It is with regret we can no longer offer the weather from Richmond Hill. This websites founder, Alister Smith sadly passed away fairly suddenly earlier this year, and the location is no longer available. We are displaying the TaylorsSurf weather information (one bay around east from Sumner) here in its place until we can source another location to stream a webcam and weather from. Suggestions welcomed.

Dew Point The temperature at which humidity in the air will condense upon a solid surface. In Degrees C. Relitave Humidity the amount of water vapour (vapour pressure) in a given parcel of air divided by the maximum amount of water vapour the parcel of air could contain at a given temperature (saturation vapour pressure) before it would begin to condense into water droplets. Expressed as a %. Air Pressure or atmospheric pressure. air pressure is the force exerted on a surface by the weight of the air above it. The internationally recognized unit for measuring this pressure is the kilopascal. Wind chill is the rate at which a body will cool depending on temperature, wind and humidity differences.
