Weather, Climate and Site News

The information on this page fills gradually as it becomes available.

For weather news as it breaks, the sites on the Weather and Climate Media Reports page are recommended.


Provisional records set or equalled today

These records are from real time data that is unchecked and may pick up errors as well as true records. They are checked and obvious errors corrected over the next few days, and marked "C" for "Checked" in the comments column. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1412 EST on 17/08/2019.
