Weather Stations

All stations are not created equally: Some have limited or no readings (temperature, wind speed, rainfall etc.), while others have limited or no forecasts. Stations are also updated at different intervals: some stations are updated every 30 minutes while others are updated hourly or daily by BOM.  It has also been observed that some station activity cease for extended periods.  If you’re unlucky enough to hit one of these, it is best to manually select a station that you can use for all you readings.

The approximate location of the current weather station can be viewed in the Maps application by selecting “Approximate Location” from the station detail screen menu.


Due to the implementation of the Maps application the location may initially show your current location for some reason, just go back and select it again to zoom to the station location.
