This station uses NZ Meteorological Standards, a "day" is from 9am to 9am of the following day.
So if you want to see the overnight low temp after 9am you will need to look in yesterday's extreme conditions. For the same reason the daily report for the current month is not available until 9:15am on the following day.
When the wind blows from an Easterly direction, it may be indicated as coming from the West or Norwest, because this stations location is sheltered by a hill from the East and receives instead a wind from the opposite direction.
Status report: Still awaiting parts to fix Solar Sensor and Lightning Detector.
