Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for the month of September, 1870.
In many respects the weather this month deviated from the September
average. The barometer was considerably above the mean, and very fluctuating.
The wind was in more constant motion than usual, but below the
average strength. Temperature was above the average. Rainfall was considerably
above the mean, though it fell on fewer days. Ozone was much
below the average. Nevertheless, though the mortality was but little short
of double the number that occurred in September, 1869 (which, however,
was the smallest for any month in the year for the 13 years recorded), yet
it was above twelve per cent, less than the average of the previous 13 years'
