Monday 11/11/2019

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: Kellerberrin 10073

Opened: 1892

Daily Temperature data from: 1910

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Cunderdin, Dalwallinu, Merredin.

Location:   Co-ordinates  -31.6183 117.7217

180km east-north-east of Perth.

BOM site plan 2013:

Google satellite image 2019:

Kellerberrin is an agricultural airstrip. The screen is right beside bare dirt and a dirt driveway, and 13 metres from the 17 metre wide bluemetal(?) circle around the windsock. The area alongside the runway is cropping land, probably sprayed out and just planted in the satellite image. It is also too close to trees.

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: 29.28%.
