About Us

Pakenham Weather provides weather information, real-time observations and forecasts, for the community of Pakenham and surrounding suburbs by a qualified meteorologist. Pakenham Weather was established in January 2015 to assist greater Pakenham residents in day to day planning and events by providing valuable weather information.


About the Weather Station
Pakenham Weather observations are powered by an Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 professional weather station. The temperature and humidity sensor is mounted within a passive radiation shield at a height of 2.2m above ground level (AGL). Wind is measured by an anemometer (wind speed) and wind vane (wind direction) mounted above the roof line with an elevation of approximately 10 metres AGL and is reasonably exposed in most directions but tends to under-report wind speeds from the northwest to northeast due to higher topography situated to the north. Rainfall is recorded via a tipping bucket rain gauge with a resolution of 0.2mm per bucket tip and is mounted to the side of a pergola at a height of 2.2m AGL with good exposure from all directions.

Weather Station Location
The Personal Weather Station is situated 2.1 km northeast of the Pakenham town centre:
Latitude: 38.0618°S
Longitude: 145.4971°E
Elevation: 55m

Our Setup
The Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 professional weather station is connected to a dedicated laptop running Sandysoft's Cumulus weather station software that feeds real-time weather data dynamically into this website, while uploading real-time data to various weather networks and automatically formatting and posting weather information to Twitter.

Weather information is automatically posted to Twitter every hour on the hour which is then automatically posted to Facebook. Forecasts, warnings and alerts are also posted to predominantly the Facebook page but it must be stressed that not all warnings and alerts can be conveyed due to the volunteer nature of the service.
