Welcome to Ferny Grove weather a suburb in North West Brisbane, Queensland, Australia about 12km from Brisbane City and 20 km inland from the coast.

Station Status

A replacement system was installed on Wednesday 3 October and replaced the current system at 4:45 PM on Thursday 4 October. The data is measured much more accurately and differences are be expected from the existing observations. A comparison summary comparing the new system to the old system over the next several months will be available in the future.

Wind direction measurements were not available due to equipment failure at 11:00 AM on December 24 2017. This has caused the wind direction measurements to not record correctly and repeatedly record the same direction. This issue was resolved with the commissioning of the new system. However alternative wind measurements are provided on this page in a trial state as a temporary substitute but at a lower measuring frequency until 26 September 2018. In the near future this data will be provided on a separate web page. The station used for these measurement is less reliable which failed on the 26 September 2018 and outages during very high humidity occurred when manual observations are not available.

The weather station in use is the Davis Vantage Pro 2 which replaced a La Crosse WS-2306 on 4 October 2018, and the data is measured at 5 minute intervals except when the weather station software is running when it is measured each minute. These pages are usually updated twice daily usually at the start and end of most days. Note that these pages are not continually updated at a regular interval. However sometimes these pages do update regularly usually every 15 minutes especially during weekends and during notable weather. The meteorological day used at this station ends at midnight.

The sensors are sited in the best available locations of a suburban backyard. The temperature and humidity data collected by the La Crosse WS 2306 was sited in an over sheltered spot out of sunlight. Therefore the recordings are inaccurate but mainly for overnight readings. However manual measurements were also made using an additional sensor and this has more accurate overnight readings. At the present time these recordings are not available on this site at present but will be in future. This data and other data analysis may be also available upon request.

There will be 1min 32s more daylight tomorrow

Short term forecast*: Increasing clouds with little temperature change. Precipitation possible within 24 to 48 hours
