    John, you wrote

    I'm wondering if someone can help with this.   I'm looking for a few years worth of weather data for the Temotu Province of the Solomon Islands. 

    You can obtain statistical data for some places on the Solomon Islands as comma-delimited files from the Wunderground Web-page.
    Background - I guy I know is an anthropologist who is looking at the use of 'wind compasses' by traditional navigators.   He has a number of reports of wind direction from the navigators, but he and I are curious about the reliability and steadiness of wind direction during some of the seasons.

    The Wunderground data contain however only wind speed (max and avg), but unfortunately not their direction. Wind directions are only given in a daily history.
