Fern frond by ~Aquila~


This website displays weather information from the suburb of Latham in the Australian Capital Territory. The weather station in use is a Davis Vantage Pro2, and these pages are updated every 5 minutes. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight.

The weather graphs are generated automatically by Cumulus v3.0.0 (3047)

Latitude: S 35° 13' 00" Longitude: E 149° 01' 22" Elevation: 577 m

Updates to site based on change to Vantage Pro2 and Raspberry Pi 3

Future Plans

Am considering changing the theme of the page yet again. I have been inspired by the new local interface of CumulusMX. Some changes may be subtle. Some may be "more interesting".
