Thank you WW for your very accurate weather forecasting, been noticing the differences between you and others and yours are the most accurate.

Like today, Met Service say sunny with some cloud whereas yours says cloudy with some sun, a big difference and yours is exactly what we have.

Am quite fed up with the constant cold SW winds, we had a boomer day Saturday with temp getting to 28 deg here in Whangarei. Sunday it all changed with a strong SW coming in and cold again.
