GPS flight log data added in August, 1995 by http://www.ultranet.com/~tlauck/

This information was sent to me directly from New Zealand by Bruce Hoult.



Weather Forecast Jan 13

Situation: A ridge of high pressure lies across central NZ between an
eastward moving high centre over the central Tasman and a stationary
centre near the Chathams.  A westerly flow affects the south of the
country ahead of a weak front expected to brush the south of the
South Island about midday.

Forecast: Fine weather with patchy high cloud but thickening mid level
cloud affecting areas from Wanaka south from late morning.  Westerly
winds, stronger in the south and backing SW from about midday.  NE
flow developing in the east this morning.  Winds weaker in the north.

Soaring: Weak wave from about Queenstown but dissipating by mid
afternoon.  Moderate blue thermals although isolated CU developing about
the tops.  Thermals weak under middle cloud cover.  Moderate convection
associated with convergence about the east ranges this afternoon.

Temp max approx 28.5C.  Trigger temp 24.5C.
