NZ's Weldon

I think we have found our Weldon.

Just to the NW, at the Earth and Sky Observatory, they recorded NZ's strongest wind at 250kph.

It is about the same height as Weldon.

It has a big lake in front of it.

The wind funnels down a valley and across a flat expanse before hitting this ridge.

It is for WNW-NW winds

It is accessible!

It is about 2.5 hours drive from Christchurch.

Lots of similar stats to Weldon.

But whether is puts out speeds like Weldon, time will tell...
