In regards to my last question- Being a bit old school, I dislike talking about climate change and global warming just as much as the next person down here haha, but are we actually starting to see the effects of it or is this just a weather cycle? Will we ever get deep frosts again like the previous 10 years?

WW Forecast Team on 8/07/2024 11:47pm

It’s been gradually going up and up for the past decade. Data shows that regardless of what is causing it to happen. Certainly heavy frosts are very possible – it only takes a high pressure zone like the one we have tomorrow to be placed over Tasmania instead and we’d have a major Antarctic blast. NZ is very tiny in the big scheme of lows/highs and their airflows, so it doesn’t take much to push us hotter or colder than historically recorded. Humans tend to think weather/climate resets each year but really it’s always changing and never a carbon copy of the year prior.

Seeing these frosts in the forecast for Invercargill has made me realise that we don’t get frosts like we used to, I remember even 5-10 years ago it use to freeze over for days on end and ponds would freeze for weeks. Am I losing my memory or is this statistically happening too?

WW Forecast Team on 8/07/2024 10:49pm

You’re correct Bill – we’ve certainly seen a reduction in heavy and severe frosts over the past decade. Most notably the several years from about 2015 onwards due to a big uptick in high pressure to our north and more westerly driven airflows which are much milder. This past year has been a closer return to normal, but even this week more than half of NZ is warmer than average – and yet that’s with a giant high over us in the depths of winter! Part of this is because NZ is so small one large high or low can bring us a month of above normal temperatures because it’s dragging in air from central Australia or maybe the subtropics. But the other part is to do with the climate warming – and being an island nation it’s harder for us to notice that gradual warming with so much chaos in our weekly weather patterns … but you sure notice it with things like frosts and how much lighter they may now be (generally speaking of course) compared to a decade or two ago.

“Expect possible low cloud/fog from 1:00am to 3:00am and from 4:00am to 5:00am and from 6:00am to 8:00am”

Why would the fog miraculously clear for an hour and then come back?

It’s just showing the hours the data triggers that alert – agree it could be worded better to just avoid times. We’re the only forecaster in NZ with a specific Fog Forecaster and while very accurate it can be further improved.

Cheers
WW
