We have relied on Canterbury Weather Updates to gives us up to date forecasts for the past two Kathmandu Coast to Coast events. They have been spot on both times, which is no easy task considering we are forecasting from one side of the divide to the other. Thanks to the team at CWU and we look forward to working with you in the future.

– Glen Currie, Kathmandu Coast to Coast, Race Director

“We have been using Canterbury Weather Updates for the last 5 years and have found the information supplied to us extremely accurate and so much better than anyone else in Christchurch. Receiving the information by text message means the information is available instantly and has proved to be an invaluable tool in the running of our business. We would recommend their service to everyone.”

“We have been using Canterbury Weather Updates for the past 5 years, to give accurate forecasting for Hanmer Springs. We have found it very difficult in the past to find accurate weather information, so Canterbury Weather Updates have filled that gap for us and our customers. Russell is fantastic to work with, very down to earth and flexible with how he can work in with us. We are very happy with the product we receive from Canterbury Weather Updates”

– Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa

“We’d like to make a special mention to the team at Canterbury Weather Updates who provided a great amount of support and advice in the weeks leading up the race. With that southerly storm only days before the big day we really needed a tailored weather report and some conversations about what was or was not in store for the mountain. Thanks to Russell at Canterbury Weather Updates we got exactly what we needed”

– Oxford Odyssey

“We engaged Russ at Canterbury Weather Updates to provide us with mid to long range weather outlooks. He met with us and subsequently put together a tailored report for 3 months looking forward. This is updated twice a month based on the latest information available. Our business sells electricity, and a large part of our business is irrigation connections. The information Canterbury Weather Updates has provided, has helped us understand the likely hydro storage situation and also the likely consumption patterns of our irrigation connections in the Canterbury Plains. We would happily recommend Russ to anyone in the Canterbury area.”
