If you ever find yourself travelling again in a post-COVID-19 world and you want to check what the weather’s doing back home, you’re in luck: Frankston’s Ballam Park is now home to a Bureau of Meteorology weather station.

The Frankston Automatic Weather Station, a joint project between the bureau and Frankston City Council, is the latest addition to the bureau’s network of 720 weather stations across Australia, its offshore islands and Antarctica and whose data is collected and shared with weather agencies around the world.

“We are so pleased that Ballam Park is home to this new station, which will measure rainfall, humidity, air pressure, temperature, wind direction and wind speed,” said Frankston City Mayor Sandra Mayer, pictured. “Next time you check your weather app or the local weather report, just think – the data probably came from Ballam Park.” 

Cr Mayer said data collected from the station would also contribute to historical logs outlining long-term weather patterns and changes. “We declared a climate emergency last year, and being armed with accurate information about how the local weather is changing is integral to our plans to prepare and protect our community.” 

The bureau’s Simon McCulloch said the Ballam Park weather station would complement the existing foreshore station. “It is much more representative of the wider Frankston area due to the fact it is located inland rather than at the foreshore,” Mr McCulloch said. “The existing station will continue to provide wind observations which represent bayside conditions and will continue to be important to local maritime users.

“Weather data from stations like Ballam Park are important as they feed into the global network of observations which helps us provide better weather forecasts.”
