    Looks like it’s almost on bare sandy beach Ken…
    Now that has an impact on temperatures as well all know from walking over bare sand…
    Fancy our BOM experts parking a poor weather station on bare sand ! Bugger !
    .And the sea is about 100 meters away which would moderate the cool temperatures registered by the thermometer as well…

    I think this weather station is a victim of BOM Warming Ken..
