Bom melbourne radar

The Bureau's ability to restore the radar display following an outage may be limited by the priority to maintain forecasting and warning services. Doppler observations are occasionally affected by multi path reflections off Melbourne City buildings and approaching rain bands. Summer thunderstorms that develop on the surrounding hills and mountains may be observed in detail. The location on the floor of a wide basin is ideal for Doppler observations which provide wind speed information. Similarly, cold fronts and associated rain and thunderstorms approaching from the northwest, through west and south are well detected. Dry apart from the slight 20% chance of drizzle in the northwest suburbs. These usually become more noticeable on cold, clear, winter nights or early winter mornings.

Medium 40% chance of drizzle, becoming less likely this afternoon. These appear as radials of incorrect Doppler velocities in the area to the northeast of the radar. The radar is on a tower 24m above ground level. Doppler observations can also reveal the presence of flocks of birds over Port Phillip Bay, which appear as thin lines, and generally have a higher velocity than the surrounding area. The chance of morning fog.

Summer thunderstorms that develop on the surrounding hills and mountains may be observed in detail. Occasionally, some permanent echoes will not be completely removed from the display. The chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening. These echoes may be distinguished from rain as they do not move with the wind and end abruptly at the shoreline of the bay. These usually become more noticeable on cold, clear, winter nights or early winter mornings. .

Possible rainfall: 0 to 1 mm Chance of any rain: 40% Melbourne area Humid. Similarly, cold fronts and associated rain and thunderstorms approaching from the northwest, through west and south are well detected. Possible rainfall: 2 to 10 mm Chance of any rain: 70% Melbourne area Humid. Because the radar has an unobstructed view of Port Phillip Bay out to about 25km, sea-clutter may be seen over the bay during strong winds. Geographical Situation; The radar is situated on the western plains of the Melbourne basin some 19km west-south-west of the Central Business District, about six kilometres from the western shores of Port Phillip bay and on a low rise about 20m above mean sea level. Doppler observations are occasionally affected by multi path reflections off Melbourne City buildings and approaching rain bands.

The high ground from the east, through north and to the south west tends to obscure shallow rain falling further away. Occasionally, some permanent echoes will not be completely removed from the display. Doppler observations can also reveal the presence of flocks of birds over Port Phillip Bay, which appear as thin lines, and generally have a higher velocity than the surrounding area. The chance of a thunderstorm about the nearby hills in the afternoon. The chance of morning fog in the northwest suburbs. Medium 60% chance of showers, most likely in the morning. Non-meteorological aspects; In most cases the processing of the radar signal removes permanent echoes caused by obstructions such as hills, buildings and other solid objects rather than rainfall.

For some major cities the Bureau can ensure the quality of its forecasting services through access to secondary radars that may not always be accessible on this site. The location on the floor of a wide basin is ideal for Doppler observations which provide wind speed information. Meteorological Aspects; The radar is well sited to provide very good coverage for the Greater Melbourne Metropolitan Area. Because the radar has an unobstructed view of Port Phillip Bay out to about 25km, sea-clutter may be seen over the bay during strong winds. The high ground from the east, through north and to the south west tends to obscure shallow rain falling further away. The Great Dividing Range dominates the topography from the east, through the north to the west.
