New Zealand Weather Network

Welcome to the New Zealand Weather Network

There are lots of weather sites around, both locally and internationally. These sites are often great at sharing knowledge about what's happening currently with the weather, or focusing on notable weather events.

We wanted to create something unique, and a bit different. An environment where people were able to learn about the weather, from others who were willing to share their knowledge and help in the learning of others - with a New Zealand focus! Think of the site as a learning hub, where everyone taking part is learning at their own level, and helping others - a weather community.

As we build the site up there will be lots of new features, so come back regularly, and check out our site updates section.

We do want the site to be useful to you, so if you think we should look at adding something, then contact the Admin Team. We're keen to grow the site based on your ideas!

Don't forget to check out our Wiki, and if you would like to contribute then sign up to the site and then use your sign in details to sign into the Wiki.
