About this table

  • These observations have not been quality controlled.
  • Reporting schedules:
    • These observations are updated daily around 10 am local time and again at 11:30 am to capture any late observations. Most stations report daily.
    • Maximum and minimum temperatures, rainfall, evaporation and wind run are for the period to 9 am on the day of reporting.
    • Soil temperatures and Delta-T are current at the time of observation.
    • If the period since the last evaporation observation is more than 24 hours, the time in hours since the last observation is shown in brackets after the station name.
    • Sunshine and solar radiation are for the previous day.
  • 'Terr min' is Terrestrial minimum temperature. It is the lowest overnight temperature measured at ground level.
  • 'Delta-T' is Wet Bulb Depression (current Air Temperature - Wet Bulb Temperature) at 9 am. About Delta-T
  • 'Tce' is a trace (<0.1mm) of rainfall.
  • 'Evaporation' is the amount of water loss by evaporation, measured in millimetres per day.
  • 'Wind run' is the length of air passing the station each day.
  • 'Sunshine hours' are the total number of hours of sunshine for that day.
  • The solar radiation values shown are derived from the GOES-9 satellite.
    The Solar Radiation Map shows the areas where data is and is not available.
    Any use of the solar radiation estimates requires acknowledgement of the source of the raw satellite data. See details.
  • '-' indicates that no data is available.
