My weather station at Buller is on Wunderground with a 5 minute interval:


It reads a bit warmer than the AWS due being a bit lower & less exposed and also building radiant heat, but good to see the trends.

Annoying there isn't a graph for air pressure, there is on my software backend but I'm not sure I can share that without logging in.

Just had a few drops ,less than 1mm ,but temp dropped from 10.3c to 8.4c over last 30 minutes at the High Perch.
Radar looks like moisture now coming through Tumut ,Talbingo ,Kiandra so not far away. Doesn't look much from the south or southwest though.

It can do but your pressure isn't being tabled (a screenshot of yours). Looks like you need to specifically link the data to the app.

Here's a local PWS near me:

Cool. Next time I'm up there I'll log in to the unit and see if I can get it to push that as a field to Wunderground.

I can share the Ecowitt data but the share link expires every 30 days and it also shares the internal temps, which pretty much shows whether we are there or not and I don't really want that data in the wild.

Mines from a cheap chinese camera, which I would happily put live online, but all the solutions I have tried don't seem that reliable.

All my obs pics (and everything else) are just off the iPhone.

Meantime I note that low cloud has been hanging around PV at low levels and has thickened here as well. Slowly it is changing but temps remain mild for now.

Yeah, my Ecowitt data has internal temp, but my Wunderground data doesnt https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/ISYDNE921

Here is the Sydney pressure drop since Monday

This isn't a southerly system, and besides we're rainshadowed from that direction. Look instead to the west.

Obs just from the verandah….

It’s so still and calm with not a breath of wind. Can hear the river running through the fog. Visibility obviously low. Mild temps at around 5 degrees. Just a sprinkling of rain overnight.
