The automatic weather station network is currently being upgraded. There are a few steps to this for each site so there will be periodic outages while the work is being done.
We apologise for the inconvenience but this work is necessary to maintain the network and its services. We’ll let you know when the upgrade has been completed.
To meet the needs of farmers, irrigators and land managers, the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board has invested in a network of weatherstations to capture and store information about weather and climate events around the region.
The Automatic Weather Station (AWS) network gathers data from 40 sites, building an accurate picture of current and historic weather conditions.
This allows land managers to make more informed decisions around irrigation scheduling, the application of agricultural sprays and fertilisers and harvest conditions.
Basic data collected includes rainfall, temperature, humidity, global solar radiation and wind speed and direction. Calculated indicators include dew point, apparent temperature, growing degree days, chill hours, frost, evapotranspiration, Delta-T, in-crop canopy temperature, and calculated minima, averages and maxima for most data sets.
A mobile-friendly version of the weatherstation network has been developed for those accessing information via a smart phone or tablet device. It is recommended that you save this link on your phone as a shortcut for easy access next time.
This initiative is funded by the the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board.
