Daily Weather Summary Archive and Index 2006
  • National temperature, rainfall and wind extremes are available for every day. Use the links at left.
  • Descriptions of weather events are written a day or more after the event to give time for accurate information to become available. The headlines are listed below, and in Weather Events on the home page. For weather news as it breaks, I can recommend the ABC weather page.
  • Events are classed as major, newsworthy or significant.
  • A date with no entries means events for this day have not yet been recorded. Any significant events may be written up later.
  • Information often becomes available weeks or months after an event. If this results in a new story, it is listed in the Weather Events headlines on the home page. If it results in an update to an existing story, an sticker appears beside the headline below for about a week.
