•   Derek: weather vane could be stuck, or local wind effect - can easily get eddies, back drafts etc due to buildings, rooflines, trees, hill effects etc etc. Because of shelter and hills here, we get easterly back draft winds for almost all wind directions...
 July 18, 2014, 05:29:47 PM

Today at 08:40:31 PM

•   ato2: 1.1 degrees at New Plymouth airport. Colder than last night, for sure.
Today at 08:44:21 PM
