Radar Details

Eucla Weather Watch and Windfinding Radar
Western Australia
31.6810°S  128.8920°E  108m AMSL

LocationEucla Meteorological Office Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability2100-0700; 0900-1300; 1430-1900

There are no permanent echoes associated with the Eucla radar. During Summer, with moderate to heavy sea haze thrown up by the afternoon sea breezes, there may be quite heavy echoes developed up to 50 kilometres out to sea extending from ESE to SW. Any approaching weather, generally from the SW through to the NW, usually has well defined echoes at up to 300 kilometres range. Thunderstorm and rain areas associated with troughs during Spring and Summer are quite noticeable and easily tracked. Heavy rain directly over the radar site can cause attenuation of all signals. Path attenuation can also occur when the radar beam passes through intense rainfall, with the returned signals from cells further along that path reduced.
