My pleasure Sir! The aim has always been to provide pilots with a single repository of weather info for the Magaliesberg, rather than have to trawl the web each week!

So glad you find it of use! :wink:

My distinct pleasure Claude! :wink:

Happy to be of continued service! (^^)

When I look at the weather radar image for today versus what I am seeing out the window I sometimes have to question the information I am using, but hopefully I get it close most of the time!

Hey Fellow Magaliesberg Pilots!

We've just nudged through the 30,000 hits milestone and I guess it's as good a time as any to ask for some feedback!

Please let me know how I can improve the information I put together for you on the Magaliesberg Weather Guide!

Is it working for you? Could anything be cut out? Is there too much info?

I would greatly value your feedback!

My advice....

...just don't stop John. :)

Even though I'm based 40 odd miles away, I read your forecast every week, (especially the upper winds!)

Thanks for the time and effort mate. (^^)
