This website was built by Chris Ackland, the developer of the Vic Wind iOS App. The Australia Government Bureau of Meterology provides frequent data updates for a large amount (724) of Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) around Australia and in some offshore islands. This website represents the AWS data in an interactive map across the entirety of Australia. This includes wind speed, wind gust, wind direction, air temperature and apparent air temperature data. The data is usually refreshed every 10 minutes for most AWS locations.

The map webpage has several layers which can be turned on/off by users.

Lastly, use this website at your own risk. Before you engage in any activity, make sure to check with other people who know the areas well, check for adverse conditions, use caution, and never venture into conditions that exceed your ability level and equipment.
