Mariners are advised that Harwich Haven Authority is making the following changes to the local live weather stations (data published on www.hha.co.ukhttps://hha.co.uk/live-data/).

Sensor No. 4 – located at Landguard – will be offline on 25 and 26 June 2024 for essential maintenance work and the height will be adjusted to 11m above ground level / 15m above chart datum.

Sensor No. 2 – located on Ganges Pier at Shotley Gate – will now be retired on 27 June 2024, having been successfully replaced by new Sensor No.7 at Erwarton Beacon.

Additionally, in the week commencing 1 July 2024, the Harwich wind gauge on Navigation House will be relocated from the roof of the building to the knuckle of the Harbour Master’s Pier. This is to avoid building updraft effects and improve the reading quality.
