Bureau of Meteorology (BOM)

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) provides specialist weather advice to all Australians. The public can access near “real time” radar information including rain, wind, temperature and humidity information. Rain can be critical in the Australian winter in determining areas that may flood, whilst during our bush and grass fire danger period wind speed, direction, temperature and humidity are critical in forecasting the ferocity and direction of major fires.

A real example of Melbourne Weather Radar – not a day to be out in central Melbourne.

Most weather maps provide satellite photographs and rainfall trending, however this site also allows you to view lightning strikes, a very useful tool for those with radio antennae and towers in the air.
