About Weatherzone Radar
Distance and latitude/longitude coordinates are displayed when you mouse over the map. The origin for distance measuring is indicated by a red dot and defaults to either your location, if specified and in range, or the location of the radar/the centre of the map. The origin may be changed by clicking elsewhere on the map.

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.
Some people affected by Cyclone Debbie say they are frustrated they have not been able to return to their damaged properties in north Queensland.
As emergency services build a picture of the destruction wrought by Cyclone Debbie, 61,000 remain without power and Mackay may have only 24 hours of clean water remaining.
South-east Queensland is set for a drenching on Thursday with rainfall in excess of 200 millimetres possible in some localised areas, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned.
