About Truganina Weather

This page provides an overview of our PWS and summarises the key aspects of our operations.

Background & Purpose

The owner/operator of Truganina Weather is a qualified Meteorologist. Employed by the ABOM for 38 years, we specialised in marine meteorology after 10 years as an operational weather forecaster. At retirement, our global peers acknowledged our long leadership of international groups that coordinated national marine meteorological and oceanographic observing programs.

The purpose of our PWS is "to pursue a passion for observing the weather that began in 1967". The objectives of our PWS and website are to:

  1. Record quality assured daily weather data from Truganina for personal interest and analysis,
  2. Provide quality assured real-time weather data to weather exchange networks,
  3. Provide website visitors with quality assured and useful local weather and climate data, and
  4. Provide website visitors with complementary weather products and information about weather-related subjects.
