Welcome to our Fig Tree Pocket weather site!

FTP Weather is an independent, privately owned weather station (PWS) and weather website. We publish to a number of weather sites, including live updates to Weather Underground, WeatherCloud (current), and Aust. Bureau of Meteorology / UK Met Office (Gold Award).

Operating since July 2014, our aim is to provide real-time, accurate weather data for the residents of and visitors to Fig Tree Pocket and the surrounding areas. Brisbane weather is usually great weather, but just to be sure our weather observations are made with an automated weather station, a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2 with an ISS with additional Solar radiation and UV sensors. These pages are updated every 5 minutes (with the exception of the gauges page which has 10 second updates).

Note: The meteorological day used for daily totals and minima/maxima at this station ends at midnight.
