Off my weather station. AFAIK the airport is exposed to a sea breeze where as we in the western burbs are not, hence the temperature difference.

I did notice that the other weather stations around me on Wunderground were also recording upper 30ís on Tuesday

Both of my weather stations recorded less than 34 outside and I am in Cranbrook near the river, you must have more urban heat in your area.

Not sure where the BOM put the time, but if you go to the observations section for Townsville on Weatherzone (you'll need to sign up) there is an interactive graph showing the temperature over the last 24hrs and if you hover over it, it will show the temp and time for the reading.

For the record, the AP reached 34.7C at 12:20pm on the day in question.

While youíre on the topic of weather stations, I need to find one for roughly around the $100 mark. I know itís entry level $$$ we are talking about but I need to offer suggestions for my secret Santa present.

I see the Holman and Instrument Choice offerings, and one from Maxkon. Whatís peopleís thoughts on those brands?

Put the model numbers into google with "review" and you should get the info you need.
