NOAA Official : 124 Degrees In The Tasmanian Mountains

I was looking at the entire temperature record for Australia this morning, and noticed two very hot temperatures in 2019.

NOAA reports 123F at Warra, Tasmania on January 30, 60F on January 31, and 124F on February 1.

Warra is located in the southern mountains of Tasmania 43 degrees south and 1,636 feet elevation. The average maximum temperature for January/February was 70F including the two bogus hot readings, or 68F without them.

A little official government comedy to start the day.

    The department of marxist propaganda is getting desperate.
    Keep up the good work Tony.
    For my children and grandchildren.
    Thank you.

    Tony, thanks for this tip.
    Ken of Ken’s Kingdom has been doing a full bore check up on the BOM, Bureau Of Misinformation’s weather station sites across Australia
    So far he has found 59 that are NOT compliant with BOM’s own official guidelines for such sites. They are in South Australia, Tasmania, NSW wit lots more to be checked out from Qld, WA, NT and the ACT.
    But so far Walla in Tasmania is not on the list. I will check it out now you have showed something big s wrong.

    PS : Could you provide your temp data in centigrade as well as Fahrenheit ? Hardly any Aussies born after 1974 know Fahrenheit temp scale. It’s all metric here since 1974…

    Must have been that Tasmanian Devil, messing with the thermometer.

    Tony, Yes I made a typo ! After midnight when I wrote that comment.

    But folks here is real news : !the BOM has now hidden the Warra weather station temperature web link. When I looked this morning again on the BOM’s Climate Data web site, to look over the temp records, the station was not listed at all, not by name or area.

    I only found it again by going through my web history from last night. And then it popped up to see again. .
    Here is the link for you all : http://www.bom.gov.au/jsp/ncc/cdio/weatherData/av?p_nccObsCode=122&p_display_type=dailyDataFile&p_startYear=&p_c=&p_stn_num=097024

      Interesting. And look at Feb 1. Empty! The reach is expanding. Climateers are monitoring this site.

      I found the monthly data fairly easily. The max temp is blank for Jan 30th.

      http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/dwo/201901/html/IDCJDW7058.201901.shtml

      Archive Org has a snapshot of the same page taken July 31st and the max temp is also blank on that for the day of Jan 30th. If you thumb through some months you see generally a few blank days each month. It’s a tree monitoring station so I guess so long as the trees are still there each morning, a few missing temperature readings aren’t such a big deal.

      Obviously the Australian BOM knows there is something wrong with the reading on that day … not sure how it could get into the GHCN data. Check what they are doing with other blank days.

        What is a “Tree monitoring Station ”

        I don’t think the trees need to be advised of the temperature and the rainfall.

        If it doesn’t rain the Eucalyptus regnans trees simply don’t grow. Simple.

        I suggest that the BOM is actually trying to have a weather station record NOT affected by Urban Heat Island Effect.

        And given it’s poor record at doing this, that’s good idea. But a Tony has shown, even this is sort of gazzumped by faulty equipment.

          https://warra.com/research/

          They have a website explaining more details … you could have found that!

          If it doesn’t rain the Eucalyptus regnans trees simply don’t grow. Simple.

          That’s exactly the sort of thing they discover at Warra. They probably know more about it than you, me, and just about anyone. Feel free to browse their research papers.

          Timber is worth money to Tasmanians and there’s not a lot of other jobs on offer … so getting a PhD in watching grass grow can be the first step to advancement.

          Australian governments spend plenty of money on much sillier things than tree monitoring.

    Climateers keen to know the extent of BOM’s misinforming
    Should keep abreast of Ken’s work on Wacky BOM weather Stations
    https://kenskingdom.wordpress.com/
    59 separate posts for 59 stations & counting shown to NON COMPLIANT with the BOM’s own guidelines.
    And thus the temperature data cannot be relied on for accuracy.
    The first post for Mt Barker in South Australia, is for the BOM weather station 150 meters away over my back fence. And so we then had photographic evidence of non compliance.
