Awatere Valley Weather Stations
Dashwood weather data from 1995 to August 2013 was from the Rural Fire Service weather station located on the corner of SH1 and Awatere Valley road. This station was removed during September 2013 to make way for vineyard development.
Weather data from September 2013 onwards is from the Delegats Dashwood vineyard weather station. This station is located about 500 m from the junction of SH1 and Redwood Pass Road. There are some differences between the two stations in data recorded. Wind Speed and Direction are recorded at approximately 2 metres in height at the Delegats Dashwood station, whereas they were recorded at 10 metres in height at the Rural Fire Service station.
