Tuesday 12/11/2019

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: Narembeen 10612

Opened: 1927

Daily Temperature data from: 1965

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Cunderdin, Esperance, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Merredin.

Location:   Co-ordinates  -32.0656 118.3956

240km east of Perth.

BOM site plan 2013:

Google satellite image 2019:

Google street view 2008:

Right in a carpark (probably bitumen)- note the vehicle parked beside it in the street view- and with buildings and solid fences on three sides, and close to the bitumen street and paved footpath- not much more could be wrong.

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: 29.42%.
