William Creek weather station available online
The weather station at William Creek is up and running and the data is available online thanks to a joint initiative by the SA Arid Lands NRM Board and the Outback Communities Authority (OCA).
The Marla/Oodnadatta Natural Resources Management Group had lobbied for the weather station to fill a gap in weather data and forecasting in the region, with the closest weather stations in Oodnadatta, Coober Pedy and Marla – all more than several hundreds of kilometres away.
While the SA Arid Lands NRM Board purchased the weather station through funding from the National Landcare Program, OCA has made a commitment to take over its long-term management.
The William Creek weather station provides 15-minute data updates, the ability to view information by table or chart depending upon user preference, rainfall amount, wind speed and direction and humidity. Information and weather data on the website is available for yesterday, current day, past week, past month, and past year, as well as providing information on current warnings.
The NRM Weather Network website is mobile-friendly and will reformat to suit mobile phone and tablet screens, allowing landholders to access local weather information while on the go in the field.
