Gauging the rainfall for the last 100-years

By Meg Kennedy

A family that has recorded rainfall for

more than a century has been officially
acknowledged by the Australian Bureau of
Meteorology (BOM).
John Molesworth was thanked on behalf of the
Molesworth family at a ceremony on Friday,
30 August, for their dedication to measuring
rainfall at the historic Ballark homestead.
The Molesworths have recorded rainfall since
1889, with records contributing to Australia’s
national climate database.
Representatives of BOM visited the
picturesque property in Morrisons to present
the Molesworth family with a memento
barometer plaque, an official document from
BOM, and a record of every year of rainfall
recorded by the Molesworth family.
“Efforts like these – and particularly the long-
term, reliable efforts – it may only be a little bit
of time every day, it really adds up,” said BOM
State Manager Dr Andrew Tupper.
“Long term climate records are gold for our
climatologists, our examination of climate
change and of natural variability, and our
understanding of place,” he said.
“The Bureau may be the custodian of the
climate record, but volunteers like the
Molesworth’s have helped make it happen.”
Mr Molesworth said he checks the rain gauge

“These days, people look at their phones, and
they’re all expects on the weather; [for] farmers,
weather is a really important management of
farming,” he said.
Although he’s been observing the weather for
decades, Mr Molesworth has doubts about the
current discourse around global warming and
climate change.
“People are saying we’re heading for disaster…
the climate is forever changing, but I believe it’s
all happened before, what we’re going through
now,” he said.
“My father before me, he took a lot of notice
of the weather; he also said if we knew more
about nature, we’d know a lot more about the
