Radar Details

Mildura Wind Finding and Weather Watch Radar
Victoria
34.2330°S  142.0830°E  53m AMSL

LocationMildura Airport Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability0000-0300; 0430-0900; 1030-1500; 1630-2100; 2230-0000

The Mildura radar has a very good view in all directions as there are no significant geographic features in the area. Its only limitations are those common to all C Band radar, that is that if there are large thunderstorms around, the radar will not be able to detect accurately the strength of storms located behind the closest storms. This will also lead to the underestimation of the strength, at times, of very intense isolated storms. False echoes are sometimes observed very close to the radar especially in stable conditions. Echoes within five or so kilometres of the radar and overhead are poorly resolved as the scanning elevation is too low.
