We've been down this road before.


The secret to telling the future is revisiting the past. Longrange forecasting is about cycles. Working out your current cycle tells us about previous cycles. Weather patterns reoccur with each cycle return. We can use BoM databases or your own records if you have them. If neither then we can still work out your weather cycle from longitude and latitude.


We have the same databases as BoM and can prepare reports for any period ahead once we have worked out your cycle. For small towns with not much historically gathered data we find that other data collected within a circle of 50 -80kms of the town suffices because weather is general to a district.


All weather forecasting, whether short term, extended or longrange carries an expectancy of accuracy of about 80-85% with applicability/error ranging over 50-80 miles and a variation factor of 1-2 days.  In longrange forecasting taking a longer view of trends is more useful because of the accepted and unavoidable inexactness of all weather science, and any 3-4 day window of potential over any and all supplied data will probably give a better understanding of forthcoming conditions than focusing on any one day.


We ask that costs of services and products are prepaid. Therefore we require credit card details: name on card, account number and expiry date. The three-digit security number on the back of the card is not required, which makes the system more secure. All details are deleted from our system afterwards for added security.


If you have ordered from us in the past we would probably no longer hold your credit card details and you would need to re-supply. Personal cheques should be made out to Ken Ring Ltd, P.O.Box 60197 Titirangi, Auckland, 0642, NZ.  Please remember to include address, phone number, and email address, in case we need to contact you. 


Once we receive your details, the usual turnaround for (b) the forecast packages, is about 4-7 working days, subject to delay if we are out of town, conferencing, over holiday periods, or are experiencing technical computer issues.

The report in whole or in part cannot be shared in any way with other parties without written permission of the author. By ordering a report you automatically agree to these conditions.
