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 Himawari-8/9 satellites.
    The Daily Solar Exposure Map shows the areas where data is and is not available.
  • '-' indicates that no data is available.
