The screen is very close to bitumen on three sides, close to a wide (four track) railway corridor and a four lane highway to the east, on a slope, with trees nearby.

And it was moved here from a supposedly poorer site between September 2006 and November 2007:

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

    That must qualify in the Top 10 Hit Parade!

    It certainly qualifies for the top billing in BOM ‘Bombed’ weather station sites list.

    Has BOM no shame at their own stupidity & incompetence ?
