    Long Range Weather Forecast

    I have posted this because I am off down Te Uruwera / Whirinaki this weekend with Scribe and Mohawk660 and don't have Dean's email address to send this forecast to him. Then it occurred to me that it might be useful for others in the central North Island to see.

    Be safe and have fun if you are out there doing it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Thanks Baldbob I look forward to it. I have used this site for years and have learned to check it frequently in the lead up to a hunt because it is subject to significant change. Bloody weather forecasters eh! What other job could you do where you routinely get it so wrong yet still hang on to you job? Imagine if they were surgeons or airline pilots and stuffed up that much.

    Metservice are reasonably accurate and the navy site is eerily accurate...
    Metvuw just always seem to be on drug with there forcasts...

    FNMOC site is the best.. Ur looking in meteorology products then oceania then click on sea surface wind and precipitation or summin like that and you need to select all...
