Floodwatch plot for station 540440

Last reading = -0.89m - steady    (40 minutes ago at 06:30 18/02/2020) Currently the BOM data is only updated at 10 past and 40 past the hour :o(
 
Previous reading (1 hour 11 minutes ago at 18/02/2020 05:59) = -0.89m
 
Average last 5 readings = -0.89m   (over last 4 hours 15 minutes)

There is a problem with calibration of the gauge because it is below the bridge. Water backs up behind the bridge and reaches the road, but below the bridge it is still relatively low and that's what the guage reads. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this except to allow a "fudge factor" which I have now done.
The Bureau of Meteorology has changed the way they display creek water levels which can be confusing if you aren't aware. The road level is 0.00m. Positive numbers e.g. 0.37m mean the water is above the road. Negative numbers e.g. -0.86m are below the road. So -0.99m is actually lower than -0.86m
Record height = 4.19m at 21:36 30/03/2017 (since 1/1/2009)
