Re: NZ tornadoes New Plymouth

The New Plymouth radar is a doppler but the Met Service are stingy about public access. They have a user pays policy.

Taranaki has a 2,500m volcanic peak and the terrain plays a part in the incidence of tornadoes, enhancing low level shear due to deflection. If surface winds veer into the NE in unstable weather then the chance of tornadoes goes up.
