A useful list of - www - weather resources for the western South Pacific compiled by Rory Garland of SY Streetcar. Of interest for those currently on their way to the region from Panama and also from NZ and Australia.

For those cruising the tropical south Pacific and trying to make decisions based on the weather, the number of different weather and climate resources available can seem daunting. I hope these notes will help make some sense of it all.

I’ve spent the last 2 years in the region (including two cyclone seasons) and have had the opportunity to consider most sources of information.
