3-day forecasts of temperature, precipitation and wind. Forecasts have to be provided for several regions in the country. Short-term weather forecasts are relevant for the general public to plan activities, while also being reliable. See our methodology section for more information.
The submission was slightly changed. The review refers to the data available at: https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/auckland/manukau Downloadable forecast data needs to be paid for, and is only accessible with limitations. Therefore publicly available data was taken as a reference point for the review. This data is available in HTML, shows weather forecast graphs, and is not downloadable.
