Noteworthy weather today
significant newsworthy major

The graphics and statistical information on this page fill gradually as they become available. The page is updated every 30 minutes at about 15 and 45 minutes past the hour. The solar radiation chart becomes available about 2.15am EST next day, while the temperature charts, sunshine and some wind gust data become available about 2.15pm EST the next day.

I also add descriptions of the day's significant weather events in this box when there's reliable information available and when I have the time. This may be days or even years after the event! If you are looking for weather news as it happens, your best source is ABC News for general weather events, rainfall events, storms, cyclones, floods, snowfalls or bushfires.
