Looking at my phone today the weather widgets for Auckland show high and low forecast temperatures as:

Google Weather: H 21/L 14

Weatherbug: H 19/L 12

but the NZ Met Service website (which I would have thought was 'the authority') is showing H 20/L 13.

None of these are the same. What gives?

Depends on the device the company is pulling info from. I find Weather Underground to be really good; I can use the weather station closest to where I live!

When on Android; I tend to use Accuweather or http://wthr.in.
