Forecast Accuracy in New Zealand

Chris Dunhill May 16, 2019 09:12AM BST


The forecasts for Queenstown NZ and surrounding areas seem to be drastically different to every other forecast provider I've checked, showing max temperature differences of up to 5 degrees. The conditions also do not seem to even vaguely match.

Is there a known problem?

Thanks, Chris

Hello Chris,

Could you please tell, how do you collect forecast?

I have the same problem. On my Android phone I get it from my calendar app, CalenGoo. But your website forecast is way off also. For example, your forecast for Loveland, US [40.4, -105.08] for Sat June 1 has a high of 59.1 and Sun June 2 a high of 59.7. Other weather providers have highs in the high 70's, which will be correct.

I sure would like OpenWeatherMap to forecast correctly so I can use it, but right now it's worthless.
