The information on this page fills gradually as it becomes available.

For weather news as it breaks, the sites on the Weather and Climate Media Reports page are recommended.


Provisional records set or equalled today

Obvious errors have been corrected, however this is realtime data which has not yet been validated. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1427 EST on 20/01/2019.

1 N C Previous record set yesterday. Although validated, the 31.8 record on 30/11/1981 has many factors that suggest it was in error, as were other temperatures in September to December 1981. That would make today's maximum of 31.6 the island's all-time hottest day.
