The Wacky World of Weather Stations: No. 232- Lameroo (SA)

Monday 18/11/2019

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: Lameroo (Austin Plains) 25562

Opened: 2004

Daily Temperature data from: 2004

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: —

Location:   Co-ordinates -35.3778 140.5378

185km east of Adelaide.

BOM site plan 2017:

Google satellite image 2019:

The screen is a few metres from a dirt track entrance to a paddock, surrounded by open paddocks used for crop growing, with the paddock to the south-west sprayed out to bare soil, and the old wheat paddock to the south-east with the stubble grazed by livestock. The surrounding vegetation is subject to change by human intervention.

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

FAIL

Percentage of all Australian sites not compliant: 32.04%.

  1. Bill in Oz Says:

    The entire Lamaroo district is virtually all cleared paddocks for wheat, canola or sheep & cattle grazing.

    There is no natural landscape left Ken.

    I wonder what BOM’s logic for this weather station is ?
