Road view:Nelson Bay road

The screen is close to “flowers to 0.5m”, concrete paths, trees, large buildings, and a carpark.

This station is not compliant, but temperatures are reported at Latest Weather Observations.    Luckily, apparently they are not used to adjust data at Acorn sites.

    Level ground ? A 10 meter fall in slope away from the weather station ?

    Seems to me that BOM staff do not know, or have not been trained to adhere to the BOM’s own guidelines when locating these weather stations.
