and slips likely.East to southeast gales are also expected to affect the North Island,with potentially damaging wind gusts of around 130 km/h possible in most exposed parts of the North Island, excluding Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay. MetService advises the public that winds of this strength have the potential to damage trees, powerlines and insecure structures and make driving hazardous, especially combined with heavy rain and possible slips. Boaties are advised to make moorings secure as soon as possible as high winds and large waves are likely about northern and eastern coasts of the North Island. This is a potentially destructive and dangerous storm and people in the North Island, especially from Waikato northwards, would be well advised to avoid unnecessary travel.

This situation is similar to one I had when over in New Zealand where a woman was killed close to where I was and I was isolated for about 48 hours because of mud slides up int he coromandel.

This from the severe weather warning email I am a part of from Metservice.

Tim you may do well to get on that list. It is by far the best service from NZ.

SEVERE WEATHER WARNING.
ISSUED BY MetService AT 8:14 am 26-Jul-2008

MAJOR STORM STILL ON TRACK TO HIT THE NORTH ISLAND

A very deep low is approaching northern New Zealand this morning from
the north Tasman Sea. This unusually intense low is forecast to move
over Cape Reinga towards evening and then track southeastwards past
Coromandel Peninsula around midnight, and lie near East Cape by
midday Sunday. East to southeast gales are expected to buffet the
North Island, with potentially damaging wind gusts of around 130 km/h
possible in many exposed parts of the North Island, excluding
Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay. MetService advises the public that winds
of this strength have the potential to damage trees, powerlines and
insecure structures and make driving hazardous, especially combined
with heavy rain and possible slips. Boaties are advised to avoid
going out and should have made moorings secure as high winds and very
large waves are likely about northern and eastern coasts of the North
Island.

A front ahead of the low is expected to bring widespread rain to the
North Island by the end of Saturday. The heaviest rain should be in
Northland,northern Auckland, Coromandel Peninsula, Gisborne and the
Hawkes Bay. In these areas streams and rivers could rise quickly,
with surface flooding and slips likely.

THIS IS A POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE AND DANGEROUS STORM AND PEOPLE IN
THE NORTH ISLAND, ESPECIALLY FROM WAIKATO NORTHWARDS, WOULD BE WELL
ADVISED TO AVOID UNNECESSARY TRAVEL.

yeah I will have to sign up to that email service Chop, not doing it now though, the metservice site is flooded at the moment, the page takes a good 2 mins to load.

Looks as though the low is fairly close to the Northern Tip of the NI now, according to this news report Cape Brett had a gust to 165km/hr a couple of hours ago! http://stuff.co.nz/4631448a11.html

I've not been to NZ but have been doing research during the last few years regarding my gggGrandfather who was an original settler (blacksmith) at the Enderby Settlement on the Auckland Islands. I suppose most Kiwi's would know where they are-- about 500 km south of NZ in latitude 50.5s. The weather there was apparently pretty crook most of the year with plenty of references to bad frosts, sea level snow and frequent gales.

I was talking to a fellow descendent who lives on Stewart Is. last Thursday and asked him what he thought the weather would have been like at the Auckland's in July.. he said 'rats**t'. I then asked how the weather was at Stewart Is. he said 'rats**t'. He was a person of few words but I got the message :lol:
2006 - 543.5mm, 2007 - 701.5mm, 2008 - 833.5mm, 2009 - 579mm, 2010 - 631.5mm, 2011 - 872.5mm, 2012 - 770mm

2013 Jan 5mm YTD 5mm

Now that is a low pressure system.. what a beast!

from the age website:
MetService described the storm as "extremely rare and nasty", predicting that in the 24 hours to midday Sunday up to 200mm of rain would fall in the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty, with slightly less rain north of Auckland.

"It is one of the largest and deepest lows we've seen for some years," said MetService spokesman Peter Kreft.

I was born and are originally from gisborne, so i hope there is not any major storm damage there.

In all the years i lived there, i never remember a low like that !

Shame perth does not get those lows. Or has it had an intense low over it in the last 30 years? I assume we are not far south enough to get these intense lows?

I'm not sure, having been in Perth for less than a year but it's unlikely we'd get an intense cold core low this far north. It's more likely that Perth could get a low of that magnitude via a trop cyclone that has gone extra tropical but again people who've been here for 10 to 20 years would be better people to answer..

Was reading about rainfall in gisborne until a few days ago they had only had 23mm for the month :o

And i thought perth had dry winters!

So far they are now up to 60 or so mm with that "weather bomb" or whatever it is giving rain to gisborne.

by the way gisborne is on the east coast of new zealand for people who may not know that.

The average is 118mm for july there and the month is almost out and they have not received the average.

MAJOR STORM MOVING TOWARDS NORTH ISLAND WILL BRING ADVERSE WEATHER TO
MUCH OF THE COUNTRY
A deepening low northwest of the North Island should lie west of
Taranaki by midnight Wednesday and cross central New Zealand during
Thursday.
Further rain is expected over Northland with heavy falls overnight as
an active front moves southwards, then easing in the morning.
The front will move over Auckland early morning then onto the centre
of the North Island later in the morning, bringing heavy rain to
Coromandel Peninsula,Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and
Wairarapa.
Heavy rain will also spread into parts of Marlborough, Nelson and
