About us

With WeatherMap you know you're getting quality forecast information.

New Zealand is a unique place for weather - the variability and complexity we experience daily means that our population is very aware of the weather outcomes. We must have a higher percentage of 'weather experts' per capita than any other country. Everyone knows that the weather can be very different only 20 km down the road, and that's why WeatherMap provides forecasts at a resolution of 6 to 18 km. This allows us to predict the weather at many of the smaller towns in New Zealand, as well as splitting our bigger cities into smaller weather (and activity) areas.

The system was developed by MetOcean Solutions, who provide high tolerance weather data to the offshore and marine industry in New Zealand and overseas.

Forecasts are generated using the latest atmospheric and oceanographic numerical models, and a large computing facility. All the weather information is made in New Zealand and is presented without human interpretation.

Date and times are provided in local time of that spot. Our forecasts provide 7 days of information which is divided up into 6 hourly blocks. The WeatherMap forecasts are updated 4 times daily to keep you upto date with the latest conditions.

We are passionate about what we do, and aim to give you the best forecast experience. If you have any feedback or issues with this website please email us at feedback@weathermap.co.nz.
