With reference to my earlier message, the Kerikeri stations all record much lower wind speeds than we experience. Are they in particularly sheltered sites?

Hi Bjorny, We don’t think it was us that removed it as we have nothing from Kerikeri in our list of blocked/faulty stations. We have no control over the privately owned weather stations, all we can do is remove broken ones. In this case the owner of it has likely removed it – perhaps to clean it or upgrade it, or it might be permanently gone. As for the sheltered areas, yes a lot of weather stations aren’t placed in the best spots for wind. All are useful for temperature readings but not all are placed within the windy areas – or may be in a location blocked simply by the garden fence.

Hi Phil and team,
You’ve removed a station from your Kerikeri observations which, although often recording quite different wind speeds compared to the other Kerikeri stations, was by far the most accurate for our location. Is there any particular reason you removed it?

Hi Richard, we had this fixed a few months ago. It shows up correctly when we type it in as you’ve spelt it. Can you please send us a screenshot of it written incorrectly to news @ weatherwatch.co.nz. Also, clearing your cache or force refresh may help.
