Weather Industry News BoM announces improvements to long-range forecasts and radar service
Fri 23 Aug 2019

From 29 August, there will be major changes to the Bureau of Meteorology's climate outlooks, currently issued twice monthly for the month and three month periods ahead.

The rainfall and temperature outlooks will include additional weekly and fortnightly periods as well as the current monthly and three-monthly periods. The temperature outlooks will also include difference from average maps. The one and two-week outlooks will be updated on Mondays and Thursdays, while the one and three month forecasts will be updated weekly on Thursdays.

From 24 August, all radars will be available to view full-time. Up to now, some radars have split their duties between being available to public view and being used by the BoM to track weather balloons to measure upper atmosphere conditions up to four times a day. The last of these wind-finding radars, including those at Hobart and Perth Airports, Wagga Wagga, Alice Springs, Gove, Broome, Esperance and Norfolk Island, have been upgraded so that they are now available for full-time public weather-watch duties.


Provisional records set or equalled today

These records are from real time data that is unchecked and may pick up errors as well as true records. They are checked and obvious errors corrected over the next few days, and marked "C" for "Checked" in the comments column. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1406 EST on 24/08/2019.
