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:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: bom
