The central region of NZ now has a dedicated VHF weather
channel. Transmitted on ch23, it will provide weather
information for Wellington/Cook Straight. The weather data is obtained from four MetService weather sites (that stuffs up any accuracy right there) and one Coastguard site.(so we still have a reasonable degree of accuracy then). The average wind
speed and direction along with the peak gust over the last minute will be reported from Wellington Airport
, Karori Rock (such a lovely place) The Brothers, Stephens Island and Mana Island.The service
will be continually updated with the relevant local weather forcasts. tides and weather warnings. In the future, weather data from Farewell spit and Seperation Point will be added. The service
will eventually be extended to cover Nelson and the entire Central region.
