LocationMarburg Radar TypeWSR 74 S Band Typical Availability24 hours
Situated at 370m on the Little Liverpool Range between Marburg and Rosewood and 53 km west of the Brisbane GPO this radar has a good overall view of precipitation in all sectors. However, there is some restriction on detection of low level precipitation in a narrow sector to the west southwest and over the Greater Brisbane Area. It is a fairly sensitive radar and sometimes detects virga (precipitation that does not reach the ground). This may give a false impression of rainfall affecting the area it covers.
A cold front has brought damaging wind gusts to parts of Victoria with more on the way.
Weather records for seven Queensland regions have been re-written, with Saturday's unseasonable temperatures setting the new benchmark for the hottest July day in seven locations, the Bureau of Meteorology says.
Residents are warned to take care outdoors as snow, hail and wind gusts send Tasmania into a big chill.
