BOM Australia

The bom weather platform uses the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) as a source for current (half-hourly) meteorological data.

To add the BOM weather platform to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

  - platform: bom

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give to the weather station.
  • station (Optional): The station ID string; defaults to the closest station. See the docs for details on how to find the ID of a station.

This platform is an alternative to the bom sensor. The weather platform is easier to configure but less customizable.
