The Club owns and operates a number of live data weather station for the major flying sites. The below graphs give a quick overview of current conditions. Please click the graphs to open the page with the full live data.
You'll also find a number of resources listed that can be used in weather forecasting/assessing.
Dills Hill Station has some issues at present, and is not operational.
We aim to have it working soon.
The following resources are available to assist in determining flying conditions:
NZ Rasp: An excellent resource, based on Dr. Jack thermal forecasting parameters.
MetVUW: Long term forecast, Photos of the Day, and a good amount of cool cloud photos. Great for a first overview.
Windy: Great visualisation of wind strength and direction forecasts
PredictWind: A paid subscription. It covers 5 different models, and it is probably the most reliable forecast tool, especially for coastal flying.
MetFlight: General Aviation Weather Briefing, available to all NZHGPA members
