About ACCESS Regional
Australian Community Climate and Earth-System Simulator (ACCESS). Based upon the UK Met Office Unified Model system. ACCESS R is the regional numerical forecast model operated by the BoM. It is run twice daily (00Z and 12Z) and provides forecast data out to 72 hours with a horizontal resolution of 12km and 70 vertical levels.
Record-breaking rain is causing flooding over parts of Western Australia this week, while parched Perth misses out once again.
As temperatures push above 35 degrees along the east coast, what does the extreme heat do to tyres driving on hot, often bubbling roads? Bitumen absorbs the summer heat, often making road surfaces more than 20 degrees hotter than air temperatures.
Radio transmitters have been inserted into the stomachs of 24 feedlot cattle to monitor their body temperatures, as part of a three-month trial investigating the impact of heatwaves.
