New Zealand Weather Network

Welcome to the New Zealand Weather Network

Welcome! The NZ Weather Network is focused on creating 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 true weather community.

You can contribute to the site by registering and asking or answering questions, adding content, or taking part in the the community based groups.

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.
