Weather is an integral part of cruising in New Zealand, and not only so if you venture South as we did. With tropical storms sometimes skirting the North, you will want to monitor the weather quite accurately when navigating Kiwi waters. Fortunately, the available information is excellent. In order to use it to its full, it does, however, require a bit of work. Mostly so that you know what is available where and when, as well as where the places mentioned are.
We found this last point the most difficult at first for a foreigner, since hardly any documentation is available on the subject. For this reason, we share this file we have built and used, in the hope that it may be useful to others. We used it to gather weather data received over the radio, in order both to review it for later use and to have a visual assessment of the situation. Please help us make it better by providing us with your feedback.
