The site coordinates appear to be of low precision, and the station may be anywhere within the marked area. Clicking within the map area (or you can drag the 'ORAQ' marker) will display the latitude/longitude of that point.
If the displayed location (or elevation) of the weather observing location is incorrect, please drag the marker to the right location (or click in the right location), and then send the updated information. Please note that we are trying to spot either the Stevenson Screen (or equivalent) or the location where the barometric readings are taken.
The location information for this site was gathered from 3 data sources. The source which most closely matches the consensus is chosen. Many of these sources only report the location to the nearest minute (or hundredth of degree). This can lead to the marker being placed noticeably incorrectly. Please see Discussion of Location Errors for more information. Show location history.
