More of a question for the BOM, but you may know.

Albion Park has disappeared off observations and radar. Kiama is now in place.

Neither site is representative of what 90% of Illawarra residents would experience temperature wise. Both stations are right on the coastline, I mean right on.

Gone from BoM page! Itís only a new site (~20 odd years) surely theyíre not closing it?

Wait - isnít it being moved because of the M1 extension? Which in itself is frustrating cause the Illawarra has no longevity of climate records now (again with all stations under 40 years old).

Probably just a temporary outage (looks like it last reported on the 24th). Sites automatically disappear from the current observations page if they've been offline for a certain period of time (72 hours, if I recall correctly).

Blair - are you able to confirm itís being moved? I thought Iíd read in the M1 extension blurb that it had to be moved?

Will see what I can find out when I'm back at work next week. If it is moved I would imagine it would be to somewhere else in the airport precinct.
