2015 – Cyclone Marcia
Well as some of you know I wanted to resurrect my site. I wanted to set up my weather station again a start providing data once again. When i was in the middle of setting up the instrumentation, i ended up dropping my cluster shattering the instruments. I will resurrect the site when the new version of my weather station will be running on a Raspberry pi. This way i will not have a virtual machine running which was unstable to keep it running.
I wanted to add a few things about the recent cyclone so I will add as I go along.
Here is a video i made of the scans from the recent BOM scans from Mackay to the end in Brisbane.
We had around 205mm in this event in the Redlands.
