New Waihi weather station

11 June 2020

In a recent Bulletin we announced we were after a new home for the Waihi weather station to support local growers and had great feedback from several people putting their hands up to be hosts (thanks to you all).

After assessment and a site visit to discuss suitability, the station was set up late last week at its new home on Waihi Beach Road. This new location is very close to the original site which will mean excellent continuity of collected data.

The station is part of our network across the country, feeding data into our online Weather & Disease Portal to provide customised weather information, disease information and interpretations. If you haven’t already signed up to use the model you can do so on the KVH website here.
