The Wacky World of Weather Stations: No. 184- Lancelin (WA)

Monday 28/10/2019

Please refer back to my first post for site specifications and to No. 92- Logan City for 2018 specifications.  If you wish to check on this (or any) site for yourself, go to my post on how to check for yourself.

Station: Lancelin 9114

Opened: 1965

Daily Temperature data from: 1965

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Geraldton.

Location:   Co-ordinates  -31.0160 115.3322

118km north of Perth CBD.

BOM site plan 2015:

Google satellite image 2019:

Another dreadful site. The screen is very close to buildings, very close to a whole backyard of concrete and pavers, on a watered grass area, and with a 1.8 metre solid Colourbond fence on three sides. It was moved here from an even worse site between March 2014 and September 2015.

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

FAIL

Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 25.41%.

    Well spotted Ken.
    I wonder if our troll Al, will come back with a comment that the Google Earth image here is out of date ..

    It is hard to imagine what the worse site was like.

    It is obvious that the BoM have given up trying to collect accurate temperature readings and prefer sitting in an air-conditioned office and just making up what they think they should be.
