hey, not sure which forum thread this would fall under so move it if you need mods
in the perth surf report section, the weather conditions part and quite possibly the 24 hr wind data are sourced from the wrong place
it says the weather station is Bellambi Pt which is on the East Coast i'm pretty sure, At least there isn't one in perth. Should the data not be sourced from the Swanbourne station so that the readings are actually for perth and not Wollongong
hope this helps
hey louis, yeah there's a few locations that seem to be mapped incorrectly - which is annoying as I spent a long time individually mapping each surf report to the most appropriate weather station, rather than each location choosing the 'closest' weather station. Not sure how this happened.
We've also got problems with some of the Vic tides, which are referencing Geelong rather than Port Phillip Heads - hope to have all of those issues sorted shortly.
yeah its looking at the sububre of scarborough in wollongong which obviously has a weather station real close to it being Bellambi Point, whereas the closest weather station to scarborough beach in perth is almost down near cottesloe (15 mins down the coast)
thanks for looking at it
yeah on a different topic weres all the swell gone i can't hang out for too much longer doesn't seem like theres much down south either.
Perth Surf Report: Friday, 12 March 2010
Clean, but overcast conditions with a small rise in swell. The Rotto buoy has peaked at about 1.25m providing 1-2 foot waves at the "Point of no return".
Winds are 10-15knots from the E/NE, so great conditions with an incoming tide and a variance of about .40m.
May see a kick in swell late Saturday heading into Sunday.
Last night saw the hottest Perth night since 1964!!!
Nice morning for a swim - but not at the point where the likelyhood of being run over is a reality.
