Saturday 07/12/2019

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: Yarras (Mount Seaview) 60085

Opened: 1949

Daily Temperature data from: 1969

Data used to adjust Acorn sites at: Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie (1977)

Location:   Co-ordinates   -31.3865 152.2482

445km south of Brisbane, 290km north of Sydney.

BOM site plan 2018:

Google satellite image 2019:

Skyline survey 2017:

The screen is much too close to large trees and will be shaded by them- until 10.00 a.m. in autumn and after 2.00pm in winter. Trees act as a blanket keeping the site warmer at night. The screen is also close to dirt roads and a driveway.

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: 40.06%.
