Hey Ladies and Gentlemen,

I asking if anyone knows how to post images in the forum overall to a post with out having to type it as a link and it posting as a link. I want to attach it here in the post itself so when I post it appears under the post. I sure this has been asked but haven't been on here for a long time and things have changed so could do with some help?

I know this has probably been posted before but would be appreciated as can't be stuffed going through pages of topics to find were the last one would have been posted.

Cheers smile

Hi everyone,

Complete noobie question ;

I'm wondering why maximum temps in the current past 5 days area aren't correct as listed at Goulburn Airport.

As an example it lists the maximum temp for January 26 as 30.7C which is absolutely wrong @ 1530 the temp was 40.3C.

Additionally, that temp is a record Temp for January since records have been kept @ Goulburn airport and it also hasn't registered as a record.


Apologies if I've used the wrong area of the forum to ask these questions.

Thanks Guys

Kat-C

On WZ, the temps (and YTD & Almanac) shown for Goulburn for the past 5 days come from BOM's Goulburn TAFE weather station and not from Goulburn Airport AWS (because the TAFE weather station is closest to the point designated as Goulburn). So there'll be differences in the temps recorded at the two sites.

In the case of the incorrect Jan 26th temp of 30.7 that is still showing up the WZ page, it has already been removed from the Goulburn TAFE obs on BOM: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/dwo/IDCJDW2174.latest.shtml (it would have been very obviously incorrect as the 9am temp was already 33.3)
Goulburn Airport's obs on BOM show the maximum that day was 40.6: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/dwo/IDCJDW2049.latest.shtml

The 40.6 breaks the previous January record of 40.4 in 1999 at Goulburn Airport (http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/averages/tables/cw_070330_All.shtml). But these record highs (or lows) aren't changed instantaneously. It takes some time (it could be weeks).

Hope that helps you.

Perhaps someone could explain the correlation between the Summary in the forecast and the rainfall prediction. For example Eildon forecast for Sat 23rd March Summary = Showers, Chance of rain = 60% amount of rain 1-5 mm Forecast for Sun 24th March = Summary = Possible Showers, Chance of rain = 90% amount of rain = 10-20mm.

One would expect from the language that "possible showers" would indicate rain is less likely than "showers" and yet the estimates of likelihood and amounts seem contrary.
