Website update v2.1.0

We are pleased to announce the latest website update, bringing several enhancements to provide you with more comprehensive externally sourced weather information. Here is a summary of the changes made in version 2.1.0:

New Forecasts and Observations

Navigation Improvements

  • Added additional header navigation items to accommodate the new content.
  • Removed Dark Sky forecast pages, which are no longer functional, and replaced them with the new forecast pages.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where page scripts were not being loaded within the blog.
  • Corrected an unresolved issue of sun/night banding on some graphs, ensuring correct sun/night banding is applied when data is missing.
  • Improved the fix for the issue where the calm icon is not shown in calm winds on the home page.
  • Fixed an issue with the graph buttons on Website Analytics, ensuring they are upgraded for Bootstrap 5.
  • Addressed an issue with Data Upload Status on System Status page not showing the correct colour mode.


  • Implemented the load of theme and color mode to content after the page has loaded (required for the new Bom forecast page).

Homepage Changes:

  • Added to the home page BoM forecast for the Brisbane area and possible rainfall details as an on-hover feature for further information.
