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

Initially, these records are from real time data that has not been verified. Within a few days, AWN checks the data for obvious errors, flags items "C" for "Checked" in the comments column and adds notes about possible errors. About 5 months later, the whole Daily Weather Summary is updated to include late-arriving data and any validation made by the BoM. At that time the "C" flags are removed and the date at the end of this paragraph will be set about 5 months later. More information on this section, what the quality flags mean and how the BoM validates data is here.

Prepared at 1418 EST on 08/12/2019.
