I set up the Burwood weather station up in 2002, and am now using the Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station (and some 1-wire sensors from HobbyBoards) with Weather Display as the program. The data on the internet is taken from "Weather Display". The weather station is located in Burwood, Christchurch, NZ near the Travis Wetland. I have always been interested in weather like most people and was keen to see what happens over the long period. The data was soon made available to the internet where I now get thousands of hits per month with about 6000 visitors in one day of February 2011. People from most countries visit the site each month!

Over the years I have noted the difference in temperature and rain data from the Met data from the Chch airport. Burwood seems to be in a rain shadow from the Port Hills, which means that this area receives less rain than the west side of the city and often has a slightly higher temperture than the west side of the city.
