Quality Highest monthly temperatures are obtained by taking the highest of the observed maximum temperatures for individual days of a given month. The daily maxima are currently derived from temperature sensors sampling at 1 second intervals. If less than 25 days are available in any month, the monthly figure is flagged and removed from the State of Environment dataset.
