These pages have been dramatically
updated, though mainly behind the scenes so probably not readily
apparent, but now offer better service mainly due to Arduino, Oregon Scientific
and all the brilliant people who figured these things out!! Grazie ragazzi!!!
No fuss graphs that are easy to read and crosscheck. Align the
graphs through the day to correlate the variations.
No need to hunt around, the best style of info made easy. Read
this graph in conjunction with the wind direction below.
Now using the more reliable Oregon temperature sensors.
Wind Direction is Averaged over groups of sixteen readings and
now with more focused information. Turbulence effects reduced. To see
how it was done click here!
This is a record of the last 15 days of rain. We will also be be
soon publishing daily rain fall on a annual basis as well.
This is the 12hr relative humidity and when it gets around the
30-40% in summer that is real bush fire danger time!!
These graphs have been extensively updated with an
Arduino and 433Mhz Receiver
(in my shed 24/7) intercepting my Oregon Scientific WMR86
signals from the three sensor units (reporting
Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Temperature and Rainfall from off my roof)
with such reliability and versatility, that the handy OS LCD Console can
be dedicated to the kitchen bench!!!
I have added my own Air Pressure sensor, Temperature and a Humidity
sensor to the Arduino base station as a backup system.
The Rain graph now shows the total rain that has fallen in LTB from
"Now" back to the last 15 days ago.
program Arduino system works
with the WMR86, or the WMR200 V3.0 type sensors
, as they are the
The engineering in the Oregon
systems is very good and excellent value for price.
The weather has also been effecting our roads with the Princes Highway
between Lakes Entrance and the Lake Tyers Beach turn off having a major
upgrade due to water causing subsidence in the road. Check
to see what a dip of a few centimeters can mean in
civil engineering terms!
This reporting service does not pretend to be a forecasting page, it
just shows as accurately as possible what has happened over the last
12 hours (or 15 days for rain). You can form you own opinions based on
your own local knowledge, for example - what it will be like on the
lake or surf after 7hours of a 30km Easterly wind? However if you are
looking for a prediction rather than what really happens, try
