The Wacky World of Weather Stations: No. 73- Tumbarumba (NSW)

Please refer back to my first post for site specifications.

Station: Tumbarumba 72043

Opened: 1885

Daily Temperature data from: 1965

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Cabramurra

Location:  Co-ordinates  -35.7780  148.0122

Tumbarumba map

About 360km south-west of Sydney.

BOM site plan 2019:

2019 Google satellite image:

The screen looks to be much closer to the driveway and Pound Lane than the site plan indicates.  In any case it is too close to asphalt, buildings, and a steel fence.

This station is non-compliant, with temperatures reported at Latest Weather Observations and used to adjust data at Acorn sites.

    Ken I’ve been looking at Google Earth using the coordinates for this weather station. But I cannot even see the screen at all. Could it be obscured by a tree or bush ? Or maybe moved with out the move being documented by BOM ?
