WeatherWatch launches brand-new website

Weatherwatch launches a new-look website, with more maps and data added

After a year of work behind the scenes, launched its new-look website, along with additional new data on 2 March 2020.


The changes bring several new maps, such as:

  • Accumulated rainfall (how much is going to fall),
  • 24-hour nationwide rain radar loop
  • Brand-new thunderstorm outlooks
  • Maximum temperature maps
  • Minimum temperature maps
  • Frost maps (below zero)

The huge upgrade brings much more stability and, more significantly, allows the platform to grow in the future as gears up to also sell high-resolution granular weather data at low pricing. Rather than having to buy clunky packages from government providers, is aiming to make data buying as easy as downloading an app. WeatherWatch says, from day one, their brand has been all about more power to the people.

" looks forward to switching on new data services this year and next as we grow and compete in ways never seen before in the New Zealand marketplace, thanks to investment," says head forecaster and majority owner Philip Duncan.

"Over the past 14 months, WeatherWatch was rebuilt from the ground up to improve speed, performance, and to prepare for the future of selling a lot of data to a lot of people at prices anyone in this country can afford. On top of that, our many free public services continue as usual."
