Get your weather station on the MetService Your Weather map

Aside from the windy.com maps, you might want to add your site on the Metservice Your Weather maps. New Zealand's Metservice site provides a valuable regional focused resource of local weather stations that is ideal for looking for regional variations in weather. Metservice utilises the UK's Met Office WOW observation programme, to source it's data. So to get on the Your Weather map, you need to sign up to the WOW programme, and go from there.

weather.net.nz Chooses Windy.com as map partner

We're excited to announce that we've selected Windy.com as our mapping partner. This post describes what that means to visitors to the weather.net.nz site.

For a long period of time, we've been looking for a way of displaying weather conditions for personal weather stations. I've personally been involved with other sites in maintaining standalone networks, and these are alot of work to build and maintain. For the weather.net.nz website this isn't our main purpose. We're more focused around education and developing an interest in all things meteorology.

New Zealand Current Conditions Map

The following map displays local conditions around New Zealand. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to zoom in and zoom out as required. You can also choose the information displayed by using the menu down the right hand side.

You can add your weather station to the windy.com service. Although currently it doesn't appear on this view directly, it will appear on the main windy.com site. You can also view personal weather stations. More information here.
