Recent Additions to Statistics List
~ In late June I began a general comments book for describing local weather conditions each day. I also intend
commenting on any extreme weather events that occur throughout Australia.
Instrument Alterations
~ On the 18th my anemometer was raised on our aerial a further 45cm (18 inches) or so on a new piece of pipe. The
anemometer appears to clear the peak of our roof (second story) by about 30cm (1 foot).
~ On the same day I also removed my weather stations rain gauge from our roof. I haven't recorded any acceptable
data for about the last 2 months or so - it seems a wire has broken inside it.
