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.
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.
The Bureau of Meteorology also provide a radar weather service from a number of locations in Victoria. Click on the links below to view weather radar in Melbourne, Mildura (north west corner of the State), Yarrawonga (north of Melbourne on the border between Victoria and New South Wales) and Mount Gambier (south east corner of South Australia, bordering Victoria).
