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 MX v3.2.0 (3056)

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".
