We offer free weather information to help the farming, research and broader communities in the Riverina district in NSW. Current weather data (past 14 days) is available for free, and we can prepare more extensive information for a fee.
Weather information and summaries are provided for:
Data from all sites are currently unavailable. An alternative source of daily weather observations for the Riverina area is the Bureau of Meteorology .
These parameters are logged: wind-run, rainfall, solar irradiance, dry-bulb temperature, wet-bulb temperature (or relative humidity).
Collection of weather data in Griffith commenced in 1931 using manual observations. By 1970, manual data was being stored on punched cards.
In October 1981, continuous automatic collection of weather data from hourly readings commenced. Initially, these were stored temporarily on cassette tape and the tape read every few days.
In 1984, the automatic weather station on the meteorological lawn was connected by land line to a time-sharing PDP11 computer to log the data every five minutes, from which hourly data were derived.
In 1999 the weather system was updated to a NT system and stored in a central database.
