How the Wind Report WindSMS & this website works
Our Weather stations read the wind 24 hours-a-day 7 days-a-week. The wind data is sent to our server every 3 minutes. Our wind data is way more accurate than any forecast!
The reason we are more accurate is because of the many factors that affect wind flow around the Cape Peninsula 1) Cape Town has many micro climates caused by the mountains of the Cape Peninsula 2) Cape Towns position down South in the cold Benguela current sweeping past our coastline and 3) the dominant southerly winds that reach Cape Towns shores in summer.
How do you get the current Live! Wind Info for any of our stations?

This is the SA Premium Rate SMS system. The Premium Rate WindSMS is priced from R5 to R15 and works for the actual 4x South African Networks - Vodacom, MTN, Telkom Mobile and CellC plus FNB.
You cannot use your CONTRACT Bundle FREE SMS to pull WindSMS - they will NOT work. Aparently the reason why NO bundle sms will work is due to ICASA rules to prevent children signing up for subscription sms services at eg, R5 a day. We do NOT offer any subscription services - every time you require Live! Wind info you have to send a request SMS/text.www.WindReport.co.za gives you the wind data from each station. The wind & weather data is delayed by 2 hours BUT shows data going back 6 hours - to allow you to see how the wind is developing or dropping. Together with Windguru forecasts you can decide that it is increasing and send a WindSMS for the current wind info for a station of your choice or request info from all our stations using GUSTY WindSMS to 39055 at R15 for 4 hours access to ALL CT stations.
